Cody Rhodes talks Wednesday Night War.
On Tuesday, WWE announced NXT would be moving to USA Network beginning on Sept. 18. The time slot will put NXT directly up against AEW, which premieres on TNT on Oct. 2. Speaking to Bleacher Report, AEW Co-Executive Vice President Cody Rhodes gave his thoughts on AEW vs. NXT.
"I think the most important night in all of wrestling is now Wednesday nights," Rhodes said. "The best wrestling is going to be happening on Wednesday nights. It's destination TV, and when's the last time wrestling was destination TV? It's now must-watch, and I'm not going to complain about that. ... Wrestling fans now have a choice, and I hope they choose us."
Cody continued, "I'm oddly intrigued to see what Vince McMahon does with NXT. My dad was instrumental in building the NXT brand. For a long time, it had been a developmental project. For Vince to now bring it to the USA Network as if it's a full brand, I'm just intrigued by it."
