Cody Rhodes isn't worried about what NXT is doing because there could be a larger plan in place.
According to reports, NXT will be moving to Tuesdays beginning April 13. NXT and AEW have been running head-to-head on most Wednesday nights since AEW Dynamite premiered on TNT on October 2, 2019.
When asked about NXT's potential move while appearing on Action Sports Jax, Cody said, "We have destroyed them for over a year now in that space. Them leaving, perhaps that opens up a different viewership for us on Wednesdays. We're not reactionary to their booking and won't change anything we do with what they decide to do on Wednesdays. There are a lot of smart people who work for WWE and perhaps they are planning something else, maybe it's Wednesday Night Raw for all I know. I'm not assuming their white flag, moving to Tuesday nights, is a true white flag. I'll wait and see. In the interim, we'll continue to come up with new content, great stories, and make new kings and queens on our roster. If you're ever backstage at AEW no one is talking about our competition."
Ahead of AEW Revolution on a media call, Cody said that if NXT does decide to move, AEW could put out a "wonderful statement," poking fun at the statement WWE put out following the debut of AEW Dynamite. You can find his full comments by clicking here.
