NXT and AEW haven't gone head-to-head since NXT moved to Tuesdays in April, but now the idea is that there will be more in-ring action or more time for angles to take place.

While Meltzer is unable to confirm the following story, he says, "the story that has gone around" is that Michaels' wife Rebecca thought entrances were too long and gave people time to switch channels. Michaels brought the note to Triple H and changes were made.
