Since the debut of AEW Dynamite on October 2, 2019, the show has gone head-to-head with NXT for the majority of its run. AEW has consistently outperformed NXT in terms of viewership and demographic rating during their time against each other.
NXT will reportedly be moving to Tuesday beginning April 13, which would bring an end to the Wednesday Night Wars.
Speaking to Forbes, Tony Khan gave his thoughts on NXT potentially moving nights.
“I don’t know if that’s a real thing or not, but it would be great to be unopposed and I’d love to have an unopposed audience. When we have, we’ve done some really good numbers and I think that would be awesome," he said.
WWE has not officially confirmed NXT moving to Tuesdays.
On the comparisons of the Monday Night Wars between WWE Raw and WCW Nitro in the 90s, Khan said, “I think it’s—like sports fans—it’s a healthy thing. I think there was maybe more of this [online bickering] during the Monday Night Wars on the internet than people might have realized. As I got older, I went through phases. From probably Age 12 through Age 15, most of my life was online, and most of my time spent was spent on wrestling online...so it was a lot like this, actually. There were people that were very strong on one side or the other, and there were some people who were really 100% one way or the other, 90% one way or the other; 80%, whatever. And you leaned one way or another. I think there were a lot of people like that on the internet, but there just were way less people on the internet. When I was a kid it was pretty much firing back and forth, very similar.”
As for AEW, the company is set for its Revolution event on Sunday, March 7. You can view the current lineup for the event by clicking here.
