The NXT Champion recently had an interview with Fox Sports, where he talked about a number of things and also commented on going head to head against the upstart promotion on the same night of the week.
Cole said that he doesn’t mean to speak for the people at AEW but he has a feeling that they also want to make their show the best wrestling program on Wednesdays:
“I don’t mean to speak for them, but I have a strong feeling this is how they feel, because I know at NXT we have a strong focus on making sure it is the best possible show that we can make it on Wednesday’s and that’s all we have the energy to focus on. And I’m sure those guys feel the exact same way.”
Cole went on to say that this is exciting for the wrestling fans because they will get to compare and watch both the events. The move to Wednesday night means more eyes to the product.
