He did so while making an appearance on the show of WWE NXT analyst Pat McAfee that airs on DAZN. He started out by stating that competition is great and understands that AEW is coming to Wednesday nights and want to put on the best show they can.
He did acknowledge that they had been in discussions with various networks about moving NXT and growing it.
He thought it was the right time to make the move. He wouldn’t say whether it’s a war or not but he doesn’t see it being in a competitive nature.
Instead, he sees it being WWE putting on the best show possible and that at the end of the day, the winners are the fans.
“They will choose what they want to watch. I’m confident in NXT, I’m confident in the talent, there’s not one person I would trade anybody for. I can look at that show and say bring your best, we will and good luck.”
Although WWE NXT will start to air on the USA Network starting September 18th, the show will only move to the network for two hours starting on October 2nd, which is the same night as the debut episode of AEW on TNT.
