One of the things that have taken the wrestling world by storm in the past year is the war between AEW and NXT. The upstart promotion which only formed at the beginning of 2019 has been giving tough competition to WWE‘s third brand.
However talking about the competition between these two shows, Mick Foley claimed that NXT has advantage over AEW because the guys at the Black and Yellow brand have been groomed for the bigger stage:
“NXT‘s advantage is that their guys have been trained to work for the camera, and I think they have an advantage of having more seasoned stars and now a dedicated team writing for them, But in the end it comes to down to who has the ability to tell better long-term stories and get the audience engaged.”
Elsewhere in the interview, Foley also discussed how AEW stars want to put on the best match they can whenever they are in the ring but he explained that this doesn’t necessarily lead to the best promotion.
Mick Foley detailed his comments recalling how WWE officials told him to save his hardcore stuff for the big matches and he claimed that it improved his longevity.
Apart from this, the Hardcore Legend also talked about the difference between Bray Wyatt’s Fiend character and his old one. You can check out his comments on the matter at this link.
