During the interview, she spoke about going up against NXT. AEW will premiere on TNT and crown the first-ever AEW Women’s Champion on October 2nd.
WWE officially announced that NXT will be airing on the USA Network starting Wednesday, September 18th. As a result, this means starting in October, NXT will go head-to-head with AEW.
“I definitely can’t speak for them and their business planning and thinking, but as far as AEW is concerned we’re all for it. We are excited to be on Wednesday night. We’ve got amazing things lined up. We can’t wait to get to air. We’re actually on the TNT campus right now with a ton of meetings and going over all sorts of aspects of rolling into Oct. 2. It’s a wild and great time for everyone. Our fans are going to be shocked, satiated and I think they will keep coming back for more.”
