John Cena, Triple H, and Roman Reigns were just a few of the many stars who reacted to the big news on Tuesday.
That news was the fact that WWE is airing NXT and USA Network today announced an agreement in principle to air WWE’s weekly Wednesday night show, NXT, live on USA Network at 8/7c starting September 18.
The move was done to counter-program AEW, which will air their weekly TV series on TNT starting Wednesday, October 2nd. You can see the reactions here:
A lot of time has been spent in the trenches with the men and women I was in @WWENXT with. From armories to the main event of #WrestleMania, we’ve come along way. And we’ll always be @WWENXT. #WeAreNXT https://t.co/XurUzTyLRL

A long step away from “developmental system down in Florida.” From the first #NXTArRIVAL on @WWENetwork to a weekly television show on @USA_Network. Congratulations to @WWE and @WWENXT! https://t.co/zJNt5FANBI
