During the interview, Hall was asked about the reports that WWE will air NXT on FS1 for two hours on Wednesday nights in order to go head-to-head with All Elite Wrestling. AEW will start airing on TNT with their weekly television show in October.
According to Hall, he thinks before AEW tries to compete with WWE, they must first compete with NXT.
“I think AEW is basically competing with NXT. NXT is booming and global and now that TV wants wrestling, every network is a copycat network,” said Hall. “People want more wrestling on TV so it won’t be long until NXT has a show, I predict. And you heard it here first.”
“If you believe in your product, then you put it right up against the guy. I’m coming in right next door and we’re gonna compete for the money. It makes everything sharper and better.”
