In this discussion, he shared his thoughts on NXT going head-to-head with AEW.
All Elite Wrestling’s television show debuts on TNT on October 2nd while NXT will air on USA Network a few weeks prior on September 18th. WWE has expanded NXT to a two-hour program.
According to Spears, AEW has the mindset of going out there and doing their thing instead of trying to outshine their competitor.
“I think no matter who is on, on whatever timeslot, everyone is going to be motivated regardless. We are gonna do our thing on Wednesday nights, we’re gonna tear it up and if you watch, fantastic, we think you are in for one hell of a treat and if you don’t watch, you are missing one hell of a show, it is really that simple. But that is the beautiful thing about providing an alternative, it benefits the audience. Not just the audience of AEW, or WWE, or Impact, or Ring of Honor, it benefits the everyday casual wrestling fan. You now have another option. I can’t speak for everybody, but we are not looking at it as a head-to-head competition, where we need to knock these guys out of the water, we are going to go out there and do our thing.”
