Triple H recently made an appearance on the radio show of WWE NXT analyst Pat McAfee that airs on DAZN. During the interview, Triple H talked about the competition between NXT and AEW.
The fans are getting closer to the latest war between two companies. NXT will air on Wednesday nights on the USA Network from 8-1oPM starting on September 18th. For the first two weeks, the show will split time between USA Network and WWE Network.
The first AEW on TNT show will take place at the Capital One Arena in Washington, DC on October 2nd. This is when NXT will air for the entire broadcast on the USA Network.
“The war thing gets brought up a lot and competition is great. So if they are coming to Wednesday nights and they want to put on the best show they can then great. That’s where we are. We’ve been on Wednesday nights for five years, it’s been are home. We’ve been in discussions with various networks about moving NXT and growing it. Now is the right time. If Wednesday’s is the place people can saw war or not war but I don’t see that way being competitive nature. I see us putting on the best show possible. I think at the end of the day, the winners are the fans. They will choose what they want to watch. I’m confident in NXT, I’m confident in the talent, there’s not one person I would trade anybody for. I can look at that show and say bring your best, we will and good luck.”
