It is already widely known that WWE's once developmental program now a successful brand of their own, NXT, is moving to a two-hour timeslot on Wednesday nights starting September 18th. This will be the same night of the week that AEW will air their weekly program on TNT.
AEW Executive Vice President Cody Rhodes recently spoke with the Bleacher Report and is "oddly intrigued" with what Vince McMahon has planned for the product that his late father, The American Dream Dusty Rhodes, was heavily involved with since its inception.
"I'm oddly intrigued to see what Vince McMahon does with NXT," Rhodes said. "My dad was instrumental in building the NXT brand. For a long time, It had been a developmental project. For Vince to now bring it to the USA Network as if it's a full brand, I'm just intrigued by it."
"I think the most important night in all of wrestling is now Wednesday nights," Rhodes said. "The best wrestling is going to be happening on Wednesday nights. It's destination TV, and when's the last time wrestling was destination TV? It's now must-watch, and I'm not going to complain about that...Wrestling fans now have a choice, and I hope they choose us."
