WWE and AEW have a previous history with opposing shows during the Wednesday Night Wars when NXT went head-to-head with AEW Dynamite.

Out of the 75 head-to head weeks that NXT and AEW faced off in a ratings war the results were as followed

• AEW weeks win = 63 weeks
• NXT weeks win = 10 weeks
• Tie = 2 weeks

Since then NXT has moved on to Tuesday on nights after not topping AEW in ratings only 10 times during the war that lasted from October 2nd, 2019 to April 7th, 2021.

Still WWE is keeping a close eye on their competition and are still finding ways to make obstacles for AEW.

AEW’s newest show “Collision” which premiered on June 17th and features CM Punk is slowly growing in audience and WWE feels that their focus should be in competing with “Collision” moving forward.

WWE strategy moving forward is to place more NXT premium live events on Saturday along with continuing with WWE premium live events to take place on Saturday’s.

This will force wrestling fans to choose which wrestling show to watch which most will prefer a premium live event opposed to a regularly weekly show.

The wrestling wars is still alive and well and wrestling fans having an enormous amount of wrestling program to enjoy is Walt’s a good thing. Stay tuned to SW for the latest updates.
