AEW and NXT have been going head to head on Wednesday nights since October, and for the majority of the Wednesday Night Wars All Elite Wrestling has come out on top in terms of viewership.
Triple H commented on NXT getting beat by AEW in the ratings during the recent NXT TakeOver: Portland conference call, and according to Pro Wrestling Sheet he emphasized that it’s about the long game.
“It’s about the long game and what we have to do is get to the people in the younger demos. When you’re promoted in younger demos and you are viewed in those younger demos promotionally, then those are the people that you attract.”
Triple H also noted that the demo breakdown for NXT and Raw is similar, likely because both shows air on the same network.
