Everyone is talking about NXT possibly making the jump to the USA Network, and it’s expected that an official announcement will be made tonight on Monday Night Raw.
Ahead of the official announcement Chris Jericho appeared on Busted Open Radio and claimed that NXT will be debuting on USA Network on Wednesday, September 25.
However, it’s also worth noting that Dave Meltzer of F4Wonline.com reported earlier today that the show will be moving to USA Network on Wednesday, September 18.
Jericho also called NXT moving to USA Network “a reactionary move” that’s being made by a guy who wants to start a war, and that AEW doesn’t care if WWE wants to start a war. He also added that he thinks adding another hour to NXT will dilute the product.
Chris Jericho emphasized that it’s not AEW’s intention to start a war and the company is just doing what they’re doing.
