The Wednesday Night Wars are quickly approaching as NXT went live on USA Network this week, and AEW is set to go live on TNT on October 2.

Ahead of AEW’s big premiere on TNT, Kenny Omega was asked about AEW vs. NXT in an interview, and he made some interesting comments.

“You wanna call that a war, you wanna call that competition? Go ahead. Maybe it’s fun for you to do. That’s cool,” Omega said. “But we’re different planets. And you’re going to see that right away, when you see 10000+ arenas sold out. You’re going to see smiles on fans’ faces. You’re going to see real stars. Not developmental talent but real stars appearing on your television sets, every week.”

NXT star Dominic Dijakovic decided to weigh in on Kenny Omega’s comments when he posted the following on Twitter:

“Hey @KennyOmegamanX remember when my match with @RealKeithLee embarrassed yours on your PWG homecoming weekend of BOLA 2017? Tune in this Wednesday to NXT TV on USA at 8pm so two developmental guys can show a real star how it’s done, again.”

Omega then responded with a GIF of 50 Cent laughing and driving away.
