Tonight NXT is set to go live on USA Network, and in a few weeks All Elite Wrestling’s weekly TV series will be premiering on TNT.
It seems that the Wednesday Night Wars are unavoidable at this point, and Shawn Michaels recently talked about the mindset that the NXT stars are in on the State Of Combat Podcast.
While talking about AEW, the WWE Hall of Famer noted that the NXT roster won’t just be competing with AEW, they’ll be competing with everybody.
“Not to minimize the other guys [in AEW] at all, but certainly from a talent standpoint, they are in competition with everybody. Again, all of them across the board, every one of them has friends much like we did back in the day. But we were all still competitive even when we were sharing the same locker room and that hasn’t changed in the wrestling business. Everybody that has gotten in the ring is competitive with every other person that gets in that ring, and NXT is no different.”
“They are going to compete with every wrestling genre that is out there as far as they are concerned. It shouldn’t be any other way. I think everybody should be doing that, and I think the biggest winners are all of us that get to watch. Make no mistake about it – the men and women of NXT look at the entire world as their competition, and want to go out there and show everybody why they think they are the best, and why you should be watching them. And now, on Wednesday nights on USA, you are going to get that opportunity, and they’re going to let it all hang out. It’s going to be a blast, not only for them but for every wrestling fan walking God’s green earth.”
