Deadspin recently posted an article in which it looks at the impending ratings war between AEW and NXT on Wednesday night, interestingly it contained some interesting comments from a WWE representative regarding the assumption that WWE is counter-programming.
The WWE Spokesperson had the following to say:
“The premise to your story is wrong. NXT has been on Wednesday nights since 2015 as I’m sure you know. It isn’t called counter-programming if you continue to air a series on the same day/time as it has been on for nearly five years.” The email response closed with a suggestion that “Perhaps you’ll ask AEW about counter-programming NXT?”
