AEW is coming to TNT on Wednesday nights, but in reality, NXT has aired on Wednesday nights for a very long time on the WWE Network. This is something that was not lost on Triple H.
During today’s teleconference, Triple H was asked about NXT possibly coming to FS1 on Wednesday nights. He said that a lot of things are being discussed as the professional wrestling landscape continues to change.
“When it comes to NXT growing as a brand, there are more options on the table. You know, and look I’ll say just contrary to what I’ve heard because I’ve heard that we’re talking about putting them on FS1 and then people come in with counter-programming talk… we have content all over the place and if people want to talk about counter-programming and bring that up in the conversation then Wednesday has been the home of NXT forever, right? That’s where it’s sat. It’s been on our Network on a Wednesday time slot now forever and when other people announce a Wednesday — you don’t hear talk about counter-programming. You just hear the announcement.”
“For us everything is counter-programming. It’s this and it’s that and you know, we plan things long in advance. We plan on doing our business and that’s what we worry about.”
WWE has a lot of options on the table with their reach and new Fox deal. Triple H went on to say that they can do “just about anything” in regards to placement of NXT or even splitting it into two separate shows.
We’ll have to wait and see what happens next, but Triple H made a pretty clear point to address the counter-programming accusations the way he sees it.
