NXT’s debut last night on the USA Network was met with much praise so far, but Kenny Omega would probably say that we haven’t seen anything yet.
AEW is bringing their television show to Wednesday nights on TNT and it will be Dynamite. Omega considers NXT’s roster his friends, but he doesn’t see them as competition.
Dropkick Diskussions recently spoke to Kenny Omega and he unloaded about the Wednesday Night Wars. To him there is no war, because AEW will have real stars while NXT is only offering fans developmental talent.
“You can call it a war if you want. To me, we’re in a completely different kind of business. What they’re doing is different from what we’re doing and it’s weird because it’s hard to say that you’re going to war with people that I call my friends and yet we are going to war.”
Yet, when I sit back and look at the grand picture, it’s like I’m going to war with these dudes that if we were on the same show together you know, the same show with the same promotion — let’s pretend there are no wars. Let’s just pretend there are no promotions, let’s just pretend there’s one big promotion if they were on the same show as me they’d be in the dark match, they’d be in the opening match and I’m in the main event match.”
“You gonna call that a war? You wanna call that competition? Go ahead, I mean maybe that’s fun for you to do, that’s cool, but we’re on different planets and you’re gonna see that right away when you see 10,000 plus arenas sold out. You’re gonna see smiles on fans’ faces and you’re gonna see real stars. Not developmental talent, but real stars there on your television sets every week.”
Those are some very straight to the point words from The Cleaner. We’ll have to wait and see how everything pans out, but we’ll all be watching the ratings very closely in the weeks to come as this new pro wrestling war continues.
