AEW released a television commercial and the timing wasn’t very good at all. During this new commercial they took shots at NXT by saying that AEW smashed WWE’s product. This came out during a time when NXT had just racked up their second weekly win in a row against All Elite Wrestling.
Dave Meltzer commented on the AEW commercial during Wrestling Observer Radio. He stated that this was not an AEW call, but TNT made this move on their own.
“That freaking TV commercial on TNT, what the f*ck?! That was a bad idea — that was not an AEW idea.”
It sounds like TNT took it upon themselves to fire some shots at NXT with their new commercial. It didn’t make All Elite Wrestling come off in the best light, but we’ll have to wait for this week’s viewership numbers to see if it worked.
