The Wednesday Night Wars between WWE and AEW began in October 2019 as AEW Dynamite and NXT went head-to-head every week in order to see who would come out the better show. AEW Dynamite would win in the ratings war for the majority of the time. The Wars finally came to an end last week after NXT moved to Tuesday nights.

While speaking on his 83 Weeks podcast, Eric Bischoff discussed the end of the Wednesday Night Wars. Bischoff went on to explain how it ultimately benefitted both companies, particularly AEW.

“It’s great that WWE decided to move over to Tuesday nights,” Bischoff said. “They thought that was a better spot for them for whatever reason, but they made the move, and it worked out for them. Obviously, it worked out for AEW. They delivered the second-highest rating in the history of their show. Now they’re up to 1.2 million, which is fantastic by today’s standards. Five years ago, it would’ve been a death sentence. By today’s standards, that’s damn good and good for them. It’s growth; they’re moving the needle. They’re moving their audience; that’s a great thing.”

Bischoff then added that both companies will be facing different kinds of challenges and will have to adapt to them. We will have to see how both companies will improve their product for fans.
