WWE is well aware of what AEW is doing, but that doesn’t mean the dates Tony Khan’s company picks for their events are off limits. Now fans will have to make a decision for AEW All Out.
A leaked internal sheet explained some interesting information. NXT is holding an event exclusively on Peacock and internationally on the WWE Network, on Sunday, September 4th, the same day as AEW: All Out.
According to Brandon Thurston of Wrestlenomics, they can’t confirm the name or start time of the NXT premium live event. This is a very interesting scheduling conflict, for sure.
“We can’t confirm the name or start time of the NXT premium live event. All Out is advertised to begin at 8 pm Eastern, 7 pm Central, so it’s possible but we’re not yet certain the NXT PLE will run head-to-head in primetime against the AEW PPV. The NXT PLE is set to take place in Orlando, likely at the Performance Center, although we can’t confirm the venue. “
“NXT’s next special TV episode will be Tuesday, August 16, branded “Heatwave”. The “Heatwave” name was formerly used for pay-per-views by ECW. The announcement is expected to be made official tonight on NXT television. “
“The September 4 premium live event will be NXT’s fourth event exclusively to Peacock and the WWE Network since the last “Takeover”-branded event on August 22, 2021.”
“NXT TV tapings for episodes airing on September 20 and 27 will be taped on September 14. Those episodes were originally scheduled to be taped on September 7.”
We will have to see how this pans out. WWE initially wanted NXT to be competition for AEW, but scheduling a special event on the same day as All Out is a very bold decision.
