Triple H Says Competition With AEW Was An ‘Imaginary Battle’
Triple H recently chatted with Peter Rosenberg on the Cheap Heat podcast, and spoke on NXT’s move to Tuesdays.
He seemingly dismissed the Wednesday Night Wars between WWE NXT and AEW Dynamite, explaining WWE is competing with everything, including “sleep and time to do other things”.
“The promotional opportunity for us is much better on a Tuesday,” he explained. “And also then not having to have a narrative where it’s just constantly about an imaginary war, or this imaginary battle. And, you know, people can say what they want, but the truth of the matter is you compete against everything. If you are creating a television product or content– that is the world we live in is content not television, not internet. It’s everything. So you’re constantly competing for eyeballs and time against everything under the sun, including sleep and time to do other things, and video games, and Tik Tok and everything else that’s out there.”
The head-to-head rating battle between WWE NXT and AEW Dynamite lasted from October 2, 2019 to April 7, 2021. NXT officially moved to Tuesdays on April 13.
