NXT and TNA Wars?

This may sound incredibly awful, or may come off as incredibly awesome. I realize the WWE wants nothing to do with TNA, but hear me out on this one. Could they pull of a TNA vs NXT War like The Monday Night Wars? I don't watch much TNA ever, but I am familiar. I am also certain they have a live show each week. Right now we know NXT is taped, and that makes perfect sense. Granted NXT is barely known about in the WWE Universe, but a tv deal within the states will happen hopefully. If that is the case should there be a Thursday Night War? Obviously Monday won't work because TNA airs on Thursdays.

Perhaps this feud begins over "territory"? Both are facilities are in Orlando Florida. TNA Impact Zone in Universal Studios, and NXT at Full Sail University in Orlando Fla. Right I am certain that the NXT roster is well over 50 stars. Granted most of them no names, but same can be said for TNA. There are plenty on their roster I can hardly care for. Remember we didn't have talent going back, and forth from each company during the Monday Night Wars so it wouldn't be any different. However, there was direct competition going with both Nitro, and Raw without having to carry out matches.

TNA claims NXT has no reason to think it's on the same level as TNA, and that showing up in Orlando is disrespectful. NXT claims it has the best stars in the world, and where real champions are made. NXT claims TNA is a retirement home dressed as a Miami Night Club. Where TNA would say that NXT is a farm league, and that their shows are pre recorded each week. Basically the same attack WCW took with Raw. Obviously TNA has more credibility than NXT in terms of stars, but NXT could easily make a name for itself competing with them. In essence the WWE's Farm League goes up against a whole other promotion. That looks really good for the WWE, and gives TNA actual competition, or something close to.

This could still be the same, but once talent is released is where it gets interesting. Should TNA release a talent, and the WWE sign them they immediately would to NXT regardless. Should the WWE let someone go, it's a strong possibility they end up in TNA. Take Chavo for example, or even Christian. Thus, this keeps the feud going with both shows. Just something to ponder I guess, should NXT get a television spot in the United States on a weekly basis. It would be nice to see TNA go head to head with NXT each week. I like to watch NXT more than WWE at this point.

Re: NXT and TNA Wars?

Basically go head to head weekly like Raw did with Nitro. It was called "The Monday Night Wars". Would love to see NXT land a television deal, and go head to head with TNA. I like NXT right now, and feel like it could better over time. It would be interesting to see if something like this could actually make a buzz.

TNA have a better roster than both Raw and Smackdown and have done for quite some time. The bolded statement just confuses me. You will obviously see them as no names because you don't watch it.

I think he means no names to the general people and I doubt they've got a roster over 50 in the first place

Right, NXT would probably win in a ratings war here thanks to the little logo in the corner combined with TNA's crappy advertising. Maybe some competition could wake them up a bit though.

Yeah, without the sufficient advertising only something out of this world such as a heel John Cena leading the Aces and Eights could create a massive buzz. They've just got to keep doing what they're doing now; keep putting out better shows than the competition, steadily expand and get the brand seen and heard as much as possible.
