Re: What does it mean for AEW now that NXT are going 2 hours live on FS1?

Not a great deal I would say, there may be some crossover in terms of fans of both shows but all the momentum is with AEW so as long as their product is consistently entertaining that's a lot more than you can say for NXT recently. Plus I'd be surprised if they weren't backing themselves against what is essentially a third brand.

Nothing. TNT is a bigger network with a much larger pull. This is going to hurt NXT far more than AEW
zrc and V-Trigger like this.

Let's see...

Raw - 3 Hours
SD - 2 Hours
NXT - 2 hours
AEW - 2 hours
ROH - 1 hour
Impact - 2 hours
MLW - 1 Hours

Random PPV on weekend 3 Hours

That's 16 hours in a week! This is insane. Less is more at this point!
TripleG and TKO Wrestling like this.

And WWE PPVs run longer than 3 hours. And then you have weekly shows like NXT: UK, 205 Live, and probably a couple more WWE programs that I'm forgetting.

No human being can possibly be expected to keep up with all of this.

I generally skip Raw and SD anyway, and if this two hour deal ruins NXT, I'll probably stop watching that too.

I haven't watched ROH in months and I hear the show has gotten really bad. Impact I check out sporadically at best.

So right now, at least AEW is introducing itself at a time when I'm kind of down on a lot of things.

More choice for me to see what suits my tastes. No way i will watch all that wrestling in a week but If AEW and NXT are forced to compte over the same audience then creatively means a better show for both which makes it better for the fan.

Competition is good. Choice is good. It really is as simple as that.

It gives people more options, we live in a time where people watch multiple shows, in the attitude era I had a neighbour that was obsessed with WCW and because I was a WWF fan he hated me, you don't have people that ONLY watch one show these days.

Puts more pressure on AEW. If putting NXT head to head with AEW is enough to keep their show under a 1 million viewers then it's a win for WWE. WWE doesnt care if NXT draws fewer viewers. They just want to divide the audience. Its be pretty embarrassing if NXT beat AEW in the ratings. Dont think itll happen though.
