Re: Will WWE counterprogram AEW?
If I had to guess, I think yes. WWE will counter program AEW.
The only thing that could counter it are RAW, SDL and NXT. Raw isn't moving to Tuesdays, SD is leaving Tuesdays to Fridays which leaves NXT. NXT is probably the best choice anyways, it's beloved and is probably targeting the same audience as AEW moreso than even RAW/SDL are.
But if WWE think they can add a new program to the already over saturated amount of content they already have or put something like 205 Live or Main Event on TV on Tuesdays...well then good luck. No one will tune into that shit. No network or channel will even want that crap.
WWE pushing NXT to cable TV though would be bitter sweet. Sure, it would counter AEW and split the audience and hurt the new company but it could also hurt the WWE Network where NXT is the primary reason anyone subscribes. If the WWE Network loses NXT, it'll lose numerous amounts of subscribers.
I guess we'll see.
Reigns / Rollins / Cole / AJ / Bray / Owens
Omega / Elite / Okada / Switchblade
Undertaker / Y2J / Batista / John Cena
Brock Lesnar / Steve Austin / The Rock / Goldberg
