Waiting for WWE to announce something OCT 2nd and say ‘it’s a coincidence’

Reeks of desperation and it’s pretty funny, what do you think they’ll do?

Is this a reference to the Evolve show that was booked before the AEW show got booked for the same night?

I'm sure when WWE is actually counter programming against AEW they'll bring out the big guns, not Drew Gulak and Adam Cole.

Shilling for Xia Li, Aliyah, Bianca Belair and Rhea Ripley

Fox and WWE are currently looking at NXT to run head to head against AEW. They also booked an NXT UK show on the same night as an AEW show. Don't remember if it's passed or upcoming.

They're doing a lot of counter programming, but I don't think they're gonna bring out the "big guns" to counter AEW because they know there's a very high possibility they'll lose the ratings battle and that would be super humiliating if they're using guys like Roman Reigns and Brock Lesnar, and they would definitely have to answer some uncomfortable questions to investors that they don't want to answer.

They'll book some "extra special" episode of NXT that of course has to be taped, meaning spoilers will get out anyway, lol.

There has been talk of nxt to fs1 for over a year, long before aew was even a thing https://www.cagesideseats.com/wwe/20...tv-deal-report

Nxt UK show is August 30th, same night as all out but it's like 6pm UK so airing 1pm NYC time so won't be head to head

I doubt they counter aew debut with main roster show. It's Wednesday night and only WWE main roster talent work Wednesday night is during European tours.

Nxt if it does end up on fs1 will be months after SD debut I suspect.

WWE will be busy enough themselves with big raw show on Monday to start new USA deal, SD debut on Fox Friday night which is one of their biggest tv broadcasts ever and HIAC ppv on Sunday.

Countering aew probably last thing they will think of

Who cares?

It's wrestling if you want to watch it then by all means watch it. It doesn't matter what iteration of wrestling you choose to watch or if you choose to watch many watch it for enjoyment and don't fucking worry about counter-programming or ratings or ratings battles or whatever else you worry about more than actually watching and enjoying the shit you are watching.
