We noted before how it was reported that WWE will be putting up NXT against AEW’s upcoming TV show on TNT and now the AEW Officials have started reacting to the news.
Chris Jericho recently had an interview with Busted Open Radio where he talked about this possible development and claimed that it will dilute WWE’s product:
“I think WWE is great but there’s too much WWE as it is, by adding another two hours, that really dilutes the product, it dilutes their mindset, it dilutes the focus. It’s a reactionary move that’s done by a guy who wants to start a war. We don’t care if you want to start a war, that was never our intention. There’s no war for us, we’re just doing what we’re doing. People there don’t like that and they’re reacting to it, and it just dilutes their own product.”
The Young Bucks also reacted to the news and while replying to a tweet about the same, the tag team said that they are not scared of the competition:
We aren’t scared. https://t.co/7mMS8zC1KQ

While WWE is expected to make the announcement of NXT moving to TV soon, they haven’t made the news official yet and it would be interesting to know the backstage reaction of the same.
