NXT made its debut on the USA Network on September 18th and it was a huge success. Many people praised the show, but Kenny Omega thinks differently.
AEW will be making its debut on TNT on October 2nd and the Wednesday Night Wars will finally begin between WWE and AEW. To Omega, the NXT roster is his friends but are definitely not competition.
Dropkick Diskussions recently spoke to Kenny Omega, where he talked about the Wednesday Night Wars. Kenny Omega thinks AEW is in a completely different business from WWE and he considers it hard to say that he is “going to war” with people that he calls his friends.
He boasted that if he thinks of the grand picture, he is “going to war” with wrestlers who, if they were on the same show, would be in the dark match while he would be in the main event. He reiterated that AEW and WWE are on “different planets” and said that AEW would prove it once they start with sold-out arenas and the fan reaction to the stars on television every week.
We do wonder whether Kenny Omega said all this in character or not. We will get to know next month how the Wednesday Night Wars turn out to be.
