WWE NXT rushed to start airing on the USA Network two weeks prior to AEW Dynamite making its debut on TNT. The Wednesday Night Wars are still going strong, with each company trying to put out the best product possible.
Triple H spoke to Sports Illustrated, where he was asked about NXT competing against AEW Dynamite. AEW Dynamite has defeated WWE NXT for a consecutive 14 weeks in 2020. The Game said that he does not care about weekly ratings. He is more focused on the long game.
“I’m a believer in the long-term game. You create the right product, and over time, people will find it. I think back to Monday nights years ago, and it looks different now, but there were periods of time when WWE was putting on much better shows and the content was much better, but we were still getting beat. We were not winning ‘the war,’ but we stayed true to who we were. If it’s a flash and it’s exciting at first but you can’t maintain it, then it loses that pizzazz. It’s long-term duration, for me. That’s how you win. I’ve been saying it since the beginning—I’m not concerned about those numbers week-to-week. It’s about trying to put out the best show you can every week.”
Triple H certainly has not forgotten the Monday Night Wars. WWE lost to WCW for 83 weeks in a row before RAW finally came out on top.
