Triple H provides explanation as to why AEW is not competition

AEW will be making its debut on TNT on October 2nd. Two weeks prior to that, NXT will be makings its debut on the USA Network. So the Wednesday Night Wars will begin. However, Triple H does not see AEW as competition.



Triple H spoke to Talk Sport, where he provided an explanation as to why AEW is not competition. NXT is not competing with anyone and they are using this opportunity to put NXT on a bigger stage. Their content will remain the same as always.

To me, people can say what they want, how they want. I don’t approach it like as a competitive thing or it’s anything else, we’re just going to put on our shows. We’re going to put on our shows when we need to put them on, in the best places we need to put them on, in the right timeslots for them and the best talent I can find in the world – and we already have them. I’m confident in that. When I look across the board at NXT in general and NXT in the UK here, we put on show after show of the highest calibre – not one match or two matches, the entire show. So I have no doubt.

For me it’s not competitive against anyone or anything, I just want to put on the best show for the fans of NXT, the fans here in Cardiff tonight, the fans around the world – that’s all this is. It’s funny because a few years ago we were doing this and doing the same kind of thing, wowing people, and there wasn’t competitors out there. So I guess we were just doing it for competitive reasons then? To compete with ourselves?

We will get to know from October how the two companies fare in the Wednesday Night Wars. The landscape of professional wrestling could change altogether.
