Wednesday Night RAW instead of Monday Night Raw? All Elite Wrestling Executive Vice President and former TNT Champion Cody Rhodes spoke on a recent edition of the Action Sports Jax podcast where he discussed the unconfirmed reports of WWE NXT moving to Tuesday nights. During the interview, Rhodes stated also how Wednesday Nights have been a flagship day of the week for All Elite Wrestling as their top show – Dynamite falls on that day. This top personality was recently ‘replaced’ on WWE Raw.
Rhodes would then discuss the fabled Wednesday Night Wars and a very fascinating ‘what-if’, should WWE NXT move to another day of the week – that being, what if WWE Raw went head to head with AEW Dynamite of Wednesdays. Rhodes made the following comments.
“We have destroyed them for over a year now in that space. Them leaving, perhaps that opens up a different viewership for us on Wednesdays. We’re not reactionary to their booking and won’t change anything we do with what they decide to do on Wednesdays. There are a lot of smart people who work for WWE and perhaps they are planning something else, maybe it’s Wednesday Night Raw for all I know. I’m not assuming their white flag, moving to Tuesday nights, is a true white flag. I’ll wait and see. In the interim, we’ll continue to come up with new content, great stories, and make new kings and queens on our roster. If you’re ever backstage at AEW no one is talking about our competition.”
