Cody on AEW vs. NXT: “We have destroyed them for over a year now in that space”

Mar 9, 2021 - by Steve Gerweck

AEW’s Executive Vice President Cody Rhodes was recently interviewed, and was asked about the rumor that NXT could be moving from Wednesday to Tuesday nights following WrestleMania 37.

“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.”

    I’m sure that Co Dee realizes that people can watch both. Especially people with the network, who may decide to watch aew live and then nxt since it’s available. But, keep bringing in old, injured name stars, that put butts in the seats

    I totally believe this. AEW is only worried about AEW – but I’m sure they still watch WWE to see what they are doing lol. However, they don’t suffer knee-jerk reactions to what happens like WWE does.

    Not talking backstage at AEW, only on every wrestling podcast channel that ever existed.

    Ok TNA2.0 needs to calm now, they beat the C show barely.

  5. J says:

    AEW blowing up….except when it’s supposed to part of the match.

  6. Steve says:

    Even bringing Shaq the couldn’t pull a million viewers. Stardust has to slow his horses.

  7. Cody's Brain says:

    Cody needs to realize they are only going up against NXT if they go against RAW or Smackdown and if they can beat the established shows in there spots ill give them credit. Slow ya role and relax we all love AEW Product and def better than wwe

    Let’s not get cocky. Nitro dominated Raw for 83 weeks and we all know what happened.
