Wednesday Night Wars: AEW Advances Full Gear, NXT is Workrate

Welcome to the Wednesday Night Wars. AEW Advances their Full Gear PPV build. NXT delivers hot shot booking and their wicked workrate.

Wednesday Night Wars

First thoughts off the bat AEW feels like a better Nitro without all the old WWE workers. Overall, let everyone else in the IWC compare and contrast. I’m just to happy to see some new competition for the wrestling world.

Plus, CM Punk signs deal to join WWE Backstage on Fox Sports 1. Finn Balor returns to NXT. Oh yeah, we also have to preview and predict Hell in a Cell this weekend.

Wednesday Night Wars Cause Major Change and a Casualty

KOP reports on the change of the wrestling landscape with the Wednesday Night Wars. Plus, Ring Of Honor is left a casualty as a result.

Wednesday Night Wars

#NXT ‘s first 2 weeks on @USA_Network would be different if not for:

ACH (Jordan Myles)

Adam Cole

Bobby Fish

Donovan Dijak (Dijakovic)

Roderick Strong

Keith Lee

Lio Rush

Punishment Martinez (Damien Priest)

@WWENXT is led by @ringofhonor stars from 2015- 2016….and a good women’s roster. It won’t stop @AEWrestling from competing head-to-head. @WWE has a lot of work to do to turn the momentum back around with all of the new TV deals if NXT is the best thing they can brag about.

KOP looks the shuffling of television shows coming up next week. Who will fare best and who will not.

The buildup of WWE Summerslam was sidetracked by the RAW reunion. KOP explains how the locker room and the corporate structure got embarrassed Monday night.

He also explains how WWE gave fans what they deserved. Only thing is WWE punished the fans by not learning the lesson about repeating history.
