Cody Rhodes Reacts To NXT Possibly Moving To Tuesdays: AEW Can’t Be Reactionary
The Wednesday Night Wars might be coming to an end with reports that NXT is moving to Tuesday nights, but Cody Rhodes isn’t concerned either way. While he’d love to be alone on the night, he knows that either way an AEW show will be up against NXT and that they just have to focus on being the best show possible.
“If that’s the case if we’re no longer going to be opposed on Wednesday nights, I’m sure we’ll come up with some sort of wonderful statement. What could I say? ‘Congratulations to NXT on a successful move to Tuesday nights. The real winners are the fans that can watch NXT and Dynamite every week as this is a marathon, not a one-night sprint.’ I could say that, but I don’t want to be sassy or a jerk,” admitted Rhodes on today’s media call. “I think them moving, perhaps something else will end up on Wednesdays. Not only that, AEW Dark is on Tuesday, so AEW Dark will potentially be opposed.”
At the end of the day, Rhodes has to focus about his show first and foremost.
“That’s why we can’t get into a matter of being reactionary,” Rhodes explained. “We just have to put out the best show. We really do. If they want to beat us, they have to put out a better show. It’s honest competition. Yeah, there are digs, and they’re fun and light-hearted. Believe me, all the locker rooms tend to love each other. It’s more the management that is pointed at one another and even that, there’s a friendly relationship. Tony [Khan] is a different type of executive. I would love us to be alone on Wednesday nights, but I’m prepared for there to be something else in that spot. So, we’ll see.”
