WWE Reacts To AEW Dynamite’s Successful Debut, Congratulates The Competition
For the first time ever, All Elite Wrestling and NXT went head-to-head on a Wednesday night. Both companies but on entertaining shows and now WWE has responded to their competitor in a public way. Rather than a declaration of war, the publicly traded company congratulated the competition.
WWE sent out the following message to media outlets:
Congratulations to AEW on a successful premiere. The real winners of last night’s head-to-head telecasts of NXT on USA Network and AEW on TNT are the fans, who can expect Wednesday nights to be a competitive and wild ride as this is a marathon, not a one-night sprint.
It’s an interesting response, especially after AEW Dynamite posted some strong ratings in some major markets across the United States. It also has a lot of truth to it as this is certainly “a marathon, not a one-night sprint.”
Do you think this is a sincere move by WWE or an attempt to save face? Let us know in the comments below.
