Backstage Update On WWE's Move To FOX And War With AEW

There has been discussions between FOX and WWE to have NXT on FS1, running head-to-head against AEW’s new weekly show that will likely be debuting on Wednesdays, reports the Wrestling Observer Newsletter.

From WWE’s perspective, it is a no-lose situation because if ratings are close between AEW and NXT, it would be a blow to AEW’s brand to be able to beat WWE’s developmental brand which would be airing on a far weaker station.

If AEW beats NXT, it would be excusable due it "only" being NXT on FS1.

Ultimately, if any NXT show pulls even 10% of viewers from AEW, WWE would consider that a success.
