Matt Riddle is going to be moving to the USA Network with WWE NXT. The WWE wants to compete with All Elite Wrestling’s TV Show that will start airing in October on TNT. This will start a new era called the Wednesday Night Wars.
All Elite Wrestling is the only promotion in the world that can give the WWE some trouble. They are backed by a billionaire which means that they can hire any wrestler that they want. Matt Riddle knows that the WWE will expect superstars like him to perform extremely well for the promotion.
That is the only way they can drive fans away from the WWE. He spoke about WWE vs. AEW on Sportskeeda Wrestling's Dropkick DiSKussions. "What's the name of that company," Riddle asked in jest. "No, no, I'm kidding, I'm kidding, I'm kidding.
Honestly, I wish them all the best. I'm super stoked. It's the Wednesday Night Wars! "I hope they push the envelope. I hope they push it hard and I hope they get a lot of fans, and I hope they're very successful - because the more successful they are, the more successful we'll be and the more…” Some people believe that competition is good for the industry as the WWE will now have to start pushing really hard to get its fans back. Many have already left the WWE for the AEW and that is not a good thing for them.
