The WWE is currently fighting AEW Dynamite. Their brand NXT is facing AEW Dynamite head-on. People are calling it the Wednesday Night Wars. Back in the late 1990s, WCW Nitro and WWE RAW fought each other. That era was called the Monday Night Wars.
Eric Bischoff led the WCW during the Monday Night Wars. Bischoff spoke about whether the Monday Night Wars could be compared to the Wednesday Night Wars. "I don't think that's a fair comparison. I don't mean to sound disrespectful to NXT or AEW but it's kinda hard to compare the Monday Night Wars to the Wednesday Night Wars," Bischoff said.
"I don't really feel that's a fair comparison to anyone, them or the Monday Night Wars." Bischoff also praised AEW for the way they present their show Dynamite. He spoke about what he thinks they are doing well to make their product appealing to the casual fan.
"An example of what AEW is doing right is the way they lit the crowd. The first episode or two I saw of AEW, they did a fantastic job of lighting the audience. The audience became a character in the show itself and created a ton of energy that translates to the home viewer," Bischoff said before noting that the people who work on AEW's lighting also worked for WCW”. Eric Bischoff was the Executive Director of Smackdown about a month ago. He was released by the company.
