Triple H On Moving NXT to Tuesday Night

Triple H recently spoke about moving NXT to Tuesday Nights and officially ending the Wednesday Night Wars. Triple H believes that this move will benefit both companies as fans can actually watch both shows and will not need to choose between one of them.

Besides, Dynamite was actually winning the Wednesday night wars.

Triple H Speaks About NXT Moving to Tuesday Nights to End Wednesday Night Wars

“The promotional opportunity for us is much better on a Tuesday and also then not having to have a narrative where it’s just constantly about an imaginary war or this imaginary battle,” Triple H said.

“People can say what they want, but the truth of the matter is you compete against everything. If you are creating a television product or content and that is the world we live in is content, not television, not the internet.

It’s everything. You’re constantly competing for eyeballs and time against everything under the sun, including sleep and time to do other things, and video games, and Tik Tok and everything else that’s out there.

“So having your own space where you don’t have to then have an added imaginary battle stacked up against it, it’s kind of nice. The bigger fact is having a lead-in from a Tuesday into a Wednesday. When we first started, NXT was on Wednesday’s for viewers of The Network.

The transition to the USA and wanting to keep that consistency for those that were watching on The Network so they would know where to find it and not have confusion of SmackDown leaving Tuesday’s and people joining in and finding something else.

Time has gone by now, and this is a great opportunity for us to have that lead in for Monday Night RAW, get that promotional window for Monday Night RAW, get to Tuesday’s and continue to deliver the product." Triple H also said, "Again, I’m thrilled with it, and I think the opportunity is the same as it was before, which is for talent to get out there live and show everything that they can do, and I’m a big believer that talent will shine through, and they’ll get that opportunity and you’ll make bigger and bigger stars as time goes by.

It’s about making stars and them having that opportunity, not just the number every single week”. This week, both shows saw a huge boost in ratings after this move, which shows just how important this move can be for both companies.
