NXT and AEW are gearing up for another clash this Sunday as NXT Battleground coincides with AEW Double or Nothing.
During the well-known Wednesday Night Wars, AEW emerged victorious as NXT transitioned to Tuesdays after a 75-week run.
In a media call for NXT Battleground, Shawn Michaels was asked about potential plans for NXT to continue scheduling shows against AEW pay-per-views.
“To the best of my knowledge, no. I always strive to be transparent with you all. While there are individuals with decision-making authority who don’t necessarily inform me, I can say that, for WWE as a whole, this event was part of a significant Memorial Day weekend. Despite the schedule adjustment, it harks back to the time when NXT and WWE pay-per-views would occur on joint weekends. This time around, we flipped it, with Night of Champions on Saturday and NXT on Sunday night, allowing us to create a momentous WWE weekend for our fans. Personally, I would love to have more standalone weekends for us, just like when we didn’t have to contend with the NBA and NHL playoffs over the past few weeks. As much as I enjoy basketball and hockey, I can’t deny that I’m thrilled when the playoffs are over. The less competition we face, the better,” Michaels stated.
