WWE NXT Premieres On USA Network On Wednesday, September 18


NXT is expected to remain on its long-time home of Wednesday nights but expand from one to two hours, presumably airing from 8-10 p.m. ET.

U.S. is clearly a step up from FS1 in terms of visibility, but there is risk for WWE in going the higher-profile route.

It is speculated that locations for the first live WWE NXT shows will be announced as well. Of course Vince is going to want to play a bigger role should the show start broadcasting to a wider audience, though this won't city well with NXT devotees, many of whom value the developmental brand's differentiation from the main roster product above all else.

For now, all we can do is wait and see what exactly WWE announces on Monday night and what the company has in store for NXT going forward.

Think back to the 2006 rollout of a WWE version of ECW.

PWInsider is reporting that NXT talent and workers were told this week in Florida to be prepared for a different show and that things would be changing very soon.

WWE moving NXT off its network and to a cable competitor is both a shrewd business decision and a clear move to thwart the upstart AEW. In fact, he thought it will be a negative move by WWE as they are being reactionary.

Head-to-head AEW vs. WWE on TNT and United States of America is also an opportunity in the making for AEW, in that it gives AEW a chance to work toward a victory over the industry giant that it wouldn't have had otherwise, if WWE had left well enough alone, and ceded Wednesdays to TNT. It's done by a guy who wants to start a war when we don't care if you want to start a war. Maybe they don't like WWE.
