Will The Wednesday War be any different from The Monday Night War??

Nearly 20 years after WCW died, WWE's been the one true global empire of Wrestling. In the years since Impact Wrestling and Ring of Honor had moderate success, but they wasn't anywhere near WWE's massive empire.

AEW's success is unheard of and their 1st PPV's was awesome and now that their on TNT, The Wednesday Night War had begun.

It's NXT vs AEW every wednesday night for ratings, but it's not really a war because AEW's not focus on beating NXT, they're more focus on their own and making AEW the biggest company in the world.

The wrestling boom is back because fans having seen nothing like this since The Monday Night Wars back in the 90's and AEW's the first massive company to be on TNT since 2001.

It probably won't be the same as The Monday Night Wars, but I know that more fans are watching AEW more that NXT.

I'm just waiting to see what AEW's gonna do next.

    AEW is not making a big enough noise yet. WCW had every famous superstar in the world and was unpredictable. AEW is almost there.

    Pro wrestling has lost its popularity though because of NNA and the boring WWE.

  • Yes because both companies have learned from what happened 24 Years ago. They won't make the same mistakes, they will make new ones.

    There aren't any stakes. If AEW's not interested in 'winning', and the only competition they pose is against WWE's third brand, then there aren't any stakes. There's no threat of AEW overtaking the WWE, and WWE has bigger fishes to fry with continuing to make their investors at Fox and USA happy. If anything, WWE's at war with it's own content programming and AEW is at odds with the idea of keeping their program relevant. While AEW's dominated NXT for 3 weeks running now, both shows ratings are slipping by the week. If there's a war, it's a campaign to keep their respective media platforms happy.

    I believe AEW is running a normal TV season of about 20-25 episodes, so for half the year at least NXT will go unopposed.
