WWE issued the following statement to ProWrestling.net and other media outlets regarding the premiere of AEW Dynamite.
“Congratulations to AEW on a successful premiere. The real winners of last night’s head-to-head telecasts of NXT on USA Network and AEW on TNT are the fans, who can expect Wednesday nights to be a competitive and wild ride as this is a marathon, not a one-night sprint.”
Powell’s POV: I never thought I’d see this, but it’s a classy and savvy move in that it wisely helps WWE avoid looking like villains to AEW fans.
