Why is NXT moving to Tuesdays?
After weeks of speculation on March 30 WWE made the official announcement.
“The move to Tuesdays provides a new opportunity for us to grow the NXT brand and enables our partner, USA Network, to continue to build its strong portfolio of sports and entertainment programming.” Paul Triple H Levesque told WWE.COM.
This comes after the news that NBC Sports Network will be closing by the end of 2021 with the NHL programming coming to USA Network.
Triple H's vision of NXT has aired on USA Network Wednesday nights since September 2019.
NXT has not faired well in the 'Wednesday Night Wars' since AEW Dynamite debuted a month after NXT in October 2, 2019.
Dynamite has beat NXT in viewership for most weeks, as well as dominated in the key 18-49 demographic.
Both AEW and NXT can benefit from airing on different nights, now wrestling fans do not have to choose between the two shows.
When the shows air on opposite nights, it proves to benefit all parties.
In September 2020, AEW gained more than 1 million viewers, the first time for either shows, when the programs aired on separate nights.
The first episode of NXT after Wrestlemania will be Tuesday April 13th.
