WWE Issues Congratulations to AEW on Their Debut Show, Says Fans Are Real Winners

There was a statement by World Wrestling Entertainment this afternoon about the All Elite Wrestling debut of their show Dynamite last night.

“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.”

The statement was issued to websites on WWE’s mailing list.

You can check out the NXT review by Jim Kress right here.

AEW beat NXT in the ratings “war” for the first night. Those details came out two hours after this post and you can check them out here.

TJR Thoughts: Did they do the statement for sportsmanship or because they know the AEW show might have got more viewers than NXT? That might be the reason.

Anyway, it’s a classy gesture on WWE’s part.
