• WWE Expected To Make Big Changes On NXT To Compete With AEW

With NXT losing to AEW Dynamite in terms of ratings two weeks in a row in the Wednesday Night Wars, WWE is expected to make big changes to their developmental brand.

According to the Wrestling Observer, WWE officials are planning to move NXT to bigger 5,000 seat arenas and being on the road every Wednesday.

While WWE officials believe that the in-ring product in NXT is superior to AEW’s in-ring product, they feel that AEW Dynamite taking place in bigger arenas and having better production value results in their show looking more exciting, and thus beating NXT in viewership.
