WWE To Deadspin: AEW Is Trying To Counter-Program NXT


• Legendary WWF Promoter Celebrates His Birthday

Legendary WWF Promoter “Mr.” Vince McMahon Jr. (Vincent Kennedy McMahon) celebrates his 74th birthday.

In 1969, Vincent Kennedy McMahon took the job of an announcer for the World Wide Wrestling Federation, where his father Vincent J. McMahon was the promoter.

Vince Jr. eventually became the promoter of the – now renamed – World Wrestling Federation in 1982, when Vince Sr. gave him the company.

Under the new leader (with a lot of help from his #1 Star Hulk Hogan) the promotion went national and later even international, and changed professional wrestling forever by turning a small regional attraction into a world wide phenomenon.

Mr. McMahon is the father of Shane McMahon & Stephanie McMahon, as well as the father-in-law of WWF Legend “The Game” Triple H.


• WWE To Deadspin: AEW Is Trying To Counter-Program NXT

A Wednesday Night War between WWE’s NXT & AEW is set to begin soon. While the general belief among fans is that WWE moved NXT to the USA Network and made it a two hour show to counter AEW’s TV show on TNT, WWE doesn’t think so.

Triple H recently mentioned in an interview that NXT has always been on Wednesdays, so why is no one questioning AEW for trying to counter-programming NXT.

Deadspin recently posted an article on WWE trying to counter-program AEW’s TV show with NXT and this led to WWE sending them the following statement:

“The premise to your story is wrong. NXT has been on Wednesday nights since 2015 [sic] as I’m sure you know. It isn’t called counter-programming if you continue to air a series on the same day/time as it has been on for nearly five years. Perhaps you’ll ask AEW about counter-programming NXT?”
