During last night’s AEW taping, Tony Khan appeared off camera to inform the public that there will be an episode of it Dynamite aired on Tuesday, October 18.
Aaron Judge will hopefully hit many home runs during Game 1 of Major League Baseball’s American League Championship Series that airs on TBS on Wednesday, October 19, so Dynamite will be moved to Tuesday that week. Tuesday night is NXT’s grounds, of course, so that means Khan and Dynamite will compete against HBK and NXT.
AEW famously wiped out NXT in the ratings for about 18 months during the Wednesday night viewing war from October 2019 to April 2021. Triple H recently used its special brand of revisionist history to distract from the fact that WWE was very much expected to beat AEW no longer exist when Dynamite debuted in October 2019. It didn’t go that way at all, and it was NXT that eventually went screaming and screaming until Tuesday night.
WWE’s product has been popular since Triple H took over Vince McMahon’s creative work, and NXT’s numbers have improved during that time as well. However, NXT now looks more like a development show than ever when it aired on Wednesdays, which could be a factor for wrestling fans deciding which show to watch on October 18.
Tony Khan is bringing at least one big weapon to this fight as he also told the audience that the winner of rampage‘s Golden Ticket Battle Royal (spoiler here) challenges AEW World Champion Jon Moxley for the gold on October 18 Dynamite. tuesday night Dynamite will take place at the Heritage Bank Center in Cincinnati, Ohio. That’s Moxley’s hometown, so the crowd will be on fire to support their violent hero as he defends his title against the winner of the Battle Royal.
