Last night on TNT, AEW made professional wrestling history, when they debuted their new weekly wrestling program, Dynamite. The show featured several superstars in competitive matches, with the main event featuring Chris Jericho, Santana and Ortiz vs. The Elite (Young Bucks & Kenny Omega).
But what did the competition, WWE, think about AEW’s debut?
According to a report from Wrestling Inc., WWE had the following to say regarding Dynamite:
“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.”
Check out the show that aired before the show:
WWE’s live version of NXT featured the return of Finn Balor and Tommaso Ciampa to the black and gold brand.
This is a cool move by WWE. We live in an era now where it is OK to acknowledge competition and most of the competitors in AEW have spent either some or a lot of time with Vince McMahon. The fans truly are the winners, as we are getting exciting wrestling action each week on Wednesday nights!
