It is being reported that NXT will be moving to Tuesdays
nights permanently after WrestleMania 37 in April,
effectively ending the Wednesday night war with All Elite
The Mat Men Podcast originally broke the story citing
reliable sources who said that an announcement should be
made soon. Dave Meltzer of the Wrestling Observer later
confirmed the report, saying its very close to being a done
deal with April 13 being the first date of the move.
NXT made its debut on USA Network in September 2019 two
weeks before AEW made its television debut with Dynamite.
Since then, NXT has lost almost all the head-to-head shows
with Dynamite but gained many more viewers when aired on a
Tuesday night when it was pre-empted by the NHL on USA
Network. Ever since NXT started its weekly shows in 2014 on
WWE Network, it always aired on a Wednesday night.
With NBC Sports shutting down and all programming moving to
other NBCUniversal properties, NXT would have probably still
had to make way for sports such as NHL which has more
viewers and has better advertising rates.
