WWE and AEW’s Wednesday Night War began in October 2019 as AEW Dynamite and NXT went head-to-head every week in order to see who would come out the better show. AEW Dynamite would win in the ratings war for the majority of the time. The Wars finally came to an end in April last year after NXT moved to Tuesday nights.

For 76 weeks the war between the two brands raged on and only on one occasion did AEW lose in the key 18-49 demographic rating against NXT. This was seen as a shock to many but AEW bounced back.

There were obvious similarities between the two products, especially due to their emphasis on indie talent. While speaking on the “Gentleman Villain Podcast, ”William Regal talked about the Wednesday Night Wars. Regal stated that it is foolish to not compare with the original black and gold version of NXT.

“You’d be foolish to say that it’s not very similar,” Regal said. “Yes, very much so… if I say anything now, there’s going to be people that go, ‘Well, that was a PWG crowd, or that was the Ring of Honor’s crowd.’ No, here’s another one of my views: the people who think, ‘Oh, all they did was take people from Ring of Honor or PWG,’ well, there was a platform for them and a bigger platform to make a better living. ”

Triple H was blamed for NXT losing the Wednesday Night Wars. So far, NXT 2.0 has been receiving mixed responses from fans. As for Regal, he will forever be grateful for his many years in WWE and that’s what matters in the end.
