AEW has been going head-to-head with NXT on Wednesday nights for months now, but Vince McMahon says the new promotion has not caused a change to the content WWE puts out.
During a call with investors on Thursday, McMahon was asked about AEW providing “edgier” content and whether that’s changed WWE content and or business.
“AEW has not changed our content at all,” Vince replied. “It’s all about characters, storylines and resolutions … so it really hasn’t changed our point of view in terms of what we present. We don’t need more edgy, as you call it, content. PG. One of the few programs out there that really is PG.”
“As far as NXT, we’re competing. NXT is competing on Wednesday night with AEW and doing extremely well and we’re confident that NXT will continue on with its success,” he added.
