There is now more evidence that the so-called Wednesday Night War between WWE NXT and AEW Dynamite will end with WrestleMania 37 Week.
After rumors that NXT could switch to Tuesday Night on the U.S. Network, it was reported on March 15 that an internal production schedule indicated that the first episode of NXT coming out of WrestleMania 37 Weekend was scheduled for Tuesday, April 13 on the American network.
In an update, PWInsider now reports that WWE’s production schedule for April now lists NXT TV airing Tuesday nights each week after WrestleMania 37 Weekend.
The first episode of NXT Tuesday is slated for April 13, with spinoff from the “Takeover: Stand and Deliver” event, and the show will continue to air Tuesday nights each week thereafter.
NXT’s last episode on Wednesday night appears to be Night 1 of the “Takeover: Stand and Deliver” event on April 7. Takeover Night 2 is slated for this Thursday, via Peacock and the WWE Network.
It is not yet clear if there are plans to air a rerun of NXT on Wednesday night on the U.S. network, but the switch to Tuesdays appears to leave AEW alone on Wednesday night.
NXT’s move to Tuesday night would put the show face to face against Impact Wrestling on AXS. NXT will probably stay in the 8 p.m. time slot, at the same time the Impact is released.
It’s unclear when WWE plans to announce the Tuesday night switchover, but stay tuned as we’ll keep you updated.
