Cody Rhodes is one of the driving forces behind All Elite Wrestling, and the Executive Vice President is making sure the world takes note of the new promotion. WWE’s decision to move NXT to USA Network, directly rivaling AEW’s own show, has made the professional wrestling world go absolutely berserk.

Rhodes himself is excited to see the NXT-AEW war on Wednesday nights, and he feels that Wednesdays are ‘Destination Television’, which hasn’t happened in wrestling for a long time.

“I think the most important night in all of wrestling is now Wednesday nights. The best wrestling is going to be happening on Wednesday nights. It’s destination TV, and when’s the last time wrestling was destination TV? It’s now must-watch, and I’m not going to complain about that. … Wrestling fans now have a choice, and I hope they choose us.”

In an interview with Bleacher Report, Cody talked about NXT moving to Wednesday nights, and said that he was ‘oddly intrigued’ to see what happens with the yellow brand on USA Network.

Cody’s father, Dusty Rhodes, was one of the main reasons behind the development of NXT. WWE dedicated a tournament on the brand in honor of Dusty Rhodes, and his influence is everlasting.

“I’m oddly intrigued to see what Vince McMahon does with NXT. My dad was instrumental in building the NXT brand. For a long time, it had been a developmental project. For Vince to now bring it to the USA Network as if it’s a full brand, I’m just intrigued by it.”

AEW is preparing for the Wednesday Night Wars, and have already filed a trademark for the same. NXT will be beginning their journey on September 18, two weeks before AEW starts airing on TNT.

Cody himself will lead the charge against NXT when he takes on former NXT superstar Shawn Spears at AEW All Out. He will also wrestle the first-ever match on TNT for AEW, against a mystery opponent.
