I try to catch both, but on different days while on down time during my work shift. Typically I watch ‘All Elite Wrestling’ first on Wednesday then ‘World Wrestling Entertainment NXT’ on Thursday, trying my darnedest to avoid all spoilers on my Twitter feed, so that my enjoyment isn’t spoiled. Nowhere near captivating as the Monday Night Wars between World Wrestling Federation and World Championship Wrestling back in the late nineties, but enough to keep you entertained. In my opinion what the Wednesday Night War lacks is story-lines and wrestlers that have the ability to captivate you on the microphone in the process. Wrestlers brought out their best during the Monday Night Wars, but maybe that was because their jobs were on the line which does not seem to be the case as of yet between NXT and AEW.
Both NXT and AEW captivate me in different ways. And when watching either of the two, I try to avoid any distractions I have going on so that I can give my full undivided attention. AEW brings new energy to the world of professional wrestling and gives off this vibe that it is the place to be, being that the crowd is bigger and the fans are very enthusiastic about the show. As for NXT, the crowd is smaller yet very enthusiastic as like AEW.

If the WWE wanted to be real petty, then they would have put Smackdown on Wednesday nights with AEW. However, the viewership is about the same now – https://bleacherreport.com/articles/2866739-aew-dynamite-and-wwe-nxt-tie-in-wednesday-night-ratings-battle – Plus, they can move Ripley up to Raw or Smackdown already. She’s one of the best new women’s wrestlers that I have seen in a few years.
And Smackdown would definitely smash AEW. If I would have been more familiar with NXT, I probably wouldn’t be watching AEW like i’am. Definitely tracking the ratings; it is always plastered all over my Twitter the day after, plus I keep up with podcasts that mention it too.
I declare a thumb war…
I’ll have to search for you some competition because I’am new to thumb war matches.
heard of arm wrestling competitions before (sounds dumb to me) but please tell me there is no such thing as organized thumb wars
You are the one that mentioned it, so we will have to search for you an opponent. (https://www.thumbwrestling.co.uk/enter-world-thumb-wrestling-championships)
You’ll have to go out to the UK for this one. Maybe you can use that Virily payout to purchase your flight.
I am more of a street fighter thumb war kinda guy
Well, don’t get too dangerous there Alex. You might end up landing a cornfed looking man that lives, breathes, and eats thumb war competition, plus he eats cheese and farts all day.
what’s the thumb version of hadouken?
I seriously have no clue
Is that the version you are looking for to compete in?
okay, if Chun-Li will be there then so will I…
Oh damn. So are you going to challenge her to a street fight?
hell no, I can’t counter the spinning bird kick. I was just gonna buy her a drink later
You might have to settle for buying her a Starbucks because I’am sure she doesn’t drink beer or wine. Isn’t she Japanese?
She’s most definitely Chinese, so tea is a shoe in. Plum wine is a maybe…
Plum wine actually sounds very good.
it is quite good. and girls tend to love it
I imagine so, plus that does sound better than tea. Looks like you might have a winner to get Chun Li
also brushing up on my Mandarin sweet nothings
Oh lord, lol. Stay on that game because that woman is lethal
no doubt. she even has the shadowless kick technique
Enjoy the event Thomas!
