NXT Is Officially Bowing Out Of The Wednesday Night War With AEW And Moving To Tuesday

AEW has been hammering NXT in the Wednesday Night rating war from the beginning, and WWE has now officially announced that the Black and Gold Brand is moving to Tuesday as part of a new USA Network deal.

Well, it had to happen eventually. After being beaten by AEW Dynamite in what fans dubbed the "Wednesday Night War" on a weekly basis, WWE has made NXT's move to Tuesdays official.

The first Tuesday episode of the Black and Gold Brand will air on April 13 following next week’s two night TakeOver: Stand & Deliver event. The move to Tuesdays comes as a part of a multi-year contract extension between NXT and USA Network.

You can check out the important points from the press release below.

WWE and USA Network today announced a multi-year extension for NXT, which will move to Tuesday nights live on USA Network at 8/7c beginning April 13. The new agreement for the live, weekly two-hour show furthers WWE and USA’s nearly three decade-long relationship.

“We are incredibly proud of our three-decade partnership with WWE and in extending USA’s NXT deal, we are further establishing our portfolio as an unrivaled home for quality WWE content,” said Frances Berwick, Chairman, Entertainment Networks, NBCUniversal. “By transitioning NXT to a Tuesday timeslot where WWE has performed well in the past, we are giving our passionate fanbase more of what they love with back-to-back nights of exhilarating, live programming.”

“We are thrilled to continue WWE and NBCUniversal’s longstanding partnership with the extension of NXT on USA Network,” said Paul “Triple H® ” Levesque, WWE Executive Vice President, Global Talent Strategy & Development. “The move to Tuesdays provides a new opportunity for us to grow the NXT brand and enables our partner, USA Network, to continue to build its strong portfolio of sports and entertainment programming.”
