Kenny Omega Talks Wednesday Night Wars Ending

Last updated

AEW Champion Kenny Omega recently appeared on the PWI Podcast. The ‘Cleaner’ discussed a number of topics during the interview, including the ‘Wednesday Night Wars’ that ended earlier this year when NXT moved to Tuesday nights.

‘This is my true honest feeling. I never felt one way or another towards the war, if you can call it that” Kenny Omega began. “I wouldn’t call it that, I knew we would tell different stories in our company.”

“So I knew we would show different types of matches in our company, I can only control what I have a hand in” Omega added. “And that would be my stuff and variety of other things that may or may not be on the show.”

“I’m sure the Bucks feel the same way” Omega revealed. ‘For NXT to have moved to Tuesday, I mean sure, great. I just feel like now, I never felt like it was a battle for Wednesday.”

“I feel like it’s a battle across the board. There’s so much wrestling every day during the week. I try to think back to when I was a fan, and I thought I was a mega fan, when I was watching wrestling but not doing it” Omega continued.

“And even still, I think at the height of my fandom, I couldn’t watch the amount of wrestling that’s available to us today. Couldn’t do it five, seven days a week. I just couldn’t do it. So for me, the real war is ’˜how do you get the eyeballs for your day of the week?’” Omega concluded.

“We’re not battling for Wednesday, I feel like I’m battling for the week. You know what I mean?’
