WWE Reportedly Running NXT Network Special Directly Against AEW All Out in September


– In the latest Wrestling Observer Newsletter, Dave Meltzer discussed the expectation that competition between WWE, under Paul Levesque and AEW, led by Tony Khan, will likely continue to escalate with the first shots fired with NXT scheduling a WWE Network major show on September 4 - the same day that AEW airs All Out.

-- This would be a change in original plans when the NXT show was supposed to air August 13 as “Heatwave” in its usual Tuesday timeslot. While it’s possible that NXT will air their show in the afternoon and avoid the head-to-head, the Observer story suggests this is unlikely to happen and WWE will air the NXT special at the same time that All Out is on.
