Nick Jackson of The Young Bucks took to Twitter in what is believed to be a response to news NXT might oppose AEW on Wednesday nights.
Whether it’s a move to FS1 or USA Network, there is a ton of speculation WWE will be sending their NXT brand to a network that will allow the brand to run opposite of AEW’s new TNT show on Wednesday night. Running likely a two-hour live show between 8 pm and 10 pm Eastern, WWE is putting up one of their most popular brands against the closest competition they’ve had in nearly two decades.
While an announcement is expected as early as this Monday from WWE, one of the Executive Vice Presidents of AEW isn’t waiting for the news to be official. Nick Jackson looks like he’s responding to the news already in a tweet that simply reads, “Bring it on.”

AEW had to know if they were to gain traction, WWE wasn’t going to offer some kind of response. And, with the new wrestling company grabbing the attention of many fans and nabbing big names like Jon Moxley and Chris Jericho, Vince McMahon seems to be ready to put a stop to the momentum sooner than later.
What This Means
Fans have talked a lot about what WWE might be feeling with AEW growing so quickly. Perhaps with news WWE will be airing its NXT brand opposed to AEW, the Jackson’s and Cody Rhodes, along with President Tony Khan now know what it feels like to be WWE. They are being targeted and an NXT move to USA Network will certainly make a dent in their potential ratings. Nick Jackson is putting on a strong front, as he should, but this won’t all be tough talk. The Wednesday Night War looks like it has official begun.
