Adam Copeland (fka Edge) has shared his honest thoughts on the stacked head-to-head between AEW Dynamite and WWE NXT on Tuesday night.

With Dynamite taking place on Tuesday this week after a schedule change, the AEW show will be going up against NXT for the first time in a while, following their previous ‘Wednesday Night Wars’.
Both AEW and WWE have made sure that the cards for their respective shows are stacked, with Adam Copeland set to make his AEW in-ring debut on Dynamite against Luchasaurus, and the likes of John Cena, Cody Rhodes and Asuka to appear on NXT.
Speaking on the Masked Man Show, Copeland noted that it’s an exciting time for wrestling fans.

Aiming to do his best to make his segments ‘all killer, no filler’, Copeland said:
“Who cares ‘I’m only this guy, I’m only this guy.’ This is awesome. How can you not enjoy the fact that both shows are trying to load up and trying to put the best show on imaginable? That’s all I really care about.
“I’ll try to make sure that my part of the show is all killer, no filler. That’s my only job. I’m sure both will get watched, when it’s all said and done with DVR and however else it gets computed since everything with ratings is so antiquated. It’s fun.
“I remember flipping back and forth between Nitro and Raw. That’s kind of what this is. I don’t see that as a bad thing at all. I think it’s great. The performers themselves, there is none of this weird tribalism.
“Within any industry, sure, there is competition, but I’m happy for those guys and they’re happy for us. When there are choices and there is another company that can push the other company, that’s when you get the best stuff.”

WWE Hall of Famer Kurt Angle has explained why he feels some jealousy towards Copeland following his AEW move, which you can read more about right here.
