The competition between WWE and AEW is already heating up despite All Elite Wrestling not having their weekly show on TNT debut yet as during this week’s episode of SmackDown LIVE and NXT’s premiere on the USA Network, AEW made their presence felt by airing commercials in what was supposed to be just WWE’s time.
These commercials reportedly aired in various markets and DirecTV seems to be its main provider. A number of fans recently took to Twitter and shared some video footage of these commercials being aired, as seen below:
