One of the top stars in AEW’s Tag Team Division and one-half of Best Friends Chuck Taylor was interviewed on a recent episode of the AEW Unrestricted podcast, where he talked about the supposed Wednesday Night Ratings War rivalry between AEW and NXT.
According to Chuck Taylor, fans are talking about this fake, bulls**t rivalry between AEW and NXT that really doesn’t exist. Taylor also said that he knows pretty much everyone on NXT’s roster and they are all his friends. Taylor then said that he wants them to succeed as well.
This is what Chuck Taylor said:
“People talk about this fake, bulls**t rivalry between AEW and NXT. But they [members of the NXT roster] are all my friends. Like, common, I was actually a groomsman in Johnny Gargano’s wedding. I want them to succeed, too. Obviously, not at our expense, I hope they lose and die forever, but those are all my friends. Pretty much everyone on NXT TV I know pretty well.”
AEW referee Aubrey Edwards and AEW commentator Tony Schiavone, hosts of AEW’s Unrestricted podcast, then said that real wrestling fans want both products to succeed and don’t really want the competition.
