Sportskeeda recently interviewed All Elite Wrestling Executive Vice President Kenny Omega on a number of topics including the impeding Wednesday Night War between AEW and NXT.
According to Kenny Omega, stars from the NXT roster would only be working the dark matches to his main events. Omega also noted that there really is no comparison between AEW and NXT as AEW has real stars, while NXT just has developmental talents.
This is what Kenny Omega said:
“You can call it a war if you want, it’s just like… to me it’s like we’re in a completely different kind of business.” “What they’re doing is different than what we’re doing and it’s hard to say you’re going to war with people that I call my friends, and yet we are going to war, and yet when I sit back and look at the grand picture, it’s like I’m going to war with dudes that if we were on the same show together, the same show and the same promotion… let’s pretend there were no wars, let’s pretend there were no promotions, let’s pretend there’s just one promotion. If these guys were on the same show as me, they’d be in the dark match. They’d be in the opening match for my main event match.
“You’re going to call that a war? You’re going to call that competition? Go ahead. Maybe it’s fun for you to do, that’s cool, but we’re different planets and you’re going to see that right away when you see 10,000+ arenas sold out, you’re gonna see smiles on fans’ faces, and you’re gonna see real stars, not developmental talent, but real stars appearing on your television sets every week.”
