WWE releases a statement on Wednesday night’s AEW Dynamite premiere

This is getting surreal.

From the ‘never thought you would see it’ department, today (Oct. 3) WWE released an official statement to the pro wrestling media about AEW and NXT going to head to head on Wednesday night.

“Congratulations to AEW on a successful premiere. The real winners of last night’s head-to-head telecasts of NXT on USA Network and AEW on TNT are the fans, who can expect Wednesday nights to be a competitive and wild ride as this is a marathon, not a one-night sprint.”

Come again now?

With ratings for NXT on USA and AEW Dynamite set to be released later Thursday afternoon, this is an interesting PR move from WWE. Is the WWE trying to get out in front of a possible ratings defeat?
