Poll: Did WWE NXT or AEW Dynamite deliver the better show on Aug. 5?

Who won the latest battle in the Wednesday Night War?

We’d hung this gimmick up back when the pandemic lockdowns started, but brought it back when both AEW and NXT busted out PPV-like themed shows in July. With the Wednesday Night War reheating, we’re keeping it around.

Hopefully everyone enjoys being distracted from the real world by critically comparing and contrasting two fictional television shows. Surely there won’t be any problems... we internet wrestling fans are well known for being able to keep things in perspective.

And, hey. If we can’t, that’s what moderation is for.

Back to the issue at hand. The latest episodes of AEW Dynamite and WWE NXT are a wrap. There’s been time to watch them both (you know, if you’re not into that whole sleep thing) - or at least read up on what happened and check out Twitter GIFs or YouTube clips.

So which show did you enjoy more? Who delivered a more entertaining wrestling product?

Was it AEW with Dark Order getting the better of the BTE/FTR alliance, Matt Cardona’s successful debut, Easy E being back & better than ever, and Mox respecting Darby & gaining motivation to kill MJF?

Or was it NXT, which kicked off by setting up two women’s feuds, reminded us not to mess with Keith Lee, Karrion Kross & Legado del Fantasma, and wrapped up with Pat McAfee becoming the most hated man in Winter Park, Florida?

You can peruse our NXT live blog & review and our Dynamite live blog & review before voting, if you want.
