Christopher Daniels spoke about the Wednesday Night War between AEW Dynamite and WWE NXT during an interview with Wrestling Inc.
Here is what he had to say:
“Honestly, you hit the nail on the head. We didn’t come looking for any sort of fight. We picked a night to be on television. WWE decided to have their own show on that same night. They sort of made the the playing field the way it is, but our main goal isn’t counterprogramming. Our main goal is to put the best product that we can put out there, and so that’s always been our main focus. And I feel like our fan base has sort of followed that. The ratings sort of speak for themselves. We’ve been very fortunate to have a bigger audience than the WWE for a majority of the time. As long as we concentrate on putting out great wrestling, I feel like that’s going to benefit us. The minute we start thinking, ‘Oh, we need to do this to beat them.’ That’s not our goal. Our goal is to just prosper on our own and never mind what’s on the television on other channels, whether it’s WWE, or reality television or whatever’s on. I don’t care. As long as we’re doing well, that’s the important thing for us and for our company.”
