Jim Ross Shoots On WWE’s ‘Brilliant Evil Strategy’ Against AEW

WWE NXT and AEW Dynamite both air at the same time on Wednesday Nights. This was not supposed to be the case, but it seems it has not worked in NXT’s favor. Jim Ross certainly has an opinion regarding the Wednesday Night Wars.

While NXT defeated AEW Dynamite in viewership last week with its Halloween Havoc event, they still lost in the ratings. Jim Ross can see all this happening and is aware of the fact that AEW has an advantage over NXT.

During Grilling JR, the WWE Hall Of Fame announcer did a shoot on WWE. He mocked WWE’s “brilliant evil strategy.”

“How’s that working? How’s that brilliant evil strategy? Going head to head is good in a boardroom, it’s good in a rah-rah meeting, but at the end of the day, you bring more people to a television set that are wrestling fans at 8 o’ clock eastern time on Wednesday night because you’ve got two brands now that the audience can sample.”

“They can watch one, they can DVR one, they can switch back and forth, whatever the hell you do. But to think it’s going to cripple it? Look at the bigger picture. It’s been the excuse in wrestling forever. Unscrupulous, unethical situations are always justified by saying ‘it’s just business’. Well, it’s just business that we’re kicking your ass every [Wednesday] night.”
