WWE NXT will premiere on the USA Network on Wednesday, September 18, 2019, according to Dave Meltzer.
The plan is for the series to air in the 8-10 PM Eastern timeslot Wednesday nights, which will go head-to-head with All Elite Wrestling on TNT. AEW premieres on TNT on October 2, 2019 with a live show from the Capital One Arena in Washington, D.C. Meltzer reports WWE wanted to get a jump on AEW by arriving to the primetime cable television slot first.
WWE is expected to make an official announcement live on tonight’s episode of Monday Night RAW. Locations for the first episodes of NXT could be confirmed as well.
