I got to watch them both earlier this week, and yeahs NXT was a Takeover level show. AEW was a damn fine premiere show. I thought they represented themselves well. Itís not perfect, but I was definitely entertaining.

I was betting they were probably on AEW and then I saw the thread up top and they were. Now I totally regret probably not watching that part because I assume Iíd have missed them because Iíd be on NXT instead, but now Iíll never know.

So...shit, for me I guess this week might make top twenty wresting weeks of all time since I donít have to work Saturday, so I can actually watch Smackdown. Wednesdayís just seem like an odd day for four hours of wrestling with a day of retrospect to go off of.

Too bad. Jay and Silent Bob were there.

AEW also has a significant financial advantage. They are backed by a legit billionaire who is willing to put up significant cash. Even with the backing of Sinclair and Dixie's dad, did TNA have the capital AEW has.

From a historical perspective, we have to wait for it to be historical to find out, but what is certain is that (like it or not old pals!) this is the most interesting week in wrestling for a generation.

AEW is different because of social media. One of the reasons TNA never even rippled the waters was because nobody knew. For most of the early 2000's they were a FAR better show, but had minimal exposure and never had a big arena show.

As far as changing wrestling...

Nitro debuts. An established brand deciding to go head to head with RAW and Lugerís surprise debut.

Vince buys Nitro. Vince won, killing a brand that had been in business for over a decade (longer if you think of the NWA as the Crockett territory).

Benoit. Wellness policy. The tribute show followed up by SmackDown starting with Vince. Most national coverage of WWE since rock and wrestling era.

As far as this week goes...We still donít know if AEW is anything more than TNA with a rich money mark. We donít know how well SmackDown will do on Fox. And neither of those will be a success or failure based on one week.

I thought your post was so provocative and inspiring that it deserved its own thread.

Just kidding. I never read anything you post.

In terms of historical impact still felt to this day and will be for years, the Benoit week has this one beat hands down.

History will determine that. It could wind up being no more significant than the time TNA went head-to-head with RAW on Mondays.

This week you see the national TV debut of a brand new major wrestling promotion in AEW. You will also see their competition, NXT, go to two full hours for the first time on TV. You also see the debut of Smackdown on major network TV and the transition of that program from the B show to the A show. Has there been a bigger, more significant week ever in the history of wrestling?

Also, is it fair to say that this week ushers in a new era of pro wrestling?

Or is the hype overstated?
