WWE and AEW shows will seemingly be going head-to-head in October

The upcoming Major League Baseball playoffs in October will be affecting both WWE and AEW television schedules. During Wrestling Observer Radio, Dave Meltzer of F4WOnline.com commented on how WWE and AEW could end up going head-to-head again for the first time since 2021…

“AEW and WWE are both gonna have dates changed because of the upcoming Major League Baseball playoffs. It’s not gonna affect anything until mid-October, but there will be an October 18 head-to-head on Tuesday with Dynamite from Cincinnati and NXT. First time they’ve gone head-to-head in over a year.”

“The next week is going to be – it’s the American League Championship, and if there’s a Game 7 in the American League Championship, the AEW… it (the game) would be on Wednesday, so that’s the 26th. If that’s the case, they would probably have to move – the show would still be taped on Wednesday night, but they’d probably have to (air it) after the game or more likely on Thursday. There will be at least one, perhaps two SmackDowns during the World Series moved to FS1. One for sure as there is every year. If there’s a Game 6 of the World Series that would be the second week, so it depends how the World Series goes.” (quotes courtesy of WrestleTalk.com)
