Since the beginning of the Wednesday Night War, people have asked if NXT would move to a different night. Now, it appears that this may be happening in the near future.
The Mat Men Pro Wrestling Podcast revealed today that they had heard from a reliable source that NXT will be moving to Tuesdays. This change would reportedly be happening starting April 13, 2021. They also noted that the announcement should be coming fairly soon. Here is the tweet:

There have been rare cases in the last 18 months where NXT has moved to Tuesday for one-off shows. The move has been shown to improve their ratings as they are no longer going head-to-head with AEW Dynamite. The show currently airs from 8:00-10:00 pm on the USA Network in the United States.
It is unclear if this is the motivation behind a potential change, but we will provide updates on the situation as soon as more details become available.
