• AEW Commentator Doesn’t Think Their Company Will Ever Get As Big As WWE
During a recent interview with Sportskeeda, AEW commentator Tony Schiavone was asked if All Elite Wrestling will ever get as big as WWE.
Below is what Tony said:
“I don’t know if AEW will ever be as big as the WWE; with a Network, and the reach that they have overseas, because WWE has been around for a long time.
But, I’d like to see it be a viable part of wrestling — I’d like it to be a place where very good professional wrestlers – both men and women – can come and make a good living, and be treated fairly…that’s what I’d like AEW to be.”
