• Hall Of Famer Says AEW Can’t Compete With WWE

During a recent Q&A session on Facebook, WWE Hall of Famer Kurt Angle was asked about All Elite Wrestling and if AEW will be able to compete with WWE.

Below is what Angle said:

“AEW will do very well. BUT, it’s not WWE. WWE is a monster. It will be fun to see how this pans out. I’ve seen companies in the past attempt to make a run against WWE. WCW was actually neck and neck.

TNA was not able to compare, but they had a great run with amazing talent, and TNA was a solid #2. AEW has some amazing talent as well, but WWE is so global, I don’t think anyone will catch them.”
