• Real Reason Why WWE Can’t Admit AEW Is Competition

Multiple WWE names have stated during recent interviews that WWE doesn’t see AEW as competition. The most recent WWE star to do so was “The Big Dog” Roman Reigns.

Below is what Reigns said during a recent interview with The Sportster:

“I’ll just say this. It’s all so new and it was what it was with Ambrose leaving and popping up over there… Competition? No, there’s no competition.

WWE, we know exactly what we’re doing. We have the best talent in the world. There’s no comparing, I say that with firm confidence, all the way from the top to the very bottom. We are world class all the way through.”

According to the Wrestling Observer, WWE officials very well know they’re in a war with AEW, but they can’t admit it publicly:

“They are competition to be sure, and inside WWE it’s talked about that it’s a war and moves are being discussed constantly. But you can’t say that publicly, because doing so makes them bigger competition when it comes to public perception.”
