• Roman Reigns Says There Is No Competition Between WWE & AEW
During a recent interview with The Sportster, “The Big Dog” Roman Reigns was asked about All Elite Wrestling being WWE’s competitor and Reigns said the following:
“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.”
