• Tony Khan Reacts To Vince McMahon Saying He Doesn’t Consider AEW As Competition
Earlier this year, during WWE’s Q2 earnings call, Vince McMahon was asked if he sees AEW as competition to WWE in the same way he saw WCW back in the 90s.
Here’s what Vince said:
“I don’t consider them competition in the way that I would consider WCW back in the day, not anywhere near close to that. And I’m not so sure what their investments are as far as their talent is concerned, but perhaps we can give them some more.”
During a recent interview with DAZN, AEW President Tony Khan had the following to say about Vince’s comments:
“Do they see us as rivals or competition? They say we’re not, but I’ve heard that AEW shows are on monitors in the Gorilla position over there, so I take that as a compliment if they’re watching us whilst trying to run their own show.
I also admire them for that because trying to run a show whilst watching another show is something else. I put everything into producing our shows so there’s no way I’d be watching something else whilst trying to get on with things.”
