• WWE Officials Think AEW Will Implode Under Their Own Hype

All Elite Wrestling has produced two events so far – Double Or Nothing in May and Fyter Fest in June.

Both events were enjoyed by the fans, but Fyter Fest didn’t have as much interest as Double Or Nothing had.

According to Tom Colohue, WWE officials aren’t feeling any pressure due to AEW and they feel that AEW will implode under their own hype:

“‘The feeling is that AEW will implode under the weight of their own hype. Nobody here is feeling any pressure’ – WWE source.”

You can watch highlights from AEW Fyter Fest’s main event (Jon Moxley vs. Joey Janela – Non-Sanctioned match) below:
