• WWE Stars Unhappy About Vince McMahon’s Recent Comments
During WWE’s Q2 earnings call, Vince McMahon was asked about his views on AEW being WWE’s competitor.
Here’s what Vince said:
“It’s certainly not going to a situation (like with WCW) where it’s the rising tide because that was when Ted Turner was coming after us with all of Time Warner’s assets as well. That was a different situation.
AEW is where they are. I don’t know what their plans are, I only know what our plans are. I don’t consider them a competition like I would WCW back in the day, nowhere near close to that.”
On the subject on AEW signing a lot of released WWE wrestlers, Vince said the following:
“I’m not so sure what their investments are as far as their talent is concerned, but perhaps we can give them some more.”
This was most probably Vince’s way of teasing more WWE wrestlers getting released in the future.
Former WWE Superstar & current Impact Wrestling World Tag Team Champion Karl Anderson tweeted the following about this:
“The amount of unhappy texts I get from people there, well, the whole professional wrestling world is waiting for ya…”
