One of the most iconic general managers of the blue brand Teddy Long was recently interviewed by WrestlingInc where he shared his thoughts on the brand’s shift to the FOX network and a lot more.
After being part of SmackDown for eight years across two different things, Long revealed what the switch truly means for the blue brand. He said:
“It’s huge; it’s a great move for SmackDown. It’s certainly gonna expand the SmackDown brand and it’s gonna do a lot for the WWE,” stated Long. “I’m real excited about it and I can’t wait and I know the WWE Universe can’t wait to tune into the FOX Network for SmackDown Live playa.”
Despite making its arrival as a potential threat to WWE, Teddy Long doesn’t feel that AEW is a threat while asserting that WWE will always remain on the top. He stated:
“It’s always good to have competition. The WWE is always gonna be my home, but I wish much love and success to AEW, ROH, all these guys out there,” said Long. “Everybody is trying to make money and I wanna see them make money. Competition is always good and they can do whatever they want but they are not gonna beat the WWE. You can believe that playa.”
