Triple H has referred to AEW as “exciting and fresh” in WWE’s annual shareholders meeting this month.
The response by the King of Kings came when he was asked if AEW had taken some of WWE’s market share having come on the scene last year. Tony Khan’s promotion of course goes head-to-head with the NXT brand on Wednesday nights, and has generally gotten the better of it’s competition when it comes to TV ratings.
“To me, there’s a moment in time when you begin something and it’s very exciting and it’s fresh and there’s some interest in it, certainly. But it’s a big world. We continue to be focused on our product, continue to be focused on the development of our stars and our performers. And as Vince said earlier, we have a very long track record of doing this incredibly successfully for many, many, many years, and we will continue to do so.”
