WWE legend Eric Bischoff recently opened up on WWE Chairman Vince McMahon and stated whether he was concerned with the Wednesday Night Wars between WWE and AEW which began in October 2019, and it’s bad news for those in WWE who are concerned about AEW rising as a threat to their company.
It saw AEW Dynamite and NXT go head-to-head every week in terms of the television ratings. It was AEW who came out on top for the majority of the time.

“I don’t think Vince cares. I know wrestling fans like to think that there’s this battle between AEW and WWE. I’m not in WWE offices, so I’m going to suggest based on my experience and the relationships that I have with people that are in WWE, the very fact that I made an appearance on AEW a month before they inducted me into the Hall of Fame suggests to me that they really don’t care. Are they aware? Sure. Is Vince McMahon walking around kicking people in the ass saying ‘God dammit, how did they beat us to the punch?’
“I know people like to think that’s the case because deep down inside they want another wrestling war, but it isn’t. It’s just not no matter how much people want to pretend it is. It’s cosplay folks. WWE is on a different planet than AEW right now. That’s because AEW is about 24 months old or so, WWE has been around for decades and decades and decades. A lot of catching up to do folks, there is no war. There is no angst or anxiety from WWE in my opinion when it comes to AEW.”
