WWE is the largest wrestling company in the world and that will most likely will not change anytime soon. However, with the inception of AEW and its surge in popularity as of late, owing to its well-received events, fans are of the opinion that WWE might finally have proper competition.
According to a report by Sean Ross Sapp, he was told that WWE plans on going against AEW. WWE airing the EVOLVE 10th Anniversary special on the same day as AEW Fight For The Fallen might have been intentional. This is certainly an interesting move on WWE’s part as this means they might be seeing AEW as competition as well.
