The former WWE star Maria Kanellis seems to be furious with the recent comments of WWE Chairman Vince McMahon about AEW. The former WWE Diva fired back at him and sent out a fiery Tweet.
Maria Kanellis slams Vince McMahon
WWE Chairman shared his thoughts on All Elite Wrestling(AEW) during the WWE Q2 2021 earnings call and stated that he does not consider Tony Khan’s promotion as major competition to his company and they are nowhere around as WCW were back in the day.
Vince also stated that when it comes to AEW’s talent, WWE could give Khan some more of them.
Maria Kanellis took great offense to McMahon’s comments and lambasted him for the same in a tweet. She wrote:
“Wow. To think of human beings as pawns on a chessboard. That must be one of the most elitist things I’ve heard in a while. I could never think of mothers, children, fathers, people in that way. People are people. Playing with peoples lives is cruel.”
While another fan said:
“It’s a business. The government does that to military members, other sports see their players that way. You’re only bothered by it because it’s your industry.”
“I’m bothered by it in every industry that has this as their culture that they cultivate. My brother is in the military, my dad was a prison guard, my mom worked in a nursing home. I have a much broader understanding than the very small scope you are trying to put on me.”
Wow. To think of human beings as pawns on a chessboard. That must be one of the most elitist things I’ve heard in a while. I could never think of mothers, children, fathers, people in that way. People are people. Playing with peoples lives is cruel. https://t.co/pRiMkk6tea
