He said, “Who knows because the WWE is the face of what pro wrestling is. They’re always gonna grab the casual fan. I like Roman Reigns, personally, a lot. I was reading an interview where he was basically saying, ‘We’re gonna do it our way. We want the casual fan,’ and I guess on the inside, you can say what you want, but you feel the heat from them, they feel like everyone who doesn’t watch them.”

“We’re just this weird hardcore fanbase, but I think what you’re looking over is the fact the weird hardcore fanbase, all of us, we’re growing larger, and larger and larger. And now, you and I who grew up as fans as a kid, we have an entertainment dollar, and we want to spend it on wrestling. It doesn’t have to be one thing.”

Contrasting attitudes between WWE and AEW is a major defining factor

WWE doesn’t shy from bringing back legends of the business to ward off its competition from harming the ratings. However, AEW’s approach has been totally different, as they carefully insert these grizzled veterans with younger talent. This approach perfectly states that WWE is simply trying to entertain the audience.

Meanwhile, AEW’s team is actively working for the hardcore audience with meaningful storylines and by reigniting the old-school feuds. Therefore, while AEW may not be able to best WWE, but it can definitely become a unique product of its own.
