During Monday Mailbag with Mike Chioda, the former referee revealed that The Big Man always wants to be at the top. This is why Vince McMahon is cautious about AEW’s accelerated climb to the top.

“Yes, I think he is. He always wants to be on top. I have seen him demolish and step on a lot of territories around the country and around the world. He wants to be number one. Everybody wants to be number one whether it’s in their sport, in their career, or owning a company. I definitely think he’s very concerned right now because they’re picking up some good talent. I know Vince. Vince is concerned.” H/t Sportskeeda
