The trend of WWE and AEW wrestlers trading shots at each other has no intention of slowing down. While Dean Ambrose now known as Jon Moxley is busy firing at his previous workplace, Seth Rollins is always ready to hit him back.
This man sitting at the top of the food chain in the WWE has always appeared to be quite vocal about fans who complained about WWE’s products. The norm has not changed as seen in the latest interview.
The Fandemic convention in Houston, Texas had Universal Champion Seth Rollins in attendance who noted on several topics while sitting down for an interview.
The host asked him whether he would be competing in a dream match against Kenny Omega. The champ went on to claim that Kenny is in a minor league, as of now as he is performing in AEW. It was a direct shot at the WWE’s rival brand,
“When Kenny’s done playing in the minor leagues over there [AEW], then he can come and work at the absolute top professional wrestling company in the world, in front of the most people, and make the most money, and have the biggest matches, which is with me at WrestleMania,” said Seth Rollins.
The former brethren of Seth Rollins, Dean Ambrose is a current AEW wrestler following his departure from WWE. So he went on to fire back at the Vince McMahon owned company in return.
During a recent interview with Screen Geek, the former WWE Champion vented out his frustrations on the creative plans of the company. The below comments from him suggested how WWE might have misused him in the past few years,
“You can make a horror movie looking trailer, [mocking McMahon voice] ‘Hell in a Cell!’ all you want, but its not gonna be that. In that scenario [the match with Janela], I was like, ‘Welp, we’re going balls out, because I’m not gonna be in the business of disappointing the fans’. I’m gonna push the physicality level for my part in AEW, you know.
And when I say violence, it doesn’t necessarily mean chairs, tables, and barbed wire. It means that I’m trying to hit you so hard and put my fist through your head. I’m not here to do some gimmicky song and dance or play around or do some cartwheels before I do a little spinney thing. I’m not trying to do any of that. There’s plenty of guys who are gonna do plenty of flashy stuff. I really can’t, so I’m not even gonna try.”
These kinds of trades on the internet have become a regular thing between WWE and AEW, regularly. With the competition being an all-time high, both the companies try to low down their adversary, as much as possible. Seth Rollins or Roman Reigns are the guys who speak up often on behalf of WWE whereas Moxley or Chris Jericho does the same for AEW.
