Without any doubt, AEW is currently the biggest competition of WWE. They have signed some of the biggest names in the world of professional wrestling today. Most awaited return in professional wrestling has to be the return of CM Punk, which WWE failed to offer the fans but but AEW made The Impossible fream possible.
This is not the first time a professional wrestling promotion is giving competition to WWE. There were a lot of professional wrestling promotion that were competitions of WWE before. Promotions like WCW, ECW and TNA Wrestling, all were rivals of WWE at a time. But WWE was able to beat them all. But it would not be very easy for them to surpass AEW.
Eric Bischoff who is the current boss of WWE recently spoke to CBS Sports’ Shakiel Mahjouri where he talked about his current relationship with the co owner of the All Elite Wrestling, Tony Khan. He said;
“We were friendly and cordial. Mutual respect there. All that good stuff. It wasn’t until recently, I was asked a question and I responded and it caused, I’m guessing, hard feelings from Tony.
“I tried to call Tony and he didn’t call me back. Someone told me, who Tony was complaining to, about how upset he was about the things that I said. He said, ‘Hey, why don’t you give Tony a call?’ I said, ‘Sure! I’m not mad at Tony.’
“I don’t carry grudges. It doesn’t change the way I feel about Tony, I just had to express my opinion and react to something Tony actually said that involved me and I took as being disrespectful of my accomplishments and even more disrespectful, and quite frankly, ignorant, with relation to the comment he made about Ted Turner.
“That’s what I reacted to. But I wasn’t angry with Tony. When my friend said to give him a call, I thought, ‘alright, I’ll give him a call.’ I left a message and I haven’t heard back so, evidently, he’s a little pissed off. But that’s OK.”
