Former WWE Universal Champion Roman Reigns was recently interviewed by The Sportster to talk about several professional wrestling topics. “The Big Dog” discussed All Elite Wrestling (AEW) and whether or not the new promotion will ultimately serve as competition to the professional wrestling juggernaut where Reigns currently works as one of the company’s top stars.
Here’s what Reigns had to say about AEW potentially competing with WWE:
I’ll just say this. It’s all so new and it was what it was with Ambrose leaving and popping up over there. Competition? No, there’s no competition. WWE, we know exactly what we’re doing. We have the best talent in the world. There’s no comparing, I say that with firm confidence, all the way from the top to the very bottom. .. We are world class all the way through.
Is it another option? Sure. For wrestlers around the world and in the locker room, (even WWE’s) AEW is another option and another place to get a cheque. I’m never against optimism but I think you have foolish thoughts if you really think there’s a comparison or actual competition. Just an option, which isn’t a bad thing.
