WWE had its Q2 2021 earnings call with investors this week, which revealed some of the thoughts and feelings of WWE Chairman, Vince McMahon.

Vince McMahon was quoted saying, when asked about AEW, “I don’t consider them competition in the way that I would consider WCW back in the day, not anywhere near close to that. And I’m not so sure what their investments are as far as their talent is concerned, but perhaps we can give them some more.” Vince did not elaborate further on this, and the call moved on.

It is widely speculated that former top WWE stars CM Punk and Daniel Bryan will be joining AEW this fall, as AEW continues to go from strength to strength.

Should Vince McMahon be concerned?

In terms of size and legacy, WWE is way ahead when it comes to being established. They have billion-dollar TV contracts, a weekly global audience, and huge sponsorship deals. AEW is far away from this, and it would take some time before they reached the particular level WWE are at right now.

Of course, for us wrestling fans, it makes for some great entertainment. We all loved The Monday Night Wars back in the ’90s, and it absolutely certain that competition makes the industry stronger. As AEW continues to expand, it will be interesting to see how WWE goes about things in the future. As for now, according to Vince, it’s business as usual.
