AEW got a lot of attention because of the amount of merchandise that The Elite was selling online and in Hot Topic stores across the country. However, they are way more than a t-shirt company.

If AEW Double Or Nothing was a t-shirt company’s commercial then it might have been the best commercial of all time.

On Talk Is Jericho, Y2J discussed how people view AEW as a t-shirt company and he addressed some of those jokes. Make no mistake about it they are not a t-shirt company and they are doing big things.

“Make no mistake about it; there are lots of jokes about us being a t-shirt company and all these different things, or a soda company where you can go to my Instagram and we are selling AEW Root Beer. Now, we are actually getting rolling. I think that it is a long time coming and a lot of haters. They say that AEW sucks and that they are never going to get off the ground and meanwhile we have a roster of over 50 talents with some of the greatest performers in the world and some of the greatest performers you have never heard of before, which is another thing I love about this.”


AEW has the ball rolling in a big way. There is excitement about everything they do as a new alternative to WWE is emerging. Only time will tell how things will go once they start airing a show on TNT, but they are off to a tremendous start so far.

I love pro wrestling and hate BS. These two things drive me. Years of experience in writing, journalism, and digging exclusive insider info for Ringside News. Worked in finance before realizing pro wrestling journalism made much less sense. Pro beachballs at pro wrestling shows, pro dives if someone catches, anti bullies, olives, and pineapples on pizza.
