AEW is trying to start their own pro wrestling company and it sounds like they have a lot of wheels in motion at this point. You can never count WWE out when it comes to arranging a strategy in an attempt to take All Elite Wrestling down.
Dave Meltzer mentioned on Wrestling Observer Radio that since NXT is changing up their TakeOver schedule they could do something rather underhanded. The company could book TakeOver events on the same night as AEW pay-per-views just because they can.
He went on to say that although this is plausible, it’s not 100% known if WWE will take this direction. One thing that is certain is the fact that AEW is going to actively stay away from booking against WWE on weekends of their pay-per-view events.
“I do not know that this is happening. I only know that they are re-vamping NXT and it’s no longer going to be the Saturday night before these [pay-per-view] shows and AEW’s not going to be doing pay-per-views on the same day as WWE. That’s part of their strategy to avoid those weekends.”
All Elite Wrestling might try to stay away from directly competing against WWE, but they obviously aren’t receiving the same consideration from WWE.
The mindset could be to hold a TakeOver special on the WWE Network to convince people not to spend $50 on a pay-per-view. We’ll just have to see what they end up doing.
