AEW really did change the wrestling world already and they haven’t even debuted on TNT.
Matt Hardy recently spoke to Inside The Ropes where he expressed the idea that All Elite Wrestling has only proven to help everyone so far. Competition will certainly bring interest and with that comes a competitive marketplace for wrestlers as well.
Suddenly, people are making far more and people with a lot of money are interested in pro wrestling. If you add in the fact that creative juices are now flowing as new ideas come to the surface then there’s no real losers in this situation yet.
Yes, it’s great. It’s going to help everyone, and it’s beneficial for everyone. No one is going to be on the global competition level of WWE because it’s so entrenched everywhere, but just like the AEW coming out and having this programming and having a good spot on television, it’s gonna be great for us too because it’s going to push our creative team and our minds and our talents to try and do even better.
Matt Hardy should know a thing or two about the pro wrestling landscape due to his veteran status. Hopefully, he is correct and the Wednesday Night Wars will be great for everyone involved.
