Roman Reigns is very protective of WWE because it’s his yard. This is why he doesn’t have much love to publicly give for AEW.
SPORT1 in Germany recently spoke to Cody Rhodes about any shots that Reigns took at All Elite Wrestling. He understands that because Roman Reigns is the Big Dog in WWE. That company is treating him very well, but AEW is also building something worth protecting.
“[Roman] is very, very smart, he has WrestleMania main event under his belt, he has incredible talent. I think at the time, a lot of people were … I don’t wanna say naive. People were turning away from it, but there’s no turning away now.”
“WWE’s on a 49 year head start and I tip my hat for that. But what we’re doing is to build upon what fans have been talking about for 20 years, what they want from a wrestling product and what perhaps wasn’t delivered to them. We want to be the alternative. If that means stepping into competition, so be it. It’s better to have competition, for me, for Roman, for everybody.”
2020 is bound to be an interesting year in the world of pro wrestling news. We’ll probably hear some shots fired in both directions, but the mission for AEW remains the same to present a legitimate pro wrestling alternative.
