AEW opened up the “Forbidden Door,” and they even copyrighted the term for future merchandising use. Tony Khan and Kenny Omega might be open to WWE working with AEW, but Jon Moxley has a much better idea of how Vince McMahon operates.
Inside the Ropes recently spoke to Moxley where he went into a possible collaboration between AEW and WWE. To put it very bluntly, it’s not happening. This was something the Purveyor of Violence is very sure of.
That would never happen. That’s not even worth wasting any mental energy to… You know. I mean, if you want to fantasy book some cool sh*t. You know, maybe you could fantasy book it for, like, fun magazine, stuff. You know, Like back in the day, in magazines, you used to always have, like, “Dream match. Bill Goldberg versus Steve Austin,” in ’98. But that ain’t gonna happen.
A super event in the Tokyo Dome would be very cool, but Moxley isn’t holding his breath.
It’d be cool to think about the cool sh*t that could happen, you know, like a big summit at the Tokyo Dome, AEW, NJPW, WWE or some sh*t but that sh*t ain’t going to happen. So, you know, they do their thing. They stay over there.
WWE and AEW will continue doing their own thing. AEW is open to working with other companies which they have proven with their efforts so far alongside Impact Wrestling, NJPW, and the NWA. In the meantime, WWE will continue their efforts of global dominance on their own.
