The Wednesday Night Wars between WWE and AEW began in October 2019 as AEW Dynamite and NXT went head-to-head every week in order to see who would come out the better show. AEW Dynamite would win in the ratings war for the majority of the time. The Wars finally came to an end last month after NXT moved to Tuesday nights.

While speaking on his podcast 83 Weeks , Eric Bischoff talked about AEW recently announcing they will be return to hosting live events with crowds in July.

On the other hand WWE hasn’t announced they will be hosting live events in July. Bischoff stated that WWE doesn’t have any anxiety or angst towards AEW and Vince McMahon doesn’t necessarily care what AEW does.

“I don’t think Vince cares. I know wrestling fans like to think that there’s this battle between AEW and WWE. I’m not in WWE offices, so I’m going to suggest based on my experience and the relationships that I have with people that are in WWE, the very fact that I made an appearance on AEW a month before they inducted me into the Hall of Fame suggests to me that they really don’t care. Are they aware? Sure. Is Vince McMahon walking around kicking people in the ass saying ‘God dammit, how did they beat us to the punch?’

I know people like to think that’s the case because deep down inside they want another wrestling war, but it isn’t. It’s just not no matter how much people want to pretend it is. It’s cosplay folks. WWE is on a different planet than AEW right now. That’s because AEW is about 24 months old or so, WWE has been around for decades and decades and decades. A lot of catching up to do folks, there is no war. There is no angst or anxiety from WWE in my opinion when it comes to AEW.”

We certainly do wonder if WWE will return to touring in July as well. Many fans would still agree that WWE does care about what AEW does, no matter what WWE says.
