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 in April after NXT moved to Tuesday nights.
Pro wrestling fans especially have been known to be passionate when it comes to defending their favorite promotions. AEW and WWE both have their own passionate fan bases.
While speaking to Wrestling Inc, the former WWE commentator talked about pro wrestling fans wanting wrestlers to pick a side between WWE and AEW.
“It does very much feel like you’re either ‘in’ or you’re ‘out,’ whether it’s WWE or AEW. Wrestling fans, they very much so want to take a side. They want it to be ‘us vs. them,’ WWE vs. AEW, however you want to look at that.”
We will have to see how both companies will improve their product for fans and it is unlikely pro wrestling fans won’t demand others to pick a side. The competition seems to continue despite Vince McMahon not seeing Tony Khan’s company as anywhere close to the competition that WCW was.
