AEW came into being in January 2019 and held its first event called Double Or Nothing in May of that year. With AEW Dynamite debuting in October of 2019, the company has worked hard to provide an alternate product to what fans see in WWE since then. For the most part, they have succeeded, but there is still lot of room for improvement.

AEW has all the momentum in the world right now thanks to the debuts of CM Punk, Bryan Danielson and Adam Cole in the company. This has certainly made many fans happy but others believe WWE simply doesn’t care about AEW’s success.

It cannot be denied that in two years AEW has become one of the most talked-about pro wrestling planets on the planet and there are several reasons for that as Jon Moxley would agree.

While speaking to Rick Ucchino and Tony Pike on Cincy 360, Jon Moxley talked about AEW’s growth over the past couple of years and stated that AEW couldn’t have gone better since its start in 2019.


“Yeah, it’s crazy to see when all of this was all just like an idea. It’s like, really? Like, wow, it seemed almost unrealistic, but to take the gamble to come here and be like, ‘Well you know what if you guys are doing that I want to be a part of that like so maybe we’ll fall flat on our face and all look stupid and this will be a big disaster. But if it was successful, that would be really cool because that’s what wrestling needs,’ and just looking at now two and a half years later I don’t think it could have gone any better.”

Mick Foley also recently said that aspiring young talents will prefer going to AEW instead of WWE nowadays. Eric Bischoff believes AEW will soon close the gap with WWE in the future. While AEW certainly has a lot of room for improvement, they are definitely on the right path and the next couple of months will be a crucial period of time for the company.
