AEW’s inception came about at Double Or Nothing 2019 and since then, the company has done all it could to provide a product that true lovers of pro wrestling would enjoy. For the most part, they have succeeded, but there is still a 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 to their roster, ensuring that the roster is one of the most stacked in all of pro wrestling.

The backstage environments in WWE and AEW are undoubtedly different. As a few former WWE Superstars have mentioned in the past. Both companies have their own ideals as to how they conduct their work.

While speaking on his podcast The Hall of Fame, Booker T talked about WWE’s numerous issues. While doing so, Booker T also mentioned the one thing AEW has which WWE lacks. That ultimately came down to AEW stars looking like they always have a lot of fun.

“I agree with a lot of it, but the one thing I think even WWE, the company that I worked for, needs to keep an eye on, one thing that I’ve always noticed is, there doesn’t have to be a whole lot of people there, but if you see it on television, and it looks like it’s a lot of people there and it looks like that everybody’s having fun, you feel like you missed out on something.

You’re like, man, I wished I had been there. Man, that looked awesome. it looks like they are having a whole lot of fun, it’s got fuel to get bigger. That’s the one thing that you cannot discount as far as AEW goes.”

Both WWE and AEW have their own philosophies when it comes to creating content. However, it seems for many fans, AEW simply has that edge over WWE in the fields that matter.
