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. It seems Paul Heyman has a positive outlook on AEW.
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.
While speaking with Ariel Helwani of BT Sport, Paul Heyman was asked what he thought about AEW’s current product. Heyman stated that AEW is certainly viable but also doubts AEW cares what he thinks about their product.
“They are viable. They are a viable entity. God bless them for being there. However, I am not the target audience.My personal opinion on their product, if I were to sit here and go, ‘My God, they are great,’ who cares what I think? It is merely a personal opinion and nothing more.
They are not geared towards me. If I went, ‘Oh my God, they suck, they are horrible,’ I highly doubt they should care about that either. When Dana White gave his opinion on WWE and it was not flattering, I was asked about it, and I went, ‘And?’ Who gives a f***? I do not think AEW should give a f*** what I think about them.”
Tony Khan also recently stated that there are a couple of WWE releases that he wants to snatch up for AEW. On top of that, there are also a lot of plans for long-term storylines in AEW. We will have to wait and see which former WWE Superstar AEW will sign next.
