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 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.
While speaking on the Ric Flair Wooooo Nation Uncensored Podcast, WWE Hall Of Famer Ric Flair stated that in spite of everything, WWE is still the big show compared to AEW.
“It is still the big show. Here’s the difference, I was the NWA Champion and you couldn’t have told me differently but really, the big show was WWE. Anything I’m saying, the kids in AEW can’t turn around on me because I’m using myself as an example. You could’ve never told me as NWA Champion that the big show was WWE, but what was the big show? I didn’t want to go there because I was the champion and I was in a prestigious position. If I had not been a champion, I may have gone there early too. I certainly could’ve gone there a couple times but I was loyal to Crockett, I was the World Champion and what more could you ask for?
There is no doubt AEW will keep on striving to better their product so that fans remain happy for as long as possible. With Tony Khan at the helm, the company is going through a lot of changes over the past few months. We will have to see just how the company will change in the coming years.
