AEW strives to be an alternative to the product that WWE has been putting out for decades. The company has certainly made its mark in the pro wrestling industry. Eric Bischoff also laughs at the idea that AEW is a competitor to WWE.

The pro wrestling world is more competitive than ever thanks to AEW’s massive success in the past year or so. The company continues to make strides at every opportunity thanks to its various events.

While speaking on a recent episode of his Strictly Business podcast, WWE Hall Of Famer Eric Bischoff laughed at the idea that AEW is in any way a legitimate competitor to WWE.

“It’s not like WWE is losing its audience to AEW. AEW is flatter than p**s on a plate in terms of television ratings… It is what it is and WWE is not losing market share to AEW so why would they react to something that’s not affecting them?”


We will have to wait and see whether there will come a time when AEW will be seen as a legitimate competitor to WWE. While it is unlikely, anything could happen in the pro wrestling world.
