WWE doesn’t want AEW to succeed as they’ve tried to sign as much talent as possible, keep their own talent under contract
WWE Hall of Famer Kurt Angle took part in a Q&A session on his Facebook page where he talked about a wide range of topics.
During the Q&A, he was asked about a possible collaboration between AEW and WWE. Obviously, the chances of these two promotions working together aren’t likely.
While AEW has working relationships with several promotions such as AAA, Impact Wrestling, and NJPW, the likelihood of WWE wanting to work with them is the challenge in the way of this happening.
Clearly, WWE doesn’t want AEW to succeed as they’ve tried to sign as much talent as possible, keep their own talent under contract by offering them big money long term deals, and moving NXT to the USA Network to go head-to-head with AEW Dynamite.
“WWE is its own entity, an enormous company. They won’t ever collaborate with another promotion. They don’t have to. But, I don’t think it would hurt them to do it.”
Angle was also asked about the future of the current competition between them.
“I think it’s very promising. Competition is always good. It’s going to be interesting between WWE and AEW.”
I’m still a part of New Japan and you’re going to have to beat me in the ring and your stupid briefcase, walking around, looking like an idiot.
Although Jon Moxley hasn’t been able to wrestle for NJPW since February 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic, that has changed.
He’s the current IWGP United States Heavyweight Champion and will make his next title defense against KENTA at the New Beginning USA 2021 event on Friday, February 26.
It will air on NJPW World but was taped last December.
In a recent interview with New Japan Pro Wrestling, Moxley discussed his status with the company.
“I made my intentions clear at Wrestle Kingdom. I’m still, all this craziness in the world aside in the last ten months, I’m still very much a part of New Japan Pro Wrestling and will continue to be for as long as I damn well please and as much as I damn well, please.
There ain’t anything that’s going to change that. there ain’t anybody that decides that aside from me. I’m still a part of New Japan and you’re going to have to beat me in the ring and your stupid briefcase, walking around, looking like an idiot. The briefcase is very 10 years ago, I don’t know why we’re still doing that, it’s an embarrassment. Belts, shiny gold bets, that’s all that matters.”
