Big E recently appeared on My Mom’s Basement with Robbie Fox and discussed how he doesn’t want to be involved in any social media back and forth between WWE and AEW as he has friends and wrestlers he admires over at AEW.
During the episode, he said: “So man, if that’s how you feel, do your thing. I’m all for it. I’ll just speak for me. I am a fan. I think competition makes everyone better. I have friends over there. I have people who I think are incredibly talented that might not be friends, but I’m a fan of so much going on over there. And yeah, so I know the fans love the sniping. They love the back and forth. I think it’s often entertaining too [but] it’s not really my cup of tea.” (H/T Sportskeeda)
The WWE seems to be enjoying the competition AEW is giving to the WWE and thinks it’s just a great thing for wrestling in general as it brings more visibility to the sport and its producers.
He also mentioned that he would love for the forbidden door to be open for both companies.
“Just because I said there’s so many people that I root for over there. And I think competition is great for everyone all around, and I’m glad the fans are engaged. It’s not my thing. But people love pot stirring and it’s interesting, the idea of — I don’t know if it’s ever feasible but you know, just like, is that forbidden door gonna be open here between us and them? Like, imagine that? That would be incredible. I think that would be really interesting.” (H/T Sportskeeda)
Now it’s not very likely that we will see some sort of treaty between WWE and AEW in the next few years however it is nice to know that some current superstars are open to it.
