The world of professional wrestling is super interesting these days. The WWE can generate millions of dollars every year, but they are feeling threatened by the arrival of AEW. Even the smaller indie promotions are doing well and are getting attention.
All Elite Wrestling is backed by billionaire, Shahid Khan, so they can hire WWE wrestlers that leave the company as well. The WWE is trying its best to lock down its talent and give them long term deals. That is to stop them from joining any rival promotions, especially the AEW.
The AEW is getting popular, even though they have not organized a single event. AEW chants can be heard during a few WWE events and they were heard during the Hall of Fame Ceremony this year. AEW has Chris Jericho and Kenny Omega.
They are some of the most respected wrestlers of the world. Xavier Woods ran into Chris Jericho on a plane. Jericho took that opportunity and posted a picture on his Instagram account that included Xavier Woods and himself in it.
“What a pleasant surprise running into @xavierwoodsphd on the red eye from @flylaxairport! Thx to the brother in 6B who switched seats so me and Woodsie could talk @upupdwndwn, @gameofthrones, apron powerbombs & #TheWatch....!” AEW will be holding its first real PPV event in Las Vegas that will be called Double or Nothing.
