All Elite Wrestling is backed by billionaire, and many professional wrestling fans that are tired of the WWE product really want it to succeed. Some even state that the AEW might even beat the WWE one day. For a really long time, the WWE basically had no real competition.
No promotion in the world could even get close to beating them. The WWE still has some of the best wrestlers in the world working for them, so even for a billionaire company such as AEW, they won’t exactly be easy to beat.
During the Double or Nothing PPV event, Cody Rhodes smashed a throne that resembled the one that Triple H usually uses. Ric Flair spoke about the throne smashing segment on the WINCLY podcast. He stated that Cody had the right idea by targeting Triple H as he is the top guy in the world of professional wrestling.
"If you are going to make a statement, Hunter's a top guy," said Flair. "Hunter is a disciple of the business and could not have come along at a better time in wrestling than he did. Then of course marrying Stephanie and he's got a work ethic just like Vince has.
In my mind, if something ever happens to Vince, God forbid, Hunter will be the one running the company. "So, that's how you get someone's attention. You jump on a guy. When they are talking about you, you're doing something good. That's a good saying in this business."
