Shane McMahon takes shot at AEW

He said something to Kevin Owens on Twitter about sending him to be elite before they buy them out. Can someone please embed the tweet.

You can take this in a number of ways:

1. The WWE is working with AEW
2. The WWE do not see AEW as a threat otherwise they would not be acknowledging their existence

What do you guys think, is there something fishy going on?

Re: Shane McMahon takes shot at AEW

Just banter.

Shane McMahon doesn't even realize he's part of the problem with WWE programming. Pushing himself like some bad ass when he's a 50 yr old man who only wrestled in sparingly but always in a co-main event angle or higher.

He thinks that because he takes a physical beating in his once in a blue moon matches he has cred.

3. They see them as such a threat that they think it's pointless to pretend they don't exist
4. Members of the McMahon-Levesque family have more leeway on what they can say than normal talent

I like how the bigger company that has been around for so many years has to feel like they need to take a shot which only is good publicity for all elite wrestling

Re: Shane McMahon takes shot at AEW

WWE wants to present themselves as the only legit wrestling company by throwing their weight around.

The problem they have is that there is a large contingent of wrestling fans who simply are done with them. They aren't going to be able to kill AEW because they won't be able to regain the trust of those people.

Re: Shane McMahon takes shot at AEW

What a Corporate tool. If he cared about the industry he'd say they're going to have better quality stories and matches.

Instead it's "Hey we so rich lolol". Yeah that really makes me want to tune in, keep emphasizing you have so much money you don't have to care anymore.

Re: Shane McMahon takes shot at AEW

If someone takes shots at a company how does your logic think it means they are not a threat ? wwe approach to this for years was to not say aything.That has all changed now. I promise you AEW is something.

I don't think anything is going on. He's just talking shit.
