WWE News: Top NXT Star calls AEW Great Competition. Proclaims that the greatest era of wrestling will soon begin.
AEW earlier announced that they have entered a partnership with WarnerMedia. WarnerMedia, a leading media and entertainment company creates and distributes popular content through its brands such as HBO, Warner Bro’s TNT etc, will definitely make wrestling more accessible to a broad audience.
Since their establishment, the WWE have been wary of the young company. They’ve tried to hold on to their talents to prevent them from turning up for AEW. They have acknowledged the existence of the company as competition. Something they haven’t done since the Monday night wars. While there is no official news from a WWE Spokesperson on the partnership, one WWE NXT star looks like he’s looking forward to the AEW as a challenge.

Knowing Vince and his pettiness it’ll be interesting to see how he reacts to this. Wouldn’t be surprised if Vince calls Riddle to the Main Roster just to become one of the dancers in No Way Jose’s Congo line!
