Roman on AEW


Hi Scott,

your thoughts on Roman Reigns’ opinion of AEW?

I don’t see the real competition with AEW because I think their fan
base legitimately is a hardcore fan base. So there’s like a ceiling and a built-in ground to that viewership. The WWE is trying to connect with everyone. We’re trying to connect with the mainstream. We’re trying to pull in the casual fan. We’re trying to engage
the new viewer, while also servicing our hardcore fan base and give them compelling stories to fulfill them as well. I don’t know if I’ve said it before, but I’ve said it before, when the audience is probably the biggest character in your show, that’s strange
to me. You’ll hear it all the time, the reviews and the comparisons. I think because they are the new kids on the block, they’re the cool kids in town, I guess, because of how premature and how novel it kind of still is, I think they’re still being babied
by these hardcore wrestling fans.”


Roman needs to not talk about this stuff.  He comes off much better that way.
