While AEW has a long way to go before it can be considered an actual competition for WWE, many still believe that the rise of the promotion is signal to another war in the pro wrestling industry.
And it appears that WWE Hall Of Famer Booker T who was an active participant the last time pro wrestling industry was going through such a conflict, believes the same.
The former World Champion recently talked about the upstart promotion in the Hall Of Fame podcast and claimed that it’s not a competition in the sense that AEW is looking to build its own audience and find its own niche.
However continuing on the topic, he explained that during the Attitude Era the stars that were in WCW watched WWE and they all wanted to be better than the wrestlers of their rival promotion.
He then explained that now with AEW being on the horizon, wrestlers will have to innovate to get a crowd reaction and the former Champion then claimed that wrestling is back and the war is on.
It’s worth mentioning here that Booker T is not the only wrestler to have made such comments and AEW’s own Chris Jericho had recently claimed that the war is on whether WWE wants it or not.
