AEW Dynamite made its debut in October 2019 and since then has worked hard to provide an alternate product to what fans see in WWE. For the most part, they have succeeded, but there is still a lot of room for improvement.
AEW’s stock increased by a huge amount after AEW All Out, as it featured the debuts of Adam Cole and Bryan Danielson. Even Chris Jericho declared that the game changed after the conclusion of AEW All Out.
While speaking Cageside Seats, American Top Team founder Dan Lambert talked about his real opinion regarding AEW and WWE. Lambert stated that he doesn’t see WWE stepping up their game. He also stated that WWE is somewhat egotistical in their approach.
“I’d like to hope it’ll be back to the Monday Night Wars where everyone keeps stepping their product up to outdo the competition. Call me biased because I’m with AEW right now, but I don’t see WWE stepping their game up. Bobby Lashley is a real dear friend of mine. I love the guy. I’ve known him for 15+ years and I’m not even at the point where I’m fast-forwarding through Monday Night Raw to get to his shtick. I don’t even hit play. I’m not a big fan of WWE’s product these days. I still think they have some really good talents over there but I just have a hard time watching it.“The wrestling boom, in my mind, is what AEW is doing and watching their product and watching their show. Even though there are certain things in it that I don’t like. Some of the things I say in my character, I actually believe. But there are so many other things that they have. Talk about having a buffet of different genres of professional wrestling. You go to one show at AEW and see every style you like and a couple of other styles you don’t like. WWE is more of the same for me.
I see WWE as being somewhat egotistical in their approach that they are who they are and what they are. They don’t have to change anything or do anything differently and people are still going to watch. I think it’s had a little bit of an opposite effect because I think a lot of people support AEW just because they want to stick their finger in the eye of a WWE that’s run roughshod for all of these years.”
The current WWE product certainly has numerous faults and it is unknown just what the company will do to rectify them, as fans continue to get frustrated with them every passing week.
