Vince McMahon shocked investors during the Q2 earnings call by admitting the current WWE product is nowhere close to the levels it needs to be.
McMahon also admitted that WWE will do something in terms of better content, more controversy, and storylines.
More surprising, Vince admitted that it won’t be full Attitude Era, but stated AEW indirectly as “a new competitor”. There you have it, AEW is now competition to the WWE, if it came out of the gullet of VKM.
