If there wasn’t a struggle, each time an enormous [rating] quantity goes down, they wouldn’t be evaluating it to WWE. And I get 80,000 plus, you recognize — that’s rather a lot, man. Wembley Stadium, that’s an enormous present. And the factor is, that’s nice for AEW. It truly is, it’s actually nice for AEW. And the factor is, how lengthy they’ve been selling this factor now? I imply, they’ve had time to promote 80,000 tickets as effectively. So it’s nice for them.

If you end up in competitors man, you bought to, you bought to choose up velocity. And that’s what everyone is doing. So for me, being in a struggle isn’t a foul factor.”

After which Rampage numbers got here out additionally on the identical evening. They usually did… 398,000. And the factor is, I feel that these numbers ought to be rather a lot greater. That’s what I’m pondering greater than something. However 398,000 on the identical evening as Smackdown. That’s not that nice of a quantity. And it looks as if one ought to be maybe involved if there’s struggle. If there’s not a struggle, there’s no downside. However I do assume it’s a struggle. And the struggle, it’s not going to occur abroad. It’s going to occur proper right here within the States.”
