While promoting his new movie, “Fast and The Furious: Hobbs and Shaw”, Roman Reigns gave his thoughts on All Elite Wrestling in an interview with The Sportster.
Reigns feels that AEW is no competition for WWE, regardless if his former Shield member Jon Moxley joined the new promotion. Reigns didn’t have anything negative to say about his former brother in arms, but he does feel like All Elite Wrestling is simply another option.
When asked, “do you think it’s good that a company like AEW exists and might present some form of competition for WWE?” Reigns responded, “I’ll just say this. It’s all so new and it was what it was with Ambrose leaving and popping up over there… Competition? No, there’s no competition. WWE, we know exactly what we’re doing. We have the best talent in the world. There’s no comparing, I say that with firm confidence, all the way from the top to the very bottom, we are world class all the way through.”
“Is it another option? Sure.” For wrestlers around the world and in the locker room, (even WWE’s) AEW is ‘another option and another place to get a cheque.'”
Reigns added “I’m never against optimism but I think you have foolish thoughts if you really think there’s a comparison or actual competition. Just an option, which isn’t a bad thing.”
