Eric Bischoff Insists AEW Isn't Competition To WWE: "No Matter How Much Tony Khan Wants To Believe It Is, It's Not"

AEW isn't competition to WWE.

Eric Bischoff doesn't think so, at least.

The former WCW Executive Vice President and WWE executive / on-air performer recently appeared as a guest on Out Of Character with Ryan Satin for an interview, during which he elaborated on his belief that no matter how much Tony Khan believes they are, AEW is not a legitimate competitor to WWE.

Featured below is an excerpt from the interview where he touches on this topic with his thoughts.

“That’s an excuse. I’m not buying that. The product is boring. Nothing new has happened. Nothing has evolved. It’s the same formula up until recently, we’re talking about WWE, who is by far the dominant (company). There is no competition. AEW is not competition, no matter how much Tony Khan wants to believe it is, it’s not. You’re in the same business, Tony, but that’s not the same thing as being in competition. You’re not taking market share, Tony. You’re just in the same business. It’s kind of like having a little mom and pop hamburger stand on the corner and saying that you’re in competition with Arby’s."
