WWE legend Dave Batista recently sat down for an interview with Chris Van Vliet. The pair touched on a number of topics including The Animal’s thoughts on AEW as a competitor to WWE.
“I don’t see it as legitimate competition [to WWE]. I see it as competition, which is great. There should always be competition. But until they actually produce one of their own major stars, until they actually have a production that is as big as WWE … I mean, WWE has already got the next three generations of Superstars because they have NXT camps all over the world now. They’re so far ahead of the game that I don’t see any real competition. Not even close.”
