On the most recent episode of “Busted Open Radio”, Bubba Ray discussed why he thinks AEW is close to being a legitimate alternative to the WWE. Here is what he had to say:
All Out will be very indicative of what will happen the first week of TV for AEW. Especially if another name gets added to the mix. There’s so much rumblings about it being in Chicago and what if Punk shows up, but they already have a crew right now that has a coolness factor that only comes every once in a while in pro wrestling. No other company has the coolness factor that AEW does. … It’s a fun product.
You’re enjoying yourself [watching the product] and it’s an alternative. A lot of the fanfare is because people have been bugging for an alternative to WWE … a huge alternative that will be airing on TV that reminds them of the “Monday Night Wars.” Even though it won’t be a Monday night war, it’s as close to it as possible. There are people out there that want the WWE taken down in one shape or form.
