During a recent interview with VOC Nation Radio, Hernandez discussed whether he’d be interested in a stint with AEW and more. Here are the highlights:
On AEW Trying To Compete With WWE:
The WWE is a machine. Everyone has been programmed for years, and years, and years that [WWE] is the place to watch [wrestling]; AEW got a great start by being on TNT, so we’ll see what happens. I think they have some big shoes to fill unless they get some crossover from the WWE performers.
On TNA Trying To Compete With The WWE:
No disrespect to any regime that we’re talking about, but when you’re trying to compete with WWE on a Monday night, when you’re only doing a 1.3 rating on Thursday night, where’s that going to get you? They moved to Monday night and only drew a 0.4. [Then] they moved right back to Thursday.
On If He’s Interested In Joining AEW:
Anything is a possibility, but I’m just concentrating on what I’m doing now. I’m hosting the VIP Survivalist Program on late night television, teaching people to survive in the wild. My family and I also recently auditioned for a Nickelodeon TV show; I’ll know by the first week in August.
