Lita Compares WWE vs. AEW Energy To The Attitude Era


WWE Hall of Famer Lita talked about a wide range of topics during an interview with Steve Muehlhausen of DAZN

During it, she talked about the competition between AEW and WWE, which she compared to the Attitude Era when WWE was competing with WCW. 

“I think it’s exciting. It’s exciting to see fans so excited about another product,” Lita said. “I hearken back to when I was wrestling, and we all had friends in WCW. We would call them. WCW had the replay, and as soon as we were done, we’d all raced to the hotel room and watched our friends. We’d be calling them in and commenting on that. So that part of it excites me from the workers’ standpoint. From the wrestlers’ standpoint of having friends and different promotions, we want to push each other to do better. I love seeing a viable place with competition, and it just being a new company, they’re fresh, right? They haven’t had to go through recycling all these storylines because they’ve been around for a long time. So I think there’s a lot of potential for expanding.

“I just love seeing the fans like it really deep because I think that excitement of the fans being excited about wrestling translates to the other promotions. It makes people think it would do the opposite, but then people are like ‘I want more good wrestling.’ So, they’re checking in at WWE, Ring of Honor, Impact, NWA, and GCW.”
