Report: WarnerMedia Unhappy About WWE’s Recent AEW Comments


After WWE’s recent comments about AEW in the Toronto Star, it has now been reported that WarnerMedia officials are unhappy with WWE’s remarks.

In the article, WWE described a recent street fight match in AEW as “gory self-mutilation that bloodied several women.” As well as going on to state that: “We [WWE] had an edgier product in the ‘Attitude’ era and in a 2022 world, we don’t believe that type of dangerous and brutal display is appealing to network partners, sponsors, venues, children, or the general public as a whole.”

These comments have reportedly been met with a negative reception from WarnerMedia, a company of which both TNT and TBS are subsidiaries.

The latest edition of the Wrestling Observer Newsletter notes that WarnerMedia officials that have seen the comment from WWE believe the quote is an attempt at a personal attack against the company, with the goal of damaging their advertising sales in mind.

As of the time of writing, AEW President & CEO Tony Khan has not responded to the comments made by WWE.
