On SmackDown last week, Roman Reigns took a shot at AEW, and people backstage in WWE were reportedly very happy.
On AEW this week, Christian Cage took a shot at WWE, and people backstage in WWE were reportedly very unhappy.
According to Bryan Alvarez on Wrestling Observer Live, Christian’s comments were met with a fair amount of anger from some in WWE, even though WWE had taken a blatant shot at AEW less than a week beforehand. Alvarez said:
“Someone in WWE texted me and they were all excited when Roman Reigns made that comment last week, and the comment that the Usos made and they were so happy that they had taken the shot, and then on Dynamite, Christian Cage took a shot at WWE and they were angry. I was like, bro, come on it goes both ways, that’s just what’s gonna happen.”
Despite WWE promising they’re not in a war with AEW and vice versa, these snide shots will likely continue until the end of time.
