The relationship between WWE and Lucha Libre AAA Worldwide has been revealed over the signing of Dragon Lee.
AAA’s Konnan was speaking on the MuscleManMalcolm podcast when he addressed the steps that WWE had to take over filming at their shows.
The former WCW United States Heavyweight Champion would reveal:
“Obviously, WWE had to ask permission (to come film Dragon Lee announcing that he would be joining their company) and I’ve always been a big fan of, no matter what political issue, what political problems there are between promotions and yeah, we’ll back a promotion if we have to but I don’t wanna get mired in political sh*t, I don’t wanna know that, ‘Oh, well you don’t work with him, you don’t want me to work with him.’”
Konnan would then go on to discuss why he sees the need for this relationship within wrestling, saying:
“I think everybody should work together because if you’re outside WWE, who’s a mega monster, they’re like McDonalds, Walmart, you know what I’m saying? And everybody else should be working together. You know why? For the benefit of the fans.
“For that and you’re gonna make money because if you put matchups people haven’t seen, they’re gonna pay to see it so you’re making more money, the boys get an extra payday and the fans are happy. It’s win across the board.”
Konnan was recently revealed as the name who will be inducing Rey Mysterio into the WWE Hall of Fame Class of 2023.
He would also discuss how Rey Mysterio nearly ended up in the minis division.
With Dominik seeking a match with his father at WrestleMania 39, Konnan would also weigh in on which Mysterio should be victorious.
It was also recently revealed that Tony Khan and Konnan had a meeting to attempt to mend the frayed relationship between AEW and AAA.
