Dax Harwood and Cash Wheeler of FTR recently sat down for interview with Inside The Ropes covering a wide range of topics. During the interview, they discussed the main difference between WWE CEO Vince McMahon and his AEW counterpart Tony Khan.
“We get texts from guys in charge there or Tony [Khan] himself saying ‘What are you guys thinking for this week?’ cause they want the input cause they know the talent knows better than anybody else.”
“I don’t want to come off as bitter toward WWE cause we are not bitter, but it’s honestly night and day. The biggest difference is Tony and AEW are not afraid of being pro wrestling, they embrace it. They embrace the qualities that pro wrestling brings, they embrace that phrase and they love pro wrestling.“
“I think Vince loves pro wrestling too, but I think he wants it to be bigger and grander than his perception of pro wrestling. With Tony and AEW, they’re not afraid of that. It’s very busy on the television days, but it’s easier to get in contact with Tony than it is with Vince. With Vince, they have 30 writers that don’t belong [in WWE], they get paid a ton of money and get first class seats while we’re sitting coach. They’re afraid to talk to Vince, they’re afraid to see him face to face. They don’t even want to be known that they work there so they can keep collecting a paycheck. It’s such a broken system there.”
