Dave Meltzer is reporting that Stephanie McMahon held a talent meeting before tonight's WWE Money In The Bank pay-per-view.
The meeting contained the usual talent concerns but in addition, Stephanie acknowledged to Superstars that All Elite Wrestling (AEW) is competition.
During the meeting, Stephanie hyped WWE’s social media and YouTube viewership in which she noted the company has 1 billion followers, the number comes from a count of all their social and talents social media accounts.
She then said the company has to compete with video games, movies, and other streaming services and AEW.
This is believed to be the first time WWE management has openly admitted that AEW is competition to their talent.
