WWE vs. AEW
AEW has always been ahead in the scoring battle with WWE, particularly in the target demographic of 18-49 years old. WWE, meanwhile, is continuing its family orientation strategy. WWE is TV-PG while AEW is TV-14. However, industry experts point out that this gives AEW greater creative freedom. Sparks have already flown between the two wrestling brands. Take, for example, Matt Hardy, who apparently shot WWE after AEW All Out when he tweeted, “How we all feel after tonight’s absolutely WONDERFUL #AEWAllOut 2021 event. @AEW kill him! Said Matt Hardy. He also posted a GIF of his match with Sammy Guevara on AEW, where he said, “The competition is in the mud. I like to see it.

So they have the right theory on it, but they lose them. young adults. The 18 to 40-year-old WWE was in the Attitude Age, that’s more of the leadership of AEW right now. They swear on the air, they lift their middle finger. It’s more an attitude Attitude Era, says Angle.
