I guess that counts as a shot fired. This past weekend, WWE presented Takeover: Cardiff as part of its NXT UK brand. Later in the day, AEW offered All Out, their fourth ever show and second major pay per view. It is no secret that the two companies are in competition with each other, but one of the top AEW stars has made a bit of a joke about one of the most important people in WWE.
The main event of All Out featured Adam Page vs. Chris Jericho for the inaugural AEW World Title. Page, best known as a cowboy, rode a horse to the ring for a special entrance. During the latest episode of Being The Elite, which was filmed backstage at All Out, Page officially named the horse Hunter Horse Helmsley, a play on the full name of Triple H, which is short for Hunter Hearst Helmsley.
There is a lot of good stuff in this one. Check out the latest episode of Being The Elite:
Opinion: I mean, I guess it’s better than hitting the throne with a sledgehammer again. AEW is still a brand new company and is going head to toe with the most powerful wrestling company in the world. They certainly have some momentum at the moment but do you really want to poke at the other company so early? It isn’t even that funny of a joke, so was it really the best idea?
Do you like the horse name? Should AEW take shots at WWE? Let us know in the comments below.
