That’s a shot across the internet. Wrestling has gotten a lot more interesting in recent months due to the rise of AEW. The company has started to come after WWE, becoming the first team in a very long time to actually do so. That is the case with Dynamite regularly defeating NXT on Wednesday nights, though there are a lot more names in WWE who are capable of coming after AEW. That seemed to be the case on Sunday, with a shot from WWE on Twitter.
Since it has debuted, AEW has taken a few shots at WWE. This includes Cody hitting a Triple H style throne with a sledgehammer among other things. There have been some shots that did not land, but WWE has not taken as many shots back at WWE. However, that was not the case during one of the biggest matches at Sunday night’s Survivor Series event when a shot was taken at AEW.
During the Brock Lesnar vs. Rey Mysterio Universal Title match, Mysterio’s son Dominick came to the ring carrying a towel. Lesnar was not having any of it and threw the towel over the top rope. The WWE on FOX Twitter account posted a message saying that WWE does not throw in a towel to end a match. This was a reference to Maxwell Jacob Friedman throwing in a towel to end the Cody vs. Chris Jericho AEW World Title match at Full Gear.

It was a heck of a match. Check out Lesnar vs. Mysterio and MJF’s fallout from the moment:
Opinion: This is the kind of thing that doesn’t matter in the slightest but it is going to get some people talking. The Twitter account is not from WWE and isn’t even affiliated with Monday Night Raw, but at least it does seem to have a sense of humor. If AEW can take shots at WWE, there is no reason that WWE can’t do the same thing right back to them. This doesn’t mean anything, but it was pretty funny.
Should AEW keep taking shots at WWE? Was the towel spot a swipe at AEW? Let us know in the comments below.
