In an interview with Complex earlier this week, the WWE Universal Champion claimed he doesn’t see AEW as competition for WWE.
“I don’t see the real competition [with AEW] because I think their fan base legitimately is a hardcore fan base,” Reigns explained. “So there’s like a ceiling and a built-in ground to that viewership. [The WWE is] trying to connect with everyone. We’re trying to connect with the mainstream.”
Reigns’ comments wound up getting a reaction out of Junior dos Santos. Just a day after making his pro wrestling debut for during Friday night’s Rampage, the AEW wrestler fired back at Reigns on Twitter.
“Hey @WWERomanReigns I heard your interview. Please send the address of this club you will throw me and my little brothers out of #AEW,” he wrote.
