While it was funny, you also know that deep down Vince is furious that the money men over there have more cash than he does.

They really dont. WWE is a wrestling company. Shad Khan owns a wrestling company. He's only picking up people who Vince would never pay over the odds for.

They absolutely have more money than Vince. And ted turner “owned a wrestling company” and Vince couldn’t help himself wasting tv time to try and troll him. And if they’re to be believed, Vince offered those guys a ton of money and they all turned him down. We’ll never know the figures though I imagine so it’s neither here nor there.

Ted Turner owned a wrestling company. He doesnt anymore. WWE runs the business. Shad Khan can have as much money as he likes, its Vince who controls the majority of the market share. Which is way more important than having a bit more capital than Vince McMahon. WWE is Vince's bread and butter. It isnt Shad Khans.

You're making points that, while correct, have nothing at all to do with what I said. WWE does run the business, yes. But the Khans (not AEW) have more money than Vince and, if history is anything to go by, Vince will be irked by this and we can expect more juvenile references that just make them look silly to anyone outside the bubble.

Vince McMahon is a really busy chap. He’s an executive of a massive company, travels to nearly every TV taping whilst managing said huge conglomerate and all of it’s respective sub-divisions, and he’s trying to get his other pet project in the XFL off the ground at the same time. At most, someone will have mentioned AEW in passing to him and he’ll have a couple of people keep an eye on it for him and he’ll have heard smatterings about what they’re up to, but to suggest he’s even remotely threatened or arsed about them or their potential at this stage is madness. He was probably as confused as 90% of his audience when the references started during the HOF and probably had to ask someone what those were about, if he even had time to do that considering he’ll have been in full on production mode on the company’s biggest weekend of the year at that point. 

I want AEW to do well as much as anyone but even with vast sums of cash they couldn’t be further apart and that won’t change for at least a decade as a best-case scenario. On top of the market share, you’re talking about a company that’s got generations of fans behind it and production values that are genuinely better than most feature film studios (give or take the odd bit of shit entrance CGI). On the scale of 1-10 for the amount of fucks Vince gives about them, I’d call it a 1 at best.

Vince is a petty bastard. He'll fuck with anyone who sticks their head above the parapet. I doubt he's furious or even worried but he'll give them a kicking when he gets the chance.

Been freelance for ages I think, guessing it must have been a decent offer. Wasn't she rumoured to have been on WWE's radar at one point?

She's got a decent following in Japan I think. Not sure about internationally.

Read a news article on her today about the signing, apparently she’s moving over to the states full time and speaks very good English so good for her.

She's good from what I've seen of her.

The one thing I'm hoping from AEW is that it gives wrestlers that fall outside the WWE bubble a decent platform. Interested to see how the DDT deal works out.

This "Vince is scared" shit can fuck off though. He's probably mildly annoyed at best.
