Dan Lambert compares AEW and WWE products: “I’d like to hope it’ll be back to the Monday Night Wars where everyone keeps stepping their product up to outdo the competition. Call me biased because I’m with AEW right now, but I don’t see WWE stepping their game up. Bobby Lashley is a real dear friend of mine. I love the guy. I’ve known him for 15-plus years and I’m not even at the point where I’m fast-forwarding through Monday Night Raw to get to his shtick. I don’t even hit play. I’m not a big fan of WWE’s product these days. I still think they have some really good talents over there but I just have a hard time watching it.

“The wrestling boom, in my mind, is what AEW is doing and watching their product and watching their show. Even though there are certain things in it that I don’t like. Some of the things I say in my character, I actually believe. But there are so many other things that they have. Talk about having a buffet of different genres of professional wrestling. You go to one show at AEW and see every style you like and a couple of other styles you don’t like. WWE is more of the same for me.”

Dan Lambert criticizes WWE’s approach to pro wrestling: “I see WWE as being somewhat egotistical in their approach that they are who they are and what they are. They don’t have to change anything or do anything differently and people are still going to watch. I think it’s had a little bit of an opposite effect because I think a lot of people support AEW just because they want to stick their finger in the eye of a WWE that’s run roughshod for all of these years.”

  1. Look, I get wanting to speak highly of the place that is bringing you in week after week, but when you’re current gimmick is to be a knock-off Cornette and bash all things AEW, then maybe don’t? His segments were pretty cringeworthy to begin with, even worse that he’s exposing them for a podcast?
