Its not uncommon to see AEW reference the WWE in their programming. The WWE has generally ignored until this week’s episode of Monday Night RAW.
Following the much talked about promo between CM Punk and MJF last week that was filled with WWE references, Edge proceeded to take a dig at AEW during his heated promo with the Miz.
Edge made his first WWE appearance since the draft back in October. He was in the ring speaking about the new opponents he could face now that he was on Raw, when he was interrupted by The Miz. The Miz was also making his first WWE appearance since he was on ABC’s Dancing With The Stars. He was accompanied by Maryse, who was also making her first appearance since mid-April.
Both men had a tension filled back and forth as they looked back regarding their history in the company. Edge then referred to the aforementioned AEW segment when he said:
“You have people on other shows saying your name just to get a cheap reaction. You live rent-free in a lot of heads.”
