WWE and AEW Headline the Most Newsworthy Week in American Wrestling in Two DecadesPhotos by AEW / Lee South TV Features aew
Last week was perhaps the most historic week for pro wrestling in North America since WCW went out of business in 2001. Between AEW’s premiere on TNT, WWE’s debut on Fox, a catastrophically received WWE pay-per-view, the turmoil embroiling Mexico’s CMLL, Ring of Honor’s new World champion, and the return of the NWA, the last 10 days in wrestling have been unusually turbulent and newsworthy. Paste’s senior editor (and resident wrestling fan) Garrett Martin discusses the major stories from last week in the first of an occasional video series covering the wrestling industry.
