When All Elite Wrestling first presented Double or Nothing and Dean Ambrose made the switch over to AEW, many fans believed that AEW could be WWE's biggest competition to date. With that stated, over the past few months this seems to have cooled off and WWE has come to the realization that All Elite Wrestling can be beaten.

With a wildly successful Survivor Series weekend and the fact that NXT has been able to beat AEW in the ratings in recent weeks, WWE may not have much to fear with regard to their current rival.

It's been former WWE stars like Cody Rhodes and Chris Jericho who have been forced to make references to WWE in recent weeks, while WWE hasn't mentioned AEW once. Vince McMahon's company is aware that firing shots at their competition will only make fans change the channel to see the opposing side's reaction.

AEW has been giving WWE more viewers because they keep referencing the company, so more than two months after the Wednesday Night Wars began, it appears that WWE has decided that they can handle their newest competition.
