All Elite Wrestling has a rabid fanbase following and supporting their every move. Think Trump supporters but with way more time on their hands. However, old time wrestling haven’t bought in to the trampoline jumping, joke gimmick, death match indie wrestlers of this new generation. And they let their thoughts known on social media.
However, AEW owner, Tony Khan believes that a lot of the anti AEW sentiments are bots. “An independent study has confirmed that much of the staunch anti-AEW online community aren’t real individuals,” Khan tweeted on his personal account. “It’s a staff running thousands of accounts [plus] an army of bots to signal boost them. Look closely, these aren’t real people. Who’d pay for such a wildly expensive thing?”
“Research this one yourselves. You internet detectives thrive in these situations,” Khan continued, before promoting the Yuta/Moxley match for Friday’s Rampage card. He then added, “Ever wonder why so much of the activity of these accounts is retweets and replies? Like who actually has 80% of their activity as [straight-up] retweets?”
It’s rumored that WWE could be doing a smear campaign against AEW using spambots but it’s unlikely.
Still, it hasn’t stopped one WWE star from commenting on Khan’s tweet.
WWE’s Becky Lynch has since reacted to Khan’s comments with a theory of her own, and Big Time Becks is clearly having some fun with it all, saying that he also run a study and confirmed that anti-Becky booers aren’t real people.
Lynch wrote on Twitter “An independent study confirmed that much of the staunch anti – Becky in arena booers aren’t real individuals, it’s a staff running thousands of A.I. – an army of bots! Look closely, these aren’t real people. Who’d pay for such a “wildly” expensive thing?” Lynch then shared a GIF of Ronda Rousey to cap it all off.
