While the AEW is used to making references to WWE, McMahon’s company had previously taken the decision not to accept his new rival, if we exclude the remark of Triple H during the Hall of Fame ceremony. Last night at Survivor Series, however, WWE made a reference to the AEW on Twitter.
On the social network, WWE posted an image of Dominic, son of Rey Mysterio, with a towel in his hand. The Twitter account was careful to accompany this with the following message: “lose by throwing a towel? Not WWE.” This is a direct reference to Full Gear who saw Cody lose to Chris Jericho after Maxwell Jacob Friedman threw the towel to stop the match.
