WWE obviously has their eye on AEW. Triple H’s comments during the WWE Hall Of Fame should further prove that fact. Now that WrestleMania is out of the way the next big event for a lot of fans is AEW’s Double Or Nothing event in May, but WWE seemed to have combated this with a change of their own.

Dave Meltzer mentioned during Wrestling Observer Radio how WWE moving Money In The Bank to May might have been a sign that the company is looking to compete with AEW in a manner of speaking to take some of the attention off of the Double Or Nothing event.

“They moved Money In The Bank up this year though for that reason — is it for that reason? To — you know, who knows? I think it probably was you know Money In The Bank is a stronger show so why would you do that change. Because coming right out of WrestleMania they usually go in there with that one month where they’re like, ‘Well we don’t wanna do a big pay-per-view so June’s a better time for that, but yeah they’re gonna go with Money In The Bank in May.”

Double Or Nothing is on May 25th and Money In The Bank is scheduled for May 19th. This might not be a coincidence because WWE has historically held the big event in June and July since the its conception in 2010. So there may very well be some fire to that smoke.
