“You know that’s the ultimate goal. I mean we’re trying to be an alternative. Something very different. So WWE, they have their 2k license — 2k franchise — and it’s great and a lot of people have fun with it. You know I recently worked on the New Japan Fire Pro Wrestling and I love the Fire Pro Wrestling franchise, I don’t know if you’ve played it or not, it’s great.”
“What I’m trying to do is restore an old franchise. I want people to have fun with wrestling games like they used to do when I used to play wrestling games in high school.”

AEW might have a video game in their future, but that will probably be a project for the future. However, with the momentum they have right now you never know how fast they might reach that point in the company’s evolution.
