WWE and AEW may not be fully at “war” the way WWE was with WCW in the late ’90s, but they are still in direct competition with each other, in a number of different ways. That’s why this scenario that James Ellsworth tweeted yesterday is so fun to look at:

The Jacksonville Jaguars pulled off a blowout 20-16 win over the Tennessee Titans last night (January 7, 2023) at TIAA Bank Field, snatching the AFC South in the process. They will be the fourth seed in the playoffs, and host at least one playoff game.
Why is this right for us?
thank you all @employee Fans, and many thanks to the fans @employee Tonight, a big THANK YOU to Doug Pederson, every player at Jaguars and the entire team and I congratulate you all on tonight’s win + AFC South Championship + Qualifiers!

You’ll notice on Khan’s bio that he lists himself as not only “Owner/CEO/General Manager of AEW” but also “Owner/Football Analytics” with the Jaguars. Tony’s father, Shahid Khan, bought the team in 2012.
This means that it’s at least likely that the Jaguars will win the Super Bowl – not likely, of course, but at least possible – and WWE will be placed in a position to maintain its tradition of scoring free promotional points by sending out a dedicated WWE Championship. The idea is always to catch eyes on the title when the winning team holds their bid and the players/members of the organization carry the title with them.
And who could be the owner of AEW.
You know, if that happens.
