Re: The AEW Thread

I'm glad AEW is a thing and hope it succeeds. Not sure how easy it'll be to follow it for people without cable.

WWE is pretty simple in that regard because for $10/month you can just watch all the PPVs, and nothing ever happens on the weekly shows anyway.

That said, I think WWE's main fault is they put out far too much content, and monthly PPVs are a part of that problem.

I'm curious to see how AEW works out.

Re: The AEW Thread

Weekly show should be easier to watch for cord cutters. TBS/TNT apps have live streaming.

Re: The AEW Thread

The weekly show is kind of my concern with AEW. They've said they don't want writers and are going for a sports-like feel, but I'm not convinced that can make for an entertaining TV show every week.

Does it require a log in? I assume not, I suppose.

Jericho looks like he hasn't seen the inside of a gym for months, that baggy leather jacket is fooling no-one mate.



Imagine giving an out of shape 48 year old the biggest contract of his career. His relative longevity largely stems from frequent, lengthy sabbaticals. Making him the centrepiece of your show (rather than an irregular special attraction) on a 3 year contract is crazy. Over-exposure of fat, washed up Jericho will get real old, real fast.

They also just signed 70 year old Earl Hebner to the roster.



This company is going to fail, and fail hard.

It does. Which means it isnt really a cord cutters dream. Apps are great and all, but when you have to log into your service provider, whats the point?

Re: The AEW Thread

Thanks for the hu for this event.

Chuck Taylor's great. Guy should've had a major comedy and serious role in WWE. One of my favorites to watch because he's always entertaining.

Since I'm bored here's a story: one of my favorite Chucky T memories is him vs. Trent in PWG. Everyone expected a comedy match. Instead they came out using nut shots, chairs, tables, tacks, barbwire, and had lots of juice. It was incredible for a tag team with the name of "Best Friends".

That SSP was incredible. Guy was floating. No hyperbole, possibly the best one ever.

Re: The AEW Thread

I have a very very minor nitpick about AEW already. They're making Omega/TYBs on screen owner people. We've had this in WWE for 20+ years now. I'd have liked to see this kind of thing just stay far far away. Even having Cody in his suit for his match graphic. I know you guys are proud but ****, I don't care that you run the company.

Anyways, excited to see the show and that comedy hardcore match in the preshow was 5* as far as comedy matches go.

Re: The AEW Thread

The hardcore match reminded me of those holiday food fight matches WWE puts on. I don't think it's what AEW should be doing.

At least this was after the match instead of during. That's a gross cut.

Exclamation Re: The AEW Thread

I am not yet swayed on The Mox. Still sucks. Maybe Kenny can carry him to a 3 star match in August.

Overall the show wasn't great but the atmosphere not being WWE (production, announcers, set, etc) made it feel a lot better than a WWE ppv.

Everybody knows who started AEW. They can't really ignore it on air.

Everybody knows that wrestling is a work too, but it's very rarely correct to even implicitly acknowledge it on-screen.

Re: The AEW Thread

Aside from the tag match and Omega/Cima, not to interested. I had no idea that Brandi was actually a wrestler.

Re: The AEW Thread

Rhodes vs. Bucks should be pretty good. Rest of the card is meh for me although SCU vs. Lucha Bros could be good. The six man and the three-way tag might be fun. Page-Sabian and Omega-CIMA are hurt by knowing 100 percent what the outcomes will be.

Re: The AEW Thread

I haven't seen many Brandi matches. Curious to see how good she has gotten.

MJF is amazing and he makes any match watchable.

And I'm 100% on the Luchasaurus bandwagon. He's my pick for the AEW wrestler that the fans will unexpectedly make a star.

Re: The AEW Thread

I agree with the above. I'm quite looking forward to it. Bar the Brandi bit, I am very worried she's going to be unironic Steph 2.0 and she knows herself she isn't a wrestler on that same level.
