The reality of the situation is on the main roster they are still big guys but they are like 6'3 and when your small guys are 6'0 it's hard to look like a monster.
I thought they were D-Lo Brown type builds and didn't buy them as monsters. It turns out that Rezar is more like a ripped Vader esp knowing now that he has fought MMA professionally.

I do feel however it is showing the hype is just that in a lot of regards. I'm keeping my expectations low.
I think they're exceeding expectations already. They have a charity event in Jacksonville, FL on July 13 in a venue that houses 5k people and have sold 4k tickets during pre-sale while the only promotion for it was through their We Are The Elite series and possibly Twitter.

Donít forget All In last year, but I guess that wasnít an AEW event, but the Double or Nothing show sold out a 17000+ arena in one day.

Re: Wrestling- NVG (SPOILERS inside view at your own risk)

There is absolutely demand for a second major US-based wrestling promotion. WCW didn't die because there weren't enough fans for two companies.

I want AEW to succeed because not only will it give me more good wrestling to watch, but its success will force Vince to be creative in a way he hasn't been since the last time he faced real competition.

Doing well with 3 shows spaced way the hell apart and having a weekly TV show and national touring brand couldn't be more different.

Wrestling ratings are nowhere near back then. There also has been a second US company the entire time. TNA did okay early on.

I wouldn't call AEW the XFL as their big shows instantly sell out. It's just gonna basically kill off and replace TNA/ROH instead of actually going against WWE though. AEW could easily survive as for them the biggest hurdle is TV taping costs when they start those. If it replaces WWE, it's because WWE ratings went even more to ****; there's a lot less casual fans nowadays.

Every WWE jobber from the attitude era is way more known by a lot than everyone but Jericho in AEW is their biggest problem atm. Nobody knows who Omega is outside of hardcore fans.

Obviously this is true but it does prove there's enough of a market for their product. They probably beat TNA right now and they're still going on with a weekly show (which is on twitch, lol but the alternative is some channel nobody gets so...).

They're going to instantly beat ROH too which was bought by Sinclair Broadcasting in June or July of 2011. No coincidence that I (and lots of other fans) ditched ROH in mid-2011 either. The product turned to **** because of the change of ownership and new way of distributing the product.

I have some optimism that having Jericho and snatching a couple of WWE names will attract some and maybe they stay for Omega, TYB's. I do hope Cody retires to run things somehow. I find him and his wife unbearable to watch.
