Re: AEW - All Elite Wrestling (The Elite/Jericho/Ross/Khan) - New Promotion?
Me personally I just can't really buy into when wrestlers say "it's not about booking, it's about being able to be free artistically". Because really most of the guys who tote that also happen to be top of the cards they're on. Wrestling for the artistic expression sounds like stuff you say when you're a top guy getting top guy money lol. I don't think Omega and The Bucks would be all on the "I just care apart freedom of expression" if they were low carders barely getting a shot.
Well if you're referring to The Elite, then yes you have a point. But I watch other promotions whether it be NJPW or somewhere else and I see a lot of guys who while they're not necessarily the top of the food chain, they still have a story around them and room to grow.
Is it all perfect? Of course not, I'm not trying to paint that picture. But I still think that most guys in wrestling want to make the money and be satisfied creatively.
If you can get both in WWE, good on ya. But if this thing gets off the ground, I think there could be a few people who would take less money to go somewhere, no matter their spot on the card, and feel like a big part of the show if it meant more creative freedom and maybe less dates. Again, IF this thing gets off the ground.
