Men's Rights Activist. I think it'd be shitty to blacklist him from the company because of that. He's said some sexist things about women's wrestling in the past but unless he's mistreating people who cares? It's not like he's booking the show so he has no power over them. Jericho has said more bigoted things as have other wrestlers who'd they'd happily accept.

Same for wwe , putting your show right next to another to kill their hype could end up killing YOUR hype. And the fact that they put their show right after double or nothing is problematic because if money in the bank doesn't deliver on the same level as double or nothing , it will get trashed on and the comparisons will be absolutely clear. They putting themselves in a veryyyy bad position.
MITB is the week before DoN, not after.

TNA had some of the most recognizable faces in wrestling at that time though like Sting, Kurt Angle , Christian and The Dudley's . The All In Pre-Show didn't quite reach 200k viewers on a good network and the total combined buyrate of tradition and streaming service was around 50k. The only comparable numbers I could find was ROH's Best in the World which drew over 12k in 2014 for just traditional PPV. NJPW World subscriber numbers in 2018 was 100k with 40k of those being outside of Japan. I have no idea where AEW's numbers are going to be, but 1 million is a huge ask for a consistent number. You have to remember, a one off show is "easier" to do than having to keep bringing people back every week and theoretically every couple month for a PPV. It also depends on what their model is even going to be as well.
yes, anyone quoting TNA numbers and especially WCW numbers, needs to remember TV and cable tv have changed a lot since that time, less people are watching TV live. More people DVR, or watch through other means, and many don't have cable anymore, especially younger people. Plus total viewers is not even the number that is important business wise, they can get 4 million viewers and be a dud ratings wise if it's all a bunch of old people. So even if they do less than 1 million its not a bad thing if the demo is good. That's why WWE is still top 5 most weeks even though lots of shows get bigger total viewers. Tosh.0 for instance was top 10 last week with just 600k viewers, but it skews young so it got a .3 in the demo. That's the number to watch, they will be very successful if they can get a 0.3-.5 demo in this cable tv environment. that will put them in line with other popular primetime cable shows.

AEW doesn't need TJP.

They already have the role of "Hipster Douchebag" filled by Sammy Guevara.

Sammy is discount TJ in every where possible. Well, not in the face because Sammy has a MUCH more punchable face. But I'd rather TJ

Ah, but you see because of that punchable face, Sammy has even far greater douchbag potential than even TJP.

But, TJP is a veteran douchebag hipster (and fairly underrated as a talent IMO). And Sammy is a rookie douchebag hipster (while still developing as an overall wrestler from what I've seen). Perhaps put them in a tag team so Sammy may go under the learning tree.
