Re: All Elite Wrestling Discussion Thread

ThEy CaNt Do TuEsDaYs BeCaUsE oF tHe NbA, omg enough lmao. It's fine to speculate but people are spitting out things that they think are sure fire things. You realize things can always be changed around right? Perhaps NBA wishes to air on a different day or different time. Perhaps they can air West Coast games that start at 10:30 EST, so that AEW can have the 8-10 slot. Perhaps AEW airs on a different day entirely. It's fine to speculate but stop acting like some of you guys know everything for a fact already.

Re: All Elite Wrestling Discussion Thread

I just want to point out that I think people are over-reacting about it being sport-centric. AEW is having DON, right? Well, DON has STORYLINES leading up to this. Look at BTE. Hangman in full gear, The Librarian, MICHAEL NAKAZAWA, SCU vs Cima, Kenny Vs. Jericho, Cody/Dustin, Best Friends being pissed at the Bucks...you still will have your feuds, your stories, your comedy and your characters. They just won't detract from the in-ring action as much. THAT is a good thing. You wouldn't want the show to be filled with what happens in BTE the whole program.

UGH. Of course Bruce Blitz's cynical ass has to tell us why this is gonna fail just so he can act superior to the rest of us. I HATE ratings marks.
Y.2.J and The Raw Smackdown like this.

Re: All Elite Wrestling Discussion Thread

To be fair, they probably have no idea what date they're doing their show on.

The fact they confirmed TNT yet refused to name a date for their show tells us that.

If its going to be Tuesday, which is likely due to their copyrighting, then maybe they are currently in discussion with the NBA about what's going to happen etc.

Who knows?

Not long to wait though.

Re: All Elite Wrestling Discussion Thread

I guess the mod team aren't as eager to give AEW it's forum as I thought. Apologies to @Platt ;

Honestly I don't get what the big deal is about giving them their own forum. They're clearly bigger than Impact already ever was considering they were on Spike at their peak and AEW is on TNT. We have like 8 or so matches that can each get their own thread like they do on WWE PPVs. We're bound to get a lot of discussions after DON, and there's 2 more events each month after.

It's like WF is going to lose money by giving AEW their own section.

Realistically they probably want to wait til Double Or Nothing, but we haven't exactly got an answer as to whether or not this is something they wanna do yet.

I think its absolutely ridiculous. But whatever. They can moderate a 1000 post thread.

@Platt

I think its childish how the mods are acting though in regards to AEW.....finally we have something new to discuss and talk about and fans be excited. As the leadership (mods) of this fan network, you would think they would fucking care and want to make this the best platform to discuss wrestling on. The members want a sub section. All we are asking is a sub forum. Just like impact has.

Re: All Elite Wrestling Discussion Thread

If AEW don't run a show called HOG WILD ON THE ROAD LIVE AT STURGIS, then I can't watch this.

Really looking forward to seeing how the Bucks plan to showcase Tag Team wrestling. I expect a tag tournament for the belts at ALL IN 2. And then from there a lot more tag wrestling on TV every week

Jamie Kellner was a mole.

WWE is still profiting to this day from the WCW library and nWo t-shirt sales.
Bischoff sold WCW’s distribution rights from under them. Streaming was not a thing in 2001.

Jamie Kellner was not a mole. There is talk that someone else was, but it wasn’t Kellner.

At that point, Turner just wanted to rinse their hands of WCW, its expenses, its lawsuits, its losses, its PR nightmares and Eric Bischoff. They didn’t want to give them TV, but they could have still bought it. Didn’t want to without TV, which they weren’t getting, because they sucked.

Could Turner have sold it for more without airing it on TV? Maybe. When Vince tried to float WCW later that year, no one wanted it even under WWF management. I think it’s a bit overstated what people were willing to pay for things like the wrestling rings, incomplete sets and talent contracts.

So at one point, Time Warner definitely did not want to be associated with wrestling. That's almost 20 years ago though, I'm sure none of those execs are even around anymore.
“According to Eric Bischoff...” is a dangerous way to start a sentence. They were in the position that Turner wanted to cut bait because Bischoff had run things into the ground. Bischoff was not “saving” WCW.

Turner not wanting anything to do with WCW and Eric Bischoff is not synonymous to them not wanting anything to do with wrestling. The two aren’t mutually exclusive either. But you cannot leave out what a nightmare WCW was from 1998 onwards.

TNT are covering production costs. That could be upwards of $40,000,000 a year. That’s not nothing.

I don't know why it's such an issue to let create our own section to make threads etc. There's more than enough things to talk about, make threads about , etc. This thread is in the 600s and is active every single day. I was also under the impression that we'd be getting a sub after the tv deal was announced.

GIVE US WHAT WE WANT WF ADMINS. *insert batista gif*

But seriously what the hell mods?!
