Re: AEW Fight for the Fallen 7/13/19

WWE just keeps making a fool of themselves if I'm being honest. Their ratings are declining, attendance is declining, they wanna try and run a UK Takeover head-to-head with New Japan, and now they're deciding to stream an EVOLVE show against this? The desperation is showing and it's a bad look for them. EVOLVE has basically become NXT lite so it's just gonna be like watching one of those Worlds Collide shows or something anyway.

Anyways to the positives, I like them announcing that Jericho is gonna be there. The show is pretty much 70% sold out already so announcing him will likely push it to being totally sold out in no time. Will he be wrestling though? That's the biggest question I have. A tag match squaring off against Page & a partner would make sense but it really isn't even necessary. Maybe just a promo battle against him would be just fine that ends in a brawl.

Here's a point I don't think I've seen anyone make. They're about to (basically) sell out two shows two weeks apart that are only 90 minutes away from each other. That's very impressive for a start up company. How many people you think are going to both? I know if I lived in that area I'd be all over it.

The dude running this shit is called Tony khan and already said he isnt here to watch the 4 evps ( cody the young buck Kenny) put themselves over if there isnt any clear good reason to it. If you think with the model they are going with, with 4 ppv a year, and a world title they want to push as this prestigious thing, they are going to make people pay 50$ to watch an inter gender match headline a ppv then get a clue.
Also good job predicting their thought process better than themselves, but so far both in character and in real life ( interviews, etc) brandi Rhodes has shown absolutely no desire to be recognized as a great wrestler. Doesnt mean she is gonna wrestle, but the only thing I ever saw her complain about was people not understanding what her job as....a brand officer is.
Information>>>speculations, sorry

I know the common idea is that because wwe is utter shit it means everything else is gonna be but no. And no I dont see aew putting an inter gender match as the main event of a ppv EVER for the simple reason that they are going the old school way of the "men's world title always main event". Simple.
Also the women division being as important as the men's just mean they wont be a fucking joke. Simple and clear fam, just like the men the women are getting a women title and by what Khan said a women tag title in the future. The women division is gonna be built like the men's with the same competitively, and the same diversity in term of roster. ( joshi, American style, English strongstyle etc.
How do I know that? Because instead of sitting there speculating about things I listen to what they say and the explanation of what they say....provided by.....
Themselves
So as you can see I saw your posts and have been trying to figure out a way to respond to these without sounding like a pretentious condescending ass like you come off as in the two posts above me( Please Note: I am saying you come off as, not that you are personally this. Leave the unwarranted Offended and Rage Monster in their cave.) I am not interested in getting into a flame war with you. I was simple expressing my opinion which I am allowed to do, on what I feel has a good chance of occuring. I wasn't saying I knew more than creative like you accused me of doing. I wasn't reporting news from some dirtsheet. Just expressing my opinion.

In a bit of perfect timing, I assume( Is it okay to assume this?) you watched Road to FFF and you saw and heard the Brandi segment? It wasn't totally verbatim to what I expressed but it came off to me according to the gentleman talking that Brandi wasn't just concerned about being only the Chief Brand Officer for AEW. Would you agree?

I choose to take the respectful, diplomatic approach and I hope when you respond back to me you will do the same.

Re: AEW Fight for the Fallen 7/13/19

Not looking forward to seeing Brandi wrestle. Nor should she, especially against someone like Allie (who is solid but isn't a Tessa or Asuka in that regard).

Loved Jake Roberts and Tony Schivonne hyping up the Rhodes v. Young Bucks match. Made it feel 100x as important as it originally did.

Typical WWE pulling classic petty moves because they're shook and panicking about the momentum AEW has at the moment. Hilarious.

Re: AEW Fight for the Fallen 7/13/19

I honestly don't care for any of the 3 matches announced thus far, so this episode of RTFFTF wasn't that appealing to me. Looking forward to what else they announce in the coming week or two.

I would say that they episodes will become more interesting as we get closer to that day and as you know things become really good as we get closer to All Out pay-per-view Bay Bay

If I had to guess Brandi won't be wrestling and instead Allie will get squashed by Awesome Kong

Re: AEW Fight for the Fallen 7/13/19

I donít mind WWE for having a Takeover the same day as All Out, it wonít affect All Out, but if the competitiveness gives me more great wrestling, cool. Thatís the competition I like.

But them airing Evolve live for the 1st time the same night as a charity show, even if in the end it wonít change anything is just being petty to be petty plus itís just something that shouldnít happen. There should be some things you donít touch. I donít mind th competition, the twitter wars, the backstabbing, etc. Thats business.

But again, some things should be off limits.

Don't think labelling it a charity show should make it off-limits for competition. The fact that it's a good cause doesn't take away from the fact that it's also for good publicity and for some social media attention to build popularity. As you said, that's business.

Re: AEW Fight for the Fallen 7/13/19

Cool Dad wrestling isn't something I need in my life, but if he brings the eyes so be it

That tag match is going to be incredible, I can FEEL IT. Jake hyping it was the best. Perfect use of legends.

NXTEVOLVE running the same night as this cool with me because once it fails to beat F4TF, HHH will kick the shit out of Gabe for being the worst, and I live for that shit.

Some die hard WWE fan's will say it was booked for that time, but overlook the fact that the two biggest matches on the card are with WWE signed talent.

As long as AEW puts on a top show, they will outshine them.
