Austin was a WCW reject, not comparing Spears to Austin just saying this is a dumb take. You have no idea really what SS can be like unleashed. And I hate to break this to you but Cody is one of the biggest stars in all of wrestling today and will probably make Spears (who WWE failed to use almost at all) relevant in this feud for the rest of his career.

Going by internet reaction people barely even refers to the dude as tye dillinger anymore.
People are underestimating the ability of aew to rebrand their guys. In not even a month, no one will remember tye dillinger and everyone will remember his story and history with cody. Mark my words!

Re: AEW Pulling Shawn Spears From Indy Shows

I think people forget Spears started as a heel. He looks like a heel

The 10 gimmick was not the 10 chant the NXT smark crowd turned it into

It was of a disgruntled guy, that claimed he was actually the Perfect 10, and wasn’t given the opportunity

It is a dick gimmick, and he’s going to play it like one

That's correct. After the situation got out on social media he was suddenly cleared after days of saying he wasn't. For the record, I'm a big fan of the guy and have been for a while. I just thought this situation wasn't up to what AEW had been saying they are about

Shawn Spears is way better than someone like Corbin who had one of the most screen time on RAW for over a year now despite being mediocre.

Cody Rhodes > the world

Another thing is, people tend to gravitate towards AEW because they are supposed to be different and do things differently. Well so far Cody's been pushing himself and his buddies and putting them on the spotlight, the same thing that people bashed the HHH and the McMahons for.

But ultimately, pushing this dude is a mistake because he's just not good enough period.
There are two ways to view this, your way of thinking, or the other in that they push Spears(not to be the top guy, but give him a chance), and Spears thrives and it makes WWE look even more retarded.

Either way of thinking isn't necessarily bad, but I don't think you can say one is wrong vs the other.

I hope that’s the case. But I know Cody is one of their top guys and they’ve inserted this hack in a program with Cody right away. Hopefully they don’t just push the guy straight to their main event scene. If anything let him work his way up the card and see if the fans like the dude or not before pushing him.

Spears is already being used better than WWE used him.

Re: AEW Pulling Shawn Spears From Indy Shows

Smart move given Evolve is with WWE. But Spears is going to be the next Sandow once the "he's free from restraints" newness has worn off. Dudes late 30s hes not about to be some break out star or great midcarder.
