I donít know ó Sandow turned out to be surprisingly bad when everybody thought he just needed to be able to spread his wings. Spears at least had a decent run in NXT before moving up to that black hole known as the main roster. I think thereís a lot more potential there. Breakout star, probably not, but good, solid midcarder I think is a real possibility. Or he could majorly flop ó weíll all find out soon enough.

Re: AEW Pulling Shawn Spears From Indy Shows

Sandow had no desire for wrestling left in him and the only reason he did TNA to have an income while chasing the acting business. It was obvious from day one. You can't compare both guys and their mentalities.

Sandow had good runs as the intellectual savior and as Mizdow. I just don't see anything special in him that makes me think he'll ever be a worthwhile player even as a midcarder. He's not awful at anything, but he's not good at anything either. He's just decent. To me I feel his fandom and the good will is just sympathy that he's had a pretty much worthless (in the grand scheme of things) career.

I mean even in NXT what were his standout moments? I don't remember ever seeing "oh you got to see that Tye match/promo". Even with the 10 thing was it a case of that being a really good character, or folk just glad he found fucking something.

I gotta plead ignorance on this one ó Iíve never seen NXT, Iím only going by what Iíve heard. I havenít seen anything good or bad of the guy, so Iím kinda starting off with a clean slate on him. Whatever he did or didnít do in WWE doesnít count, because they ruin 99% of their talent. Enough people have said his work in NXT was decent, so thatís enough to give me hope that heís not a total charisma vacuum. But Iím leaving room for the possibility that heís another Sandow, and hopefully the AEW braintrust will know when the experiment is a success or a failure.

Ince the weekly show starts noone should be allowed to work anywhere else unless they have a working partnership to exchange talent.

It creates more importance that way

While they do ruin some and don't utilize others to the fullest I don't think he's one of them. He's just really meh. I think once the Cody thing is over he's going to fall off.

Yeah, I'm not super high on him either tbh. I didn't even want AEW to sign him lol, I figured he was Impact-bound if anything. That said, I'll give him a chance and see what he can do in the build and match against Cody.

I expect the Cody match to be killer, Cody is putting on great Big matches as of late. But after that I don't really expect much of him. I could be wrong and he kills it, but I just can't imagine him breaking out this late in his career. Only person I can think of that really broke out this late in their career is Mark Henry.

Re: AEW Pulling Shawn Spears From Indy Shows

I'd give Shawn Spears a fighting chance here, AEW has had only a few shows so they are still building their way to their weekly TV. Even though he hasn't done a lot, I do think he's being used right at least.


...Beware of he who would deny you access to information, for in his heart he dreams himself your master.

That's delusional.

If Corbin was in AEW right now people like you would be drooling over him. Corbin shows more personality with a smirk than Spears has shown doing anything in his entire career.
