This is 100% correct. It's weird to hear it coming from Disco Inferno, but the guy actually has an appreciation for the fundamental fight psychology of what makes wrestling work. But yeah, I think AEW is going to get a huge shock when people actually give AEW a chance, but then what they get is an inconsistent, idiosyncratic product that does its best to contradict the tone it sets with its heavyweight personalities (of which there are some great examples -- Jericho, MJF, Page, Cody, Dustin and even Shawn Spears).

He fill the same type of role
And this is exactly the problem. It sucked when WWE did it. Why is AEW trying to copy WWE? It's fun for people who still follow WWE, because they are hungry for anything else, but when they realize it is more of the same, it's going to cost AEW. Especially out the gate.

We don't know that he is not going to be a jobber, but you don't go out of your way to "hire" jobbers. This would be like starting a boxing promotion and hiring a fighter that you openly admit is a tin can because they have no developed muscles. Put them in there with a credible fighter and you've got believability problems. But it also pollutes the psychology of your card.

If you want jobbers, go and look at the indies and see who is a little green but in pretty good shape. Give a call to fucking D'Lo Brown or Al Snow. I'm sure Lance Storm has a few students that are smooth as silk and could use a little work. You don't need to advertise them or sign them to full-time deals. They can show up, look the part, get their ass kicked and the story told is that the wrestler you are pushing beat up someone that looks like they could at least win a bar fight.

This sort of make believe wrestling only appeals to a niche that still fucking watches. I don't know why people don't get this. Wrestling isn't cool just because you like it and a new billion dollar promotion has come along. You've got reel those lapsed fans in, and you're not going to do so by presenting a product that insults their intelligence because it makes no fucking sense.

Marko Stunt only makes sense as a hire to be backstage personnel, provided he has some relevant skill, or perhaps as an announcer if he could talk. A spoilt rich brat manager? Fine. I don't even buy him fighting people his own weight, because I think fighters that size are usually fucking cut and look like they could punch through glass. Marko Stunt doesn't really project that aesthetic in how he looks or how he carries himself as a performer.

Re: Marko Stunt has officially signed with AEW

^Yuck. Stunt forced into this act greatly detracts from it. Seems they want to justify signing Stunt by having a role for him so they stick him in with JB/Luchasaurus.

I know I'm a broken record, but if you wanted to sign the runt, just put him with The Dark Order. Put him under a creeper mask and Evil Uno and Grayson could have used him as a weapon during their matches. Imagine a live "foreign object" to help the heels cheat. It would be unique. Rather than use a chair, or a kendo stick or a megaphone or a tennis racquet they could use a "Marko". He runs in out of the crowd when the ref is distracted and Uno or Grayson grab him and hit their opponents with him, and then Marko runs out. Sort of like those live furniture parties like rich folks have. Marko would never initiate offense himself and never fight back if the Dark Order opponent ever got hold of him. He's basically a live inanimate object for Uno/Grayson to use.

Have him wear a crash helmet over his creeper mask, or as part of it. That could be the part Uno/Grayson use to attack their opponents. Use Stunt as a battering ram, a dart, or swing Marko using the helmet as a mace/melee weapon ball.

I fully expect him to turn on them and join the Dark Order as a rabid pet actually

Re: Marko Stunt has officially signed with AEW

I hope Kevin Nash is signed by AEW, not as a wrestler. As a manager or something and he jackknifes this little punk through the god damn ring ALA Rey Mysterio 1997.
