Of course there are WWE stans who only want WWE to be successful and not deal with competition threatening that and people who say they are wrestling fans but do nothing but shit all over everything about wrestling because they have been so jaded that they want to nit pick at every single thing so you are just as miserable as they are.
It certainly was a big deal and monumental event, not denying that. The thing is though when you make things like numbers which will fluctuate such a talking point, you're ensuring they'll be a talking point when they're not so impressive.

And the thing is the folk doing most of the harsh criticism aren't WWE fans either. The majority of the folk this section seem to dislike talk the exact same shit in the WWE section, but nobody cares their because shitting on WWE deserved or undeserved is seen as acceptable. A lot of the harsher critics of AEW and hate watchers have made it clear that a lot of their problems with AEW is it's too similar to WWE in match style and lack of story's they like. But folk miss that.

K. You've had your say.

We'll take the 5,000 excited fans that don't chant WHAT. We're satisfied with that.

Is it clear now? Or is 'fair' defined as making the same point over and over and over again?

Re: AEW Tarp-amite is in Full Effect Now

A 10 month old company not selling out an entire arena is less of a bad look than the 67 year old near monopoly company not selling out (multiple) arenas.

Tell me OP, oh wait I put you on ignore. Tell me when WWE had a crowd as hot as the one on Wednesday. It's been a long time.
you mean to tell me they were going to sellout every single arenas?!
And lol at the wwe comparison, it's like comparing Starbucks to my 6 weeks old coffee shop. Some E drones are really butthurt that their little shiny company get criticised for drawing shit despite 20 years of monopoly

Its not clear, clearly. Because people such as yourself cant look past someone saying something remotely negative about AEW.

I'm not even taking a shot at AEW here. I even said in my original post that there's valid reasons to AEW needing tarp; its new and Pro Wrestling is dead.

So again, and bolded and underlined. Its fair to treat them the same and level the same critiques at them instead of ignoring when the smark favourite has the same issue as others do.

Sure you were here for a civil discussion with a thread title like that.

Nick Jackson already spoke about how they were prepared for this in one of the interviews leading into the premiere. They always expected the sales to take a hit at some point after all the initial sellouts. And honestly, that's just the state of the business right now. Plus they're a new product.

The fact that the NC crowd was still the hottest they've been for a wrestling show in recent memory makes up for it though.

Re: AEW TV Ratings, PPV Buys & Ticket Sales Thread: LET'S GO CRAZY! LET'S GET NUTS!

In hindsight they probably needed like half a dozen more legit stars. If they had this roster + Punk, Bryan, Styles, Osprey, Okada then they'd be the best promotion in the world.

But now WWE's 5 year deals and the other promotions not cooperating is hurting everyone immensely.

Re: AEW TV Ratings, PPV Buys & Ticket Sales Thread: LET'S GO CRAZY! LET'S GET NUTS!

The thought process and habits of the AEW fanbase is pretty clear by now.

They will watch everything Jon Moxley does on TV, they will watch most of the things Jericho does on TV, and they will check out Jon Moxley videos on YouTube. That's it. Beyond that, no one gives a shit about anything. Guys like Cody, Omega, Page, Pac, Darby Allin, etc., are drawing zero interest, and no one has got any time for them.

Re: AEW Tarp-amite is in Full Effect Now

No. That tweet doesn't not deserve attention and does not bring up a valid point. There is no 'fair is fair' argument because the scale both promotions are being graded on isn't fair to begin with.

WWE shows suck. The people that pay to attend don't even give a shit and mostly play on their phones or are silent during nearly the entire show, barring a few moments for Superstars or segments. Not the case for AEW, everyone paying to see the show want's to be there and they are loud and active the whole time.
