Re: AEW DARK begins this TUESDAY

As someone that was in attendance, I can say that 8 man tag was a ton of fun. The women's tag match nearly put me to sleep though.

Re: AEW DARK begins this TUESDAY

They definitely won me over with their debut, so sign me up for double duty of Dark and Dynamite from here on out.

Re: AEW DARK begins this TUESDAY

People saying "lol, you people are complaining about more content."

Yeah, I am.

Why? Because there's already a shit ton of wrestling out there already, on almost every night of the week. There are other non wrestling things people want to watch.

And with this they're basically going to have a 3 hour show a week. You throw in the fact that it's taped and I could learn the results days in advance if I wanted to, and ultimately this is just going to end up being a Velocity or Superstars like show that is going to go to the wayside for me.

And like I've already said before, over exposure is a thing. For me, what I would like to see more is more of a weekly recap show that breaks down the current win/loss records. And on that show, you show highlights from some of these dark matches. To me that would be cool.

But to basically have a 3rd hour where it's like "hey, here's 4 more matches", after a bit I'm just going to lose interest.

You don't have to watch this. You know that right?

It's 2019. You can watch anything at anytime you want. What are you really complaining about?

I know I can watch anything any time when I want. But if a week goes by and I still haven't watched this, guess what, I'm probably not going to want to watch it later. And with having like 4 extra full matches a week with everything else I want to watch or just do in general, I don't see the point in this type of show.

And with everything currently our there including:

*Raw
*SD
*AEW
*NXT
*NXT UK
*205 Live
*ROH
*Impact
*MLW
*NJPW
*WOW
*Etc.

I don't even watch half of that stuff, because I don't have time or the interest. So no, I really don't care for another 4 matches = another 1 hour of content to week to keep track of.

"You know don't have to watch it right." Yes, I do. The point is to compel me to want to watch it. And a show full of taped matches that I can know the results of days in advance which basically gives us 3 hours of content a week with everything currently on, it doesn't compel me to watch it.

Not to mention other factors like over exposure and the fact that there is such a thing as too much wrestling.

Oh and I also gave what in my opinion is a possible alternative. If you're going to disagree with me, good for you. You're entitled to that opinion, as I am to mine. But come at me with something better than "you know you don't have to watch this right?"

Re: AEW DARK begins this TUESDAY

@TD Stinger To be fair to the rest of us - me in this case

I only watch AEW - so, an extra match here or there is very welcome

My NEW FREE game Pop The Cork is now available on Android

It is the BETA version, so please let me know what you think! Thanks!!

Re: AEW DARK begins this TUESDAY

This was something needed and with the right promotion could do some great numbers for a 1 hour web show. This will likely be the platform for talents like Private Party, Darby, Janela, Havoc, Angelico/Evans, etc.

Why the hell should I come at you with anything other than what I said? You're the one that's whining about something that you can easily control. If you don't feel compelled to watch more wresting then DON'T FUCKING WATCH IT. You can keep up with other shows and have a life while watching the wrestling that interests you and if you don't well then make some damn time. If you don't wanna do that then cool. Just don't sit here and complain about "too much wrestling" when you can easily pick and choose what you wanna watch. You're whining about too much choice and it's silly in my mind. It's really not that hard.

You're making a mountain out of a molehill. As with anyone else that whines about this same shit.

Yeah after this weeks smackdown I have a gap wrestling wise so this works for me. I would say recap it on the main show if possible for people who don't have the time or don't want to watch.
