Re: AEW is literally committing late WCW sins every show

If your story is going to be a heel stable with the leader holding the top belt saying he's taking over the promotion, you need to establish the stable as a threat because of the numbers game and dirty tactics. That involves lots of run-ins and beatdowns and wild brawls at the beginning anyway

There has been an AEWakening... have you felt it?

The mark wars have begun again

DAMN THAT TRACK IS HOT

THAT'S GOTTA BE KANE (IS BACK) (AGAIN)

RIP Robin

Khan is a big ECW mark. The lights going out, chaoctic finishes, all ECW staples. I dig it. Its over the top, but over the top is good. Its pro wrestling.

Re: AEW is literally committing late WCW sins every show

People are drawing these hard WCW/AEW comparisons, I've been guilty of it as well, but honestly I think what AEW are trying to do is recapture the vibe of the Monday Night Wars. Yeah, WCW had these kind of segments, but so did WWE in the late 90s.

People are so accustomed to nothing happening for 3 hours of wrestling, that when you have a busy segment like that, it's "too much". It's not just random chaos. They're advancing stories through the insanity. Inner Circle, MJF/Cody and Jericho vs. Darby was all built through that.

Re: AEW is literally committing late WCW sins every show

Jericho was in the ME with one of his henchmen and another of his was showcasing his force on the outside doing his job correctly allowing the top title holder as a heel to win.

Jericho also sold the crap out his whole team in his promo.

Private party's gear fits their overly party lifestlye gimmick very well.

the interference and extended conflict, do you mean post match brawls? Because 2 big factions are feuding atm so expect that.

and MJF literally turned his back on InnerCircle for how long? I mean shit, I would be shocked if commentary didn't say something like that.

and this is literally their second weekly show. there's still a lot to flesh out. I'm sure there's people who are anti WWE even if they don't watch AEW. WWE just sucks.

WWE made me do a complete 180 after praising SDL for weeks, with just 1 show. lol

The problem is this is happening everywhere and Jericho just spoke for all of them. I feel like having stronger showings and just getting heat during matches and doing interviews is better than having Jericho give them a rub. It's not going to go anywhere if they aren't going to stand out on their own merits. I'm not trying to fantasy book, it's just been done this way a million times.

It's not too much, it just doesn't need to happen after every match. Like the tag match tonight, Bea and Brit was more after match shenanigans. Probably not necessary. I also don't understand the advancement of Jericho vs Darby, because Jericho has to face Cody first. It's completely illogical.

I do understand trying to catch that vibe, but it's no longer 1999. I don't see these two as competitors, and honestly I thought NXT blew AEW out of the water this week.

Re: AEW is literally committing late WCW sins every show

People always spam "this is just like late WCW" and always have wildly different symptoms they ascribe to it.

The reason AEW is nothing like "late WCW" is that The Bucks booked a lesser known tag team over them in the first match of a tag-team tournament.

Re: AEW is literally committing late WCW sins every show

Jericho is facing Darby next week.

There was a lot of build in that final segment, lots of different angles getting set up.

And? It was just fun.

I didn't defend anything. I'm laughing at the guy who insists on pissing into the wind.
