Re: AEW is literally committing late WCW sins every show

TBH, I don't have enough time to watch the shows. In addition, I've never watched WCW shows. Well, the good side of this is there are two more options to watch: MLW and NWA.

I'm so interested in MLW due to its fighters' division. Maybe I'll watch it on Mondays.

By another side, I've watched NWA Powerrr Premiere twice and really Billy and Dave achieved to catch the 70's and 80's wrestling essence. I'll watch it each Tuesday.

Re: AEW is literally committing late WCW sins every show

One thing that differs between AEW and late term WCW is that the run-ins are occurring after the match instead of influencing the finish (or lack thereof)

Re-using the same techniques such as interference and only brawls after a match is. The lights going out before every debut is. The commentators having to act like Allin has a chance against Jericho is. Rushing pushes is. The referees discretion crap is. The terrible outfits half of the roster is. People are pointing out legitimate flaws and I have seen every single one of them shut down on here with bullshit excuses or cries of "troll" from the same few people who just want to get noticed by Kenny Omega on the internet.
Brawls and interference are long term wrestling tropes. Also why would the commentary say someone has no chance going into a title match? What a dumb thing to say. I agree that the lights going out has been overused

Calling brawls and interference wcw 2000 is just wrong. Do I think OP is a troll? Nah. If you want wcw 2000 go watch the main event for hell in a cell.

That’s not all people say. There are valid criticisms and anyone who brings them up without throat clearing gets insulted for it.

There is lots of stuff that doesn’t make sense. The referees aren’t calling for DQs when they should be. Talent are exposing how they rig everything during their press conferences. That is synonymous to Russo’s stuff.

It is boring for some people. That is subjective. I get honest-to-god bored whenever I see the same set-ups for dives and guys just standing there like geeks to catch them. Just like a find Michael Bay movies boring. Give me some fucking substance.

And there are lots of geeks. Not everyone is a geek, but you’ve got Joey Janela, Orange Cassidy, Marko Stunt and Jimmy Havoc on the roster. That’s off-putting for a lot of people. It’s not trolling to be put off by a product that annoys you for legitimate reasons.

Those were very good points raised by Cult03 actually.

It’s not the brawling, it’s the repetition of angles (which isn’t at overkill just yet) and the context of them.

I generally hate the lights out technique. It at least makes sense for Cody because he has an in to production.

It’s not dumb to point out that Jericho vs. Allin is a mismatch. Commentators used to be able to call things objectively and with authenticity. It’s the abstract and phoney cliffhanger hype that I think Cult is referencing. “Who’s going to win this match between Hogan and Billy Kidman?!” that type of shit. Not everything needs fake announcer voice.

The referee stuff is right on the money.

I don’t know what the fuck Hell in a Cell was. I mean, ridiculous bullshit in general is pretty WCW. But no one was absolving WWE. It’s possible to say both were shit.

If something works, it works.

The Golden Age of Pro Wrestling that we all loved was full of “repetitive” things.

Sting, nWo, Stone Cold, The Rock, DX, Undertaker, Goldberg, etc...
