More Promos Needed

Great show again tonight overall, and they're doing a great job of telling stories in the ring, but one criticism is we definitely need more promos, even if they're short and sweet.

These guys need more opportunity to really get their personalities across. We've had four hours of TV and Jericho is the only guy who's really spoken.

Re: More Promos Needed

Agreed, they need to be doing about 2-4 promos per week imo.

Re: More Promos Needed

I think when they get feuds going more. Right now, outside of Cody/Jericho (got one tonight) and Mox/Omega, there is nothing to say.

I think they're going with the idea that the crowd has to want to see them to speak first. Get them over some first, get the crowd seeing what they are about. Then they will be interested in what they have to say.

Agreed. They'll understand this when their viewership drops after the wrestling-heavy episodes they've delivered.

Re: More Promos Needed

The problem is apart from Jericho, Moxley and MJF, most of these dudes in the roster are guys thay can't talk and have no charisma, a bunch of indy small dudes who appareantly according to Khan and Cody, will get big at base of in ring work.

Which is completely false, it will anly draw the same hardcores. AEW needs to figure soon that one part of their show is gold, but the other one is unnecesary indy shit.

Wait. People complain when there’s talking segments all
The time and now you want a bunch of them? This’ll get confusing for them to please everyone

Re: More Promos Needed

I think they need to do more vignettes. 1 in ring promo per show is fine, but I feel like with a lot of these guys, unless you’ve followed their careers you’re not sure what they’re all about and why they do what they do or why they look the way they look.

Re: More Promos Needed

They're doing fine, honestly. No need for constant in ring promos. Do it for big deals and short clips or interviews for the rest.

Like we saw with Mox, Omega, and PAC tonight, you don't need to talk to build an angle.
