Already losing interest due to ridiculous match length

Tired of seeing 15 minute Buck matches on free TV every week.

Im tired of seeing way overdrawn out matches that should only take 5 or 6 minutes such as the Hangman/Sabian match from Fight for the Fallen.

I get that they're trying to make it seem like everybody is a threat to win but in a sport where you can determine the outcomes and choose to build who you want....this isnt necessary.

I see no point in buying the ppv's ff all the matches are gonna be 20 minute long match of the year contenders. It lowers the value of big matches when everybody is killing themselves every match which I respect.....but it isnt necessary. By the third match, no matter how entertaining the show is I start debating turning the channel because all of these long matches require constant focus and that long focus gets tiring after a while and once you start taking your focus off the show a good ahow can feel like a mediocre show.


I like most of everything they're doing so far but this is a big issue for me. I thought the first show had long matches because it was a showcase of their talent on their first show....2nd shows been the exact same thing and this had been an issue on their ppv's too where they actually ran out of time for the show and had to rush the ending at fight for the fallen.

They've also already hotshotted and used up matches that could have been long fueds already. Anybody interested in seengn Y2J vs Hangman anytime soon again?

And yet was still comfortably one of the biggest draws in the history of the business...

There's more to professional wrestling than work rate and technical wrestling skills, and geeks flipping around doing gymnastics for 20 minutes.

15 minutes isn't long at all.

Re: Already losing interest due to ridiculous match length

There have definitely been a few matches that have gone a little too long. TBH sometimes I find an 8 minute car crash to be entertaining too. I don't even think Kip Sabian has been on TV since he almost took Hangman to the limit. It's ok to have a squash once in a while.

Lol. Long does not equal good. AEW hasnít had a single match of the year contender yet, despite every match being unnecessarily long.

Cody vs Dustin is my Match of the Year and I expect it will be a contender on most media lists?

Re: Already losing interest due to ridiculous match length

Losing interest? You’ve been shitting on this promotion since it started. Gtfo with that losing interest crap, you never had any interest to lose.

Btw, “I like most of what they’re doing, but...” is right up there with “I want them to succeed, but...”.
Nobody’s buying any of it.
