Patience my friend.

They gotta get the other tomfoolery out the way before we start getting this sort of thing.

Why bump refs when there are no rules and it’s canon that referees know who is going to win and will just stop counting?

Re: Wait.... 6 weeks in

Don't need ref bumps when AEW refs much more lax. WWE has ref bumps to allow overt interference and cheating to happen without the DQ being called. AEW allows both to happen in front of the ref and the ref to use their discretion about making the DQ call because fans don't like DQ finishes.

Refs make superstar calls and let more things go in bigger games. In UFC fights, in main events and title fights the refs might let the fighters take more damage before stopping it that they do in prelim fights.

I really like them going the New Japan route with the refs and making them actual people who (kayfabe) make actual calls in the match. WWE referees by comparison are portrayed as the dumbest motherfuckers on earth, one guy is crying in pain and holding his crotch, and the ref's like nope, pics or it didn't happen.

But the thing is AEW refs don't actually make any calls. It's pretty much anything goes
