What these fans do want, or claim to want is just pure workrate, failed gymnasts and wanna be circus acrobats putting on spot fests. So thats what AEW produces most of all. Goofy characters, cringe worthy characters, and at that most of them have a complete absence of an actual character but they try and make up for it by cosplaying or doing something like that.
This is wrong. I think you're making gross generalizations

The problem is not on AEW, is on their thin roster.

Jon Moxley is a fucking star, Jericho a veteran, MJf and Hangman good prospects.

But then, look at the bottom of the roster and the star potential is almost zero. They gotta go on a hunt to find marketeable guys with charisma and some big guys.

Is it? Look at this forum and how much most people bang on about workrate being the be all end all of Pro Wrestling. Look at how long it took a guy like Miz to get any respect, compared to how many people think guys like Cesaro should be Main Eventers.

For whatever reason so many of us ignore most of what makes Pro Wrestling, Pro Wrestling and just narrowly focus on the moves.

AEW say want to target "lapsed fans", I assume most will not know who Kenny Omega is and how good he actually Kenny Omega is. If they have only seen him in AEW, yes they would be underwhelmed.
Maybe Kenny is just being unselfish and wants this to become a huge success? Had he catapulted himself into the spotlight instead of trying to build up people like PAC, so that he has gotten off to a rocket start, people would’ve screamed “nepotism!!” I think what AEW, apart from Cody since he’s been undeniable, is building up strong heels, which is good. Had we just strong faces it would be boring, a face is easier to build up after you got some strong heels. Kenny has proven himself to be an A+ player and he can take a backseat until the division is ready.

They certainly need to snatch up a few stars. There's too much of a star power difference from top to bottom.

WWE is going for the war of attrition route.

Re: AEW has problem, just to name a few...

I do agree they need to do a better job of explaining the history/mindset of their characters. I think the problem here is they're doing some of their best storytelling away from TV. Something like the Britt Baker promo really should've been on TV.

I also think at some point it needs to be addressed that despite the fact he is killing it, Cody feuds are getting a disproportionate amount of focus compared to other feuds. It makes more sense now that he is in the title feud, but it was still happening with the Spears feud. Going forward just spread the love is all.

For as fire as its going to be they've done a pretty lackluster job of building up Moxley vs Omega. Like if I wasn't vaguely aware of Omega's cleaner moniker I'd be so confused on why he's so attached to the barbwire broom lol.

I think the women's division is weak as hell. But I think everybody agrees there. The women are lucky folk seem to find them cute, thick, or that they have nice asses because they don't have much going for them at the moment. But they are adding pieces maybe by DoN 2 they'll be in a good place.

He's not stating it like it's fact. He wrote a well reasoned essay, you merely shit posted.

Step up your game, mark.

Jesus Christ this has to be the worst shit I've read on this forum yet. Sick of marks on here getting ultra-triggered when a mild breeze of criticism blows in.
