Um, this is easy...Cody starts the show with a promo acting befuddled, telling the audience that they sold the show out, yet no one showed up! How weird! They then expose that WWE bought up all the tickets, then the show carries on as scheduled.
And then practically the entire show will feel completely lifeless and empty. Sorry, but no crowd = no atmosphere

Oh, that's right, it's already happened. Twice. And both times, it was awesome.



lol Two matches versus an entire card full of them. Not really much of a comparison.

Re: Would You Put It Past WWE To Do Something Like This?

How would such a plan work? If they managed to buy all of the tickets (and they would have to take lots of extra costs to organize such an insane operation without raising any alarms), they would still have to pay them, which means AEW would still get money, so everyone would soon start to ask where did all those bought tickets go, which means they would get caught sooner or later, which means they would get sued, which means more money lost (that you'd have to add to the one they'd be throwing down the drainer by buying tickets to the competition) and their image irrevocably ruined in the process, which means less sponsors and less fans that AEW are going to get.

It would be suicidal on their part to do this.

*Carefully, carefully!* The mercenary, the mercenary!

Dude...you made a blanket statement that moments in wrestling would be worse without a crowd. I provided multiple, indisputable examples of why your statement isn't accurate, and you just move on and make a tangentially related point. To be clear: I don't actually believe an entire show without a crowd is the best possible scenario, but the entire scenario you posited is ridiculous to begin with. I'm sorry I even tried to squeeze anything out of this topic of conversation.

I'm sorry, man, but your debate style, if I can generously call it that, is f*cking brutal. If a lot of people seem frustrated in conversations with you, the reason is right there staring at you in the mirror. Not sure what else to say.

Not sure how logically disputing your points equates to having a terrible debate style. You posted exceptional cases and are acting like that makes it the norm, which is a logical fallacy. Just because people have enjoyed a random match or two in an empty arena before (and even THOSE matches would have been better with a crowd present, let's be clear) doesn't mean they'll want to sit through an entire three or four hour show and watch several of them in a row that way. That you fail to see the difference is pretty staggering.

If you go back and watch nearly any big moment in wrestling, they've feel far less memorable if there was no crowd in the background to make any noise.
That in itself would make it a memorable event. Imagine the headline “AEW All Out: The PPV that made Vince shit his pants”

I can't even give this a 1 out of 10 on the troll scale attempt.

Vince will have enough empty seats this weekend to worry about.
