He only did that because the show AEW put on that WWE counter programmed was specifically a benefit show for victims of shootings and he saw counter programming that specific show as sleazy, he wasn't mad about simple counter programming.

Not using that as a defense. I think he needs to realize that business is about being amoral and WWE is going after a perceived threat no matter what else is happening, but that's the situation he was upset about.

Does this suggest that Evolved was a success going on against AeW?

Because competition does that. Even die hard WWE Mark's should thank that small t shirt INDY fed which finally woke up the boring beast to do a small change to the stale product. If it wasnt for that INDY fed imagine the continuation of shit...if it's bad now.
That's what makes it so hard to root for WWE. If AEW folded, we would just be back to the same old boring BS.

Re: WWE to 'test counter programming' on Saturdays against AEW PPVs

I thought they didn't see them as competition? The appearance of them trying to quash a fledgling company is going to cause the hardcore fans to rally around the underdog. Master stroke, genius.

WWE should focus more on producing quality instead of quantity.

Not necessarily, I have it, because its the only platform I can watch NXT UK on. Raw/SD (which is delayed by a month in the UK anyway), Miz & Mrs and Total Divas I can live without.

Once the 'Imperium' story-line ends though I will be cancelling my sub because I can watch Walter, Travis Banks, Jordan Devlin, Toni Storm, Candy Floss etc on 'Progress', 'OTT' and 'WxW', thanks to the partial agreement WWE has with these Promotions.

All this may backfire in the end. Or it may not.

What is WWE even scared of? Its not like they're even a remote threat.

NXT going up against AEW TV would be an interesting rivalry, but I'm not going to miss an AEW PPV for some Smackdown live B show!
