Re: All Elite Wrestling Discussion Thread

They can't do Tuesday's because of the NBA on TNT. I say they go for Monday's head to head with RAW. If they get Moxley and CM Punk.... hype it up... they will beat RAW in the ratings week 1 and never look back.

That’s not a ton of Tuesdays - 10 or less if I’m not mistaken. Could easily air it on TBS or change the time or days on those weeks (maybe even building up to the possible alternate TBS dates and making them seem more important than their weekly show as special AEW broadcasts).

Doubt they’ll go for Mondays unless WWE regulary starts getting less than 1.5 million viewers each week before they launch their show - and even then, I’d doubt it for the time being. This is a new company that probably will want to air on a night without direct over the air competition to start.

Definitely will be interesting to see which night they choose to start airing. My guess would be Tuesdays to start on the week of SmackDown Live moving to Fox for at least a bit.

Hyped.

Can't wait to see Best Friends, Chuck Taylor and Beretta every week.


Really happy for Chuck in particular, so entertaining.

The NBA on Tuesdays doesn't really concern me when they could just have AEW on from 8-10 and then a West Coast game on afterwards.

NBA games arenít historically on Tuesdayís on TNT but on Thursdays. Theyíve only recently done this due to lack of programming.

AEW can have the 8pm slot while an NBA game comes on at 10:30.

Or TNT can move games to Monday nights which is also an option.

Re: All Elite Wrestling Discussion Thread

The amount of people in this thread almost hoping AEW will fail before getting out of the gates, is astounding. If you are a diehard WWE, are you really afraid what this will do? AEW will not put Wwe out of business. If you also think thatís their goal, you are mistaken. Maybe people are super content with the way wwe is now? Idk. But competition is a good thing. It challenges people to come up with better products. I would certainly not mind having a better WWE product. Itís been years since I was interested in anything but a few nxt episodes and I always watch the Rumble.

AEW is a sign that the wrestling business is not dead, and Iím really looking forward to see where they can go with this. Rival WWE? Probably not. Create a great alternative that can grow over the years? Very possibly.

If someone is flat out wishing fail on this company, all that is is saying alot about that person and the issues they have in life and lack of maturity . Becuase you dont get idiots saying well its stupid Amazon or hulu are trying to do what netflix is doing. How dare some other company bring me more content and variety .

How dare someone give me more wrestling on a big scale, how fucking dare them.


The amount of stupidity that someone comes off as with statements like that is not only an embarrassment to wrestling fans but an embarrassment to society and to people all together.

Enzo and Cass together are always ace but no to Enzo alone unless heís strictly a manager. But iirc he and Cass are signed to ROH at the moment.

Re: All Elite Wrestling Discussion Thread

Why are people saying AEW had one show already? Did I miss something?

Iím guessing they mean All In, which even though ROH and NJPW was involved, was still run by Cody and the Bucks

And since they own that brand, I think it counts
