Re: I Love The Fantasy World Everybody Makes AEW Into

Idk why folk are acting like the OP was lying about folk acting as if everybody is going to be used properly to their full potential in AEW. Most don't think they'll put WWE out of business. But a lot seem to think they won't run into disgruntled workers and that everyone will have creative freedom.

There's plenty of logical reasons for the hype.
Even though there is a lot of hype due to the reasons you listed already-and rightfully so, but i'd just rather watch and see how it does. I'm just not really the kind of person to feed into hype.

Will i be pleasantly surprised? Maybe. Hopefully.

Re: I Love The Fantasy World Everybody Makes AEW Into

Something tells me that even if the first show happens and becomes the best fed ever there is a legion of apologists and or hype haters ready to tear this promotion a new asshole before it even gets a chance to get off the ground

Re: I Love The Fantasy World Everybody Makes AEW Into

The OP is right now some are overhyping AEW all over Facebook and Twitter without knowing AEW could be like. I'm taking wait and see before I make judgement call on them and see how they do. I mean All In was a fun show and like it but nothing groundbreaking about it. One red flag with AEW I'm seeing is how many Vice Presidents all ready has and that could be huge probleam with them



WWE Universal Title is the biggest joke of champions

That was mistake numer one. I could go on...


I'll take this on...

All the "points" you made are invalid. If you were in business you'd obviously want it to succeed at all costs. She must have gotten something right being on Spike from 2005-2014. As for hiring Hogan it was a smart business decision, he's the greatest known wrestler EVER - you can't argue that. The six sided ring was different and provided an alternative to WWE and besides it wasn't there for its entire history. Just because you didn't like it doesn't mean you should shit on it. AAA uses it and many different promotions have. And in my opinion the 'TNA Wrestling' name is memorable weather you like it or not...

Re: I Love The Fantasy World Everybody Makes AEW Into

I agree with the OP. You see guys in the WWE TV ratings thread actually saying that AeW will put WWE out of business, something like that.

"Something like that" isn't what was implied.

Literally nobody has ever made any of these statements in human history.

AEW is just treated as another option.

Re: I Love The Fantasy World Everybody Makes AEW Into

The percent of silly comments like they will put wwe out of business is like 1 percent of people interested in that. Most people are pretty logical about what it will be. But theres more percent of people saying the complete opposite.
