Right. I would say the vast majority of us are just excited about the possibility of a new major wrestling promotion to fill in the hole created by WWE. Could be we're being over-optimistic, but based on what we've seen so far I'd say that optimism is warranted.

Might we be disappointed? Of course we could, we haven't seen an actual product yet. But they'd have to really, REALLY suck to match the disappointment that WWE has been the past 15 years.

Send lawyers, guns and money.

Getting onto TNT...I just cannot understand how Jamie Kellner let this happen. He was the man who stood in the gap, and after all of his promises, now, he lets All Elite Wrestling back onto his station?

It's been nearly twenty years since wrestling fans saw someone with DEEP pockets try and break into the American Wrestling scene.

I'm not saying some the hype isn't hyperbolic, but can you really blame them for getting excited?

Re: I Love The Fantasy World Everybody Makes AEW Into

AEW is a major threat simply because they have resources, are going to have a major television presence, and because WWE is dying. There are millions of people that have stopped watching wrestling in recent years that didn't just all of a sudden stop being fans, they left because the WWE's product is awful. AEW is in play for those fans.

WWE posted a loss last quarter. So if you think about it, but not very hard, they could be a bigger company than WWE.

I just want more wrestling to watch

Plus, any company who hires Big Dust and Shitty Greg is alright by me.

Re: I Love The Fantasy World Everybody Makes AEW Into

I dont think they are trying to put WWE out of business. Im just looking forward to another big wrestling company existing and putting out an alternative product. Having optimism about the possibility of AEWs succcess shouldnt bother people so much IMO.

Literally my way of looking at it. It all sounds like a lot of fun to see grow and develop.

As for this "rant", ehhhh, we got an AEW thread to casually bat this around from now on. We certainly can't let a few hyperbolic comments/overzealous fans out there in the world truly think WWE is gonna die/be usurped just because AEW is around. The hot take noted, plenty expressed against it. We're good.
