Ok if you don't want to watch it don't :draper2. Not gonna lie but the majority of wrestling is predictable if you watch enough. Especially weekly tv. Like I said the commentary team are there to sell the show to audience. Not shit on things you don't like. They advertised a title match weeks in advance. They are using it to build someone in defeat. Also I used the hiac ppv as an example of wcw 2000 but use whatever headcannon you want. A few brawls and interference is not.Questioning his chances would help create an underdog character, without making the commentary team look dumb. Not shitting on him, but questioning if he has what it takes. It's very different. And yeah you're absolutely right. Why would anyone want to tune in to watch someone who has no chance in a fight? Darby has no chance no matter what the commentary team says, so why would someone want to watch it?Commentary are there to put over talents not bury them. Just cause you don't like darby getting the match does not mean commentary should shit on the wrestler. Why would someone tuning in want to watch someone who has no chance in a fight? And I mentioned wwe because that is what wcw 2000 was like.
You mentioned WWE for the same reason everyone else does on this section. If you shit on WWE it makes the flaws in AEW less obvious.
