Vince has final say in WWE. Hasn't stopped the opinion that HHH and Dunn don't like each other and that Dunn is gone whenever Trips and Stephanie take over
While Meltzer has an inside track with The Elite, he is also misled by them a lot. He's printed some ridiculous things that has come from their camp, and he gives them the benefit of the doubt in situations where that doesn't really make sense.Personally, I am not a fan of rumors being reported as fact in any scenario. I haven't really been following the WWE or WWE news for a while but if I were, I'm sure I'd hate this Brock Leanar/Matt Riddle thing too.
One thing to note is that Meltzer has a relationship with The Young Bucks, so he might actually have inside information on AEW, instead of having to make shit up or make intelligent guesses, like he occasionally likes to do.
Brother Chip just dropped the leg, brother, brother!We are all the same guy and you've worked out the mystery. No way could 5-6 people in a country of over 20 million people ALL dislike AEW. It MUST be The Wood making multiple fake accounts [/sarcasm]
It's almost like there are valid and logical reasons for not being completely enamoured with the product AEW are putting out. Hmm.Disliking it is one thing. Disliking it for exactly the same reasons and using exactly the same phrasing is another.
As for that other stuff, those are your words, not mine.
I don't get how this is supposed to resolve issues. Parents picking favorite kids never leads to drama, right? You are still dealing with the competition of ideas, clashing metrics, jealousy, etc. Tony Khan is also kind of a deer in the headlights with this thing too. A lot of wishy-washy "we shouldn't have been so silly for the first six months" kind of stuff from him. No shit, Tony. Did you maybe want to get onto that six months ago? It seems that he just lets them do whatever they want. Dynamite is like three different shows in one. He's not doing a great job giving it one unified vision so far.
Maybe in terms of match quality, but he is politically 100% behind AEW even over New Japan. His dream is for New Japan to work with them so he can put all his eggs in that one basket.I don't wanna copy that long ass post but Dave Meltzer is definitely a much bigger shill for NJPW than he is for AEW.
Actually, that would be 100% why the power struggle makes sense.
The issue would be that he would do this if it was the WWE rumors, but not AEW though. And we all know why he wouldn't want to do this with AEWSeems like Whatculture is being really clickbait-y here.
If there really are sides being drawn here, then I side with whoever canned the nightmare collective.
That being said, I think it is irresponsible for a "journalist" to treat rumours as if they were fact. TBH I think Dave Meltzer already does too much of that as it is.
I think that Omega's philosophy is the one that wins out the most.And out of those different philosophies which ones are they? You’ve got to choose one.
Alvarez is an idiot..I think that Omega's philosophy is the one that wins out the most.
He is their most marketable star in their eyes, and the fan's. You had Bryan Alvarez basically saying here could become a Hulk Hogan/Steve Austin level star before this started.
Keep in mind, Cody IMO doesn't have the same pull with Khan Omega does, because outside of here, he has never been THE top guy. Omega has. That makes a significant difference in the eyes of a guy who admits Dave Meltzer helps him form a lot of his opinions
You don't need to start off shit to get good. And no, the Nightmare Collective did not have potential.If everyone in charge agreed with each other than nothing would get better.
However they shouldn’t be so quick to pull the plug on ideas, they need to give their performers some rope.
Nightmare Collective for example had potential.
