Sounds like you're trying to present your opinion as the overwhelming opinion of the AEW audience, that's clearly false. Hes just had three top class matches in a row and is over huge with crowds. He's doing just fine as a babyface champion.

His character and the story they gave him had actually gotten quite interesting for a while there, and then they just pumped the brakes and had him hang with the dark order and nothing was ever the same. I still think he has value, but this title reign definitely feels like they had a plan all the way up to him getting it and then it ended there.

When you pair up the champion with the largest collection of jobbers, the Dark Order, it's proof enough that they don't know how a champion should behave.

Imagine if Steve Austin came to the ring with the Oddities while being champion...

The only one that made the Dark Order look like a little decent was Brodie Lee (RIP). After that they all went downhill and are annoying ASF.

Why would anyone care? One of the most over most cheered guys in aew getting the dumbest fucking storyline leading to a flat world championship win followed by even worse storyline after. Tony Khan is a joke of a booker with horrible lack of creative. So this idiot forced the dark order story right until he won the belt. Which many heavily chritsized from the start. Then he wins the belt and these guys are nowhere to be seen? Absolute joke


Tony Khan has managed to flop the most over talent and I think this will happen for many. Yet he has to go to Twitter to defend every stupid thing.
Criticized?

Dude check what you've written before you post. Most actual fans of the show loved watching Bryan run through The Dark Order before the face off with Page and that 60 minute match was fucking tremendous -- then they come back and have a fucking killer match sprinting into the finish.

Just asking, but are you French Canadian?

7 posters on WF and 4 from reddit does not constitute "heavy criticism".

He was paired with them before he was champion though.

That's the point, the guy was hot as fuck and then they started doing this bullshit.
He lost his friends and the DO came along and tried to recruit him and while he never joined them, it lead to an unintended real friendship in kayfabe.

Go back and watch the 10 man tag at FFTF, go back and watch the DO members VS Bryan... AEW crowds/fans are behind the DO/Hanger friendship and story and like it. And the guy I was talking still hot af for Hanger.

You may not but reality is your opinion is in the minority and thus holds no water because of that.

Like why would they move away from something that is working for most fans and over with those fans?

uh....he beat Danielson clean in the middle so the push is real. Not sure what people expect out of a babyface champion to be honest. Newsflash Steve Austins title run wasnt that memorable, his chase was though. Its about the babyfaces chase that gets people captivated.

Page doesn’t come off as interesting to me and his feud with Danielson wasn’t that exciting. So nah. He doesn’t come off as the most important and compelling person to watch in the company.
