The thing is there is a difference between a few minutes of silliness on a 2 hour show and how much of a deal you are making out of this signing (and this is from someone who bashed said signing earlier in the thread as most definitely not a fan of this signing)I’m going to address you both with the same overarching point. I’m not likely to be watching AEW. That is the problem.
And stop telling people they don’t know how someone is going to be used as if that is some sage point. It’s that they are being used. There is no base psychology for signing someone like Marko Stunt in an on-air role when you are trying to market wrestling to people. It. Doesn’t. Make. Sense.
And the whole “it’s wrestling, don’t take it so seriously” BS is just a straw-man to justify bad ideas that chase people away. The only people who don’t have a problem with it being silly are still watching.
This isn’t rocket science. If you run a wrestling promotion like a circus, like WWE has been for years, like TNA arguably always was, and like WCW ended up, people are not going to watch.
If you’re not going to take yourself seriously, why will anyone else?
If the rest of the show is good then why should I not watch just cause someone like Marko Stunt is on it occasionally probably not even every week (and in my personal opinion he's honestly the only signing I out and out dislike given I like a bit of comedy in my wrestling as long as it's lower card and very sparing). You not liking more of the wrestlers is an entirely different issue and a much more valid reason for not watching that I completely understand but you seem to be aiming all of that at this signing for some reason.
We ain't holding you at gunpoint and forcing you to watch if you dislike enough of the roster you don't want to that's your choice not everyone can be pleased it is fine to not be a fan. I just don't get how this particular signing is so significant in such a decision for you when it's just one guy and one segment every other week.
