this, what they are doing is what njpw has always been doing. you don't have 100 goons in njpw writing some dumb stories.You are trying to explain that to people that don't watch/care about NJPW and only know Vince/WCW way of booking.
Gedo is hella overrated as booker. The NJPW tag divisions stink. Anyway, back on topic.Only difference between we the people in the thread and Tony Khan is we can 't afford to have our own company. He isnt even with Gedo not in a milion years. Or any booker that spent their life with this.
What is tape trading?.The guy is 36...he would have been a toddler if he was following NWA during its heyday lol
They do. Cody books the singles division. YB book the Tags and Kenny and Brandi book the womens division.While you don't need the big team of writers from out of wrestling like WWE does hopefully they have something in place for a booking committee, I'm sure they do but whenever I hear about wrestlers having control I get bad flashbacks to WCW. I realize it's something that works for the most part in NJPW and the AEW guys don't give the vibe of being too much into themselves like guys like Nash or Hogan I still hope there's a solid booking committee there.
Thanks for the further insight, I also meant someone outside of the active roster helping out as well, I feel like they'll probably be in good hands with the veterans they have around though.They do. Cody books the singles division. YB book the Tags and Kenny and Brandi book the womens division.
The massive difference between AEW and NJPW is that NJPW doesn't rely on a weekly television show like AEW is going to be.You are trying to explain that to people that don't watch/care about NJPW and only know Vince/WCW way of booking.
Yeah, it did read that way. But I attribute that to the fact that Meltzer can’t write worth a shit. Combine that with his penchant for inserting his opinions and suppositions into his facts, and, well, you get this.Okay that makes more sense. The way it reads, it came off like everybody would be making their own stories.
I hope you realize that before WWE got all heavily scripted this was how wrestling was done for decades, wrestlers coming up with their own shit.He noted this on the radio show this morning, the show is literally going to be the Wrestlers coming up with storylines and promos, and Tony Khan having the final say of approval on everything.
Could be an absolute train wreck, but it's exciting nonetheless, it's definitely going to be a different style of show than we've seen before.
Knock it off. This isn't 1999. The audience has changed and so have television viewership. What you call "crash tv" happens everywhere now. It isn't unique, especially in pro wrestling. And LOL @ asking Russo to come in. That would surely be the death knell for AEW as a viable alternative to WWE.Sounds like WCW.
Get Russo in. Let's have AEW be the fun car crash tv show, as opposed to the wrestling show NXT will put on. I know I'd rather see segments, promos and angles than just vanilla matches. Car crash shit tv draws.
