I know AEW has a lot of steam at the moment because it's the new thing, but once things start settling down, what's the ceiling for the company?
There's all this talk among fans about how they're competition for WWE (even though the company itself denied it), so...how high can AEW go? Will they get as far as TNA did circa 2006-2007 or as high as WCW did in the late 90s?
As far as I'm concerned...I don't see them getting far. They have a prime time spot on TNT and they appeal to hardcore fans, so they'll definitely find an audience, but I don't know if they'll appeal to casual fans. You have a lot of wrestlers who are not yet established on a big platform and the production values will need to be improved (the presentation is not horrible, but things need improving - the theme songs don't stand out yet, the titantron's aren't anything special, the promo packages look kinda dated, I know some people complained about the camera work...)
Disclaimer: My opinion is based on the very little I've seen. Who knows what direction the company will go once they start airing on TNT.
