oh word you are in Vegas so you got to see first hand, that's dope.

But still, it's a lot easier to put on a good ppv thats just one show, but when your talking about running a weekly tv show which will most likely have a 2 hour run time... that's x5 more difficult. Just ask wwe their tv product is absolute trash right now and they've been doing this shíte for almost 30 years.

these cats (Cody Rhodes, young bucks) they are very talented but they have no experience running a weekly tv show.

And their current plan is to NOT even have writers, they want to give their wrestlers creative control and say what they want on live TV... this can be an absolute disaster for them.

Still I'm hyped for AEW but I'm not gonna co sign with the "WWE IS IN SERIOUS tRoUbLeEEEe" brigade

Bold: That's the key word right there.

Wrestling and movies is literally the same thing.

All pro wrestling is is STORY TELLING with athleticism being the vehicle that drives the narrative.

Its not that hard to grasp.

I've lost major interest in Wrestling lately.

Kayfabe is dead, and everyone knows what's gonna happen before it happens, thanks to you know what.

Man does social media ruin everything.

Also the horrible booking:

- Lesnar in the title picture when you don't see him on regular shows.
- Charlotte forced into the Main Event of Wrestle-mania ruined the magical build up between Lynch and Ronda.
- No actual story-lines, everything is a mashed-up mess at the last moment...no reason to care then.
- Dumb crap that humiliates the talent instead of propelling them into stars.

So many...It had a good run

At the end of the day the wrestlers deserve more. If AEW forces WWE to step their game up and treat their performers like they matter then everyone wins.

The only difference is one is pre recorded and the other is done before a live audience in attendance and at home. So if you don't like it, don't watch. Try telling all those people with concussions and surgically repaired limbs how "fake" it is too while you're at it in arms length and see how that works out for you. Didn't work out too well for John Stossel or that Middle Eastern reporter that interviewed Leon "Vader" White.

Especially if they get real pensions and health insurance, maybe even are able to form a union, which Jesse Ventura was trying to do over 30 years ago. Would love to see it. Triple H will probably do the same once Vince dies and he takes over.

Exactly. Not a radical concept. See if I got any Green left.
