Yesterday, i went down a Twitter rabbit hole of the AEW stans joking about how old recently released Bobby Fish is (45). In the past 60 hours or so, that same company has put a title on Chris Jericho, shot an angle with Sting and Muta, and booked the return of Christian, all to rave reviews from the very same people.

No lesson or point here, other than that I should stop going down Twitter rabbit holes. Not good for the heart at my age (almost as old as Bobby Fish).

…it’s a general joke in wrestling about Bobby Fish being “ancient”. It has absolutely nothing to do with AEW fans, and has been something people have joked about for years.

Him not being really all that old is the whole joke.

It also could have been fans laughing at Fish for allegedly trying to get Cole and O’Reilly to try to get out of their contracts and come back to WWE.

They said no thanks and now Fish is slumming it in Impact.


Did not know that. Thanks.

I think that’s the bigger vibe of the jokes over the last twenty four hours.

Stories came out that allegedly tied him to trying to get Cole, FTR, KOR, Swerve and Black to get releases to return to WWE, all the whole doing interviews stating he would “go to war” for Triple H if asked - only to find himself not being hired back by WWE and ending up in Impact. And, likely being outed as the person allegedly trying to help tamper with contracts / play middle man to help out feelers out.


Yeah, that was the impetus for the jokes/hate/whatever all surfacing yesterday. But they were all about how old he is… which, unbeknownst to me, was a running gag.
