Tito Ortiz avoids vote of no confidence in Huntington Beach
Floyd Mayweather Jr. vs. Logan Paul postponed
On Dynamite: Beach Break was headlined by a big six-man tag as Kenny Omega & The Good Brothers faced off with Jon Moxley, PAC & Fenix with a surprise appearance, it was finally time for the long-awaited wedding between Kip Sabian and Penelope Ford, the participants are revealed for the Women’s Title Eliminator Tournament, Lance Archer met Eddie Kingston in a Lumberjack Match, and a ten-team Battle Royal to determine the #1 contenders for AEW Revolution.
AEW seems to have a lack of faith in its own product to draw. It keeps resorting to using wrestlers from other federations (e.g. the women’s division for a long time), feuds with Impact, now with NJPW, using celebs like Shaq. None of this is particularly sustainable.
Why did we have a battle royal tonight for #1 contenders? Thought that was why there were rankings
I mean the women’s division is bad so I like them bringing in talent for now. As to the rest in order to draw you need to get eyes on the product. Not sure that impact does that but the celebrity appearances do.
Yea, fuck those AEW fan boys for liking something interesting.
I know it’s your gimmick and all, but at least attack them for stuff that is deserving, such as praising that terrible wedding or looking forward to that terrible looking tournament with Japanese women most have never heard of and the same talent that is on their roster, that is not worthy of a title shot.
I don’t see the problem. They have a huge stash of talent from Dark on up to the main event guys on Dynamite, and they just keep bringing in more. What is wrong with integrating wrestlers from other promotions? I will take this EVERY TIME over WWE running back the same three matchups every week with DQ finishes on RAW.
One of the biggest mistakes WWE made last year was cutting all the jobbers. Nobody ever wins in TV anymore. It’s DQ DQ DQ DQ DQ and MAYBE you get a finish on PPV. They have maybe four or five guys on each roster who they are actually willing to let get pinned. I definitely prefer AEW’s approach of fresh matchups every week and constantly bringing in new faces. I don’t think you are privy to AEW’s finances or long term plans and are therefore not qualified to determine what is or isn’t sustainable.
