If AEW puts on 3-5 All In type events and does a weekly show that’s anything but the typical wrestling show, then it’s set out what I have always thought I should set out to do. Be an alternative.
The fact that unique or different types of people are a turn off is disappointing but also, I respect that. Wrestling has always had something for everyone and All In has that.
Not that they should try to do this but imagine a G1 of the following: Omega, Jericho, Cody, Matt Jackson, Nick Jackson, Hangman, Baretta, Chuckie T, Pentagon, Fenix, PAC, MJF, Janela, SCU. That’s a lot of interesting and good matchups. And this is only the Day 1 Roster.
It compares on paper with what ROH or Impact offers and in terms of match quality, these guys can all work. It’s not minor league talent. And while they’ll u doutedbly take flyers in guys like Sonny and Jungleboy, I have no problem with trying to introduce new people to a bigger audience.
Is the Rally or the BTE episodes as of late any less entertaining that stretches of Raw?
NXT is the only show that hits on all cylinders no most the time and they have no name talent involved all the time.
I don’t know what people expected. And I think judging it before it gets its feet under itself is premature. But I get it. Wrestling has become all about immediate gratification and slow builds and longer stories being re-introduced are going to take time to get used to.
