Weird thing is aew heads have went out there way this weekend to avoid acting like wwe competition. Don’t let the opinions of the internets worst cunts drag you down on those actually involved in it making out it is competition

Which is why I said that the Vince is scared shit can fuck off.

I don't think for a second that Vince likes the idea of another wrestling promotion on a prominent TV network but that's more down to him being an insecure obsessive rather than any genuine fear over his company's ridiculously massive market share.

What’s that got to do with AEW?

Kenny's shagging Hikaru Shida isnt he? There doesnt seem to be anyone employed by this promotion who isnt connected in someway to the people running it.

This is one of the things I'm finding amusing; there's an awful lot of "jobs for the boys" about it. 

More than once on Twitter I've been critical of AEW, and got replies from accounts with 0 followers, sometimes with no previous Tweets, rushing to defend them. It's just odd behaviour, if nothing else.

Let's see whether they can get a TV deal and start outdoing Impact Wrestling before we start thinking about the third coming of the Monday Night Wars.

Jim Ross has said they have a TV deal lined up - it seems inevitable, just waiting for when they can formally announce it.

I think the plan has always been to announce the deal at Double or Nothing. I've thought that from the off and am surprised that it's not the common consensus.

I'm not hanging my hat on AEW like some, but I also reckon they've thought this out a lot more than they've been given credit for.

I think this is something we can agree on - there's clearly a business plan in place, and they seem to have realistic expectations as to what they can hope to achieve. It's not the actual AEW crew that I see talking about Vince running scared, and how they'll be signing John Cena and Randy Orton away from WWE and dominating the wrestling business, it's just a certain class of fan.

The problem is that those fans tend to be louder than AEW themselves are, so I see more of that rhetoric than I see of what AEW are actually doing, and - through no fault of the AEW crew - I'm put off the whole endeavor. 

Take the vocal fans out of the equation and we're left with a promotion with an interesting, diverse start-up roster, and some potentially very exciting working relationships with other promotions (the link with OWE is going to be the best thing about AEW, in my opinion).

I think its Dave Meltzer's cheerleading that puts me off AEW so much.

Over the past few years I've come to realise that what Meltzer loves so much about modern wrestling ("Its never been better") and the obsession over workrate and 12 star matches involving blokes I've never heard of at the Tokyo Dome etc, is basically the polar opposite of what I want from my wrestling (basically 1992 WWF forever).

As a result, I've kind of made my own mind up that I won't like it even before they've put on their first show, which is a bit irrational I'll admit.

Why do you read meltzer then if you don’t enjoy his views? 

Seeing as he's one of only about four proper wrestling journalists who has actual contacts and actually breaks stories instead of rehashing someone else's work, you don't exactly have to subscribe to his newsletter to be aware of his output.
