Scorpio Sky and 1998 WCW fodder CIMA are still a thing? Looking forward to Slyk Wagner Brown signing a deal.

CIMA was class when I saw him last year, he's definitely grown into a fun veteran role. Though him being there is more about him training the Chinese lads.

Yeah, CIMA hasn't been fodder for twenty years, certainly not to the primarily indy fan crowd AEW are going after.

But they will never be a threat to WWE. No one ever will. They ARE wrestling to too many people.

They don't need to be and shouldn't even try to be. They can carve out a great niche on their own. These days you can run a successful wrestling promotion without trying to take on WWE. There's more than enough room for a second strong company in the market.

They need some big lads on that roster of theirs. I like how they've clearly gone for a nice variety in terms of styles and companies, but that's one area of the roster severely lacking at the moment. Can't have every match be a 15 minute spot-fest with everybody under 6 foot.

 

You clearly missed Chuck Taylor and Trent Beretta when skimming that list.

And yet many are jumping on the AEW bandwagon claiming it's a WWE killer.

If TNA taught us anything, it's that it's not so easy.

But the most important thing is the guys involved don't seem to be saying that. When Bisch and Hogan went into TNA it was all about 'taking on WWE' rather than actually developing their product. Who knows, had they taken 2-5 years putting that groundwork in they might have stood a chance of at least being a very good number 2. AEW must do that. If in 10 years they're still in business with the TV deal still going strong and some genuine stars, then they've done amazing. There's plenty of room for both.

Fans talk about competition and beating other companies cause wwe haven’t shut up about ratings wars and putting wcw out of business for 18 years now. Two of the top wrestling podcasts have that completion between wwe and wcw as their main topic most weeks in STWW and 83 weeks. Its now Pavlovian in every fans nature to immediately think you can only have a winner and a loser in wrestling companies, when there is plenty room for both, and all the other companies going, to have success at varying levels

So Anthony Ogogo's training to become a wrestler and he's involved with AEW in some way, there's a spotlight video of him in the lastest Road to Double Or Nothing with Cody training with/scouting him.

Considering he retired from boxing at 30 due to a serious eye injury, is pro wrestling really the best move to make? That's assuming he's going at it full-time, of course.

You have to assume he could be doing something else, such as boxing commentary or something? If Carl Froch can do it...
