AEW Fight For The Fallen

Recommended Posts

Pre-Show's have a clear purpose and that's to convince anyone who is on the fence to watch the main product you are trying to sell.

If it was me I would mostly use it for hype videos, promo's etc. Any match you put on there is immediately up against it because people would tend to think "well these lads aren't good enough for the main show"

Their pre-shows sound insane to me. Lets just say you were a casual fan, checked out the pre-show, for some reason you found it incredibly entertaining. You loved it (outing yourself as a deranged pervert in the process). You decided to watch the main shows. Wouldn't you be slightly baffled that the main show is absolutely nothing like the pre-show?

I don't think anyone is having trouble with that. Except maybe Cody.

This is the bit I'm not sure on. Is that audience really there for this? They're effectively web only at the moment. Most people watching them either watch their You Tube output or decide on what they've read and heard online. I just don't see a crowd checking out their pre-show to see whether to order. That's not to defend the shit on it. They absolutely shouldn't be turning the stomachs of people who have bought the show anyway.

I do feel slightly hypocritical. I've barely watched a WWE pre-show ever and certainly haven't reviewed them on it. I've watched 2/2 on AEW and panned both.

The Jericho interview should be on the pre show. Known performer, and have him tease it won’t be the last you see of him that night. 

 

The librarian shite is hopefully on its way out given this weeks BTE. It’s the kinda 2 minute rubbish you can have on a web show, but has no place on a proper show. Good opportunity getting someone a super babyface reaction taking them out though

Part of the me thinks that the pre show bollocks is just Tony Khan catering to Kenny and The Bucks, by letting them do the shit they find funny. And hoping they eventually grow out of it.

I reckon the pre-show will eventually just be Kenny Omega and various joshi birds streaming games and asking us to smash that subscribe button. Live chat will just be weirdos begging for f33t pics.

For anyone that didn't see BTE, they addressed the Librarian stuff going down badly - but in the usual BTE way, by having BluePants saying it was the greatest moment of her life, and Matt/Nick deciding that the passion of her speech convinced them that the Librarian gimmick was a winner, and it should be all Librarians all the time. 

So they're aware (as with the 'More comedy' bit in the same skit). Be interesting to see if they can make it work at all, but agreed with everyone else that their approach to pre-shows is lacking.

Fucking hell. Thought something epic had been announced when I saw how many new posts had appeared in the topic. Thanks for the disappointment lads.

I'm starting to get the feeling that the Bucks are the types to treat any kind of criticism as if it's been spewed by Jim Cornette and instantly do more of what they're told is bad.

Also, it's bloody amazing that their sense of humour is somehow sub-WWE, it's the absolute lowest rung of comedy.

Aids ridden graphic here. Looks like a six man tag, no "vs" next to the names and that caption above it. Three teams are wrestling for an opportunity at a first round bye? What a shit show.
