Recommended Posts

Triple H came across well there but I don't want to see diplomatic businessman Paul, I wanna see spiteful prick Trips.

It's not exactly punching down when the company is run by a billionaire.

It wasn’t a billionaire running his mouth, it was Kenny Omega. Like it was lame when Seth was bragging about how much money he makes, but was cool how Djokovic stood up for himself

Kenny Omega, a proxy for a billionaire then.

Look, I want AEW to succeed but there's absolutely nothing about them which is an "underdog". Tony Kahn isn't any different to any other mega rich fucker, he's just one that's been pretty good at portraying himself as an everyman where most that try fail miserably.

Other than Jericho and Moxley they have no name talent. Hardly equal to WWEs named value talent and established marketing machine are they. Money doesn't equal experience, market knowledge etc.

Their public perception is totally that of underdog, regardless if they actually are. Presentation is important. Yeah it’ll be more fun if Triple just ripped into AEW, but it wouldn’t be a strong look at all

I in no way thought it would be, I just wanted to see it for my own amusement. In all seriousness I want to see both companies flourish with the wrestlers getting better and better paydays and treatment, but I also want to see an all out vicious war between those at the top at the same time.

Agree for the most part, but one thing to bear in mind is that WWE's market dominance is pretty much unassailable. We even talk on here about how no other company should be trying to beat WWE, just try to carve out their own niche and pick up what fans they can. 

When people talk about wrestling these days, the first thing that comes to mind for the majority of fans and non-fans is "WWE/WWF". That kind of brand recognition immediately puts any other wrestling company on the back foot, so in that regard alone, they are the underdog.

Nobody in their right mind thinks AEW can compete with WWE. If that doesn't make them an underdog, what would?

The owner being skint apparently.

Also, WWE have a set-up that they've built over decades. Preferred relationships with venues and media organisations aren't something you can buy straight away. Plus, whilst it is indeed impressive that AEW have virtually been created overnight to become a second competitor whom wrestlers can consider a viable second employment option, they're a long way off establishing themselves to a point that they'll be able to start attracting a bigger portion of the star talent market, which will also be a factor in them getting anywhere. Not one for football analogies in wrestling normally, but this would be a bit like viewing clubs like Rushden & Diamonds as being on a par with Premiership clubs because they had rich owners at the time.

I honestly would like sky to pick it up

I fail to see why Sky would let BT take WWE then replace it with an inferior product.
