    I started watching wrestling again since there's no sports. tried watching AEW a couple times and most recently with the two Fyter Fests.

    all I saw on AEW were geriatrics, cornballs, fanooks, and rejects.

    Young Bucks are still the worst and your man Omega has lost the aura he had when I watched some of his Japan matches a few years ago.
    Private Party look good and Ambrose looks to be enjoying himself and more comfortable there though.

    good to see Bodega Bamz peoples Santana and Ortiz doing well though.

    Only one I'll give him is Omega. Everybody who was keeping up with NJPW knew that Omega was in the running for Best in the World and they failed to capitalize on that when he got stateside. But I get it. AEW's booking corps doesn't seem like they want to have themselves all in the video like prime nWo.

    I think I said it last year, but they’ve had their entire approach towards their own star power completely wrong. You don’t build guys up by bringing yourself down to their level. The promotion exists partially because of just how hot their whole Bullet Club run was and the partnerships that came from it. You don’t get the platform they got, just to turn around and not uphold your own star power and recognition. In trying to avoid getting the backlash that would’ve came with booking themselves favorably, the Elite instead diminished themselves. If anything I think that’s hurt the company overall.

    I thought you were responding to my post at first, I wasn’t referring to him earlier. Mostly Omega and the Bucks

    What has he been watching :pachaha:Jericho and Cody were super pushed.

    AEW either needs to create some stars of their own or throw the bag at some "big names" :yeshrug:

    what is there to create?? 95% of their roster consists of stars from other promotions.

    theyre doing a good job at building the lesser-knowns who were buzzing indy but didnt do TV before AEW like orange cassidy, private party, darby allen, jungle boy, and even some of their women.

    they just gotta move jericho to the midcard, go head and push kenny omega to the moon without feeling guilty, and create a seperation in the tag division. lucha bros, young bucks, LAX and i guess FTR should be head-n-shoulders above the rest. and ive been saying for a while, that they should bring in a secondary tag team title for the rest of their teams like when WCW had the U.S. tag belts back in the day. either that or a trios title or both. they def need more belts on the show.

    Imo The Elite had a lot of loses to important matches early on.

    I watch AEW every Wednesday, and PPV (not like Raw or Smackdown where i'm not that focused on it)

    I think they need better storytelling, and better booking. Simple as that. I think they have the talent, but they have to improve on making us care for them. Sometimes i feel like all they focus on is match, after match. Spot, after spot. Storytelling, and promos take a backseat. With everything currently going on in the world. I'll give them a pass. But they were doing this before the pandemic.

    One thing i loved about the attitude era is they'd for example have Stone Cold start off Raw with a promo. We would still see, and hear from Austin throughout the night. At least again for the main event or something. Shyt back then was always developing live.


    Darby should be TNT champion. Definitely not Cody.

    I think Cody (and maybe the rest of The Elite) should be a heel, or at the very least a tweener. I feel like Cody, and Omega could be heels, while Hangman, and Young Bucks are faces, and all of them still remain a team.

    Luchasaurus should be competing for the AEW title. Not win it, but at least competing for it. He can still do tag matches with his boys and do his own thing to (Rey fenix is in the same boat). I feel like they don't do that in wrestling enough. If ever.

    Stop giving camera time to Colt Cabana, QT Marshall, Brandon Cutler, Luther, Nakazawa, Blade & Butcher etc.

    Push that Ricky Starks nikka he has potential

    MJF and Wardlow should be tag champs

    I think fans could get behind a face Lance Archer. They put him in the title picture too fast.

    Omega should be a heel, and feud with a face Hangman.

    They could do the obvious AEW vs The Elite

    Most of their titles look trash. They gotta do better designs.

    One of their biggest problems is their Women's division. It's like they don't mesh well with each other in the ring sometimes. Their attire be looking cheap af, and their gimmicks be trash, or non existent. WWE kills them when it comes to these things. I mean it's not even close. There's legit only like a handful of women in AEW that has a decent gimmick, promo skills, and in ring skills.



    That's just some of their problems, and thing they can improve, or should be doing imo. I got a lot more that can improve the show, but i already wrote so much :pachaha:

    It's not even that i hate them. It's like every time i watch a match of theirs, they lose. Their momentum was killed practically when they debuted.

    They should also make dark order more Illuminati/bildeberg group and drop the weird fukking gimp shyt they’ve got going now. Brodie could be doing the same shyt dressed up in an all black suit with faceless masked guys behind him instead of wearing a cheap ass wizard costume from party city. The nwo style vignettes don’t match the gimp theme at all rn.
