    Re: All Elite Wrestling Discussion Thread

    The idea that Tony still lives with his dad despite owning a wrestling company is absolutely hilarious. If he doesn’t, he should move in and make a reality show. I’d be the ultimate key demo for that shit.

    Hunter calls punk a skinny fat ass, Nash powerbomb’s him (while blowing out his quad of course) and THEN Vince hits him with the “YER FIIIIYAD!!!”

    I want this. So, so bad.

    I think either AEW exists or it doesn’t. No second leases on life. However, as I mentioned before, with his dad’s deep pockets, they can essentially run forever. Whether Shad keeps financing it is another question.
    i imagine Vince would buy the company for the AEW footage and ultimately the ROH footage which at this time is way more valuable than AEWs


    The thing is....AEW is still in the red. Tony pisses money away like its water. He spends money like Dixie Carter did.

    Dude, WCW was in the red for YEARS after Bischoff starting running things. Just because they aren't profitable yet doesn't mean they aren't growing, you gotta spend money to make money.

    Ain't worth it, Dave. There's always another goalpost with him.

    No one even knows that AEW is "still in the red." The last time it was mentioned was in a report about the video game over a year ago. It's just a talking point consistently parroted by those hoping for AEW to fail.

    I think Vince probably wanted Tony to buy RoH to put himself deeper into the hole. At least that’s what I would have done. Still, billionaires don’t dig holes, so it’s not like it would have had much of an effect.

    Apparently AEW is in the red because of the video game, which is costing them a small fortune on the hopes of a solid return. It’s actually not a terrible strategy until you question how many people are actually going to buy it. Can they get some of Lockport Phil’s non-existent casuals interested? Because if it’s just the hardcore fan base, I can’t see the sales being mind blowing. Keep in mind that my knowledge of the video game industry is sub par at best. Will this game feature enough DLC to carry its costs?

    EDIT: It’s true that we don’t know if AEW is even in the red, but I think it’s a safe assumption. Lots of companies operate at a loss for long periods of time. Again, I’d love to see their financials, but that’s the benefit of being a private company.

    Thats true, but AEW riding this momentum doesnt mean they are coming out on top after all is said and done either.

    They seemed to have plateaued as far as ratings and interest from fans go.

    Also Wrestling was way more popular back in the 90s.

    Oh i bet hes letting Tony hire everyone for the same reason.

    Yeah its video game thats keeping them in the red. Its also the last game they make with the publishers as they ve been butying heads with Twinkle Toes since outside of being a wrestler, hes a video game creator

    Re: All Elite Wrestling Discussion Thread

    Also, I’m not sure if I’m being lumped in as one of these people that want AEW to fail, but nothing could be further from the truth. As a WWE shareholder, I want them to have some competition in order to better their own product and make even more money. Plus, if AEW fails, I won’t get Tony’s rants anymore, and that would be a sad day indeed.

    I do, however, want to see AEW put a little more emphasis on safety and maybe even some form of training for SOME of their workers. There do appear to be an inordinate amount of botches in some of the matches on Dark and even Dynamite/Rampage, and some work in that department can only benefit everyone. I also want them to get rid of the two tunnels, but that’s just because I think they’re silly.

    This post-Blood & Guts promo from Daddy Magic is a further demonstration of his chops as a talker. Who woulda thunk these 2point0 dudes would be doing this after their WWE run was ended. I seriously woulda expected them to just be doing Canadian indies and shit again.

    They are doing Canadian indys. I might be going to the next IWS show and they are booked for it. Though its PCP Crazy Fuckin Mannys retirement show, im assuming they are going to be there for it since he helped put them on the map.

    Oh man, Tony is at it again. This is from an article in the New York Post in regards to AEW's potential next tv deal..

    “Whenever our next media right deal, the next one does kick in, it will be historic. It will be recorded in history because everything in wrestling is recorded in history into posterity. It will make history however it goes. Right now, everyone would expect very, very well. We expect it’s going to go very well for us based on how strong we’ve been performing.”
    This sounds, nearly verbatim, what Donald Trump would say in the same circumstance.

    Anyone else having a hard time seeing who takes the belts off Jade and Rosa in the Women's division?

    I can see Britt getting a 2nd reign by regaining the belt from Rosa, and can only see Toni beating Jade.

    I'm still of the belief this Jade/Athena/Kris angle will eventually see Jade drop the belt without taking the pin. After that you've got an easy candidate for beating Rosa.

    Don’t start. You don’t want Aubrey…I mean….’Donald Stevens’ coming round to redact all your posts.

    As for the women’s belts. I feel like Thunder’s booking has been a bit shaky so it could be any flavour of the month. I really hope it’s not Baker, it just feels too soon. However, I personally think Kris should be the one to dethrone Jade. Athena gives me supporting act vibes, whereas Kris always had a steady momentum and I think she’s polished herself up to be taken more seriously.

    Re: All Elite Wrestling Discussion Thread

    Thinking about All Out being 6 weeks away already. Potential matches looking dope so far

    Spoiler:


    If Punk can go then him versus Moxley is the obvious main event. Not sure who else Moxley would face at this stage.

    Rumours abound that Omega will be back and we could get that Elite/Undisputed Era match. Depending on a load of injuries though.

    Looking at TV, we could potentially have:
    Jade/Athena/Statlander
    Jungle Boy/Christian
    Starks/HOOK
    Swerve & Lee/FTR (sod it, if the Bucks aren't champs this is the next best option)

    And that's still leaving off a ton of top names (Hangman, Darby & Sting, rest of the BCC, Kingston, Jericho and the JEC, MJF, Wardlow, Thunder Rosa)

    Also Acclaimed/Ass Boys and Lucha Bros/Ingonables but I can see those on happening TV.


    A lot of potential at the moment.
