Post LOLAEWs as they happen folks

>May 18th, 2022
>During the end of Dynamite, the cracks in AEW's facade started showing. Literally. In a bizarre incident, Brian Danielson caught his leg between the ramp and the ring and then was trapped, unable to release it for around 5 minutes while ring crew and wrestlers tried to free him.

>May 27
>Ruby Soho qualified for the finals of the inaugural Owen Hart Foundation Tournament with a win over Kris Statlander on the Double Or Nothing go-home edition of AEW Rampage on TBS ... but the crowd was not happy. Prior to the match, the two women cut side-by-side split-screen promos on each other. Statlander's promo was so passionate that she instantly won the adulation of the crowd, who were on her side throughout the match that followed. The crowd's energy served Statlander well, and the momentum was on her side for a large portion of the babyface vs. babyface match ... but then Soho used an Oklahoma Roll to score a pinfall victory out of nowhere, much to the crowd's chagrin.

Bryans leg thing was a work


The Ruby Soho crowd turn wasn't due to anything more than the flat ending to that match. The flow of the match went like this near the end:

Ruby goes for move but gets reversed into 2 big moves, kickout
Ruby reverses move into roll up, wins

The crowd was left thinking "That was it?"

the fact you tried somehow ranking this as if you keep a list of only their WORST ever PPV, and you eagerly watched this in comparison to that, only goes to show how miserable you must be in viewing an otherwise fun, and best all time seller for them.

Does not mean the show is bad. Your opinion and your friends opinions are not fact.

The unanimous excitement and support for the show however, says otherwise

Pointless waste of space thread this is anyways. Of course after the PPV someone had to balance out how OVER they have become.

AEW is far in away the best promotion in the world right now.

They do great and steady ratings. They're the only wrestling company not named WWE to actually do numbers on PPV. And most impressively have great attendance numbers.

But you wouldn't know that by how defensively some of y'all respond to any bit of criticism or even humor derived at the expense of AEW. Goofing on them on /wooo/ isn't going to hurt them,

AEW's biggest problem is that they allow their talent to do stupid reckless shit.

There is no reason CM Punk should be doing springboards or Jeff Hardy wrestling weekly.

Wrestling isn't safe. People have been injured and worse for decades now. It's a part of it. Yes wrestlers should be careful but if someone chooese to do a move they shouldn't That's on them. I really don't like how WWE over produces and over dictates what its roster is allowed to do. Make the entire thing sterile and takes the gas out of a massive about of wrestlers.

As a fan I don't know why you would want to watch worse wrestling.

I'd rather watch CM Punk cosplaying as Bret Hart and doing all of his moves than him doing springboards.

With Danielson reportedly injured, many fear it is concussion related due to not being able to travel by plane. IF true, will this change AEW's reckless behavior towards their stars?

It's no surprise AEW has been in the shitter since Cody left.

I'm not a fan of Tony Khan handing participation belts to almost everyone on the roster, which nullifies the prestige behind their main championships.

It's almost as if LOLTNA was a completely bad faith meme based on nitpicking any remotely negative news about TNA by WWE and NXT fans.

It's just more evidence AEW diehards are the same NXT nerds that sent Triple H a fruit basket.

I barely watched TNA. I'm just saying once LOLTNA resorted to shit like "[X] got injured and they had to vacate the championship LOLTNA" or "[X] missed a flight due to weather and missed the show LOLTNA" it jumped the shark. Some things are just unavoidable and are commonplace when it comes to a wrestling promotion. There was literally a LOLTNA post when they hired the American Wolves (former ROH World and Tag Team Champions; an unobjectively great signing) based on a rumor WWE passed on them.

So far post MJF Wardlow.

A better booker would have had him screwed in the battle royal or said the lawsuit has made the AEW match makers skittish about putting him in it (which might actually put heat on that dumb storyline).

Instead the story is that he's too dumb to realize being interim champions means he would get first shot at CM Punk.

I'll fully admit I was interested in the signing. He started growing on me in the 2010s mostly because of how many chances Kane got when Show was clearly better at everything. So more out of comparison and sympathy than actual excellent.

And he would add a much needed layer to AEW. He wasn't going to try and keep up with the spot guys, and any of the guys put in one on one matches with him would have to get out of their work rate comfort zone and actually start to think about how they would fake fight someone 3 times their size.

And then he had that match with QT where it was clear he could barely walk to the ring and I became instantly fine with him being an internet commentator or whatever they have him doing.

I don't think it's that malicious. He probably thought Jeff was in better shape.

Plus he's only been booking for 3 years and never worked in wrestling before then. And is trying to do this cascading booking method which as far as I know has never been done before where instead of building to a PPV or big arena show he's trying to have at least one feud have big match or blow off every couple of weeks.

Probably a mix inexperience and bad communication. There might be some guys he thinks of as just toys to slam into each other, but overall I think he genuinely (and naively) wants to be friends with the wrestlers that work for him.

I don't know if it's ego as much as he surrounded himself with guys with ulterior motives who are also really bad at booking wrestling.

Don't take everything he says at media scrums as gospel. It's PR of course he's going to say everything that happened that night was great. You can tell by how much AEW has improved in the last 6 months that he's very aware of their short comings even if he doesn't always know how to address them.

CM Punk: Examining How Much of a Financial Success He is to AEW
https://tjrwrestling.net/feature/cm-punk-aew-financial-success/
>CM Punk’s Rampage debut drew a 1.12 million viewership, which was excellent for a show at 10pm on a Friday night. Unfortunately the next week drew 722,000 and they declined for seven straight weeks after that. Now, I don’t think anybody expected Rampage to average 1.12 million viewers every week. However, declining viewership for seven straight weeks shows there wasn’t enough interest in Punk’s debut to keep people coming back.

>oday, they average roughly around 500,000 viewers for Rampage when they’re in their regular time slot. I know people will talk about their pre-emptions due to NBA/NHL Playoffs and that’s valid, but everybody gets pre-empted. Smackdown gets bumped to FS1 for the World Series every October but nobody seemed to give them a break when they only averaged 1 million viewers compared to the 2 million they get on Fox. Preemptions happen all over television in every kind of programming. Arn Anderson once said it best. If you have what people want to see, they will find a way to watch regardless.

>CM Punk debuted on Dynamite on August 25th and pops the viewership to 1.172 million and a 0.48 in the 18-49 demographic. The next week drew 1.047 and 0.37 in 18-49. That means at least 125,000 people sampled Punk’s debut and decided not to come back. Even a step further.. The Post All Out Dynamite. Remember All out had CM Punk’s first match in seven years as well as the debuts of Adam Cole and Bryan Danielson that Punk said was better than The Outsiders joining WCW. The post All Out episode drew 1.319 million viewers and a 0.52 in the 18-49. Those were some of the highest numbers in their history and got a lot of people, including Chris Jericho, claiming that AEW would pass WWE Raw in 2022. The next week drew 1.175 million and 0.44 in the 18-49. That means 144,000 people sampled the debut of Punk, Cole, and Danielson and did not come back. Dynamite last week got 939,000 viewers. Yes, they competed against the NBA Finals. Then, when you look deeper, they haven’t drawn over 1 million viewers since March 23rd, 2022. So, unless they draw 1 million tonight or next week, it’ll be three months since they drew 1 million viewers. As I mentioned earlier, nobody expected Rampage to draw 1.12 million viewers every week at 10pm. However, Dynamite is the A show. It’s the flagship. One million viewers should be the minimum.

>This time last year they were on those Saturday Night Dynamites so their viewership is way up year over year. The number is misleading when you realize their first Dynamite back at their regular time drew 883,000 viewers. AEW was supposed to skyrocket once NXT moved to Tuesdays and they’ve gained only 100,000 viewers at the most since then. CM Punk was supposed to be the savior. The guy to push them past Monday Night Raw, even though they’re not actually competing with them. Yet, after his debut, they’ve fallen back into where they were before. Could it be because Tony Khan doesn’t really know how to follow up on impressive debuts? Possibly. CM Punk spent his first few months back having random throwaway matches. His match with Eddie Kingston at Full Gear received a two week build up and one promo. His feud with MJF was great. It’s probably the best feud AEW has ever put on, but what did it really do for MJF? He lost to Wardlow and the reason he’s one of the most talked about talents in the business right now has more to do with his rift or work with Tony Khan and not his rivalry with CM Punk.
...
> Double or Nothing 2022 buys with CM Punk and Hangman in the main event. Reports have the buys at around 155,000 buys. That is up from last year’s show, but down compared to AEW Revolution 2022 which did 170,000 buys with Adam Cole and Hangman in the main event. So who’s the bigger draw here? Adam Cole or CM Punk? That’s a legitimate question. It’s CM Punk’s first World Title program since 2013. His first World Title win since he last held it in WWE in early 2013. Yet, it did not surpass the number from Revolution. That should be a telling sign. Yes, his merchandise sells. Santino Marella and Orange Cassidy were also big merchandise sellers. That doesn’t mean they moved the needle, with all due respect to them. It’s not just AEW. His UFC run did tremendous in his first fight with 475,000 buys. A great number that can largely be attributed to Punk. His second fight did 250,000 buys. That means that 225,000 people saw his first fight and said “I’m good” and didn’t order the second.

>The common theme is CM Punk seems to be great at drawing initial interest in the product but seems to be unable, whether the fault of him or the promoter, to drum up enough interest to keep those people from going away. Pay Per View numbers have gone up but Punk hasn’t been in the main events of 3 of the 4 Pay Per Views. How much of that success can be given to him or given to the fact that the sheer volume of talent AEW has accumulated should automatically increase the numbers at some point. The only PPV main event he did compete in? The second-lowest of his four Pay Per Views, and it barely beat out Full Gear 2021 at 150,00 buys for the lowest of his four appearances. So yeah, certain analytics and people will spin it and have you believe that the arrival of CM Punk is this massive success.

>Tony Khan went on a profanity-laced tirade at the Double or Nothing media scrum about it. At the end of the day, merchandise aside, has CM Punk honestly moved the needle? Has he grown the AEW audience? His numbers as a Main Event guy on Pay-Per-View were down compared to Adam Cole. Rampage has lost 700,000 viewers since his debut. Dynamite has lost 300,000 since the Post All Out episode.

>I think CM Punk is a great in-ring performer. One of the best of his generation. When you go back throughout his career, you’ll find that he was never the biggest draw at any point in time. Close to it, yes, but never the biggest. There have been way too many financial flops to accurately say, for me anyway, that CM Punk is the biggest financial flop in the history of the business. However, if you look at the numbers from when he first arrived until now, you can’t with a clear conscience say he’s been a massive success either.

AEW Rampage draws lowest demo rating in show history
Rampage also averaged its second-lowest viewership in history.
Friday night's episode of AEW Rampage averaged 331,000 viewers on TNT, down 30.5 percent from the previous week. It's the second-lowest audience in the history of the show but by far the lowest viewership Rampage has done in its regular time slot.

In the 18-49 demo, Rampage finished 22nd on cable with a 0.10 rating, which is the lowest rating the show has done in its history, regardless of time slot. That's down 37.5 percent from the previous week.

Rampage's previous record low in the 18-49 demo was a 0.11 rating that the show drew on May 6 when it aired at 5:30 p.m. Eastern.

Rampage was down across all demo categories with the biggest drop coming with males 12-34. The rating was down 66.7 percent in that demo.

Listed below are the last 11 weeks of overall viewership and individual demo ratings for Rampage. This week's show was down 24.7 percent in viewers and down 37.5 percent in 18-49 as compared to the recent averages in both categories.

Doesn't surprise me. The average American that watches wrestling doesn't care for this Forbidden Door bs. They don't want to see some ugly gook do an epic stare down with someone and have a chop festival match for 35 minutes. Americans want soap opera shit and crazy high-spots.

Dynamite's ratings are also down.

For something that was overly hyped, this card sucks.

No Okada, Danielson or Punk. Everyone still exhausted from Double or Nothing.

Yeah. I don't know if their contractually obligated to run this as a PPV, or if New Japan said they'd only do it if they got a cut of PPV buys. But if they knew this was mostly going to be the card, they should have just made it a month long event on dynamite where they were going to feature New Japan talent.

Also would have been a great PPV to "test out" doing a bunch of singles and normal tag matches instead of having all these multiman matches.

I didn't know that about Okada, sucks.

But if they went in knowing they were shoving Suzuki into a six man tag for someone else's feud, the tags champs and heavy weight champs were going to be in 3 ways, some rando being put into a 4 way for a new title. Then I don't know why they would think it would be worth paying for in such short turn around time from their last PPV.

"easy brother we already got their money"

It's the same reason, AEW is trying to sell you to watch Dynamite and Rampage and Dark and Elevation and ROH... because they're trying to sell you more products to buy.

It's so weird that people keep thinking there's some kind of "pro wrestling fan altruism" going on. They fell for it with HHH and NXT and they're falling for it again with Tony Khan and AEW.

NJPW and AEW are working together because they have to. NJPW wants its own stronghold in the US but can't do it on their own. Theres so much politics at play between who is going to be featured, who is collecting what on the gate, who is getting pinned, who is getting the pin, etc.

It's the same bullshit politics that have plagued inter promotional supercards since the beginning of wrestling. Whether it's the NWA, AWA, WCCW, Memphis.
Literally the only time an inter-promotional war got to play out without drama was ROH vs CZW and Zandig literally assaulted his booker Mike Burns when he found out how weak he allowed CZW to be portrayed.

It sold out because it was originally sold to people as this once in a lifetime AEW vs NJPW show that would have all of these once in a lifetime matchups. Instead, we're getting a card that's basically one of those "special event" Dynamite episodes with a few NJPW guys thrown in.

I'm sure the show will be fine, and Punk and Danielson getting injured probably threw a wrench in a lot of their plans, but it's definitely not what the show was originally marketed as when tickets went on sale, or when all this Forbidden Door cross promotion hype started over a year ago.

Buyer beware. How is this any different than when WWE does it with Wrestlemania?
The show sold out before a single talent was confirmed. Why would they need to kill themselves to make a "once in a lifetime" event when it was clear the fans will open up their wallets no questions asked for Will Ospreay vs Orange Cassidy?

I bought my ticket for the show today for less than $50 since I coincidentally was already going to be in Chicago that same weekend. I mean this isn’t any different from G1 Supercard as the show is announced and was sold out based on NJPW talent, The Elite and Bullet Club though by the time the show comes around, it’s much different than anticipated and it feels lesser than hyped.

I also want to add that I feel that they should have put the show on in April between New Japan Cup and BOSJ, which lines with AEW’s schedule being in between Revolution and Double or Nothing. Since Forbidden Door is only a few weeks before
G1, it’s a lot tougher to pull together a card with top talent.

Maybe someone can correct me on this. But I’m pretty sure they dropped that phrase early on.

The original idea for AEW was to have CM Punk on top and for Jim Cornette to be Tony’s booking assistant. So when he couldn’t buy either of them in 2019 he had to play to the strengths of the guys he did have.

A couple times someone has leaked who agented some matches. Off the top of my head Jerry Lynn was the agent for the tooth an nail match.

Younger wrestlers just have really bad instincts. They've mostly wrestled guys as green as them and they've had less matches under their belt than any prior generation.

And the agents probably didn't think they needed to tell anyone not to do anything that requires blatant and obvious cooperation or to not try new spots on TV unless you're 100% sure you can pull it off.

The most LOLAEW thing that currently exists?

AEW Fans believing guys like Andrade, Bryan Danielson, Eddie Kingston, Buddy Murphy, PAC, Malakai Black, Darby Allin, Kyle O'Reilly, Adam Cole, Daniel Garcia, Danhausen, Hook, Jungle Boy, Keith Lee, Swerve Strickland, Lee Moriarty, Marq Queen, Miro, Orange Cassidy, Pentagon, Fenix, Wheeler Yuta, Wardlow, Claudio, Johnny Gargano and whatever WWE reject that comes next will all be AEW Champion one day.

Of the names you listed, Andrade would if his English gets better, Danielson could quite easily be champion, given his successful run in WWE, Eddie absolutely could be, as long as it's not as repetitive as his CHIKARA GC run, and Keith Lee absolutely has allnthe tools to be champion. The rest I'd say is a fair point, Adam Cole is much better as a Heel Challenger for the Face champion to overcome, and Wardlow could go either way, depends how much he improves.

Plenty of time yet.

If you’re pushing any of these, I’d go with swerve. It would feel sufficiently different, and I think he has the confidence, charisma and ability to carry it.

None of AEW’s young talents are nowhere near ready, and of the ex WWE guys I think only Danielson could have a decent run, but … injuries.

It might be cool to put it on a New Japan talent, much like ROH did with Morishima. But very much doubt that could be worked out.

They're in a good position. Still young. All 3 have flaws they need to work on before a big push. They win a lot of matches on the B shows. At least they did away with Cage.

Yeah. JR said they need to do the spot where everyone blatantly stops the match so they can all catch one guy diving on them. And then Cutler said he can’t wait to do that spot in his upcoming 8 man tag on the internet show. And then got cut from the tag match.

I’ve also noticed when on of his guys tries to start shit with Cornette on Twitter, even Kenny, they seem to stop pretty quickly. Say what you will about TK but he won’t tolerate disrespecting the elders.

I don't even think Cody meant what he said. They had to justify what they were doing and "we don't want a bunch of exWWE guys" sounds better than "we're working with extremely limited options so were just focusing on getting our friend's hired."

Obviously we've seen what happens to the TV show when their best performers are in their 40s and they get hurt at the same time. So yes of course they should be "making their own"

So I'd like to point out that in under 3 years they've made MJF a star, in no small part of that was working with "ex WWE guys".

I don't know who Bey is but Fatu and Hammerstone would make great additions to the AEW rosters. But they aren't going to benefit from wrestling dead end AEW guys like Jungle Boy and Sammy. They're path to stardom is working with the WWE guys.

JFC m8, it’s one thing to make fun of dementia but in the same swipe as you call anyone else one of “worst posters” is too hypocritical to ignore.

Nobody cares about pointing out some flaws here and there as it makes them better to be given their flaws than to have them all ignored and accepted gleefully by “YES MEN.” Puns intended, as Punk intended. What isn’t cool or acceptable is that most if not the entire premise this thread clearly serves, as well as half the posts given to it, is clearly a mere counter balance the day after every great show AEW manages.


Basically yall are just making fun of something others enjoy because you don’t relate to joy. You are miserable, so miserable you don’t even realize it anymore or relate to actual joy, instead masking it as joy whenever you try stealing the joy AEW fans have as you continue despising any chances at success they have.

Maybe someone can correct me on this. But I believe TNA was the first wrestling promotion to embrace youtube, mainly cause it would cut the costs of hosting videos on their own website. So they were there first and there longer.

And people don't really unsubscribe from youtube channels. You can be subbed to someone and skip their videos for a week and just never see them on your front page again without even unsubbing. Likewise you could constantly be recommended a channel and watch it for months before you realize you never subscribed to them.

You can look at both channel and just going by their most recent videos the low end of iMPACT's videos do single k viewership with the high end doing about 50k. Where as AEW's least watched videos are around 50k and their most watch stuff is over 100k with some going as high as 500k.

However it you go by most popular, AEW topped out at 40 million with some OC matches. But iMPACT got almost 200 million views from some evening gown match from 8 years ago.

As crappy as TNA could be they were ahead of their time with some stuff. They also had the first streaming service.

the only thing that makes this thread shit is the amount of salty dick riders getting upset over someone criticizing or making fun of a million dollar wresting company

idc about this thread. i care about the environment on this board and it's so sad that the death of /wooo/ will be because of butthurt aew fans who clearly listen to too much figure4 go around shitting on anyone who says something slightly critical or making fun of aew.

it's not 2019 anymore
aew has surpassed the "we/fans" era. posting anonymously on an imageboard defending them to the death is not gonna help them in any way.

This right here is one of the problems with /wooo/. Constant console war arguing over everything.

"Why are so and so fans like this?", "drone", "aewtist", enough of this juvenile name calling. That is not lighthearted mockery/criticism.

sorry to be presumptuous
but i mean let's be real

do you see anyone defending wwe/njpw/nxt/cmll/impact to this extent?

any thread i've seen the past year that is critical of any other company tends to have discussion. the threads or posts that are even remotely critical of aew become "but wwe" "but tna" "go back"

it's like...??

aew has been the most fun wrestling i've watched since early ruthless aggression era smackdown. sadly however it's fallen off since revolution.
and any criticism as to why so many people are not enjoying it anymore gets shut down.

that's why i said aew fans. i don't see anyone on imageboards take things so seriously. all the people on pw who act like wwe is good are at least funny.

I'm an AEW fan, but I'm not a big enough fan to approve of everything AEW does.
I can and have complained about shit AEW does and stuff they need to work on.

The women's division sucks.
Constantly telling people "we'll stay with the main event as long as it takes" and only one main event that I can recall went passed 10 PM, and that was by a single minute.
Booking too many matches for PPVs. Forbidden Door had more good matches than Double Or Nothing and more were on the Buy In, but 13 matches is still too many.
Adam Cole is shoved down our throats, not as much as in NXT because he hasn't won the world title yet, and that's slightly less.

Yes there are some people that will defend everything AEW does, there's at least one person that goes off on even rational criticisms, I'm not denying that, but ffs not everyone is a diehard AEW/WWE/Impact/whatever defender on /wooo/.

I mean there's people that enjoyed Forbidden Door, were not making fun of any other company, and there's at least one person going "AEW fans need to have their heads examined if they enjoyed OC vs. Ospreay."

AEW's 'Fight Forever' In Trouble? Console Game "Way Over Budget"
Strained relationships, budgetary issues... the latest on AEW's Fight Forever game.
https://whatculture.com/gaming/aews-fight-forever-in-trouble-console-game-34-way-over-budget-34

"It got to a point where it seemed bleak and maybe we would never release this thing, but we kind of got past that, and with the go-getters at Yuke's and the guys on our side and Geta [Hideyuki "Geta" Iwashita] and his old contacts that have hopped on board and helped push us to the finish line we, hopefully, can be on schedule to make sure we get this game out by this year. Hopefully. Fingers crossed," Kenny Omega said.

>He pointed out how both of them don't stand side by side anymore and barely interact. Also that Santana has been taking solo bookings only outside AEW and that the two haven't teamed for quite sometime now.

So not only did AEW ruined this tag team, they somehow broke them apart.

Even Meltzer said last week that the style of today when coupled with the schedule isn't doing anyone favors.
Having banger matches every week and wrestling like that more than once a week is risky, but wrestling like that but wrestling only once every two weeks doesn't keep your body calloused to the bumps and bruises as well, so you're more prone for injury, using a runner's routine as a point of reference.
AEW for instance needs to allow their talent to work indies elsewhere so that they wrestle more than once every two weeks, but they also need to not go so hard until they NEED to go that hard.
Budokan shows were brought up as they'd get 3 weeks off afterward.
Another thing to think about is how some of the greatest workers that would get rave reviews for their matches would work multi-man matches where they could do stuff, but not have to go crazy and still have a presence whilst not having to do a whole lot of dangerous / intensive spots.
It needs to be examined and carefully considered in both AEW and WWE how to proceed, because they're the two having the biggest issues with injuries as of late.
The obvious call for AEW is to allow for talent to take indie bookings with the advisement that they don't go out there trying to intend on having some crazy 5 star spectacle, since they need to save those kind of performances where they can get paid and where it matters: on AEW television and especially on PPV.
A little bit of restraint will go a long way and it'll mean more to the fans because when everything's amazing, nothing is. It desensitizes and dulls people to take things for granted and not be as purely excited about things as much as they should more and more, eventually to the point where you can't feel it the same way anymore.

I think you’re being really hopeful to think there’s enough indies that can afford aew talent and run frequently.

TK really should consider houseshows. They might even be able to run them at a profit. The aew live experience is in high demand. It would also help mold the younger guys or at the very least give them a chance to try out a convoluted spot before they botch it on television.

This right here. Modern wrestlers are too obsessed getting the 5 star spectacles. Meltzer is doing the right thing becoming more critical of AEW given how TK is going to injure all of his roster if he focuses on weekly 'bangers'.

TK should watch some Nitro from 97 to understand how to structure the shows more. Probably the best weekly show ever.

>Kenny talking about being more story-driven
He knows he can't go the same level he did with the G1 anymore. I'd rather have him wrestle a more safer style than having him completely injure himself completely.

There is also no need to have guys like Omega face wrestlers like Danielson on a weekly basis.
