    WWE really drove people away with YEARS of garbage and people will give the same chances they gave WWE. So sure AEW has a lot more garbage and "sports entertainment" then some want but its different and its not WWE. I think they settled on a number of people who will tune in regardless. I think they can only grow from this point. If you haven't tuned out now not sure you ever will.

    I liked AEW when it first started, ordered the PPV's for support but every week the story lines make no sense. Yes it's all the favorite Indy stars but least keep them consistent. That drives me crazy more then the acrobatic moves. Jericho's bald head old head buddy from Canada on tv..why? Cody and a cake girl..why? Hangman should be a top star but they made my man a drunk with the Dark Order why? I know Tony Khan is a fan so I respect it but picking off angles and tactics out the blue. JR called them out for stupid shit and the locker room cried .We all know WWe issues for a decade straight. Make sure y'all check the podcast thumbs up good shit

    If I did 50 laps could you explain 3 good things on that show by the time I'd return ? Hell no You couldn't or Bulldrops either. Dark on YouTube is a embarrased by itself.

    AEW is so weird to me because everyone always has such hot takes on them. Everyone either hates them and how they are ruining the business, or blindly defends them and acts like its the greatest promotion on earth.

    I feel like I'm one of the few that is just meh on them. It's something different, they do some good things, but they also do a lot of dumb shit too. I don't watch it every week not because it's worse than the other products, but it's not a whole lot better to me. I've also pretty much stopped watching wwe unless I need background noise. Recaps and PPV is kind of where I'm at

    Yeah, they've made some questionable booking decisions especially when it pertains to their women's division pre-pandemic too. But I agree you can like them and criticize AEW when you think they do something wrong. It doesn't have to be a huge indictment on them or circle back to WWE in some way or fashion.

    AEW is the only promotion I watch weekly anymore. I don’t think they have been particularly great booking wise since their PPV in September, but I find Dynamite wildly entertaining every Wednesday. Some of it is unintentional, but it’s never boring to me. A big part of that is because it offers a little bit of everything.

    AEW started from fucking nothing 2 years ago. How far they've come so quickly is absolutely incredible. Perfect? No. But they run circles around RAW, which has been on the air for a quarter-century.

    She responding to him last week so she's aware of this guy. Especially after the Sonya situation, that's got to be scary for them

    He's switched accounts a few times, I think Alexa reported him and then she replied to another tweet saying "I see you got a new account" or something like that. Seems to be going on for a little bit now, hopefully then figure out who he is

    Actually she hasn't really used twitter last few days. This is one of her last tweets. Hopefully the authorities are involved
