He brought up a good question on today's Observer Live show, so I'll repost it here to get some opinions;
>"Why do you anti-AEW fans want AEW to fail? Not why you think it will fail or reasons you believe it will fail, but simply why you want to see it not succeed? What are your motivations in wanting it to fail?"
I'd like to hear your answers to this /asp/

The cold hard truth is these haters all get butthurt because they feel threatened by AEW and Cody. If they really want AEW to fail, they would just ignore it, but they're giving them so much attention
>>
>>6868478
Please don't do that here, I want legitimate opinions with no juvenile team sports shit flinging.
I am fascinated by the question and want to know people's perspectives.

i dont want it neccessarily to fail but with its success it will kill alot of smaller promotions. 9 out of 10 people who watch smaller promotions (ie roh, njpw, etc) are watching it simply because they are fed up with wwe. since there isnt a true competitor to wwe it makes all these smaller promotion flourish. if aew becomes wcw level type competitor to wwe then it becomes two-promotion system where if u are sick off wwe go to aew, sick of aew go to wwe, and then those smaller promotions will start to die off and eventually bought out by wwe or aew.
>>
>>6868464
I have one too. Why do AEW marks pretend every statement or opinion that isn't gushing praise is some sort of attack despite knowing full well a good alternative benefits everyone?

There's the autistic edrones doing console wars shit mostly. Then there are people false flagging as autistic edrones to work everyone into a seethe and make the autists think there are more than 10 people who watch WWE.
There is a contingent of contrarians who just hate the Elite dudes because they're popular and another who think AEW will kill other promotions - it will likely hurt PWG pretty bad. So far it seems they're trying to work with those promotions though. On the opposite end WWE actively hurts other promotions.
Then you have the weird angry losers who spend all day crying about things and complaining for no reason.

>>6868464
I would have to guess it's because anything that they end up doing good is going to make the WWE look bad. The WWE is not putting out a good product right now, so even if AEW ends up being more bad than good, it's going to be a lot easier to point to something and say they are doing that particular thing better. And for the bad stuff, it can be pretty easily excused by just saying they are a new company with a lot of green wrestlers. Plus the fact that Vince has never treated any kind of competition as good for business, and has gone out of his way to hoard talent and damage other promotions before because it worked well for him. And he commands a lot of loyalty from the fans of the WWE, so I'm sure a lot of people are thinking that he is right about that.

Hopefully it does reasonably well, and the WWE can pick up some different ideas about what works with the fans now, so their TV can improve.

>>6868464
I've been e-fighting simps so we can get ready for the monday night wars.

>>6868464
Because they're leading with a freakshow of cripples and trannies and SJW virtue signalling and WWE leftovers that aren't going to draw wrestling fans, fight fans, or regular people.

Hopefully I'm wrong and it's great, but I don't think all that feel-good junk is gonna last past the first year if they actually want to thrive. I don't wanna see Bully Ray vs Hulk Hogan or Dickman doing dickshit or Harry Potter doing a run in, casting magic spells on wrestlers(Sumerius De Nanteenanteetutes) or stuff like that.

Most of those who want AEW to fail weren't around to enjoy the Monday Night Wars. Those were great times to be a wrestling fan. If Raw sucked, you could switch to NItro and vice versa. Competition is good but the current generation was taught that competition is bad. They played games without keeping score and everyone got a trophy at the end.

I wouldn't say I want it to not succeed. I don't even want it to fold. What I want is the reality check that it will not be WCW right out of the gate. Even WCW wasn't the WCW we remember right out of the gate. It took years for it to build. It took time to build Sting, Goldberg, The NWO, etc. I know a lot of it is shitposting but there are people who believe that it will RIP WWE on night 1. When it doesn't, we're gonna see threads "AEW on suicide watch" or the like.

Like damn, one time I asked what channel it would be on in Canada because I don't get TNT and got (you)'s of "bait" "COPE" "E-DRONE" "YA SEETHE". At least one of those likely has a word filter so I'll probably get buried by it lol.

TL;DR I want everyone to chill the fuck out about AEW until we see the actual show and see if it really is any good.

The Bucks are the picture of fragile egos. They threaten to have other wrestlers block people on Twitter and they threaten to add indy shitters to their blacklist. But when Daniel Cormier clapped back at one of them he played victim like a little pussy.

Well, if it weren't for spite, humanity probably never would have made it out of caves. I just can't understand why the spite for AEW, when WWE is the single purest cancer in all of western culture and entertainment. I mean, Cody has an inflated ego because he thinks his success is based on his own ability and not nepotism, and the Young Bucks are complete faggots, but AEW is the chemo for the WWE cancer infecting western wrestling, by sole virtue of not being the fucking WWE.

You know wrestling is fake, right? It's like Rukia Kuchiki fighting Aaroniero Arruruerie. If the women can work (granted, that's a big if), it really makes no difference.

There is ONE tranny on a roster of over fifty fucking wrestlers, you hysterical dipshit. I understand a passionate hatred of SJW virtue signalling, witch hunting, segregationist, destructive bullshit, but you're being incredibly paranoid. Much more likely than AEW going full Marvel Comics SJW Political Marketing Arm is them ruining everything with Young Bucks style gay ass flippyshit (see wubm).

Get your fucking wits together, stop making such a fool of yourself, and at least wait until they've done a goddamn show to condemn them for something.

Do you ever stop to think that you just might not like pro wrestling? Stop watching it, go play video games or watch anime or otherwise consume a form of entertainment you don't actively dislike.

I don't particularly care for lacrosse, so I don't watch it and don't constantly complain that they don't ruin it by turning it into something I DO like. I just watch rugby or hockey instead. Though faggots like you that never liked hockey in the first place are well on their way to ruining it by insisting no one can ever be fucking checked anymore.

Because I think the Bucks and Cody are opportunistic mediocre workers that book themselves for the best spots on the show, in the indies that they run.
They can’t compete with actual celebrity’s and squirm when actual competition is working alongside them. Thats why they indoctrinated Kenny, it’s something they can add to their collection and use that name as their own under one brand.
Any time these insecure geeks get called out on Twitter they completely lose their minds and look pathetic.
I can’t stand Becky or Seth, but I tolerate them because they are contracted workers on a short leash that won’t mouth off.
What Cody and Co is building is their own self mark fantasy promotion, where one of the main draws is that wrestlers can actually be themselves. Bullshit, they are going to find out hard in the first few weeks of ratings how fucking cringy their unscripted talent show is, and it’s going to be shit show when they try to recalibrate their promotion to mirror WWE’s because it’s a system that works, or did once upon a time.

So do you only watch wrestling that has drawn the largest amount of money? Do you forbid yourself from watching wrestling that takes place on smaller shows/indy shows/etc?
Do you have to researhc how much money a particular wrestling card has drawn before you decide to watch it? Do you allow how many are in attendance/what the live gate was to determine your enjoyment of the matches ?
Also do you personally see any of the money drawn ? It's odd to be so hung up on something that has not effect on you personally.

there's more money in the business now than there was back then so that means the new wrestling is objectively superior.

AEW is an insincere wrestling company staffed by hipsters. It does not celebrate pro wrestling, but rather makes a smug mockery of it. It is always winking to the audience.

I do not want this type of company to succeed. I want it to fail and I want other wrestling hipsters to follow suit.

>>
>>6868464
To be honest it’s the air of arrogance around it coupled with them absolutely fleecing what seem to be very unstable depressed people. So many folks on twitter saying that the Elite is the only thing keeping them alive/motivated to live and the Bucks/Cody/Kenny retweet these guys with an awh gosh thanks message then shill them a $120 Cody windbreaker so that they’re *really* part of the family. It seems like a huge money grab but they’re touting it as this intimate affair where the marks are just as big a part as they are.

They’re also thus far not very different than WWE despite being positioned as an alternative and NOTHING LIKE THE E LMAO. At All In pretty much all the bookers went over, there was a randomly thrown together 2 star women’s match, and a “squeeze everyone on to the show” battle royal. Double or Nothing’s card is almost identical in booking methodology. It’s also full of ex WWE guys.

I honestly am indifferent but the constant smelling of their own farts tips me to side of wanting to see them crash and burn.

P.S. it also was pretty shitty of them to use NJPW and ROH the way they did. Both company’s treated them very well and they fucked over NJPW’s western expansion and used ROH’s money and infrastructure to learn how to produce a show while pretending they did it on their own. That was very not cool

Wrong. All the money is in WWE's TV deals, which are not reflected by ticket sales/PPV buys/etc which are inspired by audience interest. The popularity of wrestling correlates with the drawing power of wrestlers.

>>6869305
I watch whatever wrestling I want. Modern wrestling is shit. Modern wrestling does not draw. I tend to not watch modern wrestling not because of the drawing power, but because I don't like modern wrestling.

yea seethe?

>>6869332
I think all wrestling is for the gays unless it's actual collegiate/olympic wrestling, you faggots watch fake shit and argue about it, that's sad as fuck.

Why is the "drawing" power of wrestling such an important factor to you ? Why does it matter so much to you when you are not personally benefiting from that money?
Also y your logic do you only consume other mass media (TV/music/films) that draw the most money too?

It only matters when trying to evaluate which type of wrestling works the best in a business, financial sense. What type of wrestling was the best for the wrestlers who needed to make a living. I don't consume any other media. Wrestling is the only escapist hobby I have. I garden, work on my vehicles, work out, play basketball, very simple, fulfilling hobbies. I lead a simple as fuck life.

Didn't see that one coming.

that's because you're a mandrama loving loser who takes this shit seriously and acts like an armchair investor while twiddling your limp dick

wrestling is gay as fuck and the sooner you realize it the sooner you'll move out of your parents house

Because, when it inevitably fails, it will once and for all prove that flippy shit doesn't draw dimes. The Meltzers and Kellers of the world, along with the bingo hall fans will finally know that Russo is right and has always been right about what draws money.

maybe Alvarez should ask why he wanted TNA to fail all these years

I dont want it to fail. Wrestling fans are mostly all retards (see: You) to the point that it makes me actually not like wrestling itself anymore
>>
>>6868464

I don’t want it to fail, but I feel like all it’s going to do is hurt promotions I watch while not providing a product I enjoy much. I’d rather Omega was in New Japan than have a new TNA.
>>
>>6868464
Most people against AEW are just shitposters or don't know anything about them. The tranny and the fag could put some people off but just fast forward through their matches like WWE women's matches and it shouldn't be an issue.

I don't really care for AEW. I'm not gonna watch it, but whatever.

What I have a problem with are the Elite/Omega fans that went complete batshit with their shilling of NJPW as the greatest shit ever. Proclaimed themselves as NJPW fans, and then proceeded to drop the promotion as soon as The Elite created their own thing.
You fuckers weren't NJPW fans, you were fans of The Elite and nothing more. If The Elite wasn't involved with AEW you wouldn't give a fuck.

More wrestling companies means more jobs for talent, more jobs for talent means wrestlers will develop faster, wrestlers developing faster means we'll see a better product across the board

>>6869335

This is an underrated post. Only good answer I have seen.
>>
>>6870018
That's a good thing. Actual fans of New Japan don't have to deal with "hairy wrestling" style faggots anymore.

>Barnacles! What could be worse than a company funded by a billionaire with no passion for the business, booked by a self obsessed narcissist who will put himself over at every turn, and with an obsession to sign every talent they can afford to exclusive contracts, weakening the entire industry, all while telling their fans that the talent is lucky to be in the position that they're in?

For the same reason why those "non-WWE promotions can do no wrong" motherfuckers want to see Vince McMahon fail.

I want AEW to fail to prove that smarky workrate promotions with small wrestlers doesn't draw mainstream

>>6868879
No one thinks it’ll be wcw right out of gate. Even AEW members said it’ll take time to build and Tony Khan said he knows they’ll be operating at a loss for at least 5 years. Anyone who thinks it’ll draw 2 million views it’s first couple months are working themselves into a shoot.
