AEW will take a crowbar to WWE's knee.

While they don't need a team of writers for the short term, they'd benefit a lot just by hiring a continuity and/or storyboard writer since that is a huge glaring weakness WWE has when it comes to their writing and long term planning post-Attitude Era.

NXT pretty much just has 1 main writer, a few people that help out the writer, and wrestlers helping pitch stuff whenever needed. NJPW follows a similar system but with 2 head writers and more priority towards long term planning. Both result in shows being a lot more focused than WWE's main roster shows where its impossible to do any real long term stuff because of Vince and continuity gets routinely ignored.

erickman 01-17-2019 06:16 AM

how are they going to do a show without writers, they so need to take over impact for there backstage people.

Fignuts 01-17-2019 06:23 AM

I'm a bit worried about that approach. Giving the guys working for you that much freedom and control, while not having a Vince type to definitively approve or deny stuff without question sounds very reminiscent of WCW.

erickman 01-17-2019 06:33 AM

it would be worse wcw had writers and bookers, now this looks like it has a money mark and spot monkeys, I want to see the tv deal.

Mr. Nerfect 01-17-2019 06:55 AM

This is how wrestling works best, guys. There’s a creative direction and guys are free to move within it within reason. Like, isn’t this what people have been craving for years? A booker and some authentic promos and organic gimmicks?

Fignuts 01-17-2019 06:57 AM

We'll see. Not saying it can't work, but that's a slippery slope.

Yes

Simple Fan 01-17-2019 11:54 AM

I actually agree with Noid on this one. No writers is a good move.

XL 01-17-2019 12:33 PM

WWE’s most lauded period was written by 3-4 people, not a panel of writers.

Fignuts 01-17-2019 03:11 PM

The lack of writers is fine. You don’t need them that badly. But I don’t think you can deny that part of wwe’s success was due to having a guy like Vince with the balls to tell these larger than life egos, “This is how we’re doing it, like it or not”.

Like I said, it could end up working out. But it also has dangerous potential. We’ll just have to wait and see how it plays out.

erickman 01-17-2019 03:17 PM

yeah you need some not none writers. I am thinking there tv deal won't start for a while so they will wait till closer to tv till they try to get the backstage people.

Mr. Nerfect 01-17-2019 06:04 PM

There is going to be creative direction, guys. Theyíre looking to be a TV show. There will be bulletpoints, time restrictions and talent is not going to be able to go out there and try and literally suck their own dick as a segment. Unless Joey Ryan gets hired. This is how wrestling worked FOREVER until Vince hired a team of writers to script everything.

Iím actually kind of gobsmacked as to how many people on here are opposed to this.

Ultra Mantis 01-17-2019 06:21 PM

The Elite showed up at Joey Ryan's promotion last night and did a bit with him to close the show, they teased signing him to AEW but joked that his release from Lucha Underground won't be granted until 2028.

He's definitely going to be part of this thing one way or another.

Mr. Nerfect 01-17-2019 06:47 PM

That’s a blow to my excitement.

slik 01-17-2019 06:58 PM

Joey Ryan is entertaining imo

Emperor Smeat 01-17-2019 08:14 PM

According to the Observer, a rumored partnership between Impact Wrestling and AEW likely won't happen any time soon or at all due to issues it could cause for a potential AEW-NJPW partnership.

Main reason is Impact is currently partnered with AAA while NJPW is partnered with CMLL and NJPW doesn't like to work with companies who have deals with or are their partner's rivals. Its a big reason why they've been hesitant on partnering with AEW since it could negatively affect ROH the most.

Mr. Nerfect 01-17-2019 08:40 PM

TNA also sucks hairy testicle sacks.

They do fights in forests to music videos and have lost even more of that 10% of that audience they have retained. They had Okada and made him Okato. Itís just not a product anyone can reasonably trust to be good exposure.

For now Monday around noon is when the next Beinv The Elite will drop. They've already started to set up stuff for Double or Nothing.

Mr. Nerfect 01-18-2019 06:06 PM

Reading between the lines:

* In Jericho's podcast he talked about Omega like he was basically AEW. Unfortunately, he talked about Ibushi like he was New Japan. It doesn't necessarily mean that things aren't being worked on and wheels aren't being greased, but if I had to guess where Ibushi goes, I'd suggest he's staying with New Japan and maybe doing guest spots with AEW, which could still be cool, but might not make him the most popular guy in New Japan.

* In JR's podcast with Jim Cornette, which seems like it was recorded a while ago, JR either misspoke or made a Freudian slip. He said "I"ve been affiliated with..." which he then corrected, but didn't edit out, to be "associated with." There have been lots of rumors and some pretty good indicators that JR is going to be doing something with them, and that's just more to stoke the fire.

* Maria's Twitter spasms seem to suggest that she Mike Bennett have been very appreciative of their time in WWE and that the internet doesn't know anything. I don't know why you would be, but that would seem to lean against them leaving. I can't say I'm disappointed by Mike Bennett not jumping ship. It is a shame about Maria in the skimpy gear again.

Fignuts 01-18-2019 08:44 PM

WWE probably paid for Bennet’s rehab, as well as whatever medical bills came from Maria’s pregnancy. All the while on paid leave.

I’d be pretty appreciative of that.

Mr. Nerfect 01-18-2019 09:12 PM

Oh yeah. You probably wouldn't tell that employer to fuck off.

Lol, I have a friend that hates wrestling that still busts out WCW/nWo Revenge.

Honestly, video games are a great way to get the brand out. Game shops are still frequently visited and by an increasingly wide demographic, and a game is going to be displayed and people are going to pass it like a poster every day. Game reviews that praise it are going to comment on how the wrestling itself stacks up to WWE. If you do online PPVs, you can include a code that lets you review an old PPV for free, or something.

Those WCW and WWF 1998-2000 games by THQ for N64 were great, and the first couple of Smackdown Playstation games were really good too.

And as a condition for said game, one of the AEW talent will have to use Diggity Dog as their entrance theme.

rez 01-20-2019 01:00 AM

There's never ever going to be a good licensed wrestling game again. There will never ever be a college bball/fball game.

Evil Vito 01-20-2019 01:20 AM

Not with that attitude.

Mr. Nerfect 01-20-2019 01:42 AM

Retro is coming back. What's old gets new again and gets called new, which fits the AEW aesthetic. They could very easily do a retro-style game that would stand-out and get a fair bit of attention. Especially considering Nintendo's next classic release is logically going to be the N64 Classic.
