You know we give him a lot of grief but I imagine it is pretty disheartening to put on the best wrestling show ever every 3-4 days and still get trounced in the ratings every time. Ungrateful fans!

I’m curious to see how these television deal negotiations go for AEW. I’ve long thought that WWE could very realistically make a play for those slots themselves. Whether with something like NXT Global on Wednesday nights and Level Up on Fridays or with a relaunched WCW. Triple H having more power now makes that ever slightly more likely.

The downside to WWE making a play is how that affects USA/FOX relations. They’re paying a lot of money for what they’re getting and may not want WWE going out and diverting resources to yet another network. But the argument could be made by WWE that expansion helps them all and that the wrestling programming is already there, so they might as well take it over and make it as sponsor-friendly as possible.

WWE has the freedom to low-ball AEW on the price. FOX and USA might not like that, but could also receive auxiliary programming as part of their deals (an FS1 series, etc.), and if it’s something like NXT that has got a viewership of around 660k or whatever, that penetration might not be as threatening to FOX and USA if WWE signs a package deal with Warner Bros Discovery.

Or is WWE very happy with AEW just sucking over there and making them look good by comparison?

Insert Skinner meme about the fans being wrong.

What is it that The Elite’s stans used to say about Jim Cornette? “Out of touch?” I don’t know how you have ratings and ticket sales this tepid and claim to have a finger on the pulse.

AEW has NEVER been that not. 1.4 million for wrestling is not a great number, and I will not back down from that. You should be able to throw out a net and snag that many people even tangentially interested in this shit.

If all the talent that apparently want out of AEW get out, WWE finds themselves in a similar situation to AEW. They already have enough talent. Is it worth it signing Buddy Murphy and Andrade back to deals to…what? Job to Seth Rollins or Gunther?

I wonder if this affects NXT, Level Up and all that. The current USA Network show could use a bit of help in terms of star presence and story-driven stuff. Doing a program where Black and Murphy return to NXT and begin a rivalry could be something. Throw in Andrade and Zelina. I guess you could have them all feud with each other, but that being Triple H’s response to The House of Black could be pretty funny. Black, Andrade, Buddy Murphy, R-Truth, Zelina, Carmella & Corey Graves as the top faction in NXT. Book it.

No matter how hard Tiny and the Dubbalos try to spin WWE being scared of them, I think WWE could give 2 shits about AEW. Triple H may not be as cavalier in not being worried in the slightest like Vince was, in that Vince even said he was going to give AEW more talent by firing more "game changers", but aside from that, AEW is a dud.

Tiny is such a good Booker that even with a bloated roster, he books TWO Title matches on his show with zero build, where NEITHER challenger is even a part of his AEW roster. I mean, you can't make this shit up lol.

Yeah, you’re not wrong. WWE went from offering Mike Bennett and Maria Kanellis $500k apiece to giving Matt Riddle $400k when it became apparent AEW was a big fat nothing. When it was an unknown quantity, there was a possible threat of a billionaire-funded promotion that could give talent a place to work that wasn’t WWE. Then they opened with a Battle Royal featuring Glacier for a World Title shot.

The more talent that AEW has and can’t book, the more miserable people there are and the more WWE benefits off their mess. It may not be WWE’s prerogative to lighten their burden.

I don't care how much I like wrestling, I will never watch Rampage because that's a fucked time slot and I either have shit to do or forget about it entirely.

Also, just your semi-regular reminder that even if the news draws more people, it doesn’t necessarily need to cut into other programming. People can watch the news before or after wrestling, check their phones for updates or look outside.
