Can we have a genuine discussion?

Can we have a genuine discussion? Back when AEW started, people criticized WWE for having a bloated roster and not utilizing the talent properly. Now, we have AEW doing the same. What can they do to fix that? It seems that any show apart from Dynamite is seen as a bandaid fix.

      Obviously not. They are as deranged as as everyone on the board says they are and here is the proof.

      Wheels refers to the lower half of his body as "slopdown", he's just confirming he's a crippled homosexual when he posts this. Very sad.

    Tina needs to drastically reduce the size of the roster but he isn't willing to do that. So nothing can be done about it. It literally can't be fixed.

      Yeah, Tony's priority unfortunately isn't putting on a good show with a small and highly focused roster, it's being viewed as the protagonist and savior of pro wrestling, which necessitates he hires a bunch of guys and puts food on their table even if he doesn't know what to do with them or it comes at the cost of the product through massive bloat.
      For his purposes of like, four hours of primary weekly television, you really don't need any more than a roster of 50.

    If ROH gets a good deal that should help a lot and he'd need them. If they don't then do some cuts.

      He already turned down a deal for ROH because he’s a fricking moron

        The CW deal could still be on the table. The NXT deal does not have the standard exclusivity clause.

        He's clearly scared that nobody wants dynamite and is trying to package roh as a deal

    WWE still has a bloated roster even after shedding all that dead weight, AEW's problem was slurping up almost all of the shitters WWE let go. Vince was right in the end.

    I think the way that came about for AEW was that they needed a roster just to begin with. They had their few key names but they needed bodies. So they signed up a bunch of people to use, which they did at the beginning. Then they made more key signings and those guys took up so some spots that would've gone to the filler guys and rinse and repeat until we're at where we are now with AEW having a pretty solid roster of names between both its men and women's divisions. Only problem is a lot of those earlier signings are still there. It seems many are being phased out slowly or at least as their contracts come up though. Like Ethan Page was reportedly passed up on renewing recently. And I can see that being the case more and more as time goes. It's not like they're all crammed onto the shows so it's not really an issue until you look at their roster page. There's always the ROH side of it too where it's good to have guys in reserve where he could send them there or something

      Yeah and it seems that morale is at an all time low now because of it. Any time you release shitters it blows up as well because they are seen as the "saviours".

      Based logical take.
      I've watched TNA / Impact for many years now and they were always creatively at their best when they didn't have a bloated roster full of "name" wrestlers and instead had a couple of big name and had to grow their own talent.

      I feel AEW is similar to that. I think they're turning the corner again now but the product seemed better before Tony bought RoH and spread his focus too thin

    AEW started at the perfect point where WWE was so exhaustingly bad to watch that people were DESPERATE for a decent alternative (face Roman's top dog gimmick being one of the main reasons and that is undeniable)
    Now that WWE is better and Tony has booked like a fricking idiot for years people are giving up on it. It's quite simple. AEW is filled with potential to beat WWE but it's managed like shit.

    You know some of us were calling out every hypocritical thing GAYEW has done along the way. Some of us have told you since before it even existed what its problems and mistakes in the future would be.
    You didnt listen and you got three garbage shows fill3d with ex wwe guys and an overhyped overpriced game they are still releasing dlc for

    As another anon said, he currently cannot bring himself to do necessary things in terms of cinching in a more concise roster number—whether it be due to fear of hurt feelings/his or their ego/combos of both, the place is at a point stagnancy precisely because of how its manager is unable to grow as a professional in the field.

    There’s tons of dead weight they could easily release.

    Does AEW pay them per appearance? If so it would justify the giant roster and people taking months off for no reason.

      I've heard that they have both an annual pay and a pay per appearance. Many AEW wrestlers also wrestle in the indies by the way, which make their booking uneasy, so these are mostly the many many many jobbers.

    If he wants to pay guys to not work I really don’t care. Looking at tonight’s ppv I don’t see a single relevant player left off the card, and it’s still 3 matches too long.

    No, because any constructive criticism of AEW sends the AEW fanboys into a screaming rage. They are incapable of a genuine discussion. It's just whining and "B-But WWE!!" whenever you try to point out things AEW could fix to make the promotion better.

      First post was literally "slopdown was cancelled" because they always view anything that isn't total praise as bad faith. It's impossible to have a genuine talk at this point it feels like
