      AEW's normal state is ice cold and dying. You don't want AEW going back to normal. Also, drawing 4k people before signing Ospreay, Okada, and Mone and drawing 4k people after signing Ospreay, Okada, and Mone is disastrous. Tony spent all those millions and what did he get in return?

            Nah, the cope is pretending like Forbes' valuation was legitimate. AEW is a money-losing company with no prospect of making money at any point in the future. Its actual valuation is 0.

            Don't know where this evaluation came from, sounds like Meltzer Math at work! Money spent doesnt equal value if you are failing to get out more than you are putting in, this is very much AEW's position right now, if Tony is comfortable with the level of cash the company is hemorrhaging right now and he has enough income from his dad to support it and he's happy then all is well as long as that remains the status quo

      That's kind of the problem. For the amount of money the talent and production costs, 5k (at best) isn't going to cut it. Dynamite was selling 7k with a less bloated roster in 2022 every week

        Here's the thing, though. Yes it will. Because live gate isn't their primary revenue stream.

            What makes you think it's inevitable? AEW is declining so badly that it literally can't hit 900k or a milly anymore, nothing Tony does pops the ratings, the whole company is moribund. AEW divorcing itself from BR Live is also a bad sign for their future with WBD. Not to mention WBD is a financial dumpster fire right now and they'll be looking to cut costs. AEW has never been more disposable than it is now.

            >What makes you think it's inevitable?
            Because I haven't seen a single one of these media rights deals not end with a new deal being signed and the amount of money being significantly higher than the last deal. Sometimes stuff moves around, but it never gets less money than before.
            >AEW is declining so badly
            Raw and SmackDown declined since their last deals were signed and they both got deals from USA and Netflix respectively.
            > can't hit 900k or a milly anymore
            NXT never gets anywhere close to these numbers (and regularly does worse numbers than Dynamite) and it got a deal from CW.
            >Not to mention WBD is a financial dumpster fire right now and they'll be looking to cut costs.
            The position WBD is in makes something like AEW, which'll be relatively cheap for them and provide consistent ratings in a stable timeslot 52 weeks a year MORE compelling, not less.

          It's not primary but it's still important. WWE made $62MM from live events in one quarter last year, which came from an average of ~10k tickets sold per show. That 62MM was 15% of their overall revenue. And considering how top heavy WWE's media deals are, you have to figure AEWs live shows are more than 15% of their total revenue.

            Yeah, it's important and they do need to get these houses up, but AEW is never gonna live or die on their live gates, they're gonna live or die on media rights. If they were to do 5k twice a week, sprinkle in some higher houses once a month or so for PPVs and high-end Dynamites, toss in Wembley once a year, their live business would be just fine and easily carried by their TV money.

            Yeah, I said if. I know they need to get the houses up, I'm not arguing that.

            It's at 40k half a year out, man. It's gonna do pretty close to what it did last year.
            >Outside of Revolution, they're underperformed too
            Have they? WrestleDream was disappointing, but Full Gear did 12k, World's End did 10k, Dynasty is in a smaller building, but it'll probably fill that building.

      The metro population is 4.3 million so, I'm beggin ya, don't tell me they should have waited more than 3 months before coming back. If AEW can't pull 5K in the Canadian equivalent of LA or NY, it's unironically over.

      I will never understand this stupid ass snide comment about hardcams - you don't even have to watch WWE, just watch AEW or TNA and you'll see how Americans/Canadians work matches. They suplex and dive and punch in certain directions, if they're going to put someone in the corner and chop their chest, it's the side with the best camera shot. Go watch Stardom and see how during the quiet spots, the girls outside the ring will start slapping the mat to get the crowd involved. Even in AAA/CMLL, they work completely different corners, they work at a different pace, the refs count different, the crowds are different, the commercial breaks are different, everything is completely different.

      AEW/WWE tell stories differently, and the wrestlers have different movesets, but for most of the rest, there's almost a complete overlap. Judging by the fact that the consensus opinion of Okada right now is he looks like Just Another Guy, despite being one of the top paid acts in all of Pro Wrestling, then yeah, he probably could have used some time in NXT.
