        WWE draws money from people by entertaining them and then it uses that money to continue to entertain them.

        WWE fans don't care about wrestling. They care about promos and winning the financial results. The actual wrestling part is when they check their phones and go to the bathroom.

            WWE fans love "sports entertainment", they don't love 'pro wrestling'. In fact, WWE as a company and their moronic audience are ashamed of calling themselves wrestlign fans. They rather think they are a discount Disney or something.

    >If you listen to Ospreay and Moné talk about why they signed with AEW, a few clear advantages appear to arise. Some of it is similar to what WCW had in the past.

    >For starters, Khan always seems to go the extra mile on the financial terms, and like WCW, AEW isn’t reliant on downside guarantees. And you are getting that money for a much, much lighter schedule, as AEW tapes on Wednesday and Saturday. While WWE’s schedule is far less grueling than in the past, top stars still have to make the weekly house show loops that don’t really exist in AEW.

    >AEW’s reduced schedule means talent can be with their families more, and Khan can give international stars such as Ospreay the option to remain living in the UK with his girlfriend and their stepson. Ospreay said on the “Talk is Jericho” podcast that the offers from AEW and WWE were “night and day.”

    >“Even in differences of what they were offering and what AEW was offering, AEW was way better,” Ospreay said. “The scheduling, everything about AEW was completely the right option for me. It was always, you can go be a superstar in WWE and famous, but it’s not as good of pay, and it’s not as kind of a schedule. I respect everyone there doing it, but it’s not for me.”

    >It brings me to something Moné — who has mentioned going back to WWE eventually — brought up often last week: AEW affords her the chance to take her revolution “global.” What she means is that, when you sign with AEW — unlike in WWE — you also have much greater freedom to work with other companies. It means you work with New Japan and CMLL in Mexico or pop into GCW and other independent promotions. For Ospreay and Okada, it allow them to keep a small tether to the promotion they left. Those relationships also allowed talents to get a taste of AEW and work with Khan before becoming free agents. AEW also runs a stadium show in the UK with All In.

    I don't understand how this person and Dave thinks WWE has to change its entire operation to accomodate Will Ospreay.

    If he wants less dates and to live in the UK, then AEW it is. WWE just has to take the L and move on. They aren't getting rid of house shows and letting unproven draws get Lesnar schedules while living overseas. Its just not going to happen.

    Essentially Tony wouldn’t allow himself to get outbid, and doesn’t have to worry about actually turning a profit so he’s free to offer whatever he wants. In fact I wouldn’t be surprised if WWE is fully aware of that, and went back with a few counter offers to drive the price up even more knowing that Tony would match or exceed the offer. Nick Khan used to be a big time agent, he knows how this shit works.

    • 4 weeks ago

      Its this. Ospreay and Okada know they aren't draws in WWE right now, so they either go to NXT or they go to AEW and come back when they have some mainstream identity. So WWE keeps the relationship strong with them by firing a few fake counter offers to help them milk Tony.

      Most AEW stars are taking Tony for an absolute ride. Remember these wrestlers who Tony thinks are his friends took advantage of his dying mother to milk a few extra thousand from him. Zero respect for him or his wallet.

    Dwayne isn't going to be around forever and fans aren't will eventually start to question things a bit more. Right now everyone is buying 'WWE is red hot' but even the hardcore drone can't name 3 things that are red hot about the product. It's all ticket sales and ratings, but their ratings are worse than they were before covid and the only genuine draw is a part timer who will be gone in a few weeks.

      No, they would have been a game changer in 2021 with Punk and Dbry. Now it's a post Punk world where Tony is just throwing money desprsgly trying to make ratings and not realizing that putting his company more into the red is never a good thing. They are making the same mistake TNA and WCW did thinking that having outside money means being in the red is irrelevant

      • 4 weeks ago
        Anonymous

        Tony is doing the equivalent of signing the best 11 offensive linemen while ignoring QB, WR, RB and TE. You can only have 5 on the field, 6-7 in a jumbo set. Who's running the offense? Who's moving the ball down the field? MJF had the title for the year, gets injured and drops it - and now AEW fans are fantasy booking the next 4-5 champions and don't even mention the poor guy.

        >"Swerve should drop the title to Ospreay at All In, maybe have Jay White take it off Joe then drop it to Swerve at Double or Nothing!"

        AEW fan now recognizes it's not possible to have 13 different "Top Guys", all presented as "Top Guys", but never winning the Top Title. So that's progress, I guess. The next step is realizing Kingston, Roddy and Christian shouldn't have titles with all this high-priced and/or younger talent around. This isn't WWE putting the belt on Great Khali, it makes sense your top guys would be de-throning each other regularly.

    AEW added tens of millions in additional payroll and fewer people are watching it than before Tony backed up the Brinks truck. There's a non-zero chance that Tony personally commissioned this article. Tony gave Assplay a bunch of money and he had the lowest rated segment a couple of weeks ago.

            Raw is moving to a service with more domestic subscriptions than the USA Network has. You might have had a point if you said that only Smackdown was going to see a decline. NXT is also going to have a lot more available viewers thanks to their CW move. Tony had a chance to expand his company's overall reach by putting ROH on the same network, but he inexplicably turned down their offer in favor of a subscription site that no one uses.

            USA has more than Netflix and CW is trash that no one watches and might even be in less homes because it's not on as much cable boxes and has less tower coverage.

    WWE is complete trash and AEW is leagues better.

    But it literally doesn't matter. It's like Star Wars, people will eat that slop up no matter what alternative you have.

    LMFAO PigRovert is gripping so hard today. Nobody outside of AEW fans care about any of these signings, as evident by the fact that AEW STILL can't get a milly

      Sasha's debut was carried entirely by a 5 minute Sheldon overrun, too.
