      Checked and truthpilled. Every single angle and match he was in, I mentally tuned out, in WWE and now in AEW. The guy is boring as frick and you're an npc if you don't think he's Christian's Jannetty.

      I'm sorry to break the news to you but edge was never a "good" technical wrestler and I say that as someone who likes his career.
      He just isn't. He's tall, he has the looks, he can talk. But even in his youth his matches and his moves mostly sucked like dirty ass
      He can be good working angles or as a heel on promos but that's it
      I don't know why he considers himself a workrate monkey now, he's the miz but taller and aew is the worst place to use someone like him

    There was a bigger drop for Sheamus and Gunther on Raw. The supposed amazing 'banger' that everyone has wanted to see again. Why did hundreads of thousands tune out during that? Somewhere between the two I'm sure we'll find the answer

      On the third hour of a show where viewers usually start tuning out as it gets late. This match also wasn't as heavily built and was one of many tournament matches. WWE also has a much larger viewerbase so fluctuations are expected to have a broader span.

      Best answer so far. He should have beat the piss out of Buddy in about 6 minutes, taken slightly longer to beat Brody, and then a 20 minute match with the Final boss Malakai would have made sense. He's going to look like a geek if he doesn't KILL Malakai after going 30+ minutes, and nobody wants to see that.

      It isn't. He's been in a month's long feud with the House of Black. Probably even longer since they already had a match at the last ppv. He absolutely has a story and he absolutely has a character

          He just wrapped up his entire story with Christian that spanned from the time got there until just a month or so ago. How else do you think stories begin? He's in a rivalry right now. Just because they haven't told a year's long story in two months doesn't mean it's nothing. Even if you want to go as broad as your examples
          >He's finally beat his longtime rival and regained the TNT championship from Christian and is now using his new title as a means to hold open challenges and face all of the new competition he came to AEW for
          Not that difficult

            The original post, since you're having difficulty remembering it.

            >He has no story and no character and he keeps wrestling 20 minute matches. Nobody wants to see 20 minute matches on television.

            No is hyperbole meaning "little". He has no meaningful story, as you yourself admit:
            >He's in a rivalry right now. Just because they haven't told a year's long story in two months doesn't mean it's nothing
            Doing open challenges to face competition is not a compelling storyline or character arc - it's something that has been done for years by a dozen other AEW performers.

            People like you are the reason why AEW is failing and why Copeland is flailing. People like you have Tony's ear and you're all he listens to; meanwhile hundreds of thousands of fans like me are tuning out because the show is boring, formulaic and unimpactful. Not that difficult.

            So we've gone from "no story" to "no compelling story". Compelling of course being completely subjective. So what you're ultimately saying is that you're going to keep moving the goalposts to make sure you've convinced yourself that you're right

            Yeah bud, that's kind of how it works when your share your opinion on a message board. One person says their story is lackluster, not compelling, doesn't engage the audience enough - and the other person responds that they feel the opposite way, and then a discussion takes place.

            Sometimes I wonder just where the line of being fricking moronic and being a lying shill is, and here you are playing Hopscotch

    Hard to be cool when you're old and washed and he doesn't have what it takes to do it. Don't even know what his character even is or what he's doing from week to week. Most memorable moment is feuding with Nick Waynes mother and losing.

      Aside from how old he is, Edge just isn’t booked properly. What made him big in WWE was being this edgy heel that would always go up against the big babyfaces and cheat his way through victories. Think of his iconic Elimination Chamber match. In AEW he’s booked as this boring tweener who tries too hard to be cool whereas back in WWE it just came to him naturally. He needs to be a heel through and through, but then that puts AEW in the spot because Edge is like the only face of the company left after Punk returned to WWE. So Tony has no choice but to keep booking him as a babyface or else risk burying him entirely by making him go full heel, and even then he’d have to go full 2000’s era WWE heel, none of this tame shit heels do nowadays like those boring spots where heels attack Tony. And speaking of Punk, that’s a booking done right. Punk was never a good wrestler, he excels in promos and in character, and is booked solely for his promos and his character. WWE knows how to book them, AEW does not.
      In short, Edge was only ever good as a heel to the main guy, not as a main guy himself, especially not a babyface main guy.

      His looks are fine. He looks completely different but he still has good looks. He looks like some sort of old crazed dude which would work great for heels

    Edge only looks good when he's being carried.

    Tag Team Edge was carried by his partner Christian

    Midcard Edge was carried by his rivals like Eddie Guerrero

    Main Event Edge was carried by Cena

    When Edge is put with someone who is good but not a person who can carry him he gets exposed.
