        These shitters should really debut on the main roster. 'They need to learn to look at the hardcam' is some moronic cope.

          back in the territory days you still had to have some form of real hard training before you appeared on their programs just to ensure you were about the business and not one to expose it, and that's why people back then were generally talented enough to cover for what they couldn't do
          the point is there should always be a gateway to the main program
          the only thing i fault it for is that this is about production (hardcam, etc) rather than being more emphatical in learning how to actually WORK which is moreso just incentivized by bringing you into the main roster if they think you can work
          but even that is just half the battle because workrate itself doesn't draw the dimes, your charisma does most of that work
          and unfortunately most people just don't have that charisma

    It's reminiscent of 2020-2022 AEW where WWE let a bunch of people go and AEW fell for the "drown them in shit" strategy Vince did with WCW. WWE is probably smarter tho and seems to be more selective in who they're taking in from AEW. IE, Cody's or Haitch's mates.

          >In its original incarnation, NXT was a reality-based television show in which rookies competed to become a star in WWE.
          in its current incarnation, whether you like it or not, it's considered a developmental program NOW, since 2021, and aew is barely beating it since it can't compete with even raw, let alone smackdown

    Turns out creative control isn't everything it's cracked up to be -- sometimes experienced promoters know how to get workers over than the workers do themselves.
    The tricky part was that Vince actively wanted to keep a lot of workers in their places so they wouldn't get too big, especially near the end. But he's gone now.

      yeah, because of people like austin
      vince is a control freak and that's both his blessing and his curse and unfortunately it was killing the company because it was putting a cap on things that shouldn't have had one

        And just to be clear, I'm not ripping on Vince. The man was an innovator.
        But once WWE went public and he had to answer to stockholders, I think he was afraid to rock the boat too much. He always enjoyed goofy stuff, and wrestling needs to be goofy. The problem is that tastes changed in the types of goofiness people wanted to see and Vince wasn't great at changing with them.

    >Announcers have to say "HEY ISN'T HE FROM AE-" to remind people who the frick he even is and get the cheap cross-brand leap pop
    LMAO
    Why the frick is everybody who gets big time over in TNA fricking worthless anywhere else?
    It's only the "TNA didn't capitalize on them" guys who get over elsewhere.

    AEW has a ceiling unfortunately look at Jade and Cody where they were. They were popular but they weren't viewed as larger than life stars. Now since moving to WWE they are seen by a much larger fan base that reaches over internationally. Honestly believe is AEW became a launching pad for WWE it would be beneficial to both companies. Get unknown wrestlers to AEW, feature them, shine them up and then let them reach a wider fan base with WWE

    >Leaving
    Well he didn't have a job there anymore for starters. Do you expect him to pull a George Costanza?
