The Master Plan
By Scott Keith on 4th August 2021
Hey Scott, hope you are safe and well. I was reading an article where Vince stated AEW is not competition and he has more guys for him. Do you think Vince is just releasing the talent knowing Tony Khan will sign them and over saturate his roster like WCW did? Vince is a smart man and I have a feeling he is doing the massive releases to save money and watch AEW drown in talent. There is only so much TV time, and slots to go around. I know Tony let's talent work Indy dates to keep them happy, but, I really feel Vince has a master plan. Also, I havr heard one of Vinces negotiating tools is telling talent to go make more money when they can and come back.
If his master plan is to let the competition draw 1.1 million a week on TV and do record buyrates with every PPV, then he's right on track, I guess.
