While the differences between the two companies are many and diverse, one thing that sticks out as obvious to me is how they treat their fans. AEW has the very logical philosophy of making the home crowd happy, while Vince and Co seem almost pathological in their desire to piss off home fans by having hometown babyfaces lose at every opportunity. It's one of those things that always stands out to me and plenty of others.
Well Colt Cabana is getting murdered in Chicago next week, but that's for a specific storyline purpose. But yes, absolutely true otherwise.
