I could care less about ratings and the turnstile count at Wembley. What i do see a problem for AEW that they are not learning from yet is attendance. Why is TK cramming so much events in so little time? All In, All Out, Grand Slam, Wrestledream in just over a month?!? Who on what board/committee has any kind of evidence and statistics that would make sense from an attendance viewpoint? Is it that hard for TK (and whoever else figures this out, if anyone else) to look at a damn calendar and just simply say “1 ppv every other month, 1 tv special in between them”. Does Warner/Discovery have input and info we're not seeing that justifies it?
I want WWE, NJPW & AEW to be successful. I want AEW to learn from their mistakes and mistakes of others. What i don't want is to see more tarped off sections on Dynamite then not. The new car smell is off AEW. It's really Time to grow.
WBD definitely has input, and currently the betting line is that AEW ends up on Max with 12 PPVs per year and a wad of fat cash. I certainly see the issues there but if talent gets paid more, good for them.
