It may seem like AEW is a pretty hot wrestling promotion for right now but make no mistake about it… their popularity will die down sometime soon and they will just be another wrestling business going out of business. Kind of like what happened to WCW and ECW. When WCW and ECW started out, they started off pretty hot in the beginning but people stopped caring later on. I predict the same will happen to AEW. Go out of business like all the others. TNA Impact is still around but even they failed as a wrestling company due to different owner changes.
When AEW first started, I’ve been liking them for a little while… I’ve been with them at the start but then bailed and stopped watching. Why? I don’t know… it seems to me that AEW is trying to rip off WWE of what WWE did in the 90’s during the Attitude Era. I’m also amazed at how all these former WWE personalities that are in AEW now, talking so much negative shit about WWE and Vince. It’s like what? So many people claim there is no WWE vs. AEW war but that’s not what I’m seeing. AEW’s attacks and shots at WWE just won’t stop and they just continue. While most former WWE personalities are in AEW talking shit about WWE and Vince, there is one former WWE star that has nothing but positive things to say about WWE and Vince… that guy is none other than Aleister Black who is now Malakai Black in AEW. The split with WWE and Aleister Black was amicable, there’s no bad blood at all. I think Aleister was released due to the pandemic?
Anyhow, like with the title of this topic says, yes, “WWE will always be king”. Yes, it is true. There can be other wrestling promotions but they will never overtake WWE. WWE is a monster and a very powerful company. Yes, the WWE’s ratings may be way down as of this point but WWE is a giant. AEW is here ’cause of WWE, whether you want to admit it or not. Tony Khan the owner of AEW admits he is a fan of WWE himself and many former WWE guys working for his company.
I stopped watching AEW ’cause even they can get pretty bad with the storylines and matches, they are no better… and the music themes for their stars are pretty awful.
Anyhow, WWE maybe struggling in the ratings and all but they’ll figure out a way to get back on top again. I continue to support and watch WWE ’cause I like them better to be honest.
Wrestling fans wanna whine, cry and bitch about how awful WWE is but they continue to watch anyways. I continue to watch ’cause I enjoy it. People complain about how WWE isn’t wrestling anymore which is a load of bull. Yes wrestling is still around and WWE still puts on good matches here and there. I continue to watch WWE ’cause I respect all the performers, I respect what they all do. I respect Vince too ’cause he’s the one that gave us wrestling in the mainstream. I’ll admit that I’m not too thrilled of his booking and writing like most but Vince is a genius and a legend.
I just like enjoying wrestling. I’m not the one that will whine and cry everything about it. Wrestling is just a show and I think a lot of people take it way too serious. Just wanted to give out my thoughts on everything going on in the wrestling industry lately. It’s all crazy.
