So last night on ppv, I watched the very first AEW ppv called “Double or Nothing” which took place at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas. That’s the venue where a lot of UFC ppv’s were held at.
For a long while now as you all know, AEW is a new wrestling company that just got put in business and their very first ppv, “Double or Nothing” has been creating a lot of buzz in the wrestling world. I couldn’t resist this one and had to see it for myself. I just wanted to see how different they do things and yes, they are way different than other wrestling companies out there.
“Double Or Nothing” really was worth the $50 ’cause I thought the show was fucking awesome all the way through. I wasn’t bored one bit. It was phenomenal and everybody put on a great show. If you didn’t watch it then you really missed out ’cause if you love “professional wrestling”, you’ll see exactly that. AEW is exploding in the wrestling scene ’cause WWE stopped giving us wrestling years ago. WWE calls their brand “sports entertainment” and it’s more family friendly. AEW is more suitable for people that are older.
AEW wrestling really is a breath of fresh air. They gave us true pro wrestling and they called it “wrestling”. I enjoyed every match last night and wasn’t bored one bit. Even the pre-show matches and women’s division matches were really good.
Of course, the best matches of the night last night were The Young Bucks vs. Lucha Bros., Cody Rhodes vs. Dustin Rhodes and Chris Jericho vs. Kenny Omega. Those three matches would come down as classics years from now. For a long while now, The Young Bucks, Cody Rhodes and Kenny Omega has been creating a lot of buzz in the wrestling community and I can see why. After seeing those guys wrestle last night for the first time, I was blown away. They really are incredibly talented and I’m glad they went to AEW instead of WWE. Speaking of WWE, that company tried to sign The Young Bucks and Kenny Omega but they weren’t interested in working with WWE so they went to AEW instead. Smart move ’cause WWE wouldn’t have used them right anyway, ya know?
Last night had some shocking appearances by Awesome Kong, Bret The Htman Hart and Dean Ambrose (who went under the name of Jon Moxley in AEW). They were big surprises for sure and I never saw them coming.
Some of you may ask is AEW at war with WWE? Oh yes, absolutely they are ’cause before the Cody vs. Dustin match, Cody took out a sledgehammer from under the ring and smashed Triple H’s throne with it at the top of the ramp. That was sending a clear message to Triple H and the McMahon’s so of course they are at war with WWE. Do you see what’s going on here? Fans and the wrestlers themselves want to see “wrestling” make a comeback since we’ve haven’t seen that in a long time. That’s why AEW is here ’cause they want to bring us “wrestling”.
Last night was an exciting show and I thought Tony Khan (owner of AEW) did a great job with “Double or Nothing”. I’m probably gonna continue to watch AEW ’cause I’m a new fan. I’ll probably watch their next ppv and I’ll watch them whenever they get on TNT network on cable TV.
Vince McMahon should take note, though. This is what we all want to see is “wrestling” but Vince doesn’t get it yet. Now that AEW is here, Vince is gonna do all he can to compete with them so I hope Vince is ready. Could AEW take over WWE’s spotlight? Yes, I believe they could. Wrestling fans all over America are getting fed up at the way Vince has been running WWE and now that AEW is here, I can see a lot of them jumping ship.
In the future, I can see even more former WCW and WWE talent getting signed to AEW. I can see more current stars leaving WWE and TNA for AEW. I hope Vince is ready for this.
Will Hulk Hogan ever sign a contract to AEW? Who knows. He’s currently back in contract with WWE but I can see Hulk going to AEW in the future, sure.
AEW is a pretty new company and they got a lot to do ahead of us. They announced the AEW Championship and I’m sure they’ll create more championships in the future. I’m sure they’ll have tag team belts, a belt for the cruiser weights, they’ll have a belt for the women’s division and all that stuff. I’m sure we’re gonna get cage matches soon. All this stuff will be coming. It takes time ’cause they are a new company.
Yeah, AEW is about to take over the world and they are about to change wrestling forever. Time to move over WWE. Still doesn’t mean I’ll give up on WWE, though. I’ll support both AEW and WWE.
Glad I watched it last night!
