    i feel for trips.

    and if even half of this stuff is true, i can no longer blame the writers for all the crap we've seen lately.
    You really never could. Everything good or bad has VKM all over it.

    Definitely feel for Haitch, It really seems like VKM would rather destroy his company than let someone else be responsible for making it prosper.

    -OMG, that team name for Asuka & Kairi is awful. Really WWE, really? Like that gives "The Viking Experience" a run for it's money in terms of stupid team names.

    -So Charlotte and Lacey are on the show, but not Becky. Disappointing. Also it's cool that they let Kofi and Xavier stand tall again this week, but it makes Becky getting beaten down yet again last night feel even more underwhelming.

    -I never thought that I'd get tired of seeing Shane on TV, but he's overexposed now imo.

    -Andrade pinning Finn, cool. He's probably not winning MITB (although I hope that he does), but an IC title feud could be a nice consolation prize.




    Overall, a very "meh" show.

    "Destroy?" The old man got a billion-dollar TV deal with a major network for SDL. Trips can't even get NXT to not be a black hole of money. Don't get it twisted, Vince has made some bad missteps over the last few years, but Hunter's not even in the same universe as him when it comes to drawing money.

    Speaking of Black Holes for money.... XFL. Tell me I'm wrong.

    Actually I think that there was a recent report that NXT does make money. Also WWE is losing fans left and right, and their ratings are dropping like a stone. So lets not pretend like the show is GOOD right now.

    Hunter's job in NXT isn't to make money, that's not what it's there for anyway.

    Lars is an idiot but it seems WWE plans for him are cast in stone.

    Which is very funny because a guy like Titus O Neil pretty much got nuked after he playfully grabbed and held Mr McMahon.

Which means they don't necessarily have a whole lot of leverage when negotiating with networks. When wrestling is hot or the promotion has a proven track record, it can go a long way towards getting them better TV deals, but neither of those scenarios are true at the moment.

    That's the precarious position AEW potentially is in right now. They're paying millions for talent in addition to paying for benefits and medical while at the same time running less shows. In order to be a viable business model they NEED to get a very very good TV deal to make up for that. Which they might be able to do. We'll see.
    i don't believe ECW nor WCW paid a network to put them on TV.

    agreed. i mean if i have to either give my shit away for free or pay somebody to take it i'd rather give it for free.

    WCW and ECW are examples of what happens to a wrestling promotion if you don't get on a network at all. TnA paid to get on a network, and it at least allowed them to survive long enough to eventually get a better deal with a better network.

    Point being sure it's better to get paid than to pay a network. But AEW needs to take the best deal it can, and they're not necessarily negotiating with a whole lot of leverage here since wrestling isn't hot and they're not a proven commodity yet. So a network might be able to get AEW to pay them simply because they can. Course, hopefully for AEW that's not the case. Again, they need the best deal they can given their risky business model of paying the workers more with benefits while running less shows plus having an off season.
