    AEW is the polar opposite of what NWA is. While that contrast would make for a great rivalry I don't see those promotions gelling together at all. NWA title being a secondary title for Dynamite would suck ass when Nick Aldus is the champion. That guy is a genuine main-event talent.

    I agree with 90% of what you said. Here is why I think it would work.

    Cody was NWA champion and did good business with Aldis and the NWA.

    Why the in ring of AEW is far superior to the NWA, they both have a comic bent to them. Question Mark fits as well in AEW as he does NWA.

    The NWA and AEW are not competition. NWA doesn't have a TV deal.

    The NWA title has a history of floating between promotions. Its history makes it more important than some random title that the AEW could come up with.

    If Turner is fitting the bills it works. What hurt WCW as well was Bischoff had to up the house show dates or add a PPV to the schedule. As he joked it was hard to do 12 PPV's a year let alone add an extra one. Plus as said Thunder became known as a recap show and bad production issues. (plus it over exposed WCW as we know)

    AEW should do the show on a Saturday Night , make it for talent not on TV each week. Do different things with it. 2 , 2 hour shows back to back will over expose the product as Thunder showed us.

    So it's basically Dark. They are going to be in Vince's shoes. They are going to have to buy up some talent to fill those hours.

    Cody did good business with Aldis. Their program heading into All In is amazing. Whoever, there isn't anyone else on the AEW roster that's on Cody's level other than Jericho. Moxley could make for a good program.

    NWA's comedy tends to be regulated to ads. Other than Question Mark the comedy stays away from the ring.

    In one of Cornette's podcasts Dave Lagana told him that 27% of Power's audience comes from AEW Dark. There's crossover with the YouTube shows.

    NWA now having a YouTube show and regular PPVs they host on their own I don't see them using their top title being second banana on another promotion show anymore.

    To me, AEW having 2 hours a week is plenty. If they put out another show, I'll try and watch it but I can't say I agree they need it.

    Great news. It shows TNT's supporting them and a new show means more room for exposure for talent they can't fit on Dynamite.

    They keep using the same talent for Dynamite. There's quite a few guys AEW have on their roster that's going underutilized. I haven't seen much of Kip Sabien, Sonny Kiss, Hybrid 2 on Dynamite or Dark.

    just as long as it doesn't become another WCW Thunder, that's my main concern

    This isn't any worse if you see what Twitch supports with women who paint their breasts on platform and more. Its things like this is why Ninja and others have left the platform because they grew tired of the bullshit.

    Also I haven't watch Impact but Rob as a heel ? This is great , he's playing a Charlie Sheen type heel... "Duhh Winning !"
