    Why wouldn't it last? If punk fans and DB Fan's start watching AEW a lot are going to get invested in the show really why wouldn't they?

Asuka is no doubt a top women's talent but what made her Asuka was the undefeated streak, now just about all of that mystique is now gone because of bad booking decisions. Not saying she can't take a loss but she now takes too many. Those two examples are talents whose talents are deserving of the push who are still peak talents without the undefeated streaks however once Bill took the L his only draw is nostalgia and the momentum of the ultra push that the masses didn't realize was a push and just thought he was just that dang good.
    the thing is he didn't just reach a very high status, he reached a status that only a handful of guys in the industry have.

    i don't think i 100% follow what you're getting at there but since you mentioned joe i think he's a good xample. let me start by saying i'm a big joe fan. the 1st indy show i ever attended was in 2003, i went because the main event was joe vs aj styles(ended up being aj vs kazarian due to joe injury at a roh show). that said if you give samoa joe the same push and booking as goldberg would he reach that status?? sadly i don't think he would. not due to a lack of talent, just the world we live in.

    that sounds like the xact type of thing he should be avoiding. the g-1 is brutal.

    WWE is entrenched in the public consciousness, Vince is still an incredible businessman, and while his booking preferences are often painfully mediocre compared to their potential, he’s always going to have top talent and production values, and a monstrously prolific tape library. He’s going to make about 1 genuinely solid feud for every two bad to forgettable ones he makes just because of his infrastructure advantages.
    not disagreeing with anything you said, just saying as a consumer that library isn't worth a shit on peacock.

    There is talk of debuting him in All Out PPV if he follows through and signs. So he can come out for the God Pop.
    god please no. i have no desire to see punk live out his mma fantasies on tv.

    And there are rumors that WWE want Strowman back (???)

    It also sounds like AEW have all but signed CM Punk.

    That's a massive, massive get. If they manage they get him and Brian, then AEW have the two biggest pro-wrestling stars of the modern era not named Cena or Reigns.

    It's a complete game changer and it puts AEW in a very, very strong position going forward.

    I guess he's going to face Reigns.

    Meaning Reigns will keep that title until Survivor Series (sighs).

    I love Roman's Reign (pun fully intended) but it can get a bit stale if we know he's not going to lose to anyone until later in the year.

    Well, yeah, but we knew he wasn't going to lose to Cena at Summerslam anyway, as Cena has a TV series to film. Oh, and of course, we will probably get a few teases of Big E cashing in the briefcase in the lead-up to Survivor Series.
    Watching television is not an activity.

    You really think he'll drop to the Rock? Rock is neck deep in hollywood projects to even have a fluff reign with the belt.

    There's no chance of Reigns losing before he's face Cena, Rock, and Brock

    I don't think Punk is doing a MMA gimmick in AEW. Since he's 0-1 there. (His 2nd loss was removed as that guy tested positive for something)

    September 2021 was a hard month. 1st Norm McDonald died and then we learned Disney is ruining Indiana Jones in 2022. Just a hard month to take. Hopefully the film tanks.

    I admit I did laugh at Khan's signings for awhile. Due to him signing 2 guys in roles no one really believes they fit (as announcers) and the entire thing looked like a waste of money.

    But with reports claiming Punk has signed with the company....he signed 2 of the big free agents he needed. He got 2 stars and props to that.

    So this is money spent wisely for sure.

    i don't mean as a gimmick, i mean what he does in the ring.

    also that's kind of hilarious in an ironic kind of way. the straight edge guy becomes joke of the mma community by getting his ass kicked by a jobber that tests positive for weed. ufc then brings jobber back because they don't care about weed anymore.
