So I love wrestling culture, history and the Royal Rumble, but I can't be bothered watching Raw or Smackdown. For exactly the same reasons as everybody else.

* Too fucking long
* Don't treat me like I'm an actual legitimate simpleton, just because I'm a wrestling fan
* HATE the camerawork, with 16 quick cuts for every single move, so you can never enjoy anybody's techniques or spot the botches or get a sense of the impact
* Let the wrestlers get out there with a mic in their hand and just talk and read/react to the crowd in real time, for fucks sakes. That's a BIG part of the job, reading the crowd and working the mic! Let them talk, instead of woodenly reciting cringeworthy memorised speeches that some overworked writer knocked out in 5 minutes backstage, 45 seconds before the wrestler walked out to the ring.



All that being said - is it worth investing in AEW?

I haven’t watched WWE in a long time so I can’t speak to the production and camerawork comparisons but if you like pro wrestling give AEW a shot. Some of it may be hard to follow at first because they spread stories out among televised and their youtube shows, Being the Elite included, but really you could read breakdowns of the YouTube stuff and stick to the televised shows and be fine imo.

Basically the crowds are awesome, the matches are great and it’s a hell of a lot of fun to watch. It just feels like it’s made for pro wrestling fans by pro wrestling fans.
