The WWE product has always been unwatchable for me... Really miss the old WCW. This new AEW getting there though. I watch it every Wednesday night on TNT. Here's the banner image for their next pay-per-view:

My feelings on it are pretty similar to my feelings on current WWE; certain characters and stories are appealing to me, others not nearly so much.

The major difference is polish - WWE has their product so polished it's antiseptic and unwatchable. And the amount of TALK. WWE is clogged up with WAY too much talk, and the ratings on FOX are dismal for the two above reasons.

AEW starts the action immediately and keeps TALK and promos to a minimum. Almost like someone in charge there knows the viewers tune in for ACTION. Not a bunch of yap-yap bullshit. AEW is a LOT better product if you value substance over BS crap.

The wrestling performance is better too. The AEW workers call the moves as the match goes on, not like in WWE where every move, every step, is scripted and rehearsed.

Have you watched NXT at all? Quite a different vibe from Raw or Smackdown, I'm sure due to much less Vince McMahon being involved.

Haven't watched it at all. Vince tried to put it directly up against AEW and so far it's a losing proposition in the ratings. Of course the vibe is different, it's a developmental league.

It was once, now not nearly as much. There are a few people there who I'd say work a match better and have more talent than wrestlers on the other rosters who have been there 10-15 years.

Not that any of this is me crapping on AEW, 'cause it isn't. I enjoy it for the most part. It's just like I said in my first post; like WWE, there are certain portions and wrestlers within AEW that I enjoy more than others.

Nobody in the WWE company actually works a match. They strictly follow the choreography. They do everything as rehearsed and practiced.

Working a match is when we enter the ring knowing ONLY the outcome and nothing else. Every move and the story you're telling is getting called in the ring, live by the workers. Not all choreographed and rehearsed in advance. That's what we call "real" pro wrestling - you'll see mistakes made. You'll see maybe some moves get botched here and there. You'll see maybe someone gets legit pist off and shoots. It's not sterile and antiseptic, like WWE is.

People should get and read Ric Flair's book for better understanding of this.
