Jericho's been a shining star - I enjoy him very much on AEW. Cody doesn't get as much love around here, but I think he's been great on AEW as well. Moxley as well. Omega has been missing something, but I think he'll get there. Lucha Bros. and SCU are always fun, and I dig some other characters, too (Inner Circle, Jurassic Express, MJF). However, AEW isn't must-see television for me, and honestly part of that is that there's so much wrestling content out there (let alone streaming TV content between Disney+, Netflix and HBO) nothing outside of WWE PPVs and NXT Takeovers come close to must-see these days.

I have enjoyed the product quite a bit since it became a weekly thing, and while there are kinks that need working on, itís fun and I watch each episode from front to back.

I think we should all hope they do well and improve. It only helps the business.

This is 100% true. I do wonder if a truly A+, groundbreaking product is even possible in 2019. Everything good gets over exposed so quick. Itís almost as if we need to start making a delineation between a great pro wrestler and a TV star.

Jericho in 2019 is a TV star. Omega is a pro wrestler. Mox is probably the closest mix AEW has to both. In WWE Reigns, Orton and most of the rest are TV stars first at this point. Many of the NXT guys - especially Cole (who is an amazing pro wrestler) are becoming less pro-wrestlers and more TV stars by the day.

I mean Ricochet isnít any worse at wrestling now than 2 years ago, but itís almost like he is failing a bit at the TV star portion of his job. There are many others like him too.

One thing AEW has that it's unique to itself is the hot crowds while going to different cities. RAW and SD have to deal with dead crowds while Full Sail can get tiring.

Some people dislike AEW for the very same reason but I like them. They elevate the entire show.
