Re: AEW Discussion Thread

If that's what they offered the Bucks, who I still don't really get their appeal as major stars, what the hell did they offer Kenny Omega?

So the ďletters from HĒ in the BTE videos were not too far from the truth lol.

And I must say, Frankie Kazarian played a good H

Re: AEW Discussion Thread

The only thing I don't believe is the 6 month out clause. There's no reason that Vince would allow one of the hottest acts in Indie wrestling after he brought them in just because they weren't happy after 6 months. Hell he's being cautious about releasing guys like Tye Dillinger, and Tyler Breeze.

Well, aside from what I said, The Bucks do not want to work and travel the WWE schedule. They have families and don't have that mentality. They've been saying that for years and years. Also I'm sure Cody told them all about WWE's creative and the frustration.

WOW.......... that's crazy the Young Bucks would turn that down. I mean go get a Mania under your belt and you can opt out months later? I'm surprised they didn't take that offer even with them starting AEW. Hell, take the money and use Vince's money against him and invest it in AEW.

I'm still hoping for Omega to show up in WWE this year but I have my doubts.

Re: AEW Discussion Thread

I watched Omegas WK13 match last night on AXS. First match of his Iíve seen. Iíll admit he was way more charismatic in the ring than I was anticipating. He seems like a natural heel in the way that Punks charisma in the ring was better suited to a heel. Whatís Omega like as a face? Does he do similar talking and facial things?

Yeah, he's not much different as a face. Back when he first started with the Bullet Club he was a super maniacal heel, and then when he feuded with Cody he shifted into a babyface, especially when he re-formed The Golden Lovers, and then won the IWGP title and did the SF show.

When he did the feud with Tanahashi he had to primarily be a heel, and criticize Tanahashi in promos and interviews.

Re: AEW Discussion Thread

I've always been a WWE guy and always want the top stars to sign there. But I'm kinda happy all those guys turned them down. I mean there would be no AEW without what they are doing. And I wanna see something fresh and new.

I want competition. I hope Omega goes to AEW as well. Even though it would be awesome if he went to WWE he will be AEW's top guy and if they want a chance to succeed they need him in my opinion.
