  • I also think it's essential to use these established names primarily with fresh talent. I would think the last thing they want to do is present a slew of WWE rematches and keep the big names in their own little bubble, mixing it up is a good strategy I would say.

    • The smilling all love CM PUNK doesn't work for me... I think that the mayority of ex WWE guys with a few exceptions should debut as heels. Especially the maint event levels guys... Danielson is killing it right now

      • When did CM Punk turn heel? I just saw that last week he came out at the Nassau Coliseum in a John Tavares Jersey. Now if you do not know. Tavares is one of the most hated guys to NY Islanders fans, as he strung us along, and lied to us, and then went and signed with the Toronto Maple leafs.

        Brilliant move by Punk, but that is a clear heel move. So when did he turn heel?

        • He didn't. But last time he was in Long Island he was feuding with MJF and they booed him hard. He probably anticipated that they would again since he and MJF have that history, or just decided to troll the fans there a little bit based on the last time he was there.

          Adam Page is the one leaning heel.

          • It floors me that they’d have Punk chasing Adam Paige instead of MJF.

            • Punk will draw in the casual fan.

              • It seems Punk & Page are taking it in turns 'heeling it up' and that post Double or Nothing they'll both still be top babyfaces. I've seen the build compared to a big time boxing match where both guys might be genuinely good and nice guys but feel the need to say and do stuff to get under their opponent's skin to try and gain a psychological edge. It's different and seeing as they were never going to be able to build it into a huge grudge match in such a short space of time I think it works.

                • I think putting Punk into a baby face match for his title shot is pretty non imaginative. They’ve not really swung at the fences with him. Lots of punting from Tony Khan. I guess all you have to do is punt if you’re only going for one base, though.

                    And yet still the Dynamite ratings don't shift.

                    • Maybe for a PPV? Maybe?

                      But the question is still this for AEW then...

                      In their 3 years of existence, they have had 4 champions, and 2 of them are pretty significant former WWE guys, and if Punk wins, that would make 3 out of 5.

                      • It doesn't matter. You make the star the World Champion, regardless of where they work. Going with Page because they planned it two years ago over Danielson six months ago was a mistake.

                        Punk's a draw. He sells tickets, his segments draw, his merch sells, his PPV's are up year-on-year. He can't be responsible for two full hours though.

                            Yep - at the end of what may be the longest pay per view I've ever sat through. if not in terms of actual time, then at least in terms of feeling bloody long.

                            • They all started to feel like that to me after a while. I hear this was particularly egregious though?

                              • Double or Nothing was certainly their longest show but to me it didn't feel it as I didn't watch it live and so was able to skip a couple of matches I had no interest in. Just a shame the result of the main event has been pretty much made null and void by Punk's injury.
