I'm still allowed to dislike Bryan for unrelated workplace reasons, though...right?

Also sexism, religious bias, jingoism, and so on. Don't do it, people!

Dogs, don't do it either, even if the police man really tries to train you to do it.



Is it because you two couldn't agree which was better, a boat made out of gold or an airplane made out of silver?

Based on what you've said in the past, you've got perfectly legitimate reasons to not be a fan of the guy. You certainly don't lump in with the types who hate him with the passion of a 1000 burning suns because he posted two numbers (and nothing BUT those numbers) on twitter and one of the numbers was higher than the other number.

For the last couple of years he was constantly giving them the benefit of the doubt while also hating the majority of their creative decisions, it was very weird

It's because nothing give him more of a chub than getting to sit front row and ask questions at useless propaganda events like the 2K game press conference

Now that he will no longer get to do poo poo like that(which makes him feel like he's "one of the boys"), and also will no longer have Online Validation(his lifeblood) his world is going to get very, very small.

Also the culture changed from steroids being the norm for action heroes. And Warrior was a big disappointment as champion. And they're both racists so who gives a gently caress.

And sure Keith Lee is 6' 2'' but so am I and I've met Keith Lee and never in a million years would I say we're the same size. Dude is huge and it's a lot of muscle.

Dude is big as hell.

They literally went out of their way to sign a long-term contract with AEW about half a year ago, so I'm sure that TNT are just chomping at the bit to cancel the show.

STOP DOING HEROIN

TNT reportedly had an optimistic benchmark of 500k a week for Dynamite and would've been ecstatic with anything higher than that. Clearly they're going to pull the plug for AEW doing *only* 600-800 for months of empty-arena shows during a global pandemic (while running a PPV that by all accounts smashed modest expectations).

He also believes that NBA will take away, at minimum, 1-200k viewers. It is a fact that AEW will be under 400k viewers after the NBA starts.

STOP DOING HEROIN

Weren't they basically holding steady against NBA games before the season got halted? Like, Wednesday night games on ESPN aren't as big as TNT's Thursday doubleheader, which is where all the marketing muscle goes into, but the NBA is still ratings king in the fall/winter, so nobody was going to kill them for losing to, like, Wizards/Heat or whatever random matchup gets thrown on Wednesdays.

Also they were doing a lot of crossover synergy, with TNT announcers plugging Dynamite and AEW guys showing up in the studio with Shaq and Barkley. They clearly have big plans for AEW being a major part of the Turner family, and I doubt these last few months have changed that.

I am sure Russo would book modern, compelling Stories for the women's division.
