I’m just going to start quoting myself at this point.

NXT is so good. It’s impossible to believe this is the same company that creates the drivel that it RAW and SD.
 
NXT finish was spoiled for me by some stupid android alert that hit before it was even 8PDT but whatevs. NXT is currently the better of the two Wednesday shows, both are better than Raw and SD which are not good.

Hell in a Hell ended my relationship with the “main roster.”

Makes me look forward to and appreciate Wednesday more with the rest of my week not flooded by crappy wrestling.
 
Humorously enough, AEW is dominating NXT in the ratings in every demographic of people younger than me.
If you go back to the attitude era, WCW was still dominating during some of the most creative/best stuff. So no surprise really. I like 90% of what AEW is doing. I think the important part is both allow the ring action to tell the bulk of the story and don't do the 20 minute monologues 3x a night to fill a way too long show.

The NWA show is even doing a better job at that style of story telling, unfortunately they're essentially doing it with TNA rejects.

What's funny is how WWE had to essentially re-book Smackdown on the fly, due to half the roster getting stuck in Saudi Arabia, and it ended up being the best episode of Smackdown, by far, since the move to Fox. Probably the best episode in at least a year.

Really a shocker that an episode littered with NXT influence was the best one in ages!
 
I like NXT more but I've been watching AEW just because I prefer to watch NXT on the network and I don't even have to commercial skip.

I'm like 75% sold on AEW but the bad is bad. I also don't buy Shawn Spears (formerly Tye Dillinger) one bit. But the worst is their women's division which is a joke whereas NXT has maybe the best women's division of everything with a TV show (Thunder Rosa's in-ring debut on the NWA show was pretty satisfying as well).
