AEW Seemingly Purchases 'Wednesday Night War' Domains, Furthering Feud With WWE Its so hard to predict how this will all pan out. I think its safe to say that WWE have run off so many fans this century that there are more than enough of them to build a huge new audience with. But how many of those people will actually watch AEW is a big unknown. I was originally hoping that AEW would not keep acknowledging and poking at WWE or have this sort of war, but I think I was wrong about the situation. I was thinking of all the pathetic ways Impact used to do this, and how low-rent it made them seem at times. But it looks like a fair chunk of AEWs support comes from fans that are anti-WWE and want some aspects of AEW to reflect this. Plus, once AEW started getting ticket sales etc that made the TV industry interested in them, Vince was never going to leave them alone. He has always had a ruthless desire to destroy the competition, and he takes this threat seriously, unlike TNA which was such a minnow that a proper 'war' was not at all sustainable. I suppose one eventuality is that all of WWEs issues, from crap product to too much product to too much micro-management by an increasingly old and out of touch and spread too thin Vince McMahon, declining ratings, network numbers decline, live attendance decline, unhappy wrestlers, getting into a war with hot new competition and Vinces attention being spread even thinner when his new american football league starts, eventually leads to doom. Doom for Vince if not for WWE itself (they have too much revenue from tv etc deals for the company to die within the lifetime of these multi-year deals), nothing lasts forever, not even Vince McMahon as master of his own empire. I dont know if it will happen like that. There is always a chance WWE will find fresh success with something and change momentum. If they fail to do that, then the timing of all of this is certainly interesting, it could become a perfect storm. When I think of all the times they wasted my time as a viewer, by not sticking to the stories that are supposed to engage us, or not letting hot new stars be the wrestlers and stars they should be, I am certainly on the long list of people who think WWE deserve to have their ass handed to them. I've been after an alternative that ticks all the right boxes for me for almost 19 years now, when they dropped the Kurt-Steph-HHH love triangle angle in a manner that foreshadowed how they would be careless with storylines ever since.
