I don't know why the league isn't making more of an effort to broadcast live content involving the clubs and their players.

Couldn't they get a bunch of teams together and do 11v11 on FIFA (with players controlling their virtual likenesses) and do like a digital rivalry week? Or some kind of skills competition involving players in their backyards? Get the apps involved and hand out prizes to fans that predict results correctly.

Just some sort of fresh sporting content. Anything really. And this seems to be a problem for all the sports leagues now. Airing replays of 'classic' games you already know the outcomes of, the mount rushmores...it's all gotten so incredibly stale. Pro wrestling is like the only area that is continuing to pump out original stuff.

Yeah and it's horrible. They would have been better off stopping like everyone else. These matches with no crowds have been miserable to watch and the majority of the shows have been replays of old matches anyway.

Watch some AEW. They are still putting on an entertaining show imo.

I haven't been watching Raw, Smackdown or NXT, but I am looking forward to WrestleMania this weekend even though it's taped. It's new and that is what counts.

AEW has been decent though.

AEW was good the first week when they had the other wrestlers sitting around the ring, I thought last week with nobody around the ring and the overall show was the worst one since it started.

Raw, SD and NXT have all had some new content but with no fans around the ring its just awkward and doesn't work for matches.

Wrestlemania is gonna be a shit show too, Roman already dropped out of the match vs Goldberg because he was concerned about getting sick, rightfully so cause he's a high risk and apparently others didn't show up as well because they were concerned.

The whole thing should have been shut down for both companies. Mania could have came back in June or July or whenever this is over and started with a bang with Wrestlemania in a legit stadium with fans and AEW could have came back to an almost sold out Prudential Center for the Blood and Guts cage match. At least AEW postponed that match until they get fans back.

I actually do agree with most of what you said. Especially the first week vs the second. But I'm still glad they did it. Just showed more how AEW handles things in such a unique way.
