You'd know there were more people of color than just Brandi Rhodes if you actually watched AEW. Yoooou don't... and that's okay (just stop pretending you do in order to complain).
> its just really cringy to see the new
> trendy fans hate on WWE while cheering on wrestlers from WWE while using WWE crowdchants.
This is just internet/twitter fans. And to be fair, you're acting like this exact fan but just swinging in WWE's direction instead. You MUST realize this. The people you see chanting "YES" for Danielson VERY likely don't give a fudge about what folks on the internet are talking about.
And CM Punk/Bryan Danielson/Adam Cole... they're not "wrestlers from WWE". They're wrestlers who worked for WWE, who WWE would never have signed in a hundred million years if they weren't already popular and buzzworthy enough by the time of their signing. Come on now.
Also, fans have been hating on WWE for fudging decades now. The people dying on WWE's hill to this day have been hating on WWE for decades, just now deciding that they apparently can't live without sucking Vince's boner.
I stuck around for a while, and I still enjoy a bit of WWE's output, but sometimes it's okay to just call a spade a spade and not get as offended about it as you are. Just because folks now enjoy AEW doesn't make them "trendy" solely because you legitimately try NOT to enjoy it. And weirdly enough, several folks who criticized WWE for all those years suddenly seem like diehard "us vs them" dorks. If you're basing your argument off the same fans you claim to, you DEFINITELY need to acknowledge the toxicity from WWE diehards or it seems like you're just talking crap to talk crap.

Yeah.... this is just a silly take. AEW can be just as "sports entertainment" as WWE while being just as "indie darling" as ROH, saying that there's only "one type of wrestling nerd" who enjoy AEW would insinuate there's only one type of wrestling style in AEW. Maaaaaybe might wanna look at WWE though. They LEGITIMATELY train folks to wrestle one style, with a limited moveset, and if THEIR dorky diehard fans aren't "nerds" to you, might be because you're a nerd eh?

You don't know why he got that crapty neck tat, don't pretend like you do. You always say silly stuff like you have any actual insight whatsoever but it's really all just insinuations. Cody just seems to be a tool in real life, and got a tool tattoo. No real need to read into it like a conspiracy theorist to shame "gen z" for whatever reason. You also have no insight into his personal life other than he was sick of feeling held down in WWE and he likes to acknowledge it. Again you're just sorta projecting a mindset onto this dude because it seems you want another reason to be "edgy" and poop on something people are enjoying. Sorta your MO.
That said, saying he's not a good wrestler is laughable, especially if you're the type to crap on AEW's more indie style of wrestling considering Cody's 85% old school move set.
> It's really weird and offensive to me that AEW copies ECW and old WWF Bret
> Hart matches but the AEW fans think ECW/WWF is trash.
LOOOOL now I KNOW you're just referencing random articles to be an edgelord. "Copies old WWF Bret Hard matches"... oh because CM Punk did ONE SPOT that was an homage to a Bret Hart match literally LAST WEEK? Get the fudge outta here with that goofy crap, there were SEEEEVERAL AEW fans acknowledging and appreciating that spot... wild how that works. (Personally, I didn't even realize it.)
Pretending like EVERY SINGLE AEW fan (as if you personally know every single AEW fan) craps on ECW or WWF is also decently goofy. Again, a projection to have another thing to complain about on the internet imo. This is what I mean, you tend to just group anyone who enjoys AEW into one demographic and that proves that you're just trying to dick on a company or their fans for daring to present wrestling on a national scale outside WWE.
> Also weird that AEW fans suddenly
> have nostalgia goggles for good ol' boy WCW, which at times sucked to a level WWF
> could never aspire to and held down legends that only got to shine because they went
> on to WWF.
If you don't have nostalgia for early-90s WCW, when WCW's in-ring product was miles above WWF, then you're not a wrestling fan. Plain and simple. And LOTS of folks love late-game WCW even if I personally think it was definitely very awful.
Sounding like a broken record here but, again, this is an example of one projecting their own personal opinions onto an entire fanbase just to whine on the ol' web. "Oh I think WCW was objectively bad so all these folks claiming to have enjoyed it are LYING AND NERDY JUST CAUSE OF MY PRECIOUS WWE pls look at me no one in real life does." -the Saminator, Samtown, SammyLean.
> Using Owen's ghost to get over is scummier and cheaper than something
> even Vince would do...somehow.
Despite your earlier comment, it's been well documented that it was Vince's decision to have Owen go along with the stunt. He had even brought up being uncomfortable. Had a literal nothing to do with Bret Hart (weird, another baseless insinuation that you couldn't prove if you tried).
AEW didn't even announce the Owen deal on TV yet... trying to pretend they're using Owen's "ghost" to "get over" is fudging stupid. Especially when you consider it was OWEN'S WIFE that ultimately made the decision to allow it. It wasn't just AEW strong-arming the situation, very obviously. This wouldn't have happened without the consent of Owen's family, as has been made VERY obvious by how his widow constantly turned down WWE. In a way, vilifying AEW for honoring Owen under his own wife's wishes is just another very WWE-esque way of painting HER as the "bad guy" yet again. WWE and Vince are always in the clear, have definitely never done anything to cause distrust among the Hart family....
> You guys are getting worked by Vince to believe in
> his Mr. Mcmahon wrestling character.
My man, you legit believed WWE and AEW were owned by the same people as late as a few months ago in order to try to justify why AEW was getting popular. If anyone is getting worked, it's you... but literally in this case. You could have real easily looked up corporate licenses, but instead just pretended to know something that was entirely false. Classic Sammy Jean (is not my lover).
Vince legit made a blood money deal with the prince of SAUDI ARABIA, the regime behind the 9/11 attacks, solely for a huge payday. For someone whining about lack of diversity or weird inapplicable incel crap, you defending this sort of wild behavior is yet another piece of evidence toward you just trolling for trolling's sake. Quit pretending to have any legit ideals just to whine about wrestling when you're going to defend a dude who has been #1 shadiest dude ever since he took over WWE.

Not to pile it on but by god this is a garbage take too. Again, you're just projecting this stupid image of AEW fans onto them in your own head, which DEFINITELY doesn't make it reality. Wild how you felt this way the second AEW was announced, and have now written a novel to justify your 2-year old take but using crap that has only taken place/been reported on within the past month to do so. Feels a bit like you lost interest in talking about this stuff, then came back to it real quick for the lulz.
WWE diehards (I won't say "fans", of which I am one), are the most disrespectful chickens on the planet. They look at everything Vince does as if it's just the most perfect idea ever, and insinuate any wrestler hired by WWE owe their very existence to them. You yourself called the guys in AEW "wrestlers from WWE" as if they didn't make a huge name for themselves not just in the indies, but in companies JUST AS IMPORTANT AS WWE, like NJPW. I am truly sorry if NJPW isn't American enough for you to take seriously, but Omega was a star long before AEW - as were plenty of other guys who also happened to work for WWE.
Gotta mention too that it's sorta lame to suggest that AEW or its fans (again, as if they all exist in a hive mind) disrespect wrestling history when that company has done way more to acknowledge wrestling history in a positive manner within the past 2 years than WWE has done in its entire history. Honoring Owen Hart? No that's just fudging DUMB, let WWE just fudge over his family for years, paint his widow as insane for not wanting anything to do with them, and, oh, legitimately kill him.
