Bully Ray on why AEW has been a success

Bully Ray

AEW Double or Nothing will take place on May 25 at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas and sold out in four minutes.

On Busted Open, Bully Ray talk about AEW being a success and that it has a ”coolness” which the company currently has right now.

“The guys are doing something different. They’re doing something cool. They’re doing something special.I’m gonna put a lot of emphasis on the word, ‘cool.’ Cody, The Bucks, [Chris] Jericho], and Kenny [Omega]—everybody there associated there has a coolness factor attached to them. I always said that ECW was the ‘Napster’ of pro wrestling business. I believe that AEW is the ‘Facebook’ of the pro wrestling business, right now.”

Bully Ray then explained how AEW is like the ”Facebook” of professional wrestling as they are bringing in innovation to wrestling.

“When Facebook first was invented, one of the guys within Facebook wanted to do advertising on Facebook. And they decided not to because—they don’t even know what they had with Facebook, yet, they just knew have something cool. I don’t know if AEW even knows what they have yet. It’s just cool. You can tell how cool it is by how quickly All In sold out. You can tell how cool it is by how great of an event All In was. You can tell how cool it is when people show up to a ticket release party. You can tell how cool it is when they sell out 14,000 seats in four minutes. To me, that’s cool.”

    No WCW is the one that change the business. It will always be WWE biggest rival.

    This maybe an unpopular opinion, but I really dont think that ECW revolutionized the business. They made alittle noise, but I dont think they had a huge or big part in the business.
