Tony Khan AEW

    it still was WCW PPV. WWE could have come up with something new.

    WWE bought WCW, AEW did not. Big difference.

    Not really the same thing though is it. WWE bought WCW and everything that went with it, including the PPVs. The fact that they initially had the whole invasion angle, and there was no gap between WCW ending and WWE having them on their roster, it makes 100% sense for WWE to use those names, even reviving them years later.

    AEW is supposed to be this new entity, doing things differently and not living off the glories of the past like some kind of nostalgiafest like WWE, and yet here they are going for nostalgia.

    It’s not really a mystery. AEW Dynamite = WCW Nitro. Rasslin is back on TNT. Hire Tony Shiavone, the voice of Nitro. Have guys like DDP and Glacier, etc., old Nitro stars, make appearances. So it makes perfect sense, for them to continue trying to have ties to WCW and the 90s Nitro era.

    WAR Games was a WCW thing now used by WWE NXT. They all do it

  • Michael Justin Arnold

    Its just gonna be a beach-themed episode of Dynamite, so not that big of a deal. Especially since theyre not doing it in July like ppv was

    I know there is this whole Dusty created things in WCW thing that Cody wants to pay homage to etc, but why on Earth would AEW want to use a PPV name from an old promotion rather than forging ahead and creating their own unique ones?
