Ross points out that television is still king in the wrestling business. Some have said that a television deal is imminent for AEW, but Ross thinks a deal is already done. He doesn’t think we would have seen a huge spectacle like we saw on Thursday without a solid television deal in place.
Ross thinks AEW faces a challenge in the sense that they have three talents working as Executive Vice Presidents with a hand in the booking. Satin agrees but thinks that Cody and The Young Bucks realize the situation that they’re in. After all three of them went over at their show, ALL IN, they’ll be careful with how they book themselves moving forward.
Ross thinks the idea that AEW can compete with WWE is premature. He points out that AEW can be massively profitable and have a lot of success without ever approaching or even thinking about WWE.
That sums up this week’s episode of The Jim Ross Report. You can listen to the show yourself anytime here, and I’ll catch ya next week for another recap!
