AEW has strived to provide the best product possible after making its debut back in 2019 and they have certainly improved in several aspects since then. However, it seems a common complaint regarding the product might not get rectified.
The complaint is that AEW rarely tries to save particular matches for the next pay-per-view, particularly championship matches. This complaint was recently raised when Miro won the TNT Championship from Darby Allin, which many felt should have taken place at a major pay-per-view instead.
While speaking to Connor Casey of Comicbook.com, Cody Rhodes talked about fans wanting AEW to save matches for bigger events. Rhodes stated that it’s an old mindset that doesn’t belong in 2021. Rhodes added that providing better content to AEW Dynamite, which has the biggest audience, is what’s important.
“But that being said, we don’t save anything. That old kind of passe, “Oh, save it for the pay-per-view.” Well, we only do four pay-per-views a year, and what people are watching and our biggest audience is on TNT and it will become TBS. It’s very hard to think of stuff to save, but we have such a roster. There’s so many matches that haven’t been touched on. Those four specials will be very special indeed, in-house and arena, and on TNT. I think it’ll be a whole new ball game for wrestling fans.”
With AEW’s next pay-per-view Double Or Nothing set to take place on May 30th, it is likely fans will get to see some major title changes and memorable moments from the pay-per-view.
