AEW has certainly come far since its inception back in 2019. The company has grown every year and has hired more and more top-tier talent. AEW was also blasted for making gimmick matches ordinary and routine.

AEW has been using gimmick matches since day one, as it has become part and parcel of the company. AEW recently held a Texas Death Match, a Street Fight, and a Ladder Match all within the span of a month.

While speaking on his podcast, The Drive-Thru, Jim Cornette blasted the company for making gimmick matches ordinary and routine.

“They might as well just say just everything is no rules and means nothing because almost everything is no rules and does mean nothing. This in, in less than three years, they have killed off and made meaningless and ordinary and routine and blahzay, almost every gimmick match that exists in the wrestling business.”


AEW is unlikely to stop using gimmick matches often anytime soon by the looks of it. Regardless, fans continue to enjoy the product and that’s what matters in the end.
