AEW has come a long way since its inception in 2019. The company has undergone a lot of changes over the years. Booker T also criticized AEW for a good reason.
However, not everything is going well with AEW right now. On top of a slew of injuries, the company also has a lot of drama involving CM Punk. Needless to say, Tony Khan’s company continues to generate a ton of discussion within the pro wrestling fan base.
While speaking during his Hall of Fame podcast, Booker T criticized AEW for having too many antics involved backstage.
Right now, I feel like AEW’s off track. I think that, like a politician, they are off-message right now. As far as really trying to get the people to buy in what they are doing. NXT did 750,000 views last week, something like that. They are going strong man, and the last thing they are thinking about, I think right now is anything other than the show, giving the people an awesome show… There’s so much, so many antics going on right now with AEW as far as people…”
We will have to wait and see whether the backstage environment in the company will get better. Things simply do not seem to be going well for AEW at this moment. They still have passionate fans who will stand by All Elite Wrestling, so hopefully their fandom will help carry the company through this rough spot.
