AEW may have had a lot of controversial moments in the past several months. Wrestlers in the company consistently state that AEW is a great place to work. But a wrestling icon has a different opinion of the matter.
While making an appearance on The Wrassingh Show podcast, WWE Hall of Famer Kurt Angle commented on AEW. He thinks that the company is too loose with the talent that they want with the in-ring action and promos among other issues.
“I just think the company might be a little too loose … it’s more like the Wild West … not as organized as it should be. The wrestlers are making up their own promos, saying their own thing, doing their own thing, and I think there needs to be organization within the company where you have the writers telling the wrestlers what to say and enhancing their characters.”
“Putting the wrestlers in charge of their own promos and pre-tapes … and even their matches, I don’t know if they have agents for the matches, producers for their matches. So, I think they need to be overlooked, the talent. That’s what makes WWE so good, why they’re so organized, and why the show is always so tight.”
As a veteran in pro wrestling, Angle does have a lot of solid viewpoints. AEW may be a young company, but its management needs to learn about organization for the matches and feuds going into them.
