Fans were left in awe due to the amazing long-form storytelling during AEW’s initial years. However, in recent memory, the promotion has become notorious for throwing together random matches with no backstory and fans have called them out for it.
AEW recently announced that Kenny Omega will face the debuting AAA Mega Champion El Hijo del Vikingo on the upcoming episode of AEW Dynamite. This announcement led to many fans criticizing the lack of story around the match.
Luchablog also discussed the criticism and tweeted that people have time to ask who a wrestler is, but don’t have time to google them. Tony Khan responded by saying that most of the people criticizing AEW have fake accounts meant for bashing the company.
The AEW boss didn’t stop there, as he continued to hit back at fans for criticizing the company. He sent out another tweet to further clarify his point.
“One of my favorite bits they do is when they claim they used to love AEW in the old days, but not anymore, yet when you dig into their old posts, there’s nothing positive on AEW ever. Yes, I’m sure you all used to be great fans despite no evidence of that whatsoever.”
Tony Khan followed the above tweet with another one. It seems that some fans were questioning how long he’s actually been a part of the pro wrestling world.
“I’ve been online since the Grandstand Wrestling Forum on dial-up America Online.”
It looks like Tony Khan is still not ready to listen to the fans’ criticism which could end up hurting the product in the long run. Until then, stay tuned to Ringside News.
