In the course of the newest Determine 4 Each day podcast on WrestlingObserver.com, Lance Storm and Bryan Alvarez mentioned the AEW Revolution pay-per-view, this previous Wednesday’s Dynamite, the WWE-Peacock “catastrophe” and far more.

Throughout a dialog in regards to the AEW Revolution buyrate, Storm stated he doesn’t consider there are any wrestlers at the moment which are a draw on their very own:

“There are people who find themselves stars and when you’ve gotten sufficient stars, you’ll be able to draw. However, the idea of 1 particular person individual truly being a attract at the moment’s day and age, I simply don’t purchase it…He (Kenny Omega). He isn’t the draw. He wasn’t the change. You’ve received Sunday Night time which can have been the distinction. You’ve received Sting’s large first match in AEW. You’ve received the announcement of the brand new Corridor of Fame worthy signee and also you’ve received bombs. 

I’m not making an attempt to belittle Kenny Omega or anybody else. There may be star energy.  There are people who find themselves perceived as stars and so they have worth, however one particular person individual of really being a draw the place if he’s on the TV present, scores go up, if he’s off the TV present scores go down any important quantity, or ticket gross sales or purchase charges, I simply don’t purchase that. 

Consider one individual in any firm, actually, that if that one individual left, the corporate’s monetary place can be drastically diminished…Choose anybody.  If Chris Jericho left AEW at the moment, there’s not going to be a perceptible distinction of their Wednesday Night time score. Their subsequent PPV purchase price isn’t going to drop as a result of Chris Jericho isn’t on it, or Kenny Omega, or Cody Rhodes or whoever. Granted, should you misplaced The Bucks, Kenny, and Cody, yeah, then you might be shedding a bunch of your star energy after which your enterprise would drop.”
