Former WWE writer critical of AEW All Out Submitted by Aaron Rift on 09/02/2019 at 02:25 PM
Former WWE writer and Lucha Underground producer Chris DeJoseph was critical of the AEW All Out PPV:
@AEWrestlingís #AllOut was ok. IMO. They need their characters that connect to the audience, but tonight I learned nothing about the featured characters. Make me care! Btw much love to the @MrGMSI_BCage Vignette impression. Solid. Run with it. Do more.
Iíve taken a lot of flak for my unfavorable option of last nightís @AEWrestling show. I want them to succeed. But that show lacked story. And if you want the ďaverageĒ fan to be invested, if you want to gain an audience, story trumps all, and that was severely lacking.
The story of Spears vs Rhodes never got personal. If you are super fan and watched their matches in OVW you might be clued in. But to the average kid that hasnít watched religiously in the past 15 years, no one got it.
Also the production was horrid. Showed production cleaning the ring & couldíve cut to a pretape of Ambrose pissed he couldnít wrestle, explained the Cody story more, instead they missed opportunities. Wrestling was great but you could tell that even the commentary wasnít pleased.
