the whole point is to create an aura around the AEW brand. Just like WCW, it'll be the place with a billionaire in charge throwing around that cash money like it's no ones business. newcomers don't have to automatically take the NXT deal. midcarders in WWE that feel they are being under utilized/under paid have somewhere else to go. we are already seeing it and the promotion hasn't even officially had a show yet.
not sure how that contradicts my post
AEW has all of the personnel in place to produce a good wrestling product. Like WCW in its prime.
if you're arguing that the smaller built in audience means AEW has a low chance of being successful... built in audience being smaller doesn't really mean shit when it comes to live content in the modern era. wwe is doing numbers worse than 2000 WCW and getting a billion dollar tv deal out of it. AEW is on the verge of getting the best non WWE tv deal since WCW went under.
they're going to do fine. also helps that they're selling out arenas before they've even aired one show on tv.
