All Elite Wrestling (AEW), a professional wrestling promotion officially launched this week in the cultural epicenter of Jacksonville, Florida, has “gone way downhill recently,” according to cynical wrestling fan Todd McCreary.
“AEW was great back in the day,” said 36-year-old McCreary, a former sandwich artist and self-described wrestling historian. “But now, with the addition of (Chris) Jericho, it feels like AEW has finally jumped the shark.”
McCreary added that he was “pumped” about AEW during “its early days” — by which he presumably means yesterday — but has since grown weary of the “shoddy creative” and “questionable workrate.”
Despite McCreary’s cynicism, AEW has barely begun operations, having just announced the signing of roster members including Cody and Brandi Rhodes, The Young Bucks, Adam Page, Chris Jericho, Corporal Kirchner, Max Moon, and Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson.
The company’s first event, Double or Nothing, is scheduled for May 25 in Las Vegas, though McCreary plans to “boycott” it to demonstrate how sick he is of AEW’s “same old sh**.”
