AEW commentator Nigel McGuinness has shared his candid thoughts on AEW increasing its pay-per-view schedule.
From AEW’s early days, the company established Double or Nothing, All Out, Full Gear and Revolution as major pay-per-view events.
More pay-per-view specials have been introduced since then, with AEW X NJPW Forbidden Door, All In London and WrestleDream added to the 2023 calendar.
Speaking with WrestlingNews.co, Nigel McGuinness indicated that AEW is prioritising giving fans more options with these additional events, rather than keeping must-see matches confined to the AEW ‘Big Four’.
Believing that fans are spoiled for choice, McGuinness said:
“Yeah, I mean, let’s be honest, if you’re a pro wrestling fan, there’s never been more pro wrestling for you to watch. Listen, let’s be honest, there’s already too much pro wrestling out there as it stands right now.
“The difficulty is you don’t know where the golden nuggets are gonna come from. You know what I mean? So it really could be on any of those pay-per-views.
“One of those matches is going to stand out and blow people away. Who would have thought that match between FTR and Bullet Club Gold that nearly went an hour was going to be a match-of-the-year contender?
“That’s the difficulty. You gotta watch so much stuff, but I suppose that one of the benefits of the internet is the sense that you can sort of pick and choose.
“Tony, a huge wrestling fan himself, by his own admission, would watch wrestling 24 hours a day if he had the choice, so he just wants to give that to the fans of AEW and give everybody employed by AEW the opportunity to go out there and do what they love.”
