With the amount of interest AEW is getting at the moment (which will probably continue beyond their TV debut towards the end of the year) - is there any chance of splitting them out of the indie board and giving them their own specific forum?

Also, I think NJPW probably deserves it's own board too (with the G1 coming up soon, I'm sure it could create some interest...)

Hmm unsure atm because it depends on how well it catches on. 1 show isn't something to take home.

Speaking of which, I'm looking to re-organize the boards, in general.

But it is gonna get a lot of discussion for the rest of the year: 1 ppv per month plus the TV debut (and subsequent weeks).

Look at how much discussion there already is, (Indie Wrestling ) then consider that most of the wrestlers are still relative unknowns to us. I reckon that this is gonna generate at least the same amount of interest as the WWE boards for the next few months at least.

Yeah fair point.

PWF Interactive (thinking of separating BTB and moving it to The War Zone whilst disabling the Interactive section, in general, as it doesn't gain much traction.)

Thoughts?

I like that one too, but I don't think AEW should have it's own sub-forum. It should be a section in the Other Wrestling, if it's popular and gets more and more traction then we can have a WWE-style sub-forum.

I'll go with that. I think as long as we have AEW it's own board in some shape or form (i.e it's selectable from the main forum menu) then it will do the job.

I reckon it will have it's own subforum by week 2 of it's tv show at the latest though.... ;)

Feels like a real change in wrestling is going on at the minute - everything I'm seeing about AEW is positive and even my Mrs social feeds have a fair amount of "none"wrestling fans talking about it.

This show was beyond "the pipebomb". We're talking Outsiders showing up in WCW levels of interest here....
