Wow. That would be good. The ‘I don’t get that I’m a heel (wink)’ heel CAN be big fun. And if done right, you take advantage of how marks get mad about things now. I think about 97/98 self-righteous Bret Hart as a prime example.

It’s dangerous tho. And when a show like AEW gets to this point, it could work so far counter to how they started out: a company that was made to have good matches and ‘serve the fans’. Now they have to trust the ‘fans’ to get that having a BIG ASS HEEL is one of the best ways to serve the fans. Because then, some babyface somewhere gets the rub of taking out that heel at some point.

But do the Twittery folks who think AEW is the white knight saving American wrestling from the ultra evil big money corporation that is WWE get this? Or no? Maybe we will see!
