Back in the old days of wrestling allowing a "bad guy" to mount as much hatred as possible to make for a more satisfying end when that does come. All Elite Wrestling is not perfect in the slightest, but thus far the strong booking behind The Elite's revival. Since December when Kenny Omega won the World Title from Jon Moxley it was clear there was a bigger picture coming together. Once Anderson and Gallows made their debuts as a member of the working agreement with Impact Wrestling. Adding Nick and Matt Jackson back into the story and going for the slow build story instead of rushing into the story. Choosing to let us think that the Bucks were against Kenny's actions instead of just siding with him was the right decision.
Since they turned on Moxley a few weeks ago they've shown a new side from who they were when AEW first started. In my opinion, the Young Bucks we see now are more extensions of the stars they always wanted to be. Right now the Bucks are among the top heels in wrestling with heat on a level we haven't seen in a long time. All the members of the Elite generate reactions from the fans and people wait on the edge of their seats hoping for the night when the Elite will be hit with a loss.
Keeping them strong and making them unbeatable will make the first crack in the foundation all the sweeter. The main thing will be is if AEW knows the right time to make the loss happen instead of waiting too long to show they are human. The one mistake WCW made with the New World Order was never allowing for a real clean loss, and it ended up killing all the momentum, I would hope that AEW doesn't make the same mistake. In my opinion, 2021 will be an Elite year and AEW should've a long term plan for each member including who beats Kenny for the World Title and who will beat The Bucks for the tag titles.
I've kept my eyes on the continued development of the current reigning TNT Champion Darby Allin. At this point, it has to be a coincidence that I make the point that Darby should defend the title more often, and it happened. Next I mentioned that Darby's matches needed to simplify and allow the fans to focus on the goings-on in the ring and not what is going on outside the ring. This week the focus was kept on the ring action to allow for the continued development of Sky & Page vs Allin & Sting. It seems that a loss to Allin sent Sky over the edge and now by whatever means necessary.
The attack on Sting this week prompts the question of if this means that Sting will disappear for a couple of weeks and if this might bring about a more focused Darby Allin. Also, one has to question to continued involvement of Lance Archer and now Preston Vance possibly being included in the feud now the odds are now uneven. Archer does have unfinished business with Sky and Page from a few weeks ago when they escaped a beating from the "Murderhawk Monster."
Praiseworthy! It is the one word that I can use to describe AEW's recent booking of the TNT title picture as various people are now included in the picture with all having a reason to be included. In my opinion, Sting should disappear for a few weeks to allow the focus to be shifted to the champion, Archer, Vance, Sky, and Page instead of rushing into a match including Sting. The long term goal should be the eventual tag team match between Page & Sky vs Allin & Sting rather than rushing into the match before they need to. The first stop in this feud should either be a four way #1 one contender match or a five way TNT Championship Match for the next PPV.
