Best and worst of AEW Fight for the Fallen - Embarrassing botch, Surprise appearance
It hurts me to say this, but I think I have to. AEW started off on the right note with Double or Nothing, but every subsequent show was been more disappointing than the one before it.
I wouldn't really say that Fight for the Fallen was a bad show per se, but honestly, I had much bigger expectations from the promotion. There will be 'worsts' not even mentioned in this list, like the show being far too long, a lot of the matches not even having a backstory and sloppiness in almost every department.
The crowd in attendance is still in the honeymoon period and is guaranteed to lap up anything that is served to them. But let me say that as a viewer, there was more than one aspect of the show that I thought was super disappointing.
Let me detail everything for you in this very article.
#1 Best: The setting and the visual presentation
You often hear about fans not being able to get into promotions outside WWE because of just how shoddy and underwhelming the production is. That will not be a problem for AEW because the promotion obviously believes in creating the best experience for fans from a visual standpoint.
The setup was such that from the word go, the whole thing seemed like a very big deal. The crowd in attendance was red hot from the beginning that this gave the whole event a very 'big fight feel'. Even when I was worn out from watching the show at home, the crowd in attendance was super energetic.
I'm guessing that AEW is going to go even bigger for All Out, and that should be a treat to behold. Unfortunately, the stage was the best thing about the whole show.
