Put it on Ricky Steamboat to make up for making him continue to wrestle into 1987.
Sometimes hotshotting is the right call. WWE really needed a big feel good moment to win back some fan sentiment. No, AEW isn't going to beat WWE in total viewers anytime soon (if ever). But, WWE doesn't want to be seen as the place with no fun and no big moments.sad they hotshotted this in desperation but I'm extremely happy for Big E. This is probably the last big moment WWE has that I can think of.
WWE's also going to call it NXT 2.0 from now on.
