How about a warning? Spoilers are one of the trickier things to deal with in all of wrestling. While they are something that it is almost impossible to avoid, they can be both good and bad depending on the situation. On one hand, you don’t want fans finding out what you are going to be doing. On the other hand, there is something to be said about having fans knowing what they are going to see and wanting to watch anyway. This time though, a company wants them stopped completely.
The Coronavirus pandemic has changed the situation for every wrestling promotion in a lot of ways, but the biggest has been the lack of fans. Only a handful of fans were able to attend events live in 2020 and while the numbers are growing a bit, they are still a small fraction of what things were before the pandemic. This does have some benefits, but one promotion has been having to deal with spoilers despite only a small number of fans in attendance.
According to Fightful Select, AEW held a meeting in late 2020 regarding spoilers leaking for upcoming editions of Dynamite. The current thought is that the leaker is not a wrestler, as there was no leak about Brodie Lee’s illness, which was known among the locker room. There is no word on how AEW is going about finding the leaker or what they plan on doing when they find out who it is.
AEW has had some great moments they wouldn’t want spoiled. Check out some of their better moments:
Opinion: I can understand the problem of having someone leak all of these stories and results but at the same time it is hard to imagine how they could punish someone for this. Is there anything wrong with remembering something that took place during the taping? I’m not sure if there is some kind of confidentiality issue, but this is not exactly the kind of thing that can be solved easily. I get why AEW wants to stop it, but that is easier said than done.
