Will be interesting to see how they handle an event with no fans, hopefully not as depressing as WWE's recent shows.

And the exhaulted one is supposed to be revealed tonight but I wouldn't be surprised if they delayed it for awhile.

Do they pull that big of a swerve and chance oissing people off?  It is strange that they will do it with no fans though

 

Card so far:

 

Luchasaurus and Jungle Boy vs. The Butcherand The Blade

Lucha Bros vs. Best Friends

The reveal of The Dark Order’s leader, The Exalted One

The Inner Circle vs. The Elite in six-man action with the winners receiving the advantage for the “Blood & Guts” match on March 25

Cutting a promo to an empty crowd will never not be awkward

It's obviously not as good as a full crowd, but having a few wrestlers at ringside as a sort of "mini-crowd" with faces on one side and heels on the other is a simple & great solution.

LIGHT YEARS better than the totally empty arena SmackDown had.

Putting a few butts in the seats makes such a big difference, I can actually tolerate watching the product

I was thinking about that watching this show vs Smackdown and NXT.  The WWE is still untouchable when it comes to video packages, but somehow AEW routinely beats them in live production despite being in business for more months.  It is almost unfathomable.

Even something as simple as the heels' corner being on the face crowd's side, and vice versa.

Simple, but still so smart.

You also gotta give AEW tons of credit - it might change (I doubt it), but they're giving us a FULL show instead of relying on monumentally long video packages or replaying old matches.

That might be the first time I've ever seen Christopher Daniels be entertaining.   He was cutting a decent promo!
