For me, Comedy has always had a place in professional wrestling. Wether its a character, a feud, a match. If done and written well, I remember it, i find it sucsessful, and can be memorable.
AEW definitly hits comedic and enjoyment notes more than it misses by a wide margin i find. The weekly party match, the entrances, Orange Cassidy etc etc. Wether its creative or personally driven by the performer themselves, I rarely see many miscues.
Can you please inform me who has been the head of humor for WWE, and i honestly don't know how far i should be going back. Is it just Vince? Pritchard? I barely remember anything funny recently. But what I do remember, is something that was very obviuously written to be funny, and is the farthest from it. The Simpsons have a better pulse on laughter today than them, and an episode takes 4-6 months still.
Unfortunately their sense of humor got released by Nick Khan during the pandemic.
