7 Ups & 4 Downs For AEW Collision (Nov 25 - Results & Review)


4. Those Ric Flair Ads Are Way Too Distracting

AEW Collision Ric Flair Wooooo Energy

For those unaware, AEW has struck a multi-year deal with Ric Flair's WOOOOO Energy drink. As part of that deal, cans of the drink are present on the commentary desk, which is all fine and good, but the bigger problem right now is the pair of Flair heads on the stage's video wall.

These giant Nature Boys - sporting his entry drink, of course - are just way, way too distracting. Obviously a commercial deal means you have to plug a product, yet there has to be something less 'busy' than the current use of those Flair caricatures.

Any time the stage is in eyeshot, you can't help but have your attention taken by the massive Flair heads. To be fair, grabbing your attention is clearly the mission objective of any sort of advertising, but from an AEW standpoint, this somewhat takes away from the in-ring action.
