AEW-CMLL Collaboration: Konnan Weighs In On The Impact

3 Key Points

  • Konnan questions the effectiveness of the AEW-CMLL partnership
  • CMLL wrestlers receive significant spotlight in AEW, but Konnan remains skeptical
  • CMLL’s Homenaje a Dos Leyendas event sells out quickly, showcasing potential success

Overview of AEW-CMLL Partnership

Despite a smooth collaboration between AEW (All Elite Wrestling) and CMLL (Consejo Mundial de Lucha Libre), which saw stars like Mistico and Atlantis Jr. appearing on AEW platforms, controversy arises with Konnan’s critique. As a key figure in AAA and a close observer of lucha libre, Konnan shared his thoughts on an episode of “Keepin’ It 100 with Konnan,” questioning the mutual benefits of this cross-promotion effort.

Konnan’s Critiques

Konnan pointed out a lack of background and storytelling for the CMLL wrestlers involved, noting that their matches did little to enhance their recognition or the storyline. He specifically mentioned Atlantis Jr., voicing concern that the wrestler’s introduction to AEW’s audience failed due to a lack of familiarity.

A Glance at Success

On the other hand, the success story of CMLL’s special event, Homenaje a Dos Leyendas, indicates a positive outcome from this partnership. This event, marked by record-setting sell-out times at Arena Mexico, featured top CMLL talent against AEW’s BCC (Blackpool Combat Club), suggesting a strong interest among wrestling fans.

In conclusion, while the AEW-CMLL partnership has faced criticism from influential figures like Konnan, certain elements, such as the successful Homenaje a Dos Leyendas event, highlight the potential benefits and successes of the collaboration. This mixed reception showcases the complexities of cross-promotional efforts in professional wrestling.
