AEW delivered a really good episode of Dynamite on Weds., April 13. Then they closed with a debut that it’s protected to say didn’t get the response they have been hoping for.
Jay Deadly & Sonjay Dutt’s introduction of 7’3” Satnam Singh as a weapon of their marketing campaign in opposition to Samoa Joe was reportedly done as part of a Tony Khan plan to impress his companions on the newly merged Warner Bros. Discovery. The large angle with Singh, recognized in his native India for being the primary particular person from the nation to be drafted by an NBA crew, was designed to make a giant splash in one of many largest media markets within the globe.
Time will inform if that technique works out for TK. For now, Singh’s first look is being criticized or outright mocked by wrestling followers. If we have been making predictions about how this week’s Dynamite overrun shall be remembered sooner or later, one of the best we are able to provide might be that it received’t be mocked fairly as a lot as Shockmaster or The Yeti.
Will that impression follow Singh all through his profession? One of many males who’s been coaching him hopes not. Satnam is one in every of might AEW abilities who’s labored with QT Marshall at The Nightmare Manufacturing facility. Marshall isn’t unbiased, and he’s understandably excited in regards to the “one in a billion” large man, who “most likely has an inch or two on Shaq [Shaquille O’Neal].”
However QT’s not blind to how issues went on Wednesday, both. He told Busted Open:
“He’s actually particular. I’m excited that they acquired him on the market. Clearly, I learn a few of the stuff that folks have been saying about him. Hear, he’s model new. You gotta give him an opportunity.
“I feel one of the best ways to place somebody out there’s to place them on the market with guys with a number of expertise. Nobody is aware of what he’s going to do. It’s not like he’s going for the world title.”
Are you open to seeing what occurs subsequent with Singh, or is there no getting back from that debut?
