AEW’s Anthony Ogogo spoke with Wrestling Inc.’s own Nick Hausman recently on The Wrestling Inc. Daily to talk about a wide range of topics.
Ogogo mentioned that he was glad AEW Dynamite didn’t go to being a three-hour program like TNT wanted, which is why the Rampage show came to be. He also noted that a big reason he stopped watching WWE Raw was due to the length of the show.
“We want a company of stars,” Ogogo said. “We want a company full of dream matches between all of us. So the more we can all get over and the more time we have, the better. And I think it’s great that Tony Khan has gone for the third hour being a whole separate show instead of a three hour wrestling show. Because when the other place went to a three hour wrestling show, that’s when I stopped watching really. Or I stopped watching as intently, I don’t watch anymore.
“When I was going to make a bridge from boxing to wrestling I was watching all the wrestling everywhere. Because I wanted to become a wrestler so I had to watch it to know what to become. And when they got the three hours, I didn’t watch it as fervently because it’s too long. Two hours is the perfect time for a wrestling TV show. It’s exciting, it’s action packed and the third one hour show will be even more exciting. Even more action packed with all the same talent and half the time to fit it in. So it’s good, it’s going to be really good.”
