  1. If you actually think about it, Brawl for All is a perfect subject. We discussed this last summer (late July to be specifically) in this same thread, where @odessasteps succinctly hit it on the head. Not that you haven't had shoot fights on the same card as worked fights (I mean promotions in Japan already did this years earlier) before, but to do this during an era where kayfabe in North American wrestling was still critical is mind-boggling. Keep in mind, your biggest star at the time is a guy who is portrayed as the toughest SOB in the world and a mega badass. He was not a part of this. Und

  2. The Exalted One segment was cool until they revealed Brodie Lee, but then my one-year-old chose that exact moment to rip his diaper off and shit on the floor. Otherwise it was all good.

  3. I'm still laughing to myself thinking of Chuck standing there, wheels turning in his head where he can say literally anything, and he goes, "YOU THINK YOU CAN KICK MY FRIEND IN THE DICK?!"

  4. In the same context that WWE chose to portray their show as something they *had* to put out, and ehh, here it is, whatever, AEW really went and did their best with this tonight. Really good show. It made Kip Sabian and Shawn Spears seem interesting. That's no mean feat.

  5. Two things can be true. Those two things: 1) Ryan Satin is a douche. 2) Wresting shouldn’t be happening. Period.

  7. I don't want to be that guy... but AEW is just such a better run company than WWE from a creative standpoint. They did everything in their empty arena show that we had been asking from WWE and more.. They're just creative man..

  8. Satin is a WWE employee shitting on their direct competition. He has no real concern, he just wants to be a company man. At least by my opinion, anyway.

  11. It's amazing how much more interesting Kip and Penelope are with him as the valet. I'm not saying she's a better wrestler than he is, clearly she isn't, but the act just seems so much more fun this way.

  12. I don't know if this will get me looked down upon but Satin needs to shut up. If these guys weren't at ringside together, they'd be in the back together or at home together or wherever together. I definitely believe we are in a major, major situation but this is just whining, in my book. By his advice, wrestling shouldn't be happening period since that isn't social distancing.

  15. Broken Matt is a megababyface to AEW’s audience. Would be dumb to try to force him into a heel role. Brodie will get sympathy pops for a while (assuming there are ever fans again) but you can work with him as a heel in the long run.

  16. Well, it definitely had less "missing moves because we are looking at the audience."

  17. 1) I have zero problems with wrestling happening right now if it's done well. 2) I fucking loved this show. They did literally everything I asked for and it turned out better than I imagined it would be. I'm not sure how many times they can do this and pull it off, but at least for this week it was awesome, a lot of fun, and a welcome distraction from a lot of stress in the world.

  18. Let's go masked guys! Gambling and drinking at ringside. Paying Butcher and Blade to beat up Jurassic Express. MJF is a national treasure and needs to be protected at all costs. Also: Fuck them kids.

  21. This show was the epitome of being handed lemons and making lemonade. I thought AEW was going to die a death without fans to cater to, and this was far and away the least depressing live show of any kind I've seen. Referring to the next show as "on the next Dynamite" is an ominous sign though.

  22. Yeah, but the dirty little secret is... I guarantee you, someone on the WWE and AEW (and basically every North American & European) roster already has it. You're still contagious while you're asymptomatic, so everything with any kind of close contact is extremely high risk. The lack of testing is the only thing that's keeping the lights on for Wrestlemania.

  26. Leave it to Vince to not consider putting the other wrestlers in the audience. Because in WWE kayfabe all the wrestlers hate each other and fans are the dummies that give him money.

  27. I am a huge Jungle Boy fan and recognize this sort of miscommunication can happen, but I couldn't help but laugh my ass off watching Jake Roberts in the background holding his head down and covering his face to avoid being shown corpsing at that botch.

  29. My argument isn't with the statement itself. He is right. But he is a complete hypocrite because he basically works for a company that is doing just as much to work around it as AEW did last night

  30. Shouldn't he want people to get sick so he can pester and harass hospital staff so he can get that big scoop if the guy died?

  31. I loved the vignette wit Archer and Jake... Jake looking on sinister like in the distance.. his fucking promo ruled too. But then they go and have the Matt Hardy reveal and the Vanguard1 spot with Jericho's reaction played out like a movie filmed on live television.. the whole production of this episode was outstanding. So much good shit. But you know what else? They let the performers be themselves! MJF was hilarious all night. I think at one point he yelled "Hey I got 200 on you Tarzan, show me something!" And then Sammy and MJF doing karaoke to Judas playing out like

  33. AEW should've taken the precaution of inviting Satin to the taping because the coronavirus would've contracted him and died.

  34. This parasite should go ask Martha Hart about how much his de facto employers care for their emplo... er "Independent Contractor's" safety. Or how about ask the guys who ended up as hostages of a government who had recently killed and cut up one of their enemies (and apparently began the job while he was still alive).

  38. I loved how they not only put guys at ringside to create noise, but then took it to the next level and used it shoot angles and do bits throughout the show. This was a really strong first effort at this type of show, and if (CDC willing) they get to keep making more of these, I bet they’re going to get really freaking good at it.

  39. Pretty decent show, given the circumstances. The big factor I got out of it was that it felt much more lively than the shit WWE has been putting on. RAW and SD felt soulless and lifeless, and this didn't. They kept the lights down and had the other wrestlers cheering which made it louder, and it was pretty suffice. If this is how they do it for a couple months, it won't feel too awkward. None of the matches were too amazing but they were all pretty solid. The debuts of Hardy and Lee were great but it would have been a LOT more memorable with a real audience, but those are the breaks.

  41. I just finished Ori and the Blind Forest, since it's been on sale a lot leading into the sequel's release, and man, this game was always sold to me as "it's good" but that feels like it was undersold to me. This was incredible. One of the best platformers I have ever played. Obviously it's stunning visually and sonically, but it's so nice to play a game where the narrative and the action both keep up to that same high standard. There was only one puzzle I just didn't understand and didn't make sense to me, but other than that it was pretty close to flawless.
