  1. i want to live in the world where Coach Tony addresses it in this way: "William Regal is no longer a part of AEW. He has accepted a much larger role with a different wrestling promotion. Now, I am pleased to announce the new head of Ring of Honor, William Regal!"

  5. Dalton Castle and the Boys are ready to break some hearts. Castle waits for the Boys to do some stuff before going TOTAL Steiner. The Boys and Castle TWIRLING, TWIRLING TO FREEDOM! I don't see them getting past the Gates Of Agony, but you gotta wrestle the matches. Abadon takes on Leva Bates! Abadon needs to get on TV to boost some ratings. Nice Northern Lights Suplex by Bates! Leva Bates is getting some stuff in. German Suplex by BATES~! Abadon kicks Bates in the head and that's that. Awesome! Leon Ruffin gets entrance music! He gets to get CRUSHED by Brian Cage. Ruffin gets some niftiness in before Cage OPTS to destroy him. Leon Ruffin is replacing SERP and Fuego as the New King of YouTube wrestling. Ruffin has a COMEBACK! Ruffin is waaay fun. GREAT LARIAT by Cage. WEAPON X! Brian Cage is totally awesome. That was good. WEAPONEXCELLENCE OF EXECUTION! LEGIT HEAT! The Brick City Boiz! How will they be Chokeslammed? Sonjay is a HEAT MACHINE! It's a meeting of New Jersey dudes! Satnam chucks one of the Boiz into one of the Boiz on the floor! SIDEWALK SLAM! ATHENA! ATHENA! ATHENA! Becca gets to get the fuck beat out of her. Athena is like when Fit Finlay showed up in WCW. Becca gets in some stuff! Athena waits to kill her. Anthony Henry! The poor man's Trent Barretta takes on Trent Barretta! Barretta bumps like FREAK for Henry and Henry is AWESOME crushing Trent against the barricade. Maybe Henry is the middle class version of Trent. Nice Backdrop Driver by Trent. Awesome! Released Dragon Suplex by Trent. Nice DDT! I always forget how awesome Trent is. Shining Wizard FOR TWO! SWEET AVALANCHE FALCON ARROW by Henry! Great nearfall on the toprope Double Stomp by Henry! Trent fucking CRUSHES Henry on the apron. Nice Lariat by Trent. Nice Piledriver by Henry! Roll up is countered into another roll up by Trent for the win! That was fucking GREAT!

  6. Garvin getting a monster face pop for knocking out Dusty is one of my favorite moments. Bonus points for Windham being a complete dick by still putting The Claw on an unconscious Rhodes anyway.

  7. Can't tell if serious. Dixie being told Spike didn't want to work with Russo then hiring Russo and lying to the network about it is NOT the same as Tony being told WBD don't want performers on their TV, and very publicly giving them a job where they.... aren't appearing on WBD TV. He signed them to ROH & has made them PPV only. He's not hiding anything. He's not being deceitful. He isn't lying to them. He is abiding by their ask. You are doing some real fancy mental gymnastics to make this confirm to your bias.

  8. The Khan's net worth is currently... $11.8 BILLION according to Google. AEW is going nowhere. This is TK's passion and even if they lost TV and were losing money hand over fist he'd be fine paying for it forever and creating his own streaming service to distribute it. That's not how he's running it. He's running it like a legitimate business and trying to make money with it. But a publicly traded company is on way shakier ground than legitimate billionaires. WWE is always one really bad Saudi incident away from their stock tanking. They are in bed with some pretty unsavory stuff even if they have thus far kept it light and positive. All this doom and gloom or pontificatating that WWE is on so much more stable ground is a bit misguided to me. The truth is neither one of them are going anywhere. A talent would be better off decideding where they want to be based on how often they'd like to wrestle. In AEW you won't eclipse 25-30 TV matches in a year most likely. In WWE you'll be hitting 50-60 TV matches a year. Do you prefer visibility and TV time, regardless of the importance presented on it, or do you prefer less is more and preserving your body? Neither choice is right. Neither choice is wrong. It's a preference thing. And that should be what talent base their decision on, not internet sleuths perusing the finances of billionaires lol.

  9. Either that or do a live Battle of the Belts and have FTR vs Acclaimed main event that. It would be the first BotB that anyone would give a shit about.

  12. I'm playing catch up but... I really appreciated Kip and Penelope getting under Reynolds' skin with the 10 stuff. That's the sort of "everyone is in one shared universe" stuff you rarely see. The crazed look on Solo's face before he missed the double stomp (Which led into the Blue Thunder Bomb) is literally the best thing he's ever done.

  19. I'm in ideally if the match is on YouTube. If not YouTube, Dailymotion. I've never taken part in any of these and I think I suck at match reviews but I'll do my best. I've seen very little of Nick Bockwinkel (sorry, @Matt D), Joshi (sorry) or the late great Mr. Brodie Lee away from WWE/AEW. Cheers!

  21. I think the answer is to go to a time limit draw, have FTR's Final Battle opponents (Ass Boys or Kingdom) attack AFTER the time limit is over, have FTR and Acclaimed vow to fight again soon, and then run it back at Revolution if FTR sign extensions. The problem is that you don't want either team to lose (yet).

  34. extra Bash 88 notes: having a 30 minute time limit for the US Tag Team titles one match after having a 20 minute time limit for the World Tag Team titles is slightly inconsistent but i'm sure that they negotiated an extra 10 minutes into the match. Another good match with the Midnights and Fantastics as per their usual. The forces of evil win after a chain shot. Then Cornette comes down and our heroes beat him up a little and take off Tommy Young's belt to get some shots in. Also the Maryland State Athletic Commission gets mentioned during MX/Fantastics (da da daaaa) The Tower of Doom looks impressive, the rules explanation is a bit wordy, there are some giant fucking ladders (Ladders of Doom?) for this thing... and apparently this Tower Of Doom match is so huge that Kevin Sullivan, Gary Hart, and Paul Jones have teamed up for The Tower Of Doom. I think they started this match by sending the two oldest competitors (Ivan Koloff and Ronnie Garvin) up ladders to the top cage and this thing is fucking bizarre and then they opened up the trap doors and I thought one thing Like seriously. What drugs were involved with this idea. Going from the first two matches to the Tower of Doom is a change. Multi man cage matches with escape rules make the people leaving the cage look like complete idiots. Points for creativity but that was a mess. And I believe they did it a few more times *before* Uncensored 96 Windham vs Rhodes: I'm pretty sure I haven't seen a 5 minute long clawhold spot until this match. So Ronnie Garvin got through the Tower of Doom, went to the back, and then turned heel on Dusty (which, IIRC, didn't go anywhere aside from Ronnie Garvin leaving the company) With the combination of all the other matches and the main event, the price for freedom really is most of the babyfaces losing (aside from the Tower of Doom) And upon seeing the trickle of blood stoppage ending in context.. 1) kinda remarkable they did two "make the fans think the babyfaces won the title" endings on the same card and the fans bought it both times 2) Flair would have tapped a gusher if the ending was "the match is stopped due to Flair's bleeding and the title can't change hands" 3) how much would Flair need to bleed to make a blood stoppage not seem like bullshit? man.... this card just fucked over babyfaces all night, it's sorta remarkable even if they kinda lit money on fire with these endings

  35. The Usos take on Matt Riddle and Kevin Owens! Owens is awesome. He starts off by beating the crap out of Jey. Moonsault on Jimmy! Riddle tags in one has to assume that he is going to become our face in peril and before I can finish typing, he is already taking an ass beating. Riddle makes the hot tag and Owens starts off with a Swanton! SUPERKICK PARTY! Solo Sikoa and Kevin Owens would be fun. Usos hit a Dudley Death Drop on Riddle for the win. That was good. Postmatch, Solo Sikoa does the Umaga Spike onto Riddle! HE then CRUSHES Riddle's head in a chair! OH NO! A TRIPLE THREAT MATCH! I hate triple threat matches. It's Asuka versus Rhea Ripley versus Bayley! Ripley is still VADER and she is a total monster, throwing Asuka and Bayley all around the ring. Asuka and Bayley finally start double teaming Ripley and then turn on each other. Asuka is awesome battling against Ripley. They do very elaborate things. Asuka is the glue to the match. I want to see Ripley versus Bayley. They have a lot of nearfalls with the third person making the save. Ripley with a beautiful Northern Lights Suplex. Ripley takes herself out. Bayley pins Asuka! That was like every triple threat match where there were a lot of hints at how good a singles match would be between all of those involved. Rhea Ripley is so awesome. That was good for a triple threat match. Mustafa Ali and Austin Theory have a match for the US belt! Nice Tope by Ali! Ali bumps all over the ring for Theory. Awkward moment off the top in the corner into a beautiful DDT by Ali as Theory sells it like a circus acrobat. Dolph Ziggler comes in and randomly causes a dq. BOOOOOO! The OC takes on Baron Corbin and the Alpha Academy. Chad Gable is top six in the world so we await Gable versus number five, AJ Styles. En Lieu of that, he battles the Good Brothers which is fine. Great Lariat by Corbin. Styles finally tags in and he succumbs to the treachery of the Alpha Academy. We finally get Gable and Styles in the ring together. Nice Blue Thunder Bomb by Corbin. Nice Spinebuster by Karl Anderson. NICE Suplex by Otis on Luke Gallows. The Good Brothers hit the Magic Killer on Chad Gable for the win. That was really good. Akira Tozawa takes on Dominick Mysterio! Dominick hits a nice Love Machine Splash for the win. OH NO! A TRIPLE THREAT MATCH! I hate triple threat match. So what I'm taking away early is that I really need to see Big Time Becks versus Alexa Bliss. Becky hits an EXPLOIDER on Nikki Cross! Becky outclasses Cross and Bliss by a lot and Bayley versus Becky will be good. They still do the match. Nikki Cross is the glue to this match. IYO SKY and Dakota Kai hit the ring and take out Becky! Alexa Bliss pins Nikki Cross! I imagine Bliss loses to Bayley next week. That was a good episode of RAW.

  36. They probably have deep fryers in packs of ten. Place is ridiculous. I worked in one as what turned out to be a fucking dishwasher in the bakery for about a week before walking. They checked the floor grates with a knife! EDIT: Oh btw, this place gives out food samples like Sam's Club here in the States. Trust me, that dude maxed.

  37. Hanage Shinno is back again! Versus NICKY BOY! HEY! Cagematch.net was wrong! It said NICKY BOY won this match. Shinno with the flash pin! Postmatch, the Factory RETAIN THEIR HEAT! Totally awesome! NYLA! It's Thunder Kitty! She takes a beating like a champ. Alice Crowley is bulking up. Something is up with Vickie! It's Kiera Hogan! It's Nikki Victory! SUPERKICK! Victory with a nearfall. WRECKED EM! Hogan should go the ATHENA route and start beating the hell out folks. NICE Backdrop Driver by Hogan! The Outrunners are the best enhancement talent of December! The Martins are SPECTACULAR! The Outrunners ARE the Mod Squad! The Outrunners are fucking AWESOME. Matt Hardy is BREAKING! EMI! EMI! EMI! It's Madison Rayne! Emi starts beating on Rayne early! SPANKY BUTT! Madison goes on offense! EMI wins with La Majistral after a BEAUTIFUL eye rake! Lee Moriaty takes on SERP! SERP uses lucha stylings to counter Moriarty's BattlARTS stylings. SERP fights against losing number 100! Border City Stretch puts SERP into triple digit losses. Hey! It's Facade! He gets to get beaten to death by the Gates of Agony! It's Dan the Dad! Dan is OVER in Indy! Facade is awesome in this. His set up for the Drill Claw was so such a lunatic set up. This was your match of the night so far. Alex Reynolds starts off totally ATHENA on Kip Sabien! Daddy Magic is awesome. Reynolds is laying it in. Toprope Double Stomp for TWO! Reynolds hits a Tiger Suplex! Penelope distracts Reynolds! Sabian with a win! Konosuke Takeshita! Aaron Solo! Solo is with NICKY BOY! Lard Boy is OVER in Indianapolis! Takeshita hits a SWEET in ring Rana! BLUE THUNDER BOMB! GREAT EVEREST GERMAN SUPLEX FOR THE WIN! Konosuke Takeshita is fucking AWESOME.

  38. Special Whole-Buncha-Gordlow's-Favourites Edition of Elevation Write-up Legit way more stoked for this than I was for RAMPAGE Higane Shinno is from Ehime! I have been to Ehime several times, as my mother-in-law is from the neighbouring prefecture. I love Ehime! I think even most gaijin who live in Japan never make it out there. The small city of Matsuyama is in my top 5 or 10 places in Japan. The onsen there looks just like the one from Spirited Away. i was gonna say "Too bad Nicky Boy's gonna kill him" but then AEW gave us the SHOCKING UPSET (spoiler). Hot damn! I wonder who will team with Shinno vs Nicky Boy & Solo. Maybe Lard Lad?!?! Comoroto, like Hobbs, somehow seems to keep getting MORE jacked. Unreal. LOVE the ending to that match! I generally enjoy Nyla more as a Twitter personality than as a wrestler, but Shafir tying ladies in knots and Nyla subsequently crushing them really works as a tag team deal. Plus they are building an intriguing "Disinterested Vickie" storyline here, too! LOVE Kittie LeFleur's Old School look! Kiera Hogan looks great in there, in both senses, but I was hoping she'd work more as a face and play to the crowd a bit, now that she's an ex-baddie. Outrunners also have a great old-school look and style! I am intrigued by the Indianapolis Indie Scene. Is this a thing there? I like it! Outrunners vs FTR, please! Maybe next time AEW hits Indiana. Top Flight gets a big crowd chant right away, then goes out and EARNS it. The Ethan/Matt/PP story they are telling here is pretty great. I love YouTube-exclusive stories. Way to reward the really hardcore fans, AEW! If they put Madison over Emi, I riot! We Will Chop You gets more over with the crowd every week. Sadly, they didn't pop for Tea Time this week. Tigastyle! Sir Pentico!! Jacked Up Luther!!! Big Cass. Will Luther and Cass get into it on the outside? Sadly, no. Big Paul adds some frisson to the match by saying Serp is 99-0 in AEW. Even heel announcer Matt Menard excitedly pulls for the underdog here. To no avail. (spoiler). I am enjoying ALL OF THIS so very much. Then we get GATES OF AGONY & Brian Cage. Local Guy Dan Adams, who wears glasses and dad shorts, is a huge crowd favourite. Awesome. Cage catching Neon Ninja in vertical suplex position is totally sick! YES! Dalton & The Boys come out to challenge the hoss team! Team Castle representing 2020s style wrestling. Cage & GoA representing 1990s hoss style! Oh boy oh boy oh boy! Presumably on the ROH PPV. Great addition! Reynolds vs Kip! Another fun YouTube-exclusive minifeud! Announcers do a great job of explaining it without over-explaining. And you can feel the hatred in the ring. TAKESHITA gets the YouTube main event! And Nicky Boy comes out with Solo! Oh baby! Takeshita & Shinno vs The Factory! Give it me! Takeshita gets a MASSIVE POP and they are maybe doing an Elite Recruits Lard Lad Story! That was GREAT! Thank you, DEAN, for the heads up. Also, w/r/t Ehime. Their mandarin oranges are famously delicious. They make a special orange juice there named Pon Juice. If you go to a convenience store in Matsuyama you can buy Pon Juice flavoured EVERYTHING. Pon Juice flavoured Pocky, chewing gum, hard candies, gummy candies, etc etc etc. I recommend treating that stuff like Takeshita treats Cinnabon. Also try the grilled fish cakes called jakoten.
