  4. Here is how this story goes: 1) Punk does shoot-y style promos and they are irritating because the WWE doesn’t really do that right now and it hasn’t missed a beat. There are quickly diminishing returns but people pretend to like it anyways. 2) Punk gets hurt in about six weeks. 3) Punk comes back and some drama happens and he’s gone by SummerSlam.

  9. i don't know if anybody else cares about this, but i was watching an old episode of TNA Impact this morning and who do i see? future UFC champ Daniel Cormier. They brought out a couple people from the 2004 Olympic wrestling team. No promo or anything like that (or even a chyron), but i bet DC got a big kick out of it since he was a big pro wrestling fan. https://youtu.be/8XvOs6sCLgU

  10. Why not both? I mean both screaming at each other that the other ruined their perfect plan, until they both stop, stare at one another and then start making out in frustration would be pretty funny.

  13. I agree, but to repeat a frequent complaint: War Games and Hell in a Cell shouldn't be gimmick PPVs. They should pop up when a storyline calls for them. Then just make sure the men and women get about the same number in the long run and you're fine.

  14. So has Britt. I can actually see a scenario where the devil pulls the mask off to reveal it is Britt, and then Adam Cole nails MJF from behind, and we find out it was the two of them working together all along. Maybe the other two ninjas are Perry & KOR? That would set the stage for Strong/Bennett/Taven vs Cole/Perry/KOR matches.

  19. Brody is very well protected, but Kingston is one of hte 2 favorites in his block in a booking perspective. It's also 100% the right call to put him behind early. Makes the Kingston/Danielson match being next really interesting, my gut says that one might be a draw.

  20. Just to be clear: The bald guy flexing for the camera during Lady Frost vs Julia Hat was NOT me. I have a ton of thoughts and a zillion crappy dad jokes. For example: ALWAYS great to see Rocky! SO much *WRESTLING* on this show! (Hook, Shibata, Garcia, Wheerler...) And so many good big meaty men (Dutch, Brody King, Big Bill, Limitless...) The return of Malakai's perfect sing-a-long theme!!! Yes!!! GNARGNFRZT!!! BLARGENFRSAT!!! or Now we know what killed off the dinosaurs! It was CHAIRS! The Two Knee Storm! (From Buddy & Black, the new Killer Bs) etc etc etc BUT I am just SO HAPPY we got our Week One Upset. I was SURE Garcia was going to get it, because they were learning so hard into him being the underdog (and because Claudio is very giving) and when Garcia lost I felt like, "I guess we are just going chalk all the way. Oh well, at least we'll get a bunch of excellent fights." But, of course, Mad King is also Bryan-level giving in the ring. And him having to claw back from being one down is PERFECT booking. And Brody King getting the first upset win is also perfect, because Brody King is awesome. Way to go, AEW! Way to respect tradition. It's like Ned Stark getting killed at the end of season one. Now we KNOW anyone can go down for three at any time. Oh boy am I ever STOKED now!!!!! BRYAN vs KINGSTON!!! SWERVE vs SWITCHBLADE!!! CLAUDIO vs BRODY KING!!!! CHICKEN vs ROOOOOSH!!!!! F'n BRYAN DANIELSON vs EDDIE KINGSTON!!! And Kingston almost HAS TO win to stay in contention!!! . Edit: Speaking of freaking out: I just checked and there isn't one single match from today's three-hour show or Thanksgiving Dynamite that we can play on Fight Forever using the in-game roster! We can, however, do: And at least Orange vs Mox and Jericho & Kenny vs The Young Bucks are possible!

  22. Surprised to see the Pure title change hands on Rampage, especially so close to Final Battle. the video promo from Yuta before it was really good and set the stage for the match nicely. liked Copeland's promo challenging Christian for Montreal next week. Malakai Black mentioned CM Punk and called Claudio "Cesaro" !! Dante Martin is BACK! Lee vs. Lee was fun. Great main event from Brody vs. Eddie. Good thing for Eddie it wasn't 'defending the titles in each of his matches' Next week we get Moxley/Lethal, White/Swerve, and Briscoe/Rush on Dynamite + Bryan/Kingston, Claudio/Brody, and Garcia/Andrade on Collision.

  23. I tuned into Rampage before switching over to Survivor Series. Romero is still a great utility guy and had one of Hook's longer matches. Statlander/Diamante was really good and set up Kris' next program with Mercedes Martinez, which should be good. Yuta won the pure title again in a nice outing with Shibata so that's one BCC guy with gold.

  28. They made a huge miscalculation when making this game (besides the dev time likely taking a year-plus longer than intended): they somewhat wisely realized they could only get the base of something worthwhile done for the first game; the issue is that they mistakenly believed they could deal with that as DLC and in truth they never will, the game needs a sequel and any effort spent on DLC for a dying (as a long tail experience) game is reducing the chance that said game ever gets made. Release some character packs but all real development needs to be spent on a full new release built entirely atop of what's been established, it is literally the only path to where everyone wants things to get.

  29. Akira Hokuto vs. Shinobu Kandori - April, 2 1993 Aja Kong & Bison Kimura vs. Bull Nakano & Grizzly Iwamoto - August 19, 1990 Kairi Hojo vs. Meiko Satomura - Jun 14, 2015/July 26, 2015 This is what I get off the top of my head. I love plenty more from different eras and still have plenty I haven't seen yet. These are ones I think back to more often than others and know I love. Hokuto/Kandori is probably up there as one of my favorites in general.

  30. Dear All Elite Wrestling, All of us here at the DVDVR strongly suspect that people from AEW at least occasionally lurk on these boards. Many of us kind of suspect that Tony Khan himself still looks in from time to time. It's my genuine hope that this thread will gain the attention of someone at AEW who has the power to do something about this. I am not kidding about that. I hope I have earned enough goodwill here that the mods will allow this thread and my fellow posters will respond here in good faith (even if they strongly disagree with me) Anyway: I am a fan. I have been a fan since day one. I love your wrestling shows, I love your video game, I proudly wear your t-shirts and hoodies. I want AEW to live forever. I mean this sincerely, and I intend it not as a complaint but as genuine advice: Please stop spitting in the face of your true fans and hardcore supporters. I am specifically talking about AEW Fight Forever, and the current debacle of overcharging for low-value DLC. It's a legit debacle. People are FURIOUS. And, the people who are most upset are those of us who love AEW and love Fight Forever the most. Those of us who bought in on day 1 and support you wholeheartedly and very much want your pro wrestling promotion and your video game to succeed. We all happily paid full price for what is clearly an unfinished game, trusting you when we were told that there would be a lot more game to come. Specifically, every person I know who plays Fight Forever has been hoping for: More match types, and a far more robust creation suite for making CAWs. I personally am very much hoping that we will eventually get a GM mode. That seems like a no-brainer. Tony Khan is OBVIOUSLY a fan of EWR-type pro wrestling booking sim games. As am I. As are all of my friends who play wrestling games. PLEASE give us a booking sim mode on Fight Forever. We don't even have a way to book cards/shows in the game, as things stand now. It sure would be fun to book a tournament in the game! We would all love more wrestlers, and continued updates to the wrestlers we have. Only a third of the wrestlers in the Continental Classic are available in the game now. Bryan, Kingston, Mox, and Andrade. No Claudio, Swerve, Garcia, Lethal, Briscoe, Jay, or Brody King. Keith Lee is available for download at an extra charge. That's two thirds of the wrestlers in the tournament not available unless you paid for the Limitless Bunny download. (I have made a decent Claudio CAW, with the very very very limited resources available). You'll probably want to charge us for Garcia, Swerve, Switchblade, etc... I don't agree with that, but it is what it is. It's standard "screw the customers" stuff rather than spitting in our faces. But...as far as I know, there isn't even any sign that most of them are even on the way. You gave us updated costumes for Jericho, Mox, Kenny, Luchasaurus, Britt... and a new hairdo for Trent. For free! And that was much appreciated. More of that, if possible, please and thank you. Instead of what we have been begging for: You gave us a Fortnight-type game. You are reportedly going to give us a Mortal Combat type ladder mode. Nice. Thank you. Nobody I know was ASKING for that, but it's (somewhat) better than nothing. But the current wide-spread impression is that the new mode, the new Dynamite arena, (and the new CAW Santa hat and reindeer horns that LITERALLY NOBODY was asking for) are ALL going to be behind a pay-wall. That we will have to purchase the (WILDLY overpriced) season pass or at least pay for more downloadable wrestlers to get at even that meagre extra content. And there is zero hint that anyone is working to give us any of the things we have been asking for since launch. Again, this is after we PAID FULL PRICE FOR AN UNFINISHED GAME, trusting that you'd fill it out for us. And again, people are FURIOUS about this. Not just any people. Hard core fans. The YouTube guys who have been promoting and defending this game for months are all making angry videos now. The comment sections are unanimous in agreement with them. All of my friends who play this game (a small group, but we are all passionate AEW fans) are in stunned disbelief that we are being screwed over by the company we have loved and supported from Day One and had been waiting for and dreaming of, for years. THOSE OF US COMPLAINING NOW ARE NOT THOSE WHO HAVE BEEN BELLYACHING ABOUT EVERY LITTLE THING SINCE THE GAME WAS RELEASED. We have been happily enjoying the half-a-game we were given at launch while patiently waiting for you to deliver the rest of the premium-priced experience that we paid for. And repeatedly telling the bellyachers to just be patient. Your company has so much good will. The impression you are giving here is that you are eager to burn through that good will as fast as possible. When good will is dwindling, as it is now, it can be built back up. Once the good will is gone, however, it's gone for good. I am sure people are willing and happy to pay for The Acclaimed. Everyone loves them, after all. I don't agree with that model, but I can accept it. Just, please don't hide basic gaming content behind that same paywall. Look at No Man's Sky, for example. Like Fight Forever, it was a victim of very high expectations at launch and people were disappointed by what they got out of the box. But, they kept adding content and updates FOR FREE and now they have a massively successful game and and endless supply of customer good will! It's a good example! Please consider following it. Please consider making a Huge Announcement about how there will be more content coming that is not behind a paywall. Please go back to being the company that listens to and respects and communicates with its fans. Even if AEW and AEW Games are separate corporate entities (I don't know what the actual case is, here) the VERY bad impression currently being generated by the latter is certainly going to have an affect on the former. Please put out this fire. Thank you, In all sincerity, Gordi Whitelaw, AEW fan.

  32. Just remembered The Miz doing a ringpost figure four vs Gunther tonight. It was a good match, not just a good Miz match, although there was a little bit of a "this pop star is a real musician, as evidenced by this acoustic album" energy with how the commentary talked about The Miz at times. Yeah, he actually watched the product, but good luck getting the people who don't like him to buy into that.

  34. I had a feeling that would end disastrously given that Milroe had enough time to walk the Earth like Caine on Kung Fu, watch every season of Bonanza, take up advanced archery lessons, read War and Peace, come back to Jordan Hare, and still have about 4 hours to throw the ball to a somehow completely open Isaiah Bond in the endzone.

  38. There’s no way to way with gimmick PPVs like Wargames or Rumble or Hell in the Cell. You either have complaints about 2 on a show watering down the concept or complaints about the women not being treated equally.

  39. Watching Watts-era WCW Saturday Night 1992. There are a LOT of "upcoming young star babyface" angles overlapping (Erik Watts, Robbie/Bobby Walker, Marcus Bagwell, Shane Douglas, to a lesser extent Dustin Rhodes too). The break up of Rhodes and Windham is such a good angle though - I love the idea of Rhodes teaming up with either more established babyfaces (Steamboat), or guys you could argue are more over than Windham at the time, or made logical sense as a partner (Armstrong recently coming off a program with Pillman). Rather than Jimmy outright turn heel on Jey at Summerslam, it would have been cool to see Jey attempt to defend the titles with Cody, Rollins, Sami etc before Jey turned on him. I'm surprised it's an angle that's never been replicated again. For every bit I enjoyed this, Tony Atlas as a heel fucking suuuuuuuuuucked.

  41. As an old school 80's Philly heel fan, I love that Dominick turned heel and told his old man to go fuck himself cause he's got a hot goth girlfriend and a gang of cool punks to be part of. Totally worked out for him. He made the right choice.

  42. Viewing the game as an update of the old AKI engine, it's fine but has a lot of room for improvement. I don't think this version will get there however. The roster always seemed weird to me particularly the women's roster. The names are solid (I think the only missing regulars from what looks to be a 3Q 2021 cut off period are Emi and Penelope Ford, Velvet too), but some of the models are rough (the DLC Bunny is especially awful since they had extra time to work on it). The men's roster is curious, if I'm Uno, I might be miffed since I promote and stream games and I'm not even included. But there are a few names that caught me off guard being missing like Santana and Ortiz, Hager (having 2 out of 5 members of your main heel faction for most of your company's life span seems odd), Butcher and Blade, Private Party, The Gunns, Kip, Spears, the rest of SCU etc. I'm not even saying to include all of these folks, but they have their songs in the game and it's glaring they're not in it. Heck Max provided some songs for the game and they're DLC. The actual gameplay is fine although you can run into a habit of signature spam. Haven't touched Stampede since I'm not crazy about multi man matches personally. The story mode is repetitive since there isn't a great way to explore the different paths. Not being able to update the stats of an non-CAW in the story mode is also a choice. Also, the in game currency is odd, you end up with way more money than you'll ever spend very quickly so you just sit on it. And with the game options, I cannot figure out for the life of me why you can't just turn on the option for count outs or DQs. And I can't commit to the season 2 DLC without knowing what else is included and if they can't disclosure it before the first part is released, it indicates to me it's not properly mapped out which indicates bad planning and management.

  43. With my 12-year-old visiting her mom's family in Alabama this week, this was another opportunity to check out a grown-up movie. And the local theater has new ownership (Epic Theaters), so the days of those oddball movies that got a screening here for tax purposes and whatnot (The latest Steven Seagal film, etc.) appear to be over. Checked out NAPOLEON. It's a two-and-a-half-hour movie, but it didn't feel like that. I enjoyed it, but it could be a bit schizophrenic at times -- best way to describe it is a historical epic that wants to be a big-budget actioner and Oscar bait at the same time, as well as the Cliff's Notes version of Napoleon's life and times. There were a few high schoolers in the theater, and ...
