  1. Also the Domino’s PiP add during the pizza cutter spot was just fucking tremendous

  2. Just say you have to be vaccinated with proof to attend AEW shows. Let these fuckin’ morons who think it’ll turn you into Magneto or whatever just be deprived of live entertainment and whatever else. I’m so sick of catering to these nutjobs and them ruining it for everyone else that has done what they’re supposed to. Goddamn.

  5. So one potential positive in this is if this scandal is henceforth referred to as “PizzaGate”… fewer Googling morons will be fed bizarre conspiracy theories.

  6. Actually while I am at it - please stop posting every Austin Aries/Val Venis shit tweet too They really don't need to be amplified and we really don't have the energy to have to moderate the fallout

  7. At this point, I'm not convinced Jericho should try a 90.

  8. He's a former Drug Addict and a one time Bank Robber, who served more than his full sentence, got clean, and stayed out of trouble. He goes to Church and doesn't like to admit it (it's a personal thing to him; He's not an evangelical or anything. It's just going through addiction and getting out of it, a lot of people find religious belief helps with handling life after. Plus he's still grieving his brother).

  11. The Tony Khan Rich kid diss is weak. This is a ‘rich kid’ spending the family money on weekly Wednesday night wrestling parties for all wrestling fans to enjoy. He’s also saved American wrestling from drowning in shit. I love benevolent rich kids like this.

  14. I think being able to interrupt a count by pulling the ref out of the ring without drawing an immediate DQ is one of the Attitude Era's stupidest additions to the wrestling canon. And that's saying something.

  15. Guys. I don't know if you were aware, but Dave is weird.

  16. The big mistake was not having the Wyatt Family take over WWE from the Authority somehow. I mean it probably would have been Steph possessed by Sister Abagail but …

  17. Bray rules. Best gimmick of the past decade. One of the best mic-workers and one of the most creative people, too. He was in the best match the WWE has maybe ever had (Vs. The Shield), had Daniel Bryan’s best match during the YES! Movement run (Royal Rumble), was the foil Bryan’s biggest pop, was one of the first reasons anyone went out of the way to watch NXT and more. I have little interest in seeing CM Punk or Daniel Bryan or Chris Jericho in AEW. Those guys had their visions in WWE executed for long periods of time and we saw what they were able to do. But we never saw a fully actualalized version of Bray. That I want to see.

  18. Glad to know this is the quality of posting I can expect over the next few months. Are people getting upset at their own fantasy booking? You don't need Punk or Danielson challenging for any belts for awhile. They are going to draw just by virtue of being there. They can wait until the first night of honeymoon being over before mixing it up with the title scenes and the long-term storylines around them.

  19. You know Domino’s is so against this, yet they sponsored an angle that promoted grave robbery, and identity theft in the 90’s.

  20. Something I want to really credit AEW with here is the fact that, though I'm pretty heartbroken with Hangman's loss, I have confidence there's a plan of some sort. I'm plain "my guy lost" sad instead of "Fuck this company!" mad, and there's a gulf of difference there.

  21. The ability to raise questions big and small that fans want answered and then to pay them off in a satisfying way is by far the biggest thing WWE has been missing for many, many years. Since the Punk stuff and Bryan's WM win. "Are they going to let Nikki survive Charlotte?" is not a compelling question in 2021. "How are they going to handle Alexa vs Randy?" isn't really a compelling question. "Will they kill Roman's momentum by giving Edge the win he came back for?" isn't a compelling question. "How are they going to use Nick Gage on cable TV?" "Who is the third trial?" let alone stuff like Punk and Bryan and the very thought of who might come through the door next. When's the last time WWE raised a question even to the level of "Who is the third trial?" The Styles Rumble debut? New Day breaking Demolition's record? How they'd handle Kofi/Brock (which then goes to the other half of it: the payoff)? It's pretty slim pickings for the back half of the 2010s.

  23. "Woke Wrestling Entertainment" 1) Saying "woke" as a pejorative = just coming right out and telling me you're a P.O.S. 2) Drake calling WWE "woke" is hilarious to me on many, many levels, all better left discussed on Discord.

  24. If the series doesn't end with Vince swaggering out of the courthouse with "No Chance in Hell" playing, why even bother.

  25. With the latest Secret Santo coming to a close, I am going to take a couple of months off from posting on the DVDVR boards. I'll likely keep lurking, and I reserve the right to chime in if I feel like it, and I will most likely resume posting around my birthday in early October. Might make that my birthday present to myself. I'd planned to make it to 1000 posts before taking a break. Didn't quite get there. Thought about not making any kind of "see ya" post, because I don't want to make a deal out of it, but I know I sometimes wonder if a regular poster is OK if they don't post for a few days and I (perhaps naively) wouldn't want anyone to worry about me if I just disappeared. I'm more than fine. Getting my second vaccination tomorrow. My wife is very busy (she's a nurse, and often works at vaccination centres on her days off) as are my daughters (who are in prep for another ballet performance while taking care of their pets and working through their massive pile of summer break homework) but we are all happy and healthy and handling the summer heat and humidity just fine so far. I'm really looking forward to enjoying my local izakaya and hanging out with my excellent drinking buddies again. Anyway: It's a great time to be a fan of AEW right now, and it's pretty likely to become an *amazing* time while I'm on hiatus. If the current hot rumours turn out to be true then AEW are heading into crazy dream match territory. Even if Bryan doesn't show up, there's so much to look forward to with a new show and all of the recent additions. I'm so happy that there is a major pro wrestling company, with an international TV deal, owned and operated by people who love wrestling and respect their fans. It's an amazing thing. A dream come true. We are all so lucky to be able to enjoy this right now. It's been fun discussing AEW and other things here. Helped me, in a very real way, to get through some crazy times over the past year. Thanks for that. See ya!

  26. So many anti-Gage marks triggered by his existence, the very idea of him popping a rating, and finally him actually popping a rating.

  27. We closed on our house yesterday! Already got 99% of the vinyl moved (I have one box I might want to split up and the three boxes of 45s) plus glass, china, framed stuff, and some garage. Of course someone didn't fill out paperwork right and got chewed out, and literally at the last minute someone fouled up again and wouldn't let us fill out a check, instead insisting on wired money though Illinois law was changed a couple years ago -- and by last minute I mean our lawyer sent it at something like 2:15 PM with a deadline of 2:30. Really nice house too, a ranch style with big open kitchen + great room, exotic plants all over (the owner was a landscape constructor that worked on Michael Jordan's house), and a back walkway that leads straight to a business complex with restaurants. Maybe now I can just work on picking up the pieces.

  29. Other than the main event, that was Workrate AEW. That was a LOT of wrestling. TK is a MidSouth mark after all.

  30. I’m interested in the Hangman loss. I was so sure he was winning, but he doesn’t look weak being the last on his team taking on Omega and The Young Bucks. Add on top he lost due to his leg being grabbed by Nick the same way he screwed the Bucks vs FTR way back when. I haven’t been this emotionally invested in a single wrestler’s arc towards their moment in a long time. We’ll see what happens going forward and how everything plays out.

  32. Just parked at the Bojangles Coliseum. People are still wrapped around the building (doors opened at 6:00, it’s 6:13). So many more people lined up compared to the last time they were here. should be fun.

  34. I'd tell all of the schmucks hating on Biles to try walking a mile in her shoes if I didn't think half of them couldn't nip down to the corner without strapping into a Rascal first.

  35. I was having a really similar conversation with an old friend last week (he works for WWE corporate, coincidentally). The conclusion we came to is that selling WWE diehards on AEW/NJPW/TNA etc. is like opening an Italian restaurant somewhere in the southern or middle US: it's gonna be really hard to convince the customers "this is REAL Italian food!" when they've had nothing but Dominos for the last 25 years. To them, that's for better or worse, just what pizza *is.*

  36. Gotta be careful with what you put into your body. Nothing more important than your health. Also, this post violates HIPAA. *slams grey goose* Edit: To be clear, I went to grey goose because my illiterate ass saw "Jethro" and autocorrected to "Jericho."

  37. We have required vaccinations to attend schools here in the US for hundreds of years. My new vet wouldn't even touch my cats without proof of rabies shots. Now we might miss Dynamite in a packed stadium because Jethro suddenly believes in his body, his choice? I'm so fucking fed up with all of this. TK himself can check my vax card at the door for all I care.

  38. Nick Gage may not be a world class athlete, but his presence is fantastic. Loved the Leduc-Abdullah-Sandman-George Steele vibes.

  39. AEW is a crazy fucking promotion. I mean, seriously, what the hell is going on?!!? Nick Gage and Chris Jericho in a full-on deathmatch, they pretty much confirm they’ve signed Punk and now Juvi! Oh, and Tanahashi!
