  2. No doubt it is insanely hard to do. I can't stand WWE's style of production, but I am always VERY impressed at how clean their shows are for the most part. That's especially considering how many hours of live tv they do in a given week. I also get frustrated with the lack of quality in AEW's taped backstage segments. The point of taping something is that you can get it just right. For example, I would have had Red Velvet and Stratlander doing more takes on that promo from last night. There's no reason for it to have aired that way. Same with the Sydal promo. If you try a couple takes and it's just not working, cut it down to something super short and simple. Hell, if I was in charge of AEW's taped segments, the talent would HATE me. I'd be like David Fincher with the takes.
  3. Deeb's promo was like a lot of things on Dynamite: it wasn't inherently bad, it just was timed poorly. I really believe the biggest issue TK has right now is the timing of his segments/shows. There are a lot of things that get too much time (Deeb's promo and Rosa's recent one come to mind) and there are things that get rushed.
  4. Not all local TV people are union. Some stations are not at all union and some have union members, but not everyone. It's a mess.
  5. For what it's worth, local tv news contracts for on-air talent are basically the same as WWE's contracts (but for TONS less money). Definitely NOT saying that makes them ok, but just pointing out that it's not something exclusive to pro wrestling.

    Why does ESPN suck so bad at choosing football commentators?
  7. If AEW is still around and close to it's current state in 2024, they'd be fine losing MJF and Starks. Not that I don't think those guys are both really good, but they've just got SO MUCH talent on their roster. And who even knows how some of their younger prospects will come along, or even some wrestler who's just starting on the indies right now that might blow up in two years. That's the advantage of having a deep bench and allowing multiple people to shine. You don't have to worry about one or two losses tanking the whole ship. Cody's leaving hasn't even been a blip. Oh, he's got pyro and a countdown? Cool. He's also been feuding with Seth Rollins for months. Good for him.

    I read this last week. Makes Cohen's situation that much sadder. https://www.theplayerstribune.com/posts/tarik-cohen-mental-health-nfl-football
  9. Today's Dark card looks like a pretty awesome indie show.
  10. I think it's a good thing that we've stopped looking at wrestlers as pieces of meat whose sole purpose is to entertain us, damage to their bodies and brains be damned. That said, I think Darby would be doing waaaay crazier and more dangerous stuff if he wasn't doing these things in a wrestling ring week in and week out, so I don't worry about him as much.
  11. I thought this was pretty good. Not on the high end of MCU stuff, but not bad either. Don't let anyone tell you this was scary. Yes, it has horror-like elements, but it's miles away from being a scary movie. My five-year-old didn't blink at anything in this movie.
  12. Listen, I don't know you, but yes, you may be able to Google something just like Lalo, BUT do you look as suave while doing it? I doubt it. That's not a knock on you! Who among us could be so smooth? I'd say none. None could be so smooth.
  13. Have Claudio and Ibushi ever faced each other? Did it happen in Chikara? That would be one hell of a match.
  14. Miro/Joe would be badass. I don't think Joe has a ton of time left in the ring (not based on anything, just my own speculation) so I'd love to see TK burn through as many dream matches for him while we can.
  15. Count me as one of the people who find MJF's schtick to be a little forced and unnatural, but damn was he ON last night! That's the most natural I've heard him come off. He did an amazing job of tip-toeing the line between pandering face and heel. He didn't try to get boos, but he didn't totally change his act to do it. I am also decidedly NOT an Adam Cole fan, but I cannot deny that he's over as hell. He's one of those guys where I'm never going to seek out an Adam Cole match, but I find myself consistently surprised by how much I like his matches. I also don't personally want to see him win the Owen, but I can also see that it's not a stupid booking decision if he does.
  16. I like to think that if you were watching wrestling with Dean, it would just be him yelling these things out as they happen. Like, it's quiet and then Dean just shouts, "Shane Strickland is the most fucked up Robert Gibson in the history of Southern Style tag wrestling and THAT's awesome!" That would actually be a really fun way to watch wrestling.
  17. I noticed that guy a few months ago. I think he’s a real camera guy. They use his shot quite a bit. Claudio’s great and all, but I doubt he could shoot wrestling all that well. Now, they may use his being all covered up to do some kind of angle later, but right now, he’s an actual camera op.
  18. She's really good at short, intense promos. It's when she has to go on for a while that she seems to struggle.
  19. Dear, sweet Tony. If you are reading this, please, for the love of all that is good, please never give Pillman a live mic ever again. If you really love us, you'll do this one small thing. Please.
  20. I meant to comment on last week's Dynamite thread that it seemed like they were showing him more prominently last week. Might be coincidence, but he seemed to show up in more shots than usual.
  21. I'm taking my kids this weekend (5 & 11). My son (5) did great at the last Spiderman, so I think he'll be fine. He's not your typical five-year-old when it comes to movies. He'll sit through anything. Recently, he's watched Rocky, Rocky II, Little Women (the newer one) and Hoosiers. I warned him there may be a couple jump scares, so at least that won't be a surprise for him. I'm really looking forward to seeing this.
  22. I hated the first episode. I've enjoyed the series overall, but that one did not hit for me. I'm sure it'll get better, though. My thoughts on that first episode:
