    I don't know what to make of that Cody promo. He was just all over the place and I couldn't tell if he was baiting the fans, stroking his ego, trying to go full smark asshole, or what.

    Yes.

    It was mostly great, mostly cornball, way too meandering, but still entirely captivating. I think they're gonna get Sammy back on his horse and continue to build up their new guys like Page over Danielson but Cody brings so much more to the table and is on fire rn.

    I know we're getting a JE-Ass Boys match, but I'm ready for some Christian. Six man tag or (ideally) Christian vs An Ass Boy please. 

    Yeah, logical next step is the trios match. I'm cool with it. Great line by Christian on Billy never getting that big win.

    It was about them. They're part of Cody's Royal Family. 

    How ignorant of me.

    Prediction for next week? 

    Wardlow and MJF segment was fantastic. I appreciate that Max doesn't fake tan his hands. This has to hold out until Wardlow at least wins the revolution ladder match (and so much for fewer ladder matches when we'll get two in a little over a month).

    A much better show than last week. Enjoyed everything except the weirdly long Archer/Kazarian match. I don’t think it would’ve been a good idea under ideal circumstances, but especially not with Archer looking like he’s way out of shape, coming back from his health stuff.

    Yeah he was fighting for his life near the end. Jesus. 

    What happened to the FTR match? Somebody get flagged for covid? 

    Boy, that crowd sucked hard. Mox heckler, Cody hecklers (it wasn't going to catch on, this isn't about you, stfu yourself), dead for everything but sting and the opener in terms of matches. 

  5. Things I liked:

    They moved away from their tried and true formula like we asked. More than one match had women too. Lots of short matches. Almost all the angles hit. Cody is so unique right now. Mox telling the heckler to fuck right off and the rest of it. 

    Things I didn't like:

    Now, I know they aren't angling to put Hangmin vs. Archer on ppv. They wouldn't do that to us. I'll pass if that's the title match or watch at a friend's. 

    Andrade saddled with Hardy office, who I like, when he should be moving up. 

    No Julia turn yet. 

    Where the fuck is Lio, Tony? Where the fuck is Lio?!

    When I first saw Garcia, before I started diving into the indies work which changed my mind a little, my big takeaway was that he married the intensity and the technical skill and the logic and the research with an "I was born in 1998 and you will never understand my put upon grief” heel preciousness which I can appreciate having an almost 20 year old in the house.

    Yup, he and HOOK are really the zoomer boys that are here to stay and I love it. As a high school teacher, I see these kids every day lol. They've really nailed it both of them.

  7. I really, really enjoyed Busick back in his PWG and indies run prior to WWE. However, I think he missed his chance with AEW. He feels like the sort of guy that would've been semi-regularly featured in years one and two. Now? I don't think he'd fare much better than Nese, though he's far more charismatic.

    Spencer has always been vocal of his hatred of exclusives so he probably wouldn't make any of ActiBlizzard or Zeni's titles exclusive to XBox.  

    Halo has traditionally been Xbox only and Minecraft has only been ported to PC and Xbox, so those games / game franchise staying in house would not change the balance of power.

    They've already confirmed the next Elder Scrolls is Xbox (and Windows) exclusive. Starfield is exclusive. So he can't hate them that much. Their press release said:

    Quote

    “we will offer as many Activision Blizzard games as we can within Game Pass, both new titles and games from Activision Blizzard’s incredible catalogue.”

    They have recently released relatively big third party games as day one Game Pass releases, like Back 4 Blood, but for games by their own studios? I think this strongly suggests they'll be exclusives. I'm fine either way. Would suck for people without a good gaming rig or Xbox though.

  9. Why wouldn't they be exclusives? If elder scrolls will be exclusive so will other big games. Feel like Microsoft has future proofed themselves with their focus on game pass. Once consoles are a thing of the past, game pass will be the big deal. Bigger than it already is. 

    It's a fantastic service. I got a mega gaming pc recently and playing shit like Halo and Back 4 Blood with friends on their xboxes has been a blast. Haven't turned my ps5 on in months and don't see myself doing it for the foreseeable future.

    I don't think it's likely that Cole wins the title for quite a while.  I foresee a lengthy title run for Page for starters.  Cole wil lmost likely be tied up with the Elite at least until Omega comes back. I don't know if Danielson takes the belt off of Page, but I'd be very surprised if his title reign isn't at least 6 months after the story they told to get him here.

    I think Cole is losing to Page at Revolution. They've heated him up really well and I would think the blowoff with OC is coming at Beach Break next week. Bucks and Red Dragon will likely have a match at the PPV too, at least that's what they've been suggesting, so that would free Cole up for the big shot at Hangmin.

  11. GLEAT is becoming the great Japanese indie of our times, isn't it? I wish they'd just do more of a Battlarts fusion than separate the two styles, but this is rad. Hosokawa was Emi's latest trainee and looked pretty good in the lil bit of Chocopro I saw her in. How's she been doing in GLEAT?

    "Fuck it...just going to train myself." is always an interesting strategy.

    Should make for a good quip on Dynamite. That gym is loaded though and I wonder how they divvy up allotting focus and time for so many stars. There can only be so many top level coaches to go around, right?

    Is Everett really doing a "Giant" gimmick?  If so, that's hilarious.  Dude is billed at 5'9" and probably isn't that tall.

    I feel like I've seen about 320 Everett matches and 319 of them were either against Trevor Lee/Cameron Grimes or had him tagging with Lee.

    He's the Son of Andre, bro. In Deadlock, he is booked as hailing from Grenoble.

    So AEW drew 5,100 to an arena that holds 21,00. I looked it up The Reynolds Coliseum also in Raleigh holds 5,600 for basketball. Maybe they should have ran the Reynolds. It would have looked better on TV.

    Yeah, you could tell with the lighting that there were a lot of empty seats and that would certainly be a buzz killer for those that were there.
