    Huh, I guess his big muscle tits sealed the deal.

    It's the straps adjustment that really accentuates his muscle titties. 

    edit: shouts out to Powerbomb Symphony as a finish name. Fantastic stuff and my body is very ready for his inevitable face turn. We gotta be close, right? Is Punk beating MJF and the tantrum that ensues the breaking point?

  2. It's interesting Orange went from the most organically over act in the company in front of live audiences to Jericho leeching/"putting him over" and then transitioned into a seemingly half year program with Matt Hardy, whose character is a leech but is generally far more giving than Jericho, in which Hardy won with shenanigans and they just kinda moved on even after OC said it wasn't finished (I suppose they could do the AEW thing where they rekindle an old rivalry sometime next year and that would be fine). I really enjoy Hardy's act but that was too long and the wrong guy went over in the end. There were a few weeks where they needed to give Kenny a credible challenger on PPV and the triple threat ruled but it's a little disappointing to see where they've gone with Cassidy. Not sure what his ceiling is but he feels like he hasn't reached it yet, though maybe it's lowered after this, imo, fumbling. 

    Doesn't feel like Cole is losing anytime soon and more like he's being saved for Hangmin, so probably another loss with interference for OC. Hope I'm wrong because Cole has been so impressive in AEW so far that I think he could easily be heated back up for a title challenge, though he and the Bucks lost their last program too. I'm interested to see where they go here, tho a bit concerned too. Sure, Orange is and will still be over with a loss here of course but it does feel like they are missing something with him. 

    Does anybody think Rose wins? Even if they don't have Jade make the final, Rosa vs. Ruby is a way more intriguing match than Rosa vs. Rose (though it did deliver big time in the tournament earlier this year). 

    Malakai vs. Griff feels like it will be angle heavy. They teased a breakup of the Blond(e)s and Brody King joining House of Black. There's also Julia. Pillman is a better heel going off that bit of MLW where he was with Teddy (who is currently not in jail according to the twitter account), but overall has not been able to live up to the hype yet. Griff has gotten far less time to shine but usually does well when given brief time in the spotlight. I hope he does well here. 

    Six-man tag is going to be breezy and really fun. Dream team should win.

  3. Parnasse regains his lightweight title largely on his striking but he did well to survive a standing guillotine attempt in the middle of the fight and even controlled quite a bit of the fight on the ground. Good performance.

    Soldic hit Khalidov with such a nice judo throw in the first round I could hear Taz call it the "El Camino, bro." Soldic looked to be too fast and strong for Khalidov. He also kicked Khalidov in the dick. 😬 Vicious knockout after Khalidov started to recklessly come forward after finding some success with the lead right. Kept throwing it over and over even after Soldic clipped him. Soldic, with his back on the fence, bounced off and threw everything he had into a left hook haymaker while Khalidov leaned into it. Extremely brutal hammer fists to the unconscious vet. Yikes. Soldic is horrifying, man. I still think he could do some serious damage in the UFC. While he's traditionally fought at welterweight in KSW, he moved up to middleweight and looked bigger than Khalidov by quite a bit. Middleweight is pretty bereft of legitimate challengers. I could see him being at #3 or #4 in terms of skill in that division. Only guys I think are legitimately better than him right now are Adesanya and Whittaker. He's got a 72" reach, same as Costa even though Paulo is a couple inches taller, so I don't think size should be a big deal for him. Think it's time for him to make the jump now. He's 26, so he's in his athletic prime, he's still getting better as a fighter, but he's a physical freak and his power is horrifying.

    Edit: Video evidence

    😱

    better vid

    The sound of that left hook.

    Caposa saying Khalidov hadn't been knocked out since his first fight. He's fought 44 times since then.

    edit: @JLowe I can't remember who said it, maybe Bret, but I read putting a little conditioner in is the key to keeping the wet look for the whole match. Water just dries

    Bret should've followed that advice because he and Perfect had notorious goofy, puffed out frizzy hair halfway through their matches. Hangman has that too. I have long hair and same thing happens to mine. I've started using leave-in conditioner after showers and it does really keep your hair wet for a long time. I imagine Roman Reigns uses half a bottle before his matches.

  5. If the ratings are any indicator, it doesn't seem like there are too many people who have really stayed on board after the initial increase from Punk and Danielson. I wonder if some regular viewers from the first two years stopped watching for some reason. I know we aren't supposed to care about ratings but I find it super odd that they're low even after adding two legitimate stars. They did something like ~30k more viewers for this year's Winter is Coming compared to last year's and apparently the demographic swayed older than usual. What's going on?

    So any extra coverage could cut into a match like WCW would to a Steven Regal match because they need that extra time to show The Outsiders run the Steiner’s off a dirt road outside of Atlanta.

    That angle is something me and my friends still talk about to this day and was exceptionally well done. I think William Regal was fine.

    And did Taz say he squared off with Justin Liger?  I’d like to have a look at that tape

    Yeah, I had no idea they squared up but it's far from peak Taz, sadly.

    15.11.1992: Jushin Thunder Liger defeats Tazmaniac (8:02) NJPW Wrestling Scramble 1992 - Day 5. Courtesy of Cagematch of course. There was a tag leading up to the singles with Pegasus Kid and Samurai thrown in the mix.

    While I love the idea of more matches going to the draw, where do you go from here with Bryan v Page if not an immediate rematch?

    Yeah, I'm interested with where it goes from here too. It feels like holding off until the PPV is a bridge too far, but that's where it should happen. I'm fine with whatever they do and more than happy if we get to see these fuckers go another 60.

    I feel like this had more old school psychology with the limb work than Omega/Danielson but I liked the urgency in the latter. I don't think I could pick between the two, I enjoyed them both immensely. The crowd in NYC was also on another level too.
