    AEW - 2019

    I was arguing the notion that New Japan is strictly successful because it's purely wins and losses are counted like the whole promotion is a real sport when in actuality, they (or just Gedo by himself) understand the delicate balance between seriousness and making storylines matter. Suzuki-gun jobs all the goddamn time, but that doesn't diminish Minoru Suzuki or KES or ZSJ. It matters when any of those four drop a fall because those guys rarely lose cleanly. There isn't any type of 50/50 booking.

    I can honestly see either guy winning. The only thing I would be shocked with is it going the distance (I guess pun intended since it's being made for Philly).

    I agree with that, but at the same time, Inoki tried to make New Japan more real fifteen years ago and the level of push back from the fans nearly collapsed the entire promotion. That cat is out of the bag everywhere.

    Darren Till vs. Jorge Mavisdal will headline the 3/16 card in London with Leon Edwards vs. Gunnar Nelson as the co-main.

    It's awesome watching the BTS/rehearsals at Coppola's palatial Napa Valley home and on the set, and Oldman is nice enough to pretend that Keanu is on par with him.
  6. As far as I know, you still need a cable subscription and do the whole sign in to your cable provider -> redirected back to the app to view ESPN, ESPN2, ESPNU, ESPNews. I was trying to watch game 1 of the NBA Finals last summer and it took about 25 minutes on the WatchESPN/ESPN3 app to recognize my U-verse account. I think it happened because I had all the ESPN apps on my phone and was probably logged in to my old account I made YEARS ago. Hopefully, ESPN eliminates some of these and pushes all them into ESPN+.

    Okamoto just tweeted that Barboza vs. Gaethje would be on the Philly card the week after.

    The UFC is working on Edson Barboza vs. Justin Gaethje and Anthony Pettis moving to 170 to fight Wonderboy Thompson for the 3/23 card in Nashville.

    Yeah, I think that helped a bunch but they also had a very nice crowd at Microsoft Theater. Usually, you would need to be some type of star to draw both on TV and in the venue. Uzcategui has just been a guy floating around, and Plant was just an undercard guy for PBC who had some showcase bouts. They were a couple tiers below the Charlo twins in terms of who viewers would readily recognize. For those two, that's pretty damn impressive especially with a soft undercard in terms of matchmaking.
