  1. Johnny Gargano is now taking independent bookings. How long til he is back in AIW?
  2. They also have no creative for Elias. Well no shit. They gave his spot to Rick Boogs. How anyone can sign with WWE in the state they are in right now is beyond me. Money doesn't always buy happiness. Look at all of the talent gone from WWE in just 2020 and 2021 alone. I bet you could take that talent and build a company that would get higher ratings than raw and smackdown. Asuka deserves so much better as does the majority of the roster.
  3. I don't believe they announced his opponent yet but AIW is booking Suzuki in April also. The ONLY match that would make sense is Suzuki Vs Kingston. Book it John!!!
  4. DId I miss it or has nobody mentioned Joey Janella kicking the shit out of the fan that threw stuff at him in the ring?
  5. He absolutely is the best base in the world. Whenever the discussion comes up the answer is always Claudio. If you ever want to see just how strong Claudio is, go watch the ROH training videos he put out when he was challenging Nigel for the world title. He was giant swinging trees for fucks sake. The guy has no idea how strong he is either. I could not be happier that he is gone from purgatory and can be himself again.
  6. I think it would have helped. It did wonders for Roman Reigns and Hulk Hogan, and let me tell you it would have done a ton for Cena too had it been done at the right time (before he hit Hollywood) The son of a famous wrestler tends to get a lot of flack. Sometimes it works (Dustin, Hook, Greg Valentine, David Finley, Curt Henning, Ted Dibiase) You could argue that those guys had characters that distanced them from their dads. Hook is too new but you get my point I hope. For every Greg Valentine we have an Erik Watts, a Cody Hall, a David Flair. I put David Finley in the group because he has the makings of a star should someone in the US take a shot with him. Cody to me is a good hand but he tries too hard to come off as the second coming of his father. He has huge shoes to fill in that regard but he never will be Dusty. Dustin realized it pretty fast, Cody never has. Nothing wrong with that per se. If my dad was Dusty Rhodes I'd want to be just like him too.
  7. Was in 88-89 when Vince was booking a lot of inside jokes? Shocked he didn't come up with "Marky Mark" the markiest of marks. Could have been the prototype for Lex's Narcissist character.
  8. tickets go directly to your phone now. Sure there probably still are scalpers trying but Covid has made it much harder to do so. It's also made it harder to trust anyone outside of Ticketmaster when it comes to buying tickets as there are no physical tickets any more.
  9. Hero has been doing training seminars here in Pittsburgh. One in December and one last Sunday. He is still big but from what I saw/heard he can still go. I'd be shocked if they KOR don't return by Mania weekend. In fact, isn't there a Jokers Wild Battle Royale this Wed on AEW???
  10. Very true. This shirt in question was the white Ricola bomb t-shirt. I'm 6'ft 3 190 lbs and usually wear a large or XL (I shrink shirts easily) and this guy telling me I should wear a medium made me laugh. Until he showed me the tag on his to prove he in fact was wearing a Medium.
  11. I was about to call Pearl Jam and see if they could go to battle with Tony the Ticketmaster Khan and try to make prices decent. Tony if you are reading this and I have reason to believe you are: Make ticket prices great again!!!! Sincerely, all of us 99%ers.
  12. The heat with Hero shouldn't have been crushed. This stuff went down in what 2004? Back when Claudio was working indy's I was fortunate enough to see him and Hero on a monthly basis. Hero could be pretty straight forward but Claudio ALWAYS had a smile or corny joke to tell. He was one of the most outgoing wrestlers I'd seen. One of my friends worked him in a tournament and chopped Claudio. He said it was like chopping a tree. The other fun Claudio fact I have is that he wears a size Medium T-Shirt. Never would have guessed.
  13. So today was the big day.. AEW tickets on sale. I got into the office logged in to my Ticketmaster account, was number 2 in queue. Sweet right? So finally the moment of truth comes and I get my pick of the litter. I click on front row. My heart drops..... $900+ for 1 ticket. Are you fucking kidding me?! Smiley face shirt guy is paying $900 a pop for every show he attends?! ok, so I try for second row.... $650+ unreal!! I ended up getting the first level above the floor 5 rows back for $50+ fees which ended up being roughly $75. But damn, who is paying $900 a ticket?! In context I could get season tickets for an NFL team for that same price.
  14. Imagine the G1 this year if it had Claudio, Rusev, Brian, Punk, Mox, Kingston in it. Hell maybe add Cole for good measure. It has the potential of being stacked!
  15. Lmao I know but you know that the VKM Kiss My Ass club shirt would sell faster than any Bullet Club shirt ever did.
  16. you guys joke but you all know that a VKM Kiss My Ass club shirt would sell out in minutes on PWT. And you all would be buying it.
  17. I don't see CM Punk as being the Sting to MJF's Flair though. I really, really hope they don't make Punk gullible in this case. It doesn't fit his personality/character at all.
  18. I think the MJF promo was top 3 for best promo in AEW history. At the time I kept waiting for Wardlow to blindside Punk when he came out. Notice Wardlow wasn't there with MJF. When it didn't happen I said to myself "damn this is the best promo I've seen in years" I'm not sure how close they were to Long Island but part of me wonders if they thought MJF would get a face reaction like he did in NY. I really can't wait to see where this goes. One thing I know for certain is that AEW Battle of the belts II is going to be in Pittsburgh and I cannot wait to get my tix. AEW live is one of the best live wrestling experiences around.
  19. I hate to make this sound shitty but with all the talk about Brock being booked dominant. What about the Patriot?! He was the North American champion, the TV Champion, didn't lose for a long, long time. He was like the Hogan of GWF. As a kid I kept praying to see Dark Patriot unmasked!!
  20. GWF is one of my guilty pleasures. About 10 yrs ago I went and bought a 90+ disc set off of someone on Crazymax and it's still not enough for me. I used to watch them every day after school and then the Monster Trucks would follow. Funny I connected with Chaz Taylor and talk with him usually once a week. He just put out a classic GWF shirt for sale. If I'm not mistaken Demolition AX was one of the early bookers for GWF.
  21. Lady Frost is awesome! When Sam Adonis was booking his lucha show in Beechview he asked me to pick 2 ladies for the ladies match. I went with Lady Frost Vs Raylynn. The girls brought the fight into the bounce house. Was a really fun match. Watching LF grow as a performer has been great.
  22. I would love to see The Mane Event signed. Now before I go into this I will say for those unaware, there are 2 Indy teams with that name. I am referring to Duke Davis and Ganon Jones. These guys are insanely good and are over huge wherever they wrestle. You can see them in IWC or AIW currently. Oddly enough they are working the other TME team this Saturday in Pittsburgh. If you haven't heard of or seen them wrestle I beg of you to check them out. They are a black tag team and should be on the For the Culture shows. Actually they should be in AEW or WWE every week.
