  1. See, the "shorty" bullshit might have had a point in exactly one match. When he fought Baron after this shit all started, he did a quick promo where he said "Call me whatever you want, and at the end you will be calling me the winner of the match" Then he beats Corbin. Cole could throw out something like "King Corbin mocked Gable's height, but we have just seen he has giant sized ability in the ring" . We move on from there. Google says that Gable is 5'8" and Daniel Bryan is 5'10". Nobody points out Bryan's height. His ability? Determination? Skill? All the time. And if they do make reference to his size it's something like "Bryan is taking it to the much larger(insert name here)" WHY THE FUCK CAN'T YOU DO THAT WITH GABLE? The man is a god damn Olympic level wrestler. He's even got the goofy personality that can pull off the comedy shit Vince loves. He made Jason Jordan interesting in NXT, a mighty achievement. I'm not saying have him win the god damn WWE title, but if this is the best they can do for him then I don't even know what we are going anymore. Why stop at Shorty Gable? Why not call Otis Fatty Mcfatass? I don't get it.
  2. Holy shitballs Jim went off the rails this episode. The deeper we get into his podcast with Conrad, there is A LOT of repressed anger coming out. And like Mr Fowler brought up, this is a man who has been an on air talent for longer then some of the AEW guys have been alive. Some dude on twitter throws shade and you go off like that? Yikes
  3. it was silly as all hell, but I laughed my ass off at Ciampa beating up Garza's pants. As much of a shameless UE mark as I am(and assuming that injury report is exaggerated), it feels like they should run with Keith Lee as the North American champion next week. A dude that big and as talented as he is shouldn't be just....there for as long as he has been. Give the big bastard something to do. Rhea/Tegan/Dakota vs the Horsewomen? I'm down. I loved Pete Dunne snapping Killian's fingers and then just shrugging his shoulders. Once Dunne and Priest wrap up their issue, I could be all in on Dunne vs Killian. Speaking of Mr Priest, this was the best I've seen him look in NXT. Feels like he's slowly turning a corner, but the archer stuff really feels like a disconnect from the rest of the gimmick
  4. Can we get a revival of this since we are rebooting everything else these days? please?
  5. I....I would listen to the hell out of this
  6. So, the thing with Dream and Strong. This is the kind of thing we would see on RAW. If we have to have Dream taunting Strong and saying he's got a small dick, can we leave the stupid picture that would have come off of a 1999 episode of RAW out of it? Rock's charisma and sheer force of will could(almost)always make those kinds of segments tolerable. I love Roddy and Dream, but they ain't there yet. And Ciampa punching Garza and not knowing what he said is another page from the RAW playbook. I accept we are going to be going through some changes with the Wednesday Night Wars. But can we please leave this kind of stuff off the show that literally advertises itself as "NO B.S"
  7. I mean, shit. I'm not asking for a big elaborate monologue about his feelings. But for him to not have some kind of venting about last week? No "he got me, but I'll be back?" The man just lost the biggest title in the god damn company and we are back to pancakes? Xavier Woods said it was his professional goal to make Kofi the world champion. Is HE upset about this? It's this kind of stuff that just makes me feel like an idiot for getting emotionally invested in anything this company puts out. "Hey, remember how much you all got behind this guy and there was that amazing feel good moment at WrestleMania? FUCK YOU, YOU STUPID MARK. Now go buy Crown Jewel while we send this pancake tossing geek back to the midcard where he belongs." God damn this show. Except heel Bayley. More of this please
  8. This is a point that can’t be overlooked. Alvarez made the point about Riho vs Rose that the crowds willed this into being a great match with their reaction. AEW at this point has a huge level of goodwill that is well earned and the crowds are responding in kind by going batshit nuts with their reactions. AEW doesn’t make you feel stupid or like they hate you for watching their product and the crowds are responding in kind
  9. Jericho scorched the earth and brought the fire with that promo and it was AWESOME. Say what you will about him being older and out of shape, but this mother fucker carries himself like a gigantic star and how anyone could say he’s the wrong dude to be the first world champion is insane. The average size of the wrestlers being smaller benefits Hagar since that dude looks like a beast standing next to the rest. But, and I’m sorry for not remembering who said it so I can credit you, he looks like the dude who is stoned out of his gord and desperately trying not to look so.
  10. I can see this but I think the comparision made a few pages back about this being Falling Down with clowns(great band name) is more spot on
  11. So, listening to John Pollock and Wai Ting reviewing this episode and when they get to the Rose/Rio match and reference Omega's involvement, they say something along the lines of Kenny "possibly setting up something down the line with Rose." Mr Omega, I beg you. And this is coming from a guy who likes Jim Cornette, do not wrestle Nyla Rose. The interwebs are not prepared to handle the fall out and all the bullshit that would come with Jim Cornette's hot take on "Kenny Olivier" wrestling Nyla. Please do not do this. You may kill us all.
  12. What’s really dumb is that the nonstop trying to kill each other would be an ideal setup for a hell in a cell match. But maybe I’m thinking too much. Hats off to Sean Waltman for pointing out how stupid this all is on an official program. in other news, if that was supposed to turn the kabuki warriors then they shit the bed there too. I’m not against evil Asuka and Kairi but they failed miserably if I’m supposed to hate them. I did crack up at the ref apparently not noticing or caring that Nikki’s face is green and that Asuka has green down the front of her. It’s cool. putting aside my “netico” crush on Bayley, they have dropped the ball with a vengeance on her heel turn. Gets her ass kicked left and right and does nothing of note. I get the feeling the tantrum post match is supposed to go somewhere but I ain’t holding my breath
  13. I mean, my god. Who in the hell thought this was a good idea? The stupid thing is that you might be able to pull that ending off in a regular match setting up the blow off in the cell, but how do you expect people not to shit all over this? People were SCREAMING for Seth to lose and wwe said “fuck you”. This is one of the dumbest things I have seen any company do.
  14. See, this is the problem with Brock. Everything you said is true. But in all the time since he has become The Beast Incarnate after breaking The Streak, the only stories we have seen from him are (1)Brock fights a smaller, quicker opponent who takes him to the limit before Brock finally catches him and beats him down(Bryan, Styles, etc), (2) Getting caught off guard by Goldberg but coming back to flatten him in the rematch. (3) the back and forth bullshit with Roman. The dude can add to the show. But MY FUCKING GOD I am so sick of him as the champion. I am so sick of Paul's interview about "this is a spoiler" and "THE REIGNING, DEFENDING..." bullshit. There's an interesting story to be told about Brock being terrified of the one dude who fucked him up in UFC. Why do they need the belt to do it? Why can't this just be a fight over pride? You have two legit badasses with a legitimate backstory that you can do something with. LET SOMEONE ELSE HAVE THE TITLE
