  1. Tony Khan should consider trying to sign him away. I think they could potentially make a legitimate star out of him.
  2. It’s been pretty underwhelming and he’s often not felt like the most important part of the show despite being the champion.
  3. I voted for Deonna but I don’t believe there can ever be enough big men in wrestling, they are a big part of the novelty of pro wrestling, imo.
  4. My guys: Danielson, FTR, MJF, The Acclaimed, Wardlow, Thunder Rosa, TayJay, Team Taz, The Butcher, The Blade, and the Bunny Not my guys: Young Bucks, Adam Cole, everyone in the dark order (except Anna Jay), the Best Friends
  5. This was perfectly said, thank you! Based on BTE, I guess he got internet famous for falling off a building into a dump truck or something and amused the Young Bucks with his goofy promos but I was baffled by the signing. His physique was embarrassingly bad for a wrestler presented on tv and he literally looked like a child next to Moxley. And he was awful at wrestling. The last time I saw him wrestle he busted open Hangman and nearly dropped him on his head trying to a suplex he clearly didn’t have the strength to do. If AEW did cut people he 100% should have been cut after that match. Anyway, it’s good that he has a following on the indies hopefully he doesn’t hurt anyone and hopefully I never have to see him on tv again.
  6. They killed the Pinnacle when the Inner Circle got all of their heat back immediately when they returned after the beat down, and Jericho put MJF’s head in a toilet.
  7. It was the AJ and Jericho team. And according to Jericho he had them printed just to swerve everyone about when the heel turn was happening (they’re obviously not going to do the turn tonight if they printed t-shirts). Anyway, Jericho is much better as a heel and I think him having lackeys like 2.0 should hopefully make his segments more entertaining. The face stuff with him was honestly getting a little rough for me.
  8. I’m pretty sure it was his first promo in front of a live tv crowd, and he kind of sounded like a guy imitating other people he’d heard cutting promos. But I think he’ll get better and “find his voice” with more experience.
  9. Yeah, Cody was still drawing numbers, I’m pretty sure his ladder match with Sammy drew better ratings than Sammy and Darby. If the EVP title had become largely superfluous as Tony Khan took more control, I could see how money could become an issue. Cody was the top baby face in the beginning, his open challenge was one of the best parts of the pandemic era, and that got a lot of popular guys hired, and just a few months ago he literally set up himself on fire. If the reports of him wanting Jericho/Punk money were true, I could see how he could feel slighted for not getting it. Considering he was there in the beginning and a part of the reason guys like CM Punk (who Tony Khan approached in the beginning but who was unwilling to join a start up) were willing to sign, I could see how that could sting him and lead to this.
  10. I don’t think he’s big or athletic enough to fit in with their new post HHH direction.
  11. Is there actually a prototypical dad bod? I thought a dad bod just indicated you’d stopped caring about your physique, presumably because you’re tired from dealing with kids. A comparison photo going around comparing him to a Trenned up Enzo kind of makes it look he’s given up on the gym. I could see someone with that physique being a dad. Making a sign about it is pretty weird though.
  12. Wheeler Yuta was a disappointing replacement. He’s the Best Friends job guy that was just squashed by him a couple of months ago. I would have much preferred a fresher matchup. The Danielson promo was intriguing and an interesting approach. I liked the tag match. I don’t understand why Brandi Rhodes and Dan Lambert are having a contest to see who can be more detested. But I’ll be happy if Paige VanZant is going to do something significant in the ring. I’m not sure what we did to anger Tony Khan that he felt the need to put Nyla Rose vs Ruby Soho out there but that was not a good match and it went on way too long. The main event was really good but the referee restarting the match after he found evidence of cheating was a little weird and kind of stupid since AEW referees usually allow blatant cheating. And in fact did just that later in the match. But still overall really good match.
