  1. Looking at my DVR, his shoulder was up before the three count. Also it took Punk a minute to go into "celebrating a win" mode, which made me think it was supposed to be a 2.9 kickout and the ref fucked up. Also I hate to be that guy since I've been loving so much of what AEW's been doing lately but this show was kind of a bummer all around for me. Call me grampa if you want, I'm old enough to not care, but I loathed the main event. JR was openly shitting on it for fuck's sake. I'm supposed to buy Hangman as being seriously pissed off after taking the marshmallow head off? (and even on the level of "just enjoy the silly", how do you have four guys in ghostbuster costumes w/proton packs and NOBODY makes a joke about "crossing the streams?" Deeb's legwork was good (albeit she switched which leg she was targeting midway through) but Shida wasn't selling any of it, running around and jumping off shit from start to finish. Bryan ought to know (and probably does know) that depression hits different people differently. So we're left with him manipulating Eddie just to piss him off. Too real tbh. Speaking of, at this point I don't care if Cody turns or not, he should never cut a promo on HHH again unless he's gonna come out and have a match with him on AEW TV or PPV. Both alliances in the Pac/Cody Black/Andrade feud seem thrown together and weird. On the plus side, I thought the MJF/Darby segment was good, the Sammy/Page match was solid, Mox as angry wrecking ball works, especially since it's likely to conclude with a final against Bryan who he can't quite do that to, and the Punk/Fish match was very good until the possibly botched ending.
  2. Feel like not including some top stars in the tournament is less about them taking losses (if Punk lost to Mox or Danielson, would that really diminish him that much?) and more about not burning money-drawing PPV matches in the build-up to a match where only the final will be on PPV.
  3. Jericho, to PVZ: "I wouldn't touch you with your husband's genitalia." CM Punk: "I don't think that's true." Thought Punk was the best he'd been on commentary tonight. Also loved how after the "Daniel Bryan" slip he defended JR, saying "so they see it's not just you"
  4. Couple bits from that we didn't see was Punk going and giving Mark Henry a big hug and then shaking Taz's hand and then having a bit of trouble finding his way offstage cuz AEW's dual-entranceway gimmick is difference than WWE's side-of-the-screen thing.
  5. I hate to be even a little bit negative about what was such an awesome return, (I absolutely cried and do not care who knows,) but Punk saying that he expects getting back to wrestling to be like riding a bike makes me worry he might be underestimating the difficulty of getting back into in-ring shape. I know he had stints pf time away from the ring due to injury, but he's never really done the Jericho thing of needing to come back after years away, and he's wrestling one of the fastest dudes in the business. I'm sure he's capable of getting back there, mentally and physically, (albeit he may need to adjust for the fact that he's in his 40s now,) and really the All Out crowd is gonna eat it all up regardless, but I do still wonder if there might be a ramp-up time before we can expect Punk to deliver in-ring.
  6. The rest of the show ranged from ok-but-inconsequential to...whatever in fuck that Orton/Bliss/Fiend bullshit was, but that Reigns-Bryan match was amazing.
  7. Are we not gonna take note of the fact that Daniel Bryan headbutted a Samoan?
  8. I thought you meant Carlito for a moment and I was confused.
  9. It was six-five and pick 'em which foot he was closer to..
  10. ...ish I've seen Shane McMahon punches with less distance.
  11. Co-worker in a team chat: "Reminder everyone: It's Friday! :)" Me: "You know what that means." (Literally no one in that chat but me watches wrestling but I don't care)
  12. Anna Jay could be one of the pillars of the women's division. If Abadon or whoever serves as a transitional heel champ to take the title off Shida, her winning could be one of the things to cement face Dark Order alongside Hangman.
  13. We have built a better world for our children than we ever knew ourselves.
  14. Not too much to add. Was damn near a perfect show. I'm amused that Jericho said like 4 WWE trademarked names on the night (Harper, Rowan, Big Red, Bludgeon Brothers) cuz that's where he met Brodie and Rowan and you always remember the first name you meet a guy under even if that gimmick's gone later.
  15. Ok leaving aside that Callihan is still trying to suck cheap heat out of a botch from 33 months ago, are we gonna address him actually using "roll that beautiful bean footage" in 2020 on the company's biggest show in awhile?
  16. I was with you but Second City FC is pretty great
  17. I spent most of the last week of summer without air conditioning because running the ACs, even with new filters, and an air purifier running at maximum 24/7, was giving me headaches indoors, but it was almost bearable because the smoke has been so heavy that barely any sunlight was getting through so it was only mid-80s.
  18. I believe that the stupe du jour is that they aren't really wildfires, that they're all being set by "Antifa". Which you'd think would be progress from a couple years ago when the theory was "space lasers", except actual idiots on the ground have been stopping people trying to drive away from the fires, endangering everyone around them, looking for fictional antifa arsonists.
  19. There are decades where nothing happens and weeks where decades happen.
  20. That's more Adam Pearce than I've seen in almost 20 years.
  21. That was the most Oakland A's thing ever. Baseball: Extra innings will start with a runner on second. Baseball commentariat: This is gonna make smallball and the ability to execute it critical. Oakland A's: Fuck you *walks the bases loaded and hits a walkoff grand slam*
  22. I still play sometimes, and unlike Petrol I have the DVDR crew flag on, but I'm almost always just doing my own thing for a bit before I get bored.
