  1. Announcers should have their favorites. It adds something to the product. Announcers are part of the show too- as long as they're good characters it's fine.
  2. Impact was just banned from Twitch (most likely a temp ban) over the RVD stuff.
  3. Political gimmicks are around- there's the Progressive LIberal, and QT Marshall ripped off that gimmick at one point and was doing a Trumper version. Sunny got her start as a HIllary expy.
  4. I thought it was a Lodi tribute, and the idea was probably Jericho's.
  5. Heard he tore a bicep tonight, out 6 months. The lighter AEW schedule might be a good thing for Cage in the long term.
  6. I think that's a definite now. There's plenty of other talented women out there. Kris Statlander has just as much potential as Tessa as an example.
  7. I think the booking has been fine outside of the stuff around Brandi, and Britt not being good enough to get over, which they seem to have handled well.
  8. I think in NJPW he would have been slotted as Tana's little buddy- they were leaning that way. Also Page is what 23 now, still plenty of time.
  9. I think the Durham Armory only seats 900 so not going to be big sales there.
  10. New Beginning USA cards out. Looks like mostly Chaos/Main Unit/BC mid-carders. Tana and Ibushi are the headliners. They're adding Colt, Rock N Roll, Mysterioso to the usual suspects as well.
  11. You just gave me the image of EVIL Von Erich.
  12. Jay was a pretty good babyface in ROH on his excursion. I think he could pull it off. The man's smart enough I think he could do anything. That said, I want a slow slow burn on this. Or Jay just realizing KENTA isn't good enough, so he bides his time, leading to Jay kicking KENTA out.
  13. Wouldn't they be juniors in NJPW feuding with R3K? I know i hurt a guy as a kid with a Texas Cloverleaf. I thought it was the Scorpion but realized I did it wrong and was doing a Cloverleaf instead.
  14. Who was the last guy to get that level of heel heat in NJPW?
  15. I'm not going to fault a guy for doing the whole working on the neck while protecting it imperfectly, given Hiromu's broken neck. There's a certain amount of leniency I give in the name of protecting folks. Ospreay should be working Hiromu's neck, even if it's not his normal style. As for KENTA/White, I can't see KENTA leading BC, or a White face turn until Shota returns from excursion and/or Okada/Ibushi pull a Nakamura and leave before being pushed down the card (I do see Okada/Ibushi both eventually doing an AEW retirement tour) most likely we might get a seed, with no real BC help for KENTA except maybe Yujiro.
  16. Jericho did say in post match he wants someone to open the forbidden portal. NJPW/AEW rivalry would be money. Obviously, it would be a partnership, but the two companies should have storyline bad blood. AEW folks coming into NJPW should be invaders mostly, and NJPW should primarily send their heels into AEW. If Tana did enter AEW, I'd want him to go after Omega and the Elite , and "heal" Page. I suspect AEW fans might end up cheering Tana and booing Omega if that happens though.
  17. Tana/Jericho was MOTN for me for Night 2. I wasn't super impressed with Night 2 like I was Night 1.
  18. Just realized if Naito wins, we prob get Naito vs Hiromu at anniversary show. Given how much each of them wishes to be the other, wonder how it will go.
  19. It's something that kinda started after his loss to Tana and picked up a bit more after Kenny left. Sometimes he just snaps and turns into what you just saw.
  20. Am I the only one who had White/Naito as MOTN? That is probably now in my top 5 favorite matches of all-time, just insane how good those two were together. Okada/Ibushi was only 3rd best match of the night, and that was on par with Tana/Omega from last year. Just insane.
  21. only problem is it's starting too early. If it was 4 or 5 no problem, but gonna miss some of it at 2am.
  22. That's exactly the type of matches DBS Jr wants. Why he hated being stuck with Yano so much in NJPW.
  23. Millenials have largely given up on cable TV.
  24. New Japan just announced the stip as well. Would AEW give the belt to Tana if Tana agreed to show up in AEW and job it to someone (they'd almost certainly veto Omega). I can't see Tana screwing AEW by pulling a Lesnar. I won't be shocked if AEW mentions the dome match now, it's not going to hurt AEW's business if folks get NJPW World, and might help a bit. Hangman would be an interesting choice to get involved in this- given that Page was the one person in the Elite Tana respected and wanted to mentor.
