  1. I had it as they hated MJF so much that they wanted to incapacitate the other guys, just so they could punish MJF as much as possible, and that's what cost them. I mean really, FTR/Wardlow/Spears they have beef with primarily because they're with MJF.
  2. I'm wondering where does everyone go from here? I feel like it was too early for this, as these guys kinda have to feud with each other for a few more months. Hopefully it leads to Sammy being pushed to eventually take the TNT off of Miro in about six months after making MJF pay. MJF kinda needs to go for gold against, but heel vs heel?
  3. I think El Phantasmo has done one of those. As for the WWE stuff, I think many of us have been so disappointed for so long we can't even bring ourselves to hate WWE anymore- we've just grown completely indifferent to it- and that is worse for WWE.
  4. AEW isn't lacking in good babyface women- Tay, Anna when she comes back could be a face easily, Riho, Shida's a good face, Ryo, and Rosa.
  5. They don't need her, they have enough great talent. Daga isn't really needed either- nothing against him, but he wouldn't add much to AEW.
  6. I mean if they needed a lawyer, the Texas Law Hawk is closer and would have a more entertaining gimmick.
  7. They should be able to get crowds after June 15th due to loosening of restrictions then.
  8. That Darby match made me hope AEW sends him over to BOSJ this year. Would be a great way to make NJPW like AEW. He'd be so great in that environment.
  9. I'd love for Nagata to win the US belt in AEW even if it was done via Elite shenanigans. Hopefully Nagata can get vaccinated while he's here in the US as well.
  10. It's also possible that they couldn't get title shot just by coercion. Eddie isn't ranked. Beat Omega in a match, even a tag match, you get ranked fast, especially with the decent resume Kingston has.
  11. O-Kharn in NJPW is using the torture rack on occasion I think. I believe I saw an atomic drop in one of the AEW Dark matches last week.
  12. Hungee would benefit so much from a junior belt. Look at SHO in NJPW. He does a power gimmick in the junior division, one which Shingo did better, but it's hard to top Shingo. If NJPW was truly openweight, he'd look ridiculous trying that vs say, Goto or even Okada. I still think it's a mistake AEW didn't have a junior/middleweight belt.
  13. At this point Uno and Stu would really need a push for the Dark Order to be viewed as a threat (Silver/Reynolds won't be title material until they break out of the Dark Order) I think honestly it might be good for everyone involved if they lost a match that forced them all to break up at this point.
  14. Mox and Kingston have huge beef with Omega still. Omega hurt Kingston's foot, and stole Mox's belt. That's enough reason for a feud, though it should be Eddie and Christian who get the next two shots before Hangman steps up.
  15. They have Lance Archer for this. YOu don't need two Lance Archers. as for the Sunday PPVs they said they're only going to be Sundays on holiday weekends from now on I think.
  16. Well, that episode slapped. Tay vs Shida was great, Hangman vs Starks was as expected (and glad Ricky's ok), and Darby vs Jungle Boy was pretty good. When Christian vs Hobbs was the 4th best match of the night, you have something special, especially when Shida vs Tay was as good as Britt vs Rosa. Getting feelings we're seeing a NJPW in late 2010's-esque run out of AEW starting up.
  17. Lethal-Gresham is a must watch from this week's TV.
  18. Why would he- he has a spot on the card that's fine, he gets to do his own thing, and he's AEW's unofficial chief scout. He's not going to get more anywhere else.
  19. If he's healthy enough. Bille Kay should be considered for a job. Mickie will probably be avaliable to AEW through NWA anyways.
  20. Tyson's not going to be around that often- and Ogogo was a champ itself so it makes sense. However, a punch to the gut shouldn't be a fulltime finish, just a jobber killer. It makes no sense that he wouldn't just punch someone in the gut and win in a minute every time with that finish. Ogogo really looks like money though, easily a blue chip propsect if he can stay healthy.
  21. The Bucks should pay ELP royalties after tonight.
  22. Feel same way. Saw her kick ass vs Taya so I wanted her to turn it around, but she's the Austin Aries of women.
  23. AEW referenced him this week, mentioned Drake was trained by him.
  24. Rosa might be busy with NWA commitments- using part-timers can put things out of your control. Will Hobbs is mostly doing dark, he's rather do that than sit at home, and it's better to have a Will Hobbs in reserve than nothing. Also with COVID, you don't know if half your roster will test positive and you end up with Main Event of Fuego Del Sol vs Ten. During the early days of the pandemic, AEW deliberately had half their roster in reserve just in case the main roster had an outbreak so they'd be able to keep putting on a show, for AEW that TV money is what keeps them afloat, they don't have the network that allows WWE to do nothing and make money.
