  1. Never thought one of the headlines from this year would be Jim Cornette managing to kill the NWA.
  2. Cornette just has too much baggage to keep now. If he didn't have all the baggage, he would have kept his job, but he's just slung too much shit for too long, you know he's not going to change, and folks were not going to watch over him, so he had to go. The funny thing is Corny is getting support from Trumpies now, it's kinda hilarious. I kinda expect him to switch sides now and start being a Trump supporter to get on that grift.
  3. I wouldn't mind seeing AEW work with Wrestlecade for that. They'd have to move the date, but it's close to an oldschool hub and what would be a good AEW area, and they've already got something lined up.
  4. I got bored of it this year- the only thing that held me this year were the juniors and Taichi's move up the card. I'll be back for WK, but I unsubbed from NJPW after October- though much of that was AEW/NWA/MLW providing enough good wrestling show that NJPW was overkill.
  5. I don't think what you're getting paid is confidential information, even if employers really hate that. The fact employers really hate that is why it should never be confidential.
  6. We're going to get this next year from Joe Hendry and ROH. Even odds. I really hope John Woods ends up with Suzuki-Gun/Sabre-Gun next year- he's gonna be too good for ROH soon.
  7. I'll admit I was giving him a pass because of his anti-Trump stuff, and thinking he was old/was playing a character some/had bad influences like Bill Watts. That said, one can only take so much, and he used up all his goodwill with me. Reminds me of Brad Wardell (a game developer who kinda went the same way) There's a saying in the Air Force- you can give a person enough rope to hang themselves, and that's precisely what Cornette did. That said, if Cornette tried to pass a urine test, he'd probably try to take notes from Hammerstone. ^_^
  8. Cornette is now pretty much cancelled and has nothing left. As much as Corny meant to my fandom, he deserves what he's getting now.
  9. At this point Cornette has to go , and immediately. This was the last straw for a lot of folks, myself included. If the NWA doesn't do something immediately, they're sunk. This is going to scare off any potential TV deal as well.
  10. MJF needs a feud with someone who will beat the wrestling into him the way Bill Watts beat it into Sting.
  11. AEW really has some great well-defined jobbers in Nakazawa, Cutler, Avalon, Marshall and Havoc. Those guys being part of the office helps as well- they know they can job and get a nice paycheck doing what they love for a few minutes a week. Spears is well Spears, I don't think the experiment is working out, it's going to be interesting to see how much rope they give him.
  12. Sabian seems to be set up with the Hybrid 2, haven't they had a couple of 6-mans together? No idea how Spears and Sabian will link up, though I would like to see Sabian move up the depth chart a bit, he's impressed me so far.
  13. I agree on the schedule being good, the problem is the tag divisions really suck, which makes the tag leagues kinda meh as well. The issues isn't so much the leagues but how poor the tag division is treated. With how many guys are stuck on the ceiling in NJPW where they're really good but not good enough to be IC/IWGP-level, they could be doing great things with the tag division. EVIL/SANADA vs Tekkers should have been a lot bigger deal than it was.
  14. NJPW has felt pointless the last 2 years from the end of the G1 to WK. I unsubbed this year after October , not even Taichi-Naito could make me pay for November. I'll resub in January and go to at least BOSJ (I like BOSJ more than G1, BOSJ is more unpredictable)
  15. I thought Zack and Taichi would do better in the polls than Minoru and Archer, even if the Tekkers are the underlings.
  16. Who do you stick him with then? None of the other heels need him. If they bring more guys in later, Spears would slot in just fine as a lieutenant or gatekeeper to the real threat. The problem with Tully is kinda good one to have, and that is most of the heels in AEW are good talkers, or are in groups where someone can already talk for them. If Hager would split off from Inner Circle, Tully would be great for him, but Hager's the one guy I despise in AEW.
  17. To establish that there are rankings. I really would want to see an AEW version of the G1 at some point.
  18. Samael given his age, I'd love to see him transition to being the new Skandar Akbar, Contra Unit is kinda a reskinned Devastation Inc. anyways.
  19. Excalibur is an ex-wrestler so he'd probably be ok. You were allowed to lose fights to wrestlers. Watts would probably think Havoc was the ref anyways.
  20. I thought it was that + avoiding hurting himself. Sting relaxed the Scorpion when he was in TNA for that reasons.
  21. AEW might have a problem- people are getting mad at Jericho for embracing Trump Jr today on his podcast, which might also bring out some of the things Hager said recently that were rather bigoted (he went on a huge anti-LGBT spiel recently) Given the nature/age of AEW's fanbase, they might get a real backlash or some nasty chants tomorrow.
  22. They could always up the importance of the tag belts to main event a show, at least get them to the level of the NEVER belt. The IC belt could be retired, and probably should be.
  23. Could Kip Sabian wrestle that holds style, or at least hold his own in that style? That said, the Elite as a general rule is terrible at that style of wrestling, which might be why it isn't shown much in AEW.
