  1. It depends how much AEW is losing. If it's breaking even or only losing like 1 mil/year, that's pocket change to the Khans. AEW might do some cost-cutting, but it will stay around. I do think we're going to see a bunch of AEW talents not renewed in a year or two, which might help the bottom line some. (and some indie talents signed) I think Fight forever is going to matter a lot- if that game does well, AEW will continue as usual. If it doesn't (and my gut feeling is that it's not going to do that well) then AEW might have some issues.
  2. I don't see them going 60 with everything else going on the show. My prediction is someone screws FTR with Acclaimed not seeing it, or both teams get attacked.
  3. She's been taping that shoulder up every match since her last return. It's precautionary.
  4. They should make SIlver/Reynolds a tag team contender, perhaps heel turn of their own, or move them over to ROH to take tag belts off FTR. They are really the only two members of DO worth much on their own right now. Colt and Uno don't really provide much value above replacement at this point, despite being perfectly fine wrestlers I'd love to see at my local indy. I'd definitely offer Silver and Reynolds to NJPW for BOSJ next year too Uno will likely become just the video game guy/ JTTS.
  5. Yep, give me more WCW Saturday Night hijinks. Have Private Party find the WCW Cruiser Tag Champs in the trash and try to defend them.
  6. Well, he gave the belt to a wizard who used fireballs on people.
  7. The value is going to be the tape library long-term. Eventually, AEW needs streaming revenue in addition to the TV money if it wants to grow more. It's hurting bad in the short-term. I want that ROH announcement soon so we can get back to AEW being AEW. EIther that or just merge some belts. If I was TK, I'd have my belts tiered this way: Pretty Platinum as the 1A belt ROH belt as the secondary/1B belt, and treated like a big deal. All-Atlantic/Pure Rules/TV belts as specialty belts: All-Atlantic would be like Stardom's SWA belt Pure belt would be Pure Rules (perhaps tweaked a bit) TV belt would be 20 min , open challenge . The Tag and Trios belts would be merged. TBS and ROH Women's belt would also be merged.
  8. all I know is I'm getting a few really good matches each week, some stars that really interest me, some representation I wouldn't have seen before. I'm happy AEW exists, and without it, I probably would only be watching NJPW and whatever happened to the ROH talent in an AEW-less world (my guess is ROH survives)
  9. I think you should have Acclaimed go over FTR in a classic to cement them as top guys at a major Dynamite. Give them a 20-30 min main event and have handshakes at the end. I don't think the Acclaimed are made yet- super hot at the moment, but not made yet.
  10. This is my spicy take, I enjoyed WCW Jarrett, as a worker, he was perfectly good, occasionally great in his prime, and given his style I suspect he can still go enough. As long as he isn't booking himself I'm fine with him being on the show. As for Colt, I've seen him a couple times live. Definitely a guy who I think translates better to indie crowds, but usually a good worker and seems like a good guy. I liked his clueless schmuck in Brodie's Dark Order gimmick.
  11. I'd be fine with Cole/Bennett/Taven as a group until KOR gets back.
  12. I do think Kenny's legit about revolution. IF he feels like he can't do that in AEW, I'd expect him to freelance or go start something new. I don't really see him going to WWE ever. He wouldn't be able to do CEO x NJPW type events.
  13. Sign Bandit and make it a Nyla and Bandit mother's advice to their kid type show.
  14. I was thinking more new La Park being his likely arc.
  15. I could see a scenario where BCC breaks up with Mox/Yuta on one side, Danielson/Garcia on the other, perhaps Claudio joins Danielson/Garcia so Eddie joins Mox/Yuta because he hates all of Danielson's BCC and likes Mox?
  16. Bandido looked absolutely awesome there, and while AEW doesn't need a larger roster, Bandido's the type of guy who adds something special that he's worth adding. I'd rate him over Fenix. Felt like too much talking for me tonight personally.
  17. I think the endgame is Garcia taking the belt. Jericho gets goaded into a pure rules match to unify the titles , and loses to Garcia in his environment.
  18. As someone who has been a very good competitive Soul Calibur player, I am a bit offended here. Calibur has more combo variety than most fighters due to walls, edges, and air control. hangman is around 1.05 Talims of likability for me. You can see HAngman's been under the learning tree of Kenny with how he structures his side of matches. It's great for epics, not as great for weekly TV. I'd argue that Kenny's stylings were much better in a leaner AEW pre-pandemic than in the current fat AEW we have now.
  19. Dario's crooked but bloodthristy also worked well as a GM.
  20. I once had a match idea that was like chess-boxing but with fighting games instead of chess. Wrestlers would do 5 minute rounds, then play a fighting game buring the break. Fights could be won by 2 pinfalls, 2 submissions, 1 knockout, 2 fighting game wins, or 1 fighting game perfect. You could even do things like joint manipulation/armwork to make your opponent drop combos.
  21. My top 10 1 Mox 2 Bryan Danielson 3 Kenny Omega 4 Claudio 5 Hikaru Shida 6 Daniel Garcia 7 PAC 8 Ricky Starks 9 Dax Harwood 10 Hangman Page It sucks not to be able to put Eddie or Trent here, they're awesome and 11 and 12.
  22. THe Casino chip hasn't been used as a MITB. Would be fun to see MJF try but told it's a sanctioned match at next opportunity.
  23. Punk's injured right? Say due to his injury occuring outside of wrestling or training in an unprofessional manner, MJF gets his title shot in 2 weeks at Grand Slam, and will win by forfeit if Punk isn't cleared to compete. Open the show with Punk being counted out and MJF winning by forfeit. If he isn't cleared, MJF faces the winner of a battle royal (have Stokely's crew try to rig it so like Serpentico wins the battle royal or something, but backfires and it's say, Max Caster or even Colt, who then has a great 20-min classic with MJF) Don't burn Eddie or Wardlow/MJF for this. The Elite aren't stripped of the Trios belts yet due to investigating and preliminary suspension, if they don't defend within 45 days of All Out, then they are stripped. Gives you flexibility, makes logical sense. The belt will have to be hot potatoed anyways. With Punk, I'd eat your losses, and tell him, hey, we'll give you your contract as long as NDA about this for a few years, and you don't have to show up again. By the way, NJPW wants to do a match vs KENTA, you have permission to go over there or do any other promotion you want that isn't WWE. If the locker room wants to give Punk a second chance he can come back, but unless the locker room is ok with it, he shouldn't be back. Guaranteed there will be folks who will go into business for themselves if Punk stays. Handle the Elite based on what they did. if you have to get rid of them too, so be it, otherwise I'd let it mostly slide. I'd "suspend" them by talking to NJPW and saying we're giving you the Elite until WK, we'd like Naito/Hiromu/Sanada to take the trios belt off them, and you can job them out at WK to Ospreay and O'Khan/Cobb. Oh, also if you want a trio to come to the US for WK to have a match with LiJ, we'll bring someone in. (if Hiromu's unavaliable - say BUSHI or Shingo can do it. ) Bring LiJ to America to drop the belts to someone at Revolution.
  24. This sounds like a very special episode of IMPACT where Ace Austin does magic tricks for a half hour with Johnny Swinger as the dummy.
