  1. Gunn Club is clearly one of those short feuds like MJF/Pillman recently. I don’t mind them because it gives the big star a little reset in between bigger feuds and gives the younger guys a chance to get a taste of the big show so to speak. Colten and Austin can put young Darby in the spotlight for this one. What’s with their 1992-1993 Shawn Michaels tights anyway?
  2. Awesome hour of wrestling. Opener was fun and that top rope falcon arrow looked like a fucking explosion, nobody kicks out of the Falcon Arrow. Riho-Baker was great and one of my favourite Riho matches because her move set seems more varied (I can’t get too much into wrestlers that relies on Double Foot Stomps as their main offence). Surprising finish and commentary helped to hammer the point that Riho seems to be the one person that Brit can’t beat. It’s such a joy to watch Garcia and Eddie anytime they’re out there. Loved this one top to bottom. Garcia is low key one of the underrated in ring MVPs this year.
  3. Nice chemistry between Punk and MJF, that felt like one of the longest in ring talking segments AEW has ever done but I was very sport entertained the whole way through. Ditto for Bryan and Page, never expected them to be so fun together. I love the dynamic of the face champion almost begging to fight the challenger every show. Can’t wait for these two to face off, asshole Bryan is so so good. Lmao at Alistair’s music instantly changing into FTR’s theme.
  4. To give credit to Tony, he seems to pick up MOVEZ knowledge from Excalibur pretty well. If you watch any of the shows where it’s him and Big Show commentating he’s out there calling out moves with Japanese names he would have never known before and even thanks Excalibur from time to time on air. It’s pretty cute.
  5. Shida hast submitted twice recently so making Deeb say I Quit sounds like a satisfying conclusion.
  6. I don't think Excalibur gets confused, but I feel he sometimes doesn't know how much he can get away with banter wise with JR specially. Like he's worried how JR would react or even offend him if he goes a bit far with the banter. Because he clearly is quick witted and doesn't mind shooting the shit with Taz/Jericho/Etc.
  7. Excalibur and Taz should definitely be the main team on Dynamite. Tony is a likeable guy but I think his best role is interviewing the talent in-ring/backstage. On commentary he usually relies too much on agreeing with whatever Excalibur or JR say instead of having his own voice or making the subject more interesting. He does have some pretty good nights calling matches and little details but maybe the 3-Man booth limits that for him too.
  8. BR sounds like a nightmare over there, the Fite TV experience couldn’t be smoother here, never had any issues.
  9. Best JR-ism of the night was when Butcher and Ishii faced off and he said: ”Here we go folks, big vs. big… good vs. good”
  10. I think our brain is accustomed to the WWE style of feud which usually means 2 guys wrestling each other for 3+ months in rematch purgatory. AEW has shown they go more for the NJPW style where rematches (At least on big single's feuds) are rare or happen with very longs breaks in between. Darby and Omega clearly said they're not done with MJF/Page but we'll revisit down the line. Same when Bryan said he and Omega will meet again at some point. I much prefer this way of doing things.
  11. I was impressed with the guy in the crowd wearing an Excalibur mask for most of the show but swapping it for an Evil Uno one during his match and surprisingly for a SES CM Punk one when he came out.
  12. Yep, I thought Rush was gonna be another Matt Hardy like character where it was going to be obviou he was "exploiting his talent" but he shows signs of honesty and happiness for Dante from time to time so it's an interesting dynamic.
  13. That opening segment and first match hit ALL the right notes for me. Great little wholesome moment with Hangman and the crowd, then Bryan comes out and boom just like that he's a massive dickhead, can't wait for this match and love how the tension slowly raised throughout the segment. Even the little Elite promo gave some temporary closure to their relationship, Kenny's immediate future and the inevitable Kenny/Cole implosion. Ultimate dickhead Bryan Danielson has always been the best Bryan Danielson. Holy shit, that match with Uno was low key pretty brutal from both guys, awesome stiff fest. Perfect match to showcase asshole American Dragon coming back. Holding onto submissions longer than necessary, "I've got till five", slapping the shit out of Uno, so so good. I was laughing my ass off at the unnecessary double bicep pose at the end. Bryan and Punk getting booed against "homegrown" talents like Page and Eddie has to be seen as a triumph for the company, not something easy to achieve.
  14. I hate that right before getting fucked over he was helping Shawn to apply the Sharpshooter correctly (he had crossed the legs the wrong way at first).
