  1. What an excellent episode. After what has already been an exhausting week. I got promoted at work. Which means I’m daycaring a crew full of rookies save for two (that thankfully know more than me). A customer collapsed in the lobby on Day 2 of being in charge. I had to call 911 which apparently alerts management in the entire district. Had an exchange of words at work with a truck driver that thought it would be awesome to chant “Let’s Go Brandon” at me. I’m on fucking fire. So last night I also had zero interest in watching wrestling or getting any sleep (apparently). Then I saw what you all were saying about AEW this week. So after calling in to work (obviously). I sat down with my coffee and a joint and I watched the shit out of this show this morning. What timing. It really turned me around. I feel shitloads better. I estimate if I’m marking out over how effective the spilt screen was during the MJF/Wardlow angle. I’m on a good ride. The post match mega mixer of plot threads that ran after the JB/Starks match was just masterful. Jericho was The Oligarchs Yacht of douche canoes. Both in the voice over and promo. Chefs kiss to the AEW Galaxy. Whoever said Hager growth spurted but didn’t buy new clothes wins the day. But mostly because I read that post before I saw him. I actually pointed when I lol’d. “How much is he paying?” Classic Heenan. Darbys super sell of the loss was a blink and you’ll miss it moment. Uncle Dax and his rib was also top shelf. I’d like to reassure everyone concerned over Cole winning the tournament. It’s the OWEN HART tournament. A heel isn’t winning this one. I’d say a heel isn’t winning any of them. Assuming it’s an annual thing. Hayter/Storm was seemless with the rest of the show. I would like to see them do this again. Toni is a Titan. Barry Horowitz. It’s been too long. Thanks.
  2. Well… that wasn’t my favorite episode. But there was plenty of good stuff. A few hits and a few misses make for a lower overall score. But I can’t complain too hard. Fenix is so fucking good. Dante too. Jericho and Santana was decent. Wardlow is hitting. As is MJF continuing to surf the wave. The BCC are ruling wrestling these days. But the next match will need to be something of significance to avoid treading (awesome) water. Do I care if Hangman leans in on Punk? I’d say the Bret call out is more than justified. I’d also like to take the side of the crowd that chanted “No we don’t”! Love ya, AEW.
  3. Like something akin to Piper/Bret at WM8 maybe? Only he actually does the evil deed in a lapse of judgement. Punk kind of has the groundwork laid out already with his talk about him “still being able to do this”.
  4. Caught up last night. I even sprang for AMC+ to make it happen as I was on such a roll ride of momentum. Just fucking wow, dude. The slow burn and build of this show is allowing it to spend the currency of two really well crafted shows. Now they can just go wild. The cast certainly is. I know some peeps are talking about spending more time in Nebraska with Gene. But does anyone think it’s possible that we actually dive into some time parallel to early seasons of BB? If the show projects nothing else. It’s a clear desire to bridge the gap between the two shows. What better way than to insert Kim into the perimeter of storyline already established?
  5. I gotta be super careful coming in here. Since I’m way behind.
  6. Weeeeee! Fun show. Loved how Yuta outwrestled Camorato all the while suspended in the air. I knew people were going to get fussy about the Sammy barbed wire spot. But I think the earlier suggestion of tv time remaining is a reasonable explanation. I’m going to allow it. Dax and Cash delivered what I thought would be a good first match in a series. But is leaving me wanting more the desired effect if this is a one and done? **** Archer leading Wardlow through a big hoss fight was a job well done. The foundation is being laid for making this Wardog fellow a big BIG star. Don’t fuck it up. Missed the first part of Shida/Deeb. But it was a very good fight and finale to this feud. I’m with most of you in the belief that it’s time to push Deeb into the title scene and a main event. Thunder Bae was looking mighty fine. Brandonetico remains calm. AEW Galaxy? That’s got heat with me brother brother brother. Like a fireball in my face. I love you AEW.
  7. Post Clone Wars a few of them showed up in SW Rebels. Rex and a couple of others had aged quite a bit by then. So I’m guessing it suggests that the clones have a shorter life span maybe? It’s hard to say since it has apparently been retconned that Rex was the bearded rebel soldier outside the bunker on Endor during ROTJ. Additionally, The Bad Batch had the Empires transfer of clones to conscripts as a big chunk of the storyline.
  8. “Thank you for the information, friend.”
  9. Danielson did face SHINGO in DGUSA. IIRC is was a banger. Because of course it was!
  10. There is merit to editing your own WWE experience.
  11. When I saw the contrast between Gresham and and the big fella my jaw hit the ground. I’m pretty sure that’s what Vince wanted the stare down at WM3 to look like. It was like me vs. my action figures when I was 11. Oddly cathartic seeing two generations of ROH guys holding their belts. I really hope they figure something out with ROH that keeps it going and going well. I liked the heel turn for Sammy/Tay. The inverted version of his baby face championship victory promo was nice. Heel vs. Heel matches for me are a novelty I’d actually kinda like a bit more of. On the rare occasion one where one actually happens. It plays as so far off any typical match formula. No need for a heat segment here. It’s a game of one upmanship over who be the shitbaggiest. Managers getting way out of line and causing chaos. Boatloads of cheatings greatest hits. Thunder Bae and Nyla was struggling it seemed until the Code Red blew up the crowd. Then they had them. Nyla really has ironed out the wrinkles in her big person=power moves game. Like it. I like a good bonus episode now and then that doesn’t overstay it’s welcome. 3 nights of shows this week that never felt the last mile of a marathon *cough* RAW.
  12. Doing the “math” in my head. I’d say that the threat assessment to AEW in a corporate transfer should be minimal. The loyal audience, some decent revenue streams and a (nationally) narrow market should be convincing the execs to keep AEW on television and invest even further. This has been Brandon Bones with Business Chat.
  13. You know what? I get it. I was thinking about this whole clusterfuck at the end of the show. I was thinking about how much of a bad reaction it got and where I was in contrast to that. But really don’t think I’m that far apart. Yeah I’ve been dodging negativity to AEW. But this not being great for the particular category of reasons it wasn’t great, are what is alarming. WWE would totally take a shit in the ring just like this. They would totally bet big on another “lumbering Warlord” that physically has no potential in the ring other than looking enormous. Yet it happened on Dynamite instead. Khan’s booking is overall fantastic and has also managed to improved as far as how it translates to producing a television show. Pulling inspiration from the territories and Japan and ECW or maybe FMW. It shouldn’t be any surprise that AEW might pull some inspiration from wwF. But if you do that. It absolutely has to be “you got your chocolate in my peanut butter” in its execution. Remind those corporate dopes in Stamford how they used know how to do this shit. Instead, for a lot of people from what was an otherwise fucking awesome show it damn near got swallowed whole by an angle that just wasn’t for me either. I’m reading that this Discovery Channel take over has the potential to be threatening to AEW and that it would be prudent to make some moves to increase its face value. Laying foundation in India, announcing a streaming service, maybe a video game this year would certainly project value. Still stinks like corporate dogshit having to do it though. Just like this angle.
  14. Lights out! Lights on! Who? Great show. Another. Great. Show. Another. Great. Crowd. Punk/Penta delivered. Even if the top rope rana was a botch. It was beautifully covered by a total pro who covered it with some great selling. Rookies take note. Tag Title match exceeded my expectations as I’m kind of cold on both teams. But hey! Here comes my favorite team in FTR to stir the pot and build of the hard work of an excellent match. Speaking of exceeding expectations. Wardlow is blowing my mind with how over he is. I was laughing with joy at the whole segment. Everyone gets a cookie. My highlight of the show was Lee/Swerve vs. Starks/Hobbs. Stole the fucking show for me. Lee seems a tad slower than I’ve seen him in the past but his hard work pushed it through. Starks was great. Hobbs I think really had a moment last night and I’m here for it. Ortiz still had the shoes come match time. Loved it. 6 man was decent. I love me some chop battles. So tonight was my night. The novelty of Suzuki being on North American television won’t last forever if he keeps losing. But yeah vs. Joe ruled all the ass. I love you AEW.
  15. Hobbiton. I’d roll me a fat blunt of The Old Toby and eat until I passed out in Brie (with no idea how I got there).
  16. As someone who unfortunately bought a ticket and actually WENT to Survivor Series 93. I can say from personal experience the worst Hart brother is indeed Keith. Bruce at least THOUGHT he was something. Keith Hart couldn’t sell refreshments in a heatwave. Did no one coach him up on being a Hart? Do some Bret stuff as a set up for a quadruple sharpshooter spot and go home. That show overall was basically snakebit for a menu of other reasons. But Keith Hart was complete unremarkable shite.
  17. I just realized. I can’t have this now. I’d guess taking a “whipped off the ropes Steinerline” Cash would sell it as great as Brian Knobbs did.
  18. Really great episode. Yuta is a man now. I’m thinking of adding him to the “My Guys” list.
  19. This is where I strive to be. I’m in pure escapist mode. I just can’t be bothered over who said what in some interview or social media post. That would be a distraction from my distraction. Later I’ll get a kick out of how much you all seem to be enjoying the show when reading your posts.
