  1. I thought the Cody promo was pretty great. My instincts are telling me this IS going somewhere interesting. However, I’m willing to recant should it not. The rest of the show continued to reinforce my excitement for this promotion and the overall direction it is going in. I really don’t need WWE anymore. I love you, AEW.
  2. I guess I don’t have the same problem with Cody that so many of you do. But I do see that there are some problems. I just can’t place them specifically. Because if this really is a 4D chess thing and Cody is setting his character up for a big moment? A lot of these criticisms may end up pointless in hindsight. That being said. I enjoyed the shit out of this show as I often do. Bryan kicked some ass. Jungle Boy showed some big Dick energy. The Bucks and Cole showed lots of small Dick energy. Brandon Cutler is great in his role. I love you AEW. You’re my only hope.
  3. Today a customer asked me: “Are you human?” No idea why. I'll just state for the record. More fucked up shit happens to me when I'm sober as opposed to when I'm not. Just sayin.
  4. 1st title defense. I could see Bryan putting him over, perhaps in his first actual loss.
  5. Not much in AEW goes to waste. So you might be on to something. You would have thought Yuta had been booked in a Queens Crown match it was over so quick. Missed the Malakai match because I got home late. Bummed. Waltzed in during the Lambert/IC promo battle. Seemed good. Since I know almost nothing about current Lucha (and I’m trying out this new vape pen). I almost bought FTRs Conquistadors gimmick as legit. Smooth move unmasking them right away as historically this shit gets dragged out for at least a few weeks. Punk gets the “Saba Simba Award” for making the call before they did. Si! Got the sense that Bryan was looking to add an additional finisher to his move set using the ultra torque heel hook. Might as well. He even got a decent pop for it when he used it against Jericho in that NXT match a bazillion years ago.
  6. I saw Tay/Santana and thought it was terrible. Garrett did not perform well here at all. Damn, she was slow and looked like she got lost a time or two. Matt/Punk was a lot of fun where both guys looked really good. I can see MS being somewhat elevated here even with the loss. By now clout and winning streak should get Punk a next level opponent. Maybe Cody, soon? I’m lukewarm on Bobby Fish. Moriarty looked great. Match was fine. I’ll watch the rest later when the family isn’t nagging me to go on a goddamn hay ride. I love you AEW.
  7. I went to bed after AmDrag/Suzuki. That’s really all I needed so anything afterwards could wait. Great match, of course. They didn’t go outside the ring. There were no 2 counts that I recall. There was no finisher spamming at all. While I’m not exactly putting my flag in the hill saying I’m against those things. The absence made this match really stand out. Now I gotta look up the rest of the show.
  8. Saw Mox/Gage on YouTube and after reading the results of the rest of the show. Sounds like GCW really might have some legs to it. They keep catching my attention without my really trying.
  9. “What are you going to do? Shoot me?” Legit had me laughing for the next 20 minutes. Reminds me of that meme a few years ago. Stabbing Victim: “”What are you going to do? Stab me?” Its something of a Rorschach test. But yeah… “Hos”. Great 8 man tag. A crazy ladder match. A very surprising upset for Deeb. Fuck your trophy. Was Proud and Powerful taking a shit during the ATT brawl? I love you AEW.
  10. I suddenly want to use the phrase “wack a bigot” more in my daily life.
  11. This gist on Conrad I think stems from when I heard him in an interview basically saying that this podcast trend “isn’t going to last”. So I’m assuming he is taking that scorched earth approach when it comes to ad spamming his shows. But yeah. Between him spreading himself too thin. Plus the novelty of getting big names attached to these shows is getting old. Yet still I’m grateful, because absent the success of the Prichard show, MLW wouldn’t exist.
  12. Make him ask another question! Something about composting!
  13. So Europe had a price too high for Tony Khan. But they are taking gigs in the break room? I think things have worked themselves out nicely.
  14. I totally get the awkwardness of stuffing another hour onto a Wednesday night tv taping. It just sounds exhausting. The solution to that is of course just buckling down and doing a second live show on Friday nights. Ok, more full on production costs for a single hour of tv time. A single hour preceded by 8pm to 10pm of what? YouTube content? I can see TNT noping out on that one. And you KNOW what that means! The Greatest night in the history of our sport Presents: A second hour of RAMPAGE!!! Cuz at that point why the fuck not? Isn’t that what wrestling companies do? But doesn’t that also make this marathon viewing now? Do you sacrifice the live crowd for the television audience? Strike while the iron is hot, yes. But they haven’t beaten RAW or SD in weeks ratings totals. (Yet?). Great strides obviously have been made. NXT was slain like Nirvana slayed the hair bands. But do you flood the market to pad your capital only to throw money at any side effects? The show quality has certainly benefited from a steady rotation of the roster. That’ll get thinned out, not immediately, but eventually as more activity and increases in potential injuries. As potheads often say: “Don’t fuck up the rotation.” Hey… that reminds me…
  15. They haven’t given a reason that I can recall. But personally, I’m fine with him remaining somewhat enigmatic. Though I’d imagine eventually it might be requisite to get a bit deeper with the character. A very good match with Nick/Bryan. The three way was decent with Nyla and Rosa carrying Jade through it. It’s looking like Cargill has the tools but really needs some quality time in the ring. OC made me laugh out loud during the split screen. “Wait? What am I doing?” All the lols. I love you AEW.
  16. Brian Pillman must be looking up from hell and loving this Armed/Glock Anderson stuff.
  17. True. When I saw him at Chaotic Wrestling’s Cold Fury show a couple years ago. He had a pair of ladies with him as a part of the package. Later, when he appeared of that one Evolve show on the network. It seemed like there wasn’t much wind in sails in his act because the ladies were not there. Still seemed like the case last night. But who could blame him if he didn’t become a star over last night? He was placed on a show as a placeholder without an act.
  18. I’m exhausted from a long day. But I did not yawn or doze off during this show. On MJF: I think he is trying to put the horror in horrible. But I’m not sure his age lends him the gravity to land his his one liners. He cut the promo off at the right time to at least leave some plot hanging in the air. I’m good with this. Was Darby hitting character correct awkward teenager notes? Or was he not that great on the mic? When -1 tossed the fucking PAPERS!!! I lost my shit brother brother brother. Highlight of the show for me. So a reunion here means Bray coming in would be to tear them apart again? Things sure got kinda quiet when Colt hit that moonsault. *whistles Like… tossed out lawsuits awkward. Well AEW continues to be my happy place. Cody gets all the lols. Nick Jackson vs. Bryan Danielson is going to be good for all of gods creatures except one… Fenix.
  19. Well this episode of AEW has the handicap of following the show where I got everything I’ve ever wanted in a wrestling match. After a childhood full of syndicated squash show matches. Having a match on regular tv that (for me) is the apex pairing. It doesn’t get any better than that. This episode of Rampage didn’t have a chance to follow that. Yet still, it was a great episode. I’m going to shout whomever pointed out the plot hole of nobody coming out to save Jericho and Jake. Exasperated by the fact they’re all wearing support vests AND there are two segments after the beat down of other Inner Circle members coming out all happy and jovial. Like nothing even happened to their crew. Sammi and Santana and Ortiz come out later and I’m like: “Where the fuck were these dickheads?” Really? Don’t get me wrong. The Sammi segment got more focus on next weeks match. The 8 man tag quietly planted the seed for a P&P vs Lucha Bros tag title match. It got its work done. It’s just a block that doesn’t fit with the other LEGOs. Maybe re-edit the show and put the Jericho match later in the show? Had an eye opening moment seeing Hager do the job. That doesn’t happen every day. TK has a lot of credit to spend when choosing someone to lay down. Punk vs Hobbs and HOOK was all the good. The 6 Man tag revealed that maybe it’s understood. Luchasaurus isn’t going to be protected as much as your typical “big guy/giant” on a typical team or faction. Being that he does the job again here. The double goozle choke slam was fire. I like the idea of the Mark Henry pre-Main Event dual interview. But they aren’t getting any better. Maybe they’ll get it there. I love you AEW.
