  1. Ricochet is 35 but he's still healthy and in good shape. Could be wrong, but I don't recall him dealing with a ton of debilitating injuries the last six years working the WWE schedule either. Not sure if he sees AEW as his next destination. You could definitely do something fun with Ospreay if you want. Arguably both guys have stepped up their overall games since they last wrestled one-on-one. The problem is AEW still has a crowded roster and they could stand to lose a lot more people.
  2. The only person that reported the 122,000 fast national number for Collision was Alfred Konuwa. So make of that what you will.
  3. Hearing Bischoff explain Starrcade 1997 is still infuriating. Bischoff always has a dozen flimsy excuses for his dumbest ideas.
  4. A decent enough show. I guess the finish of Orton/Gunther was botched and they are simply acknowledging it and moving on, referees' decision is final blah blah blah. Orton vs. Gunther was match of the night though. IC title match was fine. I do think they need to pull the trigger on whatever they are doing with Gable/Otis and split Alpha Academy and give Gable his new stable. I really hope WWE knows what it's doing with this Uncle Howdy thing. The viral campaign is neat and all, but when it comes time to actually put whatever this is on TV, will they be able to follow through? And will it actually work? I still think these shows could use one or two more matches. I get that Triple H likes to have only about five matches for a PLE, but it still felt rather light. Just seems like they aren't economizing their ring time as well as they should. They don't need two hours for Countdown shows either. That said, they should have some sort of midcard match in the back half of every Countdown or Kickoff show, like the women's tag team titles I thought the finish to Nia Jax vs. Lyra Valkyria is neat. However, they've had Nia Jax playing this role for a while. If she doesn't win the title at some point, her winning this tournament will be a bit of a waste. Not saying she has to win at SummerSlam, but she should eventually beat Bayley.
  5. The Cody Rhodes vs. Dustin Rhodes match, seeing that live was pretty special. You can tell the match meant a lot to them and they were exorcising a lot of demons, plus the post-match promo. Also seeing Jon Moxley make his AEW debut was pretty cool. The first Double or Nothing was a fun show overall, and it did feel exciting. The MGM Grand Garden Arena was literally packed for an event that wasn't WWE. Even five years ago that felt unimaginable. It felt cool that something like this had emerged that wasn't WWE because it was unheard of at the time. Then you had things like the guy dressed as Jesus in the crowd, and the crowd popping for the Jesus cosplayer. One of those "you had to be there" moments.
  6. Based on what I read, private beaches and resorts allow women to wear swimsuits, and this wasn't the first time. Not defending Saudi Arabia and Mohammed bin Salman Al Saud. But the WWE deal with Saudi Arabia is long-term, and it's not going away anytime soon. Vince McMahon literally held a pissing contest with KSA over the safety of his roster. And when all that was blowing up, WWE said the deal was fine and they were expanding to three events a year which they were already doing.
  7. Brian Gewirtz blames Cody Rhodes' booboo face for screwing up The Rock vs. Roman Reigns at WrestleMania 40. It was supposed to be a kick-ass, inspiring promo about how The Rock was going to beat Roman Reigns for the title at WrestleMania 40. https://www.yahoo.com/entertainment/brian-gewirtz-says-cody-rhodes-220000817.html
  8. AEW literally advertised him for Wembley Stadium. So what is going on here?
  9. I conducted that interview with Ethan Page. Sad to see he's done with AEW and ROH. Hope he will land on his feet.
  10. I think the show ending angle tonight worked infinitely better than last week's. I also liked how the angle carried over into Rampage for about 15 minutes. Tony Schiavone had the line of the night, "We need to call the police, guys!"
  11. A relatively uneventful and pointless WWE Draft. I'm not sure they thought this through very well. Because the champions were protected this year, they had to preserve their feuds from Backlash as well. They should've waited and held the draft after Backlash.
  12. I never said it was and I was never talking about McMahon.
  13. No. And whataboutism is a poor defense of Tony Khan.
  14. Tony Khan has always wanted to be one of the boys. That’s why he can’t function as a leader.
