  1. Now that Orton has signed on for another five grueling years, he should pull a Jericho and re-invent himself into a 3-count cover band with two other guys
  2. I definitely thought this was the worst episode they've done so far, but I don't really think it was bad. I missed the first match and caught some of the Fenix/Trent match, which seemed good. I saw the highlights of the opener today and it looked pretty good. Statlander/Shida was pretty decent and it's nice to see Statlander get a good win. I think they really blew it with the post-match stuff and they definitely took the heat from her with the stupid Brandi shit. What's the point of the win if you just forget about 5 minutes later because of some goofy angle? It's not like they can't fix it by bringing it up next week but I still think it would be better if everything was booked differently. Brandi's stupid shit about joining up with her and Kong reminded me way too much of the goofy, overdone Dark Order vignettes. This company needs to decide what they are. Are they realistic sports-esque wrestling or are they goofy and unrealistic? The Cody promo was good but again, you've got realistic Cody cutting a killer promo but then he's mentioning his goofy wife in the same promo. I think it takes you out of the show and the promo when he brings up his wife's weird gimmick and angles. The Blade and Butcher vignette was decent enough but did resemble the Dark Order stuff and Brandi's cult. Allie hasn't come across better in AEW than that vignette, which is good. Keep her and Brandi away from the ring. Pentagon/Daniels was nothing special, and it just made me wish for a Lucha Bros. match. I used to think Penta would make a great main event guy but now I'm not sure. The Jericho segment was fun and put over Moxley well Janela's promo was fine until Moxley came in with his corny line and made him look like a geek. Their match was fine but nothing special, and Moxley looked good, which was the point. I think Moxley needs to win the belt soon since he's pretty hot and there is plenty of time for him to chase and build more heat for the match. He's #2 on the roster in my book because people know him but he isn't totally established as some sort of made main event guy. Put the belt on him and have Omega chase towards a rematch at the end of the year.
  3. I didn't watch the whole thing yet but the one thing that really stood out was Rip Rayzor (I think it was him) doing a drop down and actually tripping up his opponent. One of the only times I've seen that move given some context and meaning.
  4. With strikes like that, it's amazing his MMA career wasn't longer
  5. Am I the only one that hates when companies switch belt designs? If it ain't broke, don't fix it.
  6. C'mon, he's way better than fucking Erik Watts. Leave this place.
  7. Bash at the Beach is returning January 15th for Dynamite in Miami. Pretty cool but weird that it's in January.
  8. I thought this episode was pretty solid but didn't have too many dynamic matches outside of the PAC/Page match, which wasn't even as good as their match at Full Gear. I'm not sure why they even booked that match again after Page won clean and it felt like 50/50 especially with the, IMO, flat finish. Who gives a shit that Page won on Saturday now? Nyla looked better than she ever has and probably because her opponent sold and bumped well for her (despite her strikes looking like shit). Luchasaurus returning was great and, looking at him, I hope he doesn't tear anything else anytime soon. I do not want to see either Brandi or Kong wrestle at anytime. Their build-up is decent but Brandi I imagine still stinks in-ring. The PnP angle was great and did an amazing job of setting up their match with Private Party. Good booking for that one especially since it also sets up for the inevitable return match with the Bucks. Going into the main, I thought they were going to pull a WWE and take the belts off of SCU so soon but I'm glad they didn't. Hopefully, they don't immediately sign some singles match with Sky and Jericho and have Jericho win. They need to let this simmer and keep them apart for a while. Also, that MJF promo was great and furthered the story well. I'm still confused on whether he is Inner Circle. I hope he isn't since Inner Circle already has a big man badass, and Hager doesn't need to be overshadowed by anyone right now.
  9. I do agree that he wouldn't be any type of asset to any other company and he's a little too slow to be working with some of those AEW guys. However, if they start granting releases for every guy that tweets about wanting one, then it sets a precedent. From a business standpoint, they don't want to be sending the message that all you have to do is tweet about wanting out, and you'll get a release. I feel bad for him and Kinellis but how did they not see this coming?
  10. That was how you do a fucking go-home show. This was probably my favorite Dynamite episode yet. The women's match was pretty damn decent but I hope they don't make a habit of pinning champs as build-up to championship matches. The main event was pretty damn fun, despite the shitty finish. Of course, the post-match stuff was nuts and managed to tie all the big matches together well. That Cody promo was straight fire and has me sold more than ever on the Full Gear match.Then, that stupid Inner Circle video was nuts too and maybe it didn't make me want to see Full Gear any more than I already did but it sure was entertaining. Good stuff and Full Gear looks amazing with the triple threat tag, Bucks/LAX, Cody/Jericho, and Moxley/Omega all being bangers.
  11. It was pulling teeth to get Vince to do anything with Bryan or even to get him to stop bashing his size on commentary. Right now, Cole isn't as over as Bryan was back in 2013, and he's basically starting over when he gets to the main roster. I'm not saying Vince will bash Cole on commentary for being a small indy darling but he will definitely have a major uphill battle towards being some main eventer.
  12. Last night's Rusev angle might be one of the worst in the company's history. I can't think of much worse. Maybe Katie Vick. So much cringe.
  13. I saw Wardlow at a NEW show over the summer and he seemed to have potential. He did a lot of big man stuff and has a great look.
