  1. C'mon, he's way better than fucking Erik Watts. Leave this place.
  2. Bash at the Beach is returning January 15th for Dynamite in Miami. Pretty cool but weird that it's in January.
  3. 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.
  4. 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?
  5. 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.
  6. 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.
  7. 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.
  8. 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.
  9. I imagine Jacob Fatu is going to get offers from everywhere, especially WWE. I seem to remember Dave speculating on that as well.
  10. Having Hager go no contest was a great booking decision since it protected him without having him get his first loss. Excellent writing and character development.
  11. Can you believe it guys? Someone in that company actually told Gable he had to get tights that said Shorty G on them, and they needed to look like they came from the set of Space Jam
  12. Then why the hell did they sign her to a full-time deal?
  13. I was there live and everything just flew by. The opening tag was great and red hot but the SCU/Dark Order fight was hard to follow since the Inner Circle was up there. It probably came off better at home, along with the Cody angle. They really tried their best with Britt and she was over live, although most people in my section were only cheering her because of the Steelers shit. It was a fine match but she just doesn't impress me at all. There was also a 4-way on Dark with Sakura/Ford/Gibbs/Allie that was horrible except for Sakura. AEW needs some help with their women. The main was good and the finish wasn't shit on too bad live, plus when it went off the air they sent people home happy. It was a good way to protect both of them when you can't beat either. BTW, did the TNT broadcast show the idiots with the Trump flag? Great show overall and a lot of fun. The place wasn't sold out but it was still pretty packed with only some sections on the hard camera side empty.
  14. Mercedes Martinez would be a great pickup as she is definitely a star. Maybe she just wants to work indies or something since I imagine she'd be signed somewhere by now.
  15. Boy, that Nyla Rose/Leva Bates match was rough, from Dark. AEW's women's division is totally awful, right now. The only star they have is Riho, and everyone else is just there. Nyla has a ton of presence, and in time, could be a big star. Britt Baker is pretty disappointing, and ladies like Allie and Brandi are no good. How is it that Impact has a much stronger women's division than this place?
  16. I really enjoyed the show. The best match had to be Marafuji/Elgin but the Ladder match and main were pretty good. I thought for sure Tessa was winning it especially with how all the heat was put on her and Cyrus putting her over but I guess not yet. I hope they eventually get around to putting one of the belts on her since it'd be pretty original and fresh for a major company to do. RVD looked to be in good shape but his HBK emotionless heel turn was puzzling. The Shamrock match was not amazing but still pretty nostalgic which is basically what it should have been. I'm looking forward to the AXS era and I just wish this is the kind of product we were getting back in like 2006 from this company.
  17. I'm giving this card a try since I'm in the mood for some regular wrestling (outside the WWE Universe of robot wrestlers and announcers). This'll be my first Impact show since the old weekly PPVs and I think it'll be fun. I really want to see Shamrock, and hopefully Tessa win the strap. Plus, I really liked the angle they did with Cage and Callihan on their go-home show.
  18. Anyone know how much Bound For Glory is?
  19. Pretty solid stuff tonight and they finally decided to not overbook the main event finish. The women's match started pretty rough and I really don't buy Baker as a babyface at all. I loved how they managed to protect Pac and still have him eat the cover. The main finish was a little sleazy but I think going into AEW, I pictured them just having all clean finishes, etc. and that just isn't very realistic. Darby looked like a million bucks, even though he lost, which is what the WWE should've been doing in those AJ/Cedric matches. Oh yea, and I forgot that awesome Cody vignette. I can't wait to see it live next week too, should be fun.
  20. When it comes to Mike Kinnellis, if the guy is going to be miserable for the next five years, why not just let the guy go? It's not like the guy has so much untapped potential that a company like AEW would benefit off of WWE's loss. This guy isn't going to be a main guy in too many major places around the world. To me, it seems like the guy just wants to work more, so I say let him do it. Like others have said, if they want they can keep Maria around because it's clear she has always been the focus since they returned. Let him go and have fun working for ROH or Impact or MLW.
  21. I don't really think these numbers are surprising since it was a curiosity show with a lot of buzz. To parrot Dave a little, six months from now or a year from now, will it be the same? I imagine it's going to drop off a little but not to the point of that 500K number TNT was happy with. They seem to be good for a bit, as long as the quality doesn't go off a cliff anytime soon. Maybe NXT can hire Russo or something to complete the trifecta of 90's bookers. Vince will definitely throw more stuff on NXT though. I thought Dynamite was a fun show which didn't disappoint but I was expecting some sort of wild Young Bucks/Lucha Bros. style match. This thing has got me caring for a product again and I like that, and I'm in going forward.
  22. Yea, I'm in the middle of it now. Surprisingly, he got a fair amount of clean wins. In fact, here it is: Superstar Billy Graham
  23. I promise I won't hype every single new post I make but I'm pretty excited about my new project. I'm starting to look at who had the strongest and weakest WWE championship reigns as heels. I really am intrigued by the dichotomy between the McMahon's booking of babyface champs versus heel champs. I'm going to use results to look at booking of champions and see how far I can get. I'll be looking for clean wins and losses, and who those were against. I also have a post on AWA enhancement star George Gadaski at my page. Heel WWE champions #1-Ivan Koloff
  24. So, I'm working on a project for my blog, and I need to use WWE results. Is the most comprehensive/best site for this History of WWE, or is there a better source?
  25. I just got done watching most of the show, and while it might have been the company's worst effort so far, it was still highly entertaining. My favorite two matches were Omega/CIMA and the main event. It was good to see the Bucks forced to slow down with guys like the Rhodes. Brandi/Allie was probably the worst match on the main card and it was about what I was expecting from the two. I'm assuming this will build up to Kong/Allie v. Kong/Brandi at All Out. The opening women's match was a little better but not as good as the matches from the last two shows. They should have gotten Baker out of there right away and should have never let her get back in the ring. Lucha Bros/SCU was fun and Pentagon has so much presence and charisma. I enjoyed that match more than their matches with Bucks since it wasn't a total spot fest. The three-way tag was decent and they need to push the hell out of Jungle Boy and Luchasaurus, going by their crowd reactions. Admittedly, I skipped Sabian/Page and the 6-man tag, along with the other Buy-In match. I enjoyed the angles with Jericho and I also thought they need to learn how to properly time these shows. The arena looked nice but I hope they don't over-rely on the place in the future. Commentary was good but Marvez definitely doesn't need to be there. I'm not as hard on him as others and I do think he is the best third man in the business, if that means anything. At least, they let him talk a little and he did have a couple interesting things to add throughout the night.
