  1. She was also a pale, raven haired kid, in a locker room full of tan, blonde, fitness models. The NXT crowd ADORED her and that probably saw her get a push up the card and onto the main roster waaaay ahead of time. Put her in NXT during the Bayley-Asuka-Baszler run and she's lost in the shuffle.
  2. With Strickland now a heel it's gonna be awesome hearing the crowd troll his entrance theme. "Who's house?" SARAYA'S HOUSE!!
  3. Jericho stooging as the ROH champion is exactly where I wanted the JAS to be. Low-mid card comedy stuff that just gets under people's skin. Happy for the Acclaimed. Should have won after the boom box - Blockbuster - Mic Drop spot. What happened to Caster there? Did he fall or did Swerve push him and the production team missed it? Main event was... fine. The Death Rider is anything but these days. It's a Butterfly suplex and not a very good one. Stick to the Mick Foley DDT Jon.
  4. It's only been the last couple of months for me TBH. But when Ford licked Willow's face you had the team all expressing varying levels of disgust/shock and then JRs sitting there mocking them screaming "She licked her face. She licked her face!" in the most obnoxious voice. It's almost like he hates being there at times.
  5. Can't wait for JR to fuck off.
  6. It's a fine line isn't it? It felt like Deeb/Baker had a run down of the story - Injure Athena as the FIP, hot tag to Storm followed by Baker/Deeb cheating to win and the Hayter spot post match. I can see a case for what you're saying but, specific to this match, someone as intelligent as Deeb should be working the leg specifically to take away Athena's move-set. "Grounding the high flyer" isn't a hard concept to grasp but when matches are called on the fly more often than not, it can lead to some weird interactions. It really goes back to an issue that I think is greater than some wonky spots/selling/logic and that is AEWs continued issues with production and polish. WWE would book that match to the nth degree and it would feel a little hollow. We could all basically call the spots and theory of the match coming. AEW though are so... I want to say 'in the moment' that there's no consideration for something as small as "I shouldn't use springboards & knee strikes after having my leg worked".
  7. Most of the show felt like a bit of a slog but that main event was some great pro-wrestling. Great story telling with Jericho just being that step slower, that slight % weaker, that little bit desperate. Compare that to the women's tag where Athena had her leg worked on to open, then hit a springboard off the second rope and made the hot tag following a Meteora knee strike... Also was the crowd just not there for this show? Even my wife commented on how quiet the show was compared to normal. Is this an Albany thing liked steamed hams?
  8. We all dance around this but if stability is what they want then Danielson ain't it. He's one bad bump away from giving us another Interim Champion. I thought this was the perfect chance to crown Darby and really put the focus back on 'AEW Guys' with a program between him and MJF following Full Gear. Now I think we get Mox cementing himself as AEW's 'Top Guy' leading to MJF taking the title at Full Gear.
  9. Sugar Skulls as a compromise? Hunter gets his metal/death motif but we keep the colourful feel and put a greater focus on luchadores for a year. Then we rebrand again but instead of 'skulls' we get 'skols' and a year of Scandanavian bear fighters throwing bombs at each other ala Steiner v Goldberg. Theeeeeen we go from 'skols' to 'skills' and it's a year of NXT 'Pure' rules with the best technical grapplers the world has to offer. Theeeeeeeen....
  10. Darby, Sting & Muto v Pullman Jnr, Anderson Jnr & "A Mystery Partner" Bell rings and Muto IMMEDIATELY mists Sting in the face, leaving Darby 1 on 3. Sting makes the big heroic return, hot tag, pins Pillman to send the crowd home happy.
  11. AEW should bring back "Spin the Wheel" for a TV special every now and then. They have a roster that loves to ad lib and work without restriction so having them get a match stip right before walking through the curtain would be awesome. If they don't want to risk that then you spin the wheel on Dynamite for the match on Rampage. Just don't rig the wheel like WWE did. If it means we end up with a random Toni Storm v Bunny barbedwire tables match, or FTR v The Acclaimed in a Davey Richards on a pole match, then so be it.
  12. It would have been huge but I don't think anyone could have seen that coming. I honestly think it was meant to just be a one and done match but the reaction means a pivot to a short feud and The Acclaimed getting a run. Full credit to Swerve and Lee for embracing the heel turn as well. Can we use this to change their team name to "Strick-Lee Business" now?
  13. The Acclaimed winning the Tag Belts is going to be an all time pop in AEW history. It'll be like when Foley won the world title; replayed forever.
  14. Fuck it. Allin beats Sammy. Danielson beats Jericho MJF costs Mox At Grand Slam Darby wins the World Title (because unlike Punk, Danielson puts people over) and we have Mox/Kingston MDK'ing Jericho/Sammy with Eddie finally getting Jericho to tap out. MJF watches on from a sky box and we build to him v Mox at Full Gear. MJF goes over and we get a great build for the World Title between two AEW 'Pillars'. MJF can even pull the 'You wouldn't have that belt if it wasn't for me' promo. Him taking out Sting backstage would be huge heat as well. I know people will want Bryan as champion but I love the idea of him always falling just a breath short and not winning the AEW Title until he's right at the end of his run. "You don't put the title on Andre" and all that.
  15. I want a Buddy/Brodie/Julia v Butcher/Blade/Bunny feud that ends in a 6 person lights out match. The following Dynamite they all do the handshake of mutual respect end turn into a super group - Brodie as the leader and occasional World Title contender, Buddy the midcard guy putting on bangers for the TNT or AA titles, Butcher and Blade as the tag team with Bunny and Julia ending up in the Women's Tag Title Tourney that's going to come along sooner or later.
