  1. Time for the long overdue AEW Mixed Tag Team Titles*. Cole/Baker Perry/Jay Sammy/Tay Kingston/Soho King/Hart Kip/Ford Blade/Bunny OC/Statlander That's a pretty decent KOR style tournament right there. *Please don't TK.
  2. Not a baseball fan by any stretch but Domingo German's perfect game is already making the rounds in my social circle here in Melbourne.
  3. Heel Perry should come out in a black turtle neck with a dark suede jacket. Then he should look straight down the camera and say "Christian was right" Then leave.
  4. AEWxNJPW Battle Bowl? Team up a random AEW star with a random NJPW star in a tag team tournament. The winning team earns matches against their respective world champions. This gives enemies a reason to reluctantly work together for their own personal gain. If you have say 16 teams to start, get the first round done on TV with the last 8 teams going to the PPV. That gives you 7 tag team matches for the night. -First rRound (4 matches) -NJPW Women's Title match -Second Round (2 matches) -AEW Women's Title match -Final Round. Imagine some of the amazing teams you could put together for this - Kenny + Ospreay/White, MJF + Naito, OC + Suzuki, Danielson + ZSJ...
  5. Bryan Danielson doing a Cowboy Bob Orton tribute could actually be amazing. Then when the cast comes off he should go full Heel Luger; "I had an adamantium bone put in. Secured it with vibranium screws. Then I had the witch mother of the Arizona Earth clan cast an all vegan spirit bonding spell to fuse the tendons with the strength of Gaia itself..." Then he can run around just clubbing people with Misawa style elbow/forearm smashes.
  6. I actually hope the third match is built up as this insane epic and then it ends in 15 seconds after Kenny just punts Ospreay in the crotch as his opening move. That or Ospreay spends weeks hyping up a new move. A way to get the win. A way to #killkenny and when the bell rings he just hits him with a thumb in the eye and a backslide for the 1,2,3.
  7. Bucks/Hangman/Starks vs Mox/Claudio/White/Juice Get some real Bullet Club vs Elite tension going. Yuta v Shota on the kickoff as mentioned earlier would be aces.
  8. The Santino Rumble. It wasn't an official win but geez... they should have absolutely called an audible on that.
  9. Shawn & Hunter is actually a fascinating personality study. I'm sure Hunter wasn't perfectly behaved but to see the path Shawn was going down, the path Nash started going down, the path Waltman DID go down and then how badly Hall ended up, for Hunter to essentially be the 'Straight Edge, designated driver, goody two shoes' of the Kliq feels... bizarre. Hunter is the guy that would be learning TV, sitting in gorilla, going to meetings etc and learning all he could. Then these four are hitting clubs, drinking, drugging etc Totally oil and water. EDIT: And now I can't help but wonder if Hunter was actually hooking in with these guys purely for the political clout... This entire friendship might have been built on the foundation of "I need to get in with this guy to help my career" rather than any genuine connection. I'm sure that a genuine bond formed over time but, on the surface, this now looks like a straight up power play from Hunter to make sure he got to the top of the card as quickly as possible. I feel like if Shawn didn't have that break to heal up and find Jesus then there might have ended up being a pretty serious split at some point. No way Hunter can get pushed so hard in 99/00, while also making a move on Steph, with drugged up HBK hanging around the upper midcard and going to parties after every other show.
  10. All absolutely true. I think the reason it doesn't get looked at enough is because the 'Heel Authority Figure' became such a horrible trope for years and years afterwards without considering WHY Vince was so perfect in that role. The real life owner, who really screwed the face of a generation in Bret, who was then 'out to get' the next guy the fans had anointed (Austin) was a god damn perfect arc. I've said it before; Screwing Bret won Vince the 'War' with WCW. It's the single biggest catalyst in kicking off the Attitude Era, launching Austin which then launches Rock, who took Foley with him so that Foley could put over Triple H who is now THE guy in professional wrestling. NONE of this happens without Vince screwing Bret and that single, kayfabe shattering, moment is why Vince worked as a heel boss while Bischoff, JBL, Regal, Steph etc all felt less than.
  11. This will always be the winner. Even as a kid, it blew my mind how many guys fell for that. Did they ever make an angle out of it? I feel like Nash would absolutely book himself to be the first (and only) guy to hit a powerbomb on Kidman...
  12. All absolutely true. The issue they will have is ret-conning the history of the unified title so that Roman's name can go up with Hogan's, Backlund's & Sammartino's. Unless he holds this unified title for another 1000 days (or they merge the history & try to delete the likes of McIntyre, Lashley, Big E from history) there will always be an asterisk next to his reign.
  13. Can't recall Cody ever hitting one... I know he definitely pays his air bill though.
  14. I wonder if Reigns had been out longer and didn't come back until his WWE Title win, 500-odd days ago, if they still would have held off on Cody. I feel like Roman getting to 1000+ days as champion (and potentially going past everyone bar Bruno & Backland) is something they really want to have happen... eeeeven though he would be the UNIVERSAL champion for 1000+ days, NOT WWE champion and to merge the history of the titles is going to be clunky/ugly AF* and they clearly didn't plan on having such a historic run otherwise Roman would have won the WWE Title to start with. This is why having two world champions is dumb.
  15. Love it. I'd even have ZSJ win and take the title to the All In match vs Danielson.
  16. Cole is a perfectly fine midcard title guy. He can be a cheating dick heel or an undersized/underdog babyface. He sells well. He's over with the crowd. I like him well enough but I don't buy him as THE guy in a promotion.
  17. Can't wait for this show. I wonder how all the various Bullet Club factions will play into the show? The 'easy' route would be for Cole to ask for help from his buddy Jay White to beat up the JAS one last time. Jericho, Hager, Daddy Magic, Cool Hand & Garcia vs Cole, White, Juice, Finlay & Connors Do we actually get Punk v KENTA ? I could see Sanada defending vs Mox. He's the guy that TK always goes to for these bigger matches. MJF v Tama? Shingo? I don't know who's available here. I dont want to see Tanahashi vs MJF if I'm honest. Do we get some conflict from guys like Shibata and Kingston who run on both sides of the line?
  18. I'll echo the "What were you thinking?" line around the women tonight. All good to run the angle with Hayter and Storm but to then turn around and have Jade lose in an impromptu match was annoying. That should have been dragged out to Collision debut with Stat calling Jade out night after night only for Jade to find another reason to duck her. Get to Collision. "No outside interference" rule and BOOM you hype a great main or semi main event with a title change people have been looking forward to.
  19. How much of this is on the coach? First year, rookie coach. Could argue the regular season was (mostly) on the players winning games they were meant to win. It was an unusually low winning record for the top seeds wasn't it? No doubt that the players are under performing but damn, any chance of changing ANYTHING about the setup between games to try and get a spark?
  20. I'm in my mid 30s and fell in love with wrestling during the attitude era. I've not gone back as far as Superstar's era but watching the clips in here you can see so many little bits and pieces. His cadence and voice sound so much like Dusty Rhodes. His language is a combo of Flair and Hogan. His persona is all Big Poppa Pump. It's actually incredible. May he RIP.
  21. Elite v Punk/FTR? Danielson v ZSJ? PAC v Ospreay? Hayter v Saraya? MJF v Jungle Boy? Can they get Drew? Another Darby/Sting tag match for 'Sting's last ever UK Match' Think they could absolutely stack the card if they want to.
  22. Did a little digging an apparently they have said that if a SDL guy wins then he becomes part of the RAW roster with a "compensation trade" to be determined. Still doesn't excuse leaving out RAW exclusive guys like Strowman, Reed, Owens, Zayn & Riddle... Or exposing guys like Ricochet, Gable, JD, Woods... Kofi is injured yeah? What about Free Agents like Omos, Corbin, Roode & Ziggler? Or the biggest miss of them all; The reigning Intercontinental Champion - Gunther. Leaving him out is inexcusable, from both a kayfabe POV and a meta POV.
  23. I agree with you. In the nicest way possible; She looked... ill.
  24. The real issue is that WWE want to have a world title on RAW while also being able to acknowledge Reigns as having a 1000+ day run with the WWE Title, when that's not possible. He's at around 400 days now. If you want to merge the Universal and WWE Titles and claim that he's had a 1000 day run then you need to either put a big asterisk on it or you need to delete a few other people from the title's history. Drew -> Orton -> Drew -> Miz -> Lashley -> Big E-> Lesnar -> Lashley -> Lesnar That's the title from 1000 days ago. It's such a mess they've made here with multiple world titles. Imagine the sort of runs and reigns that Bruno and Hogan would have had if WWE had two 'World' champions...
