I'd open with Hangman and MOX, maybe even have them brawling in the back to start the show and then flow into the ring and start from there.
Trios Titles should main event. No idea how it will go. Thought The Elite were going to steamroll them in the comeback match. The obvious thing would be The Elite winning and Death Triangle breaking apart into Pac v Fenix with Penta forced to pick a side.
Tony doesn't always do the obvious though and even when he does, he can take a lot longer than you would expect.
Very excited to see how it all plays out!

that swerve is almost too predictable by now though? like Toni's the scrub that just has to be knocked out of the match so that the real star takes her spot
Sasha/Mercedes is probably gonna have better luck than Saraya/Paige at being cheered by AEW fans vs Britt/Hayter, but it wouldn't hurt to have a somewhat not convoluted path to pivot in a few months if fans keep cheering Britt and Hayter in this feud
Instead of Shida beating down Toni, why not have Shida reach out to her "contacts back home" to team up with Mercedes?
Saraya/Storm v Hayter/Baker v Shida/Monet
That could give you multiple big name women's matches between now and Revolution.

If Vince was around they'd be called "Hook Boys" and run a gimmick where they using those old school comedy hooks to drag people who's promos go too long.
They'd spend 3 months feuding with Triple H & Seth Rollins before getting their heads shaved and being sent back to NXT.
Also fuck Jericho.
I'm not a fan of Cornette but he was right; The Action Andretti match was for Chris, not the kid. I don't think the JAS has made anybody they feuded with any more over.
The biggest winners are Daddy Magic promos and Hager's Hat.
They got me on the tag match.
I legit threw my phone down and yelled "Fuck off Jarrett!" My 7yo daughter reminded me to not swear in front of children haha
Super happy for Darby too. Now do SOMETHING with him beyond getting beat up for Sting. Wardlow coming back and trying to break him in half with powerbombs would actually be fine for Revolution.
What I want -Spoiler
Sami wins the Men's Rumble. Roman talks him into a match at Elimination Chamber instead. Rock interference leads to Sami pulling an Eddie and winning the WWE Title. Roman still Universal Champ.
Then redo the NXT ending with KO celebrating with Sami before trying to cripple him and turning heel in the process. KO can claim that Sami spent months licking Roman's boot and is an embarrassment as Champion. Sami Zayn vs Kevin Owens for the WWE Title night 1. Sami doesn't appear live until that night, doing all his promos via satellite.
Roman vs The Rock night 2. Cody can wait until MITB, SummerSlam or the return of KOTR.
Alexa Bliss wins the women's rumble and goes to SDL to face Charlotte, pairing back up with Wyatt in the process.
We can get to Ripley vs Belair without the Rumble IMO.
Is there a reason the did they title change here and not at the Rumble? Something up with Rousey?
Feel like they could have thrown out an "open challenge" and teased it a little.

I don’t know if I want to see Hobbs back there yet. I really don’t know where Hobbs stuff is going, but I hope it’s a face turn.
Give me Hobbs as the new Wardlow.
Fantasy booking -
He doesn't need to talk, just let him smash both guys for the double DQ. Then he beats Wardlow 1 on 1. Then he takes the title from Joe.
Wardlow then starts doubting himself and then MJF gets in his ear about a heel turn. DONT TURN HIM OR DO THE MATCH THOUGH. Just let it simmer while Wardlow has some more competitive matches working up the card.
Ideally I'd get to Wardlow vs someone like Darby or Jungle Boy for #1 contendership at Revolution in March with Wardlow vs MJF happening at Double or Nothing 2023, 1 year after their first match.

I’m interested in what the plan is for Wardlow tomorrow. If they believe in him enough to give the belt right back. Joe’s been an absolute killer in this run, and I wouldn’t want it to end, but it wouldn’t surprise me with how AEW books that the babyface doesn’t walk out with the belt to win it all. Which leads me to believe that they either go double DQ, or Wardlow wins by countering the Kokina Clutch for the surprise pin, that way we get a rematch with a decisive win.
I think we see Hobbs out there breaking both guys' backs. Hopefully with the return of the Bullfrog Splash as well.
Merry Christmas ya filthy animals!!
Today I realized that Bryan Danielson looks like the old man Marley from Home Alone and now I want him clobbering people with a snow shovel.

God I hope no one ever drills me on why my favorite wrestlers are my favorite. Some connections are intangible and no two people are going to have those same connections. And honestly its not really anyone else's concern anyway, like who you like. Unless you like Akira Taue or something, then you should do better. (I'm kidding, please don't ban me)
Sure, but now let me tell you why R-Truth is the perfect pro-wrestler...

you mean we're not gonna see if Gunther can make Brock Lesnar's upperbody look disturbingly pink at Wrestlemania?
Gunther v Sheamus at Elimination Chamber then?
Then Gunther is free to fight Brock while Sheamus defends against Solo Sikoa at Mania?

Post Mania though yeah?
I thought we were all pretty much on board with Gunther v Sheamus "One Last Time" with Sheamus completing the Grand Slam?

I hope this all means Luigi Primo is booked for Dynamite.
If we are doing the 'Wish for it and TK will provide" thing then...
Give me Konosuke Takeshita & Action Andretti v Daddy Magic & Cool Hand Ange, please and thank you.
You know what, the Gunns dethroning The Acclaimed is probably the right mid-long term move TBH.
They had Billy, then Stokley. Send them to Jarrett. Maybe Arn for a stint? Tell the story of them learning and getting better along the way and you could get a pretty cool run out of them.
I wanted FTR to take all the gold but now that they don't have the ROH titles (and will presumably drop the IWGP belts at WK) then the Gunns getting one back over The Acclaimed, winning the belts and maybe their Daddy's love in the process, would work just fine.
20 hours ago, Cobra Commander said:
guessing that Acclaimed vs Gunn Boys is pretty much settled for the moment?
but if it isn't.. after Jarrett/Lethal don't win the belts, then Jeff Jarrett adopts Billy Gunn's sons and renames them Austin and Colten Jarrett, and sends them after the Acclaimed. (Okay, probably not, for multiple good reasons). Jeff Jarrett shows up on shows with the energy of the guy who gets booked because he has a valid promoters license that the show needs.
"Jarrett teaching the Gunns MMA" is a backstage skit that needs to happen now.
In a world that's more open and accepting of porn/sex work as a legitimate option, businesses are more PC/moralistic than ever.
Imagine if Only Fans existed during the Attitude era. Or WWE doing Girls Gone Wild. Or the early 2000s stretch that saw half the female roster pushed to appear in Playboy.
Amazing how times change.

We would legit be to the point where you can do a Foreign Army (Saraya, Sasha/Mercedes, Toni, Ruby) vs. the Native Army which would include Britt, Hayter, and Jade for the first women's Blood and Guts. Problem is Tay and now Athena have already flipped to the heel side. Also, I am not sure where Rosa fits into all this.
The absolute last thing AEW needs to be doing is another nWo style "WWE v Home Grown" invasion/stable war.
It worked for a short time in WCW because the kayfabe line was blurred.
Today you risk damaging people on both sides - The new signings risk getting "go away" heat because people are watching AEW specifically because it's not WWE. The Home Growns risk being seen as 'less than' or legitimately under pushed which was the problem in WWE in the first place.
If Mercedes turns up in AEW she should absolutely get a big match to kick things off but to build a story around all the ex WWE signings would be a huge mistake IMO.
Personally I'd have her come in and say that she only signed if she got a Women's Title match to start because she's that special.
Build to her vs Hayter.
Hayter squashes her in 3 minutes.
Now the story is that, as good as you think you are Mercedes, you're at the back of a long & talented line of women. If you want to prove that you're as good as you've been saying then get to work at climb the ladder.
I said years ago that that Sasha needed to go and be a big fish in a small pond for a while. Prove to WWE that you are the star you think you are. Essentially the Cody Rhodes pathway of making yourself a big enough star that they give you what you want to go back.

My tournament bracket -
2003/04 WWE Eddie Guerrero vs 2022 AEW Bryan Danielson
This match would be story telling at it's absolute peak. The counters, the mat work, the Lucha mixed with the Strong style...
2007/08 WWE John Cena vs 2011/12 NJPW Hiroshi Tanahashi
It's 'peak' Ace vs 'peak' Ace. Cena was great in this time as a hated man who worked as a super face. Tanahashi was the ultimate "fave of a company" and the I think he could take Cena to the absolute limit.
1993/94 WCW Sting vs 2012-14 WWE Brock Lesnar
Sting's best ever work (IMO) was as the athletic underdog vs Vader. Lesnar's work when he first returned to WWE was next level. Before the Suplex City stuff started up he was really good at working his size and strength advantages into interesting matches.
1993/94 WWE Bret Hart vs 1999/00 WWE Mick Foley
I really loved Bret's work vs bigger guys in 93. The Razor match at the Rumble, the KOTR matches, the Diesel match... Foley in 99 was a madman and his turn as Cactus Jack made Triple H a main event star. I think these two could work a pretty vicious little match here.
Not sure on the semis and finals just yet... Will come back to it one day.
Have gone through a heap of permutations and came out with this -
2022 AEW Bryan Danielson vs 2011/12 NJPW Hiroshi Tanahashi
I think Bryan goes at top speed here and Tana can keep up. There'd be no wasted motion with them splitting Dragon Suplexes and reversals into/out of everything. Put it in the Tokyo Dome and let Tana get the big comeback from underneath with Bryan hitting the Busaiku then missing a headbutt and falling victim to the Hi Fly Flow.
1993/94 WWE Bret Hart vs 2012-14 WWE Brock Lesnar
Again, I love Bret's work vs bigger guys and prime Lesnar would be an amazing base for him to work on. I think Bret would lead a match that really toned Brock down but kept him looking like an absolute monster. More in the Angle v Lesnar model. Bret takes this with a shock small package out of the F5 because I want...
1993/94 WWE Bret Hart vs 2011/12 NJPW Hiroshi Tanahashi
This is just an incredible dream match. Bret's not going to get sucked into any kind of finisher bombing but he's going to work a brialliant 30-40 mins as a pseudo heel that have Tana being chopped down and dissected. It's going to be slower than the Danielson match, more deliberate and Bret clearly more of a heel who's looking to break the Ace down rather than knock him out. This takes a toll on Bret too though as Tana hits him with desperation bombs to break things up. Tana finally takes it after reversing the Sharpshooter into a Cloverleaf for the pass out submission in 47:24 to be declared the LWP Dream Match Tournament Champion!

Could you convince Piper to do a job thought?
If he won't then maybe run the belt through Orndorff? The other option is to use Bundy as the "Monster of the Moment" a year early?
Does Rock n Wrestling kick off the same way without Mr T and Hogan following the Rocky 3 connection?
7 hours ago, zendragon said:
For sure. But then the question is how do you take the belt off of Backlund and on to Randy with no Face/Face matches.
Backland to Shiek
Shiek to American Hero Slaughter.
Slaughter to Piper
Piper to Savage at Mania 1
Savage then gets the Hogan run through the late 80s before dropping the belt to Warrior
The biggest change is probably being able to convince Savage to drop the belt to Bret in a true passing of the torch at Mania 9. We'd also get a great Flair v Savage "Real Champion" match at Mania 8.
If Bret is the champ going into the "Lex Express" era I wonder if Luger keeps his mouth shut and takes the title.
This could mean we end up with Canadian Heel Bret, USA Hero Luger and Living Legend Savage all in WWE in the mid 90's. The flow on to WCW would be massive. No poaching Hogan and Savage. Luger doesn't take a pay cut to head over. Nitro doesn't get those huge moments.
I wonder then if Bischoff pivots and goes after the entire Kliq, bringing all of Nash, Hall, Waltman, Michaels and possibly Hunter across to be the nWo invasion?

Oh, I will also give them a million stars if MJF runs out and punts Takeshita in the crotch for the DQ win to immediately get out of Danielson's Iron Man match stipulation.
