  1. Keith Lee screams mid-card comedy act to me. Not that there's anything wrong with that.
  2. I'm shocked they're doing something substantive with Rey. Either they suddenly realized they had the goat on their books or Brock requested to work with him, I'll go with the latter. The feud has been awesome. Put the title on Rey. He's cutting the best promos of his career. Becky/Shayna promo was great too. Loved the call back to Ronda. Didn't watch the main event, but Seth needing guidance from Papa H when it all goes tits up for him made him look like the biggest loser ever.
  3. Cody is cool but not cool enough for a no limit tee, sorry.
  4. nxT matCHeS aRe onLY gOoD bEcAUse tHey rEheaRsE tHeM aT thE pC Cole and Bryan had an absolute banger. Have they wrestled before?
  5. Reminds me of that one Raw a few years ago in Hartford they had to postpone due to a snowstorm but still aired a bunch of segments in it's place. Turned out to be a pretty entertaining deal. Like jae I wasn't planning on watching, but I'll give it a shot.
  6. The Kingdom would be completely insane to jeopardize diplomatic relations with the US which includes a billion dollar arms deal holding a US public company hostage that houses an executive formally of the Trump administration that has a direct line to the president. The entire Saudi state only exists through cooperation with the West. They almost tanked the entire thing after the Khashoggi incident. Which makes me believe there is some kind of hold up within Saudi airspace and they pulled the plug.
  7. @hammerva Sasha & Alexa had no issues wrestling in the UAE.
  8. I think if NXT wasn't a satellite product of WWE then you would see a lot more solidarity being thrown around rather than dissenting views. The WWE refugee section of AEW's fan base are bound to be louder than most with such critiques. It doesn't shock me that there is this us vs. them mentality instilled in some that have made the switch over.
  9. I was with him until he threw Jay Lethal under the bus and called himself 2Pac's successor. Someone get Mark Henry on the phone.
  10. I've defended the company on occasion, much to my own detriment. But you can't get much more blatant than that. I don't know what's more infuriating, the shirt or WWE's apathetic response. Onto Bret's suplex, I once attended a seminar with Bret and commented on how aesthetically pleasing his suplex looked, and that it looked genuinely damaging to his opponent. He told us he would slap the mat as hard as he could on impact to create an extra ''snap''. It's the minor details. Bret was the king at that.
  11. What gives Tessa the right to jump the queue over girls like Bianca and Shayna? NXT is full to the brim with talented women, to the point where Deonna Purrazzo can't even get a match on television. Tessa could probably negotiate her way into a main roster contract, but I can't see it going over well with the women in Orlando. The last thing Tessa needs is more drama.
  12. Showerthought. Given his physiognomy and stature, the fact that Brandon Cutler isn't doing an Alex Wright tribute gimmick is a tremendous oversight.
  13. After seeing how good her English is, I feel Shida has the potential to translate really well when she makes the permanent move over. Tessa apparently signed long-term with IMPACT in July of last year, in what world is 15 months considered ''long term''? D'Amore tweeted on the announcement, saying: "Excited to have an elite athlete like Tessa Blanchard part of Impact Wrestling for years to come."
  14. Why wouldn't Jericho want the adulation and his name all over the product? it ties into his yearning for gratitude. I've read Nash's tweet a dozen times and still don't know what he's talking about.
  15. The fans with their hands on their heads was exactly my reaction at home. So well done. Call it AEW's influence or not, but I liked how they had Cathy read out the card for next week in advance. Good to see they're not resting on their laurels and playing it safe with this.
  16. So going forward, the top of the card is looking something like this - Cole/Ciampa, Gargano/Balor, Velveteen/Strong?, Dijak&Lee/UE Also they're definitely going through with Riddle/Goldberg aren't they? I can't see Riddle using the jackhammer and commentary laying the Goldberg stuff on thick without Goldberg's permission and agreement to an angle. It's one of the most out there feuds they've had in years. It really should lead to Goldberg calling out Riddle on the main roster, it would be a waste (albeit attractive ratings boost) to do it at Full Sail.
  17. Oh I agree with you there. Swagger sucks, and his sucking leaves him way more vulnerable to being sucked into the woke-lefts wrath than say, AJ Styles, who gets a free pass nowadays because his talent resists such critics. When the honeymoon period is over, we will get a far better look as to who is really over and who isn't. I do think you're overselling the amount of fans that share such a demand for inclusivity though. Nonetheless, one dip in quality and the pitchforks are ready to come out.
  18. The same crowd that were chanting ''We The People'' in unison two weeks ago?
