  1. Reynolds has struck me as a neo Christian before Christian figured out his formula. Solid but lacking a physical or emotional superlative to provide a hook for the audience. I totally agree he needs something to stand out since he is currently the most average wrestler alive. Honestly he is super deep in the AEW shuffle and will stay there unless something changes.
  2. Is she not? I thought they quietly folded her in while Anna was out hurt.
  3. I think the argument on the board has usually been that Matt sells things between moves but it doesn't effect the moves he does typically speaking. If you were going to put him up against Chris Masters during his most popular run on this board, you'd see Chris hurt one arm in a match and then do Irish whips one handed afterwards, that kind of thing. Matt is more like 95% of the wrestling world now where he'll sell, do his thing normally and then sell again. The selling is done between spots rather than as a continuous spectrum. The Bucks are a victim of their time frame where selling is not seen as important as long control segments are out of fashion with lots of back-and-forth swings being the norm. In conclusion, I don't think Matt is a terrible seller but its not one of his superlatives either. I would place Eddie Kingston above him if you needed me to pick someone current.
  4. You could just do a tag and save the Britt v Rosa interaction for something more meaningful.
  5. Trying to create common ground. If we can all agree Jimmy is a shit bag, we don't have to go over that again. What in your mind is the optimal response for us to take against Cornette as people who don't give him any money?
  6. Here's where I am. I am willing to stipulate that Cornette is a giant piece of shit. Is anyone taking the other side here?
  7. I support Cornette like I support WWE. Sometimes I might listen to a snippet but I’m not cutting anyone any checks.
  8. Terrible people aren’t all morons and all morons aren’t terrible people.
  9. I'm not sure if there is a particular starting reason for this round of "Did you all realize that Cornette is a piece of garbage?" but he is. This doesn't change that he sometimes has good insight into wrestling production (although his reviews have been worse lately with a bunch of fast forwarding through stuff). You can probably get more nuggets from his podcasts than from other shows but you will have to run it all through your Cornette filter where you can toss large swathes of it in the trash. It's such a mixed bag that I would love a long formed podcast with a similar format without all the garbage but I don't know that it exists.
  10. Yeah but before that all he did was put over MJF, Brodie Lee and Darby Allin to the point where they could all main event TV.
  11. Ogogo hasn't wrestled since so I think putting him over Cody would have been the error.
  12. I can't really think of any other submission that would plant someone's face on the mat and drive it completely downward. Stuff like the Boston Crab or Ankle lock allow the person taking it to look up. Stuff like the Muta lock pries their head up. If you want to toss in the Crossface, you get a good visual of the person doing the move and at least part of the other person's face. Which also leads to the note that you can't really see Danielson's face either so there is also that.
  13. AEW DARK 2point0 (Matt Lee & Jeff Parker), Daniel Garcia, and Serpentico vs. Dark Order’s Stu Grayson, Colt Cabana, Alan “5” Angels, & 10 Fun match with a concept I hate in "we have a partner we don't want to work with" on the heel side of the fence. I just think having a partner you refuse to work with effectively is pretty dumb as you probably shouldn't have signed up for a 8 man tag match then. I just cannot rationally figure why it would happen in the meta. 2point0 were really good here but I really wouldn't like it if they fall in the pecking order behind the lower members of The Dark Order. I was willing to look at them doing jobs to the upper card as them finding a place on the card, but this makes them look closer to being at the bottom of the card instead of being in the mix. Colt Cabana really feels lifeless at this point just going through comedy spot motions. Angels without the mask is even more boring than him with it because now he's the third guy in his faction who is bald with a goatee. Serpentico seems to be the 'never does anything right' character and its a character I don't have a lot of time for. I'll post more later.
