  1. None of those. Women matches (singles and tag) and SCU and CIMA v Anjelica, Kip and Jack Evans.
  2. At the show. Fun crowd. Ending was so much fun. Dark Order is not over at all. Women’s Tag got a lot of heat once it got going. Codys Promo was just amazing. Washed up Jericho is best Jericho. “Youngest AEW Champ”
  3. Outside of not enjoying The Dark Orders gimmick, my biggest gripe with AEW is the production and the spamming of certain moves on shows. Not everyone needs to do a moonsault to the outside and everyone doesn’t need an Ace Crusher counter. Seeing everyone do the same moves takes me out of the match. (Double or Nothing had a million Death Valley Drivers).
  4. Show felt long towards the end. Omega-PAC felt like last month... even though it was my favorite of the night. No idea who is running the booth In production but they need to talk to the workers and figure out some of the spots. Lots of missed or barely missed moments in the whole show. The Dark Order does nothing for me or the crowd for that matter. More Best Friends, less dark order and their shitty gear it’s been mentioned but some of these dudes need to use that new AEW money for a good diet and a gym membership. Their matches are great but some dudes just don’t look impressive or big league. ill be at the Charlotte show. Very interested to see what’s next.

    NJPW G1 2019

    My goodness that SANADA / Okada match. Even with SANADA being “out” of the G1 it still brought the goods. Wow!!!

    NJPW G1 2019

    G1 rules everything. My schedule is better this year so I’m catching all the shows and matches and I am LOVING these young lions. Jesus they are going to be good. Mox/Cobb wasn’t the greatest but I enjoyed it and it was a match I was looking forward too. Everything else is awesome. Knife pervert is growing on me more and more. But, Ishi is MVP.
  7. The wrestlers gear had been mentioned earlier and it’s a great point. I first noticed that a lot of the guys had on Very similar gear. Not a huge deal but it stood out to me. Lots of green. Aside from the Lucha Bro’s. No one really looked big time. Time for some of these dudes to invest in their gimmicks. The roster are a bunch of tiny dudes. Luchasauraus looks like a legit monster around these guys and that’s one of the reasons the crowd loses it for him. He looks so different from everyone else and he’s got a great athletic and flashy offense that looks hurty. Joey Janella has been a guilty pleasure of mine but him rolling out of the ring and saying “Fuck you Cornette,” was very lame. What’s the point? What does that do? I really hope they work with the guys in their individual move sets. I’ve been on small Indy shows where a spot is done in the first or second match and the guys in the back say, “ok, that was a spot we planned. Can’t do that now.” If these smaller time guys know that, how is that not a thing in the 6 man where the finish was a DVD in the ring, but one was done on the apron earlier for an big spot? Im over analyzing this show too much, but I’m seeing things in AEW I don’t like and I hope they fix soon.
  8. Way too many Death Valley drivers. Brit Baker didn’t have a great outing. Luchasaurus is a star. Jericho looks like he needs a sober October. I know he’s older but he just looks like a drunk. That spinning elbow looks like crap. Hangman doesn’t do it for me. Kenny/Cima was fun. Production seemed to miss a ton of stuff. JR getting in the refs all night was awesome. Booth should only be 2 guys. Show was good but too long. Move sets and styles to me, are a little too similar and this is coming from a dude who loves PWG. Still looking forward to the entire AEW crew getting better and better and figuring it all out. The in ring, promos and announcing (at times) are more exciting than anything WWE has going.
  9. They were both on this past Sundays PWX show in Charlotte, NC and didn’t do anything together.
  10. Was the crowd absolutely silent at certain points or was it just me. When Revival came out and defended themselves it seemed to me like the crowd was just dead. And they also seemed to die during Miz TV. Wonder if Revival did turn down the new contract? Machine Gun and Gallows should have won...
  11. Just a good old fashioned stomp to the throat. (Wish they didn’t do that cut) I loved that Walter and Dunne was different than the other matches. Much more hurty.
  12. That’s an interesting take. Move always enjoyed Coles work and felt he kept up with gargono at this stage. When he has to play the over the top heel telling the good guy it isn’t his day, he loses me a bit, but overall I think he does a great job.
  13. Oh Walter is such a star. My wife who mostly half pays attention to shows and only ever asks about Bailey thought Walter looked “mean.” That’s a good reaction in my opinion. i think dunne deserved the match he got, but I would have liked to see Walter with a 10 minute beat down to lead to more matches then end with something like what we saw. However, still loved it. Adam Cole hit a Panama Sunrise. That was interesting. Loved this show.
  14. I picked up this shirt at the Smackdown house show that just came through here. It's actually a comfortable shirt that fits! It's not to the soft tee level that pro wrestling tee's shirts can be, but it's not GIldan quality. Unfortunately, "THE MAN" shirt I also got is the usual shitty WWE shirt quality.
  15. At the house show I went to Sunday night, Miz and Ali worked a match. Ali hit a 450 not the 054. I was bummed because I was explaining to my non-fan buddies how cool his move is and then he didn’t do it.
  16. Basically all of this. Cory was annoying in continuing to ask Renee about Dean and Renee just couldn’t keep up. Add to the fact this is a blood fued and Renee couldn’t be bothered. Bryan with dragons on his knee pads and a small package win? Long live the dragon. Hope we get a Becky and Askua fued.
  17. I’m glad Bryan isn’t doing the show. True American Dragon.
  18. Joe totally kept Kayfabe Legitimacy as well as "shooting" in the softest sense. Give him the title for at least 6 months. This was so good. As for meltz. I subscribe. I enjoy all of it. I roll my eyes HARD when Bryan makes a joke and Meltz misses it. I think Dave should have just said, "I made a bad fake boob joke, and i'm sorry." However, talking for as long as he did and tweets, i'm fine with his apology. And I REALLY like Peyton.........

    NJPW Dominion 2018

    I usually have watched NJPW shows the next day through... well... other means. I'm currently in Europe for work so im closer to their time zone where watching these shows live would make sense. After a little google-fu, I saw as I was leaving the gym it was 8pm in Japan, so I thought, "I'm headed back to my room and signing up for NJPW World and watching this..." Not realizing the show started at 9am my time. When I finally got logged in, the stream started with them putting the belt on Kenny.... FUCK!!! Then I made the stream start from the beginning, opened up instagram on my phone and got the Bucks with the belt photo and Jericho with the belt photo.... Still amazing either way. Even knowing Kenny won the last 15 minutes has me on the edge of my seat. GOLDEN ELITE!
  20. This surely motivated AJ and Nak. Up to them now to destroy it. Main had a real heel and a real face. And the crowd was with it. So awesome. Gargano can be the next American Dragon if they let him. Everything else was awesome. Only gripe is how long ember moon hangs in brutal submissions against a legit fighter. Shayna GETS pro wrestling. She’s amazing.
  21. All four of the women in the ring at the end was awkward. And Dunn did the same thing they did with AJs debut. Asuka not taking the shake ruled. Old guard vs new guard in the men’s rumble ruled.
  22. Rhoode looks VERY small next to HHH. Was pretty surprised by that. Not letting Nakamura and Balor just Strong Style each other for about 4 minutes was a bummer. The ending with all the story line really blew a chance for them to get over new people... Was it me, or was the crowd not reacting like I would imagine the WWE wanted during Cena/Angle and pretty much everything else? Nakamura and Roode did get some offense in on HHH... But why can't HHH do more to get these dudes over? How do we get the Authority off our TVs? Do I have to cancel my WWE Network sub and just torrent? UGH.

    Didn't know R.D. Evans was a writer for WWE. Saw a picture of him and Drew Gulack backstage from the show and was surprised. Good for him! I wonder what his contributions have been so far.
  24. I've been a subscriber to FloSlam since WM weekend this year. I've probably used the service a total of 7 times. Of those 7 times I want to say I was able to get through 5 different shows, but that isn't the case. Even after a show was archived I could hardly ever get it to work. Having a streaming service in 2017 that doesn't just "work" isn't going to get my money anymore, regardless of the wrestlers they have on the shows. The pages layout (for the wrestling section) was horrendous. It was so hard t navigate and I never really knew what they actually had content wise. I understand sometimes streaming is a struggle, and they don't have the pockets of NetFlix, but the service nearly never worked for me. So glad I canceled my subscription early in the month.
  25. Dolph felt.... lame. Worse than The Miz doing another version of Jumping Jeff Farmer (it seemed like that to me). Could have done without Dolph. Fandango is so amazing in these. Cena second and chad2bad et all next. Really funny. Man, my goodness. Susan...... First one was better but this was still very fun with laugh out loud quality jokes. Ordered a SPPW shirt and a Lethal leap year shirt as well!
