Just add the word "Casino" to it and you're golden!

Let this be your reminder that we have a Casino Gauntlet, which is different from a Casino Battle Royal, this Wednesday to determine the #1 contender at Forbidden Door.

Casino Gauntlet rules, though! All the fun of the Casino Battle Royal, without the problem of modern wrestlers having no clue what to do when it’s not their spot during a battle royal. But everybody knows how to roll out of the ring and pretend to be knocked out while they wait for their cue.

This is gonna sound blasphemous who hold the Jack Tunney/Gorilla/etc. "30 day rule" dear, but depending on the recovery time for this (not sure if the range I gave earlier was including surgery, rehab, etc.) I wouldn't rule out the possibility of just quietly keeping the title on him. Let one of the other 300 belts shine for a bit. Like, it's not the greatest or most creative idea, but I just can't help but feel like another tourney would take the shine off of the Owen and CC a bit (and I certainly do not want to go down the 'interim champ' road again). I'd just like to see something different here - what about doing an entire episode of Rampage where the whole hour is dedicated to a single, full-division gauntlet match or something? Or even another Royal Rampage like they do with the two ring setup during B&G week. Just to mix it up

 

Edit: Ha, you caught me typing @EVA(and I missed @Technico Supports post that you were quoting from last page) so I guess that idea's out the window

Casino Gauntlet is hilarious because it can end at any time, the entry intervals are seemingly random yet are mysteriously built around when commercial breaks happen, and I just LOL at the (in kayfabe) idea of like 60 guys milling about backstage in their gear for a spot in a match that may not materialize.

I personally enjoy it because the mass chaos last time brought us some hilarious exchanges among commentary, Taz/Ex hadn't made me laugh that hard since Dark left us

It’s going to be Jack Perry, either with the Bucks saying Edge isn’t allowed to forfeit the belt and making him have a (very quick and very very safe) match with Perry or with the Bucks literally handing Perry the belt. 
 

The first option is ok at best, the second is awful which means it’ll definitely be the second. 
 

Edit - I now see that @Cobra Commander beat me to it!

a multiman clusterfuck match between former TNT champions for the title

Darby vs Wardlow vs Christian vs Dustin in place of Cody vs probably not Miro vs Jack Perry in place of Sammy vs eh let's just forget about Scorpio Sky holding the title twice vs Killswitch vs Samoa Joe vs Powerhouse Hobbs

a nice and tidy 8 way match..

Wardlow/Hobbs/Christian/Killswitch/Perry eliminate Darby. Then Joe and Dustin have to fight off 5 guys somehow and they eliminate some of them. Then figure out who goes over in the end.

Powerhouse Hobbs is very injured. There's a whole epidemic of Bad Leg in AEW just now.

And by epidemic, I mean three guys got leg injuries in a short space of time. Hobbs, Kingston and Copeland.

obviously AEW needs one of those "I'm very retro" cosplay dork wrestlers whose entire gimmick involves never leaving their feet and trying to work as much of the match on the mat as possible to avoid injuring their legs doing stupid shit

only to injure their knee on a take down

THE PRECEDING IS NOT AN ENDORSEMENT OF SIGNING MATT RIDDLE, TONY

Bring in Colby Corino to do his only-working-a-headlock bit from DEAN~!

time to start using WCW TV title rules for the TNT title so that Colby can milk time limits with headlock work

Be interesting to see who they put the TNT Championship on. I'd like Claudio Castagnoli. Even Samoa Joe again.

It’s gonna be Jack Perry being handed the belt by the EVPs and we’re gonna hate it.

It'll be OK, they'll bring it out in a briefcase like they were Eric Bischoff making Triple H Raw World champion.

I hereby nominate The Outrunners for this role. They're already retro cosplay dorks that I love and one partner can react to the other injuring the knee.

Arn Anderson's contract with AEW expires on the 31st, and he leaving AEW.

I figured this would be the case when they cut Brock loose. Arn is having some real tough health issues, and deserves to relax a bit.

This might be a Mandela effect thing but I could've sworn there was a 20 minute time limit early on

Awww, I always had a soft spot for the big galoot but it makes too much sense. I hope he pops up sometime in a random way, dude will instantly get a huge pop if he cameos with that hat 😂
