You think Jericho could be talked into losing his hair for a paycheck and told “if Rob Halford doesn’t need hair to rock, you can pull it off”

Too many people would confuse him with Dr Luther.

When Claudio made the save with that comically large pry bar, I half expected a turn from him. 

I'm hoping we don't get a Claudio turn at the ppv. Or a turn from Danielson. Or a turn from anybody else.

Dax Harwood had underrated chops.

Taz knows, he always mentions Dax having heavy hands.

Look at Tommy Billington's chest after their match, I don't think he underrates Dax's chops.

Wednesday night’s episode of AEW Dynamite averaged 672,000 viewers on TBS, down 5.5 percent from last week. It’s the lowest audience total for a Wednesday airing of the show since June 24, 2020.

Damn.

Well when you put your world champion in a match with Cage, Your women’s champion in a match with Saraya’s lackey, and you main event with Dax Harwood the number is gonna look bad. Especially against NHL and NBA playoffs. Heck the NFL schedule reveal from 8-9 probably did higher numbers too. Just to be clear I did watch AEW, and the schedule reveal wouldn’t get me as a viewer. I’d rather read it in ten seconds than watch an hour of it.

There was a moment where Schiavone described it as "....like a...large crow bar" and Taz chimed in as though to correct him before settling on "yeah, that's exactly what it is". 90 seconds later Taz was mumbling that he knew the babe for this incredibly large pry bar and it was killing him that he couldn't think of it. As someone who interviewed for a promotion yesterday and at different points forgot the words "credibility", "leadership", "direction" and "motivation" I felt his pain.

 

Enjoyed Ospreay's segment with Strong. Particularly enjoyed when Taven asked "what's a bellend" to which Ospreay replied, "you're a bellend mate" and then named all of Undisputed Kingdom bellend.

What is the deal with Serena Deeb's flag? I can't think of a dorkier thing for a face to do then stand at the top of the ramp holding a flag and smirking at your opponent.

Her outfits and hairstyle are much, much worse.

Damn.

Growing pains. Plus two different sports leagues having playoff games. The show has gotten better. They gotta just stay the course.

The Willow-Mercedes contract signing was thoroughly enjoyable. Mercedes has been getting stronger and stronger with her mic game. She's finding her groove. This one worked perfectly. And Willow is killing it! Easily one of the best natural organic babyfaces in the business. I felt butterflies in my stomach seeing Willow hit that powerbomb. Easily the most meaningful powerbomb/table spot in ages. So goddamn stoked for Willow v Mercedes. I think we're all best to keep an eye on the actions of Stat and Stoke.

They have good chemistry, I’m interested to see if they keep this going past the PPV. It happens often in AEW 2 women build so steam in a program for the title. They have the match at the PPV the champ moves on to another challenger then then momentum stops for the other person. Willows promo ability is awesome on top of the early Babyface Bayley vibes everyone loves. They need to keep her featured strong. I don’t expect her to win but I would have her go over. Mercedes is a made women , even though it probably wouldn’t be a good look to lose her first match but this shouldn’t have been her first match anyway

How the fuck is Darby back from getting hit by a bus?  Lol.   I'm happy he's back though.  

The bus story was a bit overblown.  Was more like Darby leaned into the bus. According to Meltzer - who was just repeating what Darby said - Darby and an acquaintance were crossing the road at night. Darby looks over and sees a bus making a turn at 5 to 10 mph, but doesn’t think the bus driver will see them in the dark.  Other guy is in his mid-60’s and doesn’t walk well, so Darby tries to get him out of the way.  Somehow, as the bus goes by, Darby’s face makes contact with one of the bus’ side windows. Contact broke Darby’s nose, but he was well enough to go to whatever event they were on their way to before seeking treatment.

Name of the other guy meant nothing to me, but he’s apparently a famous punk rocker or something,

Ray Pettibon. Famous for his cover art and poster art in the punk rock/hardcore scene.

The biggest problem with AEW right now is that unless you primary watch AEW on your DVR you have literally no clue when non Dynamite shows are.  Hell even a couple Dynamites have to been at weird hours.

That's a good point. I'd also be curious as to what the +7's are on weeks like this.

There was also a pic floating around before the story even broke where Darby had his nose bandaged but was hanging out with Tim and Sam from I Think You Should Leave. Didn't see it here, though, just on Reddit.

Quoth Meltzer:

Quote

Allin said that he still wasn’t healed from his broken foot and being hit by a bus in New York, and then said when he was under the ring and Harwood gave Okada the superplex, that one of the steel supports of the ring hit him in the head and he may have a concussion.

We may need a replacement for the replacement.

Is Kingston legit injured or is that just a work to build a "will the faces be down a man?" angle for the match?

I didn't see the match so bear in mind you're working with third hand info here, but I BELIEVE I read one of the fellas here say there was a bad ankle landing
