I was pretty sceptical of this venture when they first started but I’m stoked for the top 3 matches now and I’m excited to see what they present. WWE is so stale now these guys have a good opportunity to break out but they have to look big time.

They'd easily sell out MSG.

They have a relationship with AAA of some sort, maybe they get involved with that MSG show in September.

I think that would sellout as quickly as the G1.

So the 7 matches announced plus entrances would presumably be a solid three hours, with the top three singles matches all getting decent time. That seems like a sweet spot to me - quality over quantity.

I wonder if they throw in an unannounced show opener a la Matt Cross / MJF from All In?

Tracy Smothers vs a bear. That's how i'd open the show. Probably explains why i'm not a booker.

Tracy in his confederate gear getting mauled by a bear would be the perfect opener for the more progressive AEW audience. 

There's something strange about the match however. Despite not having thumbs, the bear is able to grasp and is quite proficient using chairs, tables, barbed-wire baseball bats, etc. Then, a masked man jumps out of the crowd with a leash, collar, and gimp mask. The bear becomes docile as the man enters the ring. The man puts the collar around the bear's neck, connects it to the leash, and puts the gimp mask on the bear's head. The bear's owner/trainer removes his mask to reveal...

Sounds like somebody's been watching Pulp Fiction again.  Can't say I blame ya though.

Hopefully Darby Allin has a showcase on this. 

If you think who's on the roster they've not announced, there's Allin, Jimmy Havoc, Jungle Boy, Allie... Bea Priestly, but they went out of their way to say she wouldn't be on until the Jacksonville show.

They need to show these dudes picking their numbers on Road to Double or Nothing.  I hate that WWE did away with that.  

I'm going to be disappointed if MJF doesn't buy #21 and have it backfire on him badly.
