So, Nyla should absolutely 100% switch her finish from the Batista Bomb to that diving knee to the draped opponent, right? Poor Riho looked like she hit her neck and head whipping down from the aftermath of that. It gets a huge pop every time. It's the best looking thing Nyla has in her arsenal. Just win with that! Pull a Hangman and switch the ol' finish.

It is, but like you said it looks absolutely dangerous. I remember when she hit that at Fyter Fest, and that woke up the fans during that match.

Without having seen it, not a big fan of necks snapping against the ropes, given the number of injuries/deaths that has caused. If it's safe but looks deadly, more power to them.

Totally but it's generally not a thing that happens to the recipient. Here's Riho taking the same move without the whiplash grossness:

I can't find footage of the move from the title switch. Would be even cooler if it could be a total springboard move to show off the hops. She's done it or other springboard moves so it's not out of the realm of possibility.

That's too contrived to be a finisher.... but then I remember AEW is ran by The Young Bucks.

I fucking died at the opening. This is one of those things where I feel like something has been made for me. Since Frozen 2 came out my daughter and I keep riffing on "Into the Unknown," whether it's singing it at weird times or just doing the "AHH AH AHH AHHHH." I'll have to show her this tomorrow.

Could they run a Caster Semenya angle with Nyla and Britt trying to push the fictitious board of directors to put her through ridiculous standards and testing to ensure she's meeting the necessary testosterone angles to remain the champ?

I feel like if its done with the appropriate respect shown, it puts huge heat on Britt and sympathy for Nyla. On the other hand, one transphobic audience cheering for Britt and it's super messed up.

One of the all-time worst fantasy booking ideas in the history of DVDVR.

That's an incredibly awful idea.  MOVING ON...

So with Double or Nothing sales selling the way they are I wonder if it was a good idea to not do Starrcast.  It seems like that's not happening which is a shame because for a big event they could use something like that.  And I say that after admitting that having one for Full Gear last year wasn't smart due to location and size of it all.  But unless there was a venue issue having it again at Ceasars is the smart move.  Hopefully they save these events for the bigger shows like DoN or All Out and maybe do smaller meet and greet style events for the other PPVs.

With the way Yuka won her return match, she might get the title shot at Revolution. Nyla is going to need a couple of more smaller contenders(and dazzling strong lady showcases) before she graduates back to the bigger ladies.

I don't know, act of God could be interesting. Does AEW have the special effects budget to have Wardlaw be struck by lightning?

With Khan money, anything is possible!

They could just do a mid 90’s WWF, and tape the match early so you can add the lighting bolt effects later.

On the radio show Dave casually mentioned that starrcast 2 in Vegas lost money last year. I assumed that Baltimore wasn’t a big success because the show wasn’t sold out and things had kind of run their course, but I always assumed last year in Vegas was a success because of all the hype and commotion. 
 

After losing money twice, this show not having off the charts demand, and with how Conrad said just doing the first one was a ridiculous amount of work, I can see why it isn’t happening. But they need to announce a bunch of meet and greets or something. 
 

Edit: Frankly I’m surprised they announced this show this early anyway. I thought for sure they would at least wait until after the ppv so they could give it their full attention right out of the gate. I’m bringing a friend, and he was asking about ticket prices and I was like they’re really fan friendly, they’ll post the seating chart a few days before it goes on sale. With the presale Thursday morning, on Wednesday afternoon I was like ok why haven’t they posted anything? Then it hits me, they have a live tv show to prepare for that night, and a ppv in two weeks. They don’t have time to be posting about something 3 1/2 months away. They didn’t post the seating chart on their site until Friday morning. So why put it up for sale so early?

Was AXS a common ticket site for DoN last year? I was surprised before buying my tickets that it wasn’t through Ticketmaster.

Anderson pulling the “Ric Flair promise to Sting” before the cage match? Arn’s fucking turning.

Conrad ran Starrcast into the ground by running four of them within a 16 month period. If they were losing money as well, it's definitely not worth the extra work for him and his staff.

Yeah, that's what I was referring to and it didn't surprise me.  Don't get me wrong, I absolutely loved whatever version of Starrcast we got in Baltimore as it allowed me to meet people I think the world of.  But you could tell it was being run into the ground with how relatively small-scale it was compared to the other ones.  And I'm still all for it coming back so long as it's done once or twice.  But hopefully they'll find a suitable replacement.

It should have been a once a year kind of deal. You could also tell how expensive that shit was to run based on how expensive it cost to get in. I wanted to go to the first Starrcast until I saw those prices. Fuck that noise.

Even if they can't do Starrcast, I do agree with Dave and Bryan that AEW should still do some kind of fan access event. It doesn't need to be anything huge, but do something to draw more fans in.

They did have a VIP package that sold out. I believe a meet & greet comes with it. But nothing for the general public.

I like you @RolandTHTG, so I'll just pretend someone else made that suggestion.
