Yeah, they really shouldn’t expect anybody to watch that bte nonsense.  I don’t think I’m alone in loving Dynamite and hating bte.

Would've been much cooler PR if Brandi had just flat out admitted failure and that this is fully proof that they listen to their audience.  Not to say in her defensive way she didn’t say as much.  I like Brandi but did not dig that interview.  Alvarez certainly tried.

I love BTE and can separate it from what goes on Dynamite. For the most part, BTE takes shit from Dynamite and riffs on them, but you don't need to pay attention to it. I just like all of the inside jokes and gags like Merch Freak, DO YA?!, BTE mailbag, etc.

There's storylines on BTE that carry over to Dynamite? Who the hell thought that was a good idea? Does BTE get 800k views a week? 

Why would they do that?

No, there aren't storylines on BTE that carry over to Dynamite.

The only real story that carried over from BTE were the initial stages of MJF being the Starscream to Cody’s Megatron. All prior to the launch of Dynamite.

Didn't the Adam Page thing start on BTE?

That’s true, I had forgotten that started there.

It may have started there, but to the unknowing, you'd think it started on Dynamite. The one time they kinda fucked up was for a two week period where Page left the Elite, Excalibur referenced it, and then the next week they retconned it and it turned into Page having issues with the Elite. Since then, they've played up Page's record, losing big matches, and being distrustful of the Elite and all of that has happened on Dynamite.

They've done a better job of separating BTE and just making that something where they fuck around and riff on whatever happened on Dynamite.

Meanwhile, over on Dark, Riho is outshined by Shoko Nakajima.

Dark’s been really good. It’s not just a show where indie wrestlers get free reign to go buckwild anymore. It’s a genuine weekend wrestling show(on a weekday) that has extra angle advancements that didn’t make it on Dynamite. Also maybe I was wrong about Taz. He’s been really good, and restrained.

Yeah, Nakajima brought it. She totally redeemed herself from her previous AEW performance.

Dark Order vs Stunt & Boy was a really good match too.

That Shida match with Cassandra Golden wasn’t half bad. This will sound like a weird compliment, but I’ll say it. Golden wrestles like a woman’s version of Roadblock. Basically sloppy big woman wrestler, but has a potential to be molded into something if she isn’t given up on. I think she has a lot of potential. Not enough big women in wrestling today outside of Nyla, and Reina Gonzalez over at NXT who I don’t believe is used much.

They should call her back to be used as enhancement talent to give her more TV experience, and when she’s ready do something with her.

A webcomic that has absolutely nothing to do with pro wrestling that I look at just made a subtle Orange Cassidy reference in the subtext.  

 

As for Golden, hopefully Cody remembers what Dusty did for Bubba early in his career- you don't use someone that big as a jobber, you have them be muscle for someone while squashing folks to get experience and build them up.  Maybe stick her with Britt?

That's a spot on comparison. I actually would be kinda into her using the rope-assisted backflip (moonsault?) from the apron

They finally got a desk. I’ve been begging them for months to get one. Now they got to get one that doesn’t look like it came from a thrift store.

How are 6mans and 8mans dealt with in overall records? For example Penta & Fenix are 0-1 as a tag team in this week's rankings, but were on the winning side of the 8man tag last week.

That record will come up the next time they're in a trios or 8 man tag match.

Their roster page lists their overall record first, with it broken down by singles, tag, six-man. Not sure about 8-man tags.

Watched the Riho/Nakajima match, and that was rocking. Not as good as Riho/Rose tonight, but another strong piece of evidence that Riho is best wrestler in the company

Got my double or nothing tix. Can’t wait! Now they just need to post those sweet, sweet California dates leading up to don.

JR was saying on his latest podcast that they're looking for athletic big guys. Cobb of course is a move in that direction, even though he's not the tallest dude.

He also said re: Cornette's vocal criticism, with Conrad specifically bringing up the "All Petite Wrestling" thing: "He's very set in his ways. He knows what he likes. He knows how wrestling, in his view, should be positioned. And I'm not disagreeing with that. It's just that sometimes the message gets a little bit, I think, coarse, very overly-generalized. You know, we know what we have, we know what we need. I think basically Corny's pointing out the obvious. He's not providing any information that I've seen that's new and revolutionary. It's the same thing that many of us say behind the scenes."

Coming (hopefully) soon to AEW: Big meaty men, bumpin' meat!

As long as these aren’t Giant Gonzalez types, that can do three hour nerve holds.
