A quick win over Colton Gunn is sure to shoot him up the rankings. This is what they've been waiting for.

Do you really want to fuck with the hottest act in wrestling for this?

I mean I get where you're coming from, but if the end result is Hook vs. Bryan Danielson - I think it may be worth the sacrifice.

Late to the party. Ordered the replay on Monday (avoided social media for two days) and just finished it.

First PPV I ordered in 20 years and worth every cent. Can’t remember an event where I was invested in every match. My least favourite match was the battle royal and even that was memorable.

Last time a main eventer at a Wrestlemania appeared in another company within 6 months? Yeah DB is a big get. Punk too. They got a months of matches to make up.  Just months. So many angles and possibilities. 

The closest instance I can think of is Nash working Undertaker at Mania 13 March 31st 1996 and then showing up on Nitro June 10th. Hasn't happened often.

Good recall - and that was huge then.  And huge today too.

You won't come up with too many recent examples because there hasn't been a major company for anyone to jump to for most of the last 20 years.

Other than Nash, the biggest examples in the same vein are Bret going from Survivor Series main event to WCW in less than a month, and in the inverse, Benoit winning the WCW title at Souled out and being Raw a week later.

Angle was in a world title match (not the main event) at Mania and was in TNA by the end of that year. Not as huge, but it was a big deal for TNA to have him. Biggest example of this I can think about between WCW ending and now.

Jeff Hardy also went frown SummerSlam main event to TNA by January of the next year.

And the Four Horsewomen. 

I would not be stunned if three of the four (Charlotte, Sasha, and Bayley) end up in AEW at some point within the next few years.

Didn’t get to watch live, but saw the whole show late last night.

Rewatched Punk/Darby this morning and enjoyed it more the 2nd time around. As good as anything else on the card in my opinion and that’s a big compliment from me because I loved the tag match and the main event.

Punk had the most ridiculous face when he was applying the abdominal stretch. Loved it. Can’t wait for the inevitable down the line heel run where that’s all he does every match.

Also, no more top rope Canadian destroyers plz. That slow motion replay made me cringe.

Danielson is going to be amazing and I love him, but we all know he’s going to land on his head too much here in the next few months.

While describing his love of Vince McMahon in his post-show media availability, Bryan said Vince could be too protective of him. And then went on to talk about his love of the physicality of wrestling. He seems eager, if not to fulfil your exact prediction, to really get hot and heavy in there. 

Not sure how worried I should be. But, ya know...

I hope Bryan goes the right way for his health and turns into AEWs strong style guy as opposed to the head drop guy.

Also they don't need to rush him to the title.

- One on One with Adam Cole "All Out was meant to be MY night!"

- Tag with Christian to take on the Bucks on a big Dynamite/Rampage after they beat him down during/after the Cole match.

- Tag with Christian to take on the Good Bros on a hyped Impact or Impact PPV

- One on One with Adam Cole. No interference.

That should allow plenty of time to bring back Adam Page and build up his world title win, probably at Revolution.

Then Bryan finally gets to take on Omega in a #1 contenders match at Double or Nothing and you can build to Adam Page vs Bryan Danielson in a massive face/face main event at All Out next year.

The question is - When does Punk v Danielson happen?

Yeah that quote scared me a little. 

Me too. Still remember Daniel Bryan taking fucking Half Nelson Suplexes from Luke Harper when he returned from 2014 neck surgery in 2015. Bryan was only there four months before going back on the shelf.

This was my literal first time watching AEW, and came away pretty impressed. My MOTN was Punk/Darby with Kingston/Miro as a runner up. I even came out liking *both* a Young Bucks match AND a Kenny Omega match, which I never thought I'd say. It helps that the main event felt more like a big time Christian match than a big time Kenny match, other than the ridiculous stupid table spot in the first 3 minutes. Also, as a first time viewer, I never felt lost thanks to the very good commentary(Which honestly reminded me of myself and Brad Stutts in the old CWF days). Going to c&p my overall thoughts from my thread on Twitter.

So I came away from All Out feeling like I want to tune in to the next show, and that is genuinely the most effusive praise I can give to any wrestling show these days. It had nothing to do with the returns or surprises, but the overall production and variety.

I never felt like I watched the same match twice, and a lot of my hesitation to ever watch AEW was proven false, and I'm not afraid to admit that. Do I like all of it, or all of the acts? No, and there are still things that I found to be p dumb, but that is the territory now.

Was this the best show ever? No it wasn't and I'm not having that conversation. However, I'd rank it with Bash at the Beach 94 and 96, and Wrestlemania XIV as being among the most significant if they continue the momentum.

Those shows were big breakthrough events that signified that they were about to take over as the top brand, and All Out felt like that. Other things like production and commentary I already mentioned, and it's those little things that I look for.

In short, AEW did their job and made me want to give a second viewing, and that should always be the goal.

No clue on that last part, but Punk is on the record on multiple podcasts/media interviews as wanting to tag with Danielson against the Young Bucks, so I assume that happens sooner rather than later.

I still think they should do my massive 14 man tag idea at Grand Slam. Just devote the entire last hour of the show to that match, fuck it.
