AEW - AUG 2021


Recommended Posts

Regarding Julia Hart:

Sexism is of course unequivocally bad, and the rest of Max's rap definitely deserves some of the negative attention it's receiving, but I gotta stop short on infantalizing an actual adult woman. She can vote, smoke cigarettes, act in porn, fight in war etc. I'm pretty sure it's ok to heel on her in a wrestling promo. I say that independent of the line itself, which was (purely my opinion) more hackneyed than offensive (YMMV).

I may have missed some details, but Julia Hart usually sells Caster's shade with a look that is a lot more 'what an absolute bellend' than 'omg he embarassed me, I want to run and hide'. At the end of the day, Varsity Blondes are getting pushed and, let's face it, she may have potential but she doing alright for a green as grass 19 year old right?

Anyway this probably ends with Max Caster getting kicked in the bollocks - which may or may not be his cool fetish.

Will Hobbs' mother passed away, according to his Twitter account. I'm assuming that is why he was absent last week. 😟

Yeah I saw that. I’m glad his mom got to see him make it before she left this world.

Random thought but I'm honestly surprised they didn't put the Elite Squad jerseys up for sale on shopaew.com.  It seems like such a no-brainer that barring some legal reason with IPs would have sold quite well.  Heck, I probably would have gotten one myself.

She still cannot purchase alcohol. 

I'm still baffled as to how "act in porn" and "smoke cigarettes" made the list of adult qualifications but "operate a motor vehicle" or "open a bank account" did not.

Same! I kept waiting for that PWTees text, like, "any second now..."

The main event of Dark 100 (King vs Dante w/Darius) was a little shorter than I expected, but it looks like it was the actual final match of a 4+ hour show and the fans looked pretty knackered. So going home early was probably smart. Eddie decided to remind us all that he started in Chikara by spending the first few exchanges flying around for Dante's good Lucha things.

It was interesting to hear how hot that crowd was for so much of the show, but during Lucha Bros vs Chaos Project, well... They like Serpentico's stuff with both Fenic and Penta, but when Luther was in there, actual pin drop silence. Poor guy.

Yeah but that's more because America is weird than anything to do with her. She can buy all the booze she wants in Canada, and basically anywhere else that isn't a Muslim country.

I see we are avoiding the porn star qualifier.

She can purchase alcohol in Canada! She actually could've purchase alcohol in Quebec last year lol #freedom

Note to self.  The true measure of adulthood is not being able to drive a car or make your own money.  It has something to do with either drinking beer or appearing in porn.  Maybe both.  Cigarettes may also be a factor.

I love you guys like brothers, so I will lay off the social justice warrior stuff and just agree to disagree.

However, I will need you all to identify yourselves by board tag if you ever show up at my house to ask my daughter out so that I don't end up clubbing an innocent man to death with a 4x4.

Especially you fucking Canadians.

Can’t you let love be love? Look at the passion Dexter Lumis displays.

TK is now claiming he didn’t know about the Caster rap, which I find unlikely for a number of reasons. Regardless, I’m glad it seems that he’s not throwing Caster under the bus. Can’t fault a guy for pushing the envelope too far when that’s what you’ve explicitly been encouraging him to do.

My daughter would be involved so no, I cannot let love be love.  Assbeatings must happen.  If it is any consolation, I would try my best not to make it personal.

Yeah I find it hard to believe that TK had no idea what Caster would say, but I am also glad Max wasn't punished for doing something that bookers and producers told him to do.  Stuff like that rarely happens without someone signing off on it.

Ha, just saw your edit now! Real answer: I had initially typed those and then realized you can do them at 16, so I excised it in the interest of accuracy. Fake answer: they're just not as fun

I can believe that Caster sends the rap to Tony Khan for verification and I can also believe that Tony Khan has no clue what the Duke Lacrosse reference was.  At least the Simone Biles thing is so recent even the most wrestling bubble person gets this

Like I have said if this is all about "getting heat" then the next time Caster tries this rap Pillman and Garrison should beat their ass before they hit the ring.  Unfortunately from watching the 2 or 3 times they have been involved, it seems like Julia hart is the only one really upset at things.  Hell the Blondes wasn't even paying attention to the rap from the looks of it.

Apparently I also made the shit list and I thought I was the politically correct leftist social justice tyrant of this thread forcing you all to wear masks, be kind to one another under penalty of death, and surrender your firearms to the government.
