It's funny that their mindset seems to be "No one will be watching, put on actual wrestling." Hope Gulak gets more than a minute.

Gulak's minute of ring time will add to the 24 previous minutes of wrestling that are most likely on this two hour show.

The only question I have is, is Shinsuke getting to actually speak English or is this just more of that Tajiri bullshit. Because obviously I haven't been watching all that close.

He isn't Tozawa fluent but he is fluent in English. Still not sure I would trust him on commentary so I'm guessing he only says so much.

A couple of years ago, Meltzer claimed that Nak’s English was much better than it seemed on tv.  Dave thought Shinsuke was intentionally downplaying how well he spoke English.

That Charlotte Flair/Toni Storm match was pretty good.  They kept teasing Storm's finisher so I thought they were JAKKING AEW HOUSE STYLE!  But then Flair wins with a pinfall.  Subversive.

I watched this for the first time I’ve watched a main WWE show since the Bret Hart RAW I think. I don’t think I’d ever watched a Smackdown being a WCW fan who didn’t get UPN. I’d probably watch now but I usually work Friday nights.

The Paul Heyman angle looked pretty good. My heart jumped a little when I seen the WCW footage. 

What I really couldn’t believe was the technology lol! One guy’s entrance cost more than an hour’s worth of TV that I grew up watching on Sundays.
