I still love that out of all the star power on the show he thought Luther and John Silver were the best. Really fun to watch with a newbie with an open mind and an open heart

Your friend sounds bald.

Chris Jericho ain't winning the title folks. And even if Punk isn't ready for All Out, you have 3 and 1/2 weeks to elevate someone to take on Moxley. That's more than enough time. 

Shit, if Brody wins tonight, which I kinda expect him to, run back Brody vs Mox.

Brody vs Mox

That was a pretty average match and pretty much the only disappointing one I can think of from Mox the past few months. They would need a massive match that isn't in the works yet to do the heavy lifting in selling the ppv if this is the direction they go.

MJF wins a casino whatever to get a title shot by being an unannounced joker, takes the title off Kingston the same night he wins it. Nuclear heat

Legit 1970s Puerto Rico riot heat.

Even if Jericho doesn't win the belt, I expect a schmoz or shenanigans to lead to another Jericho vs Mox match at All Out, unless Punk's back

Jesus fuck, that was a great main event.   Welcome back, CM Punk.

Jericho was in such great shape!  I thought for sure that was it after the turnbuckle spot and the Judas Effect.

Miro was all Get Thee Behind Me, Jezebel! when Julia tried to seduce him into joining the Black Side.  I marked.

Well, now there are four Coffin Matches that I have ever enjoyed and Darby Allin has been in two of them.  Mil Muertes was in the other two.  The only logical progression is to book a Coffin Match between Darby and Mil Muertes.

Allright!  Pro Wrestling!  Darby Allin is starting it off.  Will Brodie King crush him again?  Probably.  OH!  I see there will be BLOOD!  YES!  This match fucking rules already.  JESUS!  THAT'S A LOT OF BLOOD!  Allin is bumping like Darby Allin.  Brodie is a big dude, chockfull of blood!  Picture in picture is construction time for Brodie King.  The picture goes big and King misses Allin on the table!  SABU!  JAKE THE SNAKE!  Buddy Matthews is fucking awesome.  CANNONBALL THROUGH THE TABLE!  I knew STING was going to be in the coffin!  I'm psychic!  Is STING turning to the House of Black?  Well, that was a fun total trainwreck.  They booked the holy fuck out of that.  Darby Allin rules.  Brodie King RULES.  DRAGON LEE!  AWESOME!  It's RUSH!  And ANDRADE!  It's PENTA!  It's REY FENIX!  Fenix is fucking spectacular.  This match needs blood.  EVERY MATCH NEEDS BLOOD TONIGHT!  This match is also insane.  The crowd is fucking MOLTEN.  That match was fucking great.  PENTA should have wrestled without his mask to save his brother but it IS Lucha Libre and there are rules you don't break, so I will live with it.  Soooo KENNY OMEGA is back?  Awww, Anthony Henry gets murdered by Luchasaurus.  OH NO!  Luchasaurus is the new Wardlow!  I await a new class action lawsuit by Smart Mark Sterling!  Julia tries to seduce Miro with the POWER OF THE HOUSE OF BLACK!  I await Miro beating the life out of Buddy Matthews to set up the ultimate HOSS BATTLE as Miro goes through Brodie King.  Anna JAS is fun.  I super dig Daniel Garcia, the Dragonslayer.  Aaron Solo is going to get murdered by Ricky Starks.  COLE KARTER SIGHTING!  So Minnesota has the best crowds in the NORTH!  Ricky Starks eventually murders Aaron Solo.  Ricky Starks uses sheer will of BABYFACENESS to get over a feud with the fucking FACTORY.  So Ricky Starks is going to be a superstar.  The TRUSTBUSTERS!  I assume this will be on Rampage?  Will Sonny Kiss be there?  (oh Kiss will be there to be crushed by Parker Boudreaux).  Madison Rayne is going to get murdered by Jade Cargill.  Rayne gets in some offense.  Cargill sells it kind of awkwardly on the floor.  Jade crushes Rayne in picture in picture.  This match is pretty ugly which is weird for a match with two such stunning ladies in it.  I liked the idea of what they were trying to do, it just they fucked everything up.  Hey!  It's ATHENA!  That will be good.  AWESOME!  ASS BOYS vs BEARDHAUSEN!  ERIK REDBEARD IS BACK!  HOLY SHIT!  DANIELSON vs GARCIA, 2 out of 3 FALLS!  It's our MAIN EVENT!  Feels big!  Mox and Jericho are both over in Minnesota.  Jericho is fucking channeling Negro Navarro.  Well this is fun.  BLOOD!  MOX always delivers.  This match is good.  GREAT Boston Crab by Jericho, as he is stretching Moxley like he said he would.  Mox is fucking great selling it.  GREAT nearfall on a Code Breaker.  JERICHO BRINGS THE BLOOD!  AWESOME!  BULLDOG CHOKE!  BLOOD IS STREAMING DOWN JERICHO'S FACE!  AWWWESOME!  That was fucking GREAT.  CM PUNK!  WHAT THE FUCK?  Well, that show ended well.  AEW RULES THE MOTHERFUCKING FUCKING MOTHERFUCKING WORLD!

Bold Prediction: Jericho's winning the belt tonight. 

Bolder Prediction: Jericho -> Kingston -> MJF

The thing about bold predictions is; they're often incorrect.

Holy fucking shit that post match angle was FANTASTIC. Octopus got his money's worth on that pop alone. Ross sounded sincerely enthusiastic for the first time I can remember in ages. Awesome opener and main event. Tornado was a bit sloppy but fun and effective. Thought most everything in the middle was a massive drop off and just stunk. That happens too often lately, hot opener, boring middle section, good main event.

I came in a half hour late so gotta go back and watch both the Coffin Match and the Tornado Tag now. This felt like A LOT of people walking up on other people and cutting a promo. Then there was a very long main event where they basically killed off the Walls of Jericho forever by having Moxley lay in it through the entire PnP. But shit, that was a lot of blood! Jericho went full Smoky Mountain Tag Title bladejob for basically no reason right at the end. It was great.

When they announced a "lucha rules" match between LFI and the Lucha Bros I assumed it was going to be 2/3 falls or at least have leaving the ring count as a tag. Changing it up to a "Tornado Tag" or whatever name they wanted to use as a NHB match right after a coffin match which had pretty much the same stipulation made it less interesting.

The main event was the best I've seen Jericho look in a long time. I was kind of hoping he'd use his first WCW theme song though. Post-match angle ruled.

Yeah, it was two good fun matches and then a bunch of stuff to advance storylines and then a fucking GREAT main event.  RAW had SIX good matches Monday, but nothing approaching the first two and main event.  I declare this week a TIE.

Thing from the main event (well one of the many things) I like is that unlike a lot of flippy floppy AEW style matchups, that Jericho and Moxley weren't quick on the transition late in the match between painful holds. you got the feeling that they were legitimately fighting for position through exhaustion.

And in AEW, Red Means Green. Blood Sucking Freaks, Tough-guy wrestling, Sports Entertainment, all of you... ARE YOU NOT ENTERTAINED!

 

I do think they telegraphed that Judas Effect kickout immediately after it was hit by saying "NO ONE HAS EVER KICKED OUT OF IT". They should have figured a way to work it into conversation a minute or so earlier.

Think the Sting and HoB shenanigans brought down the coffin match and that the straight up brawl they had a couple weeks ago was better. Was awesome up to the bullshit tho. Darby is incredible. Here's hoping King can have good matches with somebody other than Darby.

That ending was visually incredible, though, with the chain and Brody's selling/body language/perfect drop and spin into the coffin which slammed shut on it's own. Like, you could do take after take of that and never have it look as fucking GREAT as it did

Oh yeah, they overbooked the fuck out of that coffin match, but it was a coffin match and you had to get so that Allin gets his win back and also keeps the angle going.  They need to actually link Miro with STING and Allin now.

Definitely a strong finish but man it felt like the timing on all the sting and Malakai stuff was way off. Took me out for a minute, which is disappointing because Stinger always adds to matches.
