  3. What blows me away about Riho is how she gets herself over in every match. The first three minutes of a Riho match usually involve the crowd not knowing how to react to a sub-100-lber's offense. The last three minutes tend to be the loudest reactions of the night. It's some of the most meaningful Underdog Pro Wrestling to happen on modern national stage.

  4. I'm going to state an uncomfortable truth here. Adam Page is not a drinker. He sips his beers like a polite high school girlfriend who is hanging out with your "field party" crew for the first time and is quite frankly concerned that you would associate with them.

  5. Yup. I'm also really tired of Ross comparing guys to the wrestlers of yesteryear. Once is fine but he does it every single time. Darby Allin is just like Jeff Hardy because both are, I suppose, skinny white, face-painted daredevils. Adam Page is Steve Austin. I got so tired of his schtick watching NJPW on AXS. YES JIM GOTO IS JUST LIKE BRET HART PLEASE TELL ME AGAIN. Holy fuck. And you know he couldn't resist getting some release for his perennial Steve Williams hardon, comparing Cobb to Dr. Death. Promoting every wrestler like he's the next somebody else does them all such a disserv

  8. They've been building Nyla back up since she lost the title. That was easily the best women's match in the promotion to date. Better than the title decider, which was a fine match performed to nuclear heat. Tonight's match was significantly better in-ring and had a similar reaction. Awesome. Riho was fantastic in her selling and some of the creative spots. The Omega move exchange was a really nice idea that added greatly and ratcheted up after that series. Tag title match was really fucking good pro wrestling. A kind of match I've been hoping to see more of. More storytelling, less move s

  9. The Bellas certainly deserve to be in more than Torrie Wilson, but I don't remember this much venom being sent her way. It's weird that people transfer their hatred for the Johnny Ace Diva Search Era to the Bellas. It's like the Randy Orton hate in that it seems to be based on what they represent rather than anything they've actually done. Nikki busted her ass to improve in the ring, and in the process kept up with the women referred to on this board as some of the best women's wrestlers in the world.

  13. Best episode of Dynamite in its short lifetime. Probably the best episode of TV wrestling I’ve watched in a long time. Also for a small market town, Cedar Park felt like it was Baltimore in the 80’s. Whoever directed this should walk out before the end of the night, and take a bow.

  14. I remember a few years back someone pointing out that real progress isn't having a face with an LGBTQ+ gimmick, it's having an LGBTQ+ wrestler that doesn't have that as their gimmick. I think Nyla's a good example of that. And, yes, I also shudder to think what WWE would do with her.

  15. It's like CM Punk said 6 yrs ago about the part timers coming in. 50+ yr old Goldberg comes and takes up a main spot that someone else could have filled and made it much more interesting.

  20. The show was incredibly great and AEW is firing on all cylinders. I really hope this eventually leads to bigger ratings and consistently fuller arenas but as it is they're in a great spot. One big takeaway I got from the Riho/Nyla match was that it felt unexpected in that if she was going to lose the title it would be at the PPV. I was in a state of shock at first that a PPV-quality match would happen with that result on free TV. But that quickly wore off and we were just so incredibly happy for Nyla, my wife especially who is such a huge fan of hers. What's cool is that Nyla is the f

  21. Satanico, Mephisto, & Averno vs Ultimo Guerrero, Mascara Magica, Rey Bucanero, & Tarzan Boy - Infierno en el Ring. I get so pumped up from this. El Satanico comes off like such a hero. MS1 vs Sangre Chicana. Mom at ringside. @The Natural & @Eivion already posted the link, but HOLY DEMON ARMY VS MISAWA AND KOBASHI. Kenta Kobashi crawling at the end is such a legendary moment.

  27. 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

  31. So I had a wrestling dream a bit ago. We were at a fever-dream carnival and at the end of the night there was supposed to be a wrestling match featuring the Honkey Tonk Man. So we walked to this stage with a curtain and when it rose up it was just a killed jobber with pieces of a busted guitar laying around. That's it, shows over. The strange thing is apparently this was the funniest GD thing I ever saw because I was laughing so hard it woke me up. Then I couldn't stop laughing and my wife woke up and was wondering what the hell was wrong with me and what was so funny. And it still makes

  32. Thought commentary was particularly strong on this one. They all sounded really genuinely invested in the women's title match.

  34. The Goldface/Amunet stuff on Flash this week, was some of the most fun writing the show has done in a while. Is Amunet the biggest heel on the show for slagging on "OK Computer"????? I really wish Goldface had a different name, because I keep wanting to call him Goldenface, and that is someone ENTIRELY different.

  36. Had a dream about wrestling (kind of) just there, after watching Dynamite. My band got offered a gig playing as a backing band for Darby Allin. We didn’t practice or listen to any of his songs but when we went on stage he said “just wing it, all the songs are just C and D chords”. And also, I was naked on stage. Gotta love a good anxiety / wrestling dream.

  37. The Outsider is slowing turning into an extended episode of The Night Stalker and it's great. Holly Gibney is Karl Kolchack with savant syndrome. I find her Holmes-eque "remove the absurd and whatever facts are left, however outlandish, must be true" acceptance of the nature of the Outsider to be very refreshing. Proper research and deductive reasoning allows the fantastic to pass the sniff test of reasonable skepticism. If it walks and talks and acts like a boogeyman, it's a boogeyman.

  38. Hope that news is true. Liger is a given for any pro wrestling HoF. The Bellas aren't a bad pick for women. They left WWE on good terms with it pretty much being known they were coming back at some point. For the main roster technically they were. The whole GiveDivasaChance thing started because of them, and they were the leading heels for 3/4 NXT Horsewomen when they came up.

  47. Apparently Batista & Taker had been going in on the assumption that they would be going on last (or close to it) and would have a whole bunch of match time. Then right before the show they found out they were going on 5th from top and had much less. So they cut all the rest spots out of their match plan and decided to go super balls out and steal the show.
