  1. "When I say 'MI, y'all say 'SU!'"

  2. I listed a few weeks ago all the missteps and straight up boneheaded twists and turns the Cody/Shaq "program" has taken. Here is the unabridged, revised, updated version if you're keeping score! Jade shows up and says Shaq wants Cody. No history, no backstory, nobody knows who Jade is or why Shaq wants to fight Cody. Brandi shows up with a code switching promo. Jade jumps Brandi and Red Velvet saves. This may have happened more than once? Sitdown interview with Brandi and Shaq where Shaq spends more time building Jade vs Brandi than anything else for some reason, and I don't think he mentioned wanting to fight Cody at all. Brandi is kind of an asshole to Shaq because Tony didn't give her as much props as Shaq. She throws a conspicuous water on him and he makes a Mr. Ferley face. Brandi is pregnant and now cannot wrestle. Jade goes after Cody in the Waiting Room and demands...something? An opponent for herself? An answer to the Shaq challenge that really kinda didn't happen? Somewhere in here, somebody realizes this match, clearly set for a PPV, can't take place on the weekend of the PPV because Shaq has broadcasting commitments for the NBA All Star Game. Shaq does a cringeworthy, embarrassing promo on NBA on TNT. Seriously, don't ever keep kayfabe in real life. This would be like Giancarlo Esposito being interviewed on Jimmy Fallon or something, and stopping in the middle of the interview to cut a promo on Walter White. Fucking embarrassing. AEW airs a Jade training video. No wrestling is shown. Just Jade lifting weights, HANGIN' & BANGIN' like it's 1988 WWF and "this person is big and strong so they must be a good wrestler" is still a thing. Nathan Jones says hi. AEW airs another Jade training video. This time, she's shooting baskets while Shaq watches. Shaq joins in for one or two shots. Because nothing promotes to wrestling fans that two people have never wrestled can actually wrestle like showing them playing basketball. This thing has been so utterly aimless and dumb that it's amazingly fitting they screwed up the scheduling for what was clearly a PPV bout and it's going to air on free TV. This shit has been bonkers, a meandering, confounding embarrassment from the start.

  7. Made it 24 straight hours with power so that's good. Still no water. Internet went out, but at least we have our phones and they're actually working. Ready for a normal weekend.

  8. Ah right, thanks, wouldn’t have got that. I was wrong there then, that actually fits for him. I still kinda feel Cage basically takes cool spots of better wrestlers without really taking away what makes those wrestlers good. I’d kind of be more explicit about his whole GMSI thing and make it his weakness, he’s this machine who can wreck you but he has no strategy other than throwing bombs. You can also run an arc where Taz is coaching him to improve if you want to build up to a title shot or whatever. Or even better you turn him into a complete video game wrestler and have Taz control him from ringside. Shouting out each move before he does it, which he does complete with character specific taunts from other guys, spamming taunts while his opponent is down to build up to a finisher, missing pin combos because Taz didn’t shout pin early enough during the move.

  9. Deeb was absolutely Bret Hart in thst match. I was always high on her- but how she worked that match captivated me more than any match I've seen in the last 5 years. I want more of that kind of Deeb. She worked that headlock and told a story just like Bret.

  11. I swear, he's Mr. Pearson from RDR2 I forgot to mention: "Shaq insults Cody, calls him a girl. In 2021. Because the only thing dumber than misogynistic insults is misogynistic insults while you're teaming with a woman."

  12. The best part, for me, is as I was watching this week and had missed a few Dynamites over the last little while, I thought "I must have missed a little bit of the storyline build-up to this match" then reading this list...No, I saw them all. Every segment. I think my favourite part of the entire feud was the NBA on TNT when Shaq challenged Cody on the NBA on TNT set, and the other guys started kind of laughing, then Shaq said his move was the Black Tornado and they were flat-out laughing then he smacked the plexiglass a couple times and they pretended to get angry and Shaq starts smiling then makes an angry face. Oh man, the extended clip is even better as Barkley says "That ain't no tornado, more like the wind blowing!" and Shaq pretends like he's going to fight Barkley but smiles the whole time as Barkley waves him away saying "Covid rules!" (as in, 'get away from me, social distancing," not like he's cheering for the thing!) I don't think this will get to the levels of Robocop/Chucky in WCW, but it could be along the lines of Jeremy Piven and Summerfest. I can't wait.

  13. The one thing missing from [email protected] Supportreport is that these things sometimes happened weeks apart to the extent people legitimately thought the whole angle had been dropped a couple of different times.

  16. So AEW series 3 figures came in the mail today and holy crap the Orange and Darby ones alone are next-level stuff. Even if you don't care for them if you see the figures you'll likely go "Okay, those look great." And looking at even Young Bucks this version of them smokes series 1 and makes me glad I didn't bother with the initial ones. Just really great figures all-around though I didn't get Pac for some reason. Might circle back and get him but don't know if it's worth paying double for him. Oh, and for @D.Z I know you like Riho and want to say that her figure looks great if you're interested. Face is a tad bit off but they got everything else right.

  20. I still think teaming Shaq and Cody would have made more sense. They could always add Jade as a third if that is the end goal. That way you don’t split your audience for no real reason and could get some heels more exposure in the process.

  24. Seamlessly weaving the simultaneous unbeaten streak and barbed wire match discussions together. Nicely done - championship caliber posting right here. And Stop The Matsunaga was sooooo good. Always love the angle where the heel gets desperate and brings out the maniacal cleaner against the baby faces, but then can’t put the genie back in the bottle.

  26. SPEAKING OF POINTLESS! Goldberg came in and was given the WWE Championship because... fuck Bray Wyatt, I guess? I mean, it's not like they had a years long feud simmering with Wyatt and the challenger Braun Strowman. And it's not like they had an absolutely dynamite new character in the form of The Fiend - a version of Bray turned up to 20 on a 10 point scale, who could rival (or even outrank) Braun's power. And it's not like they could have used the feud to put over either guy as an absolute S-tier character. Nah, instead let's have a match with a guy who's recently very nearly killed one of our oldest stars and a big galoot who knows how to do 3 moves. Well, at least this is short. *Braun turned on his zero damage cheat* Spear Spear Spear Spear Jackhammer. *NOT VERY EFFECTIVE* Powerslam Powerslam Powerslam. *IT'S SUPER EFFECTIVE!* Goldie has fainted! Braun has earned you 350 Pokecoins! OH? Braun is evolving! BRAUN IS NOW CHAMPBRAUN! For the record, it's remarkable that after less than ~200 lifetime matches or so, Braun Strowman won the Universal Championship. It's also notable that he wouldn't have sniffed this title if Roman Reigns, who was originally scheduled for this spot, hadn't told Vince to go fuck himself because he'd just gotten over fucking LEUKEMIA and this wasn't worth it. I'm 90% sure Roman has a foot out of the door in WWE and he's going to be appearing in a few more major movies as soon as productions start up again. Frankly, that's a good thing. Get out before you get CTE, and leave the Strowman's of the world to get concussed by 60 year-olds who can't do their moves any more. … Meanwhile, Gronkowski and Mojo punk out R Truth and Mojo wins the 24/7 title by betraying his friend. This was a better match than the one that preceded it.

  27. Kingston can make you care about whatever angle he's in on whatever part of the card the angle's in. He's legitimately a great talent and should have had a better career than he's had.

  31. I don't want to see a dude spike himself in his own stomach or anything, but the idea behind it - heels bring in a monster to do their bidding, but the monster turns on them and one face gets over by stepping up and ending the destruction - is pretty great.

  33. ok, 1995 Hulk Hogan in a cinematic "Dungeon of Doom" match would be the EXACT level of stupid corniness that i would have loved, both then and now. It's the Hogan-Kevin Sullivan feud ender we never got.
