  1. Man, I dunno. When MJF was berating his family and he came out and smiled for the fans on the ramp for what felt like 5 minutes instead of just beating the dude’s ass, that was a degree of “not getting pro wrestling” that just seems like one of those things you either have or don’t. Maybe (hopefully) it’s just “not getting being a babyface”.
  2. You may be right. I was looking to see if Giant faced Renegade for the WCW or TV titles in 95 (nope) and if Rousey faced any rookies (nope). But hey, David Arquette pinned Eric Bischoff when he won the WCW title
  3. Someone’s lobbying Johnny Ace for their old job back. What is Sean Alex Riley O’Jindrak doing in the Thunderdome?!
  4. How do I get Black and King vs Butcher and Blade slapping meat in the grimiest environment possible. Like, an armory in Indiana two matches after a death match. Need that ASAP.
  5. One must throw all established laws of AEW nature out the window during a Cody segment. The Codyverse has its own internal logic.
  6. Also, sign me up for the AHFO Succession storyline. Blade is Tom.
  7. Max got me this week. Popped big for both the gory self mutilation and Starrcade 97 (in DC!) lines.
  8. I loved the bookends on this show. Both the opener and the main event had that sense of warm joy in them that I just love about this company. If you can't smile at OC and Statlander's nonsense, Sting flying around like a maniac or Anthony Bowens's amazing 1980's action move villain act, then I can't help you. So good. Crowd was great. Love the smaller venue in DC as opposed to running Capital One again.
  9. Vader was in WCW during the Nitro era? And DJ Ran does not appear to be all up in the area
  10. Perhaps they are working a gimmick where WALTER is trying to round up all of the new silly NXT gimmicks, only to be foiled by the recently signed tag team of Naito and Hornswoggle The Ingobernable Basterds
  11. We were sort of talking about this in the Dynamite thread, but for as logically sound and non-intelligence insulting as AEW’s booking is (long term, wins and losses matter, continuity matters)….when was the last time they featured a genuinely surprising result or twist? They did this in the beginning (Private Party over the Bucks being the obvious example), but man the road that these stories are taking seems a bit too tidy if you ask me. I’d like to see a curveball or three. Like Hangman’s arc was good. MJF/Punk/Wardlow is good. Bucks/UE split is good. But as sound as it all is, they are multi-month storylines that we know the ending to. Give me something totally out of left field every once in a while; Garcia over Sammy on Tuesday would have been a perfect example of mixing it up in a good way.
  12. To me, lights out doesn’t fit the Deeb and Shida characters. Blow this off with those two in the Lion’s Den
  13. Bron Breakker debuts and runs through the field, only to be dumped as a 5th to last out, leaving us with a final four of Roman, Brock, Baron Corbin and Seth Rollins
  14. Explains the Cowboy and Dick Murdoch mentions too
  15. I can't decide who the better hoss prospect is between Wardlow and Hobbs. Hobbs's bodyblock cutoff is unreal, he has snappier movements, has a better heel grimace. Wardlow is handsome as hell, has a pair of MDK finishes....shit, I love them both and they looked incredible tonight until the finishes.
  16. I can not get down with how this show started, with the WWE "parade of challengers interrupting a promo" trope. Then followed up with both Wardlow and Hobbs losing by slipping on banana peels in back to back segments. That was just awful if I'm honest. They really have something with Wardlow when he's getting 50/50 chants with CM Punk. I would have found a way to keep him strong in the finish here. That sucked. Show did pick up some steam as it went along and I enjoyed the second hour. Not sure how Deeb and Shida resolve their issue but it is intense as hell and I am all in on whatever they decide to do. Garcia is such a prospect. Dude was phenomenal in that main event. Intensity, strikes, grappling, stooge bumps. Damn. Also its weird how Raleigh crowds tend to suck while Greensboro an hour away is such a killer wrestling town.
  17. (apologies if already posted) Tweeted 15 minutes after the Fightful report about WWE having an interest in Wardlow: It’s a fine enough article but my goodness. If AEW were a mature company with a proper risk management program, “Tony K does some dumb shit on Twitter because he feels threatened when he reads something and it gets us thrown off the air” would be my top risk for the entire company. Someone get the man some support. And I say that sincerely because I love the product and don’t want some reactionary TK Twitter nonsense to get them into deep shit.
  18. Really excited to see who or what is next for Hangman. So many options. Garcia/Sammy has a high degree of banger potential
  19. As a true development show it would make sense to have the Orlando-based “AA” and taped before Raw/Smackdown “AAA” hours. With “A” being the non-TV coconut loop.
  20. Wonder if the lights going out for the second during the main is a tease of something to come. I mean, I’m sure it is, and I’m excited to see what’s up with that. Between that and Chekhov’s Judges we had a little subtlety tonight, which I dug
  21. Luchasaurus is either the slowest wrestler in the history of wrestling or just looks that way because he’s been sharing a ring with Fenix and Jungle Boy. Goodness, that was tough to watch at times.
  22. Good news for budgeting this invasion angle is that, as we all know, Trent already has Scott Hall’s denim in the AEW wardrobe. Now only a question of if it fits Gargano.
  23. Regal / Danhausen buddy cop gimmick Oh shit I never realized this but Regal might be the most BTE-perfect human being in pro wrestling
  24. The big six man tag ends with Cody dropping the leg brother, and it alllllll comes full circle
