  1. Stoke hamming it up on Dark with whatever stable he ends up with is going to be amazing
  2. Lex (called shitty not only by fans but by practically every worker who ever wrestled him) had some bangers. And the pop when he beat Hogan was undeniable.
  3. Umaga, Danielson, Punk, Lesnar Extreme Rules, Michaels RAW is a pretty ridiculous top 5
  4. I love Punk/Hangman as a big main event because for the first time…ever? I’m not sure who will win the AEW title. Feels like that title has had a well written but clear story all the way from All Out 1 to now, and now I can’t wait to see what happens. Maybe Cody/Jericho had some doubt in it. But not like this one IMO.
  5. There are several college sports media deals up soon, and it would make sense for Discovrry to get heavier into that game, in particular hoops, given the brand they already have in that sport with Inside The NBA, etc. I think Discoery deciding just how all-in to go on sports is a key decision point with all this. Yes, I am proposing MACtion or the like as the lead in for Rampage and the board raising hell when Western Kentucky / Louisiana Tech goes into double OT.
  6. It’s endearing how much the fans and performers involved genuinely love Orton and Riddle together. Not sure how they break them up without the fans rejecting the booking…hopefully not for a long time.
  7. That was Suzuki playing the hits but Suzuki playing the hits is never not fucking awesome I love how there’s the Dark Order pop, and then there’s the “but who is it? Is it John Silver? Please be John Silver. YES, it’s John Silver!!” second pop.
  8. Nice 1989 ep guys. Beau is a great storyteller!
  9. That’s a solid lineup right there. Looks like a good time for the folks in Newcastle.
  10. Trent was an awesome shout. Not really the same thing but it’s incredible how over Dean Malenko was in 1997 while doing this gimmick. It blows me away when I watch old Nitros…Dean is always like the fourth most over guy on the show. It’s awesome!
  11. If they could sign Kamille, that’s a credible threat. Not sure what her contract situation is.
  12. I know I should be better than this but I can’t help it, I just can’t take Adam Cole seriously when he pulls his knee pad down and dude looks like he squats 150. It’s visually absurd that he’s presented as credibly putting down Ishii.
  13. Daniel Garcia graduating to full blown N’Sync member complete with bucket hat in that backstage bit was treeeeeeemendous
  14. I guess the super show doesn’t need stakes to sell out and do a good number, but to me it feels like it needs stakes. Does it need stakes? Like the winning promotion gets a world title shot at the opposing promotion’s Fall PPV or something. And you could allow NJPW to run Okada/Danielson at Destruction as a result of that.
  15. Ethan Page checks a lot of the Owen boxes. Good tag guy, good IC/TNT-level guy, Canadian, backstage jokester
  16. Oh yeah, Giulia/Jade is the biggest box office womens match not considering WWE that could conceivably happen
  17. Can’t wait to see who BCC’s first real meaty feud is with. Quite a few options given their status as tweeners: JAS, House of Black, Kingston/PoP, Best Friends, heck even Dark Order. Shit now I want to see Danielson stooge for Silver’s hot tag.
  18. Kevin Nash about to come in hot Also, if I know the internet like I think I know the internet, how on earth does Paul Wight have 2.5x the searches of Mandy Rose?
  19. This or something similar would be a good kickoff event for the streaming service. You’d have to figure out how to make it work with NJPW long term, but a bundle of AEW/ROH/NJPW content gets you access to about…a million?…sticky die hard fans. If 75 percent of those subscribe, does 750k subs move the needle enough for an HBO Max (46m current US subs)? WWE Network at its peak was around 2 million at the time of the Peacock deal I believe. AEW clearly gets more out of a clean “AEW airs on NJ World in Japan, NJPW airs on AEW Network in the US” transaction than NJPW does, so they’d have to figure it out.
  20. I mean we’re discussing this topic on a message board. Does anyone under 25 even know what a message board is? Reddit excluded, maybe. Lets face it, we’re all sitting around watching the local news / Andy Griffith Show back-to-back wondering what all the fuss about “the Metallica” is all about.
  21. If OC is healthy you have to run the Yano match. 1997 era Jericho and Garcia vs 1997 era Yuji Nagata (w/ Sonny Onoo) and [pick a young lion] would be awesome too. Time to bust out Starrcade 95.
  22. Jose The Assistant being sneaky jacked was a highlight
  23. It will be fun to fantasy book the super show, but I’m not sure NJPW has the roster to really stack this with desirable matches. Once you get past Okada/Tanahashi/Naito/Ishii/Suzuki/White…..who else do I care about? I dunno. And their tag division absolutely sucks. Miro vs Ishii though please
