  1. 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.

  2. 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.

  3. 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.

    Does anyone have an opposite of a "and then the bell rang" guy? As in someone who you didn't think had that good of a look, no interesting gimmick or personality, and were more or less indifferent to but always enjoyed their matches?

    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!

  5. 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.

  6. 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.

    I'm a realist. They should let a Canadian win anyway, so let it be Ethan Page or Evil Uno.

    Ethan Page checks a lot of the Owen boxes. Good tag guy, good IC/TNT-level guy, Canadian, backstage jokester

    I'm up for any amount of pretense as long as there's a whiteboard at AEW HQ that says "POACH GIULIA".

    Oh yeah, Giulia/Jade is the biggest box office womens match not considering WWE that could conceivably happen

    So you know how CM Punk is doing a whole Bret Hart tribute thing nowadays? Well, remember how the Hart Foundation started in 1997? Bret came to the ring and interrupted a match between Owen and Davey, which had gotten out of hand and turned into more of a brawl. You don't think there's any chance that that's where we're going, do you?

    Oh dang. Vs. BCC. Oh my.

  10. 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.

    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? 

  12. 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.

    So as far as capturing mainstream attention, I don't know if I'd trust anyone who's hardcore into wrestling to be a great judge. (Myself included, in case anyone's going to get mad at me for saying that.)

    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.

  14. 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.

  15. 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 

  16. I will always appreciate Dave’s exhaustive work and dedication to pro wrestling, but it’s not debatable that his tastes shaped a view of what made good wrestling by the early internet wrestling community that absolutely sucked and led to the Johnny Kickpads generation.  Shame on you Dave.

    Shit, appreciation for Sid / Mark Henry / Bunkhouse Buck / Dusty Rhodes is what drove a lot of us to DVDVR in the first place. Finally, sanity.

  17. I’m not sure what the disagreement is here. It’s completely within the WWE’s right to revert to the formula of training sports athletes rather than poaching indies. It’s worked for them in the past and is a step up from underwear models of the mid aughts. 

    There have always been and will always be veteran Indy-born guys on the card like Steamboat, Goldust, Rude regardless. I think it makes sense to target your developmental recruiting on the athlete types moreso than the Indy types. 

    I unabashedly prefer NXT 2.0 over the Gargano/Cole/Ciampa era NXT though. Vince was 100% right that they product stunk and was contributing nothing to the main roster.
