Got behind on this and just catching up now. Hope my not watching this live doesn't affect its chances at a second season.
Showing so much of Preston Vance without his mask is certainly a choice. But it really hammers home how much access the producers have and how real this all is. I know it's probably too behind the scenes for some people and a fuddy-duddy like Cornette will probably complain about this |exposing the business" or some other out of touch shit, but it was really humanizing for Preston. Like, hey, there's a real person under that mask.
It's hard for me to imagine someone as attentive as Cody forgetting Brandi's bus bed. He owes her a champagne slam cake to make up for it.
One of the thing I really love about AEW is the respect they show the legends of this business whose legacy is ignored and neglected elsewhere. Eric Bischoff deserves all the credit in the world for being a foundational part of AEW's identity. Happy to see that acknowledged and respected. Give him his flowers.
I've never heard anyone explain wrestling psychology quite like QT. But I'm sure he understands some people might be watching this who aren't all that familiar with the intricacies of wrestling. Speak for the audience you have. Really smart stuff by Marshall.
I wonder if part of why we haven't seen Cody more consistently in the mix lately in AEW is because of his accumulating injuries and mental exhaustion. I feel for the guy. Having this whole thing riding on his shoulders has to be draining.
The inside of his Double or Nothing entrance outfit is so cool.
On Busted Open, Cody teased something really interesting involving Arn on this weekend's installment. Sounds like a must see.
