  1. This thing would have been a bad episode of Raw at the time. Play a drinking game with the breaks in the Owen and Bulldog match and you'd be hurting. Heavenly Bodies clearly had run out of fucks to give. Yoko squashing jobbers dead and Billy Gunn's silly ass mullet were a sight to behold and....that's it.
  2. You have to give credit to Stevens. This man goes all out to be completely unlikeable and look like a complete fool. None of this cool heel shit here, this asshole comes out in flesh colored trunks and won't let people make eye contact with him. It's so ridiculous and I just want to slap the shit out of him. Good work to you, sir
  3. @HarryArchieGus your point about how it feels good to support this company for the things they do right cannot be liked enough. AEW has a ton of goodwill they have built up in their short existence for the simple reason that this company does not make you feel like they actively hate you or think you are stupid like WWE main roster shows do. Its amazing how when you book babyfaces not to be utter geeks that we the fans can get invested in them. I could not give two shits about Cody in the WWE but I actively look forward to what he's doing here. Jurassic Express would have lasted maybe 5 minutes before Luchasaurus turned on Jungle Boy, but the people got behind them and they are stars in the making. Goodwill goes a long way and AEW has it so far
  4. Tyler Bate and Trent Seven are both so damn great and their match against Undisputed Era was on of my favorite NXT TV matches. I know Ohno is never going to amount to anything more then what he is now but the guy is still great and as long as he's putting on matches like this it's ok by me. I loved his cocky look when Bate was trying to German him like "Are you fucking kidding me" turn to utter shock that he was being lifted and about to be dropped on his head. I hope Tyler stays far far away from the main roster. And since you mentioned it, can we get Gable on a plane over to the UK asap???
  5. LOVE this scene. "This is the really real world. There ain't no coming back" God, we could do a whole thread on just why that whole movie is fucking epic
  6. His tweet about how every Tuesday before Smackdown him and Vince lock each other in the old man's office, take their shirts off and have a push ups contest while screaming at each other might be the greatest thing ever on the twitter machine
  7. Did....did I just see Keanu Reeves as a talking tumbleweed? Am I having a stroke? Is this real life?
  8. Val Kilmer shouting "THERE'S A PECK WITH AN ACORN AND HE'S POINTING IT AT ME" is still the greatest line of that movie and arguably his greatest performance
  9. (1)I would totally buy this and (2)I really want to see what the huge tirade from Sami is
  10. -Shawn Spears is AEW's Dolph Ziggler. He's never going to be a real threat or do anything at the top of the card, but he's the perfect guy to have someone you want to move up a notch beat. He's a cromulant wrestler and fits in the mid card. He can make an up and coming babyface look good, eat a finisher or two and go about his business. -With the pay per view pricing, I can see the point that if you put on something people are excited enough to see, $50 isn't a big deal. But I can honestly say I REALLY wanted to watch Full Gear but that's too steep for me(damn kids of mine needing groceries and stuff for school and such). Granted, we are spoiled in the streaming network age but it feels like they could get a few more buys if they lowered the price maybe $10 or $15?
  11. Jesus Christ, hats off to both Io and Mia for that match. And I understand why they do it, but I HATE this trend where someone gets cut and we have to send all these people in to tend to the cut and stop the match dead. The toothpaste is out of the tube, but I wish we could remember that we are supposed to watching fighting here and sometimes blood can add to an already great match(I'm looking at you, super awesome Cody Rhodes vs Chris Jericho match from Full Gear) The shameless Bayley mark in me loved seeing her kick some ass and I love the new finisher. Its taking a minute, but she's slowly starting to find a heel groove. Evil prick Finn rules the world and mocking Gargano's neck injury as him being too much of a bitch to fight is some top level trolling. All in on Riddle vs Finn, bro
  12. Is it wrong to be both terrified and reminded that I need to settle down at the same time with this picture?
  13. That Baron Corbin....thing. Why are we doing this in 2019? I bought Rick Rude being suspended for making fun of Big Bossman's mom back in the day, but those were simpler times, damnit. And if we HAVE TO DO THIS, isn't the logical progression of having a dude in a suit that's hanging around with your douchebag heel be that someone surprises said heel by kicking his ass while in the suit and taking off the mask so that we the audience can have a good laugh with our smart babyface outsmarting this asshat? Seems like the kind of thing that a guy like Shorty G would be perfect for. Now that Bray is on the blue show with the blue belt, are we going to have stupid blue lights during his matches? I loved Bryan's reasoning that it takes someone already unstable to want to fight a lunatic like Bray. I hope we can eventually get back to the story they were building with Nakamura and Sami. Maybe they cost Bryan the SS match? I love all the collective members of the New Day but I am so god damn sick of them in tag team matches. Not even saying they need to split them up, but can't we do something different besides title win #345? and GIVE ME REVIVAL VS UNDISPUTED ERA, YOU COWARDS
  14. So, watching this show, we could really do a lot worse then have Ali and Gable be a full time tag team. They both have that underdog baby face appeals. And Ali’s awesome story of trying to show that Muslim does not equal bad person could fit in with Gable’s “embrace who you are” shtick. Hell, it’s not like either guy is really doing anything of note right now anyway
  15. I get the talking point of “violence for the sake of violence” but wasn’t that part of the point of the match itself? That if Kahn and the AEW powers that be wouldn’t sanction the match for fear of the level of violence then Moxley was going to give them blood and guts and then some just as a fuck you? Sure, the match could have been ten minutes shorter but to me it never felt like some of the worst garbage brawls we have seen over the years.
  16. Sweet Jesus, 5 vs 5 vs 5 is just too much. I get having the title matches being triple threat but do we REALLY need this? If we are trying to be nice and get everybody on the show, can't we do a battle royal or something? Or can't we just do a few dream matches with assorted Raw/Smackdown guys vs NXT guys? Do we really need Captain Douchebag trying to recruit anybody from RAW to help him?
  17. I can't really add anything that hasn't been said already about the show. But I do want to admit that I was wrong about Cody Rhodes. Before AEW was a thing, dude always struck me as a guy who you could count on to hold your secondary championship, maybe main event a low level PPV but nothing above that. But he has honestly been one of the best parts of AEW since it started. Yes, all the EVPs have some schitzophrenic booking amongst themselves, but I'll be damned if Cody doesn't suck me in every time. The match vs Jericho was my favorite of the night, and dude is just killing it as the best babyface the company has. As much as we are all rightfully looking forward to MJF's total rat bastard promo that we know is coming, I'm looking forward to Cody's response even more and I never thought there would EVER be a day I would say that. Respect to you, Mr Rhodes
  18. In all honesty, not just with Scurll, but right now at this moment, why would anyone want to sign with WWE? Not to hate on WWE at all. There is already more talent there then they have room for. There's talent there that are just sitting on the shelf for petty reasons or just because the people holding the pencil have no idea where to slot you so that the senior citizen running the show will look at what you are doing and say "God damn, that's good shit!" Even if you do make TV, you might have to watch your wife make out with another dude and tell the world how much you suck or something else dumb. Sure, you could hold out hope you go to NXT and maybe not look stupid but even they have more talent then they know what to do with. Say what you will about AEW, but they managed to make fucking Jack Swagger interesting in the span of a few weeks. And by all accounts everyone is getting PAID. If you have the chance, why wouldn't you go to AEW? And the best part is, all of us wrestling nerds get to reap the rewards of all this. What a time to be alive, my friends
  19. How the hell is this even real? Is Lana now going to be held captive by Bob Lashley? Was she cheating on the guy she was cheating with? is SHE the sex addict? And who the hell knocked up Maria? *by the way, mr heyman, if this is you writing this shit, you got some issues you need working through
  20. I didn't know I needed this in my life until right now
  21. I still have a hard time wrapping my head around Cody Rhodes selling me on wanting to see his upcoming match with arguably the promo of the year but god damn if that's not where we are. Somehow the dude who made me instantly change the channel as Stardust has become one of the most over babyfaces in the sport and my hat is off to the guy. And the best part of this match is we have no idea who is going to win. Pure wrestling logic dictates that both guys HAVE to win. The outcome is so unpredictable and I love it. And even if Cody loses, it feels like they will find a way to get him back into the title picture down the road and not make us feel like idiots for buying into the stipulation here. No, the shows are not perfect. But the goodwill they have earned from the fanbase cant be overlooked. I don't feel like an idiot when I watch this show and I don't feel like the people running the show hate me. Cant say that for other programs
  22. This really just needs to be a thing from now on. Is there ONE person who attends Smackdown who would be sad if they don't see 205live? And that's not to knock the show, since more often then not they have the best matches of the week that no one is seeing. Put them in front of a crowd who actually cares and you may have something
