  1. It’s kind of funny how all of the WWE’s tactics to undermine AEW keep backfiring on them.
  2. I’m not sure that it being taped is as much of an issue as it is being taped after a 2 hour show and some dark matches. The crowd just doesn’t have the same juice. As far as time slots Friday at 10 is obviously terrible. I was hoping they’d get the old WCW Saturday Night time slot had and still hope it’s moved there at some point.
  3. I agree that they should have done tag titles for the women instead but if they use the TBS title similar to the TNT title where there are lots of open challenges—maybe that could be a way for them to bring in some veterans with tv experience to help carry the multitude of green girls on the roster.
  4. Does anyone know if Sky Blue vs Jade was the first of the tbs tournament matches, or just a match between the competitors? Anyway, I thought commentary was pretty hilarious tonight. “CM punk goes flying… like Mussolini…or Gandhi…or Kennedy. That really cracked me up. Taz being in despair when Starks was in trouble in his match was probably the best part of it too.
  5. I wonder if some people just won’t be re-signed when their 3 years come up next year.
  6. Based on BTE, I’m guessing the Young Bucks are proselytizing the roster into becoming Jordan enthusiasts.
  7. It looked like Christian’s head was a good 3 feet from the ground, so I don’t think so. Maybe he got hurt earlier and that’s how they got him out of the match-it was a little weird that the announcers didn’t stress his injury or the uneven odds more. Anyway, I really liked JR saying what I was thinking about them having a trophy for Shida before the match and love that she ended up losing. Deeb being so vicious in the match was also a nice touch and made the match better. I thought Sammy and Fish had a really good match. The crowd signing Jericho’s song to drown out Lambert was probably the best use of that by the crowd so far —Jericho going toe to toe with the former UFC HW champ and causing him to bail was a little ridiculous though. Glad Hangman is back and won. Looking forward to his first interaction with Adam Cole and winning the title.
  8. I’m not sure what you mean by bruv. I looked it up on urban dictionary and it said it was southern London slang for brother, so I don’t know if you mean he’s a bro/meat head but I think I might be missing some connotations to the British slang since there are probably lots of meat heads still in the wrestling business. But there is no possible way he can be dumber or more cringe than Joey Janela. And unlike Janela (who I am amazed still has a job after the debacle with Hangman), he could actually have amazing matches with numerous people in AEW. The rest of the stuff sounds like he was probably being a bit of a dick to someone who was mean to his gf, so not the best co-worker but a good boyfriend. But I don’t think the backstage politics of Independent wrestling promotions should have any bearing on him being anywhere in the future. Especially, since I just want to see more awesome matches.
  9. Why would anyone be bothered by Osprey? I don’t watch a lot of New Japan but every match I’ve seen of his has been pretty spectacular.
  10. My only real take away from this show is that I really like the American Dragon a lot more than Daniel Bryan. It’s a shame that WWE apparently waters all of its wrestlers down.
  11. Before it gets there, I’m actually curious to see how they handle Hangman Page (assuming he returns in the near future) and Adam Cole—since Cole obviously wasn’t a part of Hangman’s falling out with them.
  12. A heel announcing that his opponents family was now unemployed because he’d laid them all off or closed there business down to make profits in stock or whatever would be unique and a pretty great way to get some heat. Basically basing a character off of Paul Singer. It’s a billionaire and much more evil version of the million dollar man. Not sure they intend on going down that route but it’d be fascinating if they did.
  13. Bobby Fish vs Sammy for the TNT title was announced for next week in an interview segment on Rhodes to the top. Interesting.
  14. The Irish whip used to be performed by the person doing it squatting low to generate leverage (or create the appearance of doing that) but know that you mention it, I don’t think a lot of guys don’t do that anymore. Marko Stunt Irish Whipping Wardlow or even just any average sized person would look absolutely ridiculous if they actually went with it. And I would complain about that if I was ever somehow tricked into watching a Marko Stunt match. Anyway, the idea is to not make the cooperation so transparent, especially to the point of being comical or eye roll inducing. And it’s not just about the move but who is performing the moves and who they’re being performed on. The notion that someone like Matt Jackson could lift two near or over 200lb men above his head on each arm is laughable to begin with. So you start from a place of disbelief and then when it’s performed the cooperation is just too obvious. Maybe it looked better when he wrestled smaller guys on the indies but he should probably retire it in AEW. I don’t know if Scott Steiner ever performed the move but given his size how physically strong and impressive he was even before he became a juice head, and how explosively he performed moves, if he did, I bet it looked a lot better. So I’m not necessarily against the move but against a smaller high flyer doing power moves on guys that are around his size or bigger.
