  1. The idea that Cody Rhodes is even close to Jeff Jarrett is one of the most ridiculous wrestling takes I have seen in a long time. I myself was a big time connoisseur of TNA back in '04. '05, '06 and let me tell you that nobody reigned supreme like Planet Jarrett. For instance, from their very first three hour PPV Victory Road 2004 until Bound for Glory 2006 - Jeff Jarrett main evented 16 of those 24 PPV's with three co-main events in there as well that were major storylines at the time. Couple that with the fact that out of those 714 days between Victory Road '04 and Bound for Glory '06 Jarrett held the NWA World Heavyweight title for 621 of them. That right there is putting not just the main event, but the championship belt in a stranglehold. So to think that Cody Rhodes, a guy who was one of the main event pillars that this very company was founded upon with Chris Jericho, Jon Moxley, and Kenny Omega is anywhere near that is just laughable. To think that Cody wouldn't shouldn't or isn't worthy of a win over Malakai Black is a little bit too far. Cody is 11-5 on the year after that win so it's not like he hasn't ate his share of losses either, but we also overanalyze everything because that's what we do as fans. Cody's bit doesn't bother me at all, but I respectfully agree that he can be a little cringe at times. He's done nothing but help elevate talent like MJF at the beginning of AEW's inception when Max wasn't exactly a household name, Darby Allin with the TNT Championship, and I dare say help establish Malakai Black fairly early in his run as well. Finding a nice balance between no 50/50 booking, eating L's, and yet being a credible 'main eventer' in a sports/win-loss record driven promotion is hard but I think Cody has done his job fairly well since AEW's birth.
  2. So that's why Cena locked in the STF under the chin vs across the face
  3. I'm spoilering that for size, because the picture is absurdly large for some reason, but a since deleted tweet by ShopAEW seems to imply AEW is partnering with Susan G Komen foundation. Edit: If I'm reading into it, this is probably in reference to above tweet
  4. Not gonna lie, this is my favorite Tony Khan. I personally love it.
  5. You know what, I really enjoyed that Malakai Black vs. Dante Martin match. That was just excellent. I unfortunately missed the trios match - but everything I saw on Twitter said it was great as well.
  6. Gimme Leyla Hirsch in the IC to counter Paige VanZant and ATT. 5v5 mixed tag at Full Gear.
  7. I'm still in awe that MiSu/Dragon was on YouTube of all places. Does last night help signify that live Rampage > taped?
  8. Well, we've seen the mountain top and boy is it glorious.
  9. 100% fair point. By the time we got to Rampage a couple of weeks ago, I was already burnt out from Dark + Dynamite and I think it's because the shows are so damn good. You're popping every five minutes it seems and by the time you get to Rampage you've already been in the arena for 3 1/2 hours... Jesus, makes me shudder to think what a RAW show would be like to go to with 3 hours of that PLUS Main Event.
  10. The problem I have with Rampage is that it's taped - first and foremost. Maybe it's unfair of me, but I think we can all agree live wrestling/sports is just so much better in the moment than going back to watch it later. You then couple that with the fact that - outside of that second Rampage (Punk's debut which also happened to be live) the crowd isn't into it as much as they are with Rampage. Then, we can boomerang around to the fact that an 18-45 demographic is probably busy on Friday nights whether it's partying with friends, dates, ect. HOWEVER, I think that due to the "omg CM Punk is returning!" is what gave them such a strong rating there. That's the anomaly right now. Let's be honest, Rampage is nothing more than a glorified Sunday Night Heat as it stands right now. You look at the cards and you can pick out who's winning every match probably pretty close to every time. Sure you'll get your IC vs. ATT type matches like tonight, but Punk vs. Daniel Garcia or Punk vs. Matt Sydal. I mean c'mon, we all know who's winning those. I'd really be tempted to almost just throw Rampage on at 7 or even head to head for the first hour of SD at 8 at this rate, assuming they have to stay on Friday nights. I heard TK talking about how they aren't running Full Gear on a Sunday to prevent him from going head to head with the NFL which makes sense since they are both his businesses. By process of elimination, that takes away Sunday, Monday, and Thursday from any potential AEW shows if I had to guess. That leaves you Tuesday, Wednesday, Friday and Saturday. I doubt they'd want to have Rampage air a week later so Tuesday would probably be off the table leaving only Friday and Saturday. Personally, I always thought it would be cool if they could get BTE on national TV. It's not everyone's cup of tea, but I love the interactions and just zaniness that takes place and think that could really appeal to the non wrestling fans out there.
  11. Love the Christian Cage theme. It's become a meme in my discord where if any sports game that's on could be an "instant classic" we throw that song on for added effect.
  12. That's brilliant if that's their ploy that he's a tweener. Begs the question - if the entrance tunnels dictate face/heel, what is Malakai Black?
  13. Not to my knowledge. Buy In has always been free on YouTube so I assume it'll be on their main page.
  14. My only question is - should they have done Fish vs. Danielson on thd Buy In and then Suzuki/BD on Dynamite. Because to me, BD vs. Suzuki feels like a MUCH bigger match than filet o Fish vs. DB.
