  1. Yeah, I'll be missing this week's workouts due to a flu (COVID test came back negative, thankfully). Missing two days of work means catching up on AEW stuff as much as possible and letting my right trap recover properly. Damn, that was a stubborn one! It's pretty much fine now, but it was sore af for at least 5 days!

    If you're eager for more Allin, if you google "Darby Allin vs WALTER" and watch the first video, it's one of the better matches of the last 10 years imo. Not in AEW, obv, but incredible stuff from both guys. Damn shame we won't be getting that again anytime soon.

    I assume you've seen Darby vs. MJF from the last PPV? Thought that was Allin's best match in AEW to date and stole the show. 

    I've yet to see any AEW PPV's aside from the original All In, so most of AEW's best stuff is still unseen to me. This is a journey of discovery as I'm only two-three weeks into my FITE subscription.

    I remember reading about WALTER vs Allin back when it was new-ish.

    ...and @John from Cincinnati at least that one angle with Cody and Jericho looked amazing!

    I thought Cody vs. Darby with the TNT switch is one of the underrated matches in company history. The first match pre-Dynamite era that goes 15 or 20 is really good too. Darby/Jericho from early Dynamite era was another good 'un.

    I'll try and find those too, then!

    Fightful reports that The IInspiration were also asked to return for Rumble - which Impact would have improved - but the former IIconics turned it down as they weren't interested in appearing for WWE right now

    This is great! Good for them! This almost as great as the tweet I read about someone re-applying for the job they got fired from, getting the job and then quitting when they desperately needed her! Now THAT'S a FU, right there!

  5. Since I have no clear place to put these, I'll just leave them lying around here, but yesterday I watched some more earlier AEW stuff. Rampage with Andrade-PAC I and Best of AEW 2019 special. PAC-Andrade was very similar to their second match other than the ending. Really wild, but very similar.

    Kenny vs PAC was amazing and Kenny's theme "Battle Cry" is one of the most awesome things ever!

    Mox vs Allin was just insane and the first Allin match I have seen, that actually let him live up to the hype, so far.

    Cody vs Sammy was good and it's nice to see that one in order to compare it to their later matches together.

    Cody&friends vs Inner Circle in the VIP box angle was awesome!

    Today, I figured I'd watch Blood and Guts as well as Cody vs Brodie Lee matches and the Malakai Black saga.

    Wardlow is like a better Brian Cage to me. He can pull off some nutty stuff that a guy his size shouldn't be able to do, but seems to have some personality and character inside of him as well. He really does feel like an AEW equivilent to 2002 Brock Lesnar.

    You know, if Cage is indeed on his way out, they could have him put Wardlow over soon after his actual turn happens, if they can still get Cage to show up for that!

    That reminds me of all the Health and Fitness magazines where (insert action star with movie coming out here) is on the cover touting his workout regimen.  One of the best things I ever read about this phenomena is where someone said "broccoli and chicken and hard workouts is Hollywood slang for PEDs."

    Yeah, that's probably exactly what I was attempting to refer to. Or that time when Jinder Mahal claimed that his transformation was attributed to cutting out all carbs from his diet.

    Also not really directly related to any of this but the second I saw that Khan tweet insulting Swole I thought "oh shit yeah he definitely signed off on the offensive Caster rap then threw him under the bus when it backfired didn't he"

    FWIW, I always assumed this is exactly how that one went down.

    The weird thing with Kairi is  they clearly were ok with the idea of her wrestling there at some point, but randomly changed their minds.

    Which of course is in direct contradiction with what was said about Mickie James entering Royal Rumble while with Impact. "That's not a problem anymore", when it's someone working for WWE and all of a sudden it totally still is a problem once it should work the other way around. That's just peachy. Of course, the Kairi situation was prior to this, but I doubt their stance has actually changed on that all of a sudden.

  10. Trent with a huge win! That was a good match.

    Anna Jay had that one opportunity to take Jade out with that choke and she almost made it count.

    Jungle Boy is a damn good promo for someone who's supposedly a bad promo!

    Ok, so Marshall will be getting suplexed each time Hook is out there, right?

    Rosa-Martinez should kick a decent amount of ass!

    Moxley looked good. Danielson and Mox have a history. This shoud be interesting.

    Ok, did some of you flash "The Natural" sign on camera during the opening match?

    Close. He said Moxley should apologise to fans for missing shows (because he was in rehab).

    Yeah, I don't know, Bully. Maybe he can just, you know, stay alive and be able to keep wrestling (and living his family life) and MAYBE make up for those missed shows by making the shows at the end of his active career, that likely has been extended somewhat now, by his decision to enter rehab?

    Honestly, one would hope that this is some stupid attempt at setting up an angle, as many have suggested, since if he really meant what he said, I don't know what to tell ya! Holy crap!

    Rocky Romero has COVID so that match has turned into Nick Jackson vs Trent Beretta.

    Ok, so I haven't been able to establish any nostalgia for 2015-17 NJPW, but I saw the footage for the match and got all excited. This sucks!

  13. This was the first time I've actually heard a Cody promo in AEW other the promos before and after the Dustin match, but there was plenty going on. At face value, I think I can see where he is going with this, but I can't really tell if he's trolololling or not. What I can tell, however, is the load of BS with the "I was talking about all of you!" Cut the crap, Cody! You weren't talking about me! You don't even KNOW me! I just got here!

    This was a thrilling episode, even if the wrestling isn't exactly what I was expecting, considering the hype I keep reading each week. Plenty of good stuff story-wise, however.
