  1. Hangman wins the title and defeats Kenny clean in the ring because Kenny can't hit the One Winged Angel this time. This way Kenny will not lose his confidence because he knows he can and will beat Hangman if he gets him down with the OWA. Big rematch down the line, Kenny hits the OWA, Hangman kicks out, Kenny loses it and the match shortly after.

    Yeah, but Hangman kicking out of the Angel this time would work fine too.

  2. So, I’m working in child and youth services over here in Germany and every few weeks I’m watching AEW while “working” when I couldn’t make the time to watch live or before going to work.

    Today I was watching a little Rampage and two thirteen-year-old boys who know absolutely nothing about wrestling recognized Orange Cassidy. Told me how cool his whole hands-in-his-pocket-thing is and that they’ve seen him on TikTok several times. Thought that was kinda cool.

    Also, I’m really glad that AEW has one advertised women’s match on almost every show because our ten-year-old girl always asks when/if women are wrestling.

  3. I get the feeling that Hangman somehow already feels like a relic from a long forgotten AEW past... but everytime I see Kenny and the Elite or Dark Order I'm longing for his return.

    Danielson v Kenny was just magnificent. I couldn't stop smiling.

  4. You could still freebird it with Penta and Pac to avoid the inevitable.


    I know that Kojima seems kinda underwhelming as opponent for Moxley, but I love it. Kojima was one of the main reasons I got into puroresu and I still really like him in the ring though he's obviously lost a step or two. And I'm really hoping that Kojima will heel it up against Moxley.

  5. I wanna say wrestling really is lacking more matches where both opponents just say "fuck it, I'm throwing my best shit at you from the get go", but then I remembered that WWE tried that and it was so so lame.

    So I wanna say, please wrestling around the world, do more matches where both opponents just say "fuck it, I'm throwing my best shit at you from the get go", but not like WWE did.

    What I'm trying to say is the world needs more Shibata Ishi G1 2013 (minus the headbutts).

    Give me people like Hangman, Moxley, Kingston, Archer, Miro, Black, Pac, Wardlow, Hobbs and Darby trying to emulate that.

    Kinda different theme, forgive me, but you saying that it "felt like both guys were actually desperate to win from the get go and there was no finisher spam" kinda triggered me, even though Taker-Punk is 20 plus minutes long.

    Are we supposed to know who that 2.0 tag team was?

    They are the team you'd always sign on EWR several years ago even though you've never seen them wrestle before because their stats and low wage were just to good to pass up.

  7. I'm still all in for a trios title. Lucha rules, ten minute time limit, something like that to make it stand out even more in comparison to "normal" tag titles. Just give me some nine minute bangers with all these trios and groups they established by now.

    I am so ready for a fan made video package set to My Way by Limp Bizkit.

    "I need to beat you Kenny. I need it more than anything you could ever imagine. There can be only one All Elite Wrestling champion. And that will be, Kenny, Hangman Adam Page."

    Penelope Ford vs. Yuka Sakazaki

    Not sure what the value is here. Neither of these ladies are anywhere near the top of the pecking order or have any significant angle going on (unless Miro is going to come out again which is unlikely with no males involved). Yuka's match with King on youtube was pretty lackluster. This just seems like such an odd matchmaking choice.

    I think the value here is to start the push of Yuka for a program with Britt.

  10. Who brings a sign that reads "Persona 5 sucks" to a wrestling show? Persona 5 is fucking great and even if you don't like it, why would you bring that sign to AEW? So random and I can't stop thinking about it.

  11. Well, to be fair, Matt Sydal is not really a jobber but more a midcarder who beats people like Jack Evans, Dante Martin, Joey Janela und unsigned talent and loses to people like Kenny Omega, Christian Cage and Cody Rhodes (and Brian Cage, Eddie Kingston and Shawn Spears to be complete). Labelling him as just a jobber is a tad bit hard and inflationary.

    And as boring a character I think he is, Matt Sydal going ten plus minutes with a at least semi-talented wrestler usually is some good quality tv wrestling.

    Jungle Boy vs. Stu Grayson for the affection of Anna Jay is the match I did not now I needed to see until today.

    Those dudes would kill each other and it would probably be great.  I'd give them at least 30 minutes.

    This whole story has to end with Anna Jay on a Forklift!

  13. Penta went from smart to stupid in a matter of seconds in that opener. Really liked the mask under his mask but he looked like a fool after that. Just take care of the other guy not interrupting the pin and you’re winning the match but Penta just stood there and looked how their win got taken away.

    I kinda like how Andrade just debuted lowkey without much fanfare but it also felt weird. People wanna boo Vickie but don’t wanna boo Andrade debuting and the audience obviously didn’t really got the announcement of Vickie at first because they were so invested in hating her.

    Ogogo and QT vs. Cody and Johnson… Scott Keith may say that it's 'Perfectly Acceptable Wrestling', but not for me, buddy. Got to work harder to impress me. Jungle Christian vs. Hardy Party after that was perfectly fine then but nothing out of the ordinary either.

    Inner Circle face promos are boring and I’m really not that interested to see more of them against the Pinnacle. Kenny and Callis are insufferable (in a good way!). Hook looks just so punchable and I love Ricky, Cage and Hook acting passive aggressive to one another. Velvet against Bunny was, I guess. Britts title celebration was underwhelming. Miro thanking god for his power and hot wife is exactly the way god should be referenced on a wrestling show. Miro is all around greatness. Main Event could’t really hold my interest.

    Show was somewhat bland. QT and the gang vs. Cody and the gang, Inner Circle vs. Pinnacle and Ego Sky vs. Darby Sting all seem to continue and I’m really not interested in any of these programs right now. But I’m all for Orange vs. Kenny continuing.

    And please more of Miro killing loveable dorks of Dark Order until someday in the far future John Silver gets the TNT title back to Dark Order.

    Bucks/Mox & Kingston was fine until the end. both Bucks were in the ring for the last 10+ minutes of the match. usually that stuff doesn't bother me, but this took me way out of the match. when, THREE TIMES IN A ROW, one of the Bucks stepped from the ring to the apron specifically to tag in to the match, your ref is fucking terrible. if the storyline isn't that ref Knox is 100% in the Bucks' pocket, then it makes absolutely no sense.

    Well, they payed Knox on the new BTE.

    Did Schiavone really say Ashley D'Amboise started her career in April? She's working Elevation having been in the business ONE month?

    ProFightDb says she had her first match ever on Apr 21st 2021 losing to Penelope Ford on Dark, then lost to Nyla on May 5th, lost to Rosa on May 13th, lost to Megan Bayne in WWR on May 16th in her first match ever outside AEW and that's apparently her whole career.

    PPV is in 2 weeks and they've barely got the card together. Build is terrible. Only thing that got more than 3 weeks build is Bucks-Mox/Eddie. 

    Come on, that's just hating for the sake of wanting to hate.

    Britt challenging for the title started after St. Patrick's Day Slam in March (though it sucks that the build up is all about Britt and nothing about Shida). Brian Cage being a roadblock for Hangman started one month ago. Sting/Darby vs. Scorpio/Ego started with Scorpio losing to Darby in March. Cody vs. QT and his peers started in March (though the USA vs. GB comes out of nowhere and can fuck off). And Young Bucks vs. Moxley/Kingston and Inner Circle vs. Pinnacle are obviously going on longer.

    World title and TNT title haven't really been build up that much, I give you that. I don't think that's a problem with the TNT title, which has been featured just fine in the last weeks, it just isn't woven into a story culminating at the PPV. But your world title being an afterthought is bad.
