Omega and Page have to feud for the next six months, and once that's over one of them will take the title from Mox.

Re: The AEW Thread

I've been keeping up with the weekly Dynamite program and enjoying it. Definitely think they are producing better weekly shows with more interesting feuds than WWE is.

I didn't buy the PPV though, and from reading the internet it seems that was a wise decision.

Re: The AEW Thread

I purchased the PPV and it was by far the worst big show they've put out.

The Jericho match was just plain weird/bad. The Matt Hardy fall really put a damper on the entire show.

I would give MJF/Moxley a B+.

Janela preshow : D+
Britt Baker/Big Swole : D+
Dark Order match : C-
Women's title match : B-
Battle Royal : C-
Men's Tag team match (way too long) : B
Matt Hardy / Sammy G : D+ (because of the concussion injury)

Re: The AEW Thread

I've been watching a bit of AEW lately and have been enjoying it. No Cody on the show helps A LOT. Also they just signed the biggest free agent and the greatest wrestler in the world.

A quick glance and I thought that was Gillberg.

Re: The AEW Thread

I feel lame shilling for a wrestling company, but AEW is killing it right now and deserves to be talked more on this forum than it does.

Dynamite was great last night and the company has alot of great stories going on. My biggest criticism is that every match tries to be 'too good'. They could really do for more squashes. (MJF had a very effective one last night).

Gold happening in AEW right now:

-Last nights parking lot brawl between Santana/Ortiz and Best Friends was ridiculous. Crazy hardcore fight with some wild spots off cars/trucks/windshields/hoods. Def worth checking out.

-MJF may be the best thing going in wrestling right now. His promos and character work are fire every time, and he's brilliantly slowly setting up a turn/feud with Wardlow while he continues to hunt for Moxley and the title.

-Great long-term story and feud setting up between Kenny Omega and Hangman Page. Their tag team is no more, but Page is still hung up on his ex.

-Similarly great story developing between FTR and the Bucks.

-Eddie Kingston cuts a hell of a promo and his 'family' of Butcher, Blade and the Lucha Brothers are setting up nicely to wreak some havoc.

-MIRO has been tabbed as Kip Sabians 'best man'. It's only a matter of time between Miro spectacularly and brutally turns on Kip and destroys him. And then hopefully he'll be off to the races as a top AEW guy.

-AEW just finds such a good/efficient way to maximize their 2 hours each week to highlight so many different wrestlers. All of the above arcs were explored last night while also having time to spotlight or mention:

Moxley vs Team Taz (now with Lance Archer as an ally)
Thunder Rosa/Shida alliance vs Ivalisse/Diamante
Private Party (and Matt Hardy) v Jericho/inner circle
Jurassic Express v FTR

It's amazing what you can accomplish in 2 hours when you don't spend 30+ mins every week showing video clips of what happened 3 weeks earlier!

Re: The AEW Thread

Okay, I guess I should check back in and try watching again.

Do they still do ridiculous, show-ruining kickouts multiple times per show?

Yeah, I'd say they are guilty of it in general.

Dammit. I need my NWA back.

I'll still try to give AEW another shot. If nothing else, I'm curious to see Thunder Rosa on another stage.

It's awesome to see Eddie Kingston killing it on a big stage.
