Re: The AEW Thread

Shawn Spears THE GREATEST IN THE WORLD.

Looking forward to this.

(edit - I still can't get over the size different from promotions like this and WWE, Tye is obviously a big guy at 6'3 but he looks huge).

Re: The AEW Thread

It took me exactly this long to realize Spears is Tye D..

I can't get over Joey's attire/look. Looks like he belongs in
the opening match of a 2002 ROH show.

Re: The AEW Thread

One thing I will literally never get is dives to the outside that look like they hurt absolutely no one. I can put up with pretty much everything else but this is just a no.

Still good match, enjoyed it.

Re: The AEW Thread

Brandi goes for german suplex. It's so bad JR calls it "a waist lock take down".

Re: The AEW Thread

Ye my bad, look like they hurt no one unless the person doing it ****s up and they legit put themselves at huge risk of injury whilst still looking like it does no damage to the person they hit.

Ha, yeah I actually didn't disagree at all with the spirit of your post, but it still brought that scary-ass moment to mind. The fact that he repeated the spot the next year (and had it end up looking much the same) is crazy.

Yeah, but she is very pretty #womenswrestling

JR to me is literally the voice of wrestling but really? Whether this is a good choice I don't know.

Further confirmation of Steph 2.0 too. It's obviously different though as she showed weakness by tapping...

edit - Also big women wrestling is literally cancer, big men wrestling is bad and this is just on a smaller scale with less power and athleticism.

This is like Vader being thrown vs. Yokozuna. Who are the two biggest? Put them together!

Re: The AEW Thread

That spin kick + knee by Lucha/Jungle should've been the pin attempt. Just doing so many moves for no reason.

Fatality's a great move. Love The Super Smash Bros The Dark Order.

Re: The AEW Thread

As a guy who's not really that into wrestling and following all the different stuff going on. I really don't get Adam Page. He may be the legit GOAT and I'm just sleeping on him but his character does nothing to draw me in.

Re: The AEW Thread

Funny you say that. Da Meltz said the same thing after the last special. Something like "why am I supposed to like this guy? none of his background or anything was exposed. he was thrown in a 4-way for no reason.".

I'm putting it down to tv time, hoping it'll get better. All this being said this has been fine both good wrestlers. The only thing I'm dreading tonight is Jericho.

That's a dirty cut on Kips arm. Not sure what would cause such a deep cut on his elbow.

edit - Another thing that annoys me (I'm in a mood can you tell?) is when wrestlers take moves that are meant to **** them up and in their reaction they do stuff like brush hair out of their eyes/mouth. Women wrestlers do this a lot sorting out wedgies or whatever.

Re: The AEW Thread

That masked person looks very fat and unfit for what you'd expect.

Ohh it's Jericho.

edit - lol it actually is Jericho. I wasn't big on the Jericho is overweight and looks like **** comments previously but he looked fairly bad there.

Re: The AEW Thread

The "thank you Jericho" chants are rough for Page.

I'm really liking this venue/set up. The crowd is elevating a lot of not-that-great material imo.

Looks like WWE weren't doing that bad a job with the medical stuff...

I think it's been decent. Won't touch extreme rules though.

Re: The AEW Thread

Has no one told Jericho he was never better than a mid-card act who was good at attaching himself to the more interesting acts in WWE?

edit - When that guy in the crowd seemed to kick off with Jericho I genuinely thought Jericho you best walk off, he'll knock you the **** out. Not sure that's great. Sign some 6'9 monsters.
