He's got that charismatic X factor, I dig it. The catchphrase stuff is simply fun. Sometimes, simplicity works. He moves the needle.

I don't say this to convince you or anything, just explaining my reasoning.

I realize there's just no agreement to be had here, so carry on.

PAC Andrade 2 was so good. What a finish.

Yeah, that was great.

I found it amusing that when the lights came back on, there were 3 former NXT champions in the ring.

Lance Archer botch was ****ing scary. I hope the injury doesn't turn out to be too bad. Wasn't a great Saturday Night Dynamite overall, but I enjoyed most of it.

im enjoying the different announce teams. i like taz, jericho and punk. actually all the announcers are pretty good imo. i think my fave announce team of the current era was josh matthews and pope, for reference.

the last two shows were better.

ive enjoyed rhodes to the top, but i like most reality tv already.

It appears that there is an 8-man tag on tonight's card.

They seem to have just skipped right over my post here instructing them to ban 8-man tag matches.
10-27-2021 , 03:30 PM
That post I just made reminds me of back in the high-volume days when there were people earnestly posting in Threadzilla about how there may have been people from the WWE sweating our thread and implementing ideas from it.

Great Dynamite so far.
10-27-2021 , 08:52 PM
There's a significant amount of ejaculate in pants across the arena. Not because the run-in itself was exciting, but because they know the words to the song.

Oh, a MINNEAPOLIS street fight.

PIP wrestling during ad breaks was a great idea. But I definitely always stop paying attention to the match until the break is over.
10-27-2021 , 09:10 PM
Lol, I get up and stand close to the screen while puffing my vape.

They’ve cleverly had matches end during PiP before, there’s usually at least a cool piece or two. My only complaint is that the TNT replays don’t have the PiP segments at all.
10-27-2021 , 09:15 PM
Yeah, I knew that had happened, and that's certainly the right thing to have done in order to convince people to stay glued. I just struggle to stay engaged with a match if there's no crowd noise.

Maybe they could find the happy middle by aggressively cutting to PIP break the second the fans start a chant. "THIS IS AWE-" "We're at the movies and we need to silence our phones. Who knows where that button is?"

I don't love Thunder Rosa's prospects to win the tourney from a bye. A babyface winning a tournament with the benefit of a bye hasn't happened since the Wrestling Classic in 1985.

Deeb showing Cargill how to do chairshots right.

I think they missed an opportunity to have another wrestler save Shida, rather than just the refs running out.

She shouldn’t win. She’s gotta take the belt from Britt.

I think Soho, Cargill, and Statlander are possible. I believe Nyla would be a good monster champ like Miro was for the TNT belt.
10-27-2021 , 09:18 PM
I still don't know the whole field super well, but it's surprising to me that Deeb was just first-round cannon fodder.
10-27-2021 , 09:22 PM
Sometimes I'm able to forget that Justin Roberts is out there announcing until he's given the task of saying "Jon."
10-27-2021 , 09:23 PM
I guess I'm a little surprised they can't book Banker's Life Fieldhouse when they come to Indy.
10-27-2021 , 09:24 PM
I'm not a big fan of Moxley, but that was fun.
10-27-2021 , 09:25 PM
Holy **** I missed it, wtf happened

I kinda wanted her to win to keep the feud going. Just continually keep preventing Shida’s 50th win.

What, the blood? He tore at the mask and bit him. Then the camera was just on Mox and the ref for a while. I assume a blade got involved.
10-27-2021 , 09:30 PM
Arn Anderson is on. The whole country needs to stop what they're doing and tune in.
