Re: The AEW Thread

It isn't really wrestling anymore but I've been amused as well. Like no one even seems to be trying to win the match, it's all about just doing cute/entertaining spots and comedy bits. Matt Hardy's schtick is also like a little too far for me as far as accepting silliness in wrestling.

Hangman Page has become my favorite character in AEW though and he's been great here.

god, TNA really had a franchise guy and really, really ****ed it all up. Both of those are worse but yes, Lee is completely out of place as not only that character, but he just isn't a top guy in a stable either, and that stable blows nuts all on top of that.

Re: The AEW Thread

Inner Circle Vs The Elite? Obviously taped and edited. But an entertaining match none the less...

I think that MurderHawk exposed himself in a long match with Cody.

Spears v Dustin entertaining

Glad the women’s title changed hands. But I still think that most of NXT women are better than AEW women.

Moxley v Lee... Ok... but not great. Never was a big Lee/Harper fan.

MJF v Jungle Boy... very good.... not sure how MJF is standing he took that spot on his head on the corner of the ring. He’ll feel that tomorrow.

McMahon is missing an opportunity to spice up the shows by putting some people In the stands to make some noise during the match. He won’t because AEW did it first which is stupid; but this is how he thinks.

Re: The AEW Thread

The PPV was really good, imo. I'm not a fan of Moxley, but don't seem to harbour the hate for the Brodie Lee character that a lot of people do. Top to bottom I thought the PPV delivered (minus the Dustin/Spears match), and MJF is going to be so good in the future.

Dynamite tonight was pretty good as well, but I hate the Mike Tyson stuff. Dude has taken way too many head shots. He's never been coherent, but even less so now.

jericho/inner circle apparently now feuding with tyson/washed up ufc guys (or just retired like cejudo) is super ridiculous.

can kahn do something that *doesn't* look like it's all just him being a fanboy of his childhood.

Re: The AEW Thread

Tyson will get eyeballs on AEW. Any "match" he's going to have with Jericho will be cinematic so they can take the best of multiple takes and cover for Tyson's inexperience in the ring. Since Jericho is involved, it will be wildly entertaining. And some number of people who only tune in to see Tyson will be impressed by the other matches. This is a big moment for AEW.

Re: The AEW Thread

Cody vs Hager...who booked that ****?

Face manager (Arn) distracts ref so another face can run down to the ring and attack the heel (3 on 1 essentially), who no sells the attack and immediately hits the face with his finisher only to be immediately pinned.

Re: The AEW Thread

They've gotta be slow turning Cody. It's been happening for weeks. It would be more effective if that finish happened against a face, though.

I noticed. But I'm far enough out of the loop that I was just confused and wondered if I somehow missed Adam Cole defecting to AEW. Anyway, it's moved.

Wait, Adam Cole is going to AEW?

I would if I were him. There is zero chance he will get a main event push on Raw or Smackdown. In AEW, he's a guaranteed future world champion. Plus, his girlfriend is already there.

Unfortunately, he's been dead in that canon for quite some time...unless they resurrect him and go back to pretending Hangman really did murder Joey Ryan.

Actually, that would definitely be a better storyline.

Re: The AEW Thread

Meh PPV last night - no idea who they'll have Moxley put over for the AEW Title, but really doubt it'll be Lance Archer. Doesn't seem helpful he's gone over every big hoss they have, either

Re: The AEW Thread

Them stopping a last man standing match because Matt Hardy got severely concussed then sending him back out to finish was absolutely disgusting

I just watched the Jericho match out of pure interest of the match type, dreadful.

Have people been keeping up with AEW and has it been good?
