It wasn't really Miro's fault. Janela was definitely the worst last night. Botched 3 or 4 times.

Joey Nutella might be the worst full time wrestler on any "major" wrestling show on TV right now.

No more or less than pretty much any other wrestler. Not to mention I don't think we ever heard anyone in the WWE including the people she supposedly hurt saying they were legit injuries.

That's a major problem with people when it's a talent they don't like, or even worse, they like the gossip. So they just assume, well of course Nia hurts people look at her! All these dirt turds take their cue from Meltzer and spit it as fact because once upon a time she broke Becky Lynch's nose and made her a star.

My bad Seth Rollins couldn't do the same.

Nia hurt Kairi Sane with fairly basic stuff, like two weeks in a row. And then once before that. She almost dropped Charlotte on her head, going for a shoulder-breaker. She potatoed Becky Lynch so hard it looked like her nose exploded.

Nia is bad. Very bad.

Joey Janela constantly fucks stuff up. Even in that tag-team match with Miro on Wednesday, he was completely out of position to catch Kip Sabian on that dive, he fucked up his part of a crossbody spot, to the point where Miro yelled at him.

And did you forget about how Nutella almost hurt Marko Stunt doing something stupid? Or when he tried some overly-complicated spot where he walked across his opponent's backs in a tag-team match and he just fell off on his ass?

Yeah.

I'm not "being worked".

Nia Jax and Joey Nutella are two of the worst wrestlers in a "major" promotion right now.

Did Kairi or anyone from the WWE ever confirm Nia Jax hurt her? Nope. Again, you're getting worked brother.

It's wrestling. You cats out there that pick and choose who you want to claim is unsafe need to check your ID, see that you're about 40, and this shit is not for the weak. It might LOOK like Nia blasted Sane or fucked up Vega, but that's the point. Please don't watch any Japanese wrestling, I can only imagine how realistic you think that is.

Dude I'm not even speaking on Joey Janella. I have seen more stunts with him and Super Humman on Instagram than matches and to say this guy is somehow one of the absolute worst in the world among major promotions is probably not correct considering the amount of shitty wrestlers in just WWE there is lol.

You're being worked. Everything you and others say is regurgitated dirt sheet talk and/or thinking you're smart. Yeah, Nia broke Becky's nose and made Becky a mega star. Too bad when Rollins did it to Cena, that dude was already the man. I mean, I think Austin owes a lot of his success to Owen botching that inverted tombstone. Glass half full dude.

Pretty much Miro's been strictly WWE. He worked for a few small promotions for about a year before signing with the WWE in 2010.

With Cornette A-he probably wasn't a big fan of Rusev in WWE and B-he's shitting on the tag match from last week which did fucking suck. I don't think he shit on Miro too much, it was mostly Joey Janella and Sonny Kiss that he shit on.

Brodie Lee....Again he probably wasn't a fan of what he saw in WWE-if he saw anything. Or he just doesn't think he's very good. I agree with some of the stuff people do say about how these big dudes in AEW wrestling like Kenny Omega flying around and shit just makes no sense or having competitive matches with talent half their size.....

Knowing Matt, it's going to Maxell, Wolfgang, and Senior Benjamin who attacked him, thus setting up a 1 on 3 match at the next PPV. The match will take place entirely in a row boat.

Fell asleep after dinner, only caught the last hour of the show.

Not great.

-- I hate that they're wasting FTR in a feud with The Best Jackasses. Trent and Chuck should be a team that puts new guys over. The absolute bottom rung of the tag-team ladder. Jobbers to the stars. The best and brightest of the bottom of the barrel. Instead, they're getting a featured spot in a feud with one of the best in-ring teams in wrestling. FTR's going to drag these two idiots kicking and screaming into a passable match, that doesn't involve boards, pipes, chains, and crashing through car windshields -- but FTR should be doing so much more with a better team.

I know they're probably stuck in Japan because of Covid, but FTR vs. The Strong Hearts would be a fantastic TV feud.

-- Orange Cassidy vs. Dark Order 10 was... who cares? Not awful, not great. Perfectly good for an Orange Cassidy match. I guess we just have to accept it, AEW thinks Orange Cassidy is legitimately "elevated" now. He's still a sucky wrestler. Jim Cornette was absolutely right, Orange Cassidy hits the ropes in a profoundly strange way, compared to every other wrestler in the company. I don't know about you, but whatever that reverse piledriver thing was, I wouldn't want Orange Cassidy putting that on me.

-- Britt Baker is great. I love everything about her until that damn bell has to ring. She still needs work bell-to-bell. I feel like Red Velvet was supposed to take that curb stomp thing Britt was trying for to the mouth, since that's all about Britt's gimmick. But she didn't clue into it and just whiplashed herself twice.

-- Jon Moxley vs. The Butcher wasn't bad. But man, you could tell 'ol Every Time I Die gassed out quick. He was moving with all the urgency of a guy going to the electric chair. And when he couldn't get that stretch muffler on and just had to drop it, that killed it for me. The Butcher is a decent big man heater for his tag-team. But its obvious, of the two, Blade is the worker. This one was a slow one. And who the Hell thought the key to this match was to have Butcher, not known for his technical submission prowess, work Mox's leg over? This should have been a violent, smash mouth brawl, not Butcher playing amateur Ric Flair.

Eh. Either way, Mox wins and that's fine. Looking forward to Mox/Archer. I never saw their Japan match, but I heard it's good stuff.

Spudz Mackenzie
September 30th, 2020, 10:44 PM
Oh, and I can't comment on it too much, because I was still in a sleepy haze when it happened, but who in their right mind ever thought they'd see Billy F'n Mitchell on a wrestling show?

He's a Z-list "celebrity", who's more famous for cheating and suing anyone who looks at him cross eyed than anything, but he's exactly the kind of guy I'd expect AEW to get. Carny as fuck and somebody WWE wouldn't even "get".

He's the Eric Bischoff or Paul Heyman of the hi-score arcade championship world. An absolutely fascinating character. And he's a legitimate hot sauce millionaire. I hope he gets added to the crew with Miro, Sabian, and Ford. He'd make a great scuzzball manager.

Nash Diesel

They never had a singles match. All that they had was that giant multi-man stadium match. Then Matt had a couple matches with Sammy then got hurt. If you watched last week then how can you think that Matt is some other possible feud?

Jericho and Swagger were backstage when Matt was attacked. Then Jericho and Swagger face off against Private Party, who are "managed" by Matt. Then The Inner Circle interrupts a segment with Matt Hardy and Private Party.

They don't gel. LAX trying to do comedy is ridiculous. Swagger just seems to be there because he's tall. I do enjoy Jericho and Sammy but they don't need the other 3 to make it work. I get that stables 9/10 times don't form via some 7 part Marvel movie plan but this was odd when it was formed and now that they've been going for about a year it doesn't really make any sense as to why they're a stable. Jericho could've surrounded himself with someone better than Swagger for one.

Seems like Dynamite has been hit or miss lately with their opening matches but Starks/Allin was a good one. It comes across to me that Allin is showing some more diversity in terms of how he'll work. He'll be aerial, he'll sacrifice his body, but he'll hit you with some solid technical or submission work. A well-rounded Allin is something I can get behind. Starks kind of got shown up over the course of the match, which was moderately surprising.

Cody's promo didn't do a whole lot for me in the early portion but it was better in the finishing section. The chaos at the end, while borderline excessive, made sense for all of the moving parts supporting both sides.

Really entertaining tag title match. Thought they did a nice job to create some moments where SCU looked like they could have gotten the win. FTR was great at playing their role. Blanchard tipping the scales in their favor, with FTR's penchant for bending the rules, will eventually make it that more gratifying when a team takes them down.

It always makes me chuckle when people hit Codebreakers better than Jericho so it was pretty funny to me that Kassidy hit an extra proper one on Jericho. Certainly seems blatant now that Jericho is in the business of building others up, now that the title is not in his sights. That's fine with me. The continued banter between Jericho and MJF was once again entertaining.

Seems like the ring rust wasn't present for Britt, which is great.

Meh main event. Not Moxley's fault. Butcher seemed incredibly limited.

Ohhh. Well in that case he probably could have done well. The sky is the limit when your 22ish with a strong wrestling background. If he learned some BJJ and striking to compliment his wresting, he definitely could have been a top guy. Brock had a great stint in the UFC and he was basically just a wrestler lol.

That's what made him who he is. Blessing and a curse. You lose all the time nobody buys you as a credible opponent. I mean, in the world of AEW, Jericho putting people over feels like when Terry Funk would do the job to people in ECW. It's almost exactly like Terry Funk, a guy who doesn't suck but is too old and had too many losses putting over everyone that you beat him and it was like, eh, it's a nice name to have.

I do like his back and forth with MJF but that's going to be something we see down the road. Neither guy should be a babyface, they'll fucking ruin them both turning them, especially MJF. Maybe after Jericho v. Matt Hardy is over.

Opener was fine but it felt like it was lacking a lot in terms of substance or something other than going spot to spot to spot until it was time to go home.

Harold Meij was out for NJPW and we got Tanahashi and a Wrestle Kingdom reference. At least Archer was talking for himself in the build with Moxley. Roberts was probably good for an entry point for Archer but I don't think that duo needs to stay together. Moxley was good with his promo. I do like the off-site setups AEW has for their promos. They can be kind of hokey but they're more prone to help accentuate the tone of the character.

FTR has been able to work with different types of teams in AEW but this match, for some reason felt like a bridge too far in terms of contrasting styles.

TNT title match was very compelling. It was a grueling brawl. Having a cool table spot during PiP probably is less than ideal. I liked how the two parties came out after the match, kind of in awe of what they saw but not mixing it up more than they had to. Cody had a great promo after the fact. He's usually really great when he speaks from the heart and the emotion is cranked up. Should be a good match next week.

Women's match...ugh.

Could not care less about the main event. It's tired routine Jericho has done with the bit of teasing a blowup with someone only to be a ruse...but it's still entertaining lol.

Props to AEW for giving Luke Harper a reign 1 week longer than he had with the IC title back in WWE. Really showing that prick Vince how it's done.

FTR, imo, will go down as one of the best tag-teams of all time. Especially the last decade and the next decade to come. This match was not the greatest but I could watch them against anyone. I literally just watched Billy and Chuck v. Mark Henry and Randy Orton on Velocity for the tag belts, we've seen worse lol.

Should have had Brodie with a lengthy run. Week after week of decisive wins against opponents. Then have him drop it in a triple threat match, maybe with Cody and Orange Cassidy. Have Cody pin Orange Cassidy, and Brodie says he was never pinned he should still be champion. And then Cody puts it on the line against him, and beats him. But for Cody to just come back a month later and win, not a fan of that. I think a returning Cody, who says maybe I'm not good enough to be here would have been a good return. He could start small, maybe beat jobbers like Colt Cabana, Tye Dillinger, and even revisit a Goldust feud. Winning these matches gives him his confidence back, and then you can have him fight someone bigger like Jericho or Brian Cage a month before he faces Brodie Lee in that tripel threat.

The only thing I honestly do not like about Cody is the guy is such a mark for himself. He reminds me more of Jeff Jarrett than his idol Triple H. Cody wasn't a top guy in WWE so he went to places where he could be a top guy due to the lack of name value and audience. Now he started his own company because he was never going to be a top guy in the big 2 (WWE and NJPW).

And who told his wife we needed an action figure of her?

This would have worked. *IF* Brodie's performances hadn't gone to prove that, as so many say over the decades, that Vince was right. We've seen Brodie Lee against some of the very best recently, not that we didn't before, and lets face it, he's just not very good! Sure, the dude can talk, but he can't emote, and he is dead weight in the ring.

I believe that was his shot, and he blew it bigtime. They did the right thing. Cody is very versatile, and the TNT title is the one that matters more than ever right now with live shows out of the equation. So get it back to the guy who can really go and make it look good.

That's not true at all about Triple H. He was well on his way to being a top tier main event before he was with Stephanie. If people want to act like this guy didn't climb from the bottom to the top, be the scapegoat for the Klik where he lost a year of his push to Stone Cold back in 1996, then at the very least be realistic. If anything it was his relationship with the Klik which lead to him having a great relationship with Vince, well before he started dating Stephanie.

He didn't leave and go start a company with some other dude's money and make himself a top guy like Cody did. Yeah, he's smart by not making himself WORLD champion. But he did build an entire tournament around him winning their other title that gets defended every single week.

I'm not taking anything away from Cody's skillset. I'm just not a fan of how he and others (like you) pretend like this guy isn't a mark for himself. If he's the face of the franchise it isn't because he's the most popular guy there.

Well, if AEW are as smart as they think they are it'll be simple. Turn Cody heel, and have him acknowledge the reality that he's one of the main people who make all the decisions. He comes out and simply says "Because I can" and we're off to the races. Or he'll win some match where his opportunity can be reinstated. I would personally go with the first one and play on people's assumptions the same way Triple H did.

Pretty sure he along with Young Bucks have put their own money into it to get it going too.

Don’t get me wrong Triple H probably still would’ve have good upper card/main event career but wouldn’t had been at the top as long as he was if he didn’t have his daddy in laws pull.

I'm pretty sure that a billionaire's dad is who's money is truly in this thing. I could be wrong. At one point the Jarretts were who put their money into NWA-TNA.

Do we know for sure that Triple H wasn't going to be on top as long as he was? Again, if we're being realistic, it had more to do with his relationship with Vince during the Klik era than anything. Him marrying Stephanie felt like an arranged marriage. The guy who the king wants to hand the keys to the castle marrying his only daughter...?

Trust me guy, I used to work for a family owned business that made vending machines. I know all about the top salesman marrying one of the owner's daughters. If Triple H was some jabroni that nobody was cheering/booing, sure, you'd have a point. But he delivered more often than not. Yeah, he had like 1 year that was pretty whack where he was the top guy, but he wasn't the only one that was whack (say mid 2002-WM 19).

In terms of him as a full time wrestler trust me dude I was saying the same shit not even 10 years ago. Over time though I realized that the whole "He married Steph that's why he was on top for so long" is just nonsense. Again, the guy had to deliver if you think he didn't as a main eventer then you're delusional.

Chris Scott
October 12th, 2020, 1:24 PM

I'm not the one pretending like I have firsthand knowledge of some mythical conversations Triple H had with Vince lol.

He was hot until he dropped the title to Hogan. One of the loudest pops in WWE history was his return from the first quad injury. Again, I was in the same boat as you when I was ignorant. I can agree about certain moments that he should have lost but I also see the flipside of why he won. Even the WM 19 win over Booker T, I understood that win because it lead to Evolution and all these other little things that Cewsh of all people broke down for me years ago.

You keep on mentioning the before Stephanie stuff but in my opinion he was just Shawn’s lackey sucking up to vince that way, then the whole thing was complete that he married his daughter and it all worked out just fine for him :wink:

What wrestlers? The ones that didn't get very far up the card so they're looking for anyone to blame? Sure I'll buy that. I'd love to know what wrestlers you are speaking on. What youtube headline reads "Midcarder owns up to the fact they weren't that good"? No it's "Headbanger Mosh says Triple H held him down!"

Come on fella, watch anything of Triple H before Stephanie and tell me that guy wasn't destined for a main event career. Again, he had to deliver. He was delivering well before he dated Stephanie. Did you forgot about DX in 1998? Or his feud with Mankind. Or his work in the IC title division with Mero, Goldust, etc?

I get it. It's cool to hold on to that outdated, ignorant mentality that Triple H married into a legacy but he was destined for that push the moment he signed. He showed he was willing to do what it takes to show the fans and the promoter that he was worthy of that top spot and he lived up to it. Nobody is going back watching Triple H v. Cactus Jack at the Rumble 2000 saying "Triple H is only great in this feud because of who he's married to!"

He put plenty of people over. Look at his win/loss record. Look at the storylines. I know it's a tough pill to swallow that he's not as bad as everyone thinks he is. It's low hanging fruit to bash the guy and assume he's only where he is because of who he's married to. Every wrestler who says that sounds so butthurt about their own career and you also have to consider who is talking this shit. People who weren't really around him or had zero to do with booking the show.

Jim Cornette pretty much echoes everything I've said about Triple H and why he is where he is. And that guy doesn't seem to care one bit about Triple H, well before he married Stephanie.

I'm curious as to what he would've accomplished if he didn't have family issues that pulled him out of the business. Kind of reminds me of when Ahmed Johnson abruptly quit back in the day. Just out of nowhere something happened and they had to bounce to take care of the family.

I will say this, didn't realize how short he was until he came to WWECW.

Nash Diesel

While I do think it's a little over the top to consider the MLW tv deal anything to even mention because it's like when OVW had a tv deal with public access back in 2004, you do have a point.

In this day and age it's almost like if you weren't in some way established in WWE, then in AEW you're homegrown lol. MJF is a little difficult, wasn't he on the Austin podcast before AEW even existed? I could be wrong. He had some buzz for sure, same with Orange Cassidy.

What about Jungle Boy? Would he be considered homegrown or does it ultimately come down to you have to literally start from scratch with that promotion? Or can it be someone who was never over, nobody knew them, then they got big in a larger promotion? Kind of like minor league sports teams, if someone is a big name for a minor league team in Knoxville, TN but then becomes an even bigger name worldwide due to playing for a pro team, do we credit the farm league or do we credit the big club?

I'm not "so disappointed" I'm just being a veteran fan who looks for more than just what is presented and go "OH AWESOME". Doesn't work with WWE, shouldn't work for AEW. Or any promotion.

AEW is still trying to find their identity imo. Imagine thinking TNA in year one was going to be TNA in year five. But again, it's impossible for fans who are my age who have been watching it this long to watch it the same way we did when we were 8 or if we were just some casual fan hopping in and out because it's on. It's like expecting a 40 year old comic book nerd to accept a revamped Night Thrasher because it's what Marvel is doing now. Fuck that.

AEW can do better. They're already doing one major thing right: Kenny Omega as a top singles guy. I guess the jury's still out, if he's not champ after Ambrose they shit the bed. They gotta keep it hot. Gotta be a top tier player not just some dude who Tony EWR's into a spot. He just needs a manager because his promo ability is borderline early Cesaro.

I knew you weren't AEW's biggest fan, but I didn't think you thought it sucks more often than not. I haven't agreed with every decision they've made (like taking the TV title off Brodie after only a month), but what I like about the company is that there's an honesty to it. They're doing what they love and you can see it in the kinds of storylines and segments that get produced. When someone like Eddie Kingston cuts a promo, you can tell it's from the heart. And it was Matt Hardy's idea to mentor Private Party because he saw potential in them. That doesn't mean they don't pander to fans. Jericho was quick to sell bottles of "A Little Bit of the Bubbly" on his website and makes a nice little profit. While it's not perfect, I get a genuine good feeling when watching AEW which is something that I haven't gotten from American wrestling in a very long time.

I would add that a million viewers is really good considering wrestling isn't hot right now and the promotion is brand new. I don't know if they've peaked yet or still have room to grow their audience, but I would call this a success.

Not comparing it to anything other than reality. I will elaborate more below but being content with losing that % of your fanbase and not being able to recover like you did in the past when the numbers were the same (check the ratings for Raw in 1993-1996). No company is happy with that but obviously we're talking about a company (WWE) who has about 100 more tv deals across the planet and are literally their own shit in comparison to every other wrestling company. Why? They're not a wrestling company anymore.

I'm just being real. Like I said, I watch it through a different lens than most because I have been a huge fan for over 30 years. I dove head first into music and pro wrestling when I was like 6 and had older friends who in 1995 were exposing me to everything under the sun thanks to them having internet in college lol.

It's also a mood thing. I have gone back and watched matches that I originally thought were awesome and I'm like, I really liked that whack shit? And like I said, AEW is still trying to find their identity. Some fans are hypnotized with their praise because I truly believe it's due to it being fresh. It's not completely different for obvious reasons but that's perfectly fine, it's FRESH. Unfortunately as I keep saying I've been watching it so long and I'm too old to play pretend mentally like I did when I was 9 or even 15 with the nWo coming in.

Trust me, I'm definitely a fan who makes excuses but a million is not good. And the excuse we use isn't exactly positive lol. "Well yeah I mean 10 million people used to like it but it's ok if only 2-3 million do now" What company is happy with losing that % of their customers? Imagine Pepsi saying, well, at least people are still drinking soda. Truth is we don't really know how many are watching with the 90 ways you can watch in 2020 but I still think it doesn't matter what era you're in, if the shit's good it's good. Explain to me how shows like Law and Order can still bang out 20-30 million viewers for 25 years consistently? If the shit is hot it's hot. Rap music wouldn't have a platform if only a million records were sold a year.




Anyone think Wardlow looks a tad like Joey Abs? They could pass as cousins or brothers even, lol.

Long ass story short. I'm a big fan of AEW and that's why I am critical of them to a certain degree. That's just how I am when I want something to succeed. Whether that's my kids, music, pro wrestling, how I do at my job, etc.

If we just talk about the Glee segment we saw, personally it's not that big of a fucking deal lol. It's another corny segment in pro wrestling we can shit for years to come or people can defend for years to come. You don't think people were shitting on This Is Your Life or the other skits in the 90's or the weird shit in the 80's? Of course they did. Segments like this will no doubt divide fans. That doesn't mean if you didn't like this segment you don't like comedy in wrestling, some shit just doesn't appeal to people. When I watch Empire, I love it, but half the shit is so corny I'm like man, why do I still watch it?? Or most of my favorite sports teams.... :(

I think my only real gripe is the people who watch AEW feel like they don't owe it to themselves to objective. They want this to be so awesome and so much better than WWE which is why 99% of them can't stop themselves from saying things like, "Well look at WWE's ratings" So what? They own the market, fuck the US they own the global market of pro wrestling EASILY.

We have a company who right now is more focused on comedy spots and bullshit than making Jon Moxley the centerpiece. If you're not fuckin with Jericho, you're #2 and a distant #2. People want to compare them to WWE well here you have WWE's go to job guy getting heavy rotation like it's 1993 and radio still won't let go of Motley Crue and replace them with Nirvana. Not saying Motley didn't have a purpose in the early 90's just like Jericho has a purpose in this era no doubt he's fucking brilliant....but when you're not really putting much effort into your World title picture I think you need to start.

Kenny Omega is the answer. I think he's the missing piece in the main event scene. Wasting away in a tag-team. It's his time to really shine.

JuveLeo
October 23rd, 2020, 2:50 PM
I agree about the Kenny Omega stuff. Everyone thought when AEW was created that Omega would be the guy, but he's basically been a background guy. Yes, he's been a tag champ, but i really do believe that he's at his absolute best when he's a singles wrestler. He needs more focus and i think he will when he wins the number 1 contender tournament. Also, i think Omega as a heel is considerably better than a face.

I said it earlier but what will hold him back is his promos. This isn't Japan where promos are 3rd-4th down the line. North American and Western European fans that they are trying to appeal to are not going to just go "Eh but he's so good who cares if he sucks on the mic" I remember pre-WWE Bryan Danielson, nobody gave that guy a shot in the WWE because he didn't show enough personality in ROH. He was Bob Backlund 2.0 and it did take him a year or so on the main roster and the stories that he fell into that helped him build up his skills and be more than the best in the world.

I believe that if you have talkers like Jericho, Moxley, plus the OG's like Tully, Arn, and Jake the Snake, you shouldn't have any issue with learning and improving unless that's the best you can do. If you can't sit down with Goldust and learn something you're fucked. Or even a guy like Cody, dude has been money on the mic since he helped induct his father into the HOF.

The refs are too busy trying to be a part of the show rather than actually be officials. Aubrey was caught off guard w/ the Matt Hardy incident w/ Sammy and she didn't know how the hell to handle the situation. She froze, called the match but they continued anyway and she didn't do a damn thing. Rick Knox though, I don't know how he didn't notice Reynolds being unconscious, just lying there like that. Scary stuff.

AEW needs to sit their refs down and tell them they need to remember their training on how to be referees not performers because they're going to let someone fall on their head and they won't know what to do. Oh wait they've already done that.

It's an extreme example but it's easy. I'm not going to sit here and break it down to where "AEW" doesn't get any blame so the blind marks can feel better. They're the first ones who would be shitting on WWE for the exact same scenario.

Of course it could happen to any company and that company would be blamed as a whole. It was the talent, the ref, and the company who are at fault. But ultimately it's AEW who takes the blame because it happened on their watch. Just like when Owen Hart died and WWE were sued.

It was an accident in that one instance. In my work place if I have an accident involving someone else, Ed Iíd be pissed off but you canít exactly say it was my whole companyís fault.

Bloody wwe fanboys looking for any excuse to have a go at the company :rolleyes:

PAC will be "breaking his silence" next Wed on Dynamite. I don't know if he'll be there in person or if it will just be another video. I've seen people speculating Fenix will break away from the Family and join him which would be fine with me. Just need a third person to bring back TRIANGULO DE LA MUERTE!

YES KENNY OMEGA the cleaner

chatty
November 1st, 2020, 6:08 PM
I agree about the Kenny Omega stuff. Everyone thought when AEW was created that Omega would be the guy, but he's basically been a background guy. Yes, he's been a tag champ, but i really do believe that he's at his absolute best when he's a singles wrestler. He needs more focus and i think he will when he wins the number 1 contender tournament. Also, i think Omega as a heel is considerably better than a face.

I think he should lose to Page then turn heel and attacking Page v Moxley. Page v Moxley is another fresh feud evn if it only lasts a month and Id rather Kenny and Moxley have a bit kore time apart before they go round again. Also I font think Omega is there yet in terms of being over, he'll be better as a heel so let Page go over him, turn Kenny, let them feud for a few months, Omega comes out the winner and then goes after Moxley, hopefully when crowds are starting to fill back up more.

Nash Diesel
November 2nd, 2020, 12:01 PM
The longer they keep pushing Omega like a midcarder the harder it's going to be for him to transition as a top guy. The guy is not getting any younger. They've already watered him down considerably. Adam Page is 29 years old and if AEW are in it for the long haul then they have plenty of time with him because let's be honest, he himself isn't ready for that main event level push even in AEW. I'd be having Page building himself up in the TNT title picture.

If Omega isn't who dethrones Moxley then I'm not sure who will. Nobody has the total package better than Moxley but the booking doesn't reflect that. Honestly, the way they book the show they should just put it back on Le Champion.

Chris Scott
November 2nd, 2020, 2:04 PM
Meh I think Kenny has been fine his past years run. I have no doubts he’ll be built up to finally be the one to take the title of Moxley, probably win it to see 2020 out.

You were fine with one of their top guys coming in to AEW being put in a tag-team that had zero memorable feuds? I've made it crystal Pepsi clear on how I feel about the way AEW have handled Kenny Omega. Imagine if they signed Moxley and for the last year he was in a tag-team with Shawn Spears.......

I'd be shocked, pleasantly shocked, if Kenny did what you're saying. I guess my issue is why did we have to waste the last 10-11 months on Kenny Omega and Adam Page at the top of the tag-team mountain when obviously they're better as singles wrestlers. This huge roster of solid tag-teams, including the Bucks, having to play backup dancers to a couple singles stars. I don't get the mentality but I also stopped booking wrestling in EWR about 15 years ago.

Good because that was the only part that was truly important lol.

I have a good feeling about year two for AEW. More original talent (i.e. non-established WWE wrestlers) establishing a place in the company. We now have a real tag-team at the top of the mountain and it's a team you can build the next 3-5 years around easily. The main event picture is what it is. I think if they split up the Lucha Bros you have Pentagon who could definitely make waves in the World title picture as a quasi-heel, Fenix in the mix as a top babyface would be incredible.

Another glaring issue for me is Cody in the TNT title picture. Another misplaced talent. He should no doubt be in the main event lurking around the World title until they figure out a way to via storyline get him a title match and win the damn thing. If anyone should take the title off Moxley not named Kenny Omega it's heel Cody Rhodes. I'd rather AEW build that division around people like MJF than Cody.

I've said this a hundred times, but man, Eddie Kingston is really gifted on the mic. Him and Mox had a really great segment.

I would give anything for Eddie Kingston to be as good in the ring as he is on the mic. If he didn't look like a city bus driver and wrestle worse than Hogan in his 50's I'd say put the strap on him.

Sasori
November 5th, 2020, 3:47 PM
I haven't seen much of Eddie in the ring (can't even remember anything he did in Impact), but his first match with Moxley was pretty good. I have high hopes for their match on Saturday.

If he had a good build he could seriously have the potential of being a superstar. But that's AEW. The majority of the guys are short and look average.

I've been following this man for almost 15 years and I've always admired his promo ability. He stood out like a sore thumb in CHIKARA because nobody could cut a promo for shit. I just never cared for his wrestling. I can tolerate it, but if we're talking about someone feuding with Moxley in what is to be perceived as a legit top tier organization with a WORLD champion, not just by name but actually defending outside of the US, unfortunately I don't see him getting that nod. If they want to have him be a mouthpiece for Pentagon, fuck yeah, that dude should be champion if that's the case. Cool look, awesome wrestler, with Kingston by his side?

Man, Eddie Kingston's AEW run has been fantastic. It makes me really happy to see him get some shine like this in a big promotion towards what is presumably the twilight of his career. I can't wait for him vs. Mox. Great build. High hopes for the match.

Dynamite has been on a roll in general the last few months so I'm hoping this PPV is a return to form after the pretty lacklustre All Out.

Curious about this comment. Do you think he'd be a good World champion and if so, based on what? Dude is great on the mic but outside of that I don't know if him being the heir to the throne is something people would be happy about. Kingston of all people beating Moxley? It wouldn't be the worst booking decision of 2020 but I just don't see it.

I haven't seen too many pro-Eddie fans for this match so genuinely curious.

I dunno man I just love the guy since he came in, Has built up a hell of a story and would be a nice change of pace.
I mean sure his Mic skills outweigh his traditional 'wrestling abilities' but he is more than good enough and can tell a story in ring as well as verbally.

For me it has always came down to wrestling ability. He's the guy who works well in a stable because he can shine as the mouthpiece AND work but he isn't the TOP GUY. When I watch New Day, personally I think Woods is one of the best people on the mic in wrestling period but I don't see him as a World champion. I could very well be proven wrong just like with Eddie Kingston.

Mox definitely has a rogue's gallery of opponents in wrestling. I'd really like to see a rematch with Minoru Suzuki happen in a Western promotion especially here in the US.
