He was also injured in the beating he took leading up to his tag match at Mania with Daniel Bryan. Didn't he also survive a helicopter crash around this time?? LOL.

But yeah, I've heard of more injuries happening doing basic shit like a clothesline. Look at Triple H. Tore his fuckin quad doing a clothesline. Nash-tore his quad the 123rd time getting tagged in and "jogging" to his opponent.

Rarely do we get what happened to Hayabusa. Even Lesnar survived a Shooting Star Press.

Injuries are weird and can come from nowhere. Boxed for years and never injured myself doing it once bar having bruised hands. Played football years and injured myself loads, usually of ridiculous things, played as a defender for years, getting into physical battles, throwing bigger guys about, wrestling the lot, absolutely did my ankle though just simply chipping a ball and putting my foot down at a weird angle and twisting it bad.

Did my shoulder lifting a kettle bell where my technique was slightly out, wasn't even heavy, just miss timed it and boom shoulder was out for about eight months

Played rugby as a kid and did my shoulder not by tackling people but by overstretching for a ball.

These are much better athletes than I've ever been but I can defo see them getting injured doing lesser moves than the big spots. Think it's just sometimes you aren't prepared for something to go wrong doing something basic and your body doesn't act accordingly whereas for big things your me tally prepped and you body follows.

I skateboarded and ride dirt bikes for most of my youth. Worst injuries were scrapes and I broke my nose a few times.

At 25, I pulled a muscle in my chest yawning and that shit hurt so bad I thought I was having a fucking heart attack. Took me weeks to recover, like what the actual fuck.

Thats kinda wild that you’ve never seen Rocky wrestle before. Nothing against you or anything, it’s really just wild. Rocky has been around for so long and worked every major company not name WWE...I didn’t think there was any longtime fan who hadn’t seen Romero before.

He's a good "wrestler" wrestler and I wouldn't be surprised to hear he's a highlight of New Japan shows. He's a guy who is great on the mat but not as raw as Tom Lawlor and he has a shootstyle kicks and grappling style like Bryan Danielson but he's not as psychologically masterful as Danielson. His speed and bravado are really what sets him apart.

That said, he had a really good match with Lawlor in MLW last year and he had some good matches with Danielson back in the day and I think they're all available on youtube. Too be honest, we all kind of thought he would take off as our great luchador under the Black Tiger mask but nothing really happened. Even the Havana Pitbulls tag team with Ricky Reyes kinda fizzled out. The Pitbulls vs Briscoes and Joe+Briscoes vs Homicide+Pitbulls matches were really great, i think Tainted Eclipse's Ring of Honor thread goes over more of his matches than anywhere else on the internet.

Britt Baker is the most WWE talent in AEW right now that has never worked there full time. Personally I don't like her look, gimmick, finish, BUT I do understand why she is getting a push and why there are people who think the right move is to put the belt on her. I agree, she should be champion. For what she's trying to accomplish I'm sure it works, it got a little too corny 1995 WWF for me with the dentist element being brought in. Who wants to be a wrestler when you can a make a killing doing the most feared occupation in the world (to me, I hate the dentist).

Shida is dope but she's so much better than everyone it's almost like they need to take the belt off her to make the rest of the division look decent. Lower the bar a little with Britt as the champ, that makes matches with Conti, Nyla Jax, Red Velvet, Jade, etc. look more "realistic". Shida wrestles these women and it's hard for them to keep up. It's like watching Asuka wrestling Liv Morgan and Peyton Royce in NXT. Not everyone is a Kurt Angle or Shawn Michaels where they can make the greenest and/or shittiest talent look incredible-that's a tough skill very very few wrestlers have-especially today not named AJ Styles.

Sasori
May 28th, 2021, 9:36 PM
Conti had no trouble keeping up with Shida. It's also not a step down to put the title on Baker. She's had some great matches including the Lights Out match which people still talk about. As good as Shida is, she's doing nothing to get fans excited for the division. With Baker as champ, it will get more attention.

It's so great to hear a crowd. That girl can stop screaming whenever though.

I've only been in big crowds for things a couple of times. It can be easy to get overwhelmed with all those people around. One person starts yelling, then other people start cheering. It is anarchy! This was a good gauge at how over people are. Miro doing his best to not get too caught up and keep doing heel stuff. Britt Baker getting that pretty loud pop. As well as appreciative chants for Shida. Singing along to Judas. Seemed like a fun atmosphere.

For some reason, I'm feeling they will have Baker lose in an Austin/Bret type of way where she is a bloody mess and passes out. That way they can give Shida a champ win in front of people, Baker still looks like a lunatic, and they can still advance the angle a little further. Maybe hold off on a title change on Dynamite to juice those ratings since someone said earlier Shida's matches seem to be high drawing segments.

I still want to see an evil Riho vs Yakuza Shida, but maybe that's something they can program as a video game option.

Weigh-in segment was weird and took too long. You'd think if they were going to have Paul Wight messing around with the scale, they'd practice the bit first so it wouldn't be so awkward. And it seemed like they were stalling for a bit to get heat. Meh. I really don't see Agogogo going anywhere, and you know Cody's going to be gone for a bit for paternity leave, but without him, this whole Nightmare feud has nothing.

Inner Circle/PInnacle seems ripe for a betrayal with all this heartfelt "brother" stuff. Jericho said from the very beginning, they haven't turned on each other or hit each other with their finishes. And if he's going to be gone for a while, it makes more sense to have break them up. Santana and Ortiz can fight for the tag titles, get Sammy in the TNT title hunt, and have Hager do Hager things. But, you can't really have a sold stable lose the same match twice, but it would put Pinnacle over more. I guess I'm glad I can't predict how they'll go with it :)

Her in ring work has improved since 2019 and she's undoubtedly the best on the mic in the women's division as well. Although i don't mind Shida retaining, I do think it's good move if Baker wins.

May 29th, 2021, 7:06 PM
Shida’s run and matches have been great but yeah I’m ready for a bit of a shake up with Britt becoming champion.

Once Hangman probably overcomes Cage at Double or Nothing, I feel they may start on a run up to him and Omega at this time.

The Inner Circle losing and splitting up would probably be okay as they can do fine separately if they went that route but still leaning on them winning this one given Pinnacle got the last laugh and they’ve brought up how Inner Circle lost the Stampede match last time. Maybe a rubber match down the road?

Guessing Cody’s probably going over Ogogo but this angle’s weird and a bit backwards and that’s with Cody being smug. You’d think they’d have Ogogo as the roadblock between him and QT but it’s like they’ve reversed it when he beat QT earlier.

Also random question and this going way back to the Shaq disappearing in the ambulance but was that ever explained in an article somewhere as to why they did that?

Interesting that I went above and beyond mentioning AEW dropping the ball with Jungle Boy and boom, wins the battle royale.

Everything else was predictable, not necessarily in a bad way. I didn't see a single match going down any differently than it did-why would it?

The only negative I could take away from the entire show was the end of Miro-Archer. I was never a fan of Archer until he started teaming up with Davey Boy Smith Jr and I felt that was a strong role for him. In AEW, it's just bad timing I guess. They weren't going to have Miro drop the title less than a month after winning it.

Good show, not great. I still think AEW's PPVs are extremely long. They need to cut an hour at least. I was losing interest during the last 2 or 3 matches.

Let's be honest. AEW hates Adam Page. They give him these nothing wins against nobodies like Brian Cage who couldn't even beat Sting. They put him in the first ever World title match, jobs to old man Jericho. Spends a year in a pointless tag-team and when they break up what happens? Kenny the Meltzer Deepthroat Driver 69 Me Don Omega wins the World title and Page is jerking off with the Dork Order lol.

He's done brother. You'll see the new Adam Page aka Brandon Cutler get the shot before he does. It's true. Page never did anything on his own but that one time they set him up against Jericho-and then did zero with him after because they knew his status was simply riding the coattails of The Bullet Club.

As a casual fan of AEW, i'm casually interested in Hangman Page. I've heard he's the shit, but i haven't been impressed by him. I do wish to see more of him as a whiskey drinking good guy is my kinda whiskey drinking good guy

I don't question the bookers for not shooting him up. They seem to be doing alright at keeping things interesting in their main event scene. I'd take anyone over Omega at this point, but i understand him getting his time to shine.

If he can kick ass all the way to the top, i say book it

He's done in the same way Jungle Boy was done. Long term storytelling.

LOL, is that the excuse? Long term storytelling? Ok.

We all know the reason Jungle Boi won this weekend is due to all of us collectively questioning Cocaine Kahn's reasoning for killing the push they had going for him.

If the long term storytelling for Page is let's just put this guy in the dumbest fucking situations possible and then we'll get him back on track...They're doing a great job. I guess that's the excuse we should use for all promotions, WWE has a lot of long term storytelling going on I guess lol.

They should just say fuck it and do it now. -1 is already the same size as PAC and OC.

Actually I think they should form a new Dork Order with -1 as the leader and he has Goldberg's son and the kid who won the tag belts with Strowman.

Maybe now that Strowman is gone from WWE he can join the Dork Order and him and -1 can win the tag gold from the Young Bucks.....? God damn @Donald (https://forums.rajah.com/member.php?u=69606) I can't wait until Strowman is in AEW and suddenly everyone is on his dick like you've been this entire time.

AEW actually cares about their tag titles.

Once upon a time so did the WWE. And I question how much they actually care about them when Kenny Omega and Adam Page were not a tag-team prior, ever, and yet held the titles for almost a year before losing them to the people who book the division.

But yes, I'm sure AEW cares about their titles judging by how they're booked. Like when the #1 contender's wrestled against the Bucks at the last ppv oh wait, no that was a team that had one victory. Shows how much they care.

I will say this, I've been shocked at every TNT title change. For example, Miro. It felt like we were getting a solid feud with Darby v. Ethan Page that would lead to a TNT title match but then Miro wins it and I was like, holy shit that caught me by surprise. I thought Sting was going to give Darby the assist, keep everyone looking strong.

See, if Miro did an open challenge and Jungle Boi or Sammy G came out, I would know immediately that they would be winning because if they lost it'd be stupid. Miro is not over, Miro had to go back to being Rusev because his idea of what gets over didn't work at all-even with help from Sir William Mitchell.

I will say I was shocked that Brodie beat Cody so so easily for the TNT title, probably the last time I was really shocked tbh. Miro was destined for a killer push after that arcade match so him mauling Darby was not a shock to me.

He won't. Nobody in the Dork Order gets pushed now that Brodie is gone. I guess if Adam Page is part of the stable you have that but his relationship with DO is like watching a weird porn about Joe White and the Seven Dorks.

I just don't see it and we don't really have much history of couples following each other around promotion to promotion.

I felt bad for Andrade. He came out and it was like Alex Wright returning as Berlyn. You had like 20 people acknowledging the "get" but it's just one debut after another of former WWE talent. At least Eddie Kingston is a "get" that wasn't built in the land of WWE/or thrived on that platform since the 90's.

Here it just felt like ok, she was married to Eddie, AEW has virtually no Latino wrestlers right now other than Pentagon Jr (I think Fenix is hurt-go figure).

I figured the booker of the year would have been able to figure out how to debut all these former WWE talents by now but I guess even the booker of the year still has a ways to go.

It was lazy. It's like the early 90's WCW when every week on Saturday night some former WWF guy would just show up, cut a promo with Gene, and then either team up or get beat by Hogan lol. Sometimes both!

They should have waited for him to debut after Omega v. Jungle Boy.

I'm just still laughing inside about Andrade thinking he was going to get Hogan level control over his booking. He was trying to get one over on TK and props to TK for not being a complete mark because it showed just how Andrade views AEW. Imagine if he tried to tell WWE "I want the power to veto a loss" They would've killed that conversation immediately. He tried to take advantage of Tony thinking Tony was just a young dude with money-which he is but again, at least he showed some backbone here.

I read up on Andrade on wiki and he's had a successful career in Mexico on a main event level but even then he's not really up there with the greats or even that pos del rio for that matter. I wish he would do an interview explaining his thought process on how he thought he was on a Hogan, Austin or rock level.

Dude, that last line is fucking gold. Like AJ Lee level burn lol.

I'm curious how big of a star he is in Mexico in comparison to others. I knew of La Sombra because my son is a big New Japan mark and loves Naito, that whole Los Imblahblahblah stable connection. But I didn't know if he was like a big name or anything. Mexico doesn't always have the best business going for wrestling so who knows maybe he was a main eventer when nobody was showing up.

Did you hear Cornette's take on Black praising Vince and saying Vince was all about his ideas, etc. ?

I mean, if every Hispanic wrestler has a gunshot going off I don't know if I would call that racist unless Tony Khan or someone told dude "Why aren't there any gunshots in Sammy's entrance? WE NEED GUNSHOTS FOR ALL HISPANIC TALENT!!"

TK might be a Trumper but he's not exactly a racist.

I'm almost positive AEW hates women lol. I just wanted to mention how sad that Britt Baker segment was. Why was it nothing but jobber tag-teams and Nyla Jax? What was the story behind the McDonald's? I told my friend who I watch AEW with (thank God for his DVR service) that I get that a lot of the top talent and EVP's are big Trumpers but did they have to reenact the McDonald's at the White House shit.

Not sure why it was all the jabronis honestly that was weird.

I guess I don't remember anything about her and Big Macs being a thing lol. I'll be honest, I hate the women's division in AEW with a passion. This has nothing to do with me comparing it to WWE because not everything AEW does has to relate to how WWE does something. But I think that AEW should watch some older TNA and even TNA now.

The depth isn't the problem it's the booking. I was positive about Britt Baker winning but it really wasn't anything special in terms of the feud. It was alright, match was good enough to make up for it but then the follow up is what? Nyla Jax butthurt about being included with the jobbers? Throwing nasty ass fuckin Big Macs all over the crowd. Was this a babyface turn for Britt?

IMO, if I'm booking, Deeb v. Baker is the match to make. Former NWA champion now looking to get that women's gold. Maybe I'm jumping the gun and that was just a meaningless segment but who knows. Whoever is booking the women needs to be replaced immediately. We should be looking at heel Baker v. babyface Deeb or if you want to turn Britt, do it in a more meaningful way. Maybe she saves Tony from a verbal beating. Shit I think fans would just automatically side with her, looking at Deeb as an "outsider" so to speak.

Fuck you Brock Anderson lol. Dude is like 23 looks 53. Maybe I'm alone and I'm fine in saying this but anything involving Cody Rhodes fucking suuuuuuuuuucks. Other than matches, I'm pretty fucking lenient when it comes to how I digest wrestling ability. So I can tolerate a match, but I just hate the guy. I hate seeing his face, I hate his self-righteous attitude, I hate his tweets, his neck tat, every interview, every angle, I'm sure if he read this he would blade himself and ask his focus group of Yes Men what he thinks.....I mean, if this is what he wanted to do in the WWE-jerk himself off and act like the biggest tool in the world-I can see why they said naw, Stardust. lol.

Or maybe doing the whole Stardust thing fucked up his brain and he still hasn't recovered. Everything Cody has done other than taking a beating from my Washington brother Brodie Lee has sucked in AEW.

Right now I hate to say it the only stuff I'm enjoying is seeing 2/3 of Death Triangle and then the occasional Eddie Kingston promo. I mean they have Jungle Boy coming in regular clothes and we still to this fucking day have no clue why he calls himself Jungle Boy, why he rolls with Luchaman and Marty Stunt. I thought they were going to reveal some dope Dragontales story but naw it's just bullshit. Kenny Omega, terrible.

Plus they had their worst ratings ever so hopefully they start trying. Come on booker of the year Tony Khan! Put down the cocaine, stop crossing your arms together thinking it makes you look like you have guns and pay attention to this fuckery going on in AEW.

Because people are creatures of habit. They're used to watching AEW at 7pm on a Wednesday. Friday is also a big night to go out with the work week ending and covid not being as big of a thing anymore so it's not surprising ratings are low for 9pm on a Friday.

So is AEW just not even going to try since they're not on Webelo night? (Shout out to any of you who get that)

I about slit my fucking throat watching that "MMA" match with Swagger and Wardlow. To an extent I'm a purist of MMA and seeing that shit was hideous. I was never a fan of The Lion's Den stuff either back in the 90's but at least it was a legend--still sucked though.

lol @ Brock Anderson.

I just can't sink my teeth into ANYTHING going on in AEW right now beyond simply tuning in to see some of my favorites. Which is pretty much how I'm digesting every promotion I'm watching these days. Nothing really compelling other than the wrestling itself but even that only gets you so far if the matches aren't that good.

I think the pandemic has hindered a lot. I know wrestling was pretty bad pre-pandameic, but it's all sunk to new lows.

With crowds coming back in over the next 2 - 3 months, I think we will see improvements in every company. I'm looking forward to it.

I do believe that the lack of crowds in general does take away from the aestetic of the show but like you said, it was already pretty bad. Sometimes the crowds just sitting on their hands can make a show look weak compared to that same show being in front of a wild crowd. And vice verse, shitty shows can seem dope because everyone cheers every second (See AEW) but then you go back and realize 90% of it was forgettable and the 0ther 10% was done by the WWE.

I'm sorry but using potty words and giving the finger on TV doesn't make you different.

I'm going to agree on where you're coming from but disagree in saying that it doesn't make you different. I'll explain.

TV in general, you're correct. I could easily turn on 20 different shows that get 10x the viewers and it blends right in. On the other hand, in terms of wrestling tv-specifically the West (North America, Europe), this is different to an extent. In AEW, not so much. On Raw and Smackdown, for sure. NXT isn't as homogenized as Raw and Smackdown so we have seen a little more realism in promos over the years.

With all that said, I'm not as over the top impressed as others whenever Eddie cuts a promo. It's expected that he's going to have a good promo because that's what he brings to the table. I'd be more impressed if he could wrestle a decent match but he's probably too busy pining over Cesaro not doing the job to him years ago lol.

the whole thing is he is avoiding the elephant in the room.

it stands in contrast to when page was in the inaugural title match with jericho. he had the spunk and fire of an upcoming talent looking to become the fresh face of a brand new franchise, and none of the elite really stood with him in any significant way. the young bucks wouldnt second him to the ring like they would for kenny in new japan. we saw the break up with the elite play out. in the aftermath, page cautiously let himself get close with the dark order, while still dealing with his confidence issues and imposter syndrome, and unlike his time with the elite, you have the dark order standing up for him and making the case for him.

Sasori

The main event was fantastic. I think I liked it more than Omega v Jungle Boy. Probably because there was more animosity between MJF and Sammy which helped drive the story in the ring.

Well, I know Iím a tough critic but tonightís match was just great: fantastic moves well performed; great selling for a change in an AEW match; nice storytelling within the match as well as setting it upÖ.

The Omega - Jungle Adolecent match on the other hand featured very little selling with both wrestlers jumping up almost immediately after executing each move instead of selling and quickly moving on to the next spot. I refer to such wrestling Ďmatchesí as exhibits of wrestling holds rather than matches to be honest as everything that makes a wrestling match (I.e., the emotions) are removed in the name of looking like a human video game.

not my cup of tea.

tonightís match, however, most likely due to MJF, was an excellent match, best Iíve seen outside of Reigns in a while.

You basically asked two questions and the answer to the overall question is no, this is not the first time he's had new music AND not been called The Best Man.

I think it's safe to say that whether it's the promoter telling him what to do, or leaving it up to himself to come up with something creative, Miro is lame.

What is this God's favorite wrestler and sexualizing his wife in the same sentence all about? "Thank you God for giving me the strength and for making my hot wife flexible" No wonder they named her Lana (Spell it backwards)

Yeah some things strike better than others but there is very little I’ll sit and watch on AEW that I think is complete shit - wheras on a random raw I’ll see clips of the Alexa stuff, the same 3 matches over and over, Miz getting splashed with water or whatever.

I would LOVE for WWE to be grabbing me too, I watch stuff to enjoy it, not to come and sound edgy about it in a thread.

Really looking forward to both companies being back in front of fans and on the road, building up Hangman’s big match in front of crowds, Miro finally being the beast he’s always threatened to be, Darby and Egos lovely little feud, and anything involving Orange, the Bucks, Baker, Kingston, Starks and a bunch more

i feel ya, man. AEW has allowed me to just be a fan again in a way i couldn't with new japan, as much as i have loved their output the last half decade plus of actively watching. it's not because AEW is a beyond amazing product or bang on perfect, necessarily, but because it doesn't have the baggage of a decade or more of bad faith, which honestly goes so far. it's why i can let the dud of a final explosion for the barbed wire deathmatch or the lame looking jericho bump in blood & guts roll off my back much, much easier than similar or even lesser things in WWE.

Funny thing is, go back about 2 months (not that you have to) but I was the biggest fan in here of AEW, probably still am. But any time someone mentions anything bad about AEW in a pro-AEW platform/thread/forum/etc. OMG it's like I suddenly hate everything LOL.


Pop in every once in a while. This thread needs more positivity

Talking shit is positive? Make up your mind quitter.


itís hard dude. I havenít actively watched wwe since 2019. Itís just not for me, but if I come on here and say ďGreat dynamite this weekĒ I get the fucking cross examination from ND or Donald comes into this thread to act oblivious. Itís very annoying and itís why I largely hate discussing wrestling on this forum anymore.

Iím with you though, I love AEW and with 2 youngins, if I have to pick wrestling to watch for the week, itís gonna be dynamite

I'm the biggest AEW fan in this thread. Just because I don't blindly think everything they do is amazing like you doesn't change any of that.


yeah, this thread is terrible, and I'd given up expecting to have any worthwhile discussion in it early on when spudz was clogging it with his horrible brand of... everything.

thought about linking that twitter thread detailing out the ballad of hangman, cause reading over it just made me love wrestling and go into a fit of fantasy booking to matthew and torn, but figured it wouldnt be worth the time.

Yes the threads that you don't get to try and pop off like you're someone is terrible. Your only contributions are talking shit so do most of us a favor and give up on this life.

Hero!

i feel ya, man. AEW has allowed me to just be a fan again in a way i couldn't with new japan, as much as i have loved their output the last half decade plus of actively watching. it's not because AEW is a beyond amazing product or bang on perfect, necessarily, but because it doesn't have the baggage of a decade or more of bad faith, which honestly goes so far. it's why i can let the dud of a final explosion for the barbed wire deathmatch or the lame looking jericho bump in blood & guts roll off my back much, much easier than similar or even lesser things in WWE.

Yeah i think the good faith argument is a big part of it. Every other day theres another story about why WWE is a shitty organisation to work for and their real contempt for fans and lack of giving a fuck about seeing things through/developing stories. The crap part about that is the WWE is full of talent i really like, just presented in a way where i dont really feel inclined to watch. But again, that product isnt for 32 year old - two decade long fan Gary over here, its for some other demo.

AEW is pitched for me and I love it, the good faith is there because i can genuinely see them pivot, try to change or adapt stories that arent working - just even the notion of being listened to makes a difference. Theyve made me care about names I didnt know existed two years ago, everything seems fresh and there are a litany of directions they can go in. So I dont really mind when the dud explosion happens or when cody cuts a weird promo about america or where something doesnt really land for me, because I've got the confidence that the rest of the show will make up for it, and that THEY will recognise it didnt land and do something different next time.

Also, i largely stay away from wrestling twitter and forums now and jesus christ its so refreshing to just watch and enjoy a show without overanalyzing every decision, booking plan or error. Who knew.
