After reading Jericho's response, it's your typical "moving the goal posts to fit your narrative" type deal.

Eric is pretty much spot on in his assessment of TK's boasting - unless you ACTUALLY compete head-to-head with WWE, not a 30-min SD overrun and actually beat them in the overall viewership, they have nothing to boast about.

It's 2 totally different eras as well. Back in the 90's, WCW were taking over the market from WWF. Then they fumbled the ball. Thankfully. Vince wasn't trying to put WCW out of business, he was trying to maintain his own. By all accounts, Bischoff was trying to take out Vince for whatever reason. In this day and age, good luck. WWE have been marching to the beat of their own drum for as long as I can remember. It allowed them to truly transcend out of the wrestling bubble.

It's really not. WWE is the ones who decided to overrun Smackdown into Rampage. Smackdown lost that overrun. That's all there is to it. Rampage is only an hour long show.

The overrun was due to the fact that they were broadcasting on FS1 as opposed to Fox due to the MLB playoffs, I didn't see any tweets or reports that anybody from WWE have said that it was in direct competition to AEW. Tony was the one who made the assumption. Mind you, FS1 is in far fewer households than TNT and SD still had more viewers overall even with the overrun.

I like both companies and have watched their programming but AEW is starting to be a bit of a turn off if their main goal is to destroy WWE where it hurts. I had the same feeling during the MNW when I started tuning out WCW when they kept bringing up putting WWE out of business. I don't know why it's so difficult for AEW to focus squarely on what their doing and not on what WWE is doing.

Why does having an overrun because they were on FS1 make any sense? Is that something they've done before? It is as obvious of a move as competing with them with NXT.

Rampage won the overrun. When it was deciding between watching one show or another, they won. I don't think AEW is trying to destroy WWE where it hurts or whatever, they've never been the ones initiating counter programming. WWE started it with NXT and they started it again with the Smackdown overrun.

Despite being cocky and overzealous, I don't think Tony Khan and AEW wants to actually put WWE out of business. I think they just want to assert their place as #1. But for all his shit-talking, I don't think Tony hates having competition. I think he's just playing too much on the "chip on your shoulder" attitude of being the company with less establishment.

That's what their fans want. Plus every other promotion does it. Clout chasing.

I also blame WWE. Triple H and DX didn't need to mention them at all at the HOF. But that's Triple H, he can't fucking resist shooting on people thinking he's getting the last word, the last fuck you-listen to his back and forth promos over the last 24 years. He's terrible at no-selling.

But ultimately it's what the AEW fanbase wants. No different than ECW back in the day. A big selling point for ECW was tuning in on the Sunshine Network every week to hear someone shit on WCW, WWF, or that fat kid in the front with some dirt sheet-inspired sign lol. Also, Tony and his people/fans think they're really at "war" with WWE. It's boring. Been there done that, many times.

There is enough women to do 16. I think they pushing more storyline stuff with this set up and with the first round match ups. I am fine with storylines in the tournaments but I also like just seeing random matches because it is a tournament. We shall see how it plays out.

I thought Anna and Britt had one of those matches that paired two ladies that you hope to see multiple times over the years for AEW. Anna has improved a bit but she still looks like she's a work in progress.

PAC and Andrade had an extremely fun match. I couldn't make heads or tails out of what Andrade was trying to get across in his promo before the match but it is what it is. At least he mentioned a friend and that came into play after the match. After weeks of appearances, they finally found something to get the crowd to boo Black.

Rhodes and Danielson had a roller coaster of a match in terms of momentum. Both guys really had their moments where they were on the cusp of winning. That probably helps quell concerns at a surface level as to why Rhodes was in the match in the first place but still doesn't fully justify the decision to have him in the tournament haha. I really do like the fact that Danielson is showing off by being able to secure wins with different finishes.

Highly entertaining and very effective segment between MJF and Sting.

Really perplexing set of circumstances for Punk, whether intentional or not. First, he moves on to Bobby Fish? Next, not a damn person wanted to come out and save (checks notes) STING, but Punk needed to go save Greene? That doesn't make sense lol. Semi-related, guys like Fish and now Tony Nese are being brought along but someone like Murphy couldn't come to an agreement before he went elsewhere? Obviously that can and will likely inevitably change but that seems like bringing things along out of order.

Nasty, nasty fall by Archer. He said he's okay, but we'll see how in the coming days.

Really liked the Moxley promo.

Super mixed bag with the main event. The timing felt absolutely off with Andrade coming down the ramp. You don't love to see it when Cody springs back to life relatively fast deep into a match after taking the Black Mass (especially after the combination he took prior to that). That seemed to be pretty understated from commentary's perspective, too. I get that Cody had just as likely of a chance to win this blowoff, but the way it happened didn't do him any favors to win over the crowd lol. Black took a massive beating after he delivered that kick. Sheesh.

that mox promo was fucking awful. he's spent months getting more and more belligerent about carrying the company during the pandemic and wanting the title back, and now suddenly one week his daughter grabbed his crooked pinky and he goes 'i don't care about the title, i don't care about the tournament.' good for you, mox, but fuck off with that.

Dynamite thoughts so far...

Danielson/Dustin was just a delight. It's been great to watch Danielson enjoying himself over the last few weeks. I can't say that I'm even slightly intrigued by Tony Nese's presence.

MJF/Sting segment was great, as most MJF segments are. Should be a big old pop when Darby returns.

I'm guessing it'll be Shida/Rose and then Soho/Rose in one half of the TBS tournament with Thunder Rosa facing Anna Jay and Velvet taking on Cargill. Rosa/Cargill in that semi leading to a Cargill/Soho final.

As BG said, Punk saving Anthony Greene to confront Bobby Fish but not Sting made little sense. But generally things in AEW make a lot more sense than they do in WWE, so I can allow it more. Punk/Fish doesn't particularly excite me and since Fish isn't a young guy it doesn't really fit with what Punk has been doing, but I will say that I like how Fish has been presented in AEW so far and I'm a hell of a lot more invested in him than I have been previously. His entrance theme is class.

Looking forward to Danielson/Kingston. This world title eliminator tournament feels incredibly predictable but we'll get some good matches out of it.

I liked the Mox promo. Things change, but people don't. Made sense. Maybe he'll squash his way into a title match. Maybe it'll lead to some off-time for him in the eventually...

I liked the Kingston/Danielson segment during Rhodes to the Top, too. Kingston's chances of winning seem slim, but Danielson did come off as a kinda overconfident dork, so it should be a close contest.

Punk as locker-room leader of the job squad is strangely fitting for him. I knew they'd make use of him before too long passed.

Still seems like AEW is missing one L.A. Park at this point, but they really have their shit together.

That AEW-Impact partnership was so blown out of proportion and looked what it lead to....Christian dropping the title to a fucking nobody who then lost to another nobody that should've beat the nobody who Christian won it from in the first place.

Danielson-Rhodes was a good match, props to him giving a shout to the Tribal Chief with the finish. There isn't one good heel in the entire tournament so I'm hoping Danielson wins. TBH, I don't really give a shit if Hangman wins or Omega retains. If Punk doesn't want the belt and wants to wrestle the bottom of the barrel to prove some hipster point, have at it chef. Danielson should be the guy. Best wrestler in the company, huge fanbase, can talk, looks like an idiot but that's his charm.

I'm curious if Archer was supposed to win that match. There's a part of me that thinks we might see Moxley v. Kingston in the finals.

I "got" what they were going for with Mox's promo. But at the same time, it was kinda terrible for the message sent. Like JR says all the time, if you're not here to be the champion, then what are you here for? Him going on about how he doesn't care about the title, or the tournament, or anything really, other than getting home to his kid makes me think "okay, great. Go away, then. Get the fuck off my tv so other people can be showcased since you don't give a flying fuck." He did make the caveat about it would be different if he was a plumber or accountant or whatever "mundane" career he listed, I guess we're supposed to still be okay with him since wrestling is all he knows? Unless it leads to him going away, then getting bored at home, and coming back to either "do something" or "prove he can still be on top", he can get rolled up and keep his ass gone.

i dont think that's what he was getting at at all. the heart of the promo was 'getting home to her' and how he will do whatever is necessary to make sure he gets home to her safe. that's why he said it'd be much easier if he was a plumber or some other 'common' job. but his job is to beat people up, so he will do that when people are placed in front of him, so he can go home and see his little girl. which, like, is sweet, but i dont think i care about rooting for mox to win matches so he gets home safely to see his daughter.

That’s what I took from it. KO had his motivations when he appeared on NXT and it was for his family. Moxley said he’s going to get his opponent before his opponent gets him. He’s got motivation but the methodology could be skewed. That’s ideally what you want from a textured heel.

Morrison
October 25th, 2021, 6:07 PM
KO called himself a prize fighter, though. he never straight up said he didnt cared about the world title.

at this moment, it's just very odd. if it is a building block for a character or alignment change, unfortunately it's a square peg jammed into a round hole, for now. obviously gotta wait and see how it plays out, especially if it is to end up with bryan/mod as the final.

I'm sure he mentioned a bunch of family and food stuff in his early AEW promos, but I was referring to an interview Kingston did right before his second match with Moxley. I couldn't find a video, but he said something the effect of "I didn't care about Moxley, I don't care about Lance Archer, I don't care about Pac. It's only about the title". He was really somber and all business.

Tony Neese.....Are we finally going to see something out of this guy? Impact, boring. WWE, boring-the guy even won a title, why?

Back to Moxley. I just don't think AEW ever truly positioned him as THE guy. It was like when Punk had that year+ reign as WWE champion but if he wasn't doing a program with John Cena it didn't feel like they were really pushing as the top guy. With Mox as champion, despite his incredible W/L record, it always seemed like whatever Jericho was doing was the main priority. Understandable to an extent (name value).

I think if Mox turns heel, this would be something to shine a light on.

That was looking to make good on the finer details. Punk's left leg/knee was worked over during the match and Punk hit the GTS with that knee. The fact that Punk hit it with the hurt knee, took time to gather himself, and get into pinning position allowed the moment to kick out just after 3.

Yeah, I don't see why else Fish would kick out so hard after a GTS if it was supposed to be a 3 count. Eh... could have been planned, could have been a messup. If it was the latter, then that ref probably got an ear full. Match was still good tho.

That reveal also 1-upped all of DO so they could rejoin in the battle lol.

I don't see them all as awful people. I give everyone a chance on an individual basis. But from experience, I'm usually not a fan of military types. So the fact Flip capitalizes on it when I find nothing appealing about him makes it hard for me to give a fuck about him as a performer.

This is at all no judgment on him as a person, and if he wasn't ex-military, my opinion wouldn't be much different. I just think he's a bland wrestler that just so happens to take pride in a culture of which I'm not a fan.

I'm curious to see where it's going to be honest with Mox. He's looked mad out of shape, lazy, his promos are lazy, his in-ring work was never good but it's even worse now. It's like he wants out. It feels like ever since he lost the World title he's been on auto pilot. I get that he has a kid, I have 4, he might be serious in those corny promos about wanting to pinky hug his baby. It totally kills his character for me-right now. But I have faith in him to pull it together.

Now....Him turning heel and feuding with Adam Page would be fire. It would be a big win for Page as well. Kenny Omega, in our wrestling bubble in certain circles of that bubble consider Omega on the same level as Moxley. I'm not talking skill level, I'm talking name value. Adam Page, if he's going to be the guy, he isn't going to be the guy off the back of what he's done up until this point including beating Kenny Omega. In the AEW world, sure, Page is now on the same path as SCSA was to dethroning HBK at Mania 14. But Page still needs big wins that transcend the non-WWE/casual wrestling fan bubble.

A solid program with Jon Moxley would be incredible. I'm a fan of Moxley beating Page for the belt when it's all said and done and giving us a heel Moxley World championship reign--incredible.

I fear for OC next week :scared:

An interesting dynamic, that one. Two guys that "don't care" but for different reasons. Cassidy is just lazy/conserving energy until needed, whereas Moxley is just "fuck you, I just wanna go home". I'd love it if we do get Bryan vs Mox that Bryan addresses that on tv. Or they could pull a swerve and it's Mox vs Kingston, which would be interesting because Eddie would be highly motivated for the exact opposite reasons as Moxley. Amazing how long term booking can make a tournament more interesting, I love it!

Speaking of tournaments, the TBS title one is turning out great so far. Deeb vs Shida was a banger like I thought it would be, and I love that they put the 50th win in the mix and Deeb going apeshit at the end. Also, that's the only type of rollup that should beat people, in my view. Surprise when they think they have you in their own rollup, all your bodyweight on their neck, both legs hooked; you can't escape. And you saw Deeb trying to kick out with her legs, which is an added element of awesome.

Going forward in that one, there are at least five people that you'd believably advance and/or be the winner. Nyla should win against a hobbled Shida (and they have a history from battling over the world title last year). Then Nyla and Jade should be next and that's good because Jade has beef with Nyla over the elimination from the Casino Battle Royale. After that, Jade should be in the finals (and is a good contender for winning) given she needs to keep getting experience and they can hype her up with the title. It kinda would be a step down for Nyla, so I don't see her winning. But Thunder Rosa has beef with Jade and Nyla also, and you can see them giving it to her, but if their endgame is to go after and take the title off Britt, then that might not work. Unless they want to do their own double champion thing, which seems very anathema to AEW's style of booking thus far. Throw in Ruby Soho and Statlander in the mix, and either of them could be the champ, as it could further them. Albeit, I think Kris more than Ruby, as Statlander is one of the "AEW Originals" and they might want to avoid over pushing Ruby as a former WWE talent taking shine away from their originals.

All this to say, no matter what, the outcome has the potential to be very good.

Other notes from the show, Homelander Cody is great to me. I was expecting him after he said "I'll never turn" to then go ahead and punch Arn. Adding Andrade into the mix gives much needed exposure for him, and adding Pac gives someone the fans like that when Cody betrays him, will get him over even more, and cement a Cody turn. I kinda don't get all the Cody hate, but I've always liked him. Even Stardust Cody. I think he actually was turning the crowd around. Something that I think is lost in all this, and I think it's because it wasn't picked up on the mic too well when it happened, is one of those weeks when Black attacked Cody on the stage, he said something about "hear that, the crowd hates you, they're mine" or something to that effect. Makes me think that this was the plan all along, because you knew no one was going to boo Black, after having been hamstrung by the WWE for so long and then put in a closet before unceremoniously getting let go. And the stuff with Zelina and unions at the time, but that's for another day.

Punk vs Fish was a good match. I actually loved the arm out at 3.1, as, when done right, can make you look good in defeat. That, and kicking the shit out of Punk's knee throughout the match, making it smart to try to take away his most deadly move.

I almost never watch a full Young Bucks match because they devolve into superkick spam, but I did watch the end with the Hangman stuff as StayPuft. It's goofy and silly for Halloween, but also advances the Full Gear story. So I like it.

Really good atmosphere from the crowd, having it come across as it a was a very split group in terms of favoritism. Danielson's chest seemed like it was somewhat spared in the match against Suzuki, especially compared to the Omega match, but it got wrecked in this one haha. Their standoff strikes were really good and needless to say, they really meshed together very well. Danielson has dropped phenomenal bangers since he's arrived in AEW. Again, he won with another different finish. The dichotomy could be present as Danielson has really had to work his butt off to get to the Finals, while (presumably) Moxley gets there in relatively easy fashion through dominance.

Punk and Kingston definitely has ample potential. The verbal jousting alone could be extremely combustable and riveting.

Martin/Sydal III was a fun juxtaposition to the opener haha. Martin is just absurdly athletic and it's really impressive to watch him go. He's getting better as he gets more time, and that's really tantalizing when trying to figure out his ceiling. The elevation and burst he has on that stomp is impressive. He really could have that as his finisher and I would be sold.

The interaction between Henry and Abadon during the interview portion was silly but fitting as his deadpanning really helped ease the potential awkwardness of everything. Abadon is the creepiness that WWE likely wanted from Alexa when she was inherited Wyatt's gimmick but WWE is way too homogenized to fully capture that. Anything Abadon does just has a hint of creepiness to it that can be unnerving. Rough fall on the spinning neck breaker to the outside, especially with the table not giving. Even more brutal to see that it didn't budge on the followup suplex. Really great touch to have Britt put the tacks in Abadon's mouth. I was curious to see how they were going to work into the lockjaw and I thought the executed that well. Much better than the no sell of the chair stomp to the neck. Kind of cockamamie and WWE-ish to have Abadon in a spot where beating the champ was going to earn her a shot but oh well. The match was entertaining.

mth
October 30th, 2021, 12:36 AM
I tuned in for Abadon but ended up watching all three matches.

Have never seen Kingston wrestle before so I thought I'd take a look. Was a little bored at first but it got pretty good by the end. Bryan really likes getting his chest turned to hamburger, doesn't he?

Dante's buckets of fun to watch. Very Ricochet-esque with the speed, agility, and fluidity of his flippity shit. Match was decent.

As i said, i came for the main event and for the most part, it delivered. Look forward to the table spots in Botchamania. The head in the chair bit was particularly great but I think the camera was on Britt too much post-move 'cuz Abby probably did her neck crank recovery which is dope and should've been on camera. Thumbtacks always raise the intensity and in the fucking mouth is pretty nuts. i can only hope those were gimmicked tacks. Loved the twist on the Lockjaw spot. Pretty miffed that Abby didn't win considering the stip but heels gotta be heels, i guess, and she's pretty new overall so her time will hopefully come down the line. With her not in the TBS tourny, nice to see her get a spotlight here at least.

Thumbtacks always raise the intensity and in the fucking mouth is pretty nuts. i can only hope those were gimmicked tacks. Loved the twist on the Lockjaw spot. Pretty miffed that Abby didn't win considering the stip but heels gotta be heels, i guess, and she's pretty new overall so her time will hopefully come down the line. With her not in the TBS tourny, nice to see her get a spotlight here at least.

I like what Abadon brings to the table. Speaking of tables, that table no sold everything during that match. I'm actually glad about this, because it shows people that the tables aren't gimmicked to break easily, so if one gets brought out in a match, you know some shit is going to do down. I also like that, since she's a "zombie", biting Britt's hand when she tries to stick it in her mouth is the best way to counter Lockjaw. I would love it going forward that one of the reasons she's relegated to Dark is because no one wants to mess with her. In that mini feud with Shida, you saw she was the only one Shida was afraid of. During the Casino battle royale, Abadon immediately went after her, and tried to bite a piece of her again. Establish that she is a crazy mofo and stay far away if you can.

Bryan vs Eddie was a banger. I am wondering how in the hell his chest heals so fast from being turned into hamburger seemingly every week. The verbal confrontation with Punk in the hallway was great as well. Punk is still "just having fun" while Eddie portrays "this is my fucking life", so that's built in consternation for Eddie right there. People have been wondering when Punk would move on from facing "jobbers" and I think Eddie Kingston is as far from a "jobber" as you can get before facing the top tier.

Dante vs Sydal was a good match as well. Dante looks like he floats in the air, it's amazing. And I've always liked Sydal, and he really should be in contention for the TNT title.

I will say that I HATE having Jericho on commentary. His yelling doesn't suit for prolonged commentary. That, and the fighting for time against the others at the booth, makes for mute territory. Please AEW, just do three man booths if necessary. If you insist on having Jericho there, then only do him and Excalibur. Or chose between Starks and Taz. I guess since they might be skittish on having Ricky wrestle too much with his neck, they still want to make him featured.

Hard to believe that show was only an hour, it felt so packed. But at the same time, none of the matches felt rushed. And they still fit in a backstage segment, and the hype segment for the main event.

Kingston isn't a jobber but he's not exactly someone I'm wanting to see CM Punk work with unless absolutely necessary. As I said above, the verbals between the two would've been nice if we had maybe a month or so. But it's just another random pointless match with a guy that usually wrestles and beats nobodies, unless he teams up with Moxley then they both beat up nobodies like Ever Rise 2.0.

That's a good point that Kingston/Punk deserves serious build.

That's an extremely underground connection though. I don't think it would take anything next level unless you're someone like you or myself who even remember the connection. I only remember it because that's how I became a fan of CM Punk. The first time he was ranked in the 500 I read his description plus his initials were similar to my own. But it also talked about Chris Hero and Homicide, and the infamous TLC Ironman whatever the fuck match Hero and Punk had in IWA Mid South.

You want to talk about taking some shit to the next level, have CM Punk turn heel on Colt Cobana. Not only is there more history in terms of them coming up together, but also the lawsuit that made CM Punk kind of a piece of shit.

That first part has absolutely nothing to do with what you're talking about though. You're wanting there to be a continuation of their rivalry from almost 20 years in a promotion very few people even knew about. You might as well want to see SAT return or Ace Steel or BJ Whitmer, John Walter I believe returned. Xavier could come back too. At least that's ROH history. IWA Mid South, despite being a trash promotion, was very very local and deserves zero press even if it's based on something that went down back in the day.

It's like wanting to see Metallica perform with Ron McGovney or a collab album with Jay-Z and Jaz-O (it'd be fresh but who would even care?)

Bottomline, I'd like to see Chris Hero on tv again but I don't know if I want to see him based on a rivalry very few people know about.

He's talked about how it's a thyroid issue so there's not much he can do about it. Or that he wants to do about it I guess. I don't think it's something life threatening, maybe he was just using it as an excuse.

Either way....At the very least ROH should've given him a run with the World title when he first came back after getting released by WWE. Or even the 2nd time for fuck's sake how is the ball not being given to him but Impact's like oh hey Moose here's another boring title run for ya.

I know it comes across cold saying this but I said it already.....any momentum he truly had dropped significantly when they had to pivot to the shit they've done in his absence. As a father I can respect his decision to be gone. He was obviously concerned with missing the birth of his child. I just think AEW had to pivot but went in the absolute wrong direction.

Now Omega's reign is 2-3 months longer than it should've been. He's now a guy who came back after the return of CM Punk, the debut of Bryan Danielson, plus you have guys like Malakai Black, Adam Cole, Andrade, more than likely Bray Wyatt. Plus you have talent like Cassidy, Jungle Boy, MJF, Darby Allin, Cody Rhodes is fucking back, PAC, the tag scene=nice, the women's division is finally looking halfway decent.

And we're supposed to get jacked up for Adam Page? Honestly I feel the same way about Page right now as I did when he was going in against Jericho to possibly be the 1st ever AEW champion....I think if he does win, they'll be ok I just wonder how much better of a spot he would be in had he won the title at the last ppv. For me with this guy it's going to be the "and then what happens next" that impresses me. He beats Omega, wow, so did Christian fucking Cage. But I want to see what happens next for the guy.

Man I haven't watched Aero Star in 2-3 years. He looked like he came into this match hurt. Plus there were a few spots where he just fucking splattered himself on the ground.....I don't remember him looking so much like Gran Metallik in terms of size.

CM Punk makes it hard to admit he's my favorite wrestler of the modern era. When he came out I predicted 2 things: SHout out to Moxley and something relating it to his time in WWE. He delivered. 4/10.

Cody v. Andrade was incredible. Andrade and Cody are probably the 2 biggest tools outside of the ring but hard to deny they're not 2 of the absolute best in this company.

Still not sold on Page beating Omega but again, Page's success will be more about what happens after he wins the title. Someone said he should win it and then do an open challenge where MJF beats him the following Dynamite. Kind of reminded me of when Christian finally won the World title in WWE and then lost it 3 days later to Orton at a taped Smackdown.

Why is Nyla Rose still employed?

To end it on a positive, if Jade Cargill fired Steve Corino's brother she'd be much better off. Oh a positive? PVZ, couldn't stand her push in the UFC but she should be the TBS champion. I can't believe she left herself wide open for some of those jabs lol. Against Jericho of all people. Incredible.

The crowd knew what was up. This isn't the WWE audience where a good chunk are oblivious to the internet. The AEW fans knew the situation with Moxley.

There were some right around me asking what was up. Its not like it was MSG, fairly small stadium. A few rowdies with a bad reaction could have been heard.



I actually think it makes sense to play it safe, and Punk bringing WWE into it was certainly that.



On another note, Tony fucking Kahn. He comes out before the show to an introduction of "Our owner, president, founder, booker, etc, etc, pretty much everything....Tony Kahn" and does his thing. Then at the end of the show, when he's thanked he does the "no, not me" gesture. Its a bit off.

And also, is it possible that Jon could auto correct to John, as that seems to be the more common spelling?

Listen to Jericho on commentary he fucks up more than Jim Ross. Dude is drunk 90% of the time he should be roomies with Mox asap.

It wasn't a big deal at all. Jericho was probably drunk again and I can't put parameters on how Ms Huber chooses to grieve. It was just odd that she didn't even bring it up, it was Jericho.

So you're saying he misspelled "Drunk God" as "Demo God"?

Pretty sure right before or after the CM Punk segment they were advertising his bubbly.

I hope if Joe gets released from WWE and is not medically cleared he replaces Jericho on Rampage commentary.

I wanted him in the beginning, before he went back to NXT.

I wish WWE would release Michael Cole and Dynamite would be Cole and Tazz.

The one nice thing about being a fan for 3+ decades is you master the art of turning out terrible commentary. Excalibur is by far the worst commentator I've heard since Mike Adamle. And Adamle used to be the shit back in the 90's doing American Gladiators. Tony Schiavone is a close 2nd. I was never a fan of his going back to his little stupid mustache phase. JR.....I love Jim Ross but you can literally hear the disgust in his voice calling AEW.

CM Punk would be a good addition if he gets to wear the sports jacket again.

I don't understand Excalibur hate. He's the best. Commentary had a glaring hole when he was missing. I will take him over Michael "vintage" Cole, every time.

As someone who only watches a bit of AEW here and there, I think Excalibur and Tony are fine. Tazz is hilarious. JR is terrible. Jericho is also pretty unpleasant. And then there's always a fourth dude like Wight, Henry, or Starks that seems totally unnecessary.

If you wanna hear bad commentary, listen to IMPACT’s commentary. It’s brutal.

Those last 3 suck too but they're not expected to be good.

Yes, for someone who barely watches AEW I'm sure you think they're fine. As someone who has been listening to Excalibur commentate for many years (PWG, now AEW) He sucks.

Yeah, he's excellent. The commentary on the PPVs, Dynamite and Dark is really good and one of the big reasons watching AEW is so enjoyable at the moment. I don't think WWE commentary has been nearly as listenable in about 15 years. Wight and Tony on Elevation are fine. The Rampage team needs trimming for sure.

WWE commentary is pretty terrible outside of Corey Graves and Pat McAfee. Beth and Wade on NXT aren't too bad. The play by play are pretty whack. Jimmy Smith gets a little bit of a pass because I did enjoy his Bellator/UFC commentary and he's still pretty fresh. If it was just him and Graves, it'd be a lot better. Byron is probably the worst commentator next to Excalibur solely based on the fact they've been doing it for so long.

I can't speak for most of you but those who are my age, we grew up with the elite. Nowadays I long for Mongo McMichael and his dog.

Is Josh Matthews still doing commentary? If so, he might take Excalijob's place as the worst.

Someday Xavier Woods will become the best commentary man of all-time. Just hold on until then.

Put Truth in there on colour commentary as well.

Truth should be a backstage interviewer or the next generation briscoe/patterson.

He's better in limited doses.



I could easily do 3 hours with the dulcet tones of Xavier.


I loved when Bryan Danielson Bryan was on Main Event doing guest commentary.....His stuff about bear wrestling....gold.

That’s true but Truth being a technophobe trying to get the headset to work properly like him gaming on UUDD would be gold as well.

Just catching up on Dynamite. Really good show so far.

Nice nod to Nitro with the “Stings” coming out. Great clothesline spot.

You can see me briefly when MJF and Darby fight. I've got my "Next time Hero" sign
