I can see that. But to me it came across as his passion and overall feelings of ownership with the company. It felt like it tied into his opening statement. He can't disconnect from his journey, which is why he's not turning, etc.

Certainly that's just my read, and sure it came across differently to some. But I could kinda feel it.

For sure. That came across well, but if the main point was going to be promoting the match, I'm not sure that will resonate and just will get lost in the shuffle.

He turned simply for the choice in tie he wore, to me lol.

The match felt a little secondary to me, so I more thought that could get lost in the shuffle/drama surrounding Cody.




And after seeing Cesaro rock the tie game a few months ago, everybody else is at least 2 levels down.

Ringo
January 23rd, 2022, 8:24 AM
Rampage was a good show, the best in a while. Feels like the last few weeks of AEW TV has been a bit of a lull and aside from Bryan Danielson's brilliance my interest has gradually been waning since Full Gear. The fact that we've seen less of some of two of my favourites in Miro and Kingston is probably one reason why. But Mox's return has generated a fresh buzz and I'm hoping this is the start of the push towards Revolution. How much better does Moxley look by the way? Hell of a promo on Wednesday, there's a handful of interesting potential feuds for him waiting.

Peter Griffin
January 23rd, 2022, 6:10 PM
Aye the side by side before and after of Mox is insane, Good on him... And fuck Bully Ray.

VHS
January 23rd, 2022, 7:02 PM
Yeah, the Bully Ray thing is just such an eye rolling reminder how carny certain wrestlers continue to be. Bully's got a decent finger on the wrestling pulse, but he does look at things from inside that world still. He can't look at things from the perspective of a normal person on some occasions, the Mox story in Exhibit A.

I can't imagine the courage it took Mox to seek help for his alcoholism. Alcohol is a mother fucker, and so for him to drop everything and enter rehab... that's real strength. Take the pro wrestling stuff out of the equation, Mox entering rehab and coming out looking better than ever deserves immense praise. But at no time would he or should he feel like he needs to apologize for anything. Bully's looking at Mox's story as something underneath the circus tent, which is why his opinion on saying Mox should have apologized is so bad. Apologize for what? Fixing himself? Oh, but think of the poor children that paid their hard earned money to see him... yeah, no regular person would look at it that way. Hence, the backlash Bully's seeing.

BGMaverick
January 24th, 2022, 12:22 AM
Ana and Jade exceeded my low expectations, especially considering they were in the main event spot for Rampage. They didn’t look out of sorts, but I think there was a case of cover you ass by having a heavy portion of the match in a commercial.

Curious when we are going to see Hook on Dynamite.

Takes some more actions, but Moxley/Danielson would be a money TNT Championship feud.

I don’t know why they did this show live. I guess they wanted to see if it’d pop a different rating.

I don't really rate Rush, he's never done anything that I've particularly found entertaining and think Martin is better off on his own until his brother gets back anyway but what type of contract did Rush have, like a 3 month contract or something, he's barely been in the company to make a deal of his contract expiring lol

I think his head is split between being an artist, which is demanding, and being an entertainer, which must be rewarding when you've got his particular skillset.

I like that he was still doing indy shows (although i haven't seen any of that recently on IG) but a part of me wishes he had stayed in MLW as he was easily their biggest hope for a second.

Watched the ladder match clip AEW put on YouTube. Cutter was rad but the Cross Rhodes was even more impressive. Nasty senton bump, as well. Finish felt like something I've seen a few times, though. Seemed like it was very good from the chunk they posted.

Also watched Danhausen's debut bit. Will be curious to see what he does.

Good way to debut Danhausen but it feels like there's an AEW debut every single week which is fun in the moment but it's just stacking bodies now with no place to put them. At some point they're going to have enough guys get lost in the shuffle that by the time they appear again it's going to feel like a debut.

they need to let a ton of contracts expire. guys like Miro, Andrade, etc are already lost in the shuffle. It looks like Andrade will feud with Darby soon at least.

When Andrade was getting the big push in NXT is when I started to feel NXT was on a downslide. I liked the presentation of Andrade and Zelina Vega don't get me wrong but IDK if I ever saw him as a top guy of any brand. What we're seeing in AEW is pretty whack imo but what do you expect when his debut was the start of a long line of meaningless debuts that we see every week.

That said, I'm not too into anything on AEW at the moment. And there are far too many kicking out of finishers for my liking, as an aside.

Well Archer is a wrecking ball but in a nutshell, Page and Dan Butler have issues where Archer had issues with Lambert. He returned from an injury looking as if to strike Lambert again but got page. An enemy of an enemy is my friend. Also Archer had to drop out the World Title tourney due to a botched moonsault on Kingston so he never got a title shot but now he has.

From the observer

John Laurinaitis called Jeff Hardy to get him back a few weeks ago, including an offer to put him in the 2022 Hall of Fame class. Hardy turned it down and asked for his drug test results because he knew he wasnít going to test positive for recreational drugs. It took Hardy and his wife six weeks to get the results back

Doesn't seem like he was on drugs. I think he was just burnt out from the travel schedule of WWE and the wear on his body.

Doesn't seem like he was on drugs. I think he was just burnt out from the travel schedule of WWE and the wear on his body.

sounds like they fired him assuming he was on drugs without actually getting the drug test results.

For anyone who cares, Meltzer gave the ladder match 5 Stars. It was damn good so I'm not surprised.

I don't know about all that. I'm not sure where that info from Dave came from, and if it came from Jeff I take it with a grain of salt. I mean....is he still that unprofessional? You don't just say fuck it mid match and bounce. And I doubt they would fire him on the spot for something like that without knowing he was on something.

You doubt they would fire him without knowing? Really? It's the WWE we are talking about. They fired Bray Wyatt and kept Jinder Mahal, Shanky, Reggie, and Dana Brooke.

What does them firing Bray Wyatt and keeping the other 4 names you mentioned have anything to do with Jeff Hardy? Yes, it's the WWE I'm talking about.

The story that was making the rounds from everyone including the Observer was that Jeff was released due to refusing to go to rehab. That isn't the first time that has happened. Even when they rehired him after his first TNA run, he told them he wasn't going to rehab and that he would just sober up on his own. This is actually on the 2-disc Hardy Boyz DVD.

But with all that said.......None of what you said has anything to do with Jeff Hardy's release. So what if they released Bray and kept those other 4? That's a totally different conversation unless Bray's release was drug related. They didn't just fire Jeff because he bailed on the match.

You said you doubt they would release him unless they knew it was for drugs. I am saying the WWE does stupid shit with their releases so I could see them releasing Jeff without knowing for sure if he was on drugs. It's very possible they assumed he was on drugs and wanted him to go to rehab without having the facts. You said you doubt they would fire him on the spot. Why doubt that? It's very possible they would do something insane like that.

If he was fired for drugs or being unprofessional then why are they so fast to offer him his job back and a hall of fame induction which requires a speech? You can't pick and choose which report to believe.

What's insane is someone leaving mid-match, going through the crowd, and then whatever happened next we don't really know. We've heard multiple stories from the same sources since it happened.

Bray Wyatt's release and Jeff Hardy's release have nothing to do with each other. Just like if you got fired from your job for being on the internet instead of working doesn't mean that was the reason everyone else gets fired from your job.

WWE should've made his ass go to rehab or fired him a lot sooner. He fucks up constantly. And what story are you even believing? The same people reporting this new info are the same ones reporting the old info. I'm not taking Jeff Hardy's word for shit, he's a known liar with a history of drug and alcohol issues who even his own family says he never accepts help. He just wants to make lawn designs and be fucked up.

I am not giving WWE the benefit of the doubt for the reason they released someone. That's my point. If a company releases someone for no reason then I can assume they will do it again in this case. Who is taking Jeff's word? If I am to believe the recent report which is why we are talking about, the WWE contacted Jeff to bring him back. Why would they bring him back for being a druggie or unprofessional? Can you answer that?

I'm not really giving credit to either I'm just saying here's what they first said, now it's something different, what the fuck? I am leaning toward the original reports being more accurate as it lines up with most if not all of Jeff's fuck ups including what, not even a year ago he was arrested for DUI? But yeah let's bring him to AEW where his brother almost died due to the wonderful medical care.

Edit: Sorry Hardy was arrest 2 years ago I think I was confusing him with an Uso.

I can't answer that because I imagine the report isn't accurate at all. Where did they get that info? I doubt Johnny Ace called up the dirt sheets.

Bottomline is we shouldn't believe any of the reports but I'm just trying to lean on being cautious and maybe Jeff Hardy needs to stay out of pro wrestling before it finally kills him.

You're right in that anything could be true and we don't really know either way. You are leaning towards Jeff being unprofessional or on drugs based on history and I am leaning towards WWE jumping the gun and making a release before they had all the info and now they are back peddling based on their history (Mickie James, Bray Wyatt, etc)

What was odd about Bray Wyatt's release? What was odd about Mickie James' release? They've released what an extreme amount of wrestlers. I am giving WWE the benefit of the doubt because of Jeff Hardy's history. You're giving too much credit to the latest info Bert posted because it makes WWE look worse than the original.

I guess the fact that I don't find Bray Wyatt's release in the same vein as Jeff Hardy's release is where the disconnect here is. I don't think Wyatt's release was strange and I definitely don't think Jeff deserved to even be in WWE or wrestling in general after the arrest in 2019.

Alright I'm back, like it or not homies...

Totally missed Rampage again because I was an emotional wreck (or because I'm never awake or on TV this time of the week), but I think my favorite part of Dynamite this week was the Inner Circle drama.
2.0 are great TV heels, completely unobtrusive as some bad guys should be (do villians really need endearing personalities?). I liked how Garcia got dumped and Proud and Powerful only needed a little help tearing through all 3 of them little jerks (although, I gotta say all "cruiserweights" look much bigger in AEW than in WWE. Can't say 2.0 look much different than the Quebecers used to look in there; it's gotta be superior camerawork).
Jericho saying his friends need to get their heads out of their asses was unintentionally humorous and old sounding, but the drama had some appeal. They really need to fix themselves! There could be bigger fish to fry in the coming weeks, we don't know!

A big downside of AEW is booking is when you really pay attention to some of the challengers for the World title and the women's title. They all kind of fall off and work with people 7-8 rungs down the ladder. What's Ruby Soho up to? What's Conti up to? Remember Nyla Jax? Me neither. I guess we need to watch more of Dark.

I don't know about that. Who was wanting to see Ruby Soho come in and get that big push? There wasn't anything organic to that. She came in, first match she becomes #1 contender and now she's on youtube.

TK wants to cycle people out but he still has 2.0 main eventing almost every week since they were released from NXT. Rampage could use some different people.

I don't know what Ruby was like pre-the E, so I don't know what anyone saw in her either. But didn't she debut the night Danielson also debuted and get a huge pop? Plus, she's got Rancid backing her up for added street-cred/credos.
I liked the highlight reel of her match with Alex Shelley, so I am at least up to see her now as opposed to when she was Riott Squad.

2.0 are a prime example of dudes wasted by WWE. They were always good and I don't think they've been too prominent in the last 6 months, but they were less likely to make a name on the indies, because their thing is nothing flashy. But why call them Ever Rise? Sounds like a Canadian boyband duo. Just call them Chip and Ethan, or whatever their names are. I can see them being the most unliked tag team in years, because they're so vanilla-is-my-favorite-fuck-you.

I dig the guy even if I didn't dig the guy, ya know?

I too like him as a dude but not a wrestler, although I think his in-ring has some upside. He was real cool on the Vampiro doc, the way he reacted to Jeff Jarrett's insanity. He seems very professional in his comments since he was released. I don't think he's the kind to burn bridges...

Nice to see Spanky on Dynamite tonight. Feel bad it is against Moxley but lets see how the match goes and if this is one off or what with Kendrick.

I personally would like to see Kross go back to Impact. I worry about AEW picking up too many people and people getting lost in the shuffle. Already starting to happen.

I like Keith Lee. Big man that can move but I am more interested to see where Mia ends up

One thing I want to mention that I forgot to last week is how scared Adam Page sounded when they announced his title defense against Hoyt was going to be a Texas Death Match.

I'm a fan of Adam Page I think the same way I was a fan of Jeff Jarrett. I always thought the WWF booked him the best. A top tier IC title contender who had a good tag run with Owen Hart. Adam Page is someone that I feel they wasted in a tag-team, he hasn't recovered from the momentum he lost back in August when he stepped away.

I feel like he's someone who they could've built the TNT title scene around but I get it....AEW has wanted Page, for whatever reason since day one to look like a star. Now it's another quick build with a crazy gimmick against someone who really hasn't been shit the entire time he's been in AEW. We have 2 guys who I think are probably meant for the tag-team/midcard world especially with Page acting shook about a TDM.

I'm in that same boat. It's cool sometimes to see a big man dive through the ropes or do a moonsault. It just depends on the moment now that damn near every larger wrassler does some type of high flying high risk OMG he shouldn't be able to do that because he's not small like Juventud type shit.

I guess what appealed to me about Keith Lee was that he had good matches with bigger guys. Dijack, Orton, Sheamus, Drew, he had some pretty damn good matches with them. But even Drew does a fucking dive lol.

The death blows were his ignorance toward the Holocaust and Sandy Hook. I'll be honest, you can speak on a lot of conspiracy theories but if you start the whole Holocaust didn't happen/was "overblown" nonsense, you better hope all you get is "released".

I probably would’ve shaved 5-10 minutes off that match but it was a really good match. Had a lot of old school flair to it.

Danielson ran down those champions rather convincingly but there was a lot of truth to it. He certainly laid out a more convincing argument to Moxley to join something than Jericho did with his attempt of getting Moxley to join the Inner Circle.

Keith Lee's indy-rific look and in-ring tendencies are almost as bad as his smugness parade (Keith Lee as a heel is gonna be the exact same thing as him as a face, except someone will tell him to shut up).

That said, the coolest parts of his matches with Dijak were the meaty portions where they would slug it out.

One thing I'm noticing is that when you leave WWE and go to AEW, you must really like their catering in comparison because so many wrestlers wind up looking like shit within a matter of months. Jericho, Moxley, Adam Cole, Danielson was looking a little on the Steve Corino twilight side. I'm not someone who's in great shape and I'm not someone who thinks everyone should look like Wardlow. It's just something I noticed with the names I mentioned, especially Cole and Danielson. Cole's never been ripped, he's always looked fat skinny, but now he looks fucking horrible.

They all looked much better than any other time in their careers when they were in NXT. Look at Roderick. Dude is looking SWEET these days.

Yeah we need more people to look like Hook. The kid reminds me of when Mad Max kills Blaster. You see this huge frame, bad as fuck, and then under the mask it's the face of 3 year old. Taz and Hook=Master Blaster.

I think Mox looks better than he is for a long time. still looks like he can legit go. Good for Renee. He's a solid 6 or 7 now.

but better for Mox. He married up. Which I can attest- a good strategy if you can pull it off.

Well here's the thing....AEW wrestlers for the most part travel less than NXT wrestlers. I don't see Adam Cole working 4-5 days a week I see him maybe working once. No excuse when you A-live nearby and B-have access to probably a much better area than what the PC can offer. The Jags aren't doing shit, get in there. See, Jericho talked about how much better catering in AEW is than WWE, he was talking about ribs, steaks, etc. No fuckin wonder Cole Bay Bay caved in. He was already a snizz.

Jericho we can let slide he's 50 and I think it's more about how he's quick to talk shit about everyone else we have to kinda dig at him.

That's one thing I always liked about Punk going back to the ROH days when he would "steal" Ricky Steamboat's arm drag just to piss him off. He's always paid homage to his idols. The Macho Man gear he rocked for awhile is one of my favorites.


Not sexy enough for you, eh? Eh.

Comparing someone's NJPW/WWE/AEW appearance is probably close enough. Although ten years is doing a number on most people.

When was the last time you hear someone bitch about a wrestler's physical appearance looking "less than" when it comes to WWE as a whole? WWE travel more than any wrestling company and their talent still finds ways to get in the gym or workout in some fashion. The excuse that NXT has the PC means nothing when Matt Riddle is looking sweet, when Apollo Crews is looking sweet, when Randy Orton at 40 is looking better than guys 10-15 years younger.

AEW doesn't even drug test so what's stopping Adam Cole from getting supplements that WWE won't allow and do it the old fashioned way?

Does it really matter how someone looks if they can deliver on the mic and in the ring? AEW runs the gamut in terms of physical appearance. You've got body guys like Pac, Wardlow, and Bowens mixed together with 90 lbs soaking wet guys like Cassidy, Darby, and Fuego. Then there's the guys who aren't swole, but still in great shape like Sammy, Andrade, and Starks. And lastly there's chubby guys like Kingston and Hardy.

it can help. I don't think everyone needs to be Lex Luger from the early 90s. However, I don't think it hurts to look really fucking strong and/or in-shape.

Not saying there's not a place for the Owens and Hooks.

But if you see a Jade Cargill or a Randy Orton, there's something to be said for the visual reaction to people who just don't look like someone you're going to meet at your local gym. Helps sell the larger than life aspects.
