    I don’t think he would in all honesty, it’s be like a rook moving sideways or backwards in a chess game and he’s actually getting a bit more of a push and TV time lately plus social media attention with UUDD. Fair enough it’s taken a while but with the growing attention he’s getting now plus the bucks, he’d be fucking daft to jump ship. AEW would probably waste him to say “look at me, they were shit to me” when right now they’re being really good and he’s even dropping DaParty references.

    Rooks do move sideways and backwards (and forwards) so I don't get the analogy. Pretty sure he's getting a push because his contract expires around Wrestlemania. They always push people to try to get them to re-sign, and then stop it when they re-sign.

    It wouldn’t be a push forward (yes I know rooks can but that’s my point).

    The real point here is though he’s getting attention now on TV with a Shinsuke angle and on social media with UUDD right now plus the money. It’s be a helluva chance just to blow all that off on a whim on the chance that he may or may not be more successful.

    Brodie Lee was in line to be a huge star in AEW after betting on himself and Claudio could do it too. He's been around forever and he's friends with a lot of the AEW guys already. We'll just have to wait and see what happens.

    Brodie (God rest his soul) didn’t really do himself much favours and was outspoken. Good worker but also age on his side so it’s hard to say how much he would have progressed. While there’s a point whether that may have been the right move for Brodie given how AEW love their vets, it’s far more arguable now whether it’s the right move for Cesaro.

    Cesaro’s been in the trenches yes but he’s hitting a really high point right now even if it’s taken a while. I think he should stay put. Also think of the DaParty UUDD merchandise too. He’s featured on TV and social media every week and making good money right now. A potentially but not guaranteed higher card placement on an upstart (in comparison) company on lesser wages may not be the best move for him.

    Claudio is 40, Brodie died at 41. I can't stress enough that I don't think his high point on TV stays. If he re-signs he'll get moved back to the midcard. It's been reported Vince doesn't think he has "it" many times and Vince is still running things even if he's not there as much anymore. It really just depends how content he is with his position and the idea that he'll never be a world champion in WWE. Maybe he's like Shinsuke and will just take the money and accept complacency or maybe he's like Brodie and knows he's capable of more and wants to show it, only time will tell.

    Sometimes it’s not all about being the world champion. Cesaro is getting a shit-ton of exposure especially at this point right now so I would venture to think he’s quite satisfied.

    Closing a loop here, multiple reports have indicated that Cesaro re-upped with WWE.

    One report also noted he was set to take Nakamura's role in the gauntlet match on Smackdown a few weeks back. Whoever was taking that role was set to turn face and it ultimately went to Nakamura.

    So this report came from Meltzer. According to him, Bryan suggested that Cesaro needed to run the gauntlet and turn face in the process. Cesaro had yet to re-sign yet so they opted to go with Nakamura. That said, Meltzer is saying that this turn isn't really amounting to much in the grand scheme of things.

    Shame really if that’s true, a Reigns/Nak feud this month before Mania could have been grand.

    Wild new deck. It certainly followed the trend of how Cesaro adapts to change:

    Love that deck and how Chugs didn't understand it at first (as usual) but once he did he cleaned up! Great punishment song as well!

    Mia is very terrible at this.

    Chugs on the other hand can’t remember which Uno cards he had in his hand a minute ago yet can take over the world. What a complex individual!

    They could also do a Miz vs Breeze rematch title vs title after the humiliation Miz suffered last time. He will be completely insufferable.

    He basically said this during this week's game lol. Good cleanser to go back with the traditional Uno. The first game was a marathon. It almost looked like the guy who got out of the gates with a 2-0-0-0 lead was going to blow it.

    Will catch up on Uno later today but wanted to say the Tekken series the other night was also great and hope they do it regularly.

    Bless the Power Game. Joe is fantastic!

    Happy 50th Uno Episode to DaParty!

    - The end of the second round with all the +5s and Chug’s reaction was great.
    - The bonehead play/honest mistake by someone at the end was epic.
    - The whole build-up at the end as to who was going to sing yet you could see it coming!

    What an amazing game episode this was! Merchandise, bonehead plays/honest mistakes, saltiness, the winner grittily singing “You are my sunshine” on the way to victory and a hell of a choice and performance on the punishment song!

    Look at UUDD/Da Party getting that bag from Snickers. Good for Adam Cole and the Bay-Bays.

    That second game was one of the wildest and most entertaining games they've ever had. Breeze was wild during that one lol.

    Breeze's impulses totally destroyed whatever hope there was for anyone but Swiss lol.

    #JusticeForChugs

    But that song was a banger. That song is so good lol.

    That game really did have everything. The hilarious highlight was obviously asking Creed "what color do you want" and he replied "seven." It was also wild that Creed gave the game away at the end, after he rushed to an early 2-0-0-0 lead. Hilarious punishment.

    Creed would have had it in that third game if it weren't for Breeze/Swiss actually cahooting with Breeze answering the question! Common enemy lol.

    And Breeze butchered that song but hilarious nonetheless!

    I'm still waiting for all the alter-egos if "Ronald" has survived.

    Crazy marathon there on the back end of the matchup. That certainly had to make them regret going first-to-five lol.

    Probably because he was missing Fat Guy. Three epic games and then the last one 60 secs of Chugs bone-headedness.

    Also I see they're changing the scoring to a point whoever wins overall on the day which is a good move as much easier to follow. Also the lemon sucking punishment is becoming a regular thing though I wonder they'll move onto other foodstuffs lol.
