    I didn't see the ppv but I did catch the last half of the Joe/MJF v. Ass Boys match.

    Honestly didn't look like a bad show on paper and from what I'm hearing it was 50/50. I thought Edge and Sting looked cool.

    For all the people acting like AEW was some straight up ROH/New Japan type promotion until recently what show have you cats been watching? Almost everything with Jericho and MJF for the last couple years has been a joke for the most part. Orange Cassidy anyone? Luchasaurus and Jungle Boy, I mean the list can keep going of "WWE style" gimmicks, storylines, it's not even a WWE thing it's pro wrestling. They've been doing goofy shit since the 70's. I mean, did we all forget how Jade Cargill was introduced? The fact is, AEW tv numbers haven't really changed over the years. The live attendance is here and there.

    yeah, exactly. AEW was never this pure sports presentation and i don't think they'd ever have success with that model. what i think is happening is it's really hard for a lot of people to correctly diagnose why something is going bad when it's going bad, so people see the decline in the quality of AEW's product and they grasp for explanations, and "they're becoming too much like WWE" is one that happened to catch on.

    though i'd disagree about their numbers not really changing. in 2021 they were much closer to WWE's numbers and looked poised to possibly catch up to them, but then their product steadily deteriorated and WWE's left them in the dust, sadly.

    Do you think their numbers have dropped due to the loss of CM Punk?

    It just feels like Dynamite has always hovered between 7-900 with the 1 mill shows here and there. I get that people watch tv differently now but when we're talking about a show that is cable driven, and if we're also factoring in DVR numbers, are AEW's numbers that good? WWE, I'll make the argument you can watch all 3 of their shows on Hulu the next day. You can DVR. You can wait a little and stream them on Peacock. I think if AEW had those same options their cable numbers would be even lower but maybe the streaming numbers would make up for it. I have to go out of my way to watch AEW's 3 main shows whereas if they were on Hulu, Max, etc. it'd be 100x easier.

    IMHO, CM Punk embodies what 90% of AEW's fanbase identifies with. They don't want to be MJF or Hangman Page or Kenny Omega they want to be CM Punk. With that said, I don't think it's done as much damage as some might think but I do think now after he's been gone a few months that the loss is still noticeable. I'm just shocked the crowd doesn't chant his name like they did in the WWE after he was gone. So many AEW fans are scared they have that herd/cult mentality. Look what happens when someone says something negative about AEW it turns into a mobhit on Twitter lol.

    Why is some of their fanbase so sensitive? It's worse than pro sports rivalries. On the plus side you can be on different sides of wrestling and not end up getting stabbed in the parking lot after.

    There are people that are fans of all the different wrestling companies that are sensitive. Not just AEW fans.

    So since Danielson has never gotten to do a G1 Khan made one of us own for Danielson to compete in. Starts this week and don't even have the full list of people in it.

    Kingston will put both titles on the line each match he is in and the winner of this tournament becomes a triple champion but winning his titles and the new title being created for the winner of this tournament. Trying to figure out why the need for another title. We have two lower singles titles along with tag and trios titles. Like why do we need another one?

    I mean I am big AEW fan but geez.

    Looks like MJF has re-signed with AEW luckily.

    MJF would get totally lost in the WWE. So would 90% of the AEW roster. Cody is over in WWE, because he was WWE first and he has been treading water since after Mania. Unless you were in the Shield, HHH doesn't seem to want to push you on the men's side. As much as I think WWE has way more talent for the women, I feel like WWE is wasting a good chunk of them.

    Cody's first run with WWE felt like he had a lot of room for improvement. He left, traveled the world, improved big time and came back to WWE. I think you're wrong that he's over because he was in WWE first but that's just like your opinion man, so it's cool.

    Why stop there? Why not have AEW Woman’s Tag titles? TBS Women’s Tag titles? AEW intergender tag titles? Women’s trios titles.

    Hell let’s have the annual Tony Khan Trophy battle royal lol

    Even Danhausen will probably win a belt at some point there’s that many.

    I think about how over the years I was kind of lost interest with promotions that had a ton of belts. NWA/WCW in the 80's early 90's with shit like the US 6-Man Tag Title or whatever and they'd have the NWA Southern Pacific Champion. 2001 WWF when they had the WCW titles in the mix and even though I respect the brand split I still think some titles suffer more than others. AEW...what the hell? The roster needs it but the roster is too big anyway. That goes back to the stables. All these stables and random tag-teams and shit that doesn't really stick....idk.

    yeah they have a bloated roster and already enough titles.

    I am pretty sure they are just working their way up to being like New Japan and just about everyone is in a faction.

    Also got round to Full Gear last night. Swerve/Hangman was my MOTN. There’s been (a lot) of hardcore brutality blood and violence but this one definitely still stands out. The story considering how Swerve crossed the line invading Hangman’s house (through a conveniently unlocked door lol) probably called for Hangman to ultimately win in the end but do understand they want to give Swerve the bigger push. Probably yet another challenger for MJF down the line.

    MJF/White..that’s the first time White’s been pinned since joining AEW right? I can suspend disbelief a bit I guess over his first loss being to a one-legged man because the Cole/MJF bromance is so over at the moment.

    Also where’s Waldo…sorry Wardlow? I actually hope this Devil mask man thing is him as not been since his threats to MJF.

    I thought the use of the staple gun was unnecessary. So are light bulbs, pizza cutters, barb wire, flaming tables. All just absurdity. Keep it simple, ladders, tables and chairs, with the odd kendo stick please. Also, blood isn't needed every show.

    Fixed it for ya.

    I’ve heard there’s probably another promotion out there somewhere that does that lol.

    Although I think the staplegun and Hangman’s kid’s drawing did add to the story. I don’t mind the over the top weapons now and again but make it more meaningful and sparing. This was a BLOOD feud so can understand turning up the violence here.

    He isn't the devil. He was definitely one of the masked group that attacked Acclaimed the other week though; You could tell by the way he stands/holds himself (He threw Bowens through the window). So he's back to being a flunky again...

    Okay lineup for Continental Classic

    Blue League
    Bryan Danielson
    Andrade El Idolo
    Brody King
    Claudio Castagnoli
    Daniel Garcia
    Eddie Kingston

    Gold League
    Jon Moxley
    Swerve Strickland
    Rush
    Mark Briscoe
    Jay Lethal
    Jay White

    Rules for the Continental Classic tournament include:

    20-minute time limit
    3 points for a win
    1 point for a draw
    Everyone is banned from ringside

    Finale at Worlds End

    Winner becomes ROH Champ, NJPW Strong Champ and Continental Champ.

    Should be some good matches in there.

    Who do you think comes out on top? Danielson has to be a favorite but not sure he comes out on top.

    I keep thinking they're going to hotshot Garcia into something at some point. I still don't know that I see it, but it feels like AEW is higher on him than me.

    I like Garcia but they seem to stop and go with him.

    I agree that towards top of who may win is White and Swerve followed by Mox and Danielson.

    When we finally have every tournament winner in a tournament, that's going to be won by Mox.


    Or Adam Cole.



    One or the other.

    Khan being the…well silent is not quite the word as loves the Twitter lol but a squeaky-voiced Khan going full mental against MJF would be GOLD! Worked shoot stuff like “fuck off to Vince next year!” :lol. I’m

    This is maybe just me but naming them “Gold” and “Blue” especially when you have someone like Danielson in the “Blue” league like it’s secondary especially seems wrong.

    Something like League One and League Two more neutral would have been better.

    And I say that saying Blue is my favourite colour but calling one league Gold like they’re the top is a bit of a misnomer IMO.

    Although it might be the colour schemes of Dynamite and Rampage tbf but still would have preferred neutral terms. Not everyone might get that lol.

    Oh very probably, but was still curious about the colours lol.

    Regardless we’ll get some banging matches and that’s the most important thing.

    I do like the wrinkle of interference/DQ costing points.

    I'm like 90% sure the "gold" and "blue" league distinction is an X-Men reference. In the 90s they had the two different books running at the same time and two separate teams. Neither was meant to be better or worse than the other.



    Also, I think adding a new title is dumb, but I think the Continental Classic will be fun. Also just watched Full Gear last night and thought it was pretty great overall. Swerve/Hangman was nuts, and I was happy Julia won the TBS title.

    I like that they are doing a tournament like this but hate that they are adding a new title. Guess they didn't want to completely copy New Japan and just give the winner a shot at the title. lol

    Never really watched a ton of X-Men but I looked up the references and that makes a ton of sense.

    Yeah, doesn't make much sense to me. It would be one thing if instead of the NJPW Strong title, it was the International title which would mean they're potentially folding it into a new belt. But adding an extra belt altogether just doesn't make much sense to me. Even with the size of their roster.

    it's a new belt to create a modern, american based triple crown. the international title has gotten too hot with the first OC reign and mox getting involved in the picture, basically catapulting past the tnt title as the second tier men's singles title. they wouldn't fold that into a title consolidation, and the tnt title has been stablized with the christian storyline, so that wasn't gonna happen either. it's likely the three titles won't be defended separately, and by all accounts will be defended amongst all three companies that are involved.

    Didn't have to be specifically the international title, that was just an example. But I think the issue is more that we need less ROH titles on AEW and less oversaturation of the title lineup, both of which are compounded by making this Triple Crown Championship.

    I'm still down for the tournament, and I felt the same about the International Title and it's become a worthy addition. But it still seems like they would be better suited to give the winner a title shot at one of the current ones than award a brand new prize

    I briefly thought that myself but it's probably the Jaguars colours (wiki says it's teal, but teal league?)

    Gold: Mox or Strickland (depending how hard they want to push him)

    Looking forward to Swerve vs White & Danielson vs Castagnoli.

    Lethal and King to get the wooden spoons in their leagues.

    I think Psycho’s right in that it’s an X-Men reference to their blue and gold teams.

    Guess Khan’s an X-Men mark.

    I thought about it being an X-Men reference as well but then I was like naw that's the super nerd in me creeping out lol. It has to be a nod to them right? Tony's our age he probably grew up with the books and the trading cards.

    I used to have a fattrading card collection, my favorites were the Metal series. That Magneto one was a personal fave.

    My mom was a regional manager for Spencer's and would get discounts on boxes of these cards. Marvel, DC, and I think Image had a few series as well. Those Metal series cards are fucking incredible. I miss those days.

    Another guy AEW and TK fumbled.

    In all seriousness, QT seems like one of those cats who can teach. Think about the great trainers like Dr. Tom. He's helped develop some of the biggest names of all time and still trains. You think of Matt Bloom aka A-Train/Prince Albert/Giant Bernaard whatever you knew him as. Phenomenal coach. Sarah Del Ray, never even wrestled for WWE aside from maybe a few dark matches and IMO is the best female trainer in North America. Hands down. If he's really leaving I see his services at the Nightmare Factory keeping the lights on and probably will wind up at the PC. Personally IDGAF about the guy and think he's corny.

    Yeah he is a great teacher from what I can tell and he also did production and other stuff as well. So honestly in a way it is a hit to AEW. From a wrestler stand point not having QT on tv is no biggie. Hasn't been on tv for a while and been wrestling more in Mexico for AAA. But for other things it can be considered a hit.

    Been seeing reports that Danielson was on committee that fired Punk....

    Tony Khan hates two initials and a last name.

    CM Punk
    QT Marshall

    And let's not even talk about how he refuses to sign TJ Perkins.


    I don't know why the wrestling media is so afraid to discuss this.

    Not a big deal? They were going to revise that very topical TMZ parody and that was going to hit big soon.



    That was going to be even bigger than Gtv, if you can believe it.

    Interesting about Danielson but then again TK did say if something were to happen and he couldn't run the company he would give it to Danielson. I just think that whole Punk situation was like something out of a movie lol. But there are many wrestlers who have negative opinions and sometimes you wonder-are they just saying it for clicks and views or do they really feel that way? Is it that deep? I think for a couple wrestlers it definitely is but think about how we never really heard anyone speaking ill about him while he was in WWE. He didn't really have any issues that we knew about until after the fact and shit we've heard wrestlers bury the WWE worse, they've filed lawsuits, etc. and they come back and bury the hatchet...for now.

    Danielson probably knew deep down the obvious-WWE is going to probably pick this guy up. And if they didn't, eh. People are right, Punk saw that AEW wasn't a complete joke and there was real money so he wanted in on it too. I'm sorry that he didn't go wrestle for MLW for $200 a week on RokuTV. He made his money and I'm sure TK paid him in full for whatever he was promised over X amount of years it's chump change to him.

    WWE being selective on who they take that works for AEW is smart. We have 2 promising young talents like Jade and Pillman Jr. You have Cody Rhodes who's arguably the biggest face in wrestling. Then you have Old Man Logan CM Punk. A veteran who proved that after so many years still has the ability to draw fans in and yeah maybe his body is fucked it's been fucked for 20+ years but squeeze the juice motherfuckers.

    You never know. May see TJP at some point in AEW. 3 members of the United Empire are in AEW so he could show up. Or not.

    Since Cody's neck tattoo is the greatest tattoo of all time, right above Dave Batista's belly button tattoo, all tattoos are worse.

    I never liked Brock Lesnar's sword. Would have been better with a real sword design.

    No wrestling tattoo will ever be as bad as Icarus’ back piece. Everyone can get the Cody neck tattoo and they wouldn’t be as bad as that.

    Lesnar's tramp stamp that says Kill 'Em All is the worst wrestling tat of all time but Icarus is top 5. Especially early on it just looked so bad like Max Payne bad.

    If Tony Khan had been around 10-15 years ago, Icarus and FIST would be what Omega and the Bucks are. The Bucks actually make Icarus look like 2023 Orton.

    I assume Icarus got it finished and/or covered? I can only find newer pics of him from the front but he has a shitload more ink so I would assume it doesn't still look like that...

    Shit when I first saw Icarus 90% of that shit wasn't even there it was just some shitty ass looking wings that looked like a blind biker did it on meth. King of Trios 2008 I think. I think now he wears a shirt because it looks fucking stupid.

    It's crazy how a lot of cats we see in AEW flying around were marks for these guys. Chuck Taylor was the shittiest one of them all, Gargano was even part of this crew but Akuma and Icarus were part of that OG CHIKARA group that so many people ripped off and pretended it was just some comedy HUSTLE wannabe promotion. I loved it. King of Trios was the best tournament on the indies after the Super 8 became worthless.

    Yeah “missed” lol. Great segment though, the real swerve was Adam swerving the swerve. I can understand Montreal but was still hoping it would be on PPV. Maybe it still will be if there’s shenanigans.

    Speaking of swerve, Swerve/White for a heel vs heel match was pretty damned good! I want Swerve to win this whole thing, push him to the moon!

    Also MJF’s line “not here to line his pockets”…very sly Punk bomb.

    My favorite part of MJF's promo is where he brought up the WWE again.

    They did. They turned him into Alex Wright after building him up as the next Bryan Danielson. This is what happens when someone says "Tony, this is WBD, we need your ratings to stop sucking dick worse than TNA when Hogan was there, step it up and get some dancing!" So now we have Swerve and Garcia out there shuckin and jivin

    Yeah retconning on him being a “wrestler” was a mistake I think and just going back to Jericho. It would’ve been more interesting if they pushed that further.

    Yeah, that was one I said I was looking forward to and it delivered. I don't know if we get to Swerve/Max or if there's a transitional champ, but Swerve should be the world champion in the near future.
    Also, fully fit Top Flight vs fully fit Private Party is the match I didn't know I wanted, but when is Marq Quen going to be cleared?
    And is it me, or is Toni Storm chanelling Maggie Thatcher in some of her words?

    Holy shit. Abadon was on Collision last night, it's not Halloween, and they're apparently starting an angle with Julia Hart?

    Yeah, I liked that. She's probably ultimately just gonna be fed to Julia, but if they at least build it up to World's End and let Abandon be on tv doing something for a few weeks, that would be sick.


    Overall I enjoyed Collision last night. Bryan/Kingston was great, and so far the whole Continental Classic has been awesome. Still iffy on it being for a new title, but they're doing their damnedest to make it seem like it matters. I think they fucked up not putting Miro in it though.

    I'm torn between whether I want Golden Jets to win the tag titles to drop them to Hobbs/Takeshita for a good reign or whether I went House of Black to get it.

    Also despite complaints of the WWE mention, I like what MJF is doing with the Joe feud. It was nice to see someone give him on-screen flowers like that and felt it was a necessary part of the message. Joe probably doesn't win at World's End(I assume the Devil shows up to be the ultimate usurper), but it should feel like a pretty big match.

    MJF's comments about Samoa Joe were ridiculous though. For one, he was in TNA for 10 years and had 1 world title reign. He on the main roster in WWE in his 40's, injured more often than not, and MJF says "WWE should've given him a World title run" That's not giving someone their flowers that's trying to act like Joe was never even in multiple World title programs against Brock Lesnar, AJ Styles, plus his dominant run in NXT. If he beats MJF I will come back and decapitate myself lol. And did people forget they've already wrestled and Joe lost....? It was literally within the last couple months. MJF is being spread too thin because let's be honest...we're just watching wrestlers level up inside the ring but then what? Orange juice matches with Sebastian Bach Jericho?

    Mox/Rush was a hot start. A lot of physicality, and a great spotlight match for Rush.

    Roddy just needs to stop acting. This wheelchair stuff has been kinda funny, but I honestly have no interest in whatever The Kingdom ends up doing.

    Not sure where Hangman/MJF is going. Hangman being the devil wouldn't make a lot of sense, nor do I think it would be a satisfying reveal, as much as I enjoy Hangman. But I like the historic tension between the two.

    I never really cared for Mark Briscoe as a singles guy, but he's really been working his ass off this tournament. Speaking of which, Swerve is absolutely on fire right now. Kind of hoping he doesn't win this so he can move into the World Title picture, but he's probably not the Devil, and the Devil is likely to be the one to take the title.

    I liked the spot in Storm/Blue where Toni got on Luther's shoulders. It was a nice use of the valet. But they gotta get that timing right for the black abd white filter mid match. They missed like every cue.

    I fell asleep during White/Lethal. This is probably the matchup I was least interested in seeing for the whole tournament, and it was fine for what I caught, but obviously just a rebound for White.

    Cage/Copeland was a really good veteran match. They both have a style and moveset that's conservative but impactful. Something I thought was really cool is how much Cope's moveset almost seems built to counter Christian's offense, with the way he countered the spear and Killswitch with the Impaler and Edge-o-matic. Also the leapfrog counter into the Killswitch was awesome. Kinda feel mixed about the finish, but I figured something screwy would happen. It at least makes sense with Adam doing the conchairto into her son, and I'm at least curious how far they go with this. But I'm expecting we probably get a rematch at World's End.

    Overall, pretty good episode Dynamite with some weaker parts.

    Any truth to the rumor Danielson is hurt again?

    That Rush/Mox match was....something lol. I liked Mox better when he was a drunk that bled everywhere now he's taking family Christmas pictures and trying to botch every move people do to him.

    I'd say the fact he's booked to wrestle on both Rampage and Collision would say otherwise, but it wouldn't be the first time Khan as done something similar lol.

    Yeah I was thinking about how Moxley was supposed to wrestle after getting dumped on his head and concussed and then the night of or whatever they announced nope sorry he's not cleared. If it's storyline....thank God. Danielson is one of my favorites but it's been clear as crystal for awhile his body is paying a serious price. And I never really thought he had a crazy style or anything compared to others. It just shows how good he is to be 41-42 and despite his injuries he's still one of the best on the planet.
