    He's the modern day Scott Hall. Just hopefully without the propensity for alcohol and substance problems.

    he could really have something here. he was generic overpushed guy just because he was friends with the elite at first, but since they've started this new gimmick/angle he's been awesome.

    I always thought he had something, but now he's clicking on all cylinders.

    They seem to be switching gears. Maybe they'll keep Adam Page babyface and switch SCU heels. Kaz tried to grab the rope and the ref missed it, so he's got the bitch. Maybe they could make SCU whiny heels who feel like they're being fucked around, because they're not "Elite enough".

    My buddy got a pic with Dustin Rhodes tonight and Dustin gave him shit for wearing a custom made MOX shirt. "The official merch stand is that way. How we make our money, man." Something like that. Pretty sure he was just busting balls. That bootleg MOX shirt is way better than the stuff they're selling.

    Serious question; does anyone else know why Jake Hager hasn't wrestled a match for AEW yet? He's been on every show since the first episode, dressed like an accountant on his day off, but he hasn't had any in-ring time yet.

    It probably has something to do with him working with Bellator. That's my guess.

    That's what I was thinking too. But they haven't bothered to promote that fact.

    Damn. Canadian Destroyer and the Curtain Call/Final Reckoning and it actually beat somebody?

    Two killer moves and the guy went down, instead of running through 15 finishers, they used 2. That's a nice change of pace for AEW.

    "I want a piece of your ass."

    In another time, another place, that line would have meant something completely different for that guy.

    Okay Tony, you're like 45. And you're not a rockstar or a Harrison Ford.

    Ditch the earring.

    Fun fact: Because of a culture that hasn't been as anti-smoking as the United States and other countries, Japanese people have, on average, a 60% higher amount of oral health and tooth health issues than people in other countries.

    Britts mic skills are actually not bad. She really needs to work on her ring skill though to reach that next level.

    Five Guys > What-A-Burger.

    For the record.

    Britt Baker. She's such a fantastic heel. They've got to be building up to an angle where one of the babyface girls busts one of her teeth out of her mouth. Hopefully it won't look as fake as I Dream Of Genie getting her's knocked out last week.

    Five Guys is great, but they aren't as prevalent as Whataburger.

    To be fair, I've never been to WhatABurger. But I've been to Five Guys so many times, I needed to have my front door widened to get in and out of my house easier.

    But I'd be willing to try a WhatABurger burger.

    If they're insisting on continuing the Nightmare Collective crap, Nyla Rose would make a great addition.

    Since they turfed
    on AEW Dark. They could use new muscle.

    Whataburger probably won't change your life, but it's still pretty remarkable for a chain that size. Convenient all over Texas.

    pretty sure the stable doesn't exist anymore. Sure seems like it anyway after Brandi's recent video

    Riho is apparently really popular, though. Does good quarter hour ratings and kids love her.

    She's the child identification character of the AEW show.

    Because she looks like she's 8.

    Nyla's version of "selling" was to waddle up to her feet and then just kinda... fall down.

    ... called it.

    Sorry, kiddos.

    At least Nyla can defend it more frequently. Riho tends to have obligations in Japan.

    Wow, i actually didn't see that coming lol. If they were going to make Riho drop the belt, why not wait a few more weeks for it to happen at Revolution?

    Nyla's such a poor woman's monster heel. Her spear was whack and her powerbomb lacks impact.

    She should have beat Riho to begin with so this is a step in the better direction I guess.

    They have backstage segments during commercial breaks?

    Jeff Cobb is nice.

    I just wish Jeff Cobb could play Matanza Cueto outside of Lucha Underground.

    Imagine The Monster Matanza showing up with Dario Cueto seconding him.

    Damn right.

    Dario as the mouthpiece, and Fat Guy Uno as a regular wrestler. That'd be perfect. I can't take The Dark Order seriously, because chubsy flubsy Evil Uno looks like a fat dork in a bad Halloween costume. He doesn't sell me on a cult anyone would want to join.

    The fact that MJF just did that in front of AEW's female ref just made that bit even better.

    Christ, that's such simple heat. But it really works for a simple heel like MJF.

    Nice double cross from MJF lol. I see he's been working on it since he butchered it the first time he used it. Haha

    I think it'd be better if he always did it kind of sloppy. They could say MJF thinks he's so much better than Cody, he can beat guys with Cody's finish easier than Cody can.

    And then the first time MJF really snaps it off proper is at Revolution, Cody kicks out and MJF goes apoplectic.

    Okay, seriously, who is the Jesus who seems to follow AEW to every town for Dynamite?

    This show has been so fun tonight, I've barely been distracted by the supposed "grown man" dressed like Scooby-Doo in the front row.

    Zoinks!

    John Moxley is only the second coolest person I've seen with an eye patch this week.

    (I started watching Disney+ the other day.)

    (He's not technically a "person", but he's a humanoid-duck type creature. He counts. Close enough.)

    All joking aside, that was a really solid show.

    It seems like, when AEW has a pay-per-view to build to and have a card to focus on building, that's when they do their best work.

    My issue with the PPV date at first was that it was so far away at the time but they've really built so much stuff up well without really fucking it up.

    I like it.

    AEW doesn't have a Network-style service, where we can watch a pay-per-view for $10 a month, so they announce a major show a month out and really have to build to it. $40 for an AEW event is obviously way more of an investment than $10.

    And because they've only got one weekly TV, they need to make every week feel like destination viewing. Its a really overly "traditional" way to run a wrestling promotion. Its a "less is more" approach that actually manages to make the big matches of the big show feel, well, big.

    Not really fair to compare a fast food place to a fast casual either. Both are at the top of their category though.

    Whatburger milkshakes used to be great.

    To be completely honest, given the choice, I'd probably gobble down a couple Big Macs and a large fry from McDonald's over WhatABurger or Five Guys. I need to be in a very special state of mind to eat Five Guys. I need to be okay with feeling like a well-fed tick for a day or so after I eat there.

    All in all, I think they've really corrected course since the last show of 2019 and they're in a groove now. That was a very tight episode. Not a lot of stuff to see a fault in when you look at the entire show. To me, the biggest gripe is that it wasn't ideal to have your new champion cut a promo during a commercial. It seems that they run very hot and cold in terms of their usage with the picture in picture approach.

    Baker is continuing to find her way with her promos. More importantly, they're getting a very strong amount of heat. I guess she's going to have some extra rope in terms of completing the puzzle because as a heel she doesn't necessarily be great in the ring. She just needs to cheat and get heat.

    Cobb honestly made sense in either AEW or NXT so this is a good landing spot for him. AEW was in need of size diversity and it appears that's on the horizon for them with Cobb mingling with them, and reports of Archer, Cage, and Harper being in the mix in the near future.

    Revolution looks like:
    Moxley versus Jericho
    Cody versus MJF
    Omega and Hangman versus The Bucks
    Sammy versus Darby
    Dustin versus Hager
    Rose versus Shida or Riho (?)
    SCU versus Dark Order

    Good card.

    This could be one hell of a singles roster: Hager, Cobb, Pentagon, Fenix, Hangman, Cage, Harper, Moxley, Archer, Omega, PAC, Cody, Dustin, MJF, Jericho...

    Great episode. Things in AEW have begun to really fall into place.

    Hangman Page is quickly becoming the promotion's first real breakout star. Who would have thought that? Coupled with the solid ring work he's got personality now and people have really taken to him. I'm enjoying Omega and Page's tag run and think the Bucks feud should be what really puts the promotion's tag title division on the map. My guess is that everything was set for Page to turn on Kenny but they've changed course as a result of Page's reactions.

    Santana's sit down promo with JR about his blind Dad was class.

    Baker's heel turn has done wonders for her and this was her best bit yet. Nyla Rose takes the title from Riho which I'm cool with. The division is improving, slowly but surely. Not sure where they're going with Nyla/Omega/etc. but I'm intrigued.

    Dustin/Sammy was a great little TV match and I loved the stuff between Dustin and Hager. I'm really looking forward to that one.

    MJF continues to be a great dickhead and I was absolutely howling when JR started screaming SHUT UP at him to defend Brandi's honour. Cody/Wardlow IN THE CAGE should be a blast. As for Jungle Boy, I'm already anticipating how much fun it's going to be seeing him eventually win the big one down the line.

    Mox's entrance with the camera following him through the concourse and crowd makes him look like a huge star. I like that better than him just appearing somewhere in the crowd. Jeff Cobb is a good addition to the roster and the Inner Circle. This current version of Jericho is so entertaining as well. He looks like he's having a blast playing the part.

    Maybe the best episode of Dynamite so far.

    How certain are we that they'll introduce a midcard belt soon, most likely by years end?

    This was basically a PPV, not only that but a bloody Grade A quality PPV on a standard Dynamite episode- we as fans are getting spoilt right now, AEW kicked WWE’s ass this week ����

    The storyline’s leading to Revolution are solid AF right now along with PAC v Omega and of course “freshly squeezed” is must see every week for me ����

    Tried AEW last night, but whether it be my WWE bias or what, just wasn't feeling it. I was interested in Swagger/Rhodes, but not much else. Thought the Britt Baker promo was cringeworthy, but maybe that was the point? Women's match felt odd to me. Dunno. Maybe I'll try again next week and see what's up. I'm sure the couple of shows before the PPV will be epic. Also don't get the picture in picture part of the show. Like, I've seen it on Smackdown or RAW, but they usually do that when a match is going on, but AEW had Nyla Rose talking to Kenny Omega and I was like wtf are they saying? And Orange Cassidy too, I was like what's going on?

    JR had the line of the night:

    "Nyla Rose is now the KING of the mountain" People are like "Why did Riho lose?" Well, if you've been following twitter lately you'll know exactly why. Kenny panicked and booked his 20 year old girlfriend to job because of all the heat he's been getting and the Cornette posts toward him, HOLY SHIT, fucking goldmine.

    I like Omega very much but it's hard not to enjoy Corny ripping the fuck out of the guy.

    I'm only about 70% in, basically just haven't seen the main event but it's been a good show minus pretty much everything involving "women" and I'm just not high on the Dark Order. People keep thinking Matt Hardy, Luke Harper, it's gotta be someone from WWE apparently but I think it's going to be Christopher Daniels. They're going to try some magic shit, look at what my left hand is doing while the right does the trick.....I just keep thinking they're pulling from the HIGHER POWER angle 20 years ago when Vince joined the darkside after battling Undertaker for a little while.

    Luke Harper isn't a leader, and Matt Hardy deserves more than what we're seeing out of that stable and it just seems lazy to have it be a former WWE talent.

    Ya know, I was thinking Daniels would be a great person to lead the Dark Order. They can't drag this reveal out too much longer. If their options are limited, he's a good choice.

    The Daniels thing looks like a red herring to me and Hardy just makes sense as the Exalted One. If anything, it comes across to me that they're running the gag that Daniels was going to be the Higher Power and dropped it so they're giving the vibe he's going to be one again just to zag.

    I mean, why not? Why not use who you have and again, it screams HIGHER POWER angle. And for the super marks, you know that Russo pitched, you guessed it, Chris Daniels as the reveal. Hell, even WCW started an angle where he was coming in as the Fallen Angel and was going to do some cult type shit with Vampiro I believe but then he botched a moonsault and they cut him lol. THey cut him, but kept The Genius on the payroll for 3 years so Savage wouldn't go to the WWF.

    Does Hardy makes sense solely because of the Broken Hardy stuff? If so, I find that gimmick to be something completely different than what Dark Order is trying to do. THere's almost something comical, almost whimsical about Broken Hardy. But I'm not trying to answer for you I'm just pitching my thoughts.

    Not entirely. He's able to play darker and wicked. The eccentric part can be a take it or leave it scenario with whatever you want to make the character. He's clearly got pliability/range so it can fit.
    Then looking from a behind the scenes aspect, he makes a ton of sense as a coach and producer.

    I definitely think he'd be an asset, to any company, when it comes to behind the scenes work.

    I'm going out on a limb by saying that the sit down interview with Santana is arguably the best thing AEW has produced. I'd like to say better than any match as well, but there are a couple stellar matches I've seen in the last year so I can't give it that kind of nod. But I was like damn, this was incredible.

    It was worth it for the exposition and it could do a hell of a job in subversive way to undermine Jericho. The way they've portrayed Santana and maybe Ortiz, you'd think you could learn to love or enjoy them if it was actually presented in a favorable way. You can see them as guys (mainly Santana) who have been wronged by the randomness of life. A good back story would be that Jericho manipulated them and their street smarts/toughness to give them a better life but they're underlings and Jericho needed the muscle.

    Speaking a muscle, Hager isn't saying much but he seems to be softening. The way he came on AEW programming to seeing him actively look for the camera and cheesing for it seemed interesting...especially in light of Cobb and his demeanor.

    Well, I think the original reason is because people kept hyping him up to Cornette then someone showed Cornette the match Omega had against a 9 year old girl, then a blow up doll, and he just lost his shit. I also think his tight butthole friendship with The Young Bucks, who never got a long with Jim dating back to Jim being in Ring of Honor and maybe even TNA.



    This is some brand new shit that they're going head to head about which also includes the heel turn by Dave Meltzer on his long time friend Jim Cornette---the fact JC was cool with Meltzer is probably more mind blowing than anything but he doesn't jerk off Meltzer and has no problem calling him out on his shit but he's somewhat respectful about it. Until Dave fucked up.

    Apparently Jeff Cobb is still free agent? If they don't sign him, i think it would be kind of stupid to put him in an angle with Moxley just for him to leave in a couple weeks

    Depends on the line of thinking in regards to making it kind of stupid.

    Cobb: Different audience, top tier opponent, and get to market yourself to whoever you want.
    AEW: Show you're willing to play ball with different organizations who have someone under some kind of contract, show you're open to different characters getting a spotlight moment.

    Chris Jericho bringing in "bounty hunter" types to soften up Jon Moxley ahead of their pay-per-view match is just another AEW rehash of the NWA angle where the heels put a bounty on Dusty Rhodes' head and different guys came in and out of the territory trying to collect on it. Its a nice way to bring some guys in for short stints without needing to make them permanent players.

    Since AEW and MLW seem to have some kind of working relationship - or at least they share some talent, I'd be super hyped if AEW brought in Jacob Fatu to work with Moxley. He'd be perfect for the role.

    Makes sense when you put it that way. It would be a nice addition if he was there permanently though.

    I don't have a problem with them bringing in talent on a temporary basis. It adds to the unpredictability of the show.

    If the in-house talent is driven, they'll also use it as motivation to show AEW doesn't need wrestler x to fill that role because they're just as valuable or more...which helps AEW in the end. Not very many scenarios where this hurts AEW.

    Yup, it really is a win/win.
