    There's a definite dearth of challengers right now for Mox's title, but it seems like they're starting to build some guys up. And there's always --

    - Jericho (Again)
    - MJF
    - Lance Archer (if he doesn't win the TNT Title)
    - Kenny Omega
    - "Hangman" Adam Page
    - PAC
    - Matt Hardy
    - Dustin Rhodes
    - Darby Allin

    Granted, a couple of those guys are faces, but Moxley is the kind of babyface who wouldn't mind beating up other faces. Mox could be a great long-term fighting champion, if they just keep building guys up, building to a major pay-per-view or even a TV special, and blowing it off and then building up the next guy and so on and so on. Its Wrestling Booking 101. Mox won the title in a well-executed story and then defended his title in a killer match against Jake Hager. This weekend, there's not much doubt that Moxley is going to vanquish redneck Charles Manson.

    Its classic territory booking on TV. Build up a challenger by having the challenger beat jobbers and underneath guys for a while, challenge the champion, and the champion turns them away in great match at a big event.

    But we need to see another long-term feud eventually. Because Moxley can't live on filler feuds alone for too long.

    That Fenix bump last night and Cassidy fucking himself up.



    That was all kinds of messy. It was so bad, when they cut away from the clusterfuck pileup after the last guy hit his dive and cut back, you could hear (I think) Colt Cabana yelling at Kip Sabian or somebody (it looked like Kip) something to the extent of "back off him, bro!" or something like that. Definitely not in-character. Colt was worried about somebody in that car crash pileup being really hurt.

    Kenny and Hangman are tag team champions though. I feel like maybe Hangman should have won the titles with someone else and maybe Kenny challenging Mox

    Joey Janella looks like the Wendy's girl after an eight month meth binge with that fucking hair.

    Joey Janella grew up with both of his biological parents, but they still treated him like a redheaded step-child.

    Talked to Brian Cage on Twitter once: Love the fact that his finish - The Drill-Claw - is actually named after one of Wolverine's moves from Marvel vs. Capcom.

    Britt's really starting to grow on me. She is a fantastic heel and on the mic. I hope she has a speedy recovery

    The Revival should be called The Resistance or The Resistants because they resist anything that doesn't fit the mold of what they think tag team wrestling should be.

    Britt riffing in the "crowd" to Jericho's theme was great too.

    I thought the segment with the bucks and Hardy was leading to him going back to the original Hardyz look which was pretty similar to current bucks and not his forgettable look as a heel.

    Prediction -- By December 2021, Hikaru Shida will have a new name, a better grasp of English, and be working with Charlotte Flair in the WWE.

    She's too good for this company's women's division.

    I can't think of a bigger nightmare Hell scenario than The Best Friends vs. Sabian and The Plague Mutant on pay-per-view for the Tag-Team Titles.

    AEW just posted a picture on their Instagram account revealing a new FTR shirt that says F*ck The Rest. So, im assuming that's what FTR stands for?

    Penelope Ford's blonde hair has gone passed the point of "platinum blonde" and now she looks like a silver-haired old woman.

    They're really promoting Fyter Fest as taking place "some time this summer"?

    They're saving the show until the Coronavirus is over and people can come back.

    They should keep these cheerleaders around for as long as they're taping in Daly's Place. They could be the AEW version of the Nitro Girls.

    Kind of a cringe segment. Basically ripping off the tyson/austin segment like 22 years ago. Kind of lame in my opinion.

    Ripping it off and doing it worse. Tyson was a fucking beast in 1998, when he could have beaten Austin to death with one arm behind his back. Now Mike's a gibbering old man who looks like a deflated balloon. He's not scary anymore. He's actually kind of adorable. Like a declawed kitten who could still probably punch your face into a fine paste.

    Sigh...

    i seem to love everything you folks hate and hate everything you folks love.

    If you simply hate an angle because it's a copy of an older angle, forget it, every single angle being done nowadays is inspired by something from the past.

    And Tyson sure still looks scary when you compare him to your average person, or even boxer, just as your average 1998 wrestler/'superstar' seems much more intimidating than today's do.

    The opener was decent enough but it was all about the post match stuff. Saw a note that today was the 24-year anniversary of Scott Hall popping up on WCW for the first time. Guess that was enough of a trigger point for FTR.

    Think the segment with Britt needed to be tightened up a little bit but it was funny. They definitely got lucky that Britt's not severely injured.

    There's a fine line Cody seems to walk whenever he gets into these longer promos. It can almost come off at times like he's trying to be a heel. I guess the stuff with Butcher & Blade (and Bunny) is still that's been played out on Dark and they're no longer a trio. Considering me uninterested in see what comes of Butcher & Blade and Allie going after Marshall.

    Interesting to see them teasing dissension between MJF and Wardlow. Jungle Boy is good enough to be the winner of the battle royal but this is just set up to be another instance where he gets a spotlight loss. That's going to become a tired trope for him sooner rather than later.

    The final segment was alright. It was a blatant rehash of the Tyson/Austin segment from Raw but it clearly had many factors that worked against it in trying to live up to that original. I guess the segment was good but I have my suspicions in regards to this being able to really move the meter for AEW.

    Yeah Tyson in AEW in 2020 doesn't create much, if any buzz like it did in 98. Maybe in 2037 they'll sign Floyd Mayweather to face the biggest man in their company which after watching the battle royal is Billy Gu... oh I mean Billy.

    Vickie yelling are you kidding me? Made me laugh, WWE really does own everything... even excuse me!

    I get wanting to bring Tyson in to create news stories, but why redo an angle from 22 years ago? Jericho is no Austin, and 2020 Tyson is no 1998 Tyson. It's like when TNA duplicated the Montreal Screwjob.

    Surely they could have come up with something new and fresh for Tyson to do. Man, I would have started with Jericho, Moxley, and Dustin Rhodes to help get eyes on the product, but then hire an ex WWE guy like one or two a year. With Lee, Hardy, and the Revival all joining in the span of 3 months, it's a bit too much, in my opinion. Are we going to get a FTR promo that bashes WWE and their tag team division? Probably.

    TNT title being defended every week is a cool idea, it brings back memories of John Cena's US title challenges, which I beleive Stardust challenged him for.

    Honestly, AEW doing this Mike Tyson angle with Connor McGregor or even Floyd Mayweather would have been money. Because those two guys are still killers. Mike Tyson is just the goofy guy with a silly cartoon and the "Hangover" movies to his credit now.

    He's as dangerous as a box of big fluffy ducks.

    Tyson in '98 was a guy who could turn your face into a fine, red mist with one punch. He was a fucking lunatic who beat rape charges and ended fights in 3 rounds or less. The guy hit like a subway train. And WWF got him right after the Holyfield ear biting thing.

    AEW is totally trying this about 15 years too late. And with the wrong guy.

    Pretty sure Mike Tyson could knock a lot of people out with one punch still to this day, but I think his time has come and gone as a box office attraction.

    There's no doubt Tyson still has KO power. And from what I've been hearing/reading, some people are getting excited at the thought of Mike getting back in the ring. I honestly do believe if Tyson fought Holyfield in some glorified exhibition match on PPV, i think it could hit a million buys. The match would probably be boring as fuck but still.

    The thing I see with Tyson, which clearly came across on TV, is that he's probably less controlled or given more free reign on TV. That's probably not a good thing and can distort a message that you're trying to present. Jericho was trying to deliver a strong promo but Tyson was kind of just all over the place with what he was trying to do.

    You can definitely tell the ones in this conversation who are apparently oblivious to anything BUT pro wrestling.

    Mike Tyson for one is and always be a top draw. Show me any proof he's not and I'll gladly accept that proof.

    For two, his name is all over the fucking place right now so if you think AEW is somehow late to the party think again. You have the most famous boxer on the fucking planet headlining every major website. He's always going to be relevant because he's Mike Tyson.

    The truth is, the people saying Tyson isn't this or that are the same people who know maybe 1 active boxer today IF THAT.

    Tyson right now could draw at the very least 800k ppv buys if he came back. He would sell out any arena. This is HUGE for AEW. I'm not saying it'll do the same for them as it for WWF back in 1998 because they don't have someone as red hot as Stone Cold on their roster so yeah let's put some fucking respect on Tyson's name.

    ^ This

    He's literally been all over the sports news the past few weeks with his training videos and the rumored comeback. If this was 10 years ago when he was more out of shape you could almost say ok he's at a low ebb but right now? This is a hot ticket

    he was being rumored for a fight with tyson fury, which obviously isn't going to happen, but shows he is still pretty relevant.

    Tyson would get destroyed to be honest, lol. He was already well past his best at 38, lol. What makes everyone think he's going to beat guys in their prime at 53? I think some people are getting a little too excited in hoping the Tyson at 23 is going to come back. Ain't gonna happen. But if he came back and fought i would most definitely watch it though lol. If he does come back for a fight, i hope it's someone around his age.

    Of course. It'll just be interesting to see if that translates to more eyeballs tuning into AEW on a steady and consistent basis. I think it's possible but I don't think it's likely.

    Minus the Tyson stuff, this was an amazing episode of wrestling. This show is heads and shoulders above anything that WWE is doing. Love the FTR stuff, Cassidy is my spirit animal, love new heel girl, Brit's Conspiracy board and Cody's promo. Moxley on commentary was great. Cage needs Taz. I want an Inner Circle shirt.

    That was my only problem with the segment. Tyson was just doing his thing which hurt the flow of Jericho's promo.

    It was an awful ending segment because of Tyson, which is a real shame because it will be the highest viewed segment in AEW history, I'd imagine.

    Struggling to get his t-shirt was the final straw really, wasn't it. Even Jericho couldn't save it.

    Still, it's Tyson and that's huge enough, I guess.

    The rest of Dynamite was good, overall.

    How's Brian Cage on the mic? I never really watched TNA, so i don't know too much about him. The guy is built like a tank though.

    That was excellent match between Cody and Jungle Boy. Jungle Boy is a very good wrestler and has a really bright future ahead of him.

    First time poster here!

    I think Dynamite is starting to get back to its best personally after a little dip shortly after going behind closed doors.

    I said after double or nothing how impressed I was with Jungle boy, and this match with Cody has done him no harm at all. Really intrigued to see how far he could potentially go.

    Also happy to see Jimmy Havoc being used more.

    That Cody/Jungle Boy match was excellent. Helped both guys get some more momentum behind their match work. Specifically Cody, who's had a bit of a dip since being the MOTN machine early on. Jungle Boy already has plenty of clout from that match with MJF. I can't wait to see more of his growth. He's showing a lot of grit and toughness, too, which helps counter-balance his boy-ish look.

    Also thought Colt had a good jaunt with Jericho. It feels like Colt is getting the chance for a potential rebirth, where he can be the funny guy that can seriously go in the ring like he was in early ROH or NWA Hollywood. I wasn't exactly asking for it, but it's been a pleasant surprise how much they're utilizing him despite being on the sidelines.

    Taz had a much better promo this week, I thought, and I think this pairing can work out. As long as Taz keeps up the intensity and keeps using it to put over Brian Cage, I can really get into this pairing. Brian Cage seeming to stick to his power moves rather than the high-flying will only help improve my experience in particular. Mox still feels right as champion whenever he grabs that mic.

    I hope Guevara being Jericho's vocalist becomes a weekly thing.

    Also echo everyone's thoughts on Cody/Jungle Boy, a great main-event. Jungle Boy will probably get a title run of some sort and maybe even MJF's ring but keep the chase and slow buikd up for now.

    Loved Schiavone turning up on the Britt vignette.

    Good show overall. Didn’t expect the main event to play out like it did, with the blood and Cody’s aggressiveness. Didn’t really fit for me. That said, very good match.

    Is it just me or does Dasha look really uncomfortable doing ring announcing?

    Dasha seems like she's trying very hard not to mess up every week. She needs to loosen up a little bit.

    She definitely seems really nervous. JR constantly kind of patronizing her -- "Great job, young lady." "There you go, Dasha!" -- from the booth is kind of off-putting, too.

    Good show overall. Didn’t expect the main event to play out like it did, with the blood and Cody’s aggressiveness. Didn’t really fit for me. That said, very good match.

    Is it just me or does Dasha look really uncomfortable doing ring announcing?
    I feel like Cody's been overdoing the blading a bit in general.

    There hasn’t been nearly enough blood in wrestling these last several years so I don’t mind

    It was only his first defense, so I thought it was a bit too soon to see blood. As long as it's not a regular occurrence I don't mind too much.

    I agree, but it's almost to the point where if Cody is having a match that isn't an exhibition, he's going to bleed, and I don't want the effect to be diminished.

    They usually bleed because of pre-existing cuts so the more the merrier...

    This seems strong. I don't think I remember you ever having such strong negative opinions about Cody. What's this based on?

    Oh just tallying up all the hypocritical shit he says and how ignorant he comes across when doing the same shit he chastises the WWE over. Talking shit about how WWE doesn't look out for the talent's health yet this fool is bleeding all over the fucking place, having chairshots to the head go unprotected every week.

    Talks shit about how people are booked yet look at him....Booked himself to win the TV title because...? Let's not forget how much shit he talked about the 24/7 title, joking about legendary Mick Foley having to be part of it....yet did he look at his TV Title, or the fact he had Iron Mike out there making an ass of himself lol.....

    They had that intro not too long ago, I'd say maybe a month ago where he's at the control center doing this voiceover and I'm like dude, you took a sledgehammer to Trips' throne without realizing you're the same guy just younger.

    No that's Cody. That's what I'm saying. Dude is everything he supposedly doesn't like. He is AEW's Triple H.

    I'll believe Cody is HHH when he gives the crossroads to Pineapple Pete at Double or Nothing, lays on the mat for an hour, then covers Pete and wins.

    I'll give Cody props for at least trying to make his matches seem realistic.

    I mean, yeah, in a face vs. face match against an underneath guy, Cody never "needed" to bleed, but think about it; Wouldn't it have looked kind of ridiculous for Cody to full-force headbutt a wall and not come back bleeding? Its unnecessary, but the reasoning is still sound.

    Cash Wheeler never should’ve shaved his facial hair. Now he looks like an older, slightly chubbier Kazarian.

    I want Jake Hager to tie that little cunt waffle Orange Cassidy into so many knots, an entire Boy Scout troop couldn’t unite him.

    Joey Janela and Sonny Kiss are a modern day Thelma and Louise.

    Except they don’t rob banks.

    But I still want to see them drive off a cliff together.

    Do records not matter when it comes to challenging for TNT championship?

    I think I remember hearing something from either AEW's Twitter or Cody's that, for the TNT Title, they were going to ignore the ranking system in favor of lining up a series of weekly challengers that the "matchmaker" -- who I think is meant to be Tony Khan, approves of.

    Which is why Mark Quen - A tag-team guy whose team disappeared for like two months during the Coronavirus and who isn't anywhere near a regular singles guy, got a shot.

    -

    What's more galling to me is that, because ... err... because! Dustin and QT Marshal are getting a tag-team title shot completely at random, despite limited success as any sort of a team.

    That's the weird one. If you're going to use rankings, at least do something to explain it.
