    I get that. But given what I saw over a traditional ppv-like program and a one-week build, I would have rather seen what Mox/Allin could've done with the time that was given to Mox/Cage for this go round.

    It's also primed to be big, if they opt to have MJF actually be the one to dethrone Moxley, for these budding stars to keep getting their moment in the spotlight with big matches only to fall short nine times out of 10. All of that, just to see MJF (of all people) be the one to actually break through the glass ceiling. There's so many ways it could be impactful, especially if he wins through nefarious means, but it's certainly a story that's being told that these guys get these make or break moments and have moments of just being on the cusp but not being able to close it out. To see that actually happen but have a heel do it and it be him (again).

    Excellent show this week loved it.

    Debate was good, OC to hopefully win the rematch.

    Loving the Sammy/Hardy stuff. Should be a very good feud, they are perfect for each other.

    Big annoyed Ortiz & Santana lost again but understand since then they smashed the car. They need to win the rematch though.

    MJF stuff is good.

    Matt Cardona looked good.

    Moxley/Allin match was very good. Good little build up. Allin & Cage for the FTW next please.

    Wow, i didn't expect the ratings to spike that much. I assume viewers tuned to see Matt Cardona? It was an excellent episode last night though. AEW has been on quite the roll as of late.

    I imagine it was the three things heavily promoted: 12-man tag, Jericho/Cassidy with a surprise, and Moxley/Allin in a title match.

    If they were there for Cardona:
    A) I'd be concerned.
    2) They were probably disappointed in a relative sense.
    III) Why?

    Let's be honest. We all know the reason for the bump this week for AEW Nitro.





    It's that simple. I'm not even being funny. We all know the crowd that watches AEW, it's the same crowd that watches every other show out there no matter how hard they pretend they don't. I promise you the idea of "What will Bischoff do on Nitro?" was at the top of everyone's list. The people that love Bischoff, and the people who pretend to hate him, they tuned in and that's why we saw a nice little bump.

    But again, it's a pretty bad number. If the TNA thread was still active we could back 10 years to "OMG TNA got a 1.9 they're fucking dead!" 10 years later....So the upside is that if Nitro still can maintain at least a million viewers, they should be ok. A million on a cable tv in 2020 is like 10 million in 1999.

    I don’t watch ROH, or Impact and I didn’t watch WCW during the ratings war.

    Pretty sure most people watching didn't know Bischoff would even be on the show

    Also, this week's Dynamite apparently beat Raw in the 18-34 demographic. That's pretty big.

    Jericho should absolutely be the person that comes out first when there’s a full crowd again. He’ll get the best pop and everyone can sing along to his song.

    Damn awesome episode of Dynamite this week. Opening tag was compelling and felt meaningful while blending a couple different angles together. Even if Sammy has heat for the chair spot, I think the extreme color helped make the feud with Hardy seem more serious, and that has a lot of potential to become a deep blood feud.

    Best Friends/Santana & Ortiz is a solid undercard feud that takes advantage of recent character points, is a good transition for Best Friends out of the #2 spots, and ideally, a place for Santana & Ortiz to build their winning ways back up and climb the ranks.

    The debate was excellent. Jericho being his petulant self, trying to embarrass Cassidy when he's ultimately just embarrassing himself, and Cassidy getting poignant and serious. I think this has been built to the point where Cassidy more than deserves the win, and Jericho can easily rebound off his star power alone, let alone the fact that it can be blamed on underestimating Orange Cassidy.

    Mox/Allin was a great main event, and I felt there was a lot of entrenched story coming out with it. Took a lot of AEW history and the personal journeys of both men and continues to plant seeds for potential future developments. Mox's pre-match promo was gripping, and felt very different from what we normally get. Overall, Moxley came out looking like a champion in a big way on this show. Allin just looked incredible as the scrappy underdog as usual.

    Not everything in-between was groundbreaking, but all the big moments were executed perfectly, and it was an exciting package of wrestling. A lot to look forward to next week, also.

    I didn't know this was a thing until I saw it pop up today: Jericho apparently had Fozzy concerts this past week. They were either outdoor shows or indoor ones with 35-50% capacity. He said they "hand out masks at the door, do temperature checks, all that sort of stuff." Apparently the shows were in North and South Dakota, and Iowa. This really doesn't seem smart, especially from an optics perspective.

    Never thought I'd be into AEW but the shows have been consistently solid. Really grateful to not feel like I'm a child when watching this show either.

    NXT'S had some great moments over the the year and in my opinion better matches, but these weekly episodes have been far more refreshing and engaging....

    Is Fozzy on tour or were these just random concerts? This seems ill advised to say the least.

    These are dates that were part of their rescheduled tour, I believe.

    Well, here's part two. I skipped through the first match. The second one is watchable. It's funny how they said Ivelisse and Diamante have never teamed together, but the matching hats and bandanas they've worn to the ring already made them look like a tag team, lol.

    It would be amazing if Scorpio Sky won the TNT title, but i can't see that happening for free

    I've said it multiple times but the point still remains unchanged: Uno and Grayson are a really great team with a weird gimmick.

    I audibly laughed when Khan decided just to look into the camera when Moxley was by their version of gorilla and they just slowly panned away to get him off screen.

    The next shot across the bow of the Wednesday Night Wars came in the form of ... Mike Chioda. Good for him, for real. No real obvious reason why such a tenured guy like him got canned so I'm glad he landed on his feet. I do think they're slowly continuing to plant the seeds for a turn with Cody. That feels like a long play that's going to be impactful. He was noble initially with the open challenges, started getting careless, now adding taunting, monikers, and entourages. Good match between the two of them. Good promo by Lee after the fact. Also, looks like they finally finished the TNT title, and it looks nice.

    Blanchard was great with his promo. It was a nice juxtaposition to everyone marking out for each other prior to that. Good execution of FTR taking out Rock 'n' Roll. They seem to be good for a nostalgic team to take a beating lol.

    Another light night for AEW and the women. Sheesh. You'd think they'd hear criticism about that and do something to correct that. At least they showed stuff about their tournament.

    Jericho/Cassidy? Ooof. That was certainly a sloppy finish and Jericho just didn't look all that great. I'm glad they followed through with an up-and-comer getting a big win but it didn't off all that great.

    Their timing seemed quite a bit off, as a whole.

    That was one of the more enjoyable weeks from beginning to end.
    the matches were engaging and with a point as opposed to endless Spotfests without reason.
    Loved FTR taking out Ricky Morton. Maybe they can explain why?
    ...or Tully can continue the Shawn Spears angle on Cody?
    these people in their 'creative' (Khan, the 'evp's lol) need to stay on course when introducing incidents and angles and then not following through on them.

    Seems like I can attribute my last point in my previous point to the fact it was done live. The consensus seems to be they haven't gotten their sea legs under them yet in terms of pacing/timing with live shows.

    I think every time Rock and Roll Express show up, they get destroyed. That's kind of become their gimmick, lol. I was sure Shawn Spears was going to finally introduce his partner during the tag team brawl, but nada.

    Jericho/Cassidy definitely didn't replicate the magic from their previous match. It looked like Jericho went down too soon when Cassidy was setting up the pin for the finish, but they had to go with it. It's a shame it turned out that way, but still a big win for OC.

    I'm happy Mike Chioda is back on television. It sucked when WWE canned him back in April during those roster cuts.

    Not sure if it's just me, but i'm getting sick of Cody being the champ. I think a heel turn would benefit him seeing as he comes across as a fake good guy... in my eyes anyway.

    You know I skim all wrestling shows more or less now, I wasn't sure if Cody was meant to be a good guy or a bad guy...? Is it not just me? He come's across like a prick, his wife is incredibly unlikable... I thought maybe that was his gimmick / the point of it.

    As soon as I saw Mike Chioda I thought "Please don't make a big deal of it" .. but they did.. twice..

    Oh well.
