    I've got a Cody Rhodes doll from his "Cody Rhodes, but with a mustache" gimmick.

    Also have a Dean Ambrose, that the doll makers decided to make way, way too short for some reason.

    Looking forward to checking out those AEW toys.

    They look fantastic. At least as good as anything they put out for WWE.

    I wish I still had my 3.5 inch GI Joes from my youth. I had a post movie Cobra Commander, Lifelline (his had got chopped off for be a pacifist), a Cobra-La soldier that I melted his had to straighten out to do karate chops. And then some knock offs called "The Corp". Toxic Waster, Night Laser Trooper, The Gasman, Arctic Alpine Rescue, Cy-borg, and Chopper. Good times...

    This entrance makes it look like they're running through fire. This is great spectacle!

    Having the cheerleaders making noise is genius. I never would have thought of utilizing them in that way.
    The action's been non-stop. No standing around for seemingly 3 minutes at a time in between setups. And hell, if they just had Sammy being chased around by Page on a horse the entire time, I wouldn't mind that either.

    If AEW doesn't do something like this every year for the Super Bowl Halftime Show, they're fucking crazy.

    This is just 10 dudes having a wild ass fight.

    An obvious crash pad, but that height made it look incredible. What a fun and inventive spectacle. JR is right.

    That stadium match was hilarious lmao. I absolutely loved every minute of it!

    That was a solid show in my opinion, a lot of great matches throughout the night. Would have been even better with the crowd atmosphere, but with the little they had, they did well.

    AEW pre produced > WWE pre produced.

    Main event was fun, WWE's MITB was sloppy and cringe.

    It felt like a majority of the ladder match was kind of just there other than spot here and there. The camera work just seemed hit or miss over the duration of the match, too. Probably not enough spots for the amount of time and competitors. Cage being the surprise made sense, and it was a good culmination of time between Taz and Allin for Taz to bring Cage out. Good showing for him and a fresh challenger that's going to be easier to build for Moxley.

    Like the first go round for Guevara and Allin, MJF and Jungle Boy gave the vibe that they're a pairing that are going to cross paths at various positions of the card over several years. That's very promising for AEW's development. I find it annoying when JR seems to go into try-hard mode to make "Jungle Boy Jack Perry" a thing. I liked the overall flow of the match and it did both guys favors that they were out in the deep waters of this type of match and both held up well. I could have seen an argument for Jungle Boy to win because MJF can work the loss and blemish to his record as good heat, but I like the fact he's still being kept as a big deal as an upstart.

    The TNT title was...okay, I guess. I get that it's not finish but what we saw to this point didn't seem that promising. The match was interesting, based on the fact they recalled the history. Roberts initially called out Cody, said he had a client, and that Cody was going to fall. Archer was looking imposing all the way until the title match and ultimately fell short. Tyson had a lot of great memes out of his reactions lol. The stuff that led to the ejection of the seconds didn't do anything but make Roberts and Archer look stupid as hell. Kind of surprised they avoided the idea of Tyson knocking someone out.

    Sounds like they dodged a bullet in terms of Britt as she may be out just around two months. Penelope and Kris was good enough as a makeshift match. Penelope seems to be the one who has more momentum but I get as the replacement, it probably didn't make sense to have her go over. Hikaru getting the title win was something I thought was possible but I didn't anticipate actually happening. Maybe Nyla was just around to get through the PPV and back out of the mix after this? The fact Nyla won the title basically before this pandemic and was gone for most it pretty much made her reign meaningless.

    They went the right route with the overall tone of Moxley/Lee. I think it would have died a slow death if they went with a traditional or semi-technical match but they played to the strength of both with a brawl, physically-centered match. That was a good build to the finish. I thought it did well to show that Moxley was willing to go the the end to secure his championship, and Lee went as far as he could and ultimately couldn't be stopped. He couldn't be pinned, and he didn't submit. I figured they'd find a good way to keep Lee strong in defeat but now it's all going to come down to what they do with him afterwards in order to keep The Dark Order as a factor.

    All things considered, it was smart of them to tape the Stampede Match the night before. Can't leave anything to chance when you have the opportunity to tape it prior when you have this many moving parts within a match. Having the drum and dance team for the Jaguars was a good way to add some sound in the stadium. I'm glad they did the horse bit with Hangman for his entrance. I thought that would have been awesome on Wednesday for his return so I'm glad they used it here. Gnarly splitting the uprights moonsault by Matt Jackson. I imagine that could have felt good with his ribs. The pool was full of water from the Lake of Reincarnation. Funny stuff. Hager looked like a damn monster in the bar with Page and Omega. That was cool to see. Heck of a spot with the tremendous One-Winged Angel on Guevara. Fun match.

    Ladder match and TNT title match were underwhelming to me. AEW title and Stadium Stampede matches delivered.

    sorry to spoil your dreams, all you utter WWE marks asking for Barry Horowitz and SD Jones et all to debut in AEW, but they sure seem smart enough to not take Vince's garbage to the dump for him.

    They seem to have learned from having one perfect ten Shawn Spears on the roster...

    case and point, I didn't even spell 'Gulak' correctly and didn't know I was wrong until I saw how BG spelled it

    I bought and enjoyed a good chunk of this PPV. They just need to stop having twenty minute matches when ten could do. The book ending of the ladder match and the Stadium Stampede main event was nice. Not sure who Brian Cage and hopefully a blip in Moxley's reign. Matter Facts was just absolutely fantastic.

    I agree with you. I felt like that's been AEW's problem since they started. Some matches go way too long and drag. Personally, if PPV's went 3 hours instead of 4, it would be much better.

    Ha, that would have garnered the biggest groan at a surprise entrant since Savio Vega back at No Way Out of Texas in 1998. Pineapple Pete would have been a better option.

    Massive issues trying to watch on the PS4 this morning. Then I read that it’s not supported on the PS4.

    So I hope to get a refund there, as I had to order it a second time.

    Overall, good show, but main event was stunning. Funniest thing I’ve ever seen in wrestling was Sammy running from Page on the horse.

    First time I have watched AEW since its first PPV and I have to say I really enjoyed the show and needed it as I have been very down on WWE lately.

    I like how AEW can flip between serious and ridiculous pretty quickly.

    The small crowd makes a MASSIVE difference to the lockdown shows. Ok it sounds like a crowd from the PS1 WWF Warzone game but it still makes a huge difference.

    I just wish they had better theme songs, thats one thing most companies suffer with compared to WWE. Always sounds really generic.

    Anyway I may keep watching for a bit now.

    If AEW took some of the billionaire's money and used it to get all of their big stars real, licensed music, that would put them over the top of WWE in terms of presentation.

    I could totally see Jon Moxley coming out to Rage Against The Machine or something.

    I was watching the next morning. I started the show and it ran ok for about 60 seconds, then it cut to Cody holding the title. Tried again and the same. Not only annoyed by having the match spoiled, but there was no way of watching the first hour of the show. And I knew the first match was the ladder match and didn’t want that spoiled as well by watching from the end of the TNT Title match. Also, no gurantee that would have run smoothly either.

    Ended up using the FITE app on my phone, to the TV.

    Torn on the amount of old school vets paired up with talent in AEW. I dig it because I like the veterans being used but I'm questioning how far they've thought any of this out and will they actually use the pairings properly. Shawn Spears and Tully Blanchard just felt forced from the jump, no history, and I don't know if I like it because we don't see them on Dynamite but maybe once a month if that. Doing stupid shit.

    But then you have Arn in the role as "coach" for Cody or Jake the Snake in his role with Lance Archer. If Taz pairing up with Brian Cage is better than Taz being paired up with Samoa Joe then there's at least a positive there lol. Taz is not someone I ever looked at going "I could see him being a manager" Yes he is a good color commentator but that's not the same thing. Lord Alfred Hayes isn't someone I was dying to see manage Hercules.
