  1. Fuck that, you shouldn't have to read any media or have anything explained to you before seeing any movie. The movie should speak for itself. If you need to do pre-reading to manage expectations then the movie has already failed.
  2. Based on various comments over the years I think he's always seen tag teams as a waste of money. "Why pay two people for one act" seems to be his mindset.
  3. Wardlow with some top notch heeling this week on Elevation when he teases a second powerbomb for the rabid crowd but then denies them. What a man. I love Santana and Ortiz as characters but I wish they'd ditch all the convoluted double team spots and just be straight nasty brawlers. They'd be much better if they did that. Also their finish is shite. The womens trios tag was really good. Red Velvet nearly fucking kills herself again though.
  4. The absolute best reaction to all this:
  5. What digs did he make? I didn't pick up on any. The only bad backstage stuff this week was the two womens segments. I think AEWs backstage stuff is usually fine and rarely last longer than 90 seconds even if it's shite.
  6. They are not trustworthy companies and no one should believe anything they say.
  7. Hangman vs Omega alone means I'm definitely buying this but if they've also got Mox vs Danielson it's already a guaranteed classic card.
  8. WWE have now added Roman Reigns to the show and slashed all ticket prices to be cheaper than AEW tickets.
  9. It's weird but also most the stories he's been in don't actually require him to wrestle that often so I'm torn on it. It definitely makes it so that when he does wrestle it feels like a bigger deal than most regular matches.
  10. God bless that handsome cowboy. A wonderful character that perfectly balances being wholesome and flawed with tough white meat babyface fire. I love him. Miro vs God - book it Tony! God doesn't stand a chance. A damn good show this week. Lots going on and most of it fun.
  11. I loved Punk vs Sydal. Punk wrestles very different to everyone else right now and I love it. He's not doing anything really unique or flashy, he's just doing the basics but extremely well which in this day and age is very rare and stands out. Strong Bret Hart vibes. I don't like Ruby Soho but I've never really liked anyone with the punk rocker gimmick because 99% of punk rockers come across as phony. Ruby is no different and she's nothing particularly special in the ring. The 6 man was an absolute blast and the molten crowd really added so much to it. Just non stop fun.
  12. Mark Henry leads on the community outreach stuff. Seems to involve stuff like bringing groups of underprivileged kids to AEW shows and wrestlers visiting schools in deprived areas and all that good stuff.
  13. "If you're watching TV and not watching this on YouTube you are a dumbass." I absolutely bloody love Taz so much. I was massively unimpressed and underwhelmed by Suzuki in his first 2 AEW matches but absolutely loved his match with Danielson. If this is what he's usually like then I can see the appeal now. Wouldn't want to see a match like this too often but really enjoyed it here.
  14. Why? Video games are huge business and a good game will bring a ton of new fans in. How many of us started watching after playing No Mercy or Smackdown: Just Bring It? At one point it felt like the games and the TV/PPVs were very closely linked.
  15. Hey even if you didn't enjoy it anyone who doesn't recognize that it's probably got the best imagery of any Star Wars film except the first 2 is just plain wrong. It's an absolutely beautiful film to look at. Jurassic Park: The Lost World is no where near as good as the first one obviously but it's a very fun theme park ride-type of a movie. Some great sequences, effects, music and Pete Postelwaithe is fantastic in it chewing all the scenery.
  16. Personally I'm loving Tony Khan throwing shade left, right and centre.
  17. He's absolutely fucking great. Hoping AEW pick him up once his ROH contract ends. Just a brilliant, hilarious and truly unique character with absolutely huge potential.
  18. Season 1 is kind of fun but a bit shit, season 2 is no fun and completely shit.
  19. I doubt it. WWE's attendance was dropping pretty steadily before the pandemic and they've had a fair few high drawing shows since. I really just think people are stopping going to Raw because it's shite. Smackdown still draws well.
  20. Aren't venues in the US already running full capacity crowds? This seems more like low attendance because no one wanted to attend.
  21. Naked Gun 2 and 3 are just as good as the first one for sure. 3 is almost better except the Oscars bit isn't as funny as the baseball game in the 1st one. But few things are, to be fair.
  22. Obviously yes, but this is barely even traditional deathmatch wrestling at this point. It's just crackhead mentals cutting eachother up in public. I don't think it's comparable to the deathmatch stuff GCW, CZW, BJPW does.
  23. Rampage is on at 10pm on a Friday, I'm fucking amazed anyone is watching it live. Brian Cage can be fun, but he's not very good really. He always has a short shelf life wherever he goes. He's done some decent stuff in AEW but outside of feeding him to Lance Archer or Miro I don't really see much use for him.
