The AEW Wednesday Night Dynamite Thread

Recommended Posts

Granted, I havent seen every Cody promo ever but last night was the first time that ive watched him speak and genuinely seen Dusty in him. Cracking promo, made me seriously hyped for the PPV even if I dont think the actual match will be that good, it will certainly tell a good story.

Looking forward to whatever the stip is for The Elite vs Inner Circle, certainly seems like Wargames but will they be allowed to use the concept/name?

Jerichos such a prick hes fantastic.

Great go home show.

Am seeing nothing of this 'superstar' he has been lauded to be for years.

After DDT Ultimate Party I'm convinced that Japan is the only place he looks the star he's portrayed as.

Might be better off going heel for a while in AEW. Been hinting that at the very least he's possibly going to be a heel in DDT if/when he goes back.

Edit.

As for Wargames they can just call it The Match Beyond or something and considering the amount of "timed battle royals" we see I'd be surprised if WWE can claim ownership of the match type.

What a go home show. That was probably my favourite Dynamite yet. Definitely the easiest to watch in terms of the matches themselves. Not every match was going at 1000 miles per hour or felt indieriffic enough to drive me up the wall.  The closing angle was a blast. I loved the interaction between all of the characters and how it built multiple matches for the PPV. It was like some of them old WWF Attitude angles where multiple feuds all wrap up together.

Cody's promo was a bit of a classic. It absolutely crushed any babyface promo I've seen in years. It had it all, really. Cody doesn't pop off the screen much physically but his emotion comes bursting through, and Christ, that's something that's been missing. That's three promos in less than a month that have blown the fucking roof off. This, even more than the Moxley promo beforehand, completely exposes how utterly shit WWE promos have been for years and years now. I remember a few months back on here somewhere, there was a little debate on who comes across as a bigger star - Cody or Seth Rollins? Fucking hell! Imagine still thinking it's anywhere close.

Not too keen on Cody's actual announcement though. Feels like a unnecessary stip to the PPV match.

The Chris Jericho spoof package was incredible. I'm all for comedy on Dynamite if this (and Orange Cassidy!) is the standard they can deliver. This was fucking brilliant, the most genuinely funny wrestling thing I can ever remember seeing. There was so much in that video to love, so many fun and rewarding touches to it. And Jericho just gets better by the week. I think it'll be a mistake if they take the belt off of him at Full Gear. As much as I enjoy Dynamite, it really wouldn't be on the same level without Jericho in the middle of it all.

The Omega/Moxley vid was also tremendous. Watching that main event, though, I did struggle to get past Kenny Oliver's "preening, prancing and pointing". Thanks Jim!

Loving PAC's heel work so far. A proper heel. The opener was good until the goofed ending and I wouldn't mind seeing more of Trent in singles matches.

The Private Party match was nowhere near as horrific as the semi-finals match with the Lucha Bros. It was actually quite good. Subverting the hot tag trope is the kind of 'innovative' wrestling I can get behind. This is one of them things that I'm probably alone on, but I hate that they've chucked a bin bag over Evil Uno's flab bod. Maybe it's because I love Buddy Rose, Blackwell and bods from the 80's, but the way he looked really don't bother me. It helped him standout from the pack if anything. Covering him up has really diminished his aura for me. But Dark Order are a great team despite the awful, awful gimmick. They're more than fine as the undercard tag guys.

The women's match was decent this week, although they dropped a bollock by announcing Riho vs Sakura for the PPV too early. I like the look of Hayter, seems like someone that could inject the division with some personality. Her coming out as the gobby, jack jawing heel followed by her Freddie Mercury impersonating tag team partner really hurt my head. I like Emi Sakura, but Christ, this gimmick is the absolute worst, at least for a heel.

I was wondering if Tony was being sarcastic last week with his TOPE SUICIDA bit. This week his "YESSS!" was definitely taking the piss. Even Tony is sick of them.

The only thing that made me want to switch over was the Brandi Rhodes thing. The video itself is harmless daft nonsense but it's the fact that it's more Brandi that kills me. She's fantastic as a manager and one of the best talkers they have. But this ain't it. Why are they not doing anything like this for the girls that are on the PPV that desperately need some kind of hook? I hate the suffocating Stephanie McMahon shtick of turning heel or face on a dime as well. And all this is for Awesome Kong in 2019? No thanks!

On the other hand, the under-use of Tully Blanchard is criminal. Hopefully once the PPV is out of the way they will start putting more focus on the mid-card with them awesome videos and character profiles they do.

I hope not, they could get a real good slow build out of that over the next few months.

If anything you could have him help Cody get the title, sullying the win and going from there.

So what do we reckon? Is MJF turning on Saturday?

I can't see any other possible ending to be honest.

That will come once his program with MJF is over. Cody is destined to be betrayed by his friends and MJF has first dibs

Ratings incredibly close this week. 
 

AEW - 822k

NXT - 813k

 

invasion storyline obviously working well. AEW continue to lose viewers and I’m shocked how many didn’t come back from baseball last week. I wonder if they’ve left for good or they watched nxt?

The whole promotion is worth watching just for Jericho, hilarious once again but yeah, that was a very good show. Exactly the way you should build up a PPV.
