The AEW Wednesday Night Dynamite Thread

Recommended Posts

People thinking Marty Scurll or Luke Harper are going to be revealed as some type of Higher Power figure behind Dark Order are probably the same people who were convinced Charlotte wasn’t going to be in the main event of Wrestlemania and that Baron Corbin wouldn’t really be facing Kurt Angle in his retirement match.

I’m worried that it’s going to be Brandi Rhodes. I’d take anyone or anything over her. Marko Stunt, a reveal that Evil Uno was talking to his reflection, Dr Britt Baker running the group out of her dental surgery - anything.

If it meant all the shitty cults joined forces and the show was no longer riddled with separate factions all looking and doing the same, I’d be happy for it to be revealed that Brandi Rhodes and The Bunny are co-Higher Powers.

That Janella segment was easily the low point of the show.

He's fine as fodder for the main guys and that's it.

However, joy of joys, that segment has prompted tremendous banter back and forth between her, Kip and Janella on Twitter with Joey saying he is the only reason she got the job with AEW and her saying he has a tiny dick and Kip making a dig about Joey still living with his Mum. Ah, kids today...

James Van den Berg would be a great addition to the Dark Order.

It was me, Pacey, it was me all along.

See, I’d thought that initially. If that happens though, there’s less chance of the dead-in-the-water Nightmare Collective disappearing quickly.

The Dark Order aren’t quite dead-in-the-water yet. They’re treading water with their hands bound, but they’ve not quite drowned. There’s a small chance the gimmick can be salvaged.

My¬†worry is that all the ‚Äėdark‚Äô factions exist simultaneously for a reason, we‚Äôll eventually see a mega-faction and that will play a big part in storylines, bogging the show down.¬†

Of course, it could be - and most likely is - down to a lack of a singular vision. 

But yeah, the fear exists...

If Brandi fucking Rhodes is the leader of the Dark Order, I'm never watching wrestling ever again.

What are the chances Janela disappears from TV for a month and the angle’s concluded on Twitter? I think there’s something in him that they’ve failed to tap into, and this stop-start stuff is doing him no favours. Maybe him and Ford can use the reality of their relationship to squeeze something juicy out of this. Good luck with Kip Sabian though. The guy is useless. The cocktail stick, the Lennon shades, the valet . . . Dress him up how you like, he’s the most vanilla bloke in wrestling history.

As for Dynamite, easily the best since Full Gear. Thank god we’re finally finding out who the Ellite are. The opening video was a fine way to bounce back for them and wash away some stink.

Hopefully they tie together all these crap fetish groups¬†and the¬†‚Äėhigher power‚Äô is¬†Chris Daniels¬†or somebody equally unimportant,¬†so this Dark Order/Nightmare¬†thing can be beaten and¬†quietly forgotten about.

There isn’t enough of singles match Cody on these shows. Him Vs Darby Allin was fantastic. Blew everything else away and is probably the best Dynamite match to date. Fat Arn isn’t quiet the winning visual that Brandi is, but hell, I LOVED the use of him for the finish. Classic, basic stuff. What’s old is new again.

Riho couldn’t drop the title soon enough. She’d be great as the scrappy underdog that gets battered about with an occasional upset victory. But as a practically unbeatable champion on a Brock Lesnar schedule? Nope. Baffling they didn’t make Shida their first  champion when she’s been there all along.

Sammy Guevara damn near stole the show this week. That face on him! What a wonderful, cocky little prick. Him and MJF as AEWs young brash heels should be awesome to see grow over the years. The two of them getting stuck in and jawing with the Jacksonville crowd was a joy to watch. 

Loved MJF and his stips. MJF beating a conflicted, humiliated Cody with the strap ten times over already sounds like wrestling segment gold. 

It feels like they still haven’t tapped into how hot Moxley could be. Jericho was hilarious and king-sized as usual, and I get what they were going for, but the ending to that segment was shit. Moxley came out as a house of fire but struggled a bit too much with Trent, and finished off with a completely limp and deflating response to Jericho. I’m looking forward to them sparking his jets this year. 

Main event was the usual Young Bucks silly bollocks. I’ve really cooled on the Lucha Bros. A shame, I really wanna like them but they’re even more annoying than the Bucks. Endless posing, random no-selling and some flat out embarrassing botches. 

Finally a bit of something about Adam Page. First time he’s came across as someone worth investing in. Enjoyed him in the booth with his drink, feeling sorry for himself. I’d love it if they had the balls to go with a full-on alcoholism story line. The Twitter response would be something to behold.

Tazz fits right in. I’d take him over Excalibur any day.

Cult of yoga bores.

Don't.  Still too painful.  Such a huge moment, so wasted.

I’ve only just noticed the massive gulp in his neck right after the mask comes off. Like he realises it’s all downhill from here.

When does this go up on the ITV hub these days?

I've given up waiting on itv now. They don't even bother on the @itvwrestling twitter account. Like they've given up themselves. It's on ITV4 Friday nights though. Possibly
