The AEW Wednesday Night Dynamite Thread

Jericho has limited time left in the ring and is clearly motivated as fuck. Mox is the same but with more years left in the ring. They are the two biggest stars and Omega has spent years battering himself in Japan. Not hard to understand why they’d let Omega take it easy for a while before having him go back to the top of the card. Nakamura had done the same, but without actually going back up the card.

Taking it easy? He’s worked body-destroying matches with Moxley and Joey Janela, to name two examples from the top of my head.

I’ve not seen the guy’s Japanese matches, but he doesn’t strike me as someone who is playing it safe in ring in AEW.

I just was assumed he wasn’t landing on his head loads, which is a different type of risk than the lights out matches had.

Jericho bloody baffles me. So much so that I cannot write down what I think of him as I am still trying to work it all out. 

In short he is either the greatest mind in the business or a complete loon. Honestly I just don't know.

Jerichos been giving himself nicknames for years 

I know, my post was a bad attempt at a joke regarding all the ridiculous “I don’t know who this character is or why they call themselves this” comments.

It’s wrestling, it really doesn’t need that much thought.

He’s a disgrace of a man who doesn’t mind having a laugh at himself and is smart enough to turn negatives into positives.

I think that's the most important thing about Jericho over the years. Granted he clearly believes his own hype on some level, but he also knows how to convince others enough to be able to constantly reinvent himself successfully. He has a fantastic brain for the business and is one of those people that can adapt on the fly and really understand what works. Never to a level of Austin or Rock etc, but that doesn't matter. No one looks at him and thinks he's second rate. They just enjoy him for what he is - and that's where many others fail.

In terms of "taking it easy", Omega worked one match apiece in May, June and July last year, two in August and September. Since Dynamite started, he's been working roughly once a week, with the rare exception of when he has a non-AEW booking. So still no more than 4 or 5 matches per month.

Compare that to working multiple days straight on a NJPW schedule, particularly around stuff like the G1, and it probably balances out even if he is still working high impact matches. 

 

Anyway, this week's episode still isn't up on the ITV Hub. Apparently it's on some mobile versions of the app, but not the TV version.

Someone has stolen Brandi Rhodes’ passport, meaning she can’t attend the Jericho Cruise, so won’t be on this week’s show.

Not all heroes wear capes.

I Sky+ it personally, so never encountered such issues.

I don't have Sky, or any kind of terrestrial TV, only streaming services, so ITV Hub or Fite TV are my only options to watch it. Fite TV is patchy for me, so don't want to pay for it if I don't have to, plus I can't get it on the telly in my bedroom, which is where I tend to watch AEW.

I am hoping it is their dog in an act of revenge for bring him to the ring with all the pyro going off
