The AEW Wednesday Night Dynamite Thread

Recommended Posts

Man alive. What a closing angle. When they announced the lashes I didn’t really see the appeal. I know they’ve done it in the past but it was way before my time and it just sounded like weird torture porn.

How wrong was I though. Genuine drama. Engrossing as fuck. Cody’s the best booker in the business and he and MJF are the best babyface and heel in forever.  I cannot wait to see Cody smash that little prick at the Pay Per View. Absolutely brilliant. Better than Orton and Edge. When it’s good it’s fucking great.

Poor Yuka "Sakazowie", I'm almost sure J.R fucked up her name on purpose this time.

Don’t forget calling Scorpio Sky ‘Too Cold Scorpio’ 🤦🏿‍♂️

JR didn't even try to hide his lack of interest in that match, he was fucking dreadful. Makes we wish Vince was still screaming in his ear and humiliating him once a year.

Anyway JR's shitarsery aside, good show.

Closing angle was great, maybe a bit drawn out, but high drama sometimes needs to be eeked out a bit. 

Anyone know what Santana was referring to in his promo about how everyone knows it was the worst year of his life? (or something to that effect). I was slightly confused.

His dad (who he appeared to idolise) passed away last month or late 2019.

If its a case of possessing one skill over the other, then Cody's priorities are right. Telling a compelling story has always been more important, especially in terms of revenue, over athletic ability and the in-ring stuff. 

 

Telling a compelling story is the in-ring stuff. Cody is quite a testament to hard work - which is an odd thing to say about a second-generation wrestler who has had jobs handed to him. But he’s not gifted with loads of charisma, freaky genetics or uncanny athletic ability, so he doesn’t have those things as shortcuts. He just studies the game and works damn hard to sell his storylines and angles, and with the right dance partner, he can deliver a good payoff when match time comes.

He’s a 6/10 performer on paper, but his stuff works way better than anyone else’s on the show. Jericho is sometimes more entertaining, but that’s fat old man meta comedy stuff - closer to Broken Matt Hardy than to a mainstream wrestling headliner. Moxley is Dean Ambrose with an eyepatch rather than a gas mask. Omega’s a wasteman. All three of them are “better” than Cody, yet they’re not showing it in AEW. If the whole thing goes tits up in a year, Cody is the one who has set himself up to be worth most to WWE.

'Everyone knows' is an issue AEW has had a lot of in fairness.
Have to agree though, the closing angle was fantastic.

Hangman becoming a beer wizard and magicking up a pitcher of beer out of nowhere was hilarious. That's the first time its felt like they successfully translated the humour of BTE to the main show. The match was a lot of fun too.

Wasn't expecting to like Janela/Sabian as much as I did. Although it's weird hearing JR perv over Penelope Ford. He was not having a good week. It was odd seeing that on the same week that Taz had a notably good moment in a women's match - "These two female athletes... (pauses while he realises that sounded kind of weird)... these performers. These wrestlers." It was natural, but it was also clear that he picked himself up and corrected nicely.

The lashing segment was superb. One of the most memorable segments in wrestling for so long. The moment with Brandi was absolutely perfectly handled.

This is a particularly niche complaint I know, but am incredibly squeamish when it comes to messing with eyes to the extent that I couldn't ever consider getting contact lenses. 

I won't lie, not a fan of this eye stabbing shit at all and can't wait until this whole stupid angle is over, worked or not. Yuck!
