The AEW Wednesday Night Dynamite Thread

Recommended Posts

I thought this was a really entertaining and enjoyable show all over really.

I think having the members of the roster who aren't involved in matches out shouting, reacting and interacting makes a huge difference because it's so much better than just deathly silence.

I felt the ladder match was a bit all over the place and I'm not a fan of Cage but Cody/Archer, Shida/Rose, Moxley/Lee and Stadium Stampede were all very enjoyable with the main being the show stealer. 

Jericho is just sensational, he constantly seems to evolve into continuously entertaining new versions of himself and it really is a joy to watch.

As mentioned previously Guevarra loses every week yet only ever somes across better and better.

Adam Page looked a million dollars once again.

Mark me down for an entry into wrestlings unpopular opinions but I actually think MJF is utter shite. He looks as threatening as a damp sponge and I don't think his gimmick suits or fits someone who wins so often. I feel he should be a snivelling little coward of a spoiled rich kid who cheats his way to every single victory he gains and any time he faces a real challenge he gets battered. For me he has nothing other than X Pac heat and I am baffled as to why people rate him so highly.

On a side note Jimmy Havoc really is terrible as is Joey Janela. Janela looks like utter shit. He's tolerable if only ever used as a jobber but anything more and he's well out of place.

Havoc's partnership with Sabian confuses me so much. Who looked at a handsome cocky arrogant heel with an attractive girlfriend and thought that pairing him with a middle aged goth was any sense at all?

I can only assume there was a "hey you're both english!" element to it.

Just got through the show now. I want to watch the main event again immediately but I also don't want to go back and start nit-picking. It was amazing! There were so many funny and surprising parts that if you wait a while before re-watching, some of it will surprise all over again. I honestly think it has zoomed straight into my top 5 favourite matches of all time. That they managed it even though I don't give a shit about many of the participants was even more impressive. Standing ovation for all those who worked to put this thing together. 😀

Just finished the main event and although there were parts of the Hardy in the pool spot that was abit Ill thought out (JR saying ‘they’re drowning him’ and Ortiz shouting ‘he’s dead’), I thought the segment was actually really well done. Ortiz saying he can’t swim and slowly climbing the ladder to three foot of water was brilliant.

The laugh of the match for me came from Hangman just casually walking over Jericho with the line marker and walking off out of shot. Brilliant.

Penelope Ford is gorgeous, however did that smelly looking oddball, Janela pull her?

Enjoyed Orange Cassidy again in the opener, however I fear they may overdo it on his exposure. He’s hilarious at the moment and his asking the commentators the rules was great.

Ive come to the conclusion that covid aside I would attend a aew uk event, probably pay for decent seats to. 
 

Didn’t think I’d ever say I’d do that for a wrestling event again out side wwe running a maina or rumble.

Post event scrum was interesting with Cody saying the VP's all have different visions about wrestling (Deadpool, DDT and Crockett).

Historically this has never been a good thing (too many cooks and all that) but they seem to be making it work for now.

They are housemates and it naturally evolved into them as a pairing on screen.

I hope MJF takes his obvious territory era heel fantasy to its logical conclusion of giving himself a disgusting forehead, he's just half arsing it otherwise.

Speaking of gross old school body parts; Brian Cage's spotty 'roid back, fucking hell, I wonder what picture you'd see if you joined the dots.

After seeing Adam Page riding in on a horse I was going to nominate him for the "wrestlers you'd turn for" thread but Rick got there in the very first post. I think AEW had only been around a couple of weeks, fair play rick, you can have the first crack at him.

That Adam Page dude off AEW is one handsome motherfucker.

They've announced an Inner Circle "Pep Rally" for Wednesday. Which hopefully means a still-white-painted Jericho trying to cheer up a wheelchair bound Ortiz, still-freezing-somehow Santana, full-body-cast Sammy and bit-more-grumpy Hager. That's going to be gold.

I realise Janela gets a lot of hate on here but I just can't help but laugh at Cage crushing him and as the camera cuts away from him still hearing him in pain shouting "fucking motherfucker".

I popped hard for Jaxson de Ville's crotch pump. That or the first cut to Tyson watching ringside letting out a massive yawn are shoe in's for Funniest Moment of the Year runner up (behind "everything Sammy G was involved in").

Speaking of dodgy camera work, was I imagining it or did they accidentally zoom in on the blade being passed to the ref during the title match? 

Great show, main event is getting rewatched about 50 times before Dynamite this week. Can't believe we're missing out on London Fyter Fest, would have honestly paid for first row seats for that!

Post says that he might read some of the comments out on this post. I really would like that so I left a comment on it

All the talk of them potentially making Stadium Stampede an annual event got me thinking. Supposing fans are back by this time next year, would this style of match really work in the post-Covid world? Could you do it with fans, or it would it have to exist as a pre-tape on an otherwise normal PPV? Could they build Dark Order up enough for them to be one of the teams? And are there really more fun ideas you could do in that setting, or have they exhausted them all?

For the record though, yes. Hangman Adam Page is a very handsome man. I absolutely would. It’s one of the many reasons why he feels like a sure-fire breakthrough star in the making.

I'm not sure I want it as an annual thing. How could they ever top that one?
