The AEW Wednesday Night Dynamite Thread

Recommended Posts

Probably more I disliked than liked on this episode.

This week is the most I’ve enjoyed Matt Hardy in AEW, he felt like he fitted in properly for the first time. The match had some very obvious wait-for-the-spot stuff but I enjoyed it.

Hikaru Shida is great. Jungle Boy was the right pick to win the Battle Royal. He and Cody should have a good’un.

What does FTR stand for? Is it like when AOP turned up on Raw and they never bothered to explain what the three letters meant? 

Zoned out of the Jimmy Havoc match completely. 

Cody’s promo was far from his best, but even if the rest of it had been the same, did he really need to throw in the “I won’t be welcome in Connecticut” line?

Add me to those who thought the closing segment was very TNA. And very 2010, as well, with Annoying Voice Vickie Guerrero, Jack Swagger (although I will say his poem was the best bit of it), and Jericho paying off an angle from ... well, from 2010 ... from Raw. Could have done without eeeeveryone piling in at the end. I know AEW are doing testing but that was a big squished crowd of people in the ring there.

FTR initially meant Fuck The Revival, was one of those Being The Elite things when I wasn't watching I guess. I'm not a fan of the name regardless of what it means now, it's not even three letters that roll off the tounge well.

I thought it was Forever The Revival, but apparently it's Fear The Revolt which is even worse. Still, shit names don't mean anything in wrestling. Walter is one of the worst names ever and it's not done him any harm.

@HarmonicGenerator I'd completely forgotten about Vickie Guerrero until your post. It took around 30 seconds for her to remind me why she had change the channel heat.

To be fair, it had been four whole days since he’d shared the ring with a WWE Hall of Famer. He was probably worried we’d forget he’s obsessed with WWE. And a line in a promo is a lot cheaper than building HHH-style sets and props, and does exactly the same job.

I've thought they were awful since they were in TNA.  The only good thing about periodically seeing them is watching them slowly visually morph into the Rock 'n' Roll Express, receding hair and boss-eyes and everything.

Don't forget that he's going to undertake an unheard of schedule by defending his title in an open challenge.......... Yep, never been done before, nope....... If it has I haven't seen it......

Jericho's an All Lives Matterererer and a coronavirus is a hoax dipshit. Why does wrestling have so many fuck heads?

I loved the Vickie/Edge era of Smackdown, they were brilliant fun together. When WWE started using her as a running fat joke she became less watchable but mainly because that was unnecessarily cruel. The fact WWE could simultaneously run an anti-bullying campaigning and do things like that is/was mind-boggling in terms of self-awareness.

But because of that initial period where she, against all odds. became the biggest heel in the company at the time I’ll always have a fondness for her. I enjoy her wee AEW cameos.

You'd be hard pressed to find anything truly unique in wrestling, so if that's what you need, you might want to find something else to watch.

Brandi Rhodes is getting a lot of heat for a now deleted Instagram post too

What was even more strange was when they kept calling her fat even after she lost weight and toned up. But it’s not like she was Viscera in the first place. Same with the Piggy James stuff. 
 

It has to be another weird Vince thing and a phobia of putting on the slightest bit of weight.

Who is she getting heat from? I don't see anything controversial in what she's saying there. In fact she's talking about an aspect of the race issue that affects her directly, in the context of the wider situation. She's not trying to make the situation about her. There's a side of social media where some people seem to take any post online as a declaration that IT IS RIGHT AND EVERYTHING ELSE IS WRONG which they then take as a personal attack. She's talking about the race issue not being cut and dried, us vs them, but more subtle and sinister. The only thing I can see causing umbrage is that last line, but that can definitely be forgiven because, in an Internet of billions, among millions of voices, it can be easy to be overwhelmed by a barrage of vitriol from only a few.

They’ve got a great mind for marketing themselves no doubt about that, but the only match of theirs I’ve liked was the match at Revolution against Omega & Hangman, which was no doubt helped by them being mates for years and probably going over it shitload of times.

I don’t like either of them, but Matt Jackson especially boils my piss. Thetes a part of me that is sure he’d have wanted to do that Northman Lights Suplex the length of the pitch in full before being outvoted, and rightfully so. And the Superkick means nothing now because of them
