Right people, right time, just the wrong location.

Fucking hell who’s arsed. Let people get excited about things.

For a TV Guide photoshoot promoting a new wrestling show, this is what you want to see. Not you brothers wedding reception, like those cunts above. You're selling professional wrestling. Nothing else.

Been completely out the loop with AEW (and wrestling in general) since lock down. Been meaning for weeks to watch some. Finally got round to watching this weeks Dynamite. Great episode. The Kingston promo at the start was brilliant. Butcher/Blade vs Bucks was all kinds of fun. Got my interest back now. Dark worth watching again? 

Dark is still pretty missable to be honest. Though they do sometimes run angles and storylines on there, there is rarely anything must see.

I always skim through Dark. I wish it would go back to 45 mins tops. Last weeks had some good stuff on it though storyline wise. Starks finisher on the big black guy was particularly impressive. Tino Sabbatelli of all people turned up!

I imagine it's become more missable since Covid, so I can forgive that a bit. But it was a shame, they had a few cracking matches occasionally. 

However AEW does need a little quality control, I have seen some fucking dross on that show as well as great promise.

Good Dynamite. Kingstons promo was real. He'd be a great 3rd man for a good tag team or even reunite him with his old team in the inner circle. Great talker, can be of use in a hardcore environment too. Those plucked eyebrows though? take away some of the meanness.

Young Bucks vs Butcher/Blade falls count anywhere was loadsa fun. An enjoyable fun match, and thats all wrestling needs to be at times.

Jurassic Express and Inner circle again fun. Was surprised to see Luchasaurs take the cover, he's taken a few recently. Great to see Sammy back.

Going for some real slow story telling with Hangman & Omega along with FTR and elite. Hopefully by the time the trigger is pulled fans are in. 

Overall a great show.

Jon Moxley in slating and talking about WWE shocker. The guy seriously just needs to let it go, it's been over a year since he worked there.

But AEW’s audience eats that sort of shit up, they love to hear how much of an out of touch maniac Vince is compared to a real wrestling promoter like their boy Tony.

Its not just about letting it go, and “talking about WWE”- he was on the main roster for 7 years, plus another 2 or so in developmental, do you want him to just pretend he was happy and that everything was sunshine & rainbows for that near decade part of his life?

Shows like that thrive on people slating WWE, the whole Shoot Interview section of the industry is build on people dishing the dirt or tearing it to shreds. It’s why guys like Russo and Cornette have a new Podcast most days of the week

Yeah, audiences love to hear that shit. For me, once is enough and unless it's something super-interesting and new, I don't tend to dip into that well too often. Especially when you know most of these guys would go back. There aren't many that genuinely stay away.

But good for him. I'm glad AEW is a better fit for him and he's enjoying what he does again.

It's not like he's ranting on his Facebook or Instagram though is he, these interviewers will keep asking him the same questions about WWE because it makes good soundbites and is easy clickbait to get folk to listen to their show. How's he supposed to respond, just sit there in silence?

At least it's better than on some shoots where folk daren't slag WWE off because they don't want to lose a potential future payday. Moxley seems to genuinely not give two fucks, he's made his bed and is happy to shit in it so fair play to him.

I don't think its as bad for that nowadays though.

That was true 4 years ago, pre-AEW when Impact was on the verge of going out of business and ROH weren't really pulling up any trees either.

Thing change, heck, the WWE wouldn;t even consider hiring TNA wrestlers at one point then, low and behold, a third of their roster was once employed by Dixie Carter.

But there are so many options out there now, wrestlers can be more free to say what they like. The WWE knows this too and would be cutting off their noses to spite their face in rejecting talent who may have said something derogatory on a podcast two years earlier.

They'd still take Moxley back in a heartbeat. In the same way they took back Bruno, DiBiase, Warrior etc who spent years slagging them off.

It’s a good thing, especially during a pandemic, that the pro-wrestling industry is so healthy and vibrant that so many guys can make a living. And maybe they’ll make me look a dickhead by being huge successes, but seriously. Imagine having a roster this bloated and then still thinking you need to sign Zack Ryder and the shit one out of the Funkadactyls.

AEW Dark is going to end up being six hours long each week just to get everyone some ring time.

Best thing on the show by miles was the MJF thing, simply for the fact that it was a trigger finally being pulled. Hopefully we see more going forward.

Agreed, also does every ex WWE mid card guy have to debut in the same way? 

• fired from WWE

• Face being attacked

• New signing makes save

• New signing takes off top to show how much juice they have been on in the 90 days. 

• Either at the time of debut or the week after they cut a promo with a dig about being overlooked etc. 

I feel like I have seen it hundreds of times, but only with the mid carder's. 

Other than that another enjoyable show, I am no AEW fan boy and can see the many faults it has but it is head and shoulders above WWE in terms of being an enjoyable show to watch.

At least I was curious about what they'd do with Matt Hardy, even if I thought it wouldn't work. I couldn't care less about Ryder. He was lucky to be employed that long by WWE. They've got more than enough people on the roster to try and build up without him being there. He's not the kinda guy you want to be putting over your own talent so I'm not sure what they'll do with him.
