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.

Given his two mates no longer work for wwe and likely helped him and the other Create a Pro school talent get work in the north east wwe events, he’s probably picked the right option for the next while at least 

Pat Buck, who runs the school with Myers is an agent for Raw and attack victim of Nia Jax to boot. But if this gets him a regular gig with AEW and MJF, i'd jump too

The same goes for my other half actually. Since lockdown started she's started watching Dynamite with me and generally enjoys it. She's a big fan of Santana & Ortiz, Britt Baker (despite having never seen her wrestle) and, like your friend, Orange Cassidy. 

I've no idea whether or not she'll keep watching once things become more normal, but at the very least she's a short-term convert. 

I know round my way a certain Mr Page has put a lot of female eyes on their product.

It's definitely a smart thing to do, especially with producers of all sorts of media offerings recognising that there might be a bigger market out there than previously acknowledged. @Chris B has mentioned this before, but wrestling has missed out from going all-out to aim for the Pink Pound - with the advent of a few gay characters recently, it shows things are changing, but it's still slow and grudging. DragonGate led the way back in 2005 - they aimed their product at young women by focusing on the pretty boys like BxB Hulk, Milano Collection AT, YOSSINO, et al, and giving it a Japanese pop culture theme with elaborate EDM and dance-based entrances. This approach has led to them carving out their own niche, and not just surviving as an indy holding their own against the might of NJPW, but actually thriving as a legit No.2 in the country, long after NOAH and AJPW lost out by trying to compete.

EDIT: Actually, looking at it a little more closely, it seems to me that AEW have a singular opportunity right now. As long as WWE is still run in accordance with Vince McMahon's view of things, a nearly-80 year-old man who still sees gays and women a certain way, Khan and co. have a chance to make AEW the "modern" wrestling company. They've already shown they can do this, with their progressive approach to non-neurotypical people with the sensory booths, making Nyla Rose their women's champion, and so on. But the window of opportunity is closing - WWE have shown that they're gradually evolving with the times, as has been seen with women main-eventing WM and the women's Rumble. Vince won't be around forever, so AEW need to get stepping into that space before WWE do it with their bigger budgets and reach.

Everyone around Vince seems to be a mentalist with the same views and attitude as him. I genuinely don't think WWE will be much different without him.

Isn't it an open secret that Omega and Ibushi are a couple? Not that Kenny should have to disclose his sexuality if he doesn't want to but if he is due a run with the big belt there could be a huge chance for AEW to show their diversity by having an openly gay heavyweight champion.

Again I just want to stress that just because they can doesn't mean Kenny should nor should any person ever feel pressured into revealing their sexuality/gender etc just to help a company show their diversity.

I heard the latest was Kenny had a girlfriend. Just hearsay though. 

I think Ibushi/Omega have had a relationship, or perhaps as close to it as you can get in a close friendship. Ibushi is quite open about being bisexual, no? Kenny, I believe, is less bothered by labels and just wants to be happy? I remember reading an article to that effect.

Kenny's openly bisexual (has liked and responded to tweets about him being LGBTQ and has referenced it in BTE a few times in both a jokey and non-jokey way). While he and Ibushi haven't openly said they're an active couple, they've clearly set up their story as a long-term love story.

Going off the last twelve to eighteen months of NXT, I honestly think the main difference would be longer matches and more shitty melodrama.

As handsome as he was in the 90's I didn't realise DDP was still such a draw for the ladies. Must be all the stretching he does and those pearly whites.

I haven't really been that impressed with what I've seen of Moxley in AEW but fair enough for this.

Is this still something people care about? All I know is I used to have to walk an hour and a half round trip to buy one of these bad boys for £8.

The timing and production this week was all over the fucking place. Worst it's ever been.

Ok show. Matches were meh but all the promos and angles worked really well. Main event looked like it was really good except they ran a picture in picture ad break throughout pretty much the whole thing for some unknown insane reason.

Whilst I agree it wasn’t a particularly strong episode, I thought the contract signing was on of the best I’ve seen in years, and Moxley came across so brilliantly compared to his WWE run
