The AEW Wednesday Night Dynamite Thread


Recommended Posts

I was probably half asleep and thought Shida vs. Thunder Rosa was a Dynamite match. Is it booked for their next PPV? Though I haven't seen the NWA product recently, NJPW had something of a relationship with the them, around 2014. Whilst there wasn't anything outstanding, seeing new or re-branded older talent, defending or fighting for Championships with some history behind them, was perfectly OK to watch. Some inter-promotional stuff could benefit both companies (AEW & NWA).

I can't remeber the fella's name, but the Promoter who accompanied the NWA talent to Japan was excellent. Straight outta the 80's. Anyone remember his name, or if he's still involved, since Corgan took over?

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.

Fair points @Chris B and @LaGoosh. I think perhaps from my perspective I haven't found myself that invested in the story without those extra trappings that come via BTE. I appreciate it's an opportunity to an add an extra layer, but I still feel those extra depths of story should be presented in the main format rather than the web show. Why not have the commentary team add extra layers?

It's probably a question of personal preference in fairness, and I'm sure there are those who prefer the way AEW currently present their stories. 

I somewhat agree. But if you watch a bunch of those BTE segments, they're not TV-level at all. They're sometimes rambly, silly, etc. So far, they haven't done much in the way of backstage skits/scenes, and some people slated the Bucks/Hangman segment this week. I'd like them to add it, but not if it's low-rent. I want them to figure out how to optimise it for TV.

It was dreadful. Terrible ham acting. I'd long-since decided I had zero interest in BTE, as far back as it goes. Never been a fan of the Bucks, though they have been involved in 2 of the best tag matches I've seen in recent years. The idea that they've re-defined anything other than spotty bullshit, doesn't wash with me & never has. I don't particularly care about Cody & despite the amount of praise as he gets on here, Paige doesn't come across a star. In fact when he worked briefly on New Japan shows, he was just some bloke from ROH. Cowboy gimmicks aren't over with me, nor is alcohol in that sense. Hardly paints him as being a top professional, but then again Americans seem to be impressed by beer, even piss-weak beer.

Incidentally, with apologies if this has already been covered, but Cornette & his sidekick mentioned that someone was making it difficult for Kenny to even enter Japan. November 2019 being the last occasion, I believe. The vibe was that NJPW are really pissed at him. Was there some sort of 'no compete' clause when he left? To be honest, I assumed they'd parted on decent terms, NJPW having made a bollocks of some of their previous contracts. Anyhow, the upshot seems to be that there aren't and won't be any plans for AEW & NJPW to interact. I'm a little surprised, more than particularly bothered.

Nothing concrete but I remember something about Kenny getting pulled up over some tax related stuff.

Wouldn't shock if New Japan tried to fuck with him. Probably someone here who knows more than me but I'm sure New Japan management are known for holding grudges and occasionally being petty, it's wrestling after all.

Don't think I've ever heard of New Japan having no complete clauses.

Fair enough. I think he was returning to work or be present for a DDT show. Could be tax issues, or as you say NJPW/Bushiroad trying to fuck with him. To be fair, they probably got the absolute best out of him, possibly at the optimum point of of his career and he had effectively been a native, having spent so much time there in the previous decade+. If anyone's aware of how and why it actually played-out, it'd be interesting to know.

I don’t think Japan allows/recognised Dual Citizenships
