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.

He'd just Tombstoned himself into a concrete floor off a scaffold, cognitive abilities probably need a while to get going again

He must have had some idea how badly he was hurt before continuing on. If not then it makes it even worse that he had no idea what was happening and they still let him climb that tower

Wrestlers are nutcases. It’s practically a prerequisite. The last person who should be determining if a match goes on is a wrestler, never mind one that’s just thrown his own skull ten feet into concrete.

Howling at Tony Khan tweeting that Matt is released from hospital and is fine and then plugging the next episode of dynamite with a Hardy appearance in the same tweet. I can’t imagine Tony was this much of a cunt before the wrestling business got him.

I think the show exposed Tony Khan's lack of inexperience in the business. He needs to learn that he can't be everyone's friend and that the boss can't really be one of the boys.

He should have called for the Hardy match to be stopped and he should give JR a McMahon level bollocking for his shitty work and lack of professionalism.

Starting to see why Vince seemed to really enjoy humiliating the cranky old creep.

Enjoyable show overall but felt more like a feature length episode of Dynamite rather than it's own special event. Loved the fallout from the tag title match, especially the continuous camera shot following Kenny all the way to his car. Loved the finish to the main event as it had me legit grinning from ear to ear. Poor Shida though, she had a great match but looked like she was dying from the heat after about 5 minutes in.

Good stuff but fuck this pandemic and fuck these empty(ish) arena shows, they're really starting to take their toll.

The Sydal and especially the Hardy stuff threatened to derail the whole thing but it just about recovered. 

I hope they learn from that incident now though because it's great that they're trying to be an edgy alternative but there's no need to be as reckless as they are at times. If they keep it up somebody is definitely getting seriously injured or worse, and the amount of shit they would get for it isn't what a growing promotion wants either.

More positively, I'm stoked for Archer challenging for the title, Jericho has done a terrific job making Cassidy and the tag title and world title matches were both very good.

Did Anna Jay have a wardrobe malfunction? Maybe that was wishful thinking on my part.

Jim Ross in 2020. Fucking get rid.

Sammy G got suspended and went through awareness training for comments made a couple of years ago... Absolute minimum is JR should face the same fate.

He also made some weird comment during the women's match about taking them both out for dinner and giving them some sauce (but I may have misheard and/or misinterpreted that)

The ghostly atmosphere really hurt this show. I'd rather they didn't bring fans in at all if this is how it sounds. It seems even quieter than before. Show was also mired by several stupid, gruesome, scary spots and fuck ups that took me out of the action. All in all a fairly average to disappointing PPV with some mad memorable moments. 

Early on during Baker vs Big Swole I was wishing for the death for cinematic wrestling, but when they took it outside the office it got tremendous. HATED the needle spot but Baker carried this to a fun match, even her striking looked better than usual.

Dustin's promo was a breath of fresh air. Again, why have they been sitting on this guy? Looking forward to him vs Brodie, their interactions were good.

The battle Royal was an AEW battle royal but Archer looked as great as ever. Over the moon he's gunning for Moxley. Matt Sydel falling arse over tit was hilarious and Darby Allin's a fucking idiot.

The Matt Hardy stuff was bush league and completely unsurprising for this lot.

Thunder Rosa looks really good and I was gutted she didn't win. Don't like Shida matches at all. 

The Elite angle feels like it's fizzling out fast. Whatever they're doing with it I hope it was worth the way it's cooled The Hangman. Tag Title match was killed by lack of crowd noise but I don't think it was all that anyway. 

Orange Cassidy vs Jericho was fun for what it was. I'm glad it's over, I thought it was a bad idea as a feud. I know they can't hold back on everything forever, but I think normalising OC as a wrestler and featuring him so heavily in front of no fans has taken the shine off him tremendously. Can't wait to see where Jericho goes next.

Really liked the main even and thought it was easily the match of the night. Mox and MJF in the ring overdelivered as much as their promos underdelivered, although I find MJF is generally underrated as a worker. Finish was cool.

What's it gonna take to sack JR? . You have Tazz and Schiavone who are perfect for the job and familair faces. JR doesn't bring enough to the table. In fact he's nothing but counterproductive.

Whilst I’m happy they’re pulling the trigger on Lance Archer I’m also disappointed Eddie Kingston didn’t win the Battle Royale. I’d love to see Kingston and Mox cut promos on each other. I also thought it was telling that even with a tiny crowd that were mic’d terribly Darby Allin and Eddie Kingston were the two guys to get big reactions. Those lads are quality.

Kingston's great and yeah I'd definitely love a Mox/Kingston feud. I'd be happy if they built him up a bit first. At least Lance has been around a bit now.

It's one of the tough things about AEW - they almost have too many people that could step into that spot. Like I'm a big fan of the Lucha Bros guys as singles, so a proper Moxley feud vs a heel Penta would be my wet dream.
