I love Luchasaurus, but he's not being booked well - he's a hot tag guy who comes in with a burst of energy for all his big moves, not someone who should be expected to carry a chunk of the match or work extended sequences.

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.

Someone also needs to tell him to stop bumping. I get that they're all mates and bumping has become synonymous with "making the other guy look good", but if there's one guy who shouldn't be leaving his feet to sell kicks from cruiserweights, it's the 6'6" human T Rex.

Didn't he have a big injury or something and he had to change his style? I remember someone on here saying a while ago how amazing he once was as this gigantic flippy lucha dinosaur and then he had to change how he worked.

I think he's trying to wrestle somewhere between how a big guy is seen as being supposed to wrestle and the flippy stuff. He does look clunky at times but I can't help but like him. I'd be happy with him being the hot tag guy, big boots and all that sort of stuff, maybe the odd dive or flip but let Jungle Boy do the majority of the work and let Marko get the shit kicked out of him and bump like a madman.

I am very happy to see Miro and what the future will hold for him in his new home in AEW. If you had told me that he would debut with blond hair wearing a $650 Gucci Disney shirt I would not have believed you. What I don't like is all the former WWE guys shitting on WWE when they leave just like last night. Things happen move on take the opportunity to prove people wrong. Don't shit on the company that gave you the opportunity and name value. I know they they may have legitimate reasons but it is just in poor taste. Look at Eddie Kingston have many times has that guy been knocked down can keeps coming, To quote him "Be a mark for $ signs and not the letters".

I mentioned a little while ago that I wasn't ruling out Matt Cardona showing something that he hadn't shown before. He absolutely hasn't. He's the blandest guy on the roster, and they've got Jack Swagger.

Delighted that Miro has turned up. And if anyone has earned the right to do a promo about being mistreated, the guy that was told 'the fans don't like you, they're teasing you', after being depushed for having a too-hot wife for his weirdo boss is the guy who can do it.

If he did he clearly hasnt changed his style as he's still bumping and doing flippy stuff.

Big Sexy still busted one out vs Goldberg at Spring Stampede '99, workhorse that he was. The place exploded for it, as probably did his knee.

but also, as Meltzer pointed out recently - Luchasaurus has been wrestling for 11 years, amounted to nothing in FCW/NXT and nothing on the indies before Lucha Underground, and for that entire time he was following the stock "wrestle like a big guy" advice. He only started making waves when he started wrestling the way he does.

Luchasaurus definitely seems to have lost some of his speed and fire since returning from injury. I still love him though, because he's a ninja dinosaur and that's cool as hell. If he wrestled like a traditional big man he'd be boring as fuck. More ninja kicks, chokeslams and flips please. 

Really good show. Glad they focused so heavily on promos, angles and stories over wrestling this week. Pretty much everything worked this week and everyone's characters are just really popping off the screen. There's a lot going on and I'm really excited by everything.

Been watching Dynamite since the debut episode as it was nice to have something a bit new to watch. Generally they've got a hell of a lot more consistent on TV recently and week to week it's a pretty enjoyable show with lots of stuff happening but not in a mad Russo/ADHD way. Anyway this week.

*Jericho and MJF are both brilliant heels. I love the little interactions they occasionally have, like two high school bullies who guard their patch and act a bit pally, but slag each other off on the sly. I think it is too soon to have Wardlow do a hulk smash version of the Virgil turn on MJF but hey-ho they look like their going ahead with it. Good segment. Jericho going off to do tags is a good move for a bit and it keeps Hagar in tag matches. Sammy probably going solo, though it feels a bit like the Inner Circle is having one of them break-ups that's not a proper big angle break-up, which would be a shame. 

*Given that the spark for the tag feud was smashing up a moms minivan, I really love the PNP/Best Friends stuff. Just a nice mid card tag feud. Parking Lot fight next week should fun, also good call on having Orange Cassidy get a showcase match but keeping him as the background this week. Interesting to see what they do with him going forward.

*Not really into the Kingston gang of lads as a group. It's probably going somewhere but they look a right misfit bunch. Might be because it's two tag teams and I just find it aesthetically jarring. They're positioning Kingston to be a somebody which is good, never seen much of him but he feels real. Happy to see the Lucha Brothers split if I'm honest, they can do something with both of them on face/heel side. The Butcher still looks brilliant.

*Bloody love me a bit of MIRO. Delighted to see the handsome lug turn up. Him slagging WWE there was fine by me. He was being gaslighted by his boss, the fucking weirdo.

*Lots of other good stuff on the show, Brodie/Dustin was a beauty, god Dustin is something isn't he. But I really liked the new avenues taken for the Bucks/Page/Kenny stuff. Blinding work from all three here, Bucks doing a dead simple little segment sparking out that interviewer, nice. Kenny sounded actually quite natural in his promo and it had a great end bit saying Hangman should probably consider some other options and Kenny just admitting teaming with Hangman made him look at him differently, nice that he kinda said that he liked the team but it was just a thing, in contrast to Adam Page.

*Adam Page, what a wonderful character he is to follow. The sit down with Big Tone felt nice and real and Hangman just giving out about being a fucking idiot was great character. Especially his 'I just feel full of poison'. He breaks my heart the handsome bastard, an incredibly relatable character. Can't wait for him to find his groove and start buckshotting fools. He's their Sting, and he's ace at it.

I'm not questioning what he's doing, I just don't think he's very good. @BomberPat suggestion that he should just be there for the hot tag is fine but that limits him massively. That he's been going 11 years and is this clumsy is insane. Hopefully it's just recovering from his injury but I'm not convinced.

Luchasaurus shouldn't be wrestling the standard big man style and ditching the kicks and flips, but at the same time, no one should be getting heat on him. He's designed for the opposing team to absolutely want to keep him out of the ring, because once he gets the tag, he's unstoppable. Fewer kick combos, more big fuck-off spin kicks that take guys down in one shot. No doubling-over on gut kicks because that's a cue for one of the opponent's signature combos which he can THEN counter; just no-sell the fucking thing and spin kick 'em. As soon as his back hits the mat, his aura's gone.

-Dustin Rhodes is a fucking boss, we all knew that, if he's still going in a few months, him with the tnt belt teaching lads how to work an 8 minute TV match would be fine by me. 

-It's amazing how a simple piledriver can still make me lose my shit, in a world of destroyers and poison ranas, it's still the most devastating looking move. 

-The Hardy thing was fine, him and Guevara need never cross paths again. 

-Hangman and Omega should only meet in the main event for the belt, not before, and hangman should win in 30 seconds. 

-Why didn't Chuck Taylor say shit? He had a live mic....... 

But most importantly....... 

EDDIE KINGSTON WAS NEVER ELIMINATED.....
