They need to do a long chase with Kenny on top as king shit doing everything he can to avoid Page.

Have Kenny beat Moxley after winning this tournamemt by cheating to beat Page in the final then keep the belt on Kenny for a year.

You want fans dying to see Page finally beat Kenny and win the belt. Page despite all his progress still isn't ready.

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.

Nobody who works there bashes AEW no matter what they do (except MJF but obviously he's meant to). 

I know. For whatever reason I thought they'd be better than that. Several times he was nearly further injured by the melee round about him and nobody even blinked. The fact he's made a statement at all is ridiculous. For me it just emphasizes how badly they know they f***** up. Disappointing is all.

This Thursday night we'll see Kenny be eliminated from the tournament because of Hangman. The ref will take a bump allowing Kingston and his cronies to come down and beat on Kenny only for Page to make the save because in Hangman's eyes he and Kenny are still mates. As he hits the buckshot lariat on Penta, the ref will recover in time to hit Kenny with the DQ loss.

Later on Page will defeat Wardlow, which in turn will have MJF get rid of Wardlow as his muscle saying the Inner Circle doesn't accept losers. Wardlow will then by default turn face and chase after MJF, who'll keep putting the Inner Circle between himself and his former heavy. 

The final of the tournament will have Kenny seeking revenge on Page and somehow costing him the match turning him full on heel and really kickstarting the feud between himself and Hangman. At the minute it's basically just Omega saying he doesn't want to team with Hangman anymore, this gives them an actual reason to feud. It also allows Penta to win the whole thing (without picking up a single pinfall victory), which continues the feud between Moxley and Kingston's Family for now.

They need to have Kenny/Penta go on first, with Kenny winning. Then have Kenny at ringside for Hangman/Wardlow. Hangman is subtly distracted by Kenny throughout and the match ends up a time limit draw. Hangman and Wardlow are both out without eating a loss and Kenny gets to celebrate his ‘cheap’ tournament victory like he’s just won the title in the main event of Wrestlemania.

It's just a little bit.... North Korea in my opinion.
It's like when Reby Hardy went on Twitter [rightly] bashing AEW for letting Matt continue after getting concussed. AEW had Matt come out at the next available opportunity and go 'No, I'm alright really everyone! Nothing to see here!' and that was it. 
AEW currently is the babyface company but they are rapidly losing a lot of that goodwill with all but their most diehard fans by doing things like that.
It's transparent 'Everything's great because we say it's great' phony propaganda that WWE so often [rightly] gets blasted for and one of these days AEW is going to find itself in a situation they can't just gloss over.

Word coming out of Thursdays tapings about Abadon being hospitalised with a “serious injury”. No confirmation on exactly what the injury is, but there’s a chance that the match will be removed from the show.

As for Reynolds’ statement- he probably knows that if he goes ranting on twitter that he’ll likely get replaced. Not that he shouldn’t do because what happened was bullshit, but i doubt that he’s holding anything against the Private Party guy (I forget whose who) but he also knows that this will probably blow over in a week or so

It might be because Kingston and fam are the shiny new thing and the Elite angle has been going for ages, but it still feels too early for Omega vs Page. This week was the first time Kenny has embraced a heel side, with all the previous hints being based on him NOT doing something (NOT hitting him with a table, NOT hanging around to support Hangman's win, etc). The angle needs some deliberate actions to make it personal. And I wonder, does the angle even need a title? Especially when you've got a roster stacked with in ring talent and storyline possibilities. To have Kenny act like the best bout machine, and be the best bout machine, defeats the object of being a heel, which is to piss you off. The ludicrous entrance blurb is perfect for a heel who deliberately avoids the big challengers in favour of hammering scrubs in 30 seconds, to maintain his rep and record. Yes, they did a version of this with MJF, but Omega has the career history, personality and presentation to make the idea of a vet coasting his way to title opportunities fresh. I think this tourney should be the breaking point of the team and the start of the proper build to their face off. If Omega forfeits to avoid Penta, he should cost Page his match to fully lay his stall out that if he doesn't succeed, Page can't either, to maintain his insistence that Page needs him. Page sees this in front of his face, and goes on the chase to beat Omega for the personal reasons we want, not for some belt. That also gives us a combo of Mox, Kingston and Penta for a month or so, which is mouthwatering.

To weigh in on AEW's inept handling of the Reynolds incident, I genuinely think the Blade deserves some credit for spotting it first and getting him out of there. He was then immediately let down by the ringside medical team and other competitors; the only reason I can think of right now for Doc Samson et al not getting to Alex, especially after Rey Fenix also knocked himself loopy earlier in the night, was due to the crush of other wrestlers not clearing the way. Ultimately, somebody has the responsibility of spotting these incidents and making the immediate call, and that didn't happen. Damage limitation tweets can get in the sea. The next time something like this happens, I want to see an audible called and support staff on the scene. Actions not words.

It's unfortunate because, as well as the ludicrous Dinner Debonair that was utterly brilliant but I have no desire to re-watch, I thought this episode contained the best run of segments on AEW so far, with Mox's and Kingston's stellar promos on each other ("I'm gonna beat you and torture you until I get my friend back!" Awesome), into the greatest American lucha match I've ever seen. If the Rey head drop wasn't a spot, they still used it to add to an already incredible match of properly paced high spots, theatrical striking, and emotional brother vs brother storytelling.

Were you expecting Alex Reynolds to say that Dr Samson is an idiot who doesn't know what he's doing and that his collegaues are negligent jerks.

They did a double DQ on Dark last week, as part of the Brandon Cutler/Peter Avalon 'neither man has won a match' feud.

 

Reynolds is a young guy, who clearly is enjoying being a decent part of a big show. I think his statement was probably rather him preferring that there just wasn't any fuss over it, rather than it being some dark conspiracy. He's probably embarrassed by the whole thing - I'm not saying that's the right response at all, but that I see that as more likely than some dictatorial nonsense. I don't think I've seen anyone else saying this or the Matt Hardy thing was handled well.

No, however there is the difference between that and going 'The referee and the Doctor both acted impeccably' when it's blatantly obvious they didn't.
I don't actually think Reynolds needed to make a statement at all to be honest, apart from giving an update on his condition.
It's the company that should have made a statement acknowledging that errors were made and saying changes will be implemented going forward - a simple tactic that would have garnered goodwill.
Instead it's like they've gone 'Alex, listen, we're copping a lot of shit for this. Go on your social media and defend us' 'What do you want me to say?' 'Say you're completely fine and that everyone did everything right and that whatever people think it is they saw they didn't. We're all just one big happy family.'

The fact that Reynolds statement is getting slammed by everyone on Twitter, including those who state they are big AEW fans, shows that it was a mis-step and people are starting to roll their eyes at this 'Everything's fine' approach.

Absolutely. As I said above the fact he said anything at all is embarrassing and draws attention to the fact that it's a blatant cover up. The amount of experience in the ring should have meant he was moved out of harm's way and the medics could have attended to him at ringside. The wrestlers didn't so the ref should've made some attempt to shield him as he was nearly further injured 2/3 times before he was dragged into the corner.

That's one area where you can't fault WWE in my opinion, certainly recently, if anything is obviously wrong the ref and medics are all over it and it's covered fairly well.

Charlotte slapped the shit out of a concussed Kairi Sane and powerbombed her through a table in recent memory.

I've been concussed in a match myself, remember how it felt and how long it took for the ref to figure it out. So I have a bit of a soft spot when this stuff happens when it comes to spotting it. I watched Dynamite live and had no idea it happened, but noticed the match slowed down when Nick tagged in and Reynolds was slow in the movements. With so much going on in the ring, it sucks to say, but I can see why they missed it. That's not giving anybody a pass, but to me there is not the gross negligence argument of the Matt Hardy situation. Once they spotted it they got him out and didn't let him back in. These things don't always get caught in real time as they happen, he was supposed to be out of the way for a while after the spot so in the moment you just think he's selling the big double team. Getting dragged to the corner to tag out may have been part of the plan anyway. As absurd as it this sounds, it might be a genuine case for the Gorilla Monsoon second-ref-on-the-floor argument in these big multiman matches so there is a guy to check on folks who aren't involved in the current spot in the ring.

Jon Jones would like a word.

The heel who thinks hes incredible and noone else is good enough works really well when he's right, as he can just get cockier and cockier until someone comes along and proves him wrong.

Omega should absolutely win this tournament, and should beat hangman to do it, although he should probably be forced to cheat to do so. That should send hangman rock bottom and then his redemption story can begin, culminating in a match with Omega for the title down the line.
