The AEW Wednesday Night Dynamite Thread

Yeah, that's a strange stick to beat AEW with. I would much rather have the wrestlers from Dark make up the crowd rather than actual members of the public. The only critisism from me about the wrestler crowd, is that some of them shouldn't be out there. Such as Jake Roberts, Shida, even Lance Archer unless it's for a spot. 

About 50 matches have been announced for Dark including a Britt Baker segment. There are a few that are intriguing matchups so I will probably check it out while working and skip through a lot of it. 

It's amazing how much Britt Baker has turned her character round from a year ago. From looking green as grass with no character, to being arguably the leader of the women's division. I say that as a fan of Shida, but her stock seems to have fallen loads since winning the title, which shows how much focus is put on their title, compared to how Thunder Rosa looks, being signed to a different company.

EDIT: Twitter is a bleak place at times. Imagine commenting this on a post about someone receiving a college degree, or ever for that matter. It's always the ones without a picture of themselves on their profile.

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.

Because its the middle of a pandemic, there was nothing to suggest to me as an occasional viewer that they were wrestlers

They all look like wrestlers, some of them are in full gimmick attire, if you've watched more than 1 episode you'll recognize wrestlers who have wrestled on Dynamite in the crowd, the commentators mention it and Billy Gunn is one of them. It's really quite obvious. 

And anyone who thinks "that stupid wrestling shit" is going to think that anyway, so who cares?

2) JR sounds like he doesn't want to be there.

Oh he doesn't.

I feel sorry for J.R. I used to listen to his podcast regularly but it was impossible to ignore his bitterness towards the wrestling business, and how he got treated in WWE. He's constantly on the defensive, sarcastically apologising to anyone who criticises him, or even people who might potentially criticise him. It's a really painful listen.

He's my favourite play by play guy of all time but wrestling has changed and now he's trying to put over a product that he doesn't care about. He's Bobby Heenan in WCW basically. He also seems to have fallen into the trap of thinking that most of the viewers share his opinions, and that it's not a big deal to mix up wrestlers names, etc, because nobody really cares about them. He was openly shitting on New Japan while doing New Japan's commentary, which is insane really.

He's said that wrestling is all he has now that his wife died, which is really really sad. They'll never fire him but they'd be best keeping him for pre-taped backstage interviews and hype packages.

My thing was simply that it doesn't look good that some are wearing masks and some aren't. It would have looked better if they were all wearing masks. There's not really much reason for them not to. 

 

You will likely have a few of them all hoping to get noticed and be the next pineapple Pete. As all are tested doesn’t bother me.

if it’s on the second day, then winter isn’t coming is it, it’s already arrived

Now all I can picture is Omega coming out with ear muffs and a scarf on saying to the girls with the brushes 'brrr int it cold? Gritters are out' 

Another good episode anyway, I like the guest commentator thing, reminds me of '98 WWF in a good way 

I assumed it was the Bucks who twatted Moxley backstage? Then again I fast forward through anything they're (The Bucks) in so I'm probably wrong 

For all the talk of how great Kingston is on the mic (and he is) Tazz is usually superb as well, he's got tiny head Cage and one man Lenny and Lodi tribute act Starks over, can only get better with Hobbs with them

I'd love to see Moxley cross paths with the Bucks at some point, Moxley and a partner (Darby? Page? Cody?) vs The Bucks at an upcoming PPV is a direction I'd very much be in favour of.
