The AEW Wednesday Night Dynamite Thread

Listening to Cody and Jericho on Jericho’s podcast, they know what they have with jungle boy. Jericho talks about his daughters who have no interest in wrestling being interested in him. 
 

wAs also good to hear them talk about what needs to be better, the repetition of join us angles on same show, and same spots being repeated seems to now be being worked to iron out

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.

My super casual fan friend who I live stream watch AEW with only wanted to see it because she saw a meme of Orange Cassidy. She immediately was all in on Jungle Boy, his appeal is obvious.

EDIT: Forgot to add the only time my mum saw AEW was when my sister had it on and it was the Jericho/Jungle Boy 10 minute challenge, again, mother was all in on Jungle Jack.

So the reason Nick Jackson was away around September and not doing much for a while after was due to him having Covid, I don't think this was previously made public but he did mention it on a recent instagram story.

I'm only a casual viewer so it might be why, but I still don't get the buzz around Darby Allin at all. He looks like such a un-threatening little dweeb. He reminds me of those guys - on the wrong end of their 20's - who still hang around with teenagers, drinking cheap cider in parks (which they scrounged off someone else as they're perpetually skint). That's when they're not trying to nonce underage girls on tumblr. I just can't take him seriously as a threat, especially as a champion.

Are you one of¬†those guys? Sounds like a very detailed ‚Äėdescription‚Äô there.¬†

I find that he has a completely unique style of wrestling which counters his stature (does still look like he fingers girls in Slipknot hoodies, tho), it's not your typical small guy flips and instead it's this ultra intense cannonball like style where he just throws his entire body with what looks like reckless abandon. He's one of the very few that makes dives not look contrived.

Finally caught up on last weeks Dynamite. Really enjoyable, great start to the year for them.

That Fenix/Omega match was just a super fun, crazy sprint. The rolling cutter into the snapdragon suplex and Fenix's backflip into a german both got audible 'fuckin hell!'s out of me, so mission accomplished there. The pop when somebody kicks out of the One-Winged Angel will be insane.

Not arsed at all about the Good Brothers but I am intrigued in which direction it's going. The Young Bucks look like they may be playing reluctant heels, caught in the middle but still trying to back up their old mates. That's the impression I got when they attacked Brian Pillman Jnr anyway. But surely it's only a matter of time until they embrace it and become the dickhead heels Matt Jackson in paticular was born to be. Shoutout to my dodgy download for cutting off just before Nick Jackson joined the 'too sweet' pose. 

Everything else on this show was pretty strong too. The 8-man was a fine opener, Moxley was as good as ever, handsome Wardlow continues to improve, Snoop Dogg is funny as fuck and Baby Sting got some much-needed mic time. The only issue is that while I was enjoying the Shida/Abadon match, they seemed to go to the finish out of nowhere. When they have a packed show it always seems to be the womens match that suffers time-wise. 

Oh, and I do like Cody, but him being the first guest on the Dynamite edition of the Waiting Room is eye-rollingly predictable.

There's a good reason he's compared to Jeff Hardy. He's scrawny, paints his face and chucks himself about like he's willing to die. His finisher, like Hardy's is a move based on just climbing up on something high and lobbing yourself onto someone. Yeah he looks like he'd lose 9/10 fights he'd be in, but he's willing to die fighting.

I thought WWE copyrighted the "too sweet" gesture or have I got that arse above tit?

The Bucks said a few years ago they got a cease and desist from WWE about doing it and selling merch and threatening to sue them etc. After Dynamite this week, it was brought up and Tama Tonga bascially said it was a work. 

I’m currently reading the Bucks book and I’m hoping there’s some mention in there about the whole thing.

Brandi has been the worst thing on the show for ages, but I'm also really starting to get fed up of Cody. That's partly because he's treading water, but also because everything he's doing at the moment feels so unearned. He just gets to do stuff because he's Cody, like hes a legend even though he really, really isn't.

I've not been able to click with Cody at all since AEW started, he's obviously talented as hell and can have a stellar match but good god do I hate his smug face. He's spoken about "shades of grey" but even when he's in full face mode he's just an unlikeable prick on screen to me.

I do have to say I kinda liked (for the wrong reasons) how he did a Hogan when losing the TNT title to Darby, made it about himself.
