AEW Friday Night Rampage


Recommended Posts

Everything I’d like to say about CM Punk has already been said. I was grinning like a total idiot the entire time. Incredible.

But how good was that main event?! That’s as good a 5 minute TV match as I’ve seen in years. Every show should also end with Eddie Kingston like an excited child he gets to hang out with Sting.

It's difficult to really summarise a moment so intangible and emotional that it awakes your fandom in something you've loved most of your life, after the joy got dripped out of you after years of unrelenting dross, with little hope and sign of it returning. Maybe that's the best I can do tbf. It really could not have gone any better and you just hope this is the start of something really special.

I'm not even a massive Punk fan either, but he's given me two moments like this and let's all hope it works out better than last time. No Triple H in sight is a good start.

Having difficulty trying to get the new shirt from AEWs global shop. They'll have shifted a tidy amount of those before the weekend is out. 

They're smart enough to have thought this stuff through but it wouldn't surprise me if Jerry McDevitt's phone is hopping.

I stand by it.....I look forward to seeing him be reincarnated. I enjoyed him in his ROH days

The American shop has the same error. Been trying on both

That was fantastic all round from presentation, commentary (no, 'could it be?' type shite) Punk jumping into the crowd and then the promo itself. Sting and Darby looked cool as fuck up in the rafters too. Excellent stuff.

There's just no comparison between the fetid, over produced bile WWE queef out and AEW at the moment, & I'm very glad they exist as a viable alternative.

Hands up, I said earlier in this discussion that I didn't really care much for Punk, but fucking hell, that was an incredible moment. I watched the entrance on IG, then the full show, then that entrance twice more. Utterly brilliant. Goosebumps like yer man Taz. And it was just so simple. It's amazing reading back and realising how two decades of talent-hating WWE shite had half of us expecting this to be used to put more unnecessary heat on an already-over heel act, or have him swinging fake punches and cleaning house within minutes of being back after 7 years. No. Just give the guy a mic and all the time he wants. Keep the music playing, and cut to Darby when he says "Darby." I'm off to watch it again and put Cult of Personality back on my gym playlist.
