    They need to take the belt off Rosa. Her matches have been mediocre at best ever since winning the title.

    If they book it right, the Starks vs. Hobbs feud is going to rocket launch the careers of them two.

    lol I guess… he’s been very good in his role. I’m glad they have gone away from the selfies since winning MITB. He’s been really good since winning that case.

    I think he’s 0-6 since MITB but it certainly doesn’t feel like it. He’s hustling his way onto the main event scene. Kid has it.

    even though I figured this is where they’d go with the title and the turn I thought the segment was done perfectly and Starks was absolutely money, per usual, on the mic. Great promo that really made you feel for him when he got blindsided by Hobbs.

    I feel like when we look back on Starks’ career one day, that ~2 minute segment is going to be the moment we point to as the catalyst for his ascent to greatness.

    Her matches are fine, they just do zero builds for her matches and she isn’t great on the mic. A lot of similarities with Hangman. The company needs to get better at sustaining title runs. Their build ups are great and lead to moments, then they stagnate.

    This right here. I feel like TK puts the belts on talented people but once they get on the mic they are absolute trash. Or he needs to go the route with the bad mic people and give them a Mark Sterling/Paul Heyman type sidekick to talk on the mic for them.

    I thought Jericho, Mox, and Kenny all had great title runs. I thought Shida was a really good champion and Jade has been a great champions. For me it’s been Rosa and Hangman who weren’t great and Hangman had great matches he just never had a really compelling storyline

    For the TNT title, everything post Miro as been mostly mediocre, but at least there have been some good matches.

    Dynamite built three legit young stars

    Hook
    Starks
    Garcia

    Built two good feuds
    Swerve/Lee vs new tag challenger
    Starks/Hobbs

    Put more heat on a hot feud
    Jungle Boy/Christian

    Setup a big time title match
    Mox/Jericho


    In a two hour show with some of their big names out

    That’s amazing. That’s was as compelling a two hours of wrestling you’ll see. Side note, a great way to offset the WWE news is to put on a show like that with a lot of your young talent. TK misses sometimes, but not here.

    Just started to watch the replay. Am I losing my mind or are they cutting in and out of Spanish and English commentary?

    This shit is annoying.

    Eddie is so much more over than anybody in wrestling right now. The proper build to him winning the title in NYC (against an awesome heel) would be one of the more iconic moments in modern wrestling history.

    What are your picks for the 8 (I assume) trios teams in the trios tournament? I thought about it but I realized quite a few of the obvious picks (death triangle and house of black for two examples) has someone out for various reasons so might not even be able to participate.

    My dream line up

    house of black
    Death triangle
    Dark order with Hangman
    Bucks with a returning Kenny
    JAS in some capacity (2.0 + Garcia)
    Blackpool combat club
    Best friends
    FTR with Punk


    This was a bad time to break up team taz

    They are going to have the title match at All Out or whatever the next PPV is so I can't imagine they would have Punk involved with this

    right which is why I said my dream. There will be a couple jobber teams in there like the Gunn club, probably one with sydal, Dante, and one other guy. People there just to lose early

    using the trios tournament to bring back Kenny is very underwhelming to me.

    rather have Hangman turn on Dark Order and join up with the Bucks.

    Just get rid of the bright as fuck color scheme. Get rid of the “2.0”. Sprinkle in a few more Indy guys with upside. Go back to PLE being in venues and maybe try to tour the weekly show at some point and get out of the PC. The final points probably can’t happen to you get a big draw/Indy talent to NXT or you drop down a couple people to from main roster.

    Im with you on this. Kenny needs to return and right into the main event scene. Not this tournament. You want his return to be a huge moment and have a large impact.

    Unless they throwing a swerve at us, looked like to me they were teasing Hangman joining up with the Bucks.
