    One of my buddies was telling me to keep an eye out for that. Way more into the dirt sheets so I’ll probably tune in to see

    Been nothing on the dirt sheets about Gargano other than people speculating because Gargano is from Cleveland

    the AEW roster is deep enough that they should be able to put on a better hour than this.

    Apparently, Killer Kross got inserted into the top title angle because USA wants one of the titles on RAW.

    Why not put Rollins, Riddle, Owens, Styles, or Balor in that role instead of a guy whose top title in the entire wrestling industry is the NXT championship??

    Meh, it's time for something new. Outside of Riddle, everyone you listed has had a run and have been booked horribly ever since.

    You can’t just put someone into a title program when they’ve been booked terribly. What are they, Jinder Mahal?

    Hot take. Thought Jinder’s run was a breath of fresh air. Didn’t get over how they hope but he had a believable look, he was a solid worker and at least they were trying to build a new star.

    Some Twitter user who has apparently reported some news before Fightful has reported it...




    He's posted quite a lot of things that haven't been announced elsewhere yet so proceed with caution looking at his other tweets if you don't want to potentially see a bunch of spoilers

    Well, they certainly workshopped the hell out of the “2 miniature versions of the heel interfere to help him win every match” formula that continues to this day.

    A huge part of the iwc has the opposite take… Cole has been given a ton of praise recently. Actually both booths have.

    I wonder if Drew knew that instead of going through a grueling series of matches to get here he could have just attacked whoever the #1 contender was and got added?

    Wrestling logic is amazing.

    I very much enjoy the booths. But I totally see why some don’t. I just think it’s funny that in recent weeks Cole has been getting his flowers by people who have followed WWE and yet some of the people trying to get into WWE again hate him.

    Breaking news: Some people just don't like certain people.

    Like I don't like Becky Lynch because of her voice even though she is an excellent wrestler. If I am watching a WWE event and she is talking, I will mute my TV.

    The booths adhere to the young annoying stereotype I think fits their current fan base. Macafees antics are so annoying. Graves I haven’t enjoyed either, although at one point I really liked him so I’m hoping with Vince gone maybe he’ll revert to when he started. Cole needs to go behind the curtain
