They are putting Lashley over huge
Inject it into my veins, let him hold the title until Summerslam
Okay, that makes a hell of a lot more sense than Miz headlining WM.
And I guess they decided Miz being a temp champ again was a better option than Otis being a dud one.
I just assume WWE has been very happy with Drew as champ, but felt bad he didn’t get his moment with the title in front of fans. This is there way to do right by him.
They have booked Lashley into a monster I love it. Give that man the title and let him do what he wants. Just watched the end of raw him getting that win surprised me.
Alexa has turned into papa shango
Asuka lost four teeth last night. Shayna accidental wrecked her mouth. If she isn’t concussed I will be shocked.
That seems like a very off career move for him. Vince will shun him now.
He was this close to a Hall of Fame induction, too. Probably two or three years away.
He's going to miss out on that sweet, sweet, 30k a year Hall of Fame/Legends Contract that forces him to show up on Raw with a day's notice to work a two minute backstage segment.
I hope they call him "The Giant" Paul Wight
The Go Big Show
that kick was fucking brutal. Asuka definitely got the cesaro mouth right now.
Schiavone: "What's the Large Event doing here on Dynamite?"
Is tonight a taped show? I think it would've been better for him to just show up on the show tonight instead of ruining the surprise. Not expecting much out of him, but I sure as shit didn't expect to see him on AEW's roster today.
Taped show. They are doing another YT show on Monday’s that he will be commentating on, but the plan is for him to wrestle occasionally.
As an aside, Show’s WWE ECW run was fucking sweet as hell and it’s not talked about enough.
Wonder how much Punk is asking for? More than Tony’s allowance apparently.
Punk went on that whole diatribe how he was texted an offer, and Punk thought that was unprofessional. I assume he pissed a lot of people within AEW off when he said that. Of course, I doubt that would stop AEW from hiring him, but I think it makes it more likely that Punk would need to actually show them that he’s interested in a return.
Punk's self loathing chip on his shoulder is tiring.
If Punk is serious about making him an offer and the company actually wants to improve their rating, why not take the money you paid 62 year old Sting and washed up Big Show and give that money to Punk?
For as much as people love some of the guys involved, I don't think aew is a particularly well run or booked program. Most of the guys who they got from wwe did not end up better than they were in wwe.
There isn’t a salary cap in wrestling
Correct. There isn't one in baseball either. Doesn't mean teams should go out and sign Ken Griffey Jr. to a big money deal. He isn't going to help them win games.
If I can sign Mike Trout for the same money I am signing Ken Griffey and Frank Thomas for, I would probably sign Mike Trout.
The Punk hype is played out. One MMA drubbing didn’t ruin him and the second one even was fine, but he has talked and acting himself to death on wrestling. Some of the comments were petty on wrestling. The stuff on AEW was cringey and the Fox half return wrecked the shock factor. There just isn’t the intrigue there. What would be the angle? I’m sure it would get some attention but it’s a % of what it would have been in 2015-2018.
you have those numbers for what AEW is paying people
Sting doesn’t put on makeup at an event he is booked at for less than 5k extra, he isn’t showing up to Dynamite every week for chump change.
Also, it’s a multi year full time deal. He doesn’t need the money. If he turned down a new WWE contract along with the royalties of his merch sale, he is making a shit ton in AEW.
While I agree if he returned now it wouldn't be the same if he did it before, but it would still be a hell of a lot bigger than a 60 something year old Sting or a 50 year old Big Show. Other than an initial pop for them showing up (which they didn't even get with the big show), who wants to see them in the ring?
And really, why spoil Big Show joining on Twitter? So dumb
NXT has been great this week. Hope AEW is good I’ll watch it next. Screw Monday
Cant wait until Kross is called up to the main roster and ruined in the first two weeks. Guy is a monster.
Also, Scarlett booty is on a level all its own.
Moxley looks like shit.
Why you gotta be such an amazing asshole Adam Cole!!!
Curious if NXT will have any representation on Mania double night. Seems like they won't. Maybe they do a Take Over a few weeks later.
Either way the TV coming out of the last TakeOver has been pretty strong. Nice job with Kross, Cole tonight. I love me some Johnny G and The Way. And Cameron Grimes is low key the most entertaining man in wrestling. The Million Dollar Man stuff was great.
Indi wanting to fuck Lumus was hilarious. Johnny and the way crack me up.
Johnny has come a long way as a Character. He's fantastic. I'm not sure you can name 5 talents who have been in as many classics as Johnny has since 2015. Not only as a singles wrestler (his match with Almas is the greatest match i've ever seen in person) to his tag matches as DIY
Nick Gage needs to get on AEW TV
he’s on my list for possibilities for #6 in the Revolution ladder match
There was talk that he was going to be part of Cody’s TNT Title open challenge but it fell apart during Covid. One can dream.
7 pm EST on BR Live
In same promo Charlotte said she came back not wanting to challenge for the raw title, and then challenges Asuka for raw title...
Christ, told you all she was getting a title shot again at mania
And Charlotte jobs out tag Champs. Super Charlotte time
Vince just can’t help himself with Charlotte
Ali wants to show retribution what they are about? Wrestling a jobber that has already just wrestled. Ok good
Wtf kind of finisher was that?
Just have Charlotte beat the Miz. Super saiyan Charlotte appears.
It could happen, you know that it’s going to be a good shinanigan free main event when they start it at 10:55
