Lol, it's my morning routine.
WHAT A MANEUUUUUUUUUUUVER!
As good as he still is on commentary I wish we could get smartass Punk back
Funny this was posted because yesterday I was going to ask what role exactly does Cody, The Bucks, Omega, etc have behind the scenes. Is AEW fully owned by the Khans?
We’ll yeah, if he was filled out some he would be jungle man
For someone who loves WWE so much more than a guy like Punk, Bryan "White T-Shirt" Danielson is seemingly allergic to pushing merch
Khan owns it all. They were brought in and given EVP titles and The Bucks had input on the tag division while Omega handled the women's division. Cody I think was more of an all around guy.
Cody is like one more embarrassment from painting half his face and being knock-off Stardust
Eddie Kingston in the AEW t-shirt
Ethan "Tightest Tits in the Game" Page has quite the ring to it
Casino Ladder Match next week is very interesting... wonder if that could be a way to for Hangman to return and get back in the title picture.
Has his wife had her baby yet?
To be fair, his one shirt available right now isn't a must-get. I'd prefer one that was a bit simpler; just maroon with the American dragon logo. The current one is too busy.
Besides, he pulls off the plain t-shirt look really well.
Same. The alarm will go off and I'll one eye my phone for a few minutes before getting up. Rumor Roundup is part of the process.
I had assumed she had by now, but looks like there's been no word one way or the other. Hmm.
With Miro not having the TNT title, Punk arriving and feuding with the Team Taz guys, Kenny and Cole in The Elite fueding with Jungle Boy, Danielson, and Christian, and potentially Adam Page coming back any time now (not to mention other guys like Mox around the top of the rankings), AEW really needs an Elimination Chamber style match they could roll out this winter to get a lot of guys in the title picture.
Maybe some kind of a ladder match...even a...
Not really what I mean but I am looking forward to that
Sorry what were you thinking? Like a month or so-long feud interwoven with a bunch of guys?
They show records and rankings, so I would be all for an NCAA style tournament.
Yeah like something they can blow off some of the current stories they've got going on in a chamber type match with Omega, Jungle Boy, Danielson, Cole, Christian, etc. and even incorporate potentially guys like Punk and Miro
Would love that. Been a long time since we had a big pro wrestling tourney.
what happened to the ranking system? Has it been done away with?
need the KOTR to be brought back and let my man Woods get his shine
No they've always had special matches that allow a winner to jump the line. This isn't the first Casino ladder match, and they also use the Casino Battle Royal(e) for it.
Rankings help keep fresh contenders rolling in throughout the year.
Aren't they doing a tournament in honor of Owen Hart now that they announced that partnership with his estate?
Yes I completely forgot about that. No date announced though. I wonder if they'll do it later this fall/end of the year.
They have so much going on right now, I would hold off on doing it until spring.
Feels like that because they have had a lot of special dynamite shows but after next week it's pretty wide open till Full Gear in November
All those W-L records are juiced. I mean I assume the matches are actually happening against job guys on You Tube and not some Pat Patterson is Rio stuff, but everyone has a great record. Orange Cassidy is like 16-1 and they were talkiing about Dustin Rhodes having a 14 match winning streak. I forgot he still wrestled. Which is fine, because I remember when they first started Cody was talking some nonsense about records and strength of schedule like it was college football.
Also, Cody getting noticeably booed. Heel turn would work, but is he too much for a mark for himself to realize some hard truths that would expose. I think the dude really thinks he's going to be a big time Hollywood actor and then a Senator. With that neck tattoo...
The records do matter and there is a kind of "strength of schedule" factored in. It's not just winning but who you beat that determines how you move up. It's all kayfabe and it's be wrong to take it too seriously one way or the other, but it's a good idea that focuses the booking and keeps the show away from endless feuds, 50/50 booking, and rematch after rematch.
Armed Anderson lmfao
got to tell you I'm a sucker for Draft shows, tuned in for first time in months, 1st 2 picks and they pick their own champs to stay on their shows... just make them draft ineligible, say it ahead of time and dont waste the opening segment... yikes. also Demon Balor lost because the ropes broke? come the fuck on.
I'm just glad they don't have fake war rooms going crazy for each pick like last year. But, I'm in a pretty checked-out mode on all wrestling right now. Until Royal Rumble I figure.
there was a draft tonight? Sorry, was busy banging a (not Shawn Spears) 10 and watching Rampage.
A lot of these aew women's matches are so hard to watch. Jade has a money look but she is really fucking green. Don't think she is ready for this push
Legit shocked Rosa didn't win that match.
I think it's a signal Jade is the next challenger to Britt Baker. I'm guessing they want Britt to break the record for longest reign
Bobby Fish to AEW
Crowd been pretty dead for most this match....not your typical aew crowd
They tape too much in 1 night for these crowds. 4 hours is a lot to ask fans to keep the energy up especially with how hard the crowd goes for Dynamite.
I think rampage would benefit from being live. Recent episodes the crowd has been noticeably more quiet and the match qualities are also dipping for rampage. If they just want to accept its a B show, it's still a mostly easy hour to watch, but they got the talent to make that night hot too
Guess the issue would be travel expenses and a lot of work to independently film a one hour show. Maybe film their dark stuff and rampage together. Not sure the best solution
Yeah I think keeping Rampage as taped with Dynamite works, but maybe they need to lose Dark Elevation taping before hand.
Then again, this Rochester crowd was weird all night. Very rambunctious and chatty for an AEW crowd.
I've read a lot from people who go to tapings who say they are tired by the end but don't regret there being four hours of content. That may change in four years when the newness is totally gone, but by then they may be running two different shows/tapings a week anyway .
yeah I'm pretty sure they piped in audio for OC's entrance, was your typical instantaneous wall of sound while the video showed a subdued audience
I think they want to make Rampage a live show, but it makes more sense right now to tape
Eventually the money will line up
If they don't already do it then they should split the 4 hrs into two sessions. One afternoon one around 3 pm and other in the evening around 7pm.
you can’t expect fans to be in the building from 3 to 9pm. Unless your saying you sell a double should but I would imagine it’s going to be extremely difficult to sell enough tickets for two shows so it looks full.
Who the fuck is going to a show on Wednesday at 3pm
