    But also I think that twitter post with the full swerve-hangman match also has every other match posted from Full Gear.

    I didn’t like this MJF/Jay White angle they ran with Saturday because it was overbooked compared to the below but I found the below interesting.

    That makes it less interesting to me. Same with NXT doing the HHH attacks Shawn Michaels backstage angle with Carmelo Hayes. I’ve already seen it or read about it, so if you’re redoing it, you have to make it twice as good.

    I’m going to make an educated guess that a lot of people watching wrestling now either didn’t watch or weren’t old enough to remember a Clash of Champions show from 1994.

    I like that this Hausman dude’s gimmick when not pushing CM Punk’s thoughts on everything is just “reporting” the most obvious things in wrestling

    Looks like the angle from TV earlier this week with Juice was to write him off TV while dealing with an injury

    Hangman vs Christian for the TNT title would be a fun feud to get him back in the winner's circle

    Christian can make fun of him for being a bad father due to the home invasion and committing immoral acts in the death match. He can also make fun of him for not holding any AEW singles gold in 18 months or however long, so the TNT Title wouldn't be seen as a "step down" for him perception wise. The matches would be pretty good too and it's something as far as I can recall that we haven't seen before.

    Much more interesting IMO than seeing Cope huffing and puffing after his entrance like the Ultimate Warrior. That feud doesn't really need a title anyways and they can always come back to it whenever they want.

    Feel confident he's been re-signed for a while. He's still young too. Get thru the next AEW contract and then see what happens. Maybe WWE, maybe not.

    I do think he's every bit the generational talent he claims to be. It'll be interesting.

    That Ross Sapp guy is a huge mark. The worst kind that thinks he's one of the boys because some wrestling school took his check. Also, a perv.

    What’s the purpose of the tournament? I gather that something similar is done in Japan.

    Apparently they are unifying the ROH title, the NJPW Strong Openweight Title, the the Continental Classic title all into one title for a Triple Crown title.

    Hopefully there is a future world title shot attached to it as well. I’m sure we’ll learn more specifics on the Selection Special.

    And they should have a story with one of the top guys who got snubbed being actively pissed and disrespected about not getting in. Gives even more weight to just being selected when top guys are furious about not getting in.

    This women's match is terrible

    Some moves are being done but there is no rhythm, just people waiting their turn to do their next spot. Ivy Nile was literally holding herself back because I think someone was out of place so she was like running in place to let the spot happen before she broke it up.

    And of course Natalya team won. Fuck she never goes away

    So they gave the surprise without giving the pop…

    hopefully the Chicago crowd doesn’t chant for CM Punk all night.

    Jey didn’t seem to be happy with the announcement. Paying for the sins of his past

    Nobody watches Japanese wrestling. He’s not establish to the general American audience.

    He’s stolen a belt and wasn’t able to beat a wrestler who wasn’t medically cleared to compete a few hours early. Add to that he had interference from his crew and still lost to a one leg man.

    Booked uber strong. My bad
