    imagine thinking in the year of our lord 2023 people don’t know who Japanese wrestlers are. Did they know who nakamura was? Because I remember an arena of 20,000 people losing their mind when he debuted. If Okada showed up as Cody’s 5th man at survivor series the roof would blow off the place. People know who Japanese wrestlers are, the AEW fanbase absolutely knows the top Japanese wrestlers.

    Yeah the what ifs you can hold. Naka was established in NXT before ever making it to a national American audience.

    Imagine the reaction from the AEW marks in this thread had you swapped out MJF for Roman and White for LA Knight…

    When shit is bad, just call it out for what it is… that main event was shit on by most people who watched it. Shawn said it was the worst rated main event on that beloved site TK is obsessed with. It was an over booked mess that lacked any type of logic and the build to it was worse and largely unnecessary.

    It’s all good I’ll go back to not watching that product because it’s impossible to have a honest conversation about it.

    Wait, is that why you don't watch it? Because you don't like the discourse?

    Everyone did exactly what you’re asking them to do in here. Most all the comments ITT called it an overbooked mess.

    Are we ignoring the fact that Jay White lost to outside interference and a foreign object….or does that not fit someone’s narrative?

    The problem with the MJF main event was the finish seemed anticlimactic given all the twists and teases in the show and match itself. I expected more of a payoff than just him winning with the diamond ring and the show fading to black on him celebrating with Cole.

    If they did something impactful with the Devil afterwards I don’t think nearly as many people would’ve disliked the match. It wasn’t THAT bad

    WWE pretty much never doing surprise moments anymore is so annoying. why not wait and get that pop when Orton's music hits.

    they'd rather get retweeted by ESPN.

    I think they just wanted to make sure people wouldn’t think it was CM Punk if they kept it too vague before the show

    PTSD from all the years of CM Punk chants

    Cody had literally a torn pec. Not in kayfabe but in real life. A real-life one armed man

    We already called it bad, you fucking imbecile, yet you trying to claim you can't have an honest conversation about it. You can't because you don't want to.

    Claim you don't watch the product yet you comment on watching the product on the other message board.

    Because they didn't want all their fans going into the day thinking it would be CM Punk as the 5th man.

    During threads for the AEW PPVs and TV shows, makes comments live that only someone that is actively watching would be able to make. Like "wtf are they chanting," something about one of the security guards in the background, comments about a specific move someone does right after they do it, comments about what a commentator says right after they say it, etc.

    Yet claims he hasn't watched in 6 months.

    Cut the shit Bankz and admit you're a hate watcher.

    Because the dirt sheets spoil 99% of the returns before they happen. So they now feed those returns to national media outlets that have a larger reach.

    I agree its fucking lame, I want to be surprised I don't want to know if a wrestler is returning.

    In this case I also think WWE was afraid of non stop CM Punk chants at SS given how the IWC is speculating his return to WWE.

    Seth was a well established main event player. And the torn peck wasn't a fucking made up storyline the day of the PPV. If you don't see the difference on all levels cool. I don't have the time to educate the stupid out of you today Shawn.

    I was at that Full Gear 2021 show. Great event.

    Hangman won the title.
    Punk beat Kingston.
    Danielson beat Miro
    MJF beat Darby

    Tons of fun.
