I like discussing wrestling over there.
Why is it so hard to just tell us what time the damn selection special will be?
Good for her getting out of that NWA shithole. Long overdue
The good ole Nana vs. Towel Boy feud.
I never would’ve imagined Nana would be the one managing a budding AEW main eventer and Stokely the one stuck in ROH. Good for Nana tho, he probably went from per appearance checks to a nice guaranteed deal
I like Stoke, they had him way too goofy. Did nothing to elevate all those people in his stable and became the focus. Don't blame them resetting him to ROH.
I think he could be a good manager with the right people.
Nana is just great though.
Goofy is kinda what Stokely is though.
Well after 75 tweets this dumbass finally decided to announce the time for the selection special
Haven't watch lately. I liked Stokely better than Nana. Loved hos social media posts that were in here.
Never understood Nana. He never said anything and just did that stupid dance. Never heard about his stupid headware or why his has a grandmother's name.
I don’t know how many people still regularly watch family guy but I’m sure Tony is sweating it.
TIL they were still making new episodes of Family Guy.
Looks like it's a dying show. Not surprising they are moving it off their covered 8-10 block on Sunday nights. Surprised to read it got renewed for next year. Animation is expensive content.
The season finale last year apparently drew less viewers than a typical Dynamite episode at only 760K. The season premiere this season only drew 1.06.
7 of the last 8 episodes from last year drew under a million and a few of those drew a worse demo than what Dynamite is drawning now
According to the below link they are averaging just a 0.33 demo and 1.046 million for the season.
So far this year 3 of the 6 episodes are under a million with 4 of the 6 getting a typical Dynamite demo. One episode only drew 779K viewers
They need to rename Nick Wayne to Nick Cage
This New Japan guy is crazy fast running the ropes, Jesus.
Well Giulia just buried Stardom leadership
Jey woke up angry.
Quit trying to make Daniel Garcia happen, TK.
It's not going to happen.
He's a midcarder/tag team guy. That's his ceiling.
Pretty good field, surprised at no Miro or Takeashita but otherwise there’s only really one guy in there who will be the clear jobber of the tournament.
so many awesome matches. I’m really excited for this
This is going to be so good. TK not fucking around with this tournament. The floor for match quality in this thing should be like a 7 out of 10.
Great opportunity for Daniel Garcia. He'll be the designated pin eater in his group, but he'll probably end up with a spoiler win in his last match to give him some momentum after looking good in four straight Ls.
I suppose Jay Lethal will be the designated pin eater in his group. I mean that's what he's been most of his AEW career anyway.
So who is everyone picking to win the thing?
If it wasn’t to unify some secondary titles I’d say it should be swerve vs Danielson with swerve winning. With the titles in mind a final of Eddie vs Mox with either winning is a compelling story
I just wonder how they'll book the Worls Ends PPV. Only two are going to advance to the finals at the PPV, are they going to have all of these other 10 not getting a PPV match?
Becuase leaving off some of these guys from a PPV would be bad. Like you can argue at least three (I'd argue 4) out of every group should be regularly featured on PPVs
That's a lot of really good talent to keep off the PPV if you don't manage to interweave some sort of story for them to get them a PPV match. Unless TK just books random PPV matches, but that would not be ideal.
False. DG is great. Just get him away from those 2point0 jobbers.
Dude is a really good wrestler.
Getting destroyed last Friday didn't teach TK anything huh
Or, hear me out, nobody really cares about ratings in 2023. The tribalism is funny, but look around the thread and you’ll see all the buzz is with AEW. Now, if they don’t deliver on the devil they’ll get so much shit. But Survivor Series is Saturday, Orton is coming back, and nobody is talking about it. I fully expect WWE to put their best foot forward in January, but they’re running in mud right now.
TK doesn't get to pick the night the show airs, dumbass.
How the hell is this guy not signed to a tv wrestling company yet if he can create compelling content like this?
I do love Daddy Ass but I agree with ya.
They need to shoot Angelo Parker into the sun and just make Daddy Magic his manager
I used to think he just wasn’t given a chance, but I agree. Daddy Magic needs to talk all the time. Color or as a manager.
Dean Ambrose beats Daniel Bryan. Rusev and Aleister Black have an elimination fight the next week on Dynamite to face Ambrose. Winner faces Dolph Ziggler on his first night in the Collision Zone.
There’s no buzz for either promotion right now. They’ve both stagnated in the fall.
The buzz on message boards about aew is because message board posters and observer readers are the aew fanbase. AEW is completely dead to anyone not already in that fanbase. Attendance numbers and tv ratings will tell you that.
And again there is nothing wrong with Tony focusing on just that audience if that's his goal and everyone is getting paid and happy. But they are dead to everyone not already in that group.
Judging what’s buzzing in wrestling based off TMB message board activity is a poor decision.
One company is giving away 2 for 1 tickets. The other just sold more tickets to Survivor Series than it did for Wrestlemania in the very same stadium.
Every metric suggest that your take is awful.
