Re: BRM Reviews the 9/21/2022 Dynamite (Grand Slam 2022)

Moxley winning is the right call for business. I'm no Moxley fan, but he cut a hell of a promo and having a babyface champion who is as over as Moxley is the right call to have made. In these circumstances, it's just right. Jericho winning the ROH belt only makes sense if like Cero said, it is used ...

Re: All Out Post-Show Discussion Thread

But on the Hobbs exclusion, I’d have Hobbs do something really heinous to Starks like attack him backstage and then have Starks cost Hobbs that match somehow even just a distraction. Starks is visibly smaller, he’d have been wronged and therefore more underdog and fans will enjoy it and accept it. ...

Re: All Out Post-Show Discussion Thread

I'm willing to excuse the title tournament entrants due to the combination of the circumstances around it and the fact that there is a theme with the entrants which makes sense, and everyone involved is the best fit with that theme. Tony did a good job with that. Otherwise, you wind up in a positio...

Re: All Out Post-Show Discussion Thread

The reason we don't get the promised "sports-like presentation" is because... well... I think Tony's an idiot and in his mind that meant "we'll keep records, and have rankings!," where as the rest of us heard that and actually expected those things to matter and be done in a log...

Re: All Out Post-Show Discussion Thread

The same goes for all of The Elite... The more stories that are coming out just go to show that love him or hate him, Jim Cornette has been right about the Bucks and Omega. I mean, I never thought any of the Elite guys were likeable (Cody included), but at least Page had the benefit of the doubt si...

Re: All Out Post-Show Discussion Thread

The more Adam Page talks, the less likeable he becomes. He somehow manages to come off as both a complete pushover/"just happy to be here" kind of guy and also entitled despite how little he has accomplished during his 14-year career so far. The same goes for all of The Elite... The more ...

Re: All Out Post-Show Discussion Thread

You're absolutely correct... but if you're Tony Khan and you can find someone who will cause less inherent friction/be more acceptable to most people than JR, wouldn’t you do that? Why does it even need to be someone in wrestling? Also, with the particular examples you gave, I'll agree with you abo...

Re: All Out Post-Show Discussion Thread

I don't think Ross is a good fit for the job. There are already people in the company who I'm sure won't listen to him because they think his views on wrestling are too old-fashioned, and even though that shouldn't affect the advice he gives in an HR job, that's not how human brains work, and there...

Re: All Out Post-Show Discussion Thread

My opinion is that Tony Khan needs Jim Ross. JR is someone who has been head of talent relations in the biggest wrestling company in the world, in the biggest boom period at a time with the biggest egos and he helped made it work. If I was TK, I would be getting my chequebook out and saying to JR, ...

essentially with all this. It is not a work. I believe Tony has worked with MJF to make his shoot a worked shoot for sure, but this latest situation isn't. You don't make a bunch of people champions you know you're going to suspend days later. My opinion is that Tony Khan needs Jim Ross. JR is someo...

Re: Two more stars suffer injuries at All Out

I'm shocked nothing more has been said about this most recent Ruby Soho injury, considering how careless Sammy was with her, and she seems to be very close to the guy who just took a swing at Sammy. I think there's so much going on backstage that this may have gotten lost in the mire, but you are c...

Re: Two more stars suffer injuries at All Out

AEW have had one of the most significant injury lists in the last 12 months plus. Perhaps of all time. Never have so many wrestlers been out at once. I don't know about at once, but over the course of 2007 WWE had major injuries to Cena, Orton, Taker, Hunter, Edge, Lashley, and Mr. Kennedy (who had...

Re: Two more stars suffer injuries at All Out

Unsafe people? Yeah definitely. Bad luck? Maybe some. You can also add injury-prone guys like Samoa Joe, people over 40 in general who are more vulnerable to injuries, lack of ring practice (a light schedule is nice and all, but wrestling once every month will lead to ring rust and everything that ...

AEW have had one of the most significant injury lists in the last 12 months plus. Perhaps of all time. Never have so many wrestlers been out at once.

No way Moxley doesn't bleed first.
And the gentleman's wager is on. Loser has to watch AEW Dark Elevation on repeat for a month.
You better bleed first, Moxley. I'm too far behind on wXw to add this to my list.

Re: Jon Moxley & Nick Gage title vs. career match set for GCW Fight Club

So what do we think? Is Gage retiring, is Moxley losing the AEW belt at All Out, or is Tony willing to let his champion do a job in someone else's promotion to someone not under AEW contract? I’ll tell you what will happen. Gage will bleed, then Moxley will bleed. There’ll be a silly weapon like a ...
