Re: Kenny Omega reportedly set for significant time off, possible surgery

I think we're learning that a lot of the key players in AEW are people who are at their best when not left to their own devices. 100%, sadly the bucks are still about doing their same match every time bullshit, the sooner Adam Cole gets away from them the better and there are other ridiculous eleme...

Re: Kenny Omega reportedly set for significant time off, possible surgery

At the risk of sounding like Jim Cornette, thank god. Fact is, at this point, whilst I'm not his biggest fan in terms of ring-work, and I just don't get the hype around him... His AEW run has ultimately become stale and this is a good opportunity for him to go away, and maybe come back to try someth...

Re: Okay... Peacock Officially Sucks

They're bringing Peacock to the UK. . . which unfortunately means we're also going to be losing the WWE Network and having it replaced with a clunky shit downgrade

Re: Jerome Young, New Jack, Passes Away at 58

The most controversial wrestler of all time? Most likely. Remember his Smokey Mountain OJ Simpson "Keep up the good work" promo? Shiiiit, that's still controversial today. Or the time he admitted to trying to murder Vic Grimes during a scaffold match? But the dude was an absolutely specia...

Re: Jerome Young, New Jack, Passes Away at 58

I honestly always hated New Jack for the same reasons he was such a huge name in wrestling. Talk about blurring the lines and then straight up stabbing a dude in the ring. It was so weird because I hated the person, but you heard his theme play and there's no other reaction other than straight up h...

Re: BRM Reviews the 4/7/2021 Dynamite (bad, with a terrible ending)

WWE spent $2 Million on Mike Tyson at the pinnacle of his career and helped make Stone Cold the most over wrestler in the world because of how they presented him. AEW has spent similar sums on a Mike Tyson who has fallen asleep at ringside in his first appearance and lost to NXT in ratings on his se...

Re: WWE Raw Rating: Lowest rating in months, but smallest dropoff during show since last fall, plus other key demos

Peacock isn’t really international though. It’s still WWE Network for UK and many other parts! that's what I'm saying, the only numbers left in the network are international ones and those don't matter. i don't even know if peacock numbers can be accurately counted. They’ll get streaming numbers an...

Re: WWE Raw Rating: Lowest rating in months, but smallest dropoff during show since last fall, plus other key demos

Where's the motivation? They don't need to draw for PPV's anymore, because they're all part of a subscription. Therefore they don't need to create stars with which to draw PPVs, there isn't particularly much need in terms of ratings anymore. There's no motivation at all to do anything. They've made...

Can’t argue with any of that.

This is why you don't put stuff like board games, choo-choo noises and give people a feud based around one of the authority figures in the company repeatedly calling one of their talents "dumb". it goes faaar beyond that. so so far, wwe has always done dumb stuff like board games and anno...

Re: BRM Reviews the 3/24/2021 Dynamite (THIS is the Kenny Omega that AEW needs!)

But that aside, pretty decent show. I don’t think the Omega stuff is interesting at this time, I’m not caring where the he and Young Bucks thing is going and he just needs to pick a feud and stick with it. In the last few weeks he’s had face offs or issues with The Bucks, Moxley, Kingston, Sydal an...

Things I’ve learned AEW does well: - Building the card the first the next show, on the current show. They’ve learned how to do this pretty well, instead of WWE’s “nothing is booked, everything gets booked for later tonight” situation. It makes for a more professional feel.

Re: Kane and The Great Khali to be inducted into WWE Hall of Fame

Kane clearly deserves it. 20 something years of service, massive storylines, world titles reigns.

Khali is a head scratcher. I can safely say I don’t remember any singular Khali match or storyline, they’re all forgettable.
