Re: Did You Know: Adam Page...

I vaguely remember him trying to hang (well, strangle really) people with a noose when he joined the Bullet Club, but they dropped that very quickly (not the crappy nickname though).

Re: Cero Reviews AEW Full Gear 2020

AK-47 however, the more I see of her, the less I like her wrestling. I used to love the Midwest Militia AK, even Impact's Sienna, but I wasn't a fan of her here, she looked slow. I might be talking out of my ass here (I know, shocking), but Kay always seems to have attitude issues from the multiple...

Re: BRM Reviews the 10/28/2020 Dynamite (very bad)

I wasn't sure and frankly, it's kinda hard to give a kayfabe answer that isn't the actual one. "They're lazy, care more about themselves and don't use the tools they've created (like those silly rankings) to create money matches" applies to both kayfabe and shoot, although you can flesh that one out...

Re: BRM Reviews the 10/28/2020 Dynamite (very bad)

So why do the women have to wait months for the f*cking #1 contender to get her title match booked? So what’s going on here? Is Tony Khan a sexist? Well, the women's division is filled with subpar talent (and I'm being generous) and booked by Kenny l'artiste, so... I'm sure this is gonna sound sill...

Re: BRM Reviews the 10/21/2020 Dynamite

i disagree, they know exactly what they're doing, they just don't give a crap about pandering to the 'serious' wrestling fan or the cult of cornette They know how to cater to their existing fans who will lap up everything they do, yes. The issue is that it doesn't attract anyone else apparently. Fo...

Re: BRM Reviews the 10/21/2020 Dynamite

This is basically why people like Cornette have been bitching about since the beginning : AEW has/had? this golden oportunity to create something new to counter WWE, but it's never going to happen because those in charge can't be serious and/or don't know what they're doing. Pretty much everything t...

Re: BRM Reviews the 10/1/2020 Dynamite

Cody the non-binary wrestler cut another ridiculously pompous promo to hear himself talk for a while. For a guy who's been trying to be his own man since he left WWE, he sure is becoming some weird Dusty tribute character mixed with modern stupid bullshit. Can't wait for his next totally original pr...

Re: BRM Reviews AEW Late Night Dynamite

I guess, but they've reached a point where they have way too many of those and very few jobbers/enhancement talent, and almost all of them are stuck on the Youtube show that only a small fraction of the TV audience is watching.

Re: BRM Reviews AEW Late Night Dynamite

BEN CARTER vs. SCORPIO SKY- 7/10 We couldn’t even get to the end of the second wrestlers’ entrance before Jericho was in full over the top clown mode on commentary. This was a great debut for Carter that gave him instant credibility… but that’s not what AEW needs. They don’t even have room for the ...

Re: Mike Rotunda, Sarah Stock released by WWE

The reality is that MAYBE 5 are necessary. Actually, if I remember Gabe correctly from his first Guest Booker appearance, 90% of the job is pointless. Having someone around who can help with finishing sequences a la the way Johnny Ace or Pat Patterson have been described is helpful, but otherwise, ...

Re: Cero Reviews AEW ALL OUT 2020

I thought it was a bad decision to move the Baker match to the main show, and even so, it was a bad idea to start the show with it, I thought about it and maybe putting that match in between the DO match and the FTR match would had woken me up. That match really shouldn't have happened at all frank...

Probably putting the tooth & nail "match" on the main card because the woke Twitter crowd bitched (as usual) about this women's match being on the pre-show and Khan caved.

AEW World Tag Team Championship Match F.T.R. (w/Tully Blanchard) vs Kenny Omega & "Hangman" Adam Page (C) - 6/10 I personally found this to be a really boring fantastically wrestled match. I don't know if the previous match was so long that it took me out of it and once this started my head was som...

Re: BRM Reviews the 9/2/2020 Dynamite (terrible)

Someone on 411mania or Scott Keith's blog made a good point about how none of the current programs feels serious and/or like a big main event program. The closest they've got is the whole Elite/Page/Revival stuff, but has been made confusing because the protagonists have mood swings every two second...

Re: BRM Reviews the 8/27/2020 Dynamite (a stark illustration of why they won't succeed)

"Too many cooks" is part of the problem, but it's becoming increasingly clear that the biggest one is two wrestling philosophies clashing and not working at all together. On one hand, you have the Bucks and Omega with the goofy shit, then you have Cody on the other with the more serious rasslin' (an...

I'm surprised you didn't call this one "The day AEW became TNA 2.0". Anyway, Tully changed allegiance out of nowhere and is now the Revival's manager. Yes, that is an upgrade for all parties involved (except Spears, but who cares about him really?), but this is once again a pairing with no build-up ...

Brandi might legitimately be the worst thing about AEW, and that's quite the feat considering you have horrors like the Dark Order and Marko Stunt.

Re: BRM Reviews the 8/12/2020 AEW (extremely frustrating)

I'd argue that MJF is their "homegrown" star. His biggest gigs to date were things like MLW. This is his first international promotion gig and he's growing in that role. But besides him, you're right. Eh, I see your point, but MJF already had about two years of TV exposure/experience when he came i...

That was a nice dumpster fire apparently. I’m starting to think that Thelone was right when he/she/they posited that Archer was brought in with absolutely no plans for him in place past losing to Cody. First of all, I'm a guy, so that's "he". More importantly, Archer isn't the only one in that situa...
