Re: BRM Reviews the 1/20/2021 Dynamite (Bad. Again.)

Abandoning it would have been the right move. Yeah, that's pretty much it. The Dark Order has been trash since day 1 and almost seems like a curse at this point. Wasn't Scurll supposed to be the Exalted One at first (career most likely done after the whole abuse/sex scandal thing), then Hardy (almo...

Re: BRM Reviews the 1/20/2021 Dynamite (Bad. Again.)

Honouring him with one moment to take away is cute, putting him in the payroll to support the family? That’s classy from Khan. But this continued use is bad. Like, just getting unwatchable. The way they did it is pretty bad I would say. AEW could have said something along the lines of "We'll d...

Re: BRM Reviews the 1/20/2021 Dynamite (Bad. Again.)

-1’S BIRTHDAY PARTY- horrible This is exploitative. We're slowly but surely seeing the true colors and carny nature of Tony Khan. Whatever he's doing now on Impact is what Vince did in the early 90s in Memphis (basically being Mr. McMahon way before Austin), he flat out admited that he's been signi...

TONY SCHIAVONE INTERVIEWS STING- bad The last time he spoke, he said he wasn’t here because of Cody, but now he’s saying that he came to AEW because Cody was involved. Which one is it? Cody is just doing the whole "when X isn't here, everyone should ask what he's up to" that people compla...

Re: Legends Night set for first WWE Raw of 2021

Re: BRM Reviews the 12/16/2020 Dynamite (dull)

I guess you can put Cody in there somewhere depending on his mood, but that seems about right. Clearly, the end goal is for Page to shake off being a drunk loser and proving his old tag partner that he's better than him, but just like Moxley, Omega's reign will be filled with nothing title matches u...

Re: BRM Reviews the 12/16/2020 Dynamite (dull)

That sure was a way to follow a big show with a bunch of inconsequential tags and the new top guy fighting a jobber in the main event. For what might well be the first time since the tournament happened back in AUGUST, Ivelisse & Diamante winning the women’s tag team tournament was mentioned. Th...

Another week, another episode of the "Rhodes family rubs shoulders with celebrities and legends". Watch Taz' group flounder into nothingness because they're seemingly done with Daddeh's Boy now, try to awkwardly slot Brandi "I'm not Stephanie McMahon" Rhodes in storylines, and ea...

Re: BRM Reviews the 12/2/2020 Dynamite (Winter is Coming)... you're going to want to avoid spoilers for this one!

GM Sting is a terrible idea, we've seen it before. I for one like what they do with all their old people, but it's Sting that makes me wonder the most, he shouldn't be a manager or second to anyone having a match. I'm not saying it's a good idea, but what can you really do with him at this point? Y...

Not sure what to think of Sting coming in. If they brought him in to fill the GM role à la Regal in NXT, then it's fine. If not, I'm not sure what he can bring to the table. AEW is pretty bad at using legends/managers effectively, but we'll see I guess. Anyway, back to bitching uncontrollably. Am I ...

Re: BRM Reviews the 11/25/2020 Dynamite

The sad thing is that Tony Khan is most likely the "editor", but isn't doing anything because he actually loves the silly shit himself and doesn't want to upset the boys by overruling them, no matter how self-indulgent/stupid a storyline/angle/whatever can be. This is pretty clear with Cod...

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).

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 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 th...

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...

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.

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.

Cody the non-binary wrestler cut another ridiculously pompous promo to hear himself talk for a while.

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.
