Is that Reso, White or Lethal?
"Let's go Jay... Jay sucks".
Almost more Jay's than Adam's... So should be future fodder for Roddy Strong.
Montreal crowd was in fine form as per usual.
Ugh, it must be school holidays in Japan!
Speaking of the women, did I see yet another ref count to 3...
I don't know if it's HBK by himself or he has a whole lot of unnamed help, but the booking of NXT is sometimes next level despite the overall talent level. It's especially great when they are setting up their PLE's - like today's episode.
The reference to "new" is only in the article by the website writers... Khan's wording is: Tony Khan hyped that AEW "has agreed to terms with one of the world's best wrestlers."

It should probably be for the World Title.
Both should be on a winning run right now.
Surely Christian's title reign ultimately continues.
Swerve vs Christian seems too...
I'd agree with that for the most part. I don't think Starks vs Yuta should have been on this ppv card - although Moxley amazingly stating it was finally Yuta's 1st singles ppv match may have been the reason.
I don't have much of an issue with The Bucks overall - although (presuming FTR was...
