When were they ever comparable? One is an all time great and the other is a fake draw in Vince's brain-dead mind.Oh and cant remember which thread it was comparing Brock vs Jericho. Go watch Jericho's promo at the beginning of the show to see why Jericho>>>>>>>>>>Brock. Absolutely zero comparison.
The bucks were so impressive. Easy to forget they are the one of the best at the moment.Wow I’ve been pretty critical (yet optimistic) of AEW and I’ve gotta say that’s the best wrestling tv show I’ve seen in God knows how long.
I enjoyed everything and couldn’t find anything to skip.
Best Bucks match I’ve ever seen, hopefully they tone down spots and have more matches like this. The extended celebration after the match made the win feel more special as well.
I’m really liking how everything is happening in the ring or ringside, makes it feel more real like a proper wrestling show would be like.
I’m obsessed with Jericho so loved his promo, best ever is a stretch though. He had superior stuff in 08. Some of it was too insider for me but it was excellent and set an awesome tone for AEW and his group.
I wasn’t sure why those two guys were getting a contendership match. On that note, my one complaint with the matches has been that it’s been very “comebacky”. If wrestling were real there’d be more squash matches, and just ordinary twelve minute matches where the guy whose done the most offence wins the match. I would like them to train fans to expect that more often so that comebacks can feel special again.
The women’s match was really good. That other Japanese woman was amazing, would love to see more of her.
The main event was cool. I’ve liked how the eps have ended in a bit of mayhem and has felt pretty fluid. The storylines feel dynamic and they all exist within the same world.
The MJF part was brilliant, the cocky heel being overwhelmed by the baby face support and losing sight of Jericho was hilarious. Added a bit of depth to MJF too, like deep down he really wants to be loved by the fans for how great he is.
Surely you can’t have MJF turn at the PPV. There’s so much more mileage to be had out of this. Would make more sense if MJF tries to help Cody but the Inner Circle just outnumber him. They need to build up the effectiveness of the inner circle as well as the MJF/Cody friendship.
I don’t want to raise my hopes too much, but I genuinely thought that was fantastic and it’s really exciting to look forward to weekly wrestling again.
I legit thought they Bucks Private party match was going to end in a draw.The bucks were so impressive. Easy to forget they are the one of the best at the moment.
Agree with what you are saying around the similarity of the matches. Over time I hope they throw in the odd one-sided match as well as time limit draws. I think to begin with it’s important to build the characters to give them the chance to shine though
So that's probably the par now for AEW. Imagine the difference in week one was the E fans having a look. Now to hold what they have and try and chip away at some. Good thing is a lot will probably watch a replay and it was the better show this week.AEW got 1mil, NXT 800k this week.
500k people jumped off the Weds night wars this week.
Well WWE and even WCW ratings back in the day usually drop off between September to January due to the NFL then the viewers come back or grow in February.Both drops were predicted due to playoff baseball.
The AEW shill (Dave 'Plans changed') expected a big drop off for NXT. Wrong again.
They need to build to a Wargames match at some point.
well Impact wrestling had a similar wrestling wargames match called lockdown. They were very good matches. they only had one ring compared to Wargames 2 rings.
Is AEW overdoing the 'Hardcore'/Non-sanctioned matches though?Apparently the Janella vs Omega match was off the chain. AEW dark could go close to a mill YouTube views next week. Currently sitting around 650k for last week
