Exactly if that match was in WWE. It would have been some 3 to 5 minute match tossed in middle or Raw or Smackdown with Ambrose getting easy win.


I think that's the fun part of two different companies competing against each other. Guys can be jobbers or mid card guys in one company. Then go to another company and get new character be way better. Let's not forget Undertaker, Razor Ramon, Diesel and Triple H. Where nobodies in WCW until WWE turned them into stars. Even Stunning Steve and Cactus Jack were mid card guys in WCW. Yet they were two guys who had major impact in WWE winning Monday Night Wars against WCW.


After Double or Nothing people on this forum wanted them to sign Spears and I was like nahh. Why would they want WWE cast off who boring babyface who just says 10. Now I'm big fan of Spears and heel character AEW created with him. All of the sudden I realized he has a good look and does good promos. It's great to see AEW without even having tv yet. Make me excited for a Moxley/Spears match. When six months ago Ambrose/Dillenger would have been some throw away match I didn't care about.

Yeah i was exactly the same.The guy was shit in wwe but i think every single person on the roster is shit. AJ styles is shit.The entire direction of wwe is so weird now that they no longer can create excitement. So i was like this dorky guy is coming to AEW ? But i guess Cody saw the talent.


But again its hard to tell whos good and whos bad in wwe when the company makes everyone lame as fuck. AEW managed to get me hyped for Spears in only one 4 minute video.Though i will say he is not super exciting as a talker and that is fine. Back in the day lots of great wrestlers did not have the promo skills and thats when managers was huge.

I think the era of managers is coming back for sure and that guy with him is GOLD

Re: AEW Discussion Thread

I'm fine with Spears/Mox. If this was WWE, this would have been the second match of a normal RAW where it goes four minutes and Ambrose gets the decisive win without any purpose or direction. However, with the way AEW has built Spears and given him new life, I am curious to see how he'll fare with Mox, who I assume will beat Omega at All Out like I think Spears will win against Cody. Whoever wins this match would be an instant contender to the AEW World title as well.

Re: AEW Discussion Thread

Feel like they could have quite easily built Mox/Spears on their next PPV and built up both Mox and Spears win records with wins over lesser competitors on television.

But I guess Moxley will likely be up against whoever the champion is at their next PPV event in November and this'd be a good way to keep up momentum. UNLESS of course Spears and his stable, which could be identified at this time, end up beating Moxley or making it a no contest to really build up Spears some more.

Re: AEW Discussion Thread



Going to be harder to be announcing matches so far out that are meant to sell tickets. Especially if they don't want Jericho wrestling too often. Seems like it would be another Cody match announcement here if Mox/Spears is the week earlier in Boston. Can't even announce Penta/Fenix match because if they're not in the tournament it means they're the AAA tag Champs. Can't announce a Hangman singles match as he could be champion.

Just got to start announcing who will be there.

Re: AEW Discussion Thread

Has Kenny had a singles match tv announcement yet?

If not, then him v Pentagon will be a major match without spoilers

Or v Fenix

My NEW FREE game Pop The Cork is now available on Android

It is the BETA version, so please let me know what you think! Thanks!!

Won't be vs Fenix as they set up Omega vs Fenix for AAA Mega Title in Mexico some time in the future at Triplemania.

You're right about an Omega match though. Penta would be giving away something too big I think. Omega vs MJF or Allin or something I could see. Along with a tag tournament match like SCU vs Evans/Angelico.

Re: AEW Discussion Thread

You’re right about Penta + Fenix

They might also be part of the tournament still that night

Kenny vs a young gun would be good as you say - MJF, Allin, Havok - or I kinda want to see Kip v Kenny for some reason

Not that any of those will be a ‘major’ announcement

Kenny v Cody?

A lot of WWE guys do, pretty sure Orton follows them on Twitter.

Re: AEW Discussion Thread

AEW has become almost like the No Mans Sky of pro wrestling

Despite what you may have heard about so-called "smark marks" and the "IWC" some of us are actually here to help. All you have to do is ask.
