He's fine for a midcard guy, I guess.
I think he is a good midcard, lower midcard. not the guy I see as a world champ or even winning your secondary title. but you can't have a roster full of Kenny Omega either

Re: Road to Fyter Fest Series

Spears could have done without the chains breaking stuff. It's not like he is a guy held back/handcuffed by the WWE/Machine. That's not his story. His "Did I make the right decision?" was enough of an angle for him in the promo. He should have went "I traded comfort for a shot at glory" route.

Also I get the feeling they're setting up Rhodes vs Spears with Cody's remarks of Spears "being a good hand, a player-coach, and good for the young guys to wrestle". I suspect Spears will take offense to that and claim he is here for more than that and he is good enough and we'll get Rhodes vs Spears at All Out.

Darby Allin's was really well done - kid is going to be a star. I don't know why WWE didn't swallow him up into their developmental. He always would wrestle the NXT talent they sent to Evolve shows - so they trusted him enough in the ring in that regard. He is on the smaller side, but he wrestles as the underdog willing to take a shitkicking to get his shot in.

One complaint I have is the back-to-back Spears and Allin promos - maybe one should have been saved for the next installment - they had the same basic feel.

I have to agree with Janela going too shooty with the behind the curtain references. AEW needs to draw a hard line against that exposing the business stuff on storyline. They can champion that in other media to explain why they are different/better, but on storyline/kayfabe that needs to be left out. Just sell the match as Janela is Moxley before Moxley sold out. The deathmatch kid willing to bleed and self-harm in front of dozens for a shot at fame. He should go on about how might not be big enough or strong enough but he is crazy enough. If he can't be famous, he'll be infamous - or die trying.

Cant believe how good that Janela promo was and how they went into Darby to explain who and what hes about. This is the ultimate promo push, the ultimate way to do things. May we please get this stuff on TNT. Wow.

A guy taken off television because his chant got over and became a huge part of an entire show because every match, people would scream "TEN!". Seems like a bring your dog to work and leave him outside on a leash type of deal to me.

Interesting. I wonder when they'll announce the state of the women's title as well.

Spears gave me Paul Walker vibes in that vid, I liked it.

he praised wwe heavily on his last interview and said they released him voluntarily because they knew he would go to aew and they worked the schedule to release him at the right time so he could do aew stuff and he thanks them because they have been merciful to him.
what if it's not a shot or even about wwe? not everything is an wwe shot
i remmener people saying the dog in Moxley's video was roman and shit like that but the man himself came and said it was not and actually laughed , same for the prison thing, he said ( if I remember) that it was a cool thing.
maybe the fans ourselves with see "shots" and "wwe" references everywhere too?. I don't know

Re: Road to Fyter Fest Series

That Darby Allin promo was so fucking good. The Shawn Spears one was great as well. The Janela one was the weakest of the 3 but it was still fairly solid. The production on all 3 of them were awesome, i love the way they do their promo videos.

But these three promos still by far exceed that other wrestling promotions they need to take notes this how you do promos. I like how the character development is being established and how we learn more about these people instead of them just being random wrestlers. Some of us here may find it a little bit of annoying, but I don't mind if AEW on TNT reminds us about these characters because there's going to be a lot of new viewers who don't know about them.
