Yes I watched I was in the live thread and no rules weren't actually being enforced. I mean hell if they were being enforced more than one match would've ended in a count out.

Too little too late for a lot of people. You also had a ref randomly stop counting in a match, bullshit Orange Cassidy interference and no countouts.

What? Do you watch NJPW? The refs are blithering idiots. Every now and then Red Shoes acts like he has a functioning brain, but thats about it.

Good. Ref bumps are overused.

I mean, I agree with the referees having personalities.

But, in terms of them not being dumb? I mean, are gonna act like we didn't just see the PAC vs. Trent match where Chuck had the referee distracted for like a full minute just jumping around so Orange Cassidy can do his sthick? Or in the 1st episode where we saw the referee see Jon Moxley interfere and punch a guy right in the face and no bell was rung.

And NJPW? NJPW refs are the most easiy distracted referees in the game. We see constant faction interference in every match because of their incompetence.

I do like Aubrey Edwards and even Rick Knox is entertaining is own quirky way. But I would not put them on a higher level than other referees.

It's very refreshing to not see them in AEW. Ref bumps in general have grown kind of stale.
