WWE just keeps making a fool of themselves if I'm being honest. Their ratings are declining, attendance is declining, they wanna try and run a UK Takeover head-to-head with New Japan, and now they're deciding to stream an EVOLVE show against this? The desperation is showing and it's a bad look for them. EVOLVE has basically become NXT lite so it's just gonna be like watching one of those Worlds Collide shows or something anyway. :p

Anyways to the positives, I like them announcing that Jericho is gonna be there. The show is pretty much 70% sold out already so announcing him will likely push it to being totally sold out in no time. Will he be wrestling though? That's the biggest question I have. A tag match squaring off against Page & a partner would make sense but it really isn't even necessary. Maybe just a promo battle against him would be just fine that ends in a brawl.

Here's a point I don't think I've seen anyone make. They're about to (basically) sell out two shows two weeks apart that are only 90 minutes away from each other. That's very impressive for a start up company. How many people you think are going to both? I know if I lived in that area I'd be all over it.

Dont think they thought about this that far lol

cody and brandi run the company? My God:lol the bullshit you have to see on the internet. No, brandi is a brand officer and cody is an EVP, a simple EVP just like the bucks and omega. He doesnt have anymore power than him and Brandon's role is limited to the brand office. The dude running this shit is called Tony khan and already said he isnt here to watch the 4 evps ( cody the young buck Kenny) put themselves over if there isnt any clear good reason to it. If you think with the model they are going with, with 4 ppv a year, and a world title they want to push as this prestigious thing, they are going to make people pay 50$ to watch an inter gender match headline a ppv then get a clue.
Also good job predicting their thought process better than themselves, but so far both in character and in real life ( interviews, etc) brandi Rhodes has shown absolutely no desire to be recognized as a great wrestler. Doesnt mean she is gonna wrestle, but the only thing I ever saw her complain about was people not understanding what her job as....a brand officer is.
Information>>>speculations, sorry
I love when FANS act like they are part of the creative and know what's gonna happen.
If you think aew is gonna have an inter gender match headline a ppv and be the main event when they are going to have 4 ppv a year and are going to make people pay 50$ for it then you are as delusional yourself.
I know the common idea is that because wwe is utter shit it means everything else is gonna be but no. And no I dont see aew putting an inter gender match as the main event of a ppv EVER for the simple reason that they are going the old school way of the "men's world title always main event". Simple.
Also the women division being as important as the men's just mean they wont be a fucking joke. Simple and clear fam, just like the men the women are getting a women title and by what Khan said a women tag title in the future. The women division is gonna be built like the men's with the same competitively, and the same diversity in term of roster. ( joshi, American style, English strongstyle etc.
How do I know that? Because instead of sitting there speculating about things I listen to what they say and the explanation of what they say....provided by.....
Themselves
So as you can see I saw your posts and have been trying to figure out a way to respond to these without sounding like a pretentious condescending ass like you come off as in the two posts above me( Please Note: I am saying you come off as, not that you are personally this. Leave the unwarranted Offended and Rage Monster in their cave.) I am not interested in getting into a flame war with you. I was simple expressing my opinion which I am allowed to do, on what I feel has a good chance of occuring. I wasn't saying I knew more than creative like you accused me of doing. I wasn't reporting news from some dirtsheet. Just expressing my opinion.

In a bit of perfect timing, I assume( Is it okay to assume this?) you watched Road to FFF and you saw and heard the Brandi segment? It wasn't totally verbatim to what I expressed but it came off to me according to the gentleman talking that Brandi wasn't just concerned about being only the Chief Brand Officer for AEW. Would you agree?

I choose to take the respectful, diplomatic approach and I hope when you respond back to me you will do the same.:becky

Not looking forward to seeing Brandi wrestle. Nor should she, especially against someone like Allie (who is solid but isn't a Tessa or Asuka in that regard).

Loved Jake Roberts and Tony Schivonne hyping up the Rhodes v. Young Bucks match. Made it feel 100x as important as it originally did.

Typical WWE pulling classic petty moves because they're shook and panicking about the momentum AEW has at the moment. Hilarious.

I honestly don't care for any of the 3 matches announced thus far, so this episode of RTFFTF wasn't that appealing to me. Looking forward to what else they announce in the coming week or two.

I would say that they episodes will become more interesting as we get closer to that day and as you know things become really good as we get closer to All Out pay-per-view Bay Bay

If I had to guess Brandi won't be wrestling and instead Allie will get squashed by Awesome Kong

I don’t mind WWE for having a Takeover the same day as All Out, it won’t affect All Out, but if the competitiveness gives me more great wrestling, cool. That’s the competition I like.

But them airing Evolve live for the 1st time the same night as a charity show, even if in the end it won’t change anything is just being petty to be petty plus it’s just something that shouldn’t happen. There should be some things you don’t touch. I don’t mind th competition, the twitter wars, the backstabbing, etc. Thats business.

But again, some things should be off limits.

Don't think labelling it a charity show should make it off-limits for competition. The fact that it's a good cause doesn't take away from the fact that it's also for good publicity and for some social media attention to build popularity. As you said, that's business.

Cool Dad wrestling isn't something I need in my life, but if he brings the eyes so be it:mj2

That tag match is going to be incredible, I can FEEL IT. Jake hyping it was the best. Perfect use of legends.

NXTEVOLVE running the same night as this cool with me because once it fails to beat F4TF, HHH will kick the shit out of Gabe for being the worst, and I live for that shit.

Some die hard WWE fan's will say it was booked for that time, but overlook the fact that the two biggest matches on the card are with WWE signed talent.

As long as AEW puts on a top show, they will outshine them.

I said nothing disrespectful in my message but maybe I didnt notice.
Yes I watched toad to fight for the fallen, and my point still stands. Aew, a start up company is not gonna make people pay 50$ so they can watch a mixed tag team match as a main event. Not when they want their main title to be that important ( which virtually means it will always main event.
They can spit anything about brandi in that show, but she never came off as someone who is interested in proving herself as a big wrestler because she knows! She isnt on a top level. Remember when cody said he wants to kill the attitude era and all that ? Do you think it was actually something he thought or some bs line threw there to hype the show?
( also she is competing of course they are gonna say that, they work say "oh brandi doesnt care because she is crap to the others wrestlers.)
Now I genuinely think they are smart and self conscious enough not to do certain bullshit. The swerve at double or nothing to introduce aja Kong tells me they pretty much knows what Brandon's implication mean for fans.
Now if by any MIRACLE she has a "good" match with allie, then the matter can be discussed on another angle.
And again no bad faith in my messages, i come off as antagonistic when i argue with people that's all ?

Thank you for responding back in a civil manner. I appreciate that. You are a good poster and have strong feelings that I sometimes agree with and sometimes I don't, just like anybody else on here. I didn't want to start not liking you so I am glad that won't be the case.

Just to quickly comment about a Mixed Tag/ Intergender Tag match main eventing a PPV, I never specified what type of PPV it would be. I just said a PPV. Fyter Fest and FFF are PPV's right? Or is it because they are free that they are not? I assume their will be other shows like that throughout the year in addition to the 4 main $50 ones. Does that seem possible to you? Also I wasn't implying that Brandi and Cody would book themselves to go over, they could, but just that they would be involved in the angle.

As an aside, people reading will probably think, 'What the fuck? people being respectful and decent on social media? What the hell is this?

well problem is on the internet everyone is always mad and sometimes people might sounds annoyed when there is nothing wrong. I dont know if it's because I write using "fucking xxx" a lot but kope no hard feeling.
Still time will tell but I dont see them booking those kins of things not because they dont want to but because their error margin is very very veryyyyy thin.
Also brandi indeed has very interest in the whole wrestling thing, maybe she changed her view but last time I checked she didnt care that much lol

nah I had no intention of coming off as harsh and I do agree with him/her that the excessive use of certain words can come off as If I am not a polite person.
Fortunately it didnt end up being two people insulting each others. Negativity isnt something you want everywhere. Lol

Based on what JR was saying on commentary tonight, looks like we're gonna be seeing Hangman Page vs. Kip Sabian on this show.
Should be a good match to build Page's momentum even further. Kip 1-0 after DON, Page 2-0. Page being 3-0 with the best singles record is probably the goal here.

Absolutely agree. After seeing Allie last night (sloppy as hell) and Brandi on several other occasions (just generally awful), this match has stinker written all over it. Unless they are in fact gonna pull some kind of switcheroonie and put someone else in. But somebody needs to bite the bullet and tell Cody his wife has no business IN the ring.

On the other hand, Kenny vs CIMA has MOTY potential — I am really looking forward to that one.
