No word yet on if Riho is signing full time, she's only on a contract for 5 PPV's and she sees if America and AEW suits her. Yuka, no word if she's full time as she's in the semi final of TJPW version of the New Japan Cup and they would have announced by now if she was going full time. So neither of them are for sure full time roster members yet.

Shida is the only one.

Remember theirs the Joshi division that's happening too, so it's going to be apart from the women's division I assume. That's why I placed them apart.
Who said anything about a separate joshi division wtf lol that would make no sense. Also I read that Riho is on board full-time post-DON and she's moving to the US and Yuka absolutely loved DON and she seems fully on board.

God forbid a place isn't a circle-jerk 24/7. I've noticed a pretty childish response to any criticism AEW have gotten since Fyter Fest. Not just towards obvious trolls like Phee either. Apparently you can't have any issues without being a WWE shill in disguise or something. I have faith in AEW going forward. Doesn't mean there aren't any flaws or concerns to point out.
I think it’s a matter of how people come across. There seems to be a lot of ‘bad shit on the pre-show means the whole thing sucks’. Whether people mean it or not, they come across like one misstep and the whole company is already in the shitter, made worse by a lot of them tending to confuse stuff they don’t like with missteps. Get over it, people, not everything they do is gonna be a hit with everybody.

The Fyter Fest pre-show took a lot of chances. All the backstage segments were spoofing Fyre Festival, which a lot of people didn’t get (myself included). A LOT of stuff throughout the whole show that many of us are calling silly were pokes at the gaming convention and gaming geeks. It was all especially riskier because it was only their second show.

I understand why some people are down on the company, fearing that that second show might be indicative of how all their shows will be. Like any good developing story line, people need to sit back and let it all play out. These guys have been pretty clever as far as a lot of what they’re doing is part of both short- and long-term story and character development. People just need to be patient and see where it’s all going.

And ffs it’s just wrestling, kids, let’s not take it all so seriously.

*just responding to the last part of your message.
Yep, maybe it will fail or maybe just maybe they will indeed catch some part of the videogame community. I mean I stopped playing expert when I was sperging everywhere how All out wouldn't sell out fast because this and that and they didnt advertised it correctly. And I was fundamentally wrong. So I decided that maybe those guys arent dumb and know what they are doing when it comes to business. As for the fyre fest/fyter fest thing, you just have to read one wikipedia line and you can understand most jokes. Like kenny running everywhere in the preshow, the tent, and all of that.
As for the videogame thing, I mean....all the promos of the show were on manga/geek/videogames.....even if you dont know it rings some bells. Also the fact that there was CEO written pretty much everywhere lol

Ooh Brandi….

Fucking ninja onions.
what happened? I skipped that part lol. The rest of the video was top notch tho.
The buy in preshow is gonna be an absolute train wreck of a match fuck.
Also mjf is sooo soooooo soooooo gonna stab spears in the back it's not even funny <img src="http://i.imgur.com/EGDmCdR.gif?1?6573" border="0" alt="" title="Laugh" class="inlineimg" />
I guess the next episode will be where we see the young bucks and rhodes brothers. This one felt like a recap of fyter fest.

Great.... now I care about a f’kn Brandi match of all people >:-(

:D

And yeah - no way that pre-show match goes off without a hitch

Allin, Havoc, Janela all on the same side? They’re gonna kill each other

Ditto for MJF / spears

The Fyter Fest recap was really cool to see. Really showed how much of a good event it was, even with the slight cons.

I could do without the political pandering from this video. Shouldn't have gone longer than it did.

Loved the video, regardless. Spears is really coming off as a devious bastard. They are going to milk that chairshot for all that it is worth and they should. Controversy creates cash. Also Allin/Janela/Havoc v. Spears/MJF/Guevara should be a fun pre-show match. It'll be interesting to see how MJF and Spears co-exist, if they even do at all, judging by the video.

I liked the Brandi perspective on this video as well. AEW has done a fabulous job of using these video perspectives and getting the characters of their talent over. Now you know why Brandi wants to wrestle and why she has to not give up. Granted, I don't need to see Brandi wrestle but now I can be more sympathetic as to why.

Overall, a good Road To once again.

I skipped the brandi part because I thought it would sucm....but people say it's good and now the video is deleted.

The amount of swearing between shawn spears and mjf was off the chart, and somehow beeping it makes it even cooler for some reason:lol

The Brandi part was really good. Came off very natural and sympathetic. As much as I don't need to see her wrestle, it's hard not to support her in her match with Allie now when she talks about overthinking things and disappointing her close family. It's those type of videos that build emotional investment into characters as a viewer. This type of element they need to bring over to the TNT show, IMO.

The small bit between Spears and MJF was great because it came off as natural with their swearing. It didn't come off as forced or unnatural. That's how two angry men would interact with each other.

the shawn spear/mjf was basically "********* you *********" "yeah and you *******" for some reason beeping the swearing makes it even edgier because it reinforce the "breaking the rule" side of the thing.
Also crap, I didnt watch the brandi part. I am unlucky as hell. Yeah I think that's what they will bring us on TNT, that's what tony khan said too.
You know the Rhodes vs young bucks + jericho video is gonna be one memorable shit tho.

Wait, did I miss something? Did they release a new "Road To" video? I'm not seeing it on Youtube.
They removed it shortly after

No news on why - if they post it again and there is anything different, i will post it here
