I'm hoping Jericho retains the title.

If Moxley shows up the arena will sell out. Guaranteed.

A month of television and already another $50 PPV? Not a fan of this. Are they going to spam PPV's every two months now? Their first weeks of television are so important that they should be giving away top matches rather than holding them back for PPV blow-offs. And back to the DC market already - what is that 5 weeks separation between AEWDC and Full Gear?

Then don't buy it. Pretty simple. Unless you're going to complain as usual.

Some are willing to pay the 50 dollars if the content being provided is of quality enough to be warranted that price. They're following the old UFC PPV model of big events being high-cost events while the other minor events will be obviously low in comparison.

CODY vs Cool Dad seems like the most logical main event, given the hints on the Road to shows. It'll probably suck, but at least it makes sense.

PAC vs Hangy will happen as well. I'm thinking PAC will take it so they can build him as a top heel, while slowly building Hangy.

:ambrose vs :eek:mega is a given. Gimmick match will be my guess.

Darby vs Havoc might happen as well. Could see Darby going after him because he didn't lose. Should be a killer match.

Bea vs Britt is a BUY IN opener, and that's ok with me.

Should be a fun show.

Someone brought it up in the 1st thread, but with this show on 11/9 and them having the tag finals on 10/30, not sure why they just didn't have the finals on this show. Could have even had it as the main event of the show.
Going by that and the predicted card, it could be Lucha Bros winning the tag titles from the Bucks in the finals, LAX attack them both again, sets the Triple Threat Tag title match at Full Gear.

There are probably other better ways to go about it, though.

Probably because this PPV date wasn't selected yet. And they needed to try and juice WV fan interest by giving the Finals to it's show.

You also have a title defense in Philly and the a few weeks later there likely will be another one in Baltimore.

Well, it's pretty much a given then. Moxley will be ready even for October.
Yeah New Japan announced today Moxley/Juice Robinson at King of Pro Wresting on October 14th. So Moxley must be recovering well. I wonder if Moxley will skip October 16th show despite being on promo photo. Or he could still be in Philly and not wrestle that week.

I think it's way too early to be predicting what the card is so far until the first week of television. There's undoubtedly going to be a surprise or two on the debut show, and a lot can happen from September to October. However, it will be nice to see what they can do with a PPV that has a months worth of TV to back it up, it's going to be quite a test.

Heel champions are NOT "always better," WWE these days is proof of that. As is NXT with Shayna's reign of terror. She's shown flashes of potential, but she looks REALLY green right now and nowhere near ready to be champion, let alone the first champion. Somewhere down the line, yeah perhaps, but right now Riho is the far better option out of the two.

Also if they're going to use the stupid "English" excuse, then they have no room to bash WWE because they'd be no better. Actually they'd be worse because at least WWE doesn't brag about using Joshi in a big way.

I think they will go with Nyla not because of English or anything but they would want to create their monster in the division. If they had the Awesome of 10 years or Aja of 20 years ago they would use one of them.
