re: AEW Discussion Thread II

A little thing I love so far are wrestlers talking into the camera, which they always did in WCW and I always thought it was great there. I have fond memories of Hollywood Hogan's rants to the camera after the NWO had beaten the crap out of someone, it kind of makes things feel more real, rather than them acting as if the camera's simply aren't there.

What are the odds on Cody hiring Cornette?

If AEW wants to focus on wrasslin he's the guy you want booking.

Hopefully zero. Cornette would book it like we're in 1985. He's not half as smart as he or his fans thinks he is.

re: AEW Discussion Thread II

I posted this in the DON thread but probably worth doing it in here.

My brother is as lapsed or as casual as they come, depending on how you want to define the words.

Literally the only person he knew of on that card last night was Chris Jericho. He didn't even know Dustin was Goldust until I told him. And he absolutely LOVED the fucking show. He loved seeing new moves he had never seen before, which tells me that there IS a place for the flippy stuff as long as it isn't all over the show. He loved how different the OWE and Joshi performers were and said he hadn't seen anything like them before. He LOVED the Cody/Dustin match. He enjoyed the main event as he has been a huge Jericho fan since '97 WCW.

He hadn't even heard of Jon Moxley or Dean Ambrose but he got goosebumps due to how animated the crowd got, hearing JRs voice on commentary throughout and said Moxley came across as a star due to the way he carried himself. Other than the actual matches, he loved seeing Bret Hart and called MJF a "prick" - which I'll take as a good thing.

Which just goes to show, that if you put out something different as well as putting out a fucking good event, you can draw people in. He probably won't watch religiously but I think I have definitely converted him into hopefully wanting some more AEW.

re: AEW Discussion Thread II

Was there any particular reason to close the old thread? Too cluttered?
I assume now AEW has had it's first event it probably deserves a fresh new thread to go along with the fresh new sub-section.

:mark:

I was thinking because it contained so much theory and now we have some actual.

Pretty much 24 hours later, and im still on a wrestling high. Got to watch the top 3 matches again at a much more sociable hour. Funny how much i missed at 3 in the morning. That Young Bucks match was something special

Yeah I also rewatched the Bucks match and honestly it was even better on a rewatch.

They still went slightly overkill but considering the stage and with this being some people's intro to the teams, it made sense. Cody/Dustin was still MOTN but not by much.

re: AEW Discussion Thread II

I don't think Omega will necessarily be Moxley's first feud. They will obviously feud at some point, but Moxley's attack last night was framed as sending a message to the entire locker room by attacking both main event participants and the ref. It doesn't mean Omega and Moxley will feud immediately. I don't think it would be wise to do so either, since neither of them should take a loss. Omega already lost last night, and Moxley shouldn't be losing his first match.

I think they'll build it gradually and indirectly through the summer and then get the feud started to kick off the new TV deal in the fall. I don't expect a big singles match between them before then.

It's basically a proxy war right now, and then the opening shots to the real war come on the TV program.

Okay so back in 2016 or so I really hoped NJPW would offer a US based alternative to WWE. It really seemed like they had momentum and they were building up US shows for the first time ever. But then idk what happened something fell flat or they didnt really attack the US market as aggressively as they shouldve.

Now, with AEW.. there seems to be that alternative. If all things keep pushing forward as entertaining as last night, I honestly don't see a reason to tune into WWE anymore
