I don't watch AEW but I will occasionally to see a match of someone I follow and would want to see in NXT, like Brian Cage for example.

How the fuck is this



this little shit, about 22 years old, looks about 150lbs soaking wet walking to the ring, you'd think this is Sid Vicious or Samao Joe something the way he's gazing into the camera. :ROFLMAO: He has a match and you see him destroy 1manthrillride , a guy who is 50lbs or more bigger get absolutely squashed by this dork. 1manthrill ride looks like a grown man and has put 8 years more time in the wrestling business over the Garcia guy, and he's getting demolished by this little twerp. Then I thought to myself OK let me give him the benefit of the doubt, maybe he's a former MMA guy like Matt Riddle or something and that's why he's booked like this (even then I wouldn't like it).. but no, he has no MMA history. He's just booked like a monster who dominates people despite being 5'7, 5'8 and looking like a skinny teenager.





and then later on the same show,

you see a 6'5 265lbs Kevin Mathews lose clean to a 5'8 180lbs comedy joke Sonny Kiss. and these aren't matches where the little guy is playing an underdog and selling for the bigger men or winning in an upset type of fashion. These are decisive wins where the smaller guys are dominating the big guys.


yeah I know wrestling is not supposed to be 100% realistic but this is just stupid, you can tell they're catering their product to the hardcore indy fans with moves like this. and I don't watch everything regarding Brian Cage but from what I've heard, he's booked quite weak.

Anyone that calls themselves '1 man thrill ride' deserves to get their ass kicked.

Having said that I don't get the Daniel Garcia love and why he's all over AEW and a bunch of Indies lately. To me he's just a skinny guy that does boring submission matches, so basically Zack Sabre Jr.

Billy Gunn called himself Mr. Ass and had a similar type of character. I still wouldn't buy Billy Gunn being bulldozed by Zack Gowen or Brian Kendrick.

If only there was an "old school-style" promotion out there that had a working relationship with AEW and would benefit from signing the indy body guys and guys with old school gimmicks that show up frequently on AEW Dark and putting them on their shows instead of Funkasaurus and Chris Masters.

Then simply don't watch. Maybe wrestling isn't for you and sports entertainment is. Nothing wrong with that. Forunately for you there is already a place for watching big beefy guys slam into each other. It's called WWE...also...there's gay porn. So...
this is an interesting take considering usually I'm the one being accused of homphobia here

but since you brought up WWE being like gay porn

Finn Balor (5 ft 9) defeated Mace (6 ft 6) in ~3 mins on this past RAW.

If you wanna watch beefcakes win everything then bodybuilding contests are right up your alley.
still not the same thing. Balor is an established veteran that's held multiple championships. Mace is a rookie.

That Danny Garcia guy has only been wrestling for about 3-4 years, he's not even established but you see him bulldoze through a guy who looks much more physically credible. and even in the Mace vs. Balor match you don't see Balor dominating Mace. Mace dominates Balor for the majority of the match, Balor selling, gaining momentum and then makes a strong comeback. There is atleast some believable psychology there.

It's called a push.

Khan likes Garcia a lot so he's beating jobbers on Dark whilst losing to vets on the main shows, the size of the jobber means nothing, in fact in pro wrestling it's preferred for jobbers to be larger when it's a smaller guy getting the push.

A simple story of skill vs size. That's all it is. The kid is young, technically skilled, not bad on the mic for his time in, and most importantly has plenty of time and room to grow.

It's called putting over an up and comer.

Just because you don't see it doesn't mean guys like Bryan or Punk don't.
