aew was my favorite thing about 2019 and i’m excited for what they have in store next. i love the new-to-me talent, especially darby allin and kris statlander, as well as the faith they seem to have in their audience. anyone else watching?

I fell out of regularly watching Dynamite towards the end of the year because it felt a bit too idk Indie Wrestling The TV Show

Just enzuigiris and cutters and superkicks and kicking out of head drops regardless of card placement etc, you know? It was all just blending together a bit, especially with all the stables, and they didn't seem to be using their top talent very effectively outside of Mox/Jericho

I thought the New Year's Day episode was fantastic though, just a procession of rock solid TV matches with good stories

Also it is really nice hearing Tony Schiavone on TV seemingly enjoying himself, and it's the only place you can (contemporaneously) watch Dustin Rhodes doing punches

this week’s episode made it clear that they’re really taking the (constructive) criticism to heart. i’m excited for the next few weeks, especially the cruise episode. i think they should use more unconventional venues, too.

between dynamite and the current iteration of nxt.... i'm a huge wrestling fan now

one month passes...

They've really hit their stride with Dynamite now. People were excited for an episode of TV tha wasn't even the big PPV to finally come round! And then it delivered! Feels weird

They also just blew through having the first trans world champion like it wasn't really a thing, and the old man commentators were (justifiably) really excited about the match

Everything Dustin Rhodes does looks good, including standing up slowly

Elsewhere, Matt Hardy should probably just retire but if he does turn up in AEW I have a firm and possibly inexplicable belief that he should continue to sell his neck injury from WWE

That was a good PPV

Give me ten minute Dustin Rhodes matches that come in at the exact three snowflakes the show requires...for the rest of time

What do you do with Anxious Millennial Tweener Cowboy after that (frankly incredible) piece of business, I wonder

darby v. sammy was so great, even appreciated commentary's selling of allin's botched dive. i love the idea of vince agonizing over how to get his next star to pop like orange cassidy.

i hope darby and sammy have a rivalry for the next decade.

prowling the streets in search of neighborhood grandmas to burn in sacrifice to our lord and savior The Market. may the aroma of their charred lungs please Him and may He bless us with a torrential downpour of dividends. For ever and ever. Amen.

wfh means i can have wrestling on all the time so i'm catching up from the start (except BTE you can't pay me to watch that)

halfway through double or nothing, absolutely incredible PPV so far constantly on the verge of being ruined by alex marvez, the worst possible person for the job

Hopefully they shut this stuff down soon for health reasons, but hopefully it also gives them some time to reflect and confront the sad reality that this Matt Hardy stuff is garbage
