wednesday's show will be really fun but i'm most excited for this because wardlow is so... swoony

I hope they just stare until one of them can’t take it anymore and gets knocked out by the other ones smouldering eyes

Yeah the build to Wardlow / Hager has been great. starting off with ppl online noticing that “lol Hager and Wardlow eyeballing each other again” every time a picture or a screen grab got posted and letting it build from there was smart. Also Wrestle Kingdom!! Been a few months since I watched any NJ but it will be checking back in here for sure. Cards both look a little light to me at first glance but I’m sure they’ll knock it out the park as always

Eddie Kingston’s locker room promo in this week’s BTE is an all timer

Mox is advertised as being back for New Year's Smash, which broke all of our little hearts since so many of us thought that he would be showing up at New Year's Dash instead. I think it'll be his first time back in since he's lost the title to Omega?

hoo boy did i need some wrestling tonight

just watched it knowing the big spoiler because i always do that
they sorta spoiled it right before the match didn't they? showing this and announcing kenny will be appearing "with the elite" next week, even though they haven't been on screen together in months....
quite the goof!!! i'm never watching again

that was all supposed to be behind the spoiler tag idk what happened

did i fuck up or did it fuck up

turns out you can't hide images

the elite wrestled a few times over the summer. the last time was in august. (also, stadium stampede??)
― maura, Saturday, 9 January 2021 15:02 (two weeks ago) link
i don't think they've been associated at all since kenny's turn though right? they've been doing their own thing as face champs
― ✖, Saturday, 9 January 2021 21:24 (two weeks ago) link
Face champs who kick random people in the face?
Maybe their message is mixed but fuck guys who super kick Tony schiavone
― a hoy hoy, Saturday, 9 January 2021 22:24 (two weeks ago) link
i'm sure they'll incorporate that into the current thing but they pretty sharply turned away from it ("we needed to get our edge back") when they started building to the FTR match
they literally apologized for the superkick spree and have been playing pretty pure babyfaces for a couople months now
― ✖, Saturday, 9 January 2021 22:42 (two weeks ago) link
kenny’s turn was a month ago. aew books long term.
― maura, Sunday, 10 January 2021 03:23 (two weeks ago) link
i know... my only point is that i believe "the elite" graphic was meant to be used for promotion after the episode ended, not before the ending. if they'd promoted "the elite" for next week without the episode ending like it did, it would've been bemusing and a little bit intriguing given that the three of them haven't interacted since kenny's turn, but now it obviously makes sense knowing that they re-formed
just a wee and extremely insignificant gaffe not an unusual thing on dynamite
― ✖, Sunday, 10 January 2021 06:56 (two weeks ago) link
like the ending made sense but it was still a "twist"
― ✖, Sunday, 10 January 2021 07:04 (two weeks ago) link
Hey yeah you’re right! I wish they would clear up some of these gaffes but it’s not so bad as to stop me enjoying the show
― a hoy hoy, Sunday, 10 January 2021 08:39 (two weeks ago) link
i find it endearing if anything
― ✖, Sunday, 10 January 2021 09:01 (two weeks ago) link
I think the twist is more about who The Elite will be - there’s a promo Callis cut announcing the match where it could be read as either The Bucks or Good Brothers would join Omega.

I kept wanting someone on commentary to yell "The Young Bucks want answers!" in a callback to one of my favorite calls of all time ("Machine Gun wants ANSWERS" from New Year Dash 2017, which was the last time they were all together, I believe?

i've been on a random fec filings kick and if my love for the hangman page wasn't at 100% by then it was now.
― Western® with Bacon Flavor, Friday, 15 January 2021 05:26 (one week ago) link
he’s very very good
― maura, Sunday, 17 January 2021 02:06 (one week ago) link
I really like how the rest of The Elite (Young Bucks, Kenny, & Cody) all seem really invested in making Hangman a star. Hell, not to cross promotions, but even Hiroshi Tanahashi likes Hangman. Dude just has a really natural charisma that makes it incredibly hard to not cheer for him.

Oh man, I am stoked for the possibilities in the upcoming Women's tournament. Seems like there might be more joshi talent competing? Though I may be reading too far into the Japanese flag on the bracket.
