AEW 2023: Scissor Me Daddy!

Message Bookmarked

New set tomorrow shows they are bored of lugging around Cody’s elevator.

Is Sasha/Mercedes Saraya’s partner?

If they continue these storylines, Revolution looks like an amazing show on paper. MJF v D-Bry, Hangman v Mox look on. Dunno if Christian will be fit in time to fight Jungle Boy but that would be a banger. Elite v House of Black is rumoured and would be insane. Hayter keeps having classics, so whoever she fights will be excellent.

Other questions:

Does RoH ever get TV?
Will Miro and Serena Deeb ever be seen again?
Will Mox ever get to go on holiday?
Is Punk gone forever?
Will they ever put more than one women’s match on Dynamite?
Will they ever do something serious with the best wrestler in the world, Eddie Kingston?
Is there going to be Forbidden Door 2?

I’m sure there are others I’m forgetting.

You know, with all the hype around Mercedes showing up in Japan, I totally didn't even consider her being Saraya's partner, but that would rule, honestly.

I would be happy if they did a better streaming service for their wrestling shows across the board, though I know some of their deals with other streaming services makes that a little difficult. It is a pain having to pay to watch AEW on multiple different platforms, though.

I'm really curious how the partnership with NJPW is going to unfold. Forbidden Door was super cool and had lots of great moments, but didn't really feel like it had any long-lasting consequences/results/stories (aside from the really unfortunate Adam Cole injury). I'm hoping that the extended olive branch of sending Omega to Japan will allow for more collaboration that both sides can benefit from, and also allow more talent exchange. Wheeler ruled in BOSJ last year, so I'm hoping that maybe we get some AEW representatives for the G1 this year. Can you imagine a block including Samoa Joe, Jeff Cobb, and Wardlow?

My big question is how long are they going to let MJF's reign of terror continue? I've really liked this run so far, and I think it's been perfect as far as the kind of character MJF is. I hope it lasts a year, especially because I imagine it'll take a while to build up one of the younger guys to be ready to be at that level.

tonight was like “what if i booked aew”. every match rocked

I don’t like the new set. It looks like they haven’t screwed it together in time. And no tunnels, booooooo. It’s not a big deal though.

Holy fuck MJF v DBry Iron Man match at the next PPV?

I hope MJF is up for it. His longest matches have been great, like the Punk one, so it should be incredible. PPVs already feel too long though lol.

I’m absolutely loving heel Swerve and his douchey bodyguards. Him v Keith Lee will be a banger

Such a good Dynamite so far

Anyone else think there's more to Saraya's declaration of Toni Storm being her tag partner? Seemed weirdly anti-climactic.

Shida looked pretty pissed in the promo, it looks like a good set up to something. Definitely suggests Mercedes/Sasha aint coming though.

Joe-Darby was boss.

I absolutely adore Taz, Ex and Tony during picture-in-picture.

Bit weird to set up Saraya as a bigot (doesn’t address Shida by name before announcing her decision, only “you”) and try to shape Shida’s inevitable (and entirely morally justified) snap into something unreasonable à la The Mega Powers Explode! but if it means Shida gets featured more on TV then I’m here for it, for now.

Honestly wonder if this is a set-up to have Shida and Mercedes team up against Storm/Saraya and Britt/Hayter.

Another great Dynamite. Rampage looks like it could be a good one too with Orange Juice

sorry to be a snowflake about this but there was way too much misogyny/racism/making fun of ppl’s speech impediments in the promo department for me this week. try harder

fantastic show otherwise. takeshita is the guy

It is with a heavy heart that we mourn the tragic passing of Jamin Pugh, known to wrestling fans around the world as Jay Briscoe. Our thoughts are with his family, his friends, and his fans.

This one hurts.

up until the last 30 seconds or so, the brian cage/willie mack match was absolute greatness.

the jay briscoe stuff is just absolutely devastating

Yeah the news sucks. Shamefully I’ve never really watched much of the Briscoes. Those recent matches with FTR have been incredible. I did actually remember watching the match against Steen where he won the ROH championship and loving it.

I know the Briscoes have made some pretty vulgar comments in the past but recent talk has suggested that they had regretted them and people can learn and grow from their mistakes.

Maybe when I get a bit of free time I should do a ROH deep dive, my knowledge is scattered and obviously there is years of classic wrestling to discover.

really emotional main event tonight

Cried through most of it. Cried at the neckbreaker. Cried at the Jay Driller.

So happy the Briscoes finally made it to AEW, but I hate the circumstance and I hate that there was so much resistance to it before. Truly one of the best tag teams in modern wrestling.
