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

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.

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

Not really AEW but STARDOM's Hana Kimura has died aged 22, apparently taking her own life amid some inexplicably vicious reality TV-related cyerbullying

I saw her wrestle for EVE in Bethnal Green in 2018 and she had subsequently pivoted to this cyber-goth look and had a ton of charisma and potential

She opened the wrestle kingdom card in a dark match this year and would almost certainly have become a much bigger star

A stunningly miserable situation

Dadjokke (Sgt. Biscuits), Saturday, 23 May 2020 13:30 (four months ago) link

it’s so awful :(

maura, Saturday, 23 May 2020 15:21 (four months ago) link

really enjoyed double or nothing. i’m rewatching the stadium stampede now

maura, Sunday, 24 May 2020 15:21 (four months ago) link

yeah, really great show top-to-bottom, can't remember when I saw a better. it had a little bit of everything.

MJF and Jungle Boy were a total revelation - I had preemptively pigeon-holed MJF as a better, funnier version of the Miz which is to say not that good a wrestler as such, and Jungle Boy I figured at age 22 was gonna be mostly energy and high spots without much substance. but that match was an absolute clinic! smartly worked, great pacing, strong character beats, awesome counters, the whole shebang. they both came off as a big time stars.

i definitely need to rewatch the Stadium Stampede. in the moment it felt like pretty much the greatest wrestling anything that I'd ever seen and I am pretty confident I won't be revising that opinion on repeat viewings. it was already a 10/10 just from the entrances, the cheerleaders, the Inner Circle coming out in full uniforms, Kenny immediately breaking his broom over Ortiz's helmet and so on. then Hangman riding in on the horse sent the whole thing into the stratosphere. the entire sequence with Matt Hardy, Santana and Ortiz in the swimming pool absolutely sent me, i couldn't breathe for laughing. the whole thing lived up to the expectations and then some. just incredible.

every single stray thought i had during the stampede "oh wouldnt it be awesome if they did that" they went right ahead and did, with brilliant execution. such a joy. the opposite in every respect of the way that WWE does things (Boneyard match excepted I guess)

Windsor Davies, Sunday, 24 May 2020 17:22 (four months ago) link

The company’s been running laps around WWE in terms of handling the characters/storylines during these audience-free shows.

Miro, with his easy charm, and his preternaturally convincing limb selling

Will there be any survivors at all from poor Kip's stupid wedding? Only Miro can decide this
