Cody won't break most people's top 8 because he's the perfect mid card champion. Not good enough to out-shine his opponents, not bad enough to really hate on. When I went to Dynamite live (It was the Halloween episode) he was over as gently caress though. It was also the same episode where people started singing along to Judas, and Hangman cut the "Cowboy poo poo" promo which finally turned people into liking him for the first time

My dad, who grew up watching 70s era stuff and then 80s NWA and early 90s WCW, didn't watch much since outside of a couple ROH shows and the like we went to together. At this show he said to me that Hangman is gonna be world champ some day, that promo had that much of an effect on someone almost entirely out of the loop of wrestling.

It was like a ten word promo but that's all it took for everyone to turn the corner on Page. I wasn't a fan until he came out and cut that promo either.

I hope they have Veda call the women’s tag finals on Dynamite. She’s been great and I’m glad they had her call Dark.

Veda, Portia Perez, and Prazak are probably the best equipped to call women's wrestling, and I had no idea how much other women loved Veda until I started listening to a Joshi podcast where they would all unanimously name drop as as one of their favorite opponents to wrestle along with Satomura, Thunder Rosa, and begrudgingly Aja Kong. I remember Veda before she even got into the ring, I'm ecstatic to see her moving up, the weird Chikara-adjacent talk show she had was my so good.

Tony is the perfect color guy, because he's always just enthusiastic and thrilled to be involved in wrestling again. JR is still jaded and horny and doesn't care about a whole lot of the undercard. Tazz has the knowledge but half the enthusiasm.

Veda/Excalibur/Tony is perfect for the Undercard
Tazz/Excalibur/Tony is perfect for the mid-card
Ross/Excalibur/Tony is perfect for big matches and southern-style blood feuds

AEW is still kinda getting their footing but they're really leaning into WCW at their peak's commentary. Excalibur is the best all-around guy they've got, Tony is still great at his job, they just need to find a good mix of their all-around Bobby the Brain/Extremely knowledgeable and enthusiastic Mike Tenay/Insane Dusty Rhodes/Insane Mongo/and faux analytical Larry.

Also bring back the slow-mo replays/break-downs after the match highlights because Excalibur and Tazz would kill that.

I'm just bewilderingly far apart from everyone on Cody. I think he might be the best guy they have. When he wants to cut a good promo, there's nobody better than him and he's great in the ring. The TNT title run has been fantastic though I do think the time to end his reign is right about now. He's certainly in a nebulous mix of my favs that include Hangman, Pac, Mox and MJF too

I like Cody a lot. His TNT title reign has been pretty good and has got some people signed that I've never heard of before. Ricky being one of my favorite in AEW at the moment. I guess my only complaint is I'm ready for something new to happen with him.

I'm in the same boat. Cody was cutting some fantastic promos the first couple of weeks of TV and his match vs. Dustin last year is still one of the top 5 AEW matches imo. Hell, maybe even top 3. I think Cody, more than anyone else, suffers from not having a crowd. He oddly feels like a dude everyone sees as or want to be a midcarder and when he slots into that, it dips into Always Bad territory, but when he's heavily featured like he was early on, he's loved or at least received better. Though I'm probably biased because Cody is my #5 or #6. I do think once he gets a proper feud instead of just a character story, he'll benefit from that and dropping the TNT belt.

I'd love for Brodie to be that guy, but part of me also thinks Cody holds the belt just a bit longer. Though a (presumably) main event Saturday night title change would rule.
