The NWA blew off Joey and all the CZW guys so badly that Joey buried them in public.

the story I'd heard was they wanted to Joey but it was dates and the money that went with them were so bad Joey was insulted. I don't know how much they were paying Tim Storm but $350+trans is way under Joey's usual. It makes me wonder what Aldis agreed to.

Was the production for this all handled by ROH or did they get in their own production people?

It was amazing being there live. It was one of the coolest wrestling related things I've done in my entire life.

I did Wrestle Kingdom and that was utterly amazing, and it made me think I should really do a Wrestlemania one of these years, but after ALL IN I'm thinking that would have been the better show to attend live.

Man I really should have gone to WM30 in New Orleans.

Joey said a few months ago the NWA had no interest in any of the CZW guys and unfollowed him on twitter for his comments about them.

Considering how much of a shill Aldis was for TNA and DIxie it wouldn't surprise me if he was talked into it for exposure or the history of the belt and got paid peanuts

Aldis has absolutely nothing special going on in the world of independent wrestling other than his size so shouldn't be getting paid more than your average part time indie job guy anyway.

He's getting paid little enough that my local rinky dink nothing promotion managed to book him to defend the title a few months ago, and he was garbage in that match too.

That's the only one I've been to and the only one I probably will ever go to. It was loving magical. Wrestle Kingdom would be a dream as well though.

I had to watch the pre-show on twitch and it was a pretty horrible experience with some dickhead in the corner talking non-stop, I can't imagine anyone who stole the main card the same way had a great time watching it under the same conditions. And that's what they deserve for stealing it I guess so

Janela normally does use the Kavinsky song, but for All In it appears he had someone create a soundalike

It wasn't a sound alike it was a remix. It's by Dillion Spears, who's thing is doing stuff like this. He did the new version of Warriors Cry they've been using on BTE, and Marty's theme from when he went for the RoH title. He's pretty good.

I had no way to watch WGN legally down here in Dallas with DirecTV Now, but apparently a lot of the traditional cable packages have it available.

I'm not an industry guy or anything, but my gut feeling is that there are very few inferences you can draw when comparing a number for a one-off special on channel A to weekly programming on channel B.

It probably beat whatever they normally show in that slot, but they also probably paid a bunch more to air it.

“We went a minute over. People were saying 14 minutes [but it] was the show that ran 14 minutes over,” Scurll said. “A bunch of the other matches went over but obviously I guess our match is crucified because we were the match on before last.”

Scurll said that Nick Jackson told him and Okada to do whatever they wanted to do in the ring.

On why he was not part of the curtain call at the end of the show Scurll said “I didn’t know it was going on. I was in the semi-main match. I finished my match, I’ve cooled down and whatever. I was in the shower. I didn’t have a clue.”
