Cardona’s AEW shirt is somehow the top selling shirt on PWTees of the week (only masks are ahead of it), I guess he’s got a market somewhere that’s not here.

Someone pointed out to me that he has almost as many twitter followers as the rest of the WWE releases combined. Dude knows how to market himself.

His toy podcast fanbase is pretty rabid for merch, him and Myers quite regularly do promotions where they’ll call you personally to say thanks for buying it which is pretty cool too.

I mean, if there was any fanbase that would be insanely rabid for merch, it'd be toy fans.

The guy does, perhaps, know a thing or two about getting himself over on the internet. He is, some may say, a champion of it.

cardona's great and has a very real very strong passion for the industry and for fig collecting. he very clearly knows how to tap into the nostalgia segment of wrestling fans taht lots of other wrestlers don't seem to be able to. i hope he is managed by super gabby and starts selling YOU ALREADY KNOW shirts soon.

What if he creates the perfect action figure while still cutting production costs, and aew figurines become the most popular toy out there even among people who have no idea what wrestling is. then aew doesn't have to run shows to be profitable just like WWE

Wait, it all makes sense. His fan base is WWE toy nerds which tends to be older guys with the extra cash. Cardona is going to help them win the 50+ war.

TK bought off a good review and promo for their figures, what a businessman

I do hope that Ariane / Cameron has become a much better wrestler, but even if she hasn't, I have a soft spot for her for giving me one of my favorite botches ever.

I'm not even sure you can call it a botch, really. A botch is usually being out of position, or trying to do something you can't physically accomplish, or slipping, tripping, over-rotating, under-rotating, sand-bagging etc. They're all mistakes. Her botch was a fundamental lack of understanding of the most basic rule of wrestling, how to pin a person.

To be fair to him, even when he was still at WWE they both regularly poo poo on the toys when they were bad.

I'm pumped for that dark lineup.

Great to see TH2 back. I love the Cage/Starks dynamic with Taz they fit really well together.

I really hope the Lucha Bros beat FTR for the tag title. FTR rip off Fenix's mask again and he's wearing a second mask underneath, then rollup and pin. Lucha Bros tag team champs.

FTR are free to go full four horsemen after this.
