Yeah, good, ok.

Sign up the women who’ve had good showings on Dark and the Tag Tournament while you’re at it and get us some decent women’s stories for the run from All Out to Full Gear. There’s no reason they can’t have two angles running simultaneously between Shida, Nyla, Britt, Penelope & Swole plus the addition of like Savoy, Ellering & Diamanté or Ivelisse (assuming any of them are interested). Meanwhile, let Abadon and Anna Jay get reps on Dark, and bring Tay Conti in for Dark a few more times as well and see if she can develop any.

International travel probably isn’t happening again for a while, so they’ve gotta figure something out.

Enjoyable episode. Bucks vs. Uno/Grayson was a lot of fun. Uno/Grayson did a lot of really cool tag stuff and I really hope they get a chance to pick up some big wins down the line.

Excited for Brodie vs. Cody, hopefully it'll lead to Brodie picking up the belt. Would be kind of neat if it somehow led to Colt beating Brodie for the belt way down the line, but idk.

Fun seeing RNR Express out there with Tully and Arn. Even cooler seeing them bump for FTR. Being able to spike piledrive Ricky Morton had to be one of the coolest things they did in their career. Tully did a great job getting rid of Arn and then distracting the Bucks with Spears just long enough for FTR's attack then Spears' smiling after seeing the damage. Fascinating story so far. Really liked Tully's promo too.

Good episode, a shame about the horrible humidity/heat they had to wrestle in. And yeah, i'll take OC's win, but he deserved for the pin to be less sloppy than it was, i'm blaming both the humidity and Jericho being beefy and not being able to bend the way he needed to.

dynamite fuckin slaps. weird finishes tonight, but i'm always pretty confident they'll steer the ship to good places. put shida on the mic more and give her a feud, she needs it.

Lamuella

It's like goldy or bronzy, but made of iron.




Dynathoughts

Early shot of Japanese Deathmatch Legend Luther. Still no Excalibur. They need to make Toney full play by play, he's already driving.

1) Young Bucks vs Uno and Stu. Early assault from the Dark Order henchmen. Hot start that adds peril to the match. Stu Grayson stays on my Mount Rushmore of underappreciated AEW guys. Uno shouldn't be slept on either. The midair catch into German suplex was fantastic. JR you don't need to make the Dick Grayson joke every time. Angelico just lounging on a box in the background is great. This is a wild and fun match to start. One of the little things that Dynamite does that I love: they always start with a red hot match, giving people incentive to tune in from the start. This was such a clever hero finish

Wardlow. MJF walking with his entourage. He does the self important Candidate thing superbly.

I hate when they say Shida is "in action", because it means "squashing a jobber"

Loved the Hangman / Omega "greatest tag team of all time" spot.

MJF doing the candidate thing again. Love Sabian supporting him in the crowd. MJF's lovely nicknames for Moxley are great. Sailing a bit close to the wind with the "look up at the lights" comment. Goddamn, the camera work on this is outstanding. GO TO THE BUMS! GET THAT IDIOT! Mox has the Stone Cold thing down perfectly. He has an efficiency of movement and action that is superb, no wasted motion.

Matt Hardy interview, kind of poorly mic'ed. Good that they confirmed on air that Dynamite is Saturday. Matt was decently unhinged here.

2) Cody vs Scorpio Sky. This needs to be Sky's time. The "Kick the door down" spot was great, but the door should have come down on "SKY". Love the symbolism of Cody with his entourage and Sky as a lone wolf. Cody is basically working positional heel here. "Prince of Pro Wrestling" is a heel moniker. Oh hey, Mike Chioda! Big Fight Feel in full effect. Sky starts off hot and wild. For all that I sometimes rag on him, Cody is great at making an opponent feel important. Wow, the submission spots are really making Cody look like a bad guy here. This is a hell of a singles match. Toney, Sky was half of the first tag team champions, not just first African American tag champ. KICK OUT OF CROSS RHODES! That's a king-making moment. This is a methodical match, but it's really really good. Until... gently caress. I really wanted Sky to win. That's left me a bit deflated.

Ooh, Mr Brodie as next challenger? With the old belt? Nice.

3) Jurassic Express vs Cowboy Bebop. Hi, Bryce! Kenny starting off aggressive against Jungle Boy. Marko doing his yappy dog thing. Kenny in tights that don't suck. Match start is a little scrappy but the action is fun throughout. While he's never going to be the fastest, Luchasaurus has a combination of power and athleticism that's utterly compelling. The continuation of the Marko / Kenny feud is fun. Kenny being half of the best tag team in AEW sometimes makes you forget that he's probably the best singles wrestler in the whole company. Jungle Boy is just so fast and athletic and charismatic to watch. This was the ending I was expecting but boy was it a fun match.

Proud and Powerful wrecking Dustin and Greg's luggage is fun.

Butcher and Blade look like cats on a hot day, wilting in the heat.

Tag Team Appreciation Night. Matt Jackson is a bit too ego polishing here. Dax is pretty decent on the mic. Ricky Morton can still talk, but he gets a bit lost here. Tully gives a pretty effective wake up call here. He's awfully good at the truth telling element. Segment ending was a bit chaotic, too many moving parts.

Hahaha, Jericho's jacket is more horribly orange every time.

Sammy doing the cards again. The chat with the camera guy was unintentionally great.

4) Hikaru Shida vs... Heather Monroe? Heather gets a hot start, which is probably the only way to shoot your shot in a Shida match. Crikey, this is a lot more back and forth than I was expecting... until the submission finisher of course. And still no challenger for All Out

Lance murdering people behind Jake is great. Lance writing things on Jake is weird.

Ooh, putting All Out 2019 on youtube for free? Nice.

And the women's tournament final on Dynamite? That's cool.

5) Chris Jericho vs Orange Cassidy. Surprisingly fast start. Cassidy's flying shoulder is flat out beautiful. The match wasn't as spectacular as their last one but still compelling. Cassidy showing some real innovation here with things like the dragon screw. Love some of the Chioda spots here. Huge Red Shoes energy as he grabs the bat. Boo to Hager coming in, yay to Orange kicking out. ORANGE WINS! The ending wasn't pretty, but Orange by god Cassidy has a pinfall victory over Chris Jericho.

I wasn't feeling Dynamite as much this week as last, but all told this was a remarkably fun show.

Meditation on inevitable death should be performed daily. Every day when one’s body and mind are at peace, one should meditate upon being ripped apart by arrows, rifles, spears and swords, being carried away by surging waves, being thrown into the midst of a great fire, being struck by lightning, being shaken to death by a great earthquake, falling from thousand-foot cliffs, blinded by needlessly realistic monster genitalia mods in Skyrim,
penetrated by excessively large sparkling dragon dildos. And every day without fail one should consider himself as dead

I'm way more forgiving of JR than most people here, but this is one thing he does that just gets on my last nerve. He's got a handful of "jokes" that, despite getting no reaction, he feels obligated to repeat EVERY. SINGLE. TIME. a wrestler is on screen. The Dick Grayson thing is one. Though I didn't hear it tonight, for the longest time, every time Orange Cassidy would show up, he'd say something about "I bet he has the bottoms cut out of his pockets"... Just over and over again.

Brodie really should win the TNT belt next Saturday, just so Dark Order can start getting all the belts.

I also found the cut from Shida’s spot to Archer’s spot kinda funny.

Shida:’I will take on anyone!’
Smashcut to Archer
Archer: ‘I will take on that challenge!’

Archer as Women’s champ would be something, I guess. They are both getting as much attention lately.

I love that the MFJ/Moxley feud isn't a cliché "Heel beats down the face for weeks" thing. MJF shouldn't be getting the upper hand on Moxley, it should be exactly like it was last night - he's such a little worm that he gets under Moxley's skin and might make him slip up.

I still maintain that Mox shouldn't have gotten his hands on MJF until All Out.
