I've been involved in a number of cults, both as a leader and a follower.

You have more fun as a follower. But you make more money as a leader.

He needs a meaningful feud and also a cool finisher. One man magic killer ain't doing it for me.

Yeah, Kipís hanging suplex finisher just looks weak. Itís both more complicated and less impactful than a regular suplex.

The rope hang works for Ortonís DDT or MJFís piledriver because the amount of height for the drop is equal or greater than a normal one, on a suplex theyíre just being dropped from half the height.

I think it usually looks really good (most times he gets a very good snap on it), but it shouldn't be his finisher.

edit: I realize it's probably impossible right now due to the heat, but I love the visual of the dark order on the entranceway stage and wish theyd do that for every dark order match, all match long

Tangentially related, do you think that sometime in 2022 when crowds are back (I know, I know, I'm being crazy optimistic) that they'll move the hard camera back or is facing the ramp the new normal?

I would assume it would be based around how it looks, AEW doesn't have problems adapting for different venues and making things look unique.

I like it this way. It makes runins more fun. I like how AEW shoots the show.

Also, has Jon Cruz been hired yet? Dude is out there putting in the work as two frickin' guys at least, he deserves the stability of a contract.

Same, and they're really making use of that space for storytelling and extra violence. I don't know that the traditional long ramp would really allow for that view and use, though a shorter one like they used at Revolution would split the difference nicely and also they should bring back the light-up ramp and third screen.

He's also trained a ton of the younger talent we've seen this year.

Also sexism, religious bias, jingoism, and so on. Don't do it, people!

Dogs, don't do it either, even if the police man really tries to train you to do it.

His push kind of got ruined by the whole Havoc thing, he was having good matches tagging with Havoc but then it turned out Havoc is a terrible person and is no longer employed. Now they need to figure out either a new tag partner or something to do solo.

Really interested in seeing Penta and Fenix do something. Yesterday's dark implied they're done with The Butcher and The Blade, but there's still one more 8-man tag set for this week. Maybe they'll turn on them and stat a feud.

Put him back with TH2 and let them feud with Jungle Express.

It's still insane to me that they weren't the first tag team champs and have to take a backseat to FTR, who aren't as interesting or good.

I'm still holding out hope that the FTR thing is a misdirect and the Lucha Bros win the titles just before All Out, and take down the FTR by the books then, prompting the horsemen to show up and beat up the champs.

I just finished watching Dark and now am gonna watch All Out on youtube. AEW makes it really easy to be a fan.
