Daily's Place is a great venue but it'll be good when the weather and humidity lets up, it's clearly affecting some of them.

its gonna get worse before it gets better. if this is as active a hurricane season as NOAA is predicting it will be, i wouldn't be shocked if we have a number of dynamites taping from Undisclosed Inland Location

Hopefully they spring for the swab tests if they move indoors.

MJF pissing off Mox to the point that he uses the (now banned) paradigm shift sounds like a fantastic angle to me.

So what do you think the reasoning for FTR is attacking the Express? To gently caress with the Bucks? To just show they are insincere dicks? Also I loved how sad and confused Hangman looked when he came out.


"Whats are you guys doing?"

Desperately trying to prove themselves to Arn and Tully (mostly Tully)?

So here's a question. If Dynamite is postponed until Saturday next week, is there an appetite for a communal Wednesday night rewatch of the first half of All Out?

I only really got into AEW when Dynamite started (though I did watch Fight for The Fallen) and usually can't participate in the live threads 'cause I'm on the west coast so I'd love that.

Bea Priestley and Jimmy Havoc no longer have bios on the AEW Roster page.

Sadie took it out of her bio too. That'd be a shame, but understandable.

Sadie had some really bad luck. She was due to move to the US and start training with QT before covid hit.

Yeah, I think they'll keep PAC and Riho (especially Riho since she'd be snapped up by STARDOM), but could absolutely see Shanna getting cut. This should free them up to hire Tay, Rachel, and Nicole though.

Riho is a freelancer, I'm saying she'd likely be signed full-time by STARDOM if AEW lets her go.

Anyone know when Jericho recorded his podcast with Conrad that dropped today? He's congested as gently caress

Would he have come down with Bischoff during the last set of tapings?

I've been reminiscing about where the women's division was in February, with Nyla and Riho fully established as the stars of the division and Kris, Britt, Bea, Shida, Yuka and Swole all being developed as prominent characters and it's wild how much of that was lost entirely due to COVID making it so the overseas talent couldn't come over and Swole had to protect herself at home for basically the whole Georgia set of shows due to being immunocompromised. I keep wondering where the division would be now if that plus Kris and Britt getting injured in such quick succession hadn't come down on them.

Even losing most of the international talent the division was still in a decent spot. Unfocused and lacking stories, but getting decent time in the ring.

I hope Tony has decided to hire some of the talent from the tournament. Even when Britt comes back they're going to have a real shortage of faces - Rachel and Nicole could help fill out those roles.

If they do some kind of Horsemen type stable I still think Spears "joins" before getting beat down for always failing while being managed by Tully, driving home the point that they're all about winning and that sentimentality means nothing.
If you go with that kind of mentality for them, what about Cody getting beat by Wardlow at All Out and winning the TNT title, FTR winning the tag titles, and MJF winning the world title?

Kenny leading the Horsemen would probably give Cornette an aneurysm, so they should do that.

Assuming Mox is retaining at all out (which I assume), you could do worse than Mox/Omega II (with heel Kenny) for Big Plat at Full Gear.

If MJF doesn't take it at All Out I'm assuming this is the plan.

I completely agree but I can't put my finger on what it is he's missing that's keeping him from feeling like a main eventer. Mox 100% feels like a main eventer in a way I can't see in Cody.

Cody was a perfectly credible main eventer (IMO) back in 2019, so I think it's really just a crowd.

It's gonna own if Brodie wins the belt and it just motivates the rest of Dark Order even more, since they're so proud of him and want him to feel that same joy.

It would also be great if he kept the open challenge concept (at least for a while) as it would be a great way to have somebody from the Dark Order almost beat him. I'd be curious to see if he'd be pissed off or happy about that. Probably happy they took the initiative and managed to improve so much, right?

I think you could also do something where Brodie lee will only give you a TNT shot if you beat some number of the Dark Order, maybe just V and Stu (and 10 if/when he's recovered).


Also there should be a Hangman vs. Brodie ironman match. Not related to this, but I really want to see that.

Over in the WWE thread, someone posted that HHH told Ryback that John Cena was the last marquee name wrestling would ever have.

We all talk about WWE being focused on "the Brand" over superstars. Is AEW always going to be seen as a competing "brand" to WWE, or is there a chance for a legit superstar to become a new household name ala Hogan and Austin?

I don't think it'll ever get to that point again but if someone (hangman) did get extremely over and was approaching that level, I don't think AEW would kneecap them (intentionally) like WWE would.
