Dani Jordyn’s gimmick feels too local indie to be on TV, but at least they used it in a fun way. Also really liked Skyler Moore this week, the power moves she was doing isn’t really being done by any of the other women AEW is featuring right now. Also really interested in what the hell is going on with Diamanté and Ivelisse, everything about how they’re presented point towards an are #AllElite graphic, but Tay seems to have skipped the line. Kind of bummed that Diamanté isn’t the one getting the match with Thunder Rosa on Dynamite.

i wish they'd be more transparent about who has a deal with the company and who doesn't in some way, like keeping the roster promptly up to date or doing #AllElite announcements for everyone

maybe they ARE doing those and there are just tons of people with no deals in the company right now and I shouldn't give a poo poo about how they're doing their business with indie contractors, but there are a lot of people who have been appearing for months now that I want to see stick around and get invested into

I think the roster page is for sure the best indicator of who has some sort of an exclusive deal with them. It seems like they make it a priority to keep it up to date, even if Earl Hebner is still on there.

I was impressed with Skyler Moore too. She had some really nice offense, I think she'd be a good addition to the division.

Darkthoughts

Love the opening back and forth between Excalibur, Taz, and Veda

1) Red Velvet vs Brandi Rhodes. Fun match. Red Velvet is a better wrestler than Brandi but they match well. The appearance / interference of Anna Jay was good story.

2) Daniel Garcia and Kevin Blackwood vs The Butcher and the Blade. Buffalo Brothers represent. That's quite the outfit, Kevin. Love Daniel Garcia in Beyond. Early domination from B&B. Liked the shine from Blackwood, he's got skills, but quickly shut down by B&B. Full Death is still not a pretty move. Decent squash.

3) Penelope Ford vs Dani Jordyn. Jordyn has new gear I think. Looking very professional. Love that Kip leans into the himbo character so much. Taz, maybe talk about women a bit less. Jordyn looking pretty good here. Penelope Ford continues to improve. Once Excalibur and Veda shut Taz down I enjoyed this.

4) Brian Cage versus Megabyte "2 Cakes" Ronnie. Ronnie has an absolute 1970s bod in a good way. Obviously this is pretty one sided but this is pretty heavily physical in a good way. Great pop up powerbomb from Ronnie. Hot dog spot was funny.

5) Proud and Powerful vs Griff Garrison and Brian Pillman Jr. Good fiery match. Glad that they let the underneath guys get offense on the same level as P&P. Garrison is really getting some seasoning now. Liked the spot of Pillman trying to tag in and not quite getting it. Love Ricky on commentary being laconic. "I have two thumbs, Excalibur".

6) Jessy Sorensen vs WILL HOBBS. We had hotdogs earlier, now we've got a serious helping of beef. Monster lariat to start. Absolutely love the push out of the cross body. Less a match and more a catalogue of Will Hobbs' power moves.

7) Rache Chanel vs Ivelisse and Diamante. This could be rough. Ivelisse and Diamante have a great collective look. Skyler Moore has a great armdrag. Rache Chanel has a pretty good back elbow. Oof, there was some clumsy stuff from Chanel there. Diamante's corner dropkick is awesome. Chanel's "shining wizard" was loving awful. There's 3 good wrestlers in this match and one mannequin made of broomsticks. 75% of a good match.

8) Colt Cabana vs QT Marshall. Dark Order out for a struggle session. Decent match between two good wrestlers, with very good story bits from the Dark Order side. Cabana being insecure and off his game is progressing the story well. Thanks for the Matt Classic ref there, Excalibur. Marshall's diving back elbow is very good. This is becoming a really compelling story match. I love that Stu Grayson is just a pure weapon. Very enjoyable.

9) Peter Avalon vs Brandon Cutler. Breaks my heart that my boys are fighting, but this could be great. Love the dragon mask on Cutler. This starts HOT. Lots of fast, passionate moves. Glad the Bucks are at ringside. Peter, don't shove Leva out of the way, that's not what you do with a Leva! Lots of energy, lots of story, and some really creative moves from both guys. Cutler's reverse DDT is amazing. Avalon's moonsault is a thing of beauty. Uh oh, both on the outside. Double count out? DOUBLE COUNT OUT! Perfect! Awww, Leva

10) Maxx Stardom and Dontae Smiley vs Best Friends. We have some ring gear going on here. New guys aren't making a huge amount of impact at the start. Stardom has a couple of slick moves which are fun. Not much to say about this but I like more serious Best Friends.

11) Dark Order vs In The Club. Grayson, Uno, Reynolds, and Silver are a hell of a great four man team. Private Party are superb. Gunn Club are also there. OK, I'll be fair, Billy can still go. Austin never went. Dropkick Sunset Flip from Private Party is wild. I love Tiny Tank John Silver so much. I love 8 man clusterfucks, so much fun, so much happening. I know Uno and Grayson are the OG tag team in Dark Order, but God do I want a Grayson singles run. I could watch Reynolds and Silver fight Private Party forever. Fun, chaotic main event. Good work, guys.

Altogether a fun show.

For everyone worried about Veda

Re Ivelisse being signed, from a recent interview:

quote:

Bell To Belles had to ask: was there an AEW contract in the works for Ivelisse?

…Obviously I’ve been featured a lot and that’s definitely a good thing. So, yeah, I can’t really comment further on that, but, definitely things look very positive.”
...
I’ve literally given half of my life to pro wrestling, to women’s wrestling, because it’s my number one passion. And my number one passion within that passion is to represent women’s wrestling at its highest, or at least at my highest capability, and to contribute towards those changes for women’s wrestling, on how women are perceived as competitors in the ring, and to gain that respect and that credibility that we all work so hard for, and I feel we deserve. So, now thankfully, thank God with AEW, so far, I’ve had these opportunities to continue that, and I am beyond grateful for that, too.”

What a wild way to describe undermining a coworker, even if it was supposed to probably come off as playful.

Yeah this is exactly how it read to me. Just needlessly needling, even going beyond Taz's usual and expected "grumpy" persona. Taz interrupted her noticably more than he ever does to Excalibur.

I'm glad that Cutler and Avalon are getting routine bookings online at least, but the fact that they aren't on Dynamite is criminal: they're really, really good.

Sidenote, it looked like Rache Chanel caught Diamantes elbow REALLY hard. It was towards the start of the match, and Chanel drops for an arm drag, but just gets annihilated instead. Did she get confused, or just sell it well? Who knows!
