When I checked on peacock as Dynamite was ending it said it started 4 hours previously. So if it's not 4 hours long, that's on Peacock.

Itís a two hour show

Last post from me and then Iím stepping away from here for the year. Perma me if I donít.

don't do this.

Anyway I still like the show and I like posting about it with people here. The weekly discussion is whatever, I can always choose to not read the thread or participate if I don't like it.

NXT having better matches last night is... fine? Last night AEW had two matches I thought were HMs, the rest of the show the matches were just meh. NXT being better isn't shocking or anything. I still enjoyed my time watching it, like I have done every week since December. If this was not the case for you, I am sorry you did not enjoy it, you should not watch things you don't enjoy.

it is a bit funny that the arguments appear to be 'there are too many people on tv every week so you need to just feature the same few people every week' and 'the same people are on tv every week so you should put more people on tv'

Yeah, we all (rightly) poo poo on WWE for featuring Charlotte and Roman and Braun and Orton in every goddamn feud and it's a big reason why I don't watch WWE anymore. Anyone outside of the privileged few in WWE and NXT are complete nobodies that have no hope of getting into a main event picture and they've made that abundantly clear to the viewers. AEW like they like to cycle people in and out based on what storylines they want to progress that week and it seems fine to me.

There is definitely fat to trim, I can't argue with that. We don't need Sky and Ethan Page laughing to set up whatever they're doing while basically being completely removed from the story otherwise. But a lot of this feels like "they put ethan page on TV and not the person I want to see" type complaints and it happens every time we're a month+ away from the next PPV in this thread.

One time a guy stole some downhill skis out of my jeep and I was so mad I punched a mailbox. I'm against crime, and I'm not ashamed to admit it.


I know the roster is huge but itís not like thereís a ton of fat to trim. Guys like Daniels, Jericho, Dustin and Christian all seem to be in their last runs, guys like Cutler and Nakazawa have other roles but ultimately harmless to have on the roster as job guys. The tag division is a little crowded but thereís not really any teams I would cut either.

I guess if you held a gun to my head and told me to cut 20 wrestlers Iíd cut:

- Hager
- Spears
- Colt
- Preston Vance (sorry -1!)
- cutler
- Nakazawa
- Christian
- Kazarian
- Daniels
- Dr Luther (sorry MRT!)
- Shanna
- Mel
- Serpentico
- Janela
- Sonny Kiss
- Marko stunt
- Matt Sydal
- Mile Sydal
- Leva Bates
- Ethan Page

i honestly do not think Mel is even with AEW anymore, but the rest of that list is what?

As much as I think the AEW roster is (maybe) egtting too huge, I just think they need to not get new people for a while. But also giving indie guys paydays on Dark is cool and good.

Thank the good lord above the Wednesday Night Wars are over because arguing the minute details of every show and seeing how it might increase or decrease viewership is exhausting and not fun.

Now we can focus more on important topics such as:

Will Death Triangle become a square by getting someone to counter Statlander?
Who will (eventually) dethrone Kenny?

Cut the roster by 50%, then give the remaining roster various masked identities so they can double, or even triple the roster size.

AEW pushing back a couple of live dates, but only by 1-2 months. This suggests to me that they think they'll be touring by August, otherwise they'd push them back longer.

Put Abadon in with Death Triangle because they are the only ones who aren't afraid of her and because Fenix and Penta are all, "I have seen actual demons in Lucha Underground, so we're cool."

I want more woman in factions as a whole. Like Britt almost works in The Pinnacle, and Leyla for Team Taz, and maybe Jade for QT's Get-a-Long Gang.

as far as Kenny goes, I like the idea they have right now where Hangman is ranked #1, but he also seems like he doesn't want to go for the belt. He's no ready to face that part of his life yet and just wants to have fun with his Dark Order buddies

really though if the issue people are having is 'they've got all these people they aren't using' i would absolutely make the time to watch dark every week b/c it's impossible to fit everyone into two hours a week and dark is a chill watch with a bunch of fun matches. same thing if your issue is that you're seeing too many of the same people wrestle (which, IMO, isn't that much of an actual problem AEW has, but hey)

i do hope they get the second show Soon because it'll give them reason to differentiate their focuses a bit more. with just dynamite on tv every week you do get the situation of 'this is the one show we can trust everyone's watching who cares about aew, and as such it has to have everything all at once'
