The tag titles have been an afterthought since the Bucks won them.

i think wrestling works best when it paints with bold colours and broad characters and the bucks being sorta kinda maybe heels or faces didn't really interest me as much compared to if they were just straight up good guys or bad guys. all imo of course.

Catching up on a couple of matches I missed now, and the Bunny dropkick into the barricade makes the episode Objectively Good, Actually. Hope this ends any debate

So maybe Mox/Eddie cost the Bucks the match next week so the belts don't get tied up in their feud?

After the PnP match, I am not going to get tricked into thinking the Young Bucks are going to drop their belts that are wasted on the storyline they're involved in

Yeah, either Eddie and Mox co-exist with DT for a bit or DT win the belts and feud with Best Friends leaving Eddie and Mox to find different friends.

It's not that kind of test.

I'm kind of expecting Kenny and co. to turn on the Bucks so the Good Brothers can challenge for the tag titles in a match I absolutely don't care about.

Also Jericho promos should have a time limit with announcements every five minutes like a typical match.

Death Triangle arenít going to win the belts because the finals of the trios tournament is going to be Death Triangle vs Best Friends. That said, get the tag belts over to Jurassic Express or Butcher & the Blade or a Dark Order team or even SCU and get the belts away from the world title.

I was disappointed that this show didn't have Miro disemboweling Kip Sabian for forcing him into a match he didn't want and then losing it for them. I am also getting tired of the Young Bucks' Hamlet routine and would like them and Kenny to find other stuff to do for a while. Good ep overall, but some of the angles are getting a little muddy because they have too many guys they either want or need to put on TV and there isn't enough time for all of them.

i was expecting hangman to lose to caster so they'd feed him to kenny instead and prolong the hangman story/drop his ranking down. i dont know where his #1 contender status goes from here at the moment

Was about to make this exact post. There were about a thousand reasons why PnP winning there would have been the best move and they didn't do it. Moxley and Eddie costing the Bucks next week is also the best move, it's just a shame the match feels like an afterthought

Maybe I'm just being pessimistic and yeah it's convoluted but the Good Brothers have been angling for the belts since they arrived.

There's a lot of that going on lately. SCU are the top tag contenders but they aren't challenging or involved with the title picture. Same with Hangman. At least Tay is interacting with Shida.

I will agree that the sooner the tag belts leave The Elite, the better.

The belts have been involved with the elite for almost fifteen months now. I loved Hangman and Kenny's reign, and that FTR were just transitional champs, and the early parts of the Bucks' reign with a good new couple of tag teams coming in, but it definitely feels like the time is right for the biggest tag team roster there is to get the belts off of the EVP's storylines.

Crapple! posted:

That was a bad episode. The bullet club drama is really grating and has gone on forever. All this time spent on whether or not they are going to side with Kenny and they can't squeeze in a moment to build to the title match against Pac and Fenix. And when they eventually do circle back around to that match, they announce it for the following week and when they try to interview Pac to at least get a single promo in before it happens, before he can say one word they get interrupted by the Best Friends who have an awkward exchange with them just to remind everybody they got the poo poo kicked out of them a year ago and now Statlander is hanging out with them. This is awful

Thank god for the Darby/Drake and the Conti/Bunny matches which were both really good. Aside from that and the Inner Circle segments I don't think there was anything else I liked.

They built it up with several matches and Pac even talked about it tonight when another team challenged them?

It wouldn't really make any sense for Santana and Ortiz to have won there knowing the direction they're going with the story now.

I'm pretty sure AEW had no intention of trying to "beat" NXT tonight, it makes way more sense just to do the normal shows they've been doing that have beaten them in 99.9% of their weekly showdowns over the last 18 months, especially since NXT is running away to hide on Tuesdays.

Edit: Also having just gotten to the QT promo video I am sad that the thread title this week wasn't "This is lovely America."

my prediction is that the bucks drop the belts to DT next week, possibly with interference from mox/eddie; DT's first belt feud then is with the best friends and the elite stuff continues

my question is mainly 'who are the five people who are going to go up against kenny/bucks/bros at blood and guts'

I kinda get where you're going with that, it's a long con by Don Callis to put all the belts on "his guys", Kenny and the Good Brothers...plus it would be Kenny's evil revenge for the Bucks not siding with him, and his saying "you're dead to me."
