How many Championships?
I've been a big wrestling fan since I was a small child. Huge WWE mark from the late 80s to the very early 00s. Then things got rough and I pretty much checked out. Gave AEW a chance when it launched and haven't looked back. Feels great to be Elite.

Got back into wrasslin in 2014 and watched Wrestlemania 30. Pretty much only watched WWE but would occasionally watch Wrestle Kingdom. Life was p good for a few years, but when AJ and Nak started hitting each other's balls I stopped. What trash.

Luckily AEW was right around the corner and has been loving good nonstop. I don't think AEW is without flaws, but I don't believe it's actively insulting my intelligence. It's such a great fuckin show that I'm not gonna nitpick it. I'm just here to watch TK cook.

I'm hootin' & hollerin' about how AEW goes so goddamn hard on matches sometimes, it's crazy how it's just "free" on TV. I've legitimately marked out in the comfort of my own living room a bunch of times since it's inception, and I've been watching wrestling since probably 1984, and haven't felt that with WWE since '98, and never felt it with TNA.

Plus, the women's division got my 8 yr old daughter hooked on the product and now she's a goddamn mark.

Hell AEW got my partner of 17 years into wrestling. She hated the stuff. Now she watches every week

MJF is the greatest professional wrestling prodigy the western world has ever seen. Only Kurt Angle is close and MJF is even better than that.
Even when he does things people don't like he's doing a good job of doing that thing.

NEVER!!!


The kangaroo kick is solid, it'll be cool if weaves it into his move set without the setup, like Okada's dropkick.

A snap kangaroo kick.

Still thinking about the MJF vs. Omega match. AEW is so good rn, heck, itís been great for so many PPVs now. Hope more people will join in the hootin and hollerin.

While it can be frustrating sometimes, I like the chaotic feel of AEW programming. It's a natural consequence of weekly live programming that isn't as insanely micromanaged as WWE was at its worst, and sometimes things are overlooked and rushed and burdened by production errors, but the peaks and valleys of live wrestling TV add to the excitement for me. That, along with the match variety and clashes of styles, is what made WCW fun before Russo totally ruined it; there was a spark of madness to it that was missing from wrestling when WCW folded. AEW brought that back for me and it seriously feels like I get to eat ice cream for dinner three times a week now.

Iíve really been enjoying when the next matchb intros actually start while the tail of the last angle is still in the ring or on the stage. Not too often, but it creates a hype moment sometimes

even if there's something on a show that I don't really like there's always something else that's whips rear end. I just grab a snack or a drink and then commence the hootery + hollerino when the segments over. love that all elite babyyy

I miss Abadon's more gross aesthetic but the Bull Nakano direction they're going in is awesome. It might make them easier to book more regularly too, even though I didn't think keeping them on TV as a zombie would be all that hard.
Abadon has always been pretty vocal online about being more of a Visual Kei artist than exclusively one archetype. I'm really glad they get to show more variety.

I got to see Bryan Danielson vs Okada and Bryan Danielson vs ZSJ live thanks to AEW

I really enjoy camerawork that doesn't jump-cut a dozen times or starts shaking like an etch-a-sketch during every spot. Renee is fantastic as an interviewer and it's great to see another period of Mean Gene style interactions between talent and host.

Also, it's very heartwarming to see Tony Schiavone redeemed in a way that apologists claim about Michael Cole, but in this case is actually true.

It's amazing how many wrestlers and personalities got an amazing second+ act because of AEW. Schiavone, Sting, Billy Gunn, Dustin Rhodes, Jeff Jarrett, Brian Danielson and of course Christian to name a few.
Even CM Punk before he decided to see how flammable his own life is.

For so many years I did not watch wrestling weekly. Too have it back and have it be something I like is a joy I will not easily give up

Even bad episodes of AEW won't get me down on the product cause I know they will deliver again in a week's time. A bad to mid episode of AEW would have at least a couple of good matches anyway.
