Whoa. There’s nothing in the same universe as Heroes of Wrestling. 

As big of an AEW fan as I am, I’m willing to admit the Christian announcement and the sparklers were badly mishandled. Christian should’ve just shown up like Sting did. 
 

There should’ve been Plan B to get the focus back on the wrestlers rather than the flaming turd that was staring everyone in the face. Have Kenny ready to come out and laugh at Mox for fooling him, whatever. You absolutely cannot leave people with the visual of a Gilberg entrance. 

Yeah the podcast I watch even said this after the show. All they did was have Mox break kayfabe and say Kenny builds a ####ty ring while Eddie is still selling his injuries like a goof ball despite Mox being the one who almost died.

I'm about to get on the road...     to Wrestlemania! I don't have exceptional seats, but I'll take a lot of pictures to share.

My 9 year said he would have liked Nakamura's intro if he didn't have that stupid violin player    but then I hit him with a Kinshasa and he piped down

BAYLEY to belly....big difference guy.

The quicker they move on from that abomination, the better they'll be.  The show was a nightmare overall so it's far the only bad thing about it.....but was a fitting end.

That way isn't not admitting the mistake and trying to make a dumb Kenny the Engineer storyline out of it. But sounds pretty par of the course for Con and Toby Rhodes. If they absolutely want to ever bring it up again, make it a short comedy line from Kingston to Moxley "But I protected you from sparklers"

The end.

I think people have the right to be upset and mad about last night though. Lets get to the bad. 

1. CHRISTIAN CAGE Overhype: This would've been fine had Angle showed up. Cage isn't even bigger then Paul Wight or Sting. This was poorly done and they used a similar gimmick with Jericho in WWE when he came back and didn't talk for weeks. Again until I see what they do here with him I won't bash the actual signing. More bashing the hype they surrounded this with. Christian has some left in the tank and should be able to help some of these younger talents. 

Lets also get out of the way BROCK NOR PUNK WERE EVER COMING!!! AEW last I heard stopped negotiating with Lesnar awhile back when they realized he was solely using them to get a bigger WWE payday. Brock knows Vince is gonna pay him Millions to do 3-4 matches a year and show up once in awhile looking tough while Heyman cuts a promo all while going back and fourth in his private jet. Brock when he has too can put a great match on but why would he when he knows he can act lazy in WWE and Vince can't do a thing? Don't blame him. Punk besides this show he's producing on wrestling doesn't want back in. He's done. I'd legit be as surprised of him coming back as I was when Brock broke the streak. Anyone who thought either of these two was coming back set themselves up for really bad disappointment even if it was Kurt Angle. 

2. The Deathmatch. THere's ways to make this look good despite laws and restrictions. Also when the dud happened Kenny and Don and The Good Brothers should've came out and started laughing. Also when Eddie came in there was too much time left on the clock. He had enough time to pick Mox up (We've seen Eddie pick up larger opponents) and save him. Then our Gillberg Sparklers went off at the end. Just poorly booked. Should've gotten Rammstein to handle the Pyro. 

3. During the ladder match at one point a sky view shows Archer walking around the ring. When they pan a min or two ladder to him he's on the floor acting like he can barely get up

4. The Brass Ring looked like something from Sonic. Not a fan of Sky winning. I like him but I think they could've done better with Max Caster (Even though not a fan of him) or Ethan Page. 

5. Street Fight: Darby did a good job with his editing and it was cool to see the transition of Sting/Starks and how they shot over to Cage/Darby at that door going up the steps. A few cool spots and the environment looked like the warehouse and opening of the RAW is WAR montage at the start of the broadcasts back then. I think this would've been better without commentary as TAZ at the end had zero emotion at the end. Hated the bat break because they don't break like that. I've broken wooden bats before and most of the time they splitter and a huge piece comes off turning the handle looking like a prison shank. 

6.: Could careless about this Kip/Miro and Best Friends thing. Only good thing is I get to see Penelope Ford and that ### which btw TV doesn't do justice too. I've seen her live and she's even better looking in person. She's also an incredible nice individual and she's done some cool for fans at events with disabilities on the indie scene. She grew up 30 mins from me and great to see her make it to national TV. Not sure why Miro left WWE because he's just looks as much of a p*ssy as he did in WWE now but getting more ring time. They really need to break him off and think seeds were planted last night.

7. Commentary: I love JR but his voice was shot last night and they should've had a fill in. Even if Tony and Excalibur had to do it a 2 man booth. They could've had Marvez do commentary too. Excalibur doesn't know when to shut up at times. He's done a better job discussing history of newer talent or history between two wrestlers like in Shida's match but the dude makes ok spots seem better then they were. 

Overall might have been AEW's worst night in their 2 yrs WHICH SAYS A LOT. I think people are disappointed because we expect a better product from AEW. If this was a WWE PPV or even RAW/SDLIVE we'd just say "oh typical WWE as usual anymore." but we've come to expect and have gotten better from AEW. Still last nights show is better then 95% of what WWE produces. Honestly last night was the first time watching AEW that if I was with people who don't normally watched I'd have been embarrassed to admit I like it.

But that's how they've played Kenny up anyway. Plus going back to his NJPW days he always played a role like that

AEW learning it's tough to put 12 of these on a year and tough to tell a story when you have finished up with all of your internet fantasy booking.

Not hating on them, loved what they did early, but if you are just going to bring back washed up WWE alum, I'm out. And no way am I paying $50 for a PPV.

True. Very true.

I guess my bigger point is Tony Khan isn't looking at the market and the trends right now. I like the collaboration with Bleacher Report, but figure out how to make those PPVs $9.99 or part of a bigger sports package. WWE, for better or worse, has destroyed the old PPV model. I don't know, maybe the buy-rates validate the price. 

As for the "hot" signings, I get it, there is no one new that hasn't already been with WWE or Impact or ROH. Again, that business model is dead. Christian Cage gets a nice pop if you don't play it up ahead of time. Don't overpromise and underdeliver. Just deliver.

I think $25 is tops for a PPV of any kind. Hell I can't justify paying $60-$70 a week for these UFC PPVs. I thought they'd have way more free events then they had have or at least thats what it seemed like they had advertised for ESPN+ 

As for signings it's hard to sign anyone. Back in the 90s a 3 yrs contract was tops. 4yrs was pretty crazy and there was also no non compete clauses so you could see one guy in WWF 1 week and the next Week he's on Nitro signed to a big $$$ deal with WCW. Most guys today the main ones have 4-5yrs deals and so a lot of big names are already on new deals. I think Daniel Bryan has a deal till Sept of this year but I haven't heard if he's gonna resign or not. Nakamura's contract I think might be up this year too. If DB wants to wrestle I'd love to see him with AEW and then with the cross promotion with NJPW we can see him in Japan. I'd love to see Bryant vs Taji Ishimori. If they could get Nakamura it'd go a long way too. 

Booking wise a lot of what AEW does makes sense and doesn't insult the viewers intelligence save for last night which to me was a big hiccup. Eddie saving Mox now makes sense for a match with Eddie/Omega if Mox is out for a bit with Renee due soon. They also give little Easter eggs to possible feuds down the line. Everything AEW does with someone is done for a reason. You might not see a payoff for something done in the PPV or on Dynamite till 6 months later but it makes sense though. Proud and powerful being eliminated by Jurassic Express may not play out now but 3 months from now who's to say JE is in a match for the #1 contenders for the AEW Tag titles against say FTR and Tito and Santana come down and cost JE the match. People go "why did they do that besides being heels" "Well remember when they got eliminated in the tag team Battle Royal at Revolution by JE and Proud and Powerful haven't gotten a shot at the titles since?" Oh yeah that makes sense. Just one example of many.

The ending with Sammy coming back and then the MJF thing with FTR/Tully/Shawn Spears and Warlow was amazing. When I saw Warlow wasn't there I knew MJF had something up his sleeve. I really like this stable especially with MJF. First heel I've literally hated because of his antics in years of wrestling. The best part of MJF cowering away is the dude will back it up with his in ring ability. Best Heel in the business 

From dirt sheets and the podcast I listened to for the review the plan with Kenny is to have Swan and Mosse unify their IMAPACT Title belts and whoever wins faces Kenny Omega at Sacrifice who wins the belt. Then Eventually Omega challenges for the IWGP Heavyweight belt the new one.

Yes. Bulldog was my favorite wrestler growing up.

Been watching a lot of him the past couple weeks. I know everyone thinks back to Summerslam 92 as his best, but holy crap his KOTR match with HBK is also incredible.

Thing I love about that SS match, there's a point early in the match where Bulldog does this insane like reverse handspring flip to reverse out of a wristlock. He gets that massive body flipped upside down and lands clean on his feet off one arm. It's legit the most impressive thing I've ever seen in wrestling. I pop every time I watch that. 3:20 in this vid

I will always love the Attitude Era I grew up with, but the older I get the more I appreciate just a good clean technical match kept in the ring. Those two matches are awesome examples of that.

Condolences to Becky Lynch who announced her father passed away this morning. He never got to meet his new grandchild personally. No cause of death was released by her. Very fortunate as every time he was around and they did the documentaries on her and all he seemed like a hell of a guy. Sounds like she had an amazing relationship with him something I wish someday I could get back with my own dad.

RUMOR: AEW had a 3rd party per fightful select do the explosions. They were not apologetic and AEW on Tony Khan's side might file a lawsuit. Moxley went into business for himself to save the thing by cutting the promo. Omega and company were also pissed. Eddie said he didn't know what to do at the end because some pyro still went off and he was protecting himself and didn't realize how bad the explosion was. Significant heat on the company who did this and they might not use them again. 

Practiced earlier in the day and it went off well. From people I talked too AEW is pretty pissed off. What they hated the most was how unprofessional the company was and how unapologetic they were. Everyone in AEW was not happy. This was suppose to be a big moment for AEW and an epic face turn for Eddie Kingston

Dean Ambrose might be lost by WWE because they didn't file the trademark correctly. They filed it the last time without Jon's permission so WWE was found to lie later. WWE needed written consent never apparently owned the Name. Jon has dibs on owning it. if he does end up owning it any SHIELD Merch still sold or anything in Dean Ambrose name would go directly to Jonathan Goodman AKA Jon Moxley if he does apply for it again and wins. So pretty cool for Mox

AEW needs to sign more ex-WWE guys.

And immediately give them title shots. This is literally TNA all over again.

Except TNA had much better TV ratings.....and the ex-WWE/WCW guys were actually draws at some point and/or not senior citizens.

Spent millions to add Stink/Wight/Christian. And ratings have went down (they beat NXT developmental show by all of 50k viewers this week) since they signed them. They've spent months and months of Stink doing pointless interview after pointless interview. Things have been so bad with Miro he probably wishes he were back in that atrocious Lana/Lashley wedding program. :thumbup: 

I distinctly remember Jericho and/or Toby Rhodes saying WWE had "all of 5 guys they'd be interested in" :lmao: I'd venture to say Smash/Trash/Dash/Cash (2 guys that no one has a clue who is who even though they've been on TV for what 5+ years now :lol: ) wouldn't be "two of those 5". Now they're signing all/every ex-WWE talent.

Good morning @Tom Servo

FTR was pretty big outside of WWE. The problem is Tony and company are over selling signings. Today outside signing a top Indie guys almost everyone out there is gonna be Ex TNA/WWE/ROH guy anymore. A lot of people knew Shawn Spears from his Indy days and The Perfect 10 Gimmick (Some people don't realize that was his gimmick before WWE). I think people got turned off by the PPV this week honestly which is ashame. 

However I'd be interested and curious if you were working for AEW who'd you sign that's realistically could come in and be a star for them. Lets make this more interesting and say you can't include Angel/Brock/RVD/Punk/ETC.
