I said that and people called me a hater and a WWE shill 🤷🏾‍♂️
AEW fans can't conceive of legitimate criticism. As far as they're concerned the only reason not to like AEW is if you're a WWE fanboy, despite the two promotions being more similar than any two major promotions have ever been.

My two favorite mcguffins of the past 10 years are the “Bound for Glory” points series and the “Gift of the Gods” championship.

It's a secret soviet weapon. if enough autistic adults continue watching the program, it will "hatch" and give you all seizures. Cyber Soldier Porygon's revenge style. Please stay tuned into the program, Norton, and you will finally see the end that your empty golem soul is due.

After Seth Rollins defeated Finn Balor, a fan jumped Seth as he was heading up the ramp. The TV cameras caught a glimpse of it before turning away. Not part of the script, that person was arrested and escorted away.

When I saw the video this morning it looked like it was an extra coming from backstage. But I guess the guy jumped the guardrail.

I would comment but I don't have a clue as to what Sonichu medallion is.

Couldn't help but notice in last night's AEW Dynamite show there was someone ringside wearing a white and blue SNK t-shirt:

The cardiac event that Triple H suffered earlier this year was described as “very, very, very serious” in a report by Dave Meltzer on Sunday. Meltzer indicated that Triple H had not yet returned to his regular role with the company and it’s unknown when he’ll be back.

Triple H underwent heart surgery to fix a genetic heart issue. The WWE issued statement said that he would make a full recovery.

Done with AEW. Cody Rhodes is now putting up a really good fight against VKM for the title of dumbest motherfucker in pro wrestling, which is saying a lot when Billy Corgan is over here booking Trevor Murdoch as his champ.

I know TK's technically head booker, but the way Cody and Brandi were booked today, that's not normal, had to be Cody leaning pretty heavily on the book. Andrade's just been utterly buried since he came over, what a waste. If it ultimately leads to Cody turning heel and I read about it, I guess I'd consider watching it again (but at this point, I'd have incredibly low expectations for anything he does, Roman Reigns he is not), but that was just, so bad. SO BAD. I mean c'mon, Cody's already hated as is and Brandi's only remaining goodwill is because she hasn't been on the show in a year.

Either Tony's as dumb as he looks and no one is willing to tell him otherwise (seems entirely possible since he signs the checks) or this will be the second slowest-played heel turn ever (maybe possible? I dunno, best-case scenario I guess, but again, who'd care, it's two ciphers who shouldn't be on TV at all regardless).

C'mon, the fans savagely booing Cody while he almost cries is fantastic. I lost my shit last week when the fans through the belt back. Either it's a work to be slowly turning into AEW's Triple H, or Cody really is delusional, and either way I am entertained.

This current odd feud of Cody/Black/Andrade/Pac fighting each other just because they don't have anything else to do needs to end though. A Black vs Pac feud without the other two would be money.

Two wonderful perspectives. I wish AEW/WWE wasn't so awful so I could watch it for the "good parts". The investment just isn't worth it to me.

I will also say that Cody is one of the best at creating and working a gimmick.

Fuck, he even got Stardust over.

There is something to be said for streaming wrestling programs and just fast forwarding the crap you don't want to watch. It's probably the better way to watch to be honest.

If you have to do that, it's a sign the show itself sucks balls and your time would be better spent doing something else.

AEW fucking blows almost as hard as WWE, and that isn't easy.

I did the fast forwarding thing for years.

The problem is that I don't know what will be enjoyable (to me) and what will be bad.

The types of things I like (in ring match storytelling, self contained episode plots, edgy characters) are such a rarity in modern "Sports Entertainment" that it is a mistake when they actually happen on the big stage.

This is every wrestling show like, ever. Even in your beloved ROH is like 50% shit while I'm waiting for the Jay Lethal match.

Sounds like you should never have been watching any wrestling to begin with.

So someone shouldn't be a fan because they don't like the *exact* thing your autistic brain thinks is the only acceptable way a show should be made? Okay. How about I just skip ROH until the better guys make it to a better show like I've been doing for the last 19 years?

No, my point is that if there are zero wrestling shows you can sit through without fast-forwarding then maybe you should just watch something else entirely.

It had nothing to do with ROH specifically. You would drop any other show you watched if you had to fast forward through half of it or more just to sit through it.
