    The problem is that people are only judging him based of a 30 second appearance in a Casino Battle Royal. Anyone who has watched his matches, love them or not, knows that there is much more at play than lightly kicking or chopping an opponent. It's a mind game, how his opponents react to the antics, the fan participation that is involved, what happens when he suddenly tries to win. The mindblowing moves that he can pull off with his hands in his pockets. It's a total spectacle that's getting hate without it being properly explored.

    Cool. But you're missing the point. People are judging without doing so. You at least tried and saw his matches in bigger depth. Tons don't.

    I guess it's like judging a wrestler after one squash without looking into his past and judging and dismissing someone solely based on that. If you got out and watch their best matches and still don't like them, that's okay but do that instead of basing your opinion on a person on so little.

    Orange Cassidy's gimmick is so goofy but I love it lol. I looked up some of his indy matches and was impressed. He may not be everyone's cup of tea but I think he's a good acquisition for the company. Plus, I'd take him over a gimmick like the Librarians, they're so unfunny and boring. Now that's a gimmick that has me scratching my head as to why they're trying to push it.

    Good for them! They will keep selling out too, they're super hot right now. I believe this Monday, they'll announce the next two cities that tickets will be sold for. I would assume one of those cities would probably be New York.

    In a bit of unrelated news, I was watching a wrestling rumors video on YouTube and the host was talking about NXT and AEW going head to head on TV. To cut a long story short, he mentioned something interesting. Go to www.wednesdaynightwar.com. Then go to www.wednesdaynightwars.com. Notice where the two sites redirect to. I'd say both companies mean business come October.

    Oh, this is going to be so so good.

    If only the NXT product wasn't the least interesting the brand has been since 2013.

    Can't help but feel like turning NXT into a 2 hour weekly product is gonna cause it to lose one of it's major selling points.

    I doubt either AEW or WWE would own one or the other of those, somebody probably did that for shits and giggles.

    Seems like the possible options. LAX are fun most times I watch them (baring the Lucha Bros matches) so they'd be a cool addition.

    Yeah, I don't know why I didn't think of that lol. Forbes posted an article about it a few hours ago and apparently one of those demains now directs to The Elite and CM Punk at some video game conference.

    So Tony Schiavone has signed with AEW, he will continue to work with MLW.

    WWE was going after him as well.

    Interesting. Couldn't see WWE wanting him for an on-screen role at the booth which I assume he will do with AEW? Much needed because the third man has been a let down every single time with the commenatry team on each show with JR doing okay and Excalibur being excellent.

    Ugh, why? JR was bad enough, but Tony? I don't mean to shit on him, but really? Why do you need a 3 man booth? It's so tedious and pointless

    Hopefully they use him as a producer, which Tony has repeatedly says he enjoys more than commentating. They 100% do not need 4 commentators and are probably paying him a tonne to come on board.

    I wonder how long before they do an overseas show. I would say a few years but god knows given the demand for them. If it came to England, I might go myself tbh.

    I'm gonna try to catch the Pittsburgh show, that's about 3 hours from me. Wish me luck on landing tickets lol.Tony signs on, that's great! Either he's replacing Alex in the booth or he's taking a behind the scenes role. I think it's a good thing they're going after some of the veterans of the industry, I think it's more about the experience they have along with the big name value.
