    All Elite Wrestling AEW Dynamite on TNT - 08/01/20

    No thread for tonight? You're slipping, MC.

    I am face palming like a motherfucker at this Nightmare Collective shit. Dr. Luther's debut went over like a lead balloon. This whole women's title match was just awkward as hell. From the start, but especially once Brandi and Co. got involved.

    Yeah they're executing everything poorly. Also Brandi on the commentary was so cringe. Sucks because Kris/Riho started off really hot.

    They really need to show some self awareness and either wrap up this storyline as soon as possible or make some drastic changes to how they're approaching things. Because it's flopping hard.

    Re: All Elite Wrestling Discussion Thread

    God I wish that ending segment had gone down better. I don't think anyone was buying that Moxley was joining The Inner Circle anyways. And I'm pretty sure they ran short so they had to stall for a couple of minutes before Moxley turned on Jericho. Whole thing was just flat.

    And really, I'd say that about the whole episode. Just flat. Nothing on this show that I'll remember in a couple weeks. Certainly not anything I'll remember in a positive light at least.

    This is the first AEW episode where I decided to just turn it off and gave up. I think maybe my love for pro-wrestling in general is really disappearing, sigh, idk w.e

    What the actual fuck is this Brandi Rhodes crap, who approved it? They had a great opportunity for the women's division last night and they absolutely fucked it. The ending felt quite... meh. I really hope they can react to feedback online (they must surely read about it) and get more consistent and not as whacky with some of the booking.

    Its horrible but I’m kinda wanting to know where the hell its going. I wish Statlander would have won but it’s gonna make her win that much sweeter I think.

    I don’t think that there is an endgame for this at the moment. It’s unfortunately just a vanity project for Brandi, which is not enjoyable at all. It was clear that the crowd wanted to get into Riho vs Kris but the title is being overshadowed by this rubbish. Any idea who the weird looking bloke is? “Let’s debut this guy and then let him get beaten up straight away”.

    Hopefully the other women coming out and standing up for the division will result in a match to end all of it. Soon hopefully.

    Excalibur identified him as “Japanese death match legend Luther” which is the only improvement here from it being a repeat of Butcher and Blade’s debut.

    Re: All Elite Wrestling Discussion Thread

    Honestly I think AEW is really losing its way, shows are just becoming such a mess already. Too much nonsense on the show, too much filler, to many dumb gimmicks and stables. Its an Indy WWE with the bosses putting the spotlight on themselves just like the McMahons.

    Re: All Elite Wrestling Discussion Thread

    Honestly, I think they’re missing a trick with Daniels not joining the Dark Order. I’d love to see a return to a more serious Fallen Angel in a high rank in the stable, giving them more legitimacy, eventually usurping Evil Uno. Their dynamic is whack atm. It’s a group of jobbers. They need wins to get over, but then it’d be at the expense of credible workers losing to jobbers. Someone big needs to join that has a good reason to associate with these losers (NOT Hangman, I hate that idea). A frustrated Daniels, feeling like a goofball past his prime in SCU, deciding to join and form Dark Order into his own army sounds intriguing to me.

    I’d like to see that to be honest, this shit with the microphone Daniels is doing at the moment is just cringe for me. Him in Dark Order as the Fallen Angel would be a big improvement and there’d be a natural feud there with Kazarian and Scorpio Sky.

    Re: All Elite Wrestling Discussion Thread

    I’ve pretty much hated everything about SCU since first seeing them together at All In.

    Haven’t liked Kazarian since early X-Division. Daniels is way past his peak but can move well for his age and is still a good talker (even if the SCU pre-match schtick is cringe). Think he looks weird in trousers though. Sky I’ve never really seen outside of an SCU context, but seems good.

    I'm all in on Matt Hardy joining AEW as the man pulling the strings for the Dark Order.

    Even then though you need a guy or two like Daniels to increase the credibility of the group.

    Re: All Elite Wrestling Discussion Thread

    Chalk me in as another who is just not loving this lately. Its not like its become terrible, but its so far below what it has been at points and can be. I completely accept that a company is going to offer different dynamics and not all of those dynamics will appeal to me. But when there is more that doesn't appeal than what does, and what does appeal isn't necessarily being done that well....

    Same complaints as most. The Dark Order stuff is shit. The Brandi stuff and the whole women's division is shit. The Moxley and Inner Circle have both been gold at times, but that segment was massively predictable. It was right out of the late WCW playbook of a super-obvious twist with an overly long setup and nowhere near enough payoff.

    Again, I go back to what Khan proclaimed they would be and how far they have strayed from that.

    I actually do still look forward to it every week, it’s just their failures are more noteworthy than their successes as of late.
