    Welp, this one has the more posts now

    A weaker looking episode. Don't care about Jericho cosplaying as his younger self at all and have no faith in Madison/Jade. Darby/Brody and the Extra TalentED implosion should be fun at least.

    Hoping FTR's appearance outlines their plan for the PPV, but get the feeling it's gonna involve the 6 man titles.

    Darby vs. Brody should be hella fun. Thinking Miro gets involved maybe?

    Ricky Starks

    Not fussed about Jericho against Moxley. Feel like they should be building other talent up into the world title scene.

    What I do like about Jericho/Moxley is that it has been close to three years since it originally happened, and it's fun to look at how much they, along with the entire landscape of AEW, has changed in that time. There's been a ton of crazy shit happening between that changed the company from how it was then, to how it is now. Basically going from a burgeoning company with a ton of hype and hopes surrounding it, to now being an established part of the wrestling landscape.

    Re: AEW Dynamite - August 10, 2022 [Quake By The Lake]

    Jericho is a perfectly fine fill-in challenger to get us to Moxley's All Out feud. I have zero problem with it if this is as far as it goes and then we have something better to pop up for the next few weeks. He's also rebounded from terrible to average this year and Mox is having the best year in the biz so they might be able to put together a strong main event. That said, the big draw tonight for me is definitively Brody and Darby in what I'm sure will be an excellent car crash match.

I think I'm going for a Bucks and Hangman or Omega Vs Best Friends final because I think House of Black will be doing their Sting/Darby/Miro blow off at All Out.

    Moxley/Jericho and Darby/Brody were good matches that didn't blow me away. I preferred the Brody/Darby July match as it was less plundery, but that was a great blade job by Brody. Great to see Punk come back so that we know our direction for All Out and can end the interim world title stuff.

    the Punk surprise would of been even better if Tony didnt allude to it on Social Media

    Re: AEW Dynamite - August 10, 2022 [Quake By The Lake]

    I found this to be one of the less engaging episodes on the whole. I also had a bit of an issue with stuff like Penta just dropping the whole Oscuro thing out of the blue and FTR backing up Wardlow, even though in wrestling I guess you can just chalk it up to good guys helping another good guy, but hopefully they give some elaboration on what prompted that in weeks to come. Could be a fun little Pinnacle tie-in if they go that route. But as it is, things like that seem pretty slapdash and could be done more effectively.

    That said though, I think the show had two really good matches with the opener and the main event. The Coffin Match was something I was greatly looking forward to and it started out nearly ideal. I wish they would have saved the HOB/Sting hijinks for after the match though, cause it did derail the momentum of the match itself. The main event couldn't have really gone any better I feel, considering it's a Jericho title match. He brought it once again here, like he did against Kingston, and he's really done a lot to restore my faith in him after a pretty unenjoyable 2021. Nice ass match honestly, and of course I can't wait for Mox/Punk at All Out.

    Outside of the opener and main event, bleh episode. However, Rampage looks horrible! Feel sorry for the live crowd - jobber filled shows. Surprising, since they’re in a big market.

    They (commentary) probably should've reminded us of their Pinnacle time for sure, but during the MJF/Wardlow feud, FTR didn't back up MJF because they said "Wardlow was their friend" or something along that lines so there's enough canon there for me to not see this as just some random face ally thing.

    Yeah I think that's totally fair. I'm sure they will drive it home in the coming weeks anyways. I just think it's one of those things that AEW could stand to tighten up on, because not everyone is keeping all this canon in their minds when watching the show.

    The funniest thing was that report from the dude in attendance a couple of weeks back. He said they tried to play a video three times and it wouldn’t work so half the crowd just got up and left. Like, how can they not have competent people working there to make sure the play button isn’t broken?

    Also, there were some totally obvious Tony-bots in that guys comment section, saying he was a liar and that it was a packed house. Someone that was there posted pictures and it was basically empty.

    I can’t believe there’s pro-AEW bots out there. Who would pay for such a wildly expensive thing?

    EDIT: I have to assume the tweets comparing the Mox/Punk stare down to Rock/Hogan and Austin/Hogan are bots as well, because if not, hoo boy. It’s things like this that make it very difficult to take AEW seriously.

    I know I'm sounding like a broken record at this point but... fuck it... If the shit you're seeing at these places annoys or puts you off... Stop fucking going there. Or at least just admit that you love the ridiculous takes because it gives you some strange fuel to do your Silk-style "dunks" on AEW and Tony Khan.

    There are literally bots out there spewing nonsensical shit about everyone and everything, so why you'd fixate on this is beyond me.

    I can't tell you how/what to post, but it would be nice to at least get some takes on the show itself out of you and Indy, rather than the repetitive critiques of AEW on a structural and cultural level. I mean, Silk had like one sentence disparaging the presentation of WWE in her Raw post, and that was an issue for you... But at least she spent 3/4 of the post actually talking about the fucking show, like the threads are meant to be there for.

    There are literally bots out there spewing nonsensical shit about everyone and everything, so why you'd fixate on this is beyond me.

    Also, there were some totally obvious Tony-bots in that guys comment section, saying he was a liar and that it was a packed house. Someone that was there posted pictures and it was basically empty.

    I can’t believe there’s pro-AEW bots out there. Who would pay for such a wildly expensive thing?

    EDIT: I have to assume the tweets comparing the Mox/Punk stare down to Rock/Hogan and Austin/Hogan are bots as well, because if not, hoo boy. It’s things like this that make it very difficult to take AEW seriously.

    That sounds pretty bad lol. AEW should learn from WWE here. putting a smaller show after the bigger show or even an the same card as the main show is a recipe for disaster. nobody wants to sit that long. That plus the scew ups..no wonder people walked out

    Pretty solid show I thought, the opener rocked and the main event was better than I expected. I didn’t see Tony’s tweet about regretting not watching the show if we missed out, so I was pleasantly surprised to see Punker back and I can’t wait for the inevitable Mox vs Punk match.

    Genuinely any amount of detail about what you saw on the show would probably be sufficient. The fact that you had no take on the return itself, in terms of how it went down and what it means going forward, and instead only noted how Tony Khan's tease of the return ruined it for you, really says it all to me. I mean, I would probably give the benefit of the doubt to most posters, but the way that trying to shit on Tony Khan has basically consumed your entire persona recently kinda seals the deal.

    What can i say? i dont like shit ruined for me. Tony is the one who said you ll regret missing the show....should i direct my opinion somewhere else? he said it.... not JR, Not Taz, not Excalibur.

    I even said the fans were hyped. Not being a Moxley fan, i dont really care about the world title picture.

    im not excited for trios titles either

    i did enjoy the tornado tag.

    im not big on the fact there was blood in two matches when there was no need for it.

    im not a fan of Luchasaurus so his squash did nothing for me.

    edit: I watched Claudio vs Takeshita that was really good match...but it was From BOB 3

    Re: AEW Dynamite - August 10, 2022 [Quake By The Lake]

    My top favourites in AEW are Cole, Red Dragon, Moriarty, FTR, Danielson, Lethal, Pac and Garcia. they re hardly on the shows because AEW is over stacked. Im also more into matches than segments.

    i dont care for Best friends, House of Black, Moxley, Adam Page, Darby Allin and Sting, Penta, Bucks, Jerichos society, Team Taz, Starks and Hobbs etc. the entire women division,

    So yeah with their over stacked roster, theres going to be a lot of shows i dont care for.

    i hate the booking of Lethal as well.

    How many times has Samoa Joe been on AEW Tv since he signed? But we’re shown Madison Rayne, Aaron Solo, Sonny Kiss, Paker Bodreaux, and Ari Davairi matches this week.

    I don’t know about Joe, PAC or Spears but Santana is out with an injury right now and Ortiz was there amidst the scuffle at the end of the show. Not in a match yeah, but he was there and if I had to guess about Spears, him and his wife are expecting their first child so it’s possible he’s taking some personal time off.

    I don’t mind seeing the likes of The Factory or Sonny Kiss on the show because it’s someone different being featured rather than the same faces.

    I thought it was a good show in general. The main event was super fun and I was really impressed with Jericho considering I went in very unexcited. CM Punk's return was a great way to end it and boy that match with Mox is going to be great.

    I thought the rest of the show was fun and inoffensive. Thinking Kenny must be the partner for the Bucks? They really haven't done nearly enough to get us invested in the Trios tournament.

    Also excited for Black vs. Miro when we eventually get that and it was nice to see Buddy back.

    It's almost as if Ortiz was on TV last night. and PAC is overseas I believe AND in the trios tournament. Samoa Joe is likely taking some time off. Not everyone has to be on TV each week.

    Not everyone has too but thats why i have a hard time getting into AEW. the majority of guys, i dont care about and they re regularly in matches weekly or bi weekly. When was the last time Kyle Oreily had a match?

    not every week sounds fine but when its almost 3 weeks, i see that as an issue

    I may be in the minority on this but I hope Rampage is eventually 2 hours and possibly also live. I'm in the camp of having no issue with guys getting cycled out for stretches of time here and there, but I think the company could use that extra hour of TV time with the roster they have, and it probably would be useful to make some segments not feel so rushed as well.

    Young Bucks aren’t on TV each week. Sammy Guevara, Hangman Page, Brody King, and almost every one isn’t on TV each week. Why is Samoa Joe taking time off? He didn’t have enough time off the first quarter of this year?

    I'm well aware that the Bucks, Guevara, Hangman, Page, Brody, and other guys aren't on TV every week. Joe could take time off because he's not in any stories atm. It's also only been 3 weeks, he doesn't need to wrestle regularly at this point in his career.

    Two hours or at least one hour in a better timeslot. Right now Tony seems resigned to it's ceiling being limited by when it airs and the original intention of making it just as important as Dynamite has clearly fallen by the wayside. Till that gets sorted I suspect Rampage has become a fun supplemental show instead of essential viewing anymore. That said with the Dynamite ratings as consistent as they are, he may be able to pitch a case to Warner Discovery that if Rampage got a better timeslot he could get that number up, so we'll have to see how that oh-so-fabled new TV deal eventually shakes out.

    I thought it was a good Dynamite last night. Punk's return an obvious oh-shit highlight aside, Mox and Jericho did manage to have a quite good main event even if the Walls of Jericho got thoroughly buried. The opener with Brody and Darby was the match of the night for me, as even with the extensive mid-match interference it was non-stop entertainment. Not a four star match but an excellent bit of car crash TV.

    Don't think the night had any real blemishes, just not a ton of knockouts either (just Madison Rayne, amirite). The All Out picture is, importantly, starting to come into view however and it looks like a pretty good card shaping up.

    Show over delivered on what was advertised. Jade/Madison was still not good but was at least an improvement over Rampage. Jericho/Moxley was better than I thought it'd be. Glad Punk's back in time for the PPV.

    Trios tournament bracket is disappointing considering what they have at their disposal.

    I'm not even touching some of the stupidity in this thread.

    It's not strange when you and Shrimp are naming off X wrestler not being on tv as a complaint when they're injured. Also, not sure if it's an age gap thing, but you realize a lower cap lol doesn't mean I am literally sitting there laughing out loud, right?

    Like EC said and how I'm sure others feel, this whole anti-Khan agenda you've got going on is so tiresome.

    There are literally bots out there spewing nonsensical shit about everyone and everything, so why you'd fixate on this is beyond me.

    I can't tell you how/what to post, but it would be nice to at least get some takes on the show itself out of you and Indy, rather than the repetitive critiques of AEW on a structural and cultural level. I mean, Silk had like one sentence disparaging the presentation of WWE in her Raw post, and that was an issue for you... But at least she spent 3/4 of the post actually talking about the fucking show, like the threads are meant to be there for.
    So, at the risk of also sounding like a broken record, I'm not annoyed by those idiots in the slightest and am totally laughing at how dense they are. I'm not trying to dunk on Tony Khan either, seeing as he's more than capable of doing that to himself on a regular basis.

    I'm posting that shit to show how stupid they are but also trying to make a point that some people could easily find things like that off-putting and therefore tune out before they've even tuned in. I mean, one only has to look at some of the responses Kat Dennings got to saying she was watching Raw to see the total lack of self awareness on display from these folks. The point still stands that, while I'm used to it, others are not, and it's really not a good look to have these sort of lame brains attached to your product. Then again, as you say, there's lame brains doing this for pretty much everything out there.

    As far as yesterday's show goes, I haven't watched it yet, which is why I didn't comment on it at all. I was merely bringing up the hilarious gaffe with the Rampage video, seeing as Rampage had been brought up in the thread. I felt it was valid, and you have to admit that not being able to play a video is pretty fucking funny.

    When I get to Dynamite this week (probably tomorrow) I'll be sure to comment on the things I liked and disliked.

    Well I do find it funny to imagine a guy sitting there watching the production team repeatedly try and fail to play this video, then he looks at his watch and is just like "I don't have time for this shit", so he just gets up and leaves. Also pretty amusing to imagine Kat Dennings' confusion at what I can imagine we're some completely unhinged comments in response to her innocently trying to enjoy some Raw.

    Im expected to follow an uncited, 3rd party dirtsheet, for injury news? Unless they mention it on air, how would a “reasonable” fan be expected to know about someone’s injury status?

    Old Man Jim says that back in the day, we didn't even know if someone was injured or even out of a company! Thanks to video releases or video games, a fan may be under the false impression that wrestler X may still be with a company months or years after they left.

    Sure, some third party website may not be ideal for following news, but man...fans today are spoiled today when it comes to being able to easily follow what's happening to the talent involved in said company by merely relying on a third party site.

    I'm trying to think of even one wrestler injury that was reported back when I was a kid. Off the top of my head, Brutus Beefcake comes to mind, as I believe the parasailing accident may have received actual news coverage.

    Yes the parasailing incident was explained on air. Back then, guys were written off tv when they got injured

    I don’t really look at anything besides PWInsider every once in awhile, so if someone is injured, it’s news to me. To my point, Samoa Joe has had like a handful of matches since April and he didn’t have a job from January to April, so I would rather see him on tv than Sonny Kiss, the Factory, or the Trustbusters.

    Seems like a pretty safe bet to me given his age and injury history that Joe is likely only wrestling on a very limited basis.

    AEW does keep things almost annoyingly close to the vest regarding injuries but basically every time someone of note is off TV for a long time it comes out eventually that they were rehabbing an injury, so I usually just assume that to be the case when someone goes MIA for a bit. Of course they did an entire segment last week emphasizing that Adam Cole and KOR were hurt so if you somehow missed that, it's on you.

    I didn’t mention them in my posts. Though there is “no way to tell” if those are legitimate injuries, since it’s pro wrestling

    Re: AEW Dynamite - August 10, 2022 [Quake By The Lake]

    I ain't gonna stand for this Sonny Kiss slander, how dare.

    While it would be nice to have Samoa Joe appear more regularly, considering his age and his injury history I wouldn't be surprised if he's taking a more limited approach. Can't blame him. They can bill his rare appearances as one of those 'special attraction' things, make it so a Joe appearance itself is a reason to tune in.

    I'm not high on The Trustbusters or The Factory (though with the latter they serve their role as low-low-lowcard threats and everyone involved is serviceable enough in the ring with some kind of potential, not so much with the former) and quite frankly Trustbusters being in the trios tourney instead of The Wingmen makes me want to write an angry letter to Big Tony, but they've got their purpose. Trustbusters are in the trios tourney, so they should have a few minutes of TV time to introduce them to the TV audience and give a reason for being in the tourney, and Factory are currently in a storyline to build Ricky Starks up. I imagine once they've served their purpose they'll be back on Dark for the foreseeable future. Joe's fantastic but a random Joe match without a storyline attached - and you could make the case that he SHOULD be getting into his next storyline with, idk, Angelico or whoever you want and therefore should be getting TV time to emphasis this and I'd be in agreement with you if that were the case - would only be taking TV time away from matches and segments connected to storylines. There's no harm in showcasing some of your lowercard talent in stories, build them up even a bit so when they lose it means something.

    More Sonny Kiss please and thank you

    That sounds amazing. I wonder if Garcia can top his match at PWG Long Way to the Top vs Gresham. My current singles MOTY

    Re: AEW Dynamite - August 10, 2022 [Quake By The Lake]

    Coffin match was really fun and Miro's subsequent promo (and everything he's done) is a master class in an expert making the best while stuck working with amateur hour material (House of Black). The rest of the show was fine, thought the women's match was very bad but it's Jade so my expectations were incredibly low. Lucha tag was good for what it was in a mindless tornado match. I think Rush motivated has constantly been money since coming to AEW and has outshined Andrade quite frankly, although the months of Andrade's lackluster booking doesn't help him. Lucha Brothers are still a great TV team, the crowd goes nuts for them.

    The Young Bucks are awful actors. There has never been a single scene in any episode of any season of Degrassi that was worse acted than what Matt Jackson pulled out in that backstage scene. Even Hangman looked like he was about to laugh at any moment at that crap. Ultimately it doesn't matter because Omega's coming back next week and they'll probably have a crazy match and the crowd will go insane but it was still bad and shouldn't have aired.

    The main event is where things went off the rails and just like every other down period in AEW history, look who is in the middle of this shitshow? I'm really tired of watching this company turn into a weeks long jerkoff session where one guy is bigger than the show, and it's the same guy who constantly has the worst men's matches and laughably bad stunt fests. I don't think his critics are always completely fair. But I can't for the life of me understand what Khan is thinking letting Jericho turn AEW into his own personal playground over and over where he can go through all his old gimmicks and put himself in spots he doesn't deserve while trying to get heat to rub off on himself from whoever the hottest act is in the company at a given moment. He just can't help himself. When he was champion it was bad. But it's bordering on unwatchable to see the return of the Lionheart have a 2 minute commercial in the middle of his big move, and even Mox feels like he lost interest with that obvious blade job. Bad stuff, but again it doesn't matter since Punk came back and it felt like a huge moment. They've effectively set the stage for next week to be huge with Omega's return, Punk and Bryan both back. It should be noteworthy at least.
