I like aspects of it. I'd prefer less Dusty finishes and less of Cody "reclaiming" his dad's shit by trying to trademark/re-use items from Old School (pre-Bischoff) WCW. I get the drive to do it, but they've got some of the best workers in the business and.....their shows go from "okay this is exactly why this will work" to "What in the actual Fuck?"

 

Honestly, I'd take a million Dusty finishes over WWE's roll-ups and DQ's. It's out of control

 

Empty arena SD was both sad and depressing. Interested to see AEW's take on it

It’s crazy to me that wrestling is going to go on. WWE and AEW, at least.

World War 3 could start and Vince would insist on holding shows.

I’m more surprised that no staff or wrestlers from either brand has a positive case.

Dana Brooke and Rey Mysterio are both quarantined and awaiting tests/results.

I wouldn't be shocked if the WWE goes into hiatus after Wrestlemania.

Seeing that Reigns was a last minute scratch from the card.

That Boneyard Match was the best thing WWE has done all year. More of that!

It makes the earlier parts of Wrestlemania look that much worse too

Wrestlemania 36 is the first wrestling show I've watched in a good five years and let me tell you... it did not inspire me to watch any further at all. I get the circumstances but geez when we get an slugfest between Edge and Randy Orton that went on way too long and had awful editing and bad camera angles... yet our main event on night two was literally 3-4 minutes..... yep I don't feel inspired to start watching again beyond what I just watched.

AEW may have aired the funniest match I have ever seen last night. It's been 12 hours and I'm still laughing from that main event.

 

 

The rest of the PPV was pretty damn good too. Felt like a higher caliber of wrestling from their weekly shows even with the current restrictions. Well done.

Just finished double or nothing. Show was decent. I thought it had 4 good matches (MJF/Jungle Boy, Nyla/Hikaru, Moxley/Lee, and stadium stampede) the other half was kind of meh.

Interested to see where they go from here.

Remember when they said wins and losses mattered when it came to who gets title shots? And then they handed Luke Harper and Brian Cage title matches as soon as they got there.

I don't know if you guys have been following the #SpeakingOut hashtag on twitter or not, but it's a lot.

 

I knew the wresting business had a seedy underbelly, but goddamn.

Yeah, though honestly not a ton of surprises.

Impact is.....good now?

I checked it out last night for the surprises, but honestly wasn't impressed by the show overall. I feel like the covid-era actually helps them presentation wise (basically on par with WWE), but beyond that it didn't do much for me unfortunately.

Just dropping in to say AEW just had the best covid-era wrestling show that's been made thus far. What an insane show. So so good.

AEW has really been killing with this streak of good shows they've been doing, and the best part is as good as some of the matches have been, they still have a ton of huge matches they can do later down the road.
