    Don't know if it was Ric or poor audio but I have no idea what he was saying. Was he complaining that he wasn't facing Sting?

    Looked like Hangman was injured. Thought he landed hard then he tagged and rolled out. Hope nothing serious, for his sake. Mixed reports online from what I see.

    Shes a writer... who doesn't appear on TV.. you need need an announcement to say she's AllElite. It is just pandering to the marks IMO.

    Another case of getting one over the WWE who she recently worked for up until recently.

    Its a good appointment which will hopefully help the womens division however and that can only be good for business

    Comparing her role vs McAfee is chalk and cheese. He is an announcer, part time competitor, former NFL punter, has an ESPN show and pulled in millions of views.

    Heaven forbid. :P

    I have to say I always find people who use the term “Marks” online to describe fans of anything other then the WWE to be the biggest WWE “Marks” themselves.

    Its such a lazy sad term to use that and it say more about the person using it than the fan base they speaking about.

    Regards,

    Ha. I’m not taking any sides , I’ve been a pro wrestling fan for over 20years.

    im neither pro WWE or pro AEW.. I grew up a fan and will always be one.

    im just not a fan of announcing a staff writer in the way it was done by AEW.



  • Moderators, Sports Moderators Posts: 42,396 Mod ✭✭✭✭Lord TSC


    I think it's a "bigger picture" thing though.


    They're doing the same as they did with Punk, in so far as they've not confirmed it's happening, but are teasing and hinting it in different ways. The naming of the upcoming show is the same as making a big deal of the staff writer signing. In isolation, it seems a bit stupid. In reality, it hypes up Mercedes' upcoming debut, without actually hyping it up. One graphic, and all the news reports are putting Mercedes' name in their headlines alongside AEW's.

    This version of Saraya is brutal, the promo introducing her brother was cringe...poor old zodiac only getting a deal because of her, having been rejected everywhere else for years

    Greetings everyone, (first time commenter). Big Punk (Not CM) and Wrestling fan.

    Honestly did not realise AEW had a good little community here in Ireland and thought I would join myself. Been a wrestling fan for the past 30+ years on and off and been with AEW since the start. Since the original Double or Nothing anyway. Some things I am loving with Aew at the minute are probably:

    • Christian Cage being everyone's da. (Should go up to the liberties where all the fatherless children are, and make a killing on Father's day),
    • Swerve Strickland being one of the most unique guys in the business today. Bonus points now that were all cheering him when he was the one breaking into Hangman's gaff.
    • Osperay & Okada (possibly), coming in. I know Okada isn't at the same level he was with Kenny Omega a few years back but still a big big signing if they get him. And Will being hands down the best wrestler on the planet.
    • Womens div. getting better.
    • The Bucks having finally a new character for the first time in what feels like forever, hope it lasts.

    Looking forward to this weeks Dynamite! Be kind, have a touch of the tism. Cheers lads - Karl

    The 1994 Crow inspired Sting


    The 2024 Crow inspired by Darby Alllin




  • Registered Users Posts: 60,274 ✭✭✭✭Agent Coulson


    Bruv is in the house.



  • Registered Users Posts: 37,717 ✭✭✭✭PTH2009


    Ah prefer a long haired crow not this new age version

    Ffs Ric Flair in a ring in 2024 is embarrassing. He's going too cost Sting isn't he

    Sting from the rafters was cool



  • Registered Users Posts: 955 ✭✭✭Officer999


    Such a bang of Succession off the Buck’s new theme.

    Also very nice of Sting to just watch Darby and Flair getting plummeted first before finally coming down from the rafters.



  • Registered Users Posts: 3,041 ✭✭✭ThePott


    Bit of a whimper of a go home show except for the Sting stuff.

    Sting coming out of the rafters one last time, freaking awesome. TYB's EVP gimmick is really great.

    Get Ric Flair out of here though, looked shite and he adds nothing at this point.



  • Registered Users Posts: 60,274 ✭✭✭✭Agent Coulson


    Tony said they are expanding the PPV’s to 9/10 a year he thinks 9 is perfect himself.

    AEW Dynasty is a POV set for April according to Fightful.

    MJF’s stable in MLW was called The Dynasty and Hammerstone & Holiday who were in that stable with MJF are both free agents.



  • Registered Users Posts: 6 Punk_N_Wrestlin


    Greetings all again, Revolution card looking exciting!

    Hangman and Swerve just have that all time feud energy going into every match I've seen them in, its really helped make Swerve a star and give Hangers an edge that he definitely needed. (Seen shades of it in the punk feud but not enough). Loved his unhinged energy.

    Loved Stings final run with the company, really helped someone like Darby who really kills himself for every match.

    Kind of wish Jericho would take a break to go do Fozzy shite... battle royal looks decent though, hopefully the winner gets a decent run at a title.

    Also technically last week, but dahm that Wardlow promo. Been needing something like that since he beat MJF in 20 seconds. Really hope it helps make Wardlow a legit main eventer and give the UK some cred, hoping for a Roddie / Cassidy killer match to drive it home.

    And finally Bruvs debut! Legit best wrestler in the world in ring. Takeshita a potential star. Going to be whopper!


    Cheers lads - Karl
