    Collision on April 6th won't air till midnight due to NCAA Basketball semi finals so it won't go head to head with Wrestlemania either.

    I'm fairly sure he was removed after the world's end ppv and he's gone to have surgery

    Nigel has said on a podcast that he has gotten back in a ring last week and felt ok after it.

    It's happening All In 2024 Nigel McGuinness vs. The American Dragon.

    Ospreay vs. Shibata tonight is one I’m really looking forward too.



  • Registered Users Posts: 60,505 ✭✭✭✭Agent Coulson


    The show opened with a banger and closed with a banger.

    Swerve is the man and Ospreay will be the man.

    That’s the main event of All In 2024.

    I need to see Shibata vs. Takeshita at some stage.

    What exactly was the problem with Nigel, why did he have to retire in the first place?



  • Registered Users Posts: 60,505 ✭✭✭✭Agent Coulson


    A number of reasons, WWE withdrew a contract offer as they deemed he needed major bicep surgery and he didn't want to return to TNA where he contracted Hep B and his body couldn't continue to work the style he was working at ROH so he chose to retire.

    I thnk there may have also been a few concussions as well.

    Ospreay/Shibata and Swerve/Takeshita were so good, lovely stuff. The trios set for Collision looks very tasty too.

    Really good episode for me, I hope they keep focusing more on and killing it with the in-ring action rather than too much storyline garbage.



  • Moderators, Sports Moderators Posts: 42,447 Mod ✭✭✭✭Lord TSC


    Its getting overshadowed a bit at the moment, cause Mania season is the best it's been in a while, but AEW has been firing on all cylinders for weeks now, which is brilliant.

    I really, really hope Swerve gets the title win at Dynasty. It's been a while since I've been so impressed with someone's rise so quickly. He's so good.



  • Moderators, Music Moderators Posts: 14,919 Mod ✭✭✭✭Furious-Red


    Agreed if they don't pull the trigger on him now it will backfire on aew. Also I think for swerve he was able to build himself up slowly, also helps with his in ring abilities but now everyone is behind him.

    Also agree the tv shows have been great overall and hopefully they can start improving their live show numbers



  • Registered Users Posts: 54,067 ✭✭✭✭Headshot


    God damn that was brilliant watch.

    They need to stick rocket to Ospreay and push him to the moon. He's a guy you can build a promotion around. He has everything you want. The fans adore him, he's in ring work in the best in the world, he's promo work just sucks you in and it feels it's so refreshing that's not rehearsed, this is just him being himself

    I absolutely adore Shibata, he's just a fecking bad ass and his story is just so touching.

    That main event, i'm speechless. There's nothing in my vocab to explain how fecking good this was.

    AEW is just rocking it. The wrestling is so fecking good

    Also a shout out to the commentary team on Dynamite, they have such a great chemistry and just bounce off each other. I particularly love Tazz as he always cracks me up



  • Moderators, Sports Moderators Posts: 42,447 Mod ✭✭✭✭Lord TSC


    Osprey vs Swerve is going to be in danage of being very, very overhyped for the Wembley show, but it just screams as havin so much potential to be match of the year. Two of the very best younger (relatively) talents, and you know they’re the type to try and exceed every expectation they create.



  • Moderators, Music Moderators Posts: 14,919 Mod ✭✭✭✭Furious-Red


    Osprey vs Hobbs announced for Dynamite



  • Moderators, Sports Moderators Posts: 42,447 Mod ✭✭✭✭Lord TSC


    per Meltzer…


    • While no decision has been made, it looks more likely than not that Kenny Omega will be getting surgery on his intestines. He’s had his ups and downs but has largely been dealing with a good amount of pain for months now. He said surgery is becoming more and more likely as two different doctors have told him they think it’s the best option. It’s not 100 percent that he will have surgery but it’s looking more likely, particularly if he wants to get into condition to resume his career that he will probably have to get rid of the perforated sections of his intestine and colon. There is an obvious plan if and when he returns to come back into a feud with Kazuchika Okada, and because of the legendary status of those matches, that becomes a situation where he’s going to want and need to get into top shape. We keep going back to Davey Boy Smith Jr. and Brock Lesnar, who both returned at a high level and both of their situations were very bad as well, but Omega’s situation was legitimately life threatening.

    I’d pay to see the CMLL event tonight but it doesn’t appear to be on Fite sadly.



  • Registered Users Posts: 60,505 ✭✭✭✭Agent Coulson


    Found a way to watch and what a wrestling show it was the in ring talent on show was fantastic. Willow was having so much fun.

    Matt Sydal his high flying style was the right choice to replace Yuta and not being a member of the BCC he took the submission loss for team CMLL to win.

    Misitico doing the Yes chant and Bryan doing the No chants had crowd eating out of their hands

    The 16k sellout atmosphere was amazing the roof was coming off the place for the main event, I really want to go to Arena Mexico now I’ve added it to my wrestling bucket list.

    The American Dragon vs. Blue Panther next Friday in Arena Mexico in I think a hair vs mask match. I couldn’t understand the Spanish commentary.
