    Is Johnny Elite the guy with most name changes while keeping his character pretty much the same?



  • Registered Users Posts: 22,494 ✭✭✭✭ J. Marston


    It's a clever gimmick. Free to change it wherever he goes while WWE keep the most boring, bland name he has.

    Vince must look at Wardlow every week and curse why he doesn't have him.

    I don't know if there is a trick to applying fake tan but MJF needs lessons if there is. His hands look ridiculous.

    It's more or less too late now but find some other way to build the women's title match without a mic. It's helping neither of them.

    I'd say so, he must be giving Brutus Beefcake a run for his money at this stage!



  • Registered Users Posts: 26,262 ✭✭✭✭ CastorTroy


    Wardlow somehow managing to not even flinch when the whipping seemed pretty realistic.

    He is going to have one hell of a year in AEW putting on some great matches before heading back to Japan.

    Has anyone got a video of the Wardlow lashing? I want to see if I can dub some of the ' Yapapi brother' promo over it

    Found the Jokers underwhelming enough. I like both of them but maybe it just fell short of the hype. It doesn't happen often with AEW tbf so I'll give them that. I think the big pop was definitely because they thought it was Gargano at first. Morrison is someone who I'm just not sure where he fits in, he's a good wrestler but just seems destined for the mid-card in AEW and at this stage it seems like they have too many people there. Maki is great and the crowd really warmed to her, not sure we'll get much more of her for a while but she was great, I loved that turnbuckle spot.

    The Takeshita and Hangman Page match was especially excellent but I agree that Dynamite definitely feels like it runs out of steam by the end. I don't know what the hell that BCC/JAS segment was. Made Regal look pretty lame and uncool IMO but whatever. I don't know if I'm really interested in Young Bucks/Hardys in 2022 tbh.

    I actually think he might be one of the best wrestlers in AEW now and I've only seen a few matches of his.

    He looks incredible, wrestles a great style (those suplexes were fantastic), and is athletic as hell.

    I want to see him just face off against all the best AEW have.



  • Registered Users Posts: 26,262 ✭✭✭✭ CastorTroy


    So is Itoh in AEW now or is she going to only appear randomly like Riho and Yuka. Probably put her with Emi Sakura on the youtube shows.

    Just a trip to the US for some matches. She has a title in TJPW. Yuka is shared and Riho is a full AEW signing, who's just had been injured, had covid complications and then got stuck with pandemic travel rules.

    Quick reminder in case you needed it that Konosuke Takeshita is better than your favourite wrestler. Even how he takes the bump on the G2S was a million times better than anyone has taken it on American TV.



  • Registered Users Posts: 7,299 ✭✭✭ hynesie08


    Give takeshita a manager, and have him beat Joe for the roh TV title and make him the focus of all the secondary shows, he's the next keiji muto to the Americans, that plancha where he was upside down was ridiculous.



  • Registered Users Posts: 7,299 ✭✭✭ hynesie08




  • Registered Users Posts: 2,586 ✭✭✭ RollieFingers


    I'm sure they have but AEW should try and get Jun Akiyama over to even do a tag with Takeshita, would be class. You'd have to do Akiyama/Eddie too if you got the chance of course.

    I've been busy all day so only finishing Dynamite now.

    Please don't say John Morrison was signed? Hopefully just a one off appearance. Both jokers were a let down but as I said yesterday tbf Khan wasn't building up the hype for them so I should have known.

    Hangman Vs Takeshita was brilliant. Takeshita is class.

    The JAS BCC segment was painful. Went on way too long.

    The womens world title build just goes from bad to worse.

    They tried to cram way too much into this episode. Felt like nothing was allowed to breath.

    I still think the build up to most of the DON matches has been awful.



  • Registered Users Posts: 26,262 ✭✭✭✭ CastorTroy


    Rosa's turn for a promo next week. Just let her have a match and Serena come out and attack her during or after. Fighting is what they're better at.



  • Registered Users Posts: 55,574 ✭✭✭✭ Agent Coulson




  • Registered Users Posts: 11,520 ✭✭✭✭ titan18


    They should put the TNT title on him and put it back to being the workhorse title so he can have 6/7 great matches with it.



  • Registered Users Posts: 6,103 ✭✭✭ cactus mac88


    I've complained a bit about the build up to Double or nothing but now that more matches are being announced, I have to say the card is looking very underwhelming and probably the worst AEW PPV card in some time. Anyone else feel the same? Might be the first AEW PPV I haven't bought since 2020 and I'll keep my money for forbidden door instead.

    Big Damo



  • Registered Users Posts: 6,103 ✭✭✭ cactus mac88


    After watching Rampage, the TNT title stuff just gets worse. It'll only be worth it if Miro comes back and batters everyone involved.



  • Registered Users Posts: 26,262 ✭✭✭✭ CastorTroy


    Don't they know they need to put their hand on the head of the sledgehammer before hitting anything? So another new TNT title incoming though they did have the interim title as well.

    Trying to remember, was there any hint of Anna getting involved with Jade before now? Or is she just friends with Ruby?

    Big Damo appearance.



  • Registered Users Posts: 2,773 ✭✭✭ Cherry_Cola


    I get why they're doing Bucks/Hardys again for a bigger audience but since he owns ROH I would love it if Tony just played their match from Supercard of Honor 2017 when both Hardys could actually move fluidly. Zero interest in seeing them go at it in 2022.



  • Registered Users Posts: 2,366 ✭✭✭ ThePott


    The build has definitely been the worst of any of their PPVs. It definitely does reek of them trying to get more people on the card with some of the matches too. I've found some of their PPVs are too long anyway so not exactly a fan. I'm sure as always even the poor ones on paper will overdeliver but it definitely is the most underwhelming so far in my eyes but I'm sure it will deliver.



  • Registered Users Posts: 6,103 ✭✭✭ cactus mac88


    More matches to come as well. I presume Joe Vs Lethal, the mixed tag with Paige Vanzant and/or a TNT title match.

    Really hope Toni Storm beats Baker on Wednesday but I can't see Britt being left off the PPV. Think it would have made more sense for them to be on opposite sides of the draw and have Toni Vs Britt as the final or Toni Vs Hayter instead of having that as a first round match.



  • Moderators, Social & Fun Moderators Posts: 28,630 Mod ✭✭✭✭ Shiminay


    Seems like an easy money cross-promotional bit :D



  • Registered Users Posts: 2,366 ✭✭✭ ThePott


    Yeah I'm not sure if I'm a fan of the brackets in the women's but we'll have to see. The Joe/Lethal story is something I could do with less of, same with the TNT. Even the Men's tournament, if we get KOR vs. Adam Cole, we had that not long ago in NXT. Joe v Cole would be good but presumably it's gonna have loads of interference. I can't remember if they get a title shot for winning the Owen although the rumour then is that there'll be new titles for the winners of the Owen. If it was for a title shot, I could see Punk winning the title and Joe winning the Owen setting up a championship match between them at All Out.

    Haven't heard anything about the Casino Battle Royale either, so guessing that won't be at DON this year.

    So will Okada appear at the end of Double or Nothing to start the build up to Forbidden Door
