That sting match was awesome. The exploding bard wire match meh it was ok. Sting match should have been main event

AEW is just awful to me. If everybody from the Elite had their last match last night except Page and Cody, I’d be thrilled.

They screwed up the ending last night with the dud explosion and Eddie selling it like it was still a big explosion and the commentators acting like it, too. Could have easily been solved by whoever was running the show telling the officials in their earpiece to tell Eddie and the commentators not to sell it and act relieved that the big explosion didn't happen. It still would have been effective with the story telling of Eddie coming out to help Moxley. Still, I think it was a great PPV overall, and I enjoy AEW so much more than I did watching WWE the past few years.

That's not a take I've heard much at all, but different strokes for different folks. Why do you think it is awful and is there any wrestling you like more today?

Yeah, it's the opposite for me. I look forward to AEW every week. I haven't watched WWE since AEW started airing on TNT.

There’s just no selling. It’s a bunch of acrobats flying around. Tully instantly became like the fifth best worker in the company after not wresting for 15 something years. The bucks are insufferable and generally awful. Omega is about the same. Marko Stunt would’ve been broken in half by Ole Anderson. They have not built a homegrown star outside of Adam Page. Tony Khan is the absolute drizzling ----- as a Booker.

I don't know how anyone who watched wrestling in the 80s and 90s could prefer WWE over AEW now.
Vince would never have had that abortion of an exploding death match. He wouldn’t have the dark order working and none of the Japanese girls would see the light of day

No homegrown star other than Adam Page? Wrestlers such as Orange Cassidy, Dr. Britt Baker (more her character than her wrestling), MJF (same as Baker), Darby Allin, Jungle Boy, and the Dark Order/Inner Circle Alliances may beg to differ.

Regarding the "Lucha Libre" style high flying acrobatics, there is a lot of that and it is cool to watch. Have you seen Ray Fenix walk the ropes? It is amazing to see! But admittedly it is sometimes overdone at the expense of classic stay in the ring wrestling. I do think they (and probably others) overdo the knock down a bunch of people outside the ring at the same time like bowling pins.

ROH also has a lot of high flying.

I have hardly watched any WWE since Dynamite started. Not enough time and so I mainly stick to AEW.
AEW is Aweome!

As a big WCW fan growing up during the Monday night wars I stopped watching wrestling when WCW closed their doors in 2001. One of my good buddies has always watched wrestling and when he told me about AEW I watched All In and was hooked. Haven’t missed a weekly show nor a PPV. Blows away WWE.

I would have loved to see how AEW would have used Goldberg. But unfortunately that won’t happen since Goldberg is signed with wwe through 2023. How wwe is using Goldberg isn’t really working for most fans.

Vince is the whole reason WWE has been awful for years.

I agree. I am glad something else came along because watching WWE felt like a chore. What did you think of the ending of Dynamite last night?

I loved that ending. I feel like they had to do some damage control after the explosion fiasco. That heel faction w MJF as the head is fantastic. FTR are gold. Can’t wait to see where they go with this. What did or do you think of Christian and Omega for the title? I’m guessing he can still go at 47 years old.

Does the AEW have enough name recognition in the stables to garner more fans, or do they need a few more household names in the industry to come on board with them to grow the organization?
They could use a few more household names in the Women's Division but with the men's no, they're set. I could see AEW getting a few women in WWE in the next few years cause their women's roster is bloated.

Ever since FTR got there and joined with Spears and Tully, I have been saying I would love to see a stable with them and either Cody or MJF as the head for a new Four Horsemen like stable. I thought Cody made sense with him already paired with Arn, but MJF is a great choice, too. He is the best heel they have now. He fits the Flair role, FTR fits the Arn and Ole role, Spears fits the Tully role, and Wardlow fits the Barry Wyndham and Sid Vicious role.
