Fans were doing the yes chant to CM Punk and he said that's someone else's schtick, and they have to be a little more patient.

Bryan Danielson will be there soon, lol.

I just hope AEW doesn't fall into the trap of hiring too much ex WWE talent and end up having money issues like WCW did.
TNA Impact started off strong with wrestlers like string, macho man, etc.. and we see how that ended up.

Word is USA is not happy with WWE stacking Smackdown. It is the better of the two between it and Raw. I would love for USA to drop Raw. I always thought 3 hours was too long anyway. 3 hours would work if you just had one show a week and got rid of the brand split. But if you are going to split the roster, Raw needs to be 2 hours like Smackdown.

Great match between the Lucha Bros and Jurassic Express tonight on AEW. I was surprised to see the Lucha Bros get the win. They will face the Bucks in a steel cage at All Out for the tag titles. That should be a crazy match.

I can understand AEW going out and getting a few more older marquee names, but they have done a great job of building their own characters and selling them to the audience/viewers. This is the most excited I've been in a while for the art of professional wrestling. It seems almost like NWA in the earlier years I watched them. In late 84 is when I first tuned in to the sport, and the NWA had a very low budget, couldn't get the big names like Hogan/Andre the Giant, but they created big names with their incoming talent from other regional competitors/affiliates. The likes of JYD, Jimmy Valiant, Kamala, Shasta Whatley, Ole/Arn, Barry Windham, Ronnie Garvin were frequent with newcomers Sting/Luger. Humble beginnings for sure but an exciting organization, and just like the NWA at the time, I feel EAW has the right recipe for audience excitement and viewership.

AEW does such a better job of building storylines and building to matches than WWE now. WWE is kind of like the business that thinks it's too big to fail, so it just skates by resting on their laurels.

Awesome PPV and incredible ending. Thank you AEW for making PRO WRESTLING good and fun again.
AEW got the juice now, if it wasn’t obvious before, it’s obvious now. I think what you said is important, AEW is making Pro Wrestling FUN, watching WWE is a chore because they only have 5 good shows a year.

If you were a wrestling fan in the late 90s and early 2000s, I don't know how you can't be excited about AEW now. All Out was the best PPV in years, maybe one of the best of all time. I haven't felt this excited about wrestling since those days of the Monday night wars.

Can't wait for Dynamite tonight after All Out. Wondering what's next for Punk. Are they going to continue the MJF and Jericho feud? Who is next to challenge Miro? What happens now that the Lucha Bros have the tag titles? What do they have in store for Cole, and is Danielson going to challenge Omega next? I guess Baker and Soho are going to feud now. I'm not really a fan of Soho, though.

No kidding they have done a good job at leaving you wondering what's next. I hope we get either the full heel turn from punk tonight or at least the start. Having him turn his back on the fans that waited so long for his return...chefs kiss. Could you imagine the nuclear heat of Danielson about to beat omega then punk hitting Danielson with the GTS.

Match with man with fire pants and Japanese entrance music vs a backstreet boy. And now a cool commercial break with pip so you won't miss a minute of the action, folks!!!!!1!1! I hope they show a Dr. Rick commercial. Subway still sux. And whats with the Starbucks mermaid? So weird. Well we're back. Unfortunately the match didn't end during commercial break. Glad we didn't miss a minute.

Fire pants seems to think taking the knee pad down will hurt the opponent more. Hmmmm. Oh the famous painful knee into the canvas, missing the opponent.

Backstreet boy with a top rope flyover into Hobbs with help from Calvin.

Sloppy cover with Japanese music for the victory.

Entertainment 5

Tazz still sucks

Some people come to the ring with Steveweisers and some people come the ring with a scarf.

Good trashing the host city. Classic heel move.

They seem to be able to use more profanity now than back in the old days.

Ok what did I miss? Wife wanted to make out. Which would never have happened during Monday Night Wars.

There sure are a lot of belts in AEW. This one Elite member is really tan.

Wow!!! Adam Cole!!1 Are you serious right now?!! Who's next, Bob Clark? John Miller? Tom Smith? Lol
