AEW in Norfolk tonight. If I didn't have grad school I'd very much consider going, only a two hour drive and I could stay at my parents lol

Yeah for all the buzz about Penta he's actually pretty average. Those punches are beyond sloppy.

arent they forearm shots? they are not supposed to be punches
Call them what you want either way they looked terrible and pretty much every time someone stands on the second rope and hits the opponent while the audience counts it's a punch.

I watched the Acclaimed vs Lio Rush and Martin, how many freaking kicks to the head do Martin and Rush do in a match? lol. It was entertaining and fast but I can't take Lio Rush seriously as a wrestler, he looks like a kid in his pajamas playing dress up, he's just too small.

I don't watch a lot of WWE so I can't remember even seeing any of Morrison's matches since his return and I don't even know who 90% of those other people are. That's the funny part of being called a WWE fanboy if I'm critical of AEW, I don't even watch WWE on a regular basis, I watch the Reigns/Heyman stuff and maybe one or two other things and some clips here and there but that's it.

it feels like they call up people to trigger the 90 day non compete clause so then they can sack em

cant wait till KO gets away

NXT was always supposed to be developmental for the main roster not it's own promotion, I don't blame them for releasing people that are in their 30's and sometimes 40's who they don't feel will make it on the main roster, you really shouldn't be in developmental for 5 plus years especially if they already picked a lot of these guys up from the indies or other small promotions. I do blame Vince and his team for not doing more with the people they called up, at the same time none of those wrestlers never connected with the larger audience on their own either.

As far as people like Owens, Morrison etc they've pretty much done everything there that they are going to do and they aren't big enough stars to keep around just for the hell of it. Kevin Owens is 37 and Morrison is 42, both have seem their best days IMO and frankly I haven't been interested in either one for years.

Someone else could start a new company with all these released wrestlers.

Avoid the issues that WWE and AEW show weekly and actually have a plan for the talent they hire and you've got a seriously good promotion.


Sounds like Top Dolla single handedly got all of Hit Row released.

And people wonder why 99% of the wrestling world don't care about Daves scores.
