    AEW Dynamite - October 28, 2020

    Anyway... I checked out Page/Wardlow. There were a couple of times when Wardlow looked awkward getting into position for the planned spot, but it was a good piece of business overall. I also got a kick out of when Wardlow threw Page into the corner and Aubrey Edwards had to scramble to get out of the way. I don't think I've ever seen a shoot ref bump before.
  2. Honestly, it's bullshit that either WWE or Cody can claim ownership of Dusty's ideas. There's no good reason for them not to have entered the public domain after his death. Speaking of trademark shenanigans, Brendan Vink got his NXT name this week. Tony Modra was a star player for the Adelaide Crows Australian rules football club during the 90s. Vink is from Adelaide, so it's like if a wrestler from Dallas were given the name Troy Aikman. More importantly, you can't trademark someone's name without their written consent. Needless to say, the real Modra was none too pleased when he found out about it. https://7news.com.au/sport/afl/afl-icon-tony-modra-lashes-out-over-aussie-wwe-wrestlers-disrespectful-act-c-1472889 I hope he knows some good lawyers.

    Is Impact the best promotion in wrestling history?

    Watching from afar, Deonna seemed to have plenty of steam left as champion, so I doubt her losing at BFG was the plan all along. It seems more likely that they were following the longstanding tradition of putting the babyface over in the event of an unplanned last-minute replacement. TNA did the same thing at BFG 2005 when Rhino beat Jeff Jarrett for the NWA title after Kevin Nash wasn't medically cleared to compete. He then dropped the belt back to Jarrett at the next Impact taping. We'll know that's what happened if Su Yung does something similar.

    WWE TV 10/26 - 11/1 Afa and Sika endorsed the Usos getting beat up

    Since they're so keen on appropriating WCW IP, they should call the next Takeover SuperspreaderBrawl.

    So this happened on Raw: Some people took issue with what they thought to be WWE making light of epilepsy, so Mia Yim Reckoning clarified on Twitter that it was supposed to be a possession and not a seizure: Just what Retribution needs. Some Fiend bullshit.

    WWE Hell in a Cell 2020 - Family Feud

    Ricochet may not be much of a talker, but he had enough charisma to become a featured star in PWG, Lucha Underground, Dragon Gate, and everywhere else he worked prior to WWE. Cool moves alone won't cut it because guys who can do cool moves are a dime a dozen in those companies. And to go back to my earlier comparison, OC has shown that it's possible to get over huge without cutting a single promo. If WWE can't do anything with you unless you can deliver 20-minute soliloquies every week, that's a company failing.

    If nothing else, this will hopefully put an end to the "Kylie must have been bullied/assaulted/something scandalous in AEW" whisper campaign.

    WWE Hell in a Cell 2020 - Family Feud

    If you look at the top guys in New Japan and AEW, the only ones who were main event stars a decade ago are Hiroshi Tanahashi and Chris Jericho. And Jericho has reinvented himself so many times that he doesn't really count. Kazuchika Okada, Kenny Omega, Kota Ibushi, the Young Bucks, Jon Moxley, and Cody Rhodes have all worked for WWE, TNA, or both. It hasn't been lack of main event talent that's prevented promotions from creating new stars. The issue is incompetent booking. To take another example, compare WWE's treatment of Ricochet to AEW's treatment of Orange Cassidy. The former has been buried six feet under for so long that I literally can't remember the last time he was mentioned on this board while the latter has become a breakout star and a genuine ratings draw. Talent can't explain why their careers have had such disparate trajectories.

    WWE Hell in a Cell 2020 - Family Feud

    Here's a statistic that was brought to my attention. October 25, 2010: Randy Orton is WWE champion and Miz holds the Money in the Bank briefcase. October 25, 2020: Randy Orton is WWE champion and Miz holds the Money in the Bank briefcase. Time is a flat circle. I wonder what Angry Miz Girl thinks about this. Probably nothing since she in all likelihood stopped watching this shit years ago.

    Why NXT keeps experiencing COVID outbreaks is a mystery that will never be solved.

    Now the Observer website is reporting that Kylie Rae wasn't injured after all. She just didn't show up. As in, she was in Nashville ready to work on Friday and didn't come to the building on Saturday. If it's another mental health episode, she really needs to step away from wrestling. I hate to tell someone to stop following their dream, especially at such a young age, but it's abundantly clear that the business is a distraction at best and an active hindrance at worst from her getting the help she needs.

    It's worth recalling that whatever happened with Kylie Rae and AEW began with her being out of action with an undisclosed "medical issue." And if this is an attempt at a worked shoot, they're also working the boys because even talent has no idea what's going on. Regardless of what the situation is, changing up an advertised title match on your flagship PPV with no explanation is incredibly bush league. At the very least, they should have been able to run an angle on the show.

    Rock should've hit Shamrock in the face with a chair for old time's sake.

    AEW Dynamite - October 21, 2020

    Meltzer is also reporting that the impression was a throat injury. If the Brie Bella/Liv Morgan situation taught us anything, it's that women really shouldn't be doing yes kicks, especially green women. The area they have to aim for is much smaller (above the breasts and below the head), so the margin of error is much lower.
