    AEW Fyter Fest 2020 - Night two

    This week's show was an absolute home run. From top to bottom basically every segment was really strong with the 8 man tag and Taz's promo the clear standouts in my book. Hell, I normally can't stand Joey Janela and though this match was really good. Just a terrific 2 hour television program. Oddly enough I've watched NXT first the past couple weeks because I was more interested in Sasha/Io and Cole/Lee than anything in AEW. Next week is a bit of a toss-up between Io/Nox and Mox/Cage so we'll see who comes out ahead in my house.

    Times like these I wish we still had a like function.
  3. This eye business really feels like peak Death of WCW. I can't argue with those pointing to all the movie matches as more of the same, but at least there's an argument that they're trying (and already overdoing) new ideas given the empty arena situation. But this? I've got no idea how to defend or spin it.

    I'd imagine it depends on the expense involved with editing them to meet any Network/legal standards, but that's just a wild guess.

    Unfortunately no surprise from someone proactively looking to defend Cornette, above and beyond all others, against any recent accusations. Spare no expense, but leave the memories alone!

    You should check out their match from last year's BOSJ.
  7. Generally agree with the thoughts above. At the end of the day this managed to exceed expectations that were tempered by the fact it was a TV match with all of one week's build with a finish setting up subsequent TV. Give these two a PPV platform and time and you've got potential for a legit MOTYC. What stood out to be here was just how terrific a bumper Banks is. She almost perfectly straddles the line of exaggerating her bumps and sells to maximize the damage taken without becoming at all comical. Just incredible timing and knowing when to extend and cut off those pauses and facials while working on defense. Meanwhile every time Shirai is given more than a few minutes on TV she shows why she's one of the best workers in the world. Hoping we see that rematch one day. ***3/4

    It wasn't nearly enough to suggest that they've hired Kevin Dunn, but it seemed like there were more camera jumps on TV this week than I recall from AEW. Has this always been the case or am I just noticing it?

    Thanks. May consider checking it out at some point then. Always open to paying for big screen rasslin.

    Is this service easily accessible via firestick, PS4 or otherwise on a big screen?
  11. Give me 10 minutes before the shenanigans start and I won't complain too much. Thatcher/Oney should be dope as well. Both have delivered almost every time out here and I see no reason a hot, fast paced match shouldn't happen tonight as well.
  12. Wednesday night wrestling has generally become Thursday/Friday afternoon programming during COVID, but I'll be tuning in tonight for Sasha/Io. Hopefully they're given time without handcuffs to deliver something special.

    Anyone else check this out since the question was posed a few years back?

    When's the last time Low Ki wasn't living on his rep and Hitman gear? I suppose this is one way to get his name out there, but would bet against it working out as he might hope for.
