    I've not watched huge amounts of AEW in the past, so when I watched the Danielson match, where Roberts sounded like a foghorn trying to spit out the words "American Dragon" I immediately remembered how awful he is. Surely they could book Dave Penzer for the same price.

    Brandi giving Black the double finger was hilariously bad. I howled with laughter at that

    Stock Rising/Stock Falling

    I think things like the Kingston love come around to timing. I signed up for the CHIKARA streaming deal in 2016, and I reckon if I'd signed up one year earlier that I'd have found room for Kingston, Quack and Cesaro on my GWE16 ballot. I think stuff like IWTV has helped with availability of footage too. I always liked Kingston, but he was someone I'd see wrestle maybe once or twice a year, because I was rarely dropping £10-15 on one off indy shows. When you've suddenly got access to hours of indy footage for a bargain price, and can see someone like Eddie having good matches regularly for multiple promotions, it enhances their case.

    WWE TV 09/20 - 09/26 New Day vs Bloodline YESSIR

    Bron Breakker vs Ridge Holland feels like a Takeover worthy singles match, assuming Takeovers still exist

    The Danielson stuff I'm really excited about is when he'll be given free reign to go on Dynamite or even Dark, and work surprisingly good matches with people like Sonny Kiss, Alex Reynolds or Billy Gunn's kids. Feels like the kind of thing he'll want to do

    The ending of Swole/Katch was especially yikes, you could see they tried to edit around it

    Randy Orton

    Looking back over this thread, and there wasn't a lot of love for Randy Orton for GWE16, a guy who I ended up putting somewhere in the mid-50s. I think he might rank even higher for me now, he's just a remarkably consistent professional wrestler, who is also capable of some real highs. Things like his 2011, where he had a great series with Christian before selflessly getting dominated by Hall of Pain Mark Henry to kick off Henry's title run. Like 2013, where he had a great series of matches with Daniel Bryan where he really amped up his vicious side and was one of Bryan's best opponents during his WWE career. Even a few years back, when he was booked in a HIAC match with Jeff Hardy that no-one was really excited about, but ended up being really gnarly and having that memorable moment when he contorted Jeff's extended earlobes with a screwdriver. He's not got many lows in ring (bar any time he feuded with Bray Wyatt, but the list of talented people dragged down to Wyatt's level is huge), and he's still putting in good work to this day - the Lashley match the other week was very good.

    Very much looking forward to this, it's as good a line-up of TV wrestling as I've seen in a long time. Not going to watch it live - there's very few wrestling shows that can convince me to stay up until the early hours on a work night - but I'm at least going to try and go into the show spoiler free tomorrow. Very curious about the FTR/Sting match and how it will be worked, and the women's title and MJF matches should both be good. The main event feels like it could join the Fiend strap match in being a real gold star in Danielson's GOAT GWE candidacy for me. If he gets a good match out of a wrestler who's in-ring quirks render him near unwatchable to me, then he's going to be hard to budge as the greatest.

    Is the empire crumbling before our eyes?

    In fairness, he'd not be doing much more in AEW at the moment following his COVID/heart scare issues. In the long run, yeah he'd probably fare better, but I'm guessing his current role is all about getting him back in ring shape, trying out a few ideas and getting him ready for a proper return.

    Is the empire crumbling before our eyes?

    I'm guessing this is a reference to Bearcat Wright, who was one of the first African-American heavyweight champions. It's not a bad sounding nickname, so to me it depends who chose it for Keith Lee. If Lee chose it himself, then that's pretty cool. If it's just Vince and Pritchard going "here's a reference to another black wrestler", then not so much.

    Admittedly I've not seen her wrestle since dropping the "I'm a cat" gimmick, but she's not particularly good. Her vs Swole feels very skippable

    Anthony Henry and Santana Garrett also popped up. Henry faced Kingston, which sounds tremendous

    Stevenson feels like a prefect fit for Diamond Mine

    For a show that started and ended with a 33yr veteran in the ring, I thought the opener absolutely smoked the main event. Dustin at 52 looked better and moved better than Moxley in the main event, and I loved the storytelling of Black playing mind games by taunting Dustin with Cody's boot. They've got something with Black, I really hope they go all in with him and let him beat Cody in the rematch. Never mind Cole looking small compared to the othe Elite members, when he went face to face with Schiavone, I thought "You know, I reckon Tony could take this guy"
