  1. I'm still holding out hope that they are, in fact, Tozawa's ninjas after all.

    I was wondering if the finals were going to be Gresham vs Lethal.

    I like how they only get a limited number of rope breaks. I'm interested in seeing a match now where all rope breaks are used and they can just the ropes in their submission holds after that I suppose. The Gresham match had a cool spot where he applied some kind of Indian deathlock and Wheeler Yuta got to the ropes and they announced he used up one of his rope breaks. Gresham had trouble breaking the hold right away and needed the ref to help untangle them. This made Yuta mad and he punched Gresham, and they announced he only got one warning for the punch. It's a different kind of match so I am interested in seeing what else they can do with it.

    Dont forget Chainsaw Charlie. I loved that angle on Raw when the outlaws put him and Foley in the dumpster and pushed it off the stage.

    I was worried when Cody dropped the TNT title to Brodie Lee, but I enjoyed the Dustin match, and really like the match where Brodie won it, so now I am interested in seeing what match Brodie has next.

    I think the Page/Omega story is my favorite part of AEW right now. The tag division is much more interesting to me than the singles division right now. I'm curious if Cody will do a run in at the PPV somewhere.

    I wonder if part of the problem Is that he is trying to be something he is not. He may be trying to portray a character whereas those older wrestlers unless they were a gimmick were being an exaggerated version of themselves.

    I don't know. It seems to me that whenever new execs enter a company the first thing they like to do is clear away a bunch of projects from their predecessors to make room for the things they want to do.

    I agree with Sleaze. I really want to see more wrestling with no ropes. It all of a sudden feels more dangerous, more interesting. I also liked no commentary. I could do without the music and camera cuts though. In fact, I think they should do the opposite and just use one camera. It would really make it feel different.

    AEW Dynamite - August 5, 2020

    I was surprised when I looked up Orange Cassidy and saw he was already 36. I am glad he is getting this opportunity now, and am very happy that AEW now exists for the young guys there like Darby Allin who I imagine will have the chance to have more opportunities for a great career than in WWE. Unless covid kills the wrestling business of course. I really liked the main event and really like Orange Cassidy 's promo. I also feel like the tag team division is so much better booked than WWE's where it feels like there are a lot of top teams and it's a highlight of the show.

    Rusev says he's done with wrestling

    Is Lana still employed? Maybe he wants to just not rock the boat until her contract ends.

    The Cancellation of Jim Cornette

    I think he said it was Pat Pattersons idea.

    The Cancellation of Jim Cornette

    I feel so much sympathy for Vader after listening to that. As much as listening to the Midnights/Fantastics Clash I watch along made me happy, listening to this one made me upset. If Shawn had been willing to work with Vader than Vader would have had a lot more good matches in WWE listening to Cornette. Of course I realized in hindsight that Corny just does not like Shawn and is probably overlooking the fact that Vader was no longer the same Vader as in WCW and it may not have made much difference in his career. I agree it is sickening to think Shawn was shoot kicking Vader in the head after that botch. That seems uncalled for and dangerous.
