    AEW Dynamite - January 15, 2020

    If they introduce a midcard title soon, that would be the perfect way for Darby to finally get his big victory. Especially if Cody carries it for a little while first because then they can pay off their series.

    WWE TV 1/6/20-1/12/20: At least 2019 is finally over

    Jesus, that would be so typical of modern day Vince to waste a Rock match on Corbin of all people
  3. I find stuff like this tough because I like Mick's work and think he was great presence in his day. Some of the bumps and chairshots are hard to watch in retrospect though and the long term influence of that stuff is bad. But then in the same way, do we blame Misawa and Kobashi for Kota Ibushi or Niato taking suplexes on their head? Maybe we do. What about blaming Shawn for the melodrama that overtook the WWE main event style and possibly reached its nadir during the Ciampa vs Gargano feud? That might be a little different because Shawn could well have been agenting those matches. I just think 'blame' is a little bit of a strong word. I can see the argument that, of the previous generation of wrestlers, Foley is one of the most influential on the modern era. I'd probably throw Shawn and Jeff Hardy in there for the US. But I wouldn't blame Mick for the 'irony wrestling' bullshit we see on the indies so much as I would blame social media and the modern attention economy. And comedy is funny with good performers and good characters with good material. It isn't Mick's fault that current WWE doesn't have that combination - that's on Vince.

    If the secondary show is a place where they can stretch out a bit and air some of those great promo packages that have mostly been consigned to youtube, that would be great. Those, some studio-style promos and two lower midcard matches would be the perfect format.

    There is a perverse amusement to seeing Vince turning into Inoki though

    "Triple H shoots himself in the foot" thread

    HHH should know better given that he's married to the literal inventor of feminism

    Also in fairness, sure anyone paired with The Fiend is going to die a death

    If there's a wrestling show on network television but nobody talks about it, does it still exist?

    However, The Miz does kinda suck. And wrestling still does matter. Punk may not be a premier athlete but he still had 'good' matches and I think that's important in delivering satisfying conclusions to programmes etc.

    The Wednesday Night War

    If anyone knows how to appeal to the younger generation, it's a man who hasn't engaged with any pop culture outside of wrestling since like 1985

    Tbf, it sounds like Tanahashi was the one who originally brought the AEW title into play in the build

    I've never been less interested in WWE TV so the only reason I keep it around because I like to watch old WCW with my brother.

    Wrestle Kingdom 14

    Did Eddie ever win anything in Japan? I'm intrigued for New Year's Dash tomorrow because this weekend seemed like the payoff for a lot of long term stories so you'd think there could be quite a few angles to set up new directions. Seems clear that Naito will be feuding with Bullet Club for the next while but I really have no idea what Okada does next.

    I would have liked him to just get the traditional close out but I didn't mind it. What was kinda dumb was that LIJ weren't all running out for the save. Just BUSHI sauntering in casually after KENTA had already beat the shit out of Naito and teabagged him. Unless there's an angle explanation for that tomorrow, I thought that was kinda silly.
