    AEW Dynamite - January 20, NOT 29, 2021

    This might be the best I’ve ever seen Hager look. He rocked MJF with that punch! And fuuuuuck was Sammy’s swanton amazing! Jericho looked like shit. He needs to retire the lionsault.

    Great: Miro’s track suit. Love it. Bad: Kip Sabian fucking up his interference in the finish. He’s so bad.

    I like this Private Party turn. Hardy gets in their head and a new team shows up that does their thing better than them so they start cheating. Makes sense.

    Eh, Shaq still has some pull. His DJ sets draw huge crowds and he’s still active on NBA tv. They can cross promote on TNT’s NBA coverage and maybe get some folks to take a look. Is it enough to really make a huge impact? Probably not. But he’s not totally irrelevant. *Full disclosure, my wife works for one of the companies (yes, there are many) that Shaq endorses. She’s actually worked directly with him on a few things.

    I think Hook might be Ricky Starks’ kid. He looks more like him than he does Taz. That whole segment was kinda pointless. I’m all for a slow burn, but Sting has pretty much done the same thing every week. They need to advance that story.
  6. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=38Cy_Qlh7VM&t=30s I think of this video a lot when I think of WWE's booking for the last few years. I don't want to get into a debate on what the author of the video is saying (Snyder's filmmaking vs. Marvel movies). But, I think WWE's issue is what he talks about here. They are trying to create moments, and that's it. They've always done this, but the moments used to come at key points in a story. Take the Megapowers story, for example. There are multiple iconic moments in this story. First, there's Honky Tonk Man throwing Liz to the ground. Then, there's Liz leading Hogan down to save Randy. Then, there's the ridiculously amazing handshake between Savage and Hogan. Then, there's Hogan with Liz on his shoulder. And so on... Now, it's like they have the moment in mind, but don't take the steps to get there. Like @DMJ said up there, they think Alexa on the swing is enough. Why is she on the swing? How did we get there? WWE wants to have that shot of Wrestler X pointing to the Wrestlemania sign. They'll show it week after week in video packages. I don't think they put too much effort into getting that wrestler to the point where we really care that they're pointing to that sign, though. I was glad Drew won the Rumble last year. Mostly because it was someone fresh. But was I invested in him winning and pointing to that sign? No. He'd won a few matches maybe leading up to it, but he didn't have a story.
  7. Not a blow-away show, but still good overall. That main was pretty awesome. Darby takes a beating like no one else. Ive enjoyed my weekly AEW chat with @sek69and @MoS!
  8. I was thinking the same thing. She’s had really good matches with a few women who I haven’t seen have really good matches with anyone else.
  9. Goddammit. Jade has a AMAZING look and may be able to go in the ring (I have no idea), but they need to keep her off the mic.
  10. I do think one issue with all of The Elite stuff is that we never really got a period where they were all together. Like, for a few months when AEW started, it would’ve been good to have them all chummy and doing well, then start showing cracks. They pretty much started the promotion with them not being 100% together.
  11. Eh, I like it better that they’re not just suddenly all teaming up. I thought it was a little abrupt that they all joined up last week. Someone needs to tell Omega that if he wants to keep talking during matches, he either needs to speak up or enunciate better so that we can tell what the fuck he’s saying.
  12. Oof. That whole Cargill thing was such shit that she hasn’t spoken on tv since, I don’t think.
  13. I thought the singing along to Judas thing was kinda cool when it was an organic thing that the crowd started doing. I HATE the wrestlers at ringside doing it.
  14. Bam Bam is a dude who I think is awesome, but I wish he was better. He seemed to have so much potential and just never quite got all the wag there. But, man, there is a very short list of wrestlers who had a better, pure-pro wrestling look than him. Oh and he’s totally up there with best wrestling names ever.

    Winning streaks - good or bad?

    I do have positive memories of Goldberg and I agree that he’s remembered fo sly for tearing through guys. But, when I think of the streak itself, I don’t think of it positively because of the end. Don’t think endings matter? Ask a Game of Thrones fan. Lol.
