    AEW Dark Megathread

    Brodie Jr. cutting straight fire promos on this week’s show. Make him the new Exalted One, to hell with it.

    WWE TV 04/01 - 10/01 Steph Curry is sensational

    Cardi B explicitly stating she likes Sasha Banks and WWE ignoring that to try to get the white, blonde girl over at their own detriment just about sums them up these days.
  3. Jon Silver is going to be wearing the mini-Brodie gear that Huber bought him and it's actually a great look for him.
  4. This is awful news. Obviously it pales in comparison to the loss to his family, especially at this time of year, but it really felt that he was getting to have a resurgence in AEW that has been sadly cut short. Devastating news and just a total shock.

    AEW Dynamite - December 23, 2020

    Jericho doesn’t seem demonstrably older than he did last year. Putting him in matches with the likes of Top Flight exposes him somewhat but that’s on the Booker. The main matches for him going forward seem to be MJF and Wardlow which are probably in his wheelhouse

    AEW Dynamite - December 23, 2020

    This was a better show than previous weeks, partly because we got the likes of MJF, Dustin, Evil Uno and Pac working in-ring. I get that the Bucks want to work with the younger teams and put them over in defeat but Bucks/Natural Nightmares feels like it would be a far stronger TV main event than the Bucks working another green team. Bowens and Castor have a great look but yeah, the rap gimmick is death and the video/song they showed early on was terrible. Kind of amazed that the Good Brothers didn’t show but I’m assuming that’s being kept for a live show. I loved MJF using Santana’s grief to win them over to his side, what a fantastic heel move to advance that program. I assume that Shida slaying Abbadon will invalidate her looking weak with her every week but I’d heat up the Thunder Rosa/Britt Baker program fairly quickly and shift the belt into that feud in the new year. Still, a really easy watch, even if they are beginning to lose me with the direction they're going with certain programs and acts but that’s really just my own personal preferences, rather than any errors on their part

    Is Impact the best promotion in wrestling history?

    I had a feeling that Tony Khan wouldn't be able to resist the allure of TV but playing out a McMemphis act on Impact is probably the best way to ease yourself into doing it.
  8. New Donk City is one of the top 5 video game levels of all time. Exploring that will be a much better use of your time than watching Raw.

    Comments that don't warrant a thread - Part 4

    Bret repeatedly asking people if they “had the jam” to step against the Hart Foundation is one of my favourite wrestling related phrases. I’ve never heard it from anyone else.

    Tonight’s Dynamite is a live one, right? Would be a good time to get The Good Brothers to show up on that show as a surprise, especially once Moxley gets involved in the Omega/Janela match

    WWE TV 12/7-12/13 Congrats to Becky and Seth

    I saw that Charlotte's return is "planned" and if it isn't just "Charlotte is number 30 in the Royal Rumble" I'll be amazed.

    Is Impact the best promotion in wrestling history?

    That's exactly what I thought of when I saw Khan's promo. It feels like a trial run and he really isn't a bad promo, all things considered. Omega's title collector gimmick is a great idea but trying to book when and how he loses/wins the titles seems like a headache I could never want,.

    AEW Dynamite - December 9, 2020

    Seems like he's had a nightmare year from a personal POV (on top of everything else). Right before Christmas as well, awful. I'm glad they've done another great rating but it feels like a lot of this show was built on promos that would deliver clarifications or further directions on storylines and not a single one did that.

    AEW Dynamite - December 9, 2020

    Thanks, I hadn’t seen any news on it. I was worried that he had quietly left for a second which would break up my favourite AEW team

    AEW Dynamite - December 9, 2020

    That’ll be why he hasn’t wrestled since then and Silver got a mini singles push, obviously. I thought this show started well enough with that ridiculous opener and then got steadily worse. The Shaq/Brandi stuff was muddled, as was the Cody/Sting angle. Sting can’t possibly be a heel, I can see Shaq being the babyface but Cargill definitely isn’t but Brandi is acting heelish despite having a broken arm. Let’s streamline this thing a bit. At least it’s giving a lot of the women something to do. What’s the deal with Santana? Is he carrying an injury? Or something more personal since he’s been in the pre-tapes (I believe) but hasn’t actually appeared in-ring since the Best Friends match, I believe. There’s only so much goodwill they get from delaying the Omega announcement across two separate shows. Moxley coming back next week, driving through that gap in the stadium, of course, seems like an obvious angle. For some reason, the live Dynamite shows always feel better paced than their taped shows.
