AEW Fight For The Fallen

Calling him "THE Hangman" made Page sound like such a jabroni.

Someone really needs to tell Jericho that outfit makes him look like a fucking idiot.

I think he knows, and I think that's the point.

Drunk, middle-aged rockstar brawler has been a good fit for him.

Absolutely. Way more fitting, interesting than any of his late-period WWE guises.

I hope this doesn't go 60. That's probably sacrilege to say, but not every match needs to be an hour.

I don't believe for a second that Jim Ross thinks the Young Bucks are the best tag team in the world. He's spent a part of the evening talking about how guys are using the same moves too much! :lol:

J.R.: "They ain't Patterson and Stevens. They ain't John Wayne. But on a card with the Super Smash Dark Order, they're the best we've got."

I'd pop for that line.

The camera crew needs to learn how and when to take crowd shots.

So far, we've gotten:

- Shad Khan looking bored AF

- A woman sleepily looking at her cell phone

I feel like this match doesn't have anywhere near the heat that it should. The crowd is gassed. 

I'm gassed, and I have my AC blasting. Can't imagine sitting in this heat outdoors, even at nearly midnight.

Beyond that, the match is just them switching work face and heel and not really knowing what's the overall story they're going to tell.

And I think Excalibur just gave us a bad spoiler that it's going another 25 or so.

I would have avoided going to this show as hate the heat.  Been in some hot buildings but these folks have been sitting here a long time outdoors.

If I took my fiancee to this show, she would not let me take her to the next show they're in town.

It would be crazy if they go the distance here under these conditions.  Thirty minutes has already pushed things too much.

Fortunately it was just a statement on the time limit and not about what was booked, just phrased awkwardly.

Easily the weakest of the three AEW shows. No surprises. A main event that just...ended.

Not a bad show or anything, but definitely not as good as Double or Nothing or FyterFest.

It's over.  Nothing spectacular here for me but I tuned in whole time which is an accomplishment.  Free show though and would have been underwhelmed big time if I spent actual money on this.  Giving them the benefit until they get TV up and running and angles played out more.

I thought there was more good than bad to be found in that main event. Even the finisher-stealing at the end I liked. My main issue wasn't the length, it was the LOOOONG Texas tornado closing stretch. I get that epic tag matches all sort of turn into that eventually, but come on--make an effort to keep one guy out of the ring, please. Still, I had it in the ***1/2 range which seems to be on the high side.

Pretty bush-league post-match, all told .
