AEW Dynamite - March 10, 2021

How do they address the biggest, most embarrassing both in their history? Apologise and move on? Try to work it in a storyline? Double down on it? Pray?

Hopefully either apologize and move on or work it into the storyline. I’d rather see it worked into the storyline but only if they can make it make sense. If they can’t come up with a good reason that doesn’t make everyone involved look like crap then apologize and move on.

Yeah I think the same. Wrestling fans might mock you mercilessly, but they are also forgiving in general if you don't feed them bullshit. ECW managed to recover from two such failed explosions.  WCW's biggest moments came AFTER similarly embarrassing misfires like Shockmaster. But they have to not bullshit the fans or insult their intelligence. If you do that for an extended period of time, fans absolutely will leave you, like we saw with WCW and WWE for the last 20 years or so

In bigger news, we're getting Maki Itoh on US television.

This. Who the fuck cares about Christian Cage or botched explosions ? Maki Itoh is the greatest thing ever.

I think the show tonight will be really important in how AEW is perceived moving forward. There's going to be some ill-will from the Pay-Per-View on Sunday, especially from the people that paid $50 during a pandemic to watch it. So they need to do something, and I don't think they should just ignore it or make a joke of it.

Giving us a Fenix match to kick off the show is a good start on the make good process.

This "he didn't hook the leg" is becoming a commentary clutch. Excalibur mentioned it about Fenix's pin on Matt. Fenix didn't hook the legs because he was pinning Matt's further arm and shoulder. It might be picking nits, but it makes the pinning wrestler look sloppy, and doesn't highlight the amazing achievement that kicking out of it was.

Alright. I liked that promo. Admit it wasn’t what it was supposed to be and move on. Helps to have the best talker in wrestling explaining it, of course.

I might be biased as a King fan, but he somehow semi-salvaged this?! And blaming IMPACT for it was gold. They do need to still finish it nicely though, that promo by itself isn't enough. Moxs' wink after the "If you have a weapon, use it " line is a hopeful sign

The real shame of this explosion debacle is that, if it had been an impressive explosion, it would’ve made Kingston’s face turn an all-timer.

PENTA has such a charismatic presence, it's a shame they had done both Fenix and PENTA a disservice by continuing to pair them up

So I'm guessing Penta breaks Cody's arm so he can go on paternity leave?

Now the audio mix is all weird, the crowd volume is like maxed out and the announcers are getting drowned out.

Ok, ok. I see what they’re doing with Sting now. So, AEW is the spiritual successor to WCW. In WCW, Sting was always getting turned on. In AEW, he always gets interrupted. That’s his new thing.

Should happen every time JR speaks, like earlier today when he forgot the super complicated name "Lucha Bros"
