    Yeah, the only match it did a great job of building hype for was Jericho v Page imo. Lucha Bros. V Young Bucks kinda sold itself though.

    She's going for the Red Shoes mounting exhaustion climax thing, but I think she's also getting her ego inflated a bit by the online community and probably AEW themselves. Over on Reddit, they jump at any chance to praise a woman for any little thing. Even noticing that kind of thing sounds kind of petty but it really is true.

    There was another post in this thread where someone linked to a Tweet of someone saying that all of this diversity stuff only results in a white male audience. And it's because that stuff is all designed to be a feel good thing. It's to let you pat yourself on the back for not being or feeling judgemental. I've definitely seen some of that surrounding this ref.

    Arn was there because he works for AEW, which is pretty well known bro

    It still didn't make much sense. Everything he said there was valid. It was a lot of over booking with no direction.

    I watched the show. They still need to work out some stuff, namely who the faces and heels are. In some cases guys flip flop like they don't know what their roles are.

    Omega is still an over-acting dork. Probably no fixing that since he's been involved in so much silly shit and has been doing his shtick so long.

    The rest of the show was alright.

    Cody has been killing it in AEW since it started, so I was really let down by how much I hated this match. None of the story elements worked for me and I didn't think they made any sense.

    Ref threatens Spears when he won't drop Cody's belt, but doesn't toss him when he actually uses his own?

    Tully distracts the ref so Spears can do a low blow, but later in the match Spears rams Codys junk into the ring post in full view of the ref with no warning given?

    Tully just leaving after the spine buster for no reason when his man really needed him?

    It just felt like the match never followed its own internal logic.

    Serious question; was Kenny trained as a dancer or maybe gymnast before wrestling? Before he runs the ropes he always does a little twinkle-toes hop, which I have seen in dance routines before the dancers do some running leap. Gymnasts also do it during those floor routines.

    You claim it sucks but you keep watching just to complain
    I said that about you a long time ago and you disagreed
    Clearly I was correct

    I watch because I want it to be good. I want an alternative to WWE. I've never said it sucks, just that they have a lot of work to do and they also do as much stupid shit as WWE. I think I've said this, but it's ok for people to disagree with you. Don't take it so personally.

    P.S. You must have my posts on super-alert.

    SCU did in their entrance and pre-match promo. I didn't know if I was watching a heel team or face team. They come off as arrogant dbags walking to the ring, Sky acts like a dick on the mic, then hands it over to Daniels who cuts a face promo. Nonsense.

    Cody flip flops every show. I don't know what the fuck he's supposed to be. And he has the biggest asshole in the company at ringside with him. Nonsense.

    You can't change my mind here Pete, but I know you're gonna try.

    Do you not understand how the quote function works?

    Naw bro, when you nit pick fan response youre not doing that because you "want it to be good"
    You're doing that cause you want to complain
    At this point we know what AEW is, I think its mostly great so I keep watching
    You think it sucks so why do you keep watching?
    Cause youre just like these idiots that complain about Raw nonstop but cant miss an episode
    Do you do that too?

    I feel like it's fairly easy to understand SCU and how over they are with the crowd.

    Cody is Cody. He's not a good guy, he's not a bad guy, he's Cody Rhodes. He'll do what he wants when needed, but also somewhat has a moral compass. I don't think everything has to be black and white, and most great stories are told when it's not.

    I think you don't know how to handle someone criticizing something you like, or simply disagreeing with you. I think you need a hug.

    I haven't watched an episode of Raw in ages.

    No, theres lots of people in this thread criticizing AEW (spoiler alert : Im one of them) and for some reason I dont disagree with them, because their points are valid or at least theyre giving their honest opinion of it even if theyre wrong
    When I see an idiot complaining that fans enjoy something that they themselves clearly dont enjoy but cant stop watching, Im gonna waste a few minutes of my life pointing out how fulla shit that person is
    I do it with a few people in this place, its one of my joys in life

    he played hockey (goalie) I think before going into wrestling. the twinkle toes hop, extreme facial gestures and other preliminary movements just come from his over the top otaku style developed in DDT.
