not devoting 40 minutes of my time to it every week if the show doesn't promote it and tries to persuade me to watch it. But again, they are focusing on their hardcore true fans so whatever.
This would work perfect for Daniel Bryan. But again, I’m willing to bet on Roman getting the super push
"As much as I think some of AEW's detractors are…purposefully obtuse at times, I have to agree on the Cody/QT/MJF thing.
This is show don't tell stuff. I enjoyed the match; I enjoyed QT surprising people; i would have enjoyed it more if it was really put over before hand that this was MJF putting Cody in check. And that insert promo gets the bare minimum of credit.
I appreciate that they are still trying to figure out the balance of creating drama without spelling everything out, but they are erring too much on the side of telling too little"
And he didn’t buy it for me?
guy who would be wasted in that spot
Now that it's well established that NXT is handily destroying AEW on
Wednesdays and Cody's promotion is on its deathbed, is the end also
near for NXT as we know it?
With NXT taking a more prominent position (live on Wednesdays against
AEW, all the Survivor Series nonsense, bringing Raw/Smackdown guys in
to "invade") I just have this sinking feeling that Vince is going to
start mucking with it more and more. What makes NXT so great is that
it's far removed from Vince and his army of writer monkeys. I worry
that in the wake of NXT beating AEW a couple of weeks in a row, the
lesson Vince will take away is that it's the Raw/SD "influence" that
turned the tide and he'll start tinkering with it until NXT is as much
of a chore as Monday and Friday nights are.
What do you think? Is Vince going to mess with the Wednesday show or
does Triple H put his foot down? Or will Vince be too busy pretending
to be a football mogul to care?
With Triple H a front-office fixture, does the title of "Smartest Man
in Pro Wrestling" now belong to Randy Orton?
He calls out bullshit whenever he wants, works whatever schedule he
wants, "corpses" on camera (to borrow Maffew's phrase) whenever he
wants, gives whatever level of effort he feels is justified on any
given day… and he just signed a contract for "fuck you" level money
because Vince doesn't want him to go play with Cody in AEW.
Given all the kayfabe accolades he's already achieved, is there a
wrestler on the planet who sits in a better position?
