One of the biggest reasons I like AEW is that they promote what matches are happening ahead of time. Sure they may have a few happening that they don’t advertise , but you tend to know the big matches. Meanwhile almost all the matches are fresh with very few repeats…
Meanwhile, wwe rarely lets folks know any of the matches ahead of time and isn’t afraid of doing the same match multiple weeks in a row.
Do you think this is contributing to AEW’s growing popularity since people have something to look forward to instead of just watching the brand and HOPING for something interesting?
Lesnar’s suspension stands. Meanwhile, Otis over on Raw gets tired of being…whatever Gable has made him into, destroys Gable and quits. A couple weeks later, the Bloodline issue an open challenge to any team they haven’t beaten, but with the catch that if you don’t win, the person that gets pinned is fired. Otis, newly signed to SD, teams up with, eh…doesn’t matter, what matters is, the Usos engage in shenanigans and Otis is pinned. He swears this isn’t the last they’ve heard of him, but he’s fired.
Couple weeks later…same challenge. Out comes a masked man – who is clearly Otis – identifying himself as “Meat Machine.” The Usos protest, but he wins on the technicality that they cannot prove he’s Otis. They then ask who would be dumb enough to risk their career to team with him, and out comes a huge guy in a mask with a sword tat in his chest, Beast Machine. The team of Heavier Machinery win the tag titles.
The Usos and Reigns are furious and demand a rematch with the titles and the masks on the line. Heavier Machinery agrees, but in exchange if they win again, Otis and Lesnar are reinstated. They win. After the match, Reigns comes in for the 3-on-2 beat down, but Lesnar unmasks and whoops his ass, setting up the Universal title match.
It should go without saying, but during this entire thing, Beast Machine is dancing and goofing around just as much as Otis. Maybe he even has a boom box he calls the Beast Box or Meat Box or something.

(and not in the Monsoon sense of the word) disembowel Jake in the ring. After everything Jake did, was there anything that Savage could have done, without shooting on him, that would have seemed like proper payback?
What, in your opinion, is the best in-ring wrestling year for a North American promotion that wasn’t WWF/E, WCW or NWA / Mid-Adlantic?
Sidenote: is Guinness following the wrestling world if 2021 breaks the record for most ladder matches in a year? Nxt is having a gimmick match determine something in another gimmick match!!!
I don’t know if he had already been doing the house show loop with Taker (and thus would have been moved to Jake) but it really does leave a lot of possibilities. Do you know what the plan was?
The problem is that the app is not exactly timely with updating the AEW content. I’ve seen it go for days without posting the new episode. Fite is instant.
Hope all is well. So say Triple H is bringing the stuffing for Thanksgiving dinner at Chez McMahon. Does Kahn future endeavor the stuffing before it even hits the table?
Only the casseroles brought by HHH.
