The SmarK Rant for AEW Dynamite – 12.04.19

Hey, I put up a poll on Thursday night and AEW won fair and square.  You could have had NXT but BLAME YOURSELVES.  I don’t owe you people an explanation!

Last week’s show ended on a big moment with Jon Moxley seemingly setting himself up as the next challenger to Chris Jericho’s World Title. They had a big feud in WWE so doing the same thing over here would be fine enough. Hopefully they can bounce back from a slightly down week last time. Let’s get to it.

It’s back where things got started with a return to Chicago. As luck would have it, we are in for a big show here with the World Title being defended as champion Chris Jericho faces Scorpio Sky in an unlikely title defense. That could make for a heck of a match and hopefully the rest of the show backs it up. Let’s get to it.

This should make for an interesting week as Chris Jericho is set to make a huge announcement. That very well may be something about his cruise, but it could be something coming a little sooner. Other than that we should be in for our usual big show, though you never can tell what that is going to bring. Let’s get to it.

It’s time for the next step around here as we get into the fallout from Full Gear. That could go in a lot of different directions though as they do not have a next major event on the schedule just yet. The big story out of Saturday is MJF turning on Cody and Kenny Omega and Jon Moxley losing their minds. Let’s get to it.

The SmarK Rant for AEW Full Gear 2019 – 11.09.19

Thanks to Fite.TV for providing me with this show so I can bring you the review. They’ve always been awesome to deal with.

Speaking of awesome, thanks to everyone thus far who has signed up for my Patreon! I’m at www.patreon.com/blogofdoom, and I’m already dangerously close to hitting my first goal of $100 per month, which means…sigh…redoing Heroes of Wrestling. But I asked for it, I guess. Any and all support is greatly appreciated, whether it’s via patronage or just reading the site, so I thank you for it.

Live from Baltimore, MD

Your hosts are Excalibur & Jim Ross, as Tony is sadly on assignment. Why not keep Taz on for the full show, I wonder?

Despite being less than a month and a half after the debut of their weekly television show, it is already time for their next pay per view. The big main event tonight is Cody vs. Chris Jericho for the latter’s World Title, but if Cold loses he can never challenge for the title again. I’m not sure what is going to happen there and that makes things more interesting. Let’s get to it.

We’re back in Flair Country this week and it’s the go home show for Full Gear. Therefore, Chris Jericho is wrestling again because he does that quite often. In theory we should get some more matches announced for the show tonight as there are only five matches for the regular pay per view card so far. Let’s get to it.

It’s time to crown some new champions and that means we’re in for a tournament final. Tonight we get the first ever AEW Tag Team Champions as SCU faces the Lucha Bros for the inaugural titles. Other than that we have the contract signing for Full Gear between Chris Jericho and Cody. Let’s get to it.

We’re now into double digits for the total number of shows AEW has produced and that means…very little actually as this show isn’t even a month old yet. The tag teams will be on full display again this week with two Tag Team Title tournament semifinals and a big regular tag match as a bonus. Let’s get to it.
