He also praised Moxley last week which made me think it was a trick
Corney's a smart guy.
He's just got an antiquated mindset and spends too long being a tired gimmick for clicks.
Doesn't surprise me at all because Cody's promo is the kinda old school shit that checks all his boxes.
cornette has always praised cody.
The one he I qquote "want to slice his throat from one side to another" is omega, he also said he wants Lesnar to die.
But yep he pretty much likes cody because he is old school.
It's go time
The gap is closing. It's still impressive that AEW beat NXT with them being all over SD and Raw this past week. I guess we can also expect a post PPV bump.
I think one of the main issues AEW is facing in order to keep casual viewers around in the short term is that, for example, this week all the matches had no stakes. It was matches for the sake of having matches. This is not something that will keep a casual viewer around, but it's a marathon to create long-term fans, so these kind of matches are necessary to establish talent, storylines, etc.
Title matches on TV are surely something that would be able to hook viewers into watching, if these type of matches are announced on the show the week before. I think it's also important to announce matches in general on the show the week before, because you're viewing audience will always be bigger than your audience on social media, where they do most of their match announcements, and inclined to tune in next week, if they're on the verge of watching the show or not.
I'd also start a conscious effort to promote the womens division more with promos, segments and match announcements in advance. What I noticed in the last few weeks is that the female viewership always increased for both AEW and NXT when some kind of live sports event was running at the same time (MLB, NBA, etc.), so I think you can grab a certain amount of female viewerbase, especially a young demographic, this way. This would also cultivate them to stick around in general, if your product is solid.
Do it without main roster . Then I'll be impressed.
Not going to lie im really impressed with those numbers from AEW. I was thinking the worst was going to happen and they would continue to decline but they're back around a really fucking solid number.
I'm going to check out NXT when i go home but i see they had AJ and a pseudo version of devitt which is something smart fans have been clamoring for since his universal title win.
You know what? Fuck ratings for every wrestling show. I'm tired of worrying about that aspect of wrestling. If you enjoy WWE enjoy it. If yiu enjoy any other show , enjoy it. Done worrying about AEW going out of business or WWE struggling. I'm just gonna talk about the product itself.
Dat Jericho promo from yesterday.
The old woman is what cracked me up
THE youngest AEW champ in history at 48yrs old
Longest reigning, too.
I really hope this isn't true.
Dave's often misinformed, so I guess you can bank on that. That said, while I'm not saying it's 100% true... I am saying it wouldn't shock me in the fucking slightest.
This is part of the reason my stomach turns nowadays whenever I see people try to guilt-trip others into "appreciating the product for the sake of the appreciation of the talent", I guess in a last ditch effort to get dissenters to stop shitting on WWE so much. Remiss of me to say, but if I'm being completely frank... I can't muster enough respect for the talent to override my evergrowing disgust with the brand. This is one of the better examples as to why.
Call it immature.
Pretty much says it all if that story is true.
Zack Ryder > Half the roster
He constantly gets shit on and was buried for getting himself over, but he doesn't give a FUCK and genuinely loves being there so he can fund his youtube channel. Niggas be teasing fans that they're gonna leave or voicing displeasure on a plane and then pipe up when taken to task slightly.
Ryder's livin' his best life, getting fucked in the ass because he just loves dick, rest are uppity-ass hoes who hate the pimp life but won't look for a job.
Smh guess Moxley was the only one who would have the balls to say something
Yea I kinda don't want to hear wwe wrestlers voice complaints on Twitter. IF this story is true , you had a chance to let the big man know you are irritated but you all bowed down like sheep.
Does anyone remember the Stone Cold podcast with Austin and Vince. At one point of the interview Vince would say don't piss anyone off yet at another point he would criticize the roster for not speaking up......
Normally I'd be fine with the silence, since at the end of the day things like booking and who eats what pin doesn't really matter to these dudes' everyday lives in the long run.
But they're being boldfacedly lied to about being left behind and facing coincidental mechanical issues that left them in a country we know most the talent are uncomfortable with for 30 damn hours. Now was the time to at least say "hey, we cool if I just sit the next one out?" or "could ya'll stick with us next time, just so that everything can go a little smoother should this happen again?"
I suppose most of them are just holding off until the next one actually comes to flatly refuse and don't wanna rock the boat until then, but I dunno who I'm trying to kid by saying that. I'm certain every single one of them will be on that plane.
Predictions for Full Gear tomorrow?
Baker over Bea
Spears over Jelly
Pac over Hangman
Riho over Sakura
SCU over Private Party & Lucha bros, PP eats the pin
Bucks over LAX
Mox over Kenny
Chris over Cody due to interference by Wardlow
Jericho killing it ROFL. Great parody promo and I hope this means we get more funny shit from Virgil.
I know they don't want to jeopardize their livelihood by speaking out but hopefully majority at least quietly bow out of the next saudi arabia event instead of being intimidated by Vince and accepting the extremely uncomfortable and dangerous situations for a fat payday.
I mean there's options now more than ever. The worst Vince will do is send you home as you get paid. Thats not scary.
Mine are exactly like yours except I think LAX are getting the win (and that while Chris wins, I don't know nor say how). Mostly because the Bucks are right now in a procces of getting all the other teams over, which they happily do, and having a part of the inner circle lose on their first important match when they are trying to make them seen as powerful as the elite would hurt them quite a bit, while the bucks won't lose much by losing as long as they give a good match. They are the best tag team in the world and too over for that to affect them.
I think the Villain costs Moxley the match
Guys we're getting an AEW Dark show today
What time today?
