Nothing wrong with that!

slik 09-20-2022 05:39 PM

I feel like it will probably most definitely NOT be the biggest AEW show ever but TK gotta TK...

ron the dial 09-20-2022 05:45 PM

well he did say "The single best live wrestling event in New York this entire year"

but even that will definitely not be true

Mr. Nerfect 09-20-2022 05:55 PM

You don’t need to promote shows that way. It’s fine to talk about it being your second Grand Slam, there being a guaranteed World Champion, etc. Saying it’s going to be the best/biggest ever isn’t necessary.

This show should do 1.2 million given the ratings recently. They’ll celebrate that like it’s won the entire week.

Fignuts 09-20-2022 06:39 PM

Is this 3 hours? Cause I cant see the majority of matches on this card getting the time they should on a 2 hour show with commercials

Mr. Nerfect 09-20-2022 07:18 PM

This would be the Dynamite to make 3 hrs. I know Rampage has been bumped up to 2 (with no real dramatic matches).

Mr. Nerfect 09-20-2022 07:20 PM

The lesson learnt from last week would be to put focus on the main event. It would be great if the show built around that. I doubt they’re going to have time.

Mr. Nerfect 09-20-2022 07:21 PM

Danielson should win the AEW Regional Title and The Acclaimed should win the Tag Titles. I’d say Toni Storm should get longer with the Women’s Title, but she kind of sucks. If they moved the belt to Britt Baker it would be haphazard but not the wrong destination.

Ol Dirty Dastard 09-20-2022 07:54 PM

Seph's gonna love Tony's proclamation. Right up his alley.

Supreme Olajuwon 09-20-2022 08:11 PM

Hell yeah, boys! I’m just as pumped as you are for this show!

Mr. Nerfect 09-20-2022 08:53 PM

I wouldn’t be opposed to Danielson winning the belt with help from MJF. That gets some wheels spinning.

Sepholio 09-20-2022 08:56 PM


Evil Vito 09-20-2022 09:00 PM

Excited to go see this. No idea how the show will come across on TV but live wrestling is always a lot of fun.

Mr. Nerfect 09-20-2022 09:25 PM

Seg 1: The Acclaimed beat Gloryholes and Charisma Vacuums to win the tag belts. Show clips of Danielson training.

Seg 2: MJF promo. He talks about how it doesn’t matter who wins the World Title tonight, because he’s coming for it.

Seg 3: Britt Baker promo. She says she’s got the edge because Jamie Hayter is in her corner. Jade Cargill walks in and sarcastically wishes Britt Baker luck. Claudio vs. Jericho for the ROH Title.

Seg 4: Claudio defeats Jericho to retain ROH Title. Mox is shown warming up.

Seg 5: Hype package for Danielson/Mox featuring comments from legends, etc. Women’s Title commences.

Seg 6: Toni Storm retains the Women’s Title. Tenille Dashwood comes out and confronts her.

Seg 7: Britt Baker yells at Jamie Hayter for not being out there to help her. Danielson and Moxley commences.

Seg 8: Danielson wins the title with help from MJF.

It’s tight, but it fits.

Mr. Nerfect 09-20-2022 09:26 PM

Oh shit, I dropped the comedy title match. Eh.

Mr. Nerfect 09-20-2022 09:29 PM

Shave some time off Jericho/Claudio and have PAC and Cassidy go a few minutes. PAC wins because you can get something out of him as a dual champion.

Mr. Nerfect 09-20-2022 09:31 PM

The Rampage card looks whack as hell.

xrodmuc316 09-20-2022 10:52 PM

Tony Khan promotes his shit like a legit cult leader would


"I do think if the numbers on TNT and TBS keep up where they're at, you all keep doing a great job watching the shows and supporting us, why not [do the show in Dallas]," Khan said. "Let's keep going, I love the Dallas market and there's a good chance we'll come back and do Winter is Coming again this year. Let's do it."
Keep watching so we can keep wrestling!!!


"Tomorrow's AEW Grand Slam in New York City is now officially the [highest-grossing] event in AEW TV history!" Khan tweeted. "Don't miss Grand Slam on tv tomorrow live on Wednesday Night AEW Dynamite on TBS + part 2 Friday Night AEW Rampage on TNT."
Why the fuck would fans actually care? This dude is bragging about increasing ticket prices, and wants his cult to celebrate that they had to spend more money?

xrodmuc316 09-20-2022 11:02 PM

How do you make MORE money selling 7000 less tickets? LOL

Answer, Tiny inflated a bunch of the tickets he bought to make it look more successful so he could tweet :lol:

Mr. Nerfect 09-20-2022 11:09 PM

I did find it very weird that TK was promoting how much money they generated and in the same breath admitted they still had tickets left to sell.

“We’re not that popular, but we’ll charge you out the ass.”

Supreme Olajuwon 09-20-2022 11:19 PM

Nobody has posted the card yet. Don’t know how excited I should be

Supreme Olajuwon 09-20-2022 11:20 PM

Jesus fucking Christ look at this titty fucking card

Mr. Nerfect 09-20-2022 11:23 PM

* Swerve in Our Gravy vs. The Acclaimed
* Claudio Castagnoli vs. Chris Jericho for the title of the defunct promotion
* Toni Storm vs. Britt Baker vs. Athena vs. Serena Deeb for the Women’s Championship but not really
* PAC vs. Orange Cassidy for PAC’s weird title
* Bryan Danielson vs. Jon Moxley in the Ratings Grab for the vacant AEW Title

Mr. Nerfect 09-20-2022 11:24 PM

I remember SmackDown used to be 5 matches back when I used to enjoy it. And Takeovers are 5 matches long for 2 hours. So that’s probably the right number, honestly.

Mr. Nerfect 09-20-2022 11:25 PM

Show’s tomorrow. I was wondering why no one was talking about it.

Supreme Olajuwon 09-20-2022 11:28 PM

*5 stars
*4.75 stars
*4 stars
*4.5 stars
*7 stars

In my unbiased opinion

Ol Dirty Dastard 09-20-2022 11:30 PM

Will we see the elusive *8 star match?

weathered vine 09-20-2022 11:34 PM

AEW is the best.

Mr. Nerfect 09-20-2022 11:36 PM

I wonder which wrestlers on this card would rather be working for the WWE right now?

* You’ve got PAC. He was a golden child under Triple H. Got two shows built around him. Clashed with Vince. In AEW, he’s kind of just there. They’ve shoved him into a main event here or there and have just started loading him up with belts, but it’s also easy to forget he exists.

* Ember Moon seemed to get treated above what she was able to deliver in NXT.

* I do wonder about Cesaro now. Triple H picked him for NXT use at times. His 2014 surge is based largely on what he did down there with Regal and Zayn.

* Swerve Strickland is probably kicking himself for signing.

* Keith Lee is a maybe. I don’t know how much of his negative WWE experience was because Vince rightfully didn’t see it in him and what was him being universally seen as a bust.

* If I were the Acclaimed, I’d want to jump ship.

* Danielson would never say it, but the shitshow AEW is vs. what is possible in WWE now? Yeah, he’d go back.

Serious predictions: Dave gives Danielson and Moxley 4.75 and Jericho and Claudio 4.5.

RaginRonic 09-21-2022 02:18 AM

MJF cashes in his chip on either an exhausted Mox or Danielson to become World Champ of AEW is my projection for Grand Slam.

It's how wrestling heels are ALWAYS booked.


Sepholio 09-21-2022 02:25 AM

Danielson wins and then The Greatest Booker Of All Time Tony Khan comes out and announces his first defense will be right now and then he SENDS HOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOK. Crowd goes bonkers. Hook comes out and squashes an already exhausted Bryan via a few suplexes and then choking him out. You thought the crowd was nuts before? Well now they are losing their shit. Stokely and his goons then hit the ring OUTTA NOWHERE and destroy Hook. MJFs music hits, he comes out and hands Tony the chip, pins Hook and Tony counts the 3 and then he raises MJFs hand and hands him the belt. Crowd pops so hard that people start spontaneously combusting as Dynamite goes off the air.

Sepholio 09-21-2022 02:28 AM

Don't get it twisted though, this isn't Tony become an evil authority. MJF just has him by the balls that much when it comes to negotiating a deal to get him to return and save AEW.

Sepholio 09-21-2022 02:31 AM

TK will get his revenge this Friday at Rampage: Grand Slam: THE GREATEST RAMPAGE EVER when he has Captain Insano squashes MJF and become the new champion. Captain Insano will hold the belt until All In next year when he finally drops it to Darby Allin.

Mr. Nerfect 09-21-2022 03:00 AM

Jokes aside, here is what I think is the best finish for Grand Slam:

Danielson wins with MJF’s help. Danielson vows he knew nothing about it. MJF says that Danielson reached out to him and he should be thankful because MJF is the only way Danielson can get to that level again. Actually start a three-way feud between MJF, Mox and Danielson. It can spread out and involve a bunch of others.

For example, Morrissey (who is friends with Mox in real life) can be MJF’s personal revenge against Wardlow. Mox fucks with Morrissey and costs him. This leads to Mox & Wardlow as an awkward team who might not get along against MJF & Morrissey.

Mr. Nerfect 09-21-2022 03:00 AM

And yes, Captain Insano should win the Golden Ticket Battle Royal.

Jordan 09-21-2022 09:12 AM

Big question is who is going to DEBUT tonight on AEW? Which former WWE star will it be?

Sepholio 09-21-2022 09:15 AM

They need a huge debut tonight. I mean a top level, world changing guy. Someone like Fandango.
