wet the state you become when interacting with liquid. you become wet. burnt is the state you become when you interact with fire. fire burns you. you cant burn fire. water doesnt wet itself.

Depends on your definition.

Destor is smarter than Tony Khan

weather vane 11-30-2021 02:31 PM

Semantics. Nobody likes that guy.

I guarantee you that Anderson Cooper has no idea who this guy is.

The decline of Ric Flair has low-key been one of the saddest stories of 2021.

Tony Khan is awkward and creepy "AF".

Seriously, this muppet is more detrimental to his product than Vince McMahon is to the WWE.

You’re right, and while a bit silly, it does go to show the confidence with which this guy is in way over his head.

Big Swole gone.

Mr. Nerfect 11-30-2021 09:13 PM

Interesting that they finally released someone. Or that her contract came up. There are quite a few people that could be released to help tidy up perception of the roster.

Evil Vito 12-04-2021 12:34 PM

Watched Rampage this morning. That main event totally slapped.

GD 12-04-2021 01:40 PM

I’m not a fan of Sammy Guevara’s style. There’s no sense of pacing. Just one move after the other.

Lock Jaw 12-04-2021 08:03 PM

That describes like half the roster and half of modern workers

#1-norm-fan 12-04-2021 08:05 PM

I think “half” might be an understatement.

#1-norm-fan 12-04-2021 08:07 PM

I sometimes wonder how I would take modern wrestling if I didn’t grow up a wrestling fan and just tuned in brand new today.

Mr. Nerfect 12-04-2021 09:39 PM

That’s why it isn’t generating new fans, no matter how hard some hardcore fans campaign to the lapsed fan or people who have never been into wrestling. The people who have stuck with wrestling remember when it was good and just have some neurotic tick that keeps them plugged in.

Mr. Nerfect 12-04-2021 09:44 PM

People seem pretty convinced that Kevin Steen is going to AEW, but I think the darkhorse to leave might actually be Shinsuke Nakamura. Not because I think he feels unhappy, or disrespected in his current role. But I can see Tony Khan opening up the wallet to him, since he’s probably a mark for his New Japan work. And having him does allow TK to lease him out to New Japan of America and whatever.

The WWE will obviously make a large offer to keep him, because he is a value add, but they’ll also have a cap on that and an expectation on dates/touring. I can see TK paying out the ass to have the guy show up much more rarely to try and present him as a special attraction of sorts. So even if the style is more physically taxing, it’s also possible that he’ll be doing a much smaller amount of work a year for more money.

He probably feels a bit of loyalty to Vince, who I do think is a fan, but the difference between $950k and $1.2 million and how each promotion is going to feature him could be what potentially seals it.

Mr. Nerfect 12-04-2021 09:47 PM

You keep hearing all these different things about Chad Gable’s contract and when it comes up, but he’s another guy I see leaving. Again, not because I feel he wants to, per se, but I can see AEW offering him main event money to come in and work with Danielson, Punk, Omega, etc. They’ll treat him like their Kurt Angle.

The WWE are likely to make Gable a reasonable offer, but it’ll probably be good for a mid-carder with no real creative laid out for him. I can see him taking the AEW offer to Vince and being like “What can you do?” and Vince being like “You should take that offer. Go out and get it done and I hope we talk in a few years time.”

It's true but Sammy in particular sticks out to me. Probably because he's the champion and to be fair, his feud with Matt Hardy wasn't my cup of tea either. I can suspend my disbelief for performers like Cassidy because he's never going to be champion and is a variety act but not for "loco" Sammy.

drave 12-05-2021 10:46 AM

no one gives a shit about gable

Guevara should have never taken the belt from miro

The sad thing is that he's probably never seen a single Chad Gable match. Not even in highlight form.

I agree 100%

#1-norm-fan 12-05-2021 09:51 PM

It seemed like they were on a good track with building Miro’s credibility up until he dropped the belt. Is he doing anything of note now?

#1-norm-fan 12-05-2021 09:56 PM

I remember thinking the same about Lance Archer but in his case I guess I can see his age preventing them from wanting to put him over the roster too hard. Miro’s still pretty young I think. They should commit to him as a long-term top heel.

Supreme Olajuwon 12-05-2021 09:59 PM

I like Chad Gable

Lance Archer's neck is fucked at this point, from doing a moonsault.

He turned heel on God and is seemingly going after him. He’s still cutting great promos and vignettes. I’m kinda glad they had him lose to Danielson tbh. They’re still going in whatever direction they’d been building up since his title loss and I want to see where it ends up. He’s still very interesting. But I would like to as him wrestle and destroy some guys and get involved in a good feud.

We’ll see about that.

Evil Vito 12-06-2021 01:07 PM

For as crowded as the roster is, guys who could be available in the coming weeks/months like Johnny Gargano, Kyle O'Reilly, Kevin Owens, Sami Zayn...all of these are guys you have to bring in if they're interested in working for you. You can always find room for those kind of talents.

But that's why a guy like Tony Nese, while I like him well enough and he's a good hand, his signing just feels kinda extraneous. I don't see a higher ceiling for him than being a heel version of what Matt Sydal is.

Lock Jaw 12-06-2021 01:23 PM

I could take or leave Gargano and O´Reilly. More so O´Reilly.

Weapon X 12-06-2021 02:06 PM

at least gargano has a personality.

weather vane 12-06-2021 02:11 PM

I’d like reDragon in the tag division.

Mr. Nerfect 12-06-2021 02:17 PM

Gargano, O’Reilly, Steen and Generico all add value. The perception of acquiring talent is worth it alone. There are talents in AEW you can cut.

My issue isn’t with the signings so much as the talent they keep around, and the deal they make out of some of the signings. Tony Nese and Bobby Fish probably didn’t need that much fanfare.
