“A lot” of us can’t take criticism/call people names? That’s tarring a lot of people with the same brush as far as I can tell.

“Is this thing still going? I guess Pineapple Pete is about the best you can do when all the stars decided to stay in WWE instead of going to the "Ellis Island of Professional Wrestling."

That was your first comment in this week’s AEW thread. It’s hardly constructive. The thing is, you’re right (as far as I can tell) about a lot of what you say when you’re prompted to go into detail, but what you start with is 100% trolling.

It’s a smaller-scale version of someone signing up here back in the day expressly to tell us we were/are all stupid because wrestling isn’t real/is shit. The AEW fanboys wouldn’t be accusing you of “sucking Vince’s dick” or being a WWE apologist if you just left them to enjoy their shit product in peace.

It’s needlessly antagonistic. I think you’re a great poster - or at least you were - I just don’t get why you keep coming back to this “dead” board to spark an argument about something you don’t like. Unless, of course, you’re as bored as I am with this worldwide situation and you’re just picking up arguments to pass the time - in which case, you are a troll.
It really doesn't matter. It's like when people believe stupid myths about wrestling. I don't know why this one popped into my head, but when people think Bret Hart was going to show up with the WCW World Title on Nitro the night after Survivor Series '97. I don't know if anyone here believes it, but if I said "Man, I hate it when you have to explain that to people," it doesn't really matter if people here are saying it or not.

Yeah, it is tarring a lot of you with the same brush. Boo-hoo?

What's wrong with something not being constructive? Why the fuck do I need to treat a multi-million dollar operation with kiddie gloves? If you want to do that, that's on you, but I won't throat clear pleasantries for the sake of it every single time. I purposely go blunt too, because it's entertaining to me. These boards are 80% people giving other people shit. I will give people who like AEW shit, especially if they are going to respond with inane slurs like BCZ and passive aggressiveness like Smeat. They can take it as seriously as they want.

I think he accuses me of sucking Vince McMahon's dick about every second post. You can't possibly have missed that -- unless you are blocking out BCZ, which is completely understandable.

I never said that he was. He is very much representative of a lot of the AEW fanboys you encounter elsewhere though, and it's not only a bad look for themselves, but a bad look for AEW too. Oh well, lol.

I was optimistic at the start, but they burnt that pretty quickly. Now I am apathetic towards their existence. They're not a true alternative, nor they are they going to do anything but strengthen Vince McMahon's stranglehold on wrestling. So enjoy it all you want, but I will accuse you of bad taste and AEW of making wrestling even worse.

I think you’d be better off in the YouTube comments; That’s where you’ll find the actual toxic AEW marks you speak of.

You were the most optimistic person on these boards pre-launch. Maybe that’s why you are so critical now; it‘a shit when you put stock in something that turns out to be shit.

(Also, I meant to ask you; Top 3 Jacob Fatu matches I need to watch?)

Haha, it's a lot of other places. Not even I would engage with YouTube comments for sadomasochistic fun.

I was one of the more optimistic (maybe most, as you said). I do absolutely feel frustrated by them not living up to what I hoped, but I am honestly more bummed because I think it is actually going to leave things worse. And this is the sort of thing that Bryan Alvarez threatens to block people about. But Vince McMahon has less to fear than ever before, because not only is he far and away the most effective provider of "sports entertainment," but other billionaires are going to see Shad Khan's small returns and think "why bother?" No one is really going to comb through and realize that AEW niches itself by having an underdeveloped person floss and main eventers that teleport.

I'll be honest -- I haven't watched much MLW lately. I feel like I should to shed some light, because I am high on Jacob Fatu. But I've got this thing with products that I could potentially get more hooked on, because I'm worried they'll sour me and I'll have nothing left, haha.

Lately I've been watching some Contra Unit promos though. They're pretty good. Simon Gotch is a good talker, and Jacob Fatu is actually a pretty good promo. I really like the whole vibe he puts out. I was trying to find out how old he was the other day. He's got 6 kids and made his debut in 2012. I can't imagine he's much older than 30, max, but I'm not sure if that information is out there.

Got around to watching this today. I'm glad that Lashley didn't make the Hulu cut. Not a fan at all.

Loved Asuka's reaction, cool to learn it was legit. I'm behind on NXT/205. But I'm guessing Tozawa is not jobbing on there like he is here?

It seems like there's a bit of...friction in Zelina's group. I'm not sure if they're going for a split, but I don't know if that helps any of them right now.

Basketball game was kinda dumb, but it made me laugh.

Rey/Seth should be fun when it happens. Seth's new theme has real Golden Sun vibes. I dig it.

Edge/Orton in an actual match should be good, but it was a really weird segment (though Orton's promo was good).

A messy episode, but the IIconics are back on my screen so that's solid.

Lashley has a tremendous look, but he’s never put it all together. MVP covers up a lack of personality, but it doesn’t really add charisma or really great ring work.

No he is not. He’s 2-0 in the Interim Cruiserweight Championship tournament. Which sort of shits on everybody else in his field.

Rumour is Austin Theory is headed back to NXT as he was only brought up to fill the gap left by Andrade heading into Mania.

Interesting re: Theory. I guess it'd be "you're not good enough to be here" and Garza will beat him in a Loser Leaves RAW match or something like that.

I don't get why WWE sometimes will treat NXT/205 stuff like it matters, but more often they won't. I get that not everyone watches everything, but wouldn't it help the product overall to have some continuity?

That's a bummer that Rey is possibly done, though not a bad way to write him off I suppose.

They had their first NXT buildup for a match that happened on 205 live in.... Like 3 or 4 months just this week.
