Jim Ross, at least for one night, was back to form for the first time in years. He really elevated this show on commentary. He was fucking hype the entire time. I hope I have that much energy at 67.

I don’t watch wrestling and I’m most definitely the farthest thing from a wrestling fan.

Watched the first episode and I was very impressed with how entertaining it was to me.
This weeks episode? Fucking. Amazing.
Private Party tag team match was the highlight of the show for me. So many cool moves and flipping and uhhh, just every about everything was awesome.
Will definitely put this on my regular watch list.

My mum was the one who got me into wrestling when I was a wee lad. She stopped when I stopped around 2001. She still loves the Rock and will watch anything with him in it, but she hasn't watched wrestling since 2001.

She has sat down for both episodes of Dynamite and gotten super excited. She also had a blast with the women's stuff because when she stopped, women's wrestling was still mostly bikinis and mud wrestling etc.

Is this your first go around with wrestling or have you tried to get into it before?

That’s awesome. Glad to hear you‘re liking it.

One of AEW’s goals is to attract people like you. When wrestling was hot, everyone watched it, not just wrestling hobbyists.

Glad you're here.

I think a future litmus test for anyone will be to show them the YB vs PP match. It's got to be one of the better matches I've seen. (The better ones were 15 years ago and I can't remember which ones they were!)

Nice one. The AEW thread has been pretty posi so far in general so hop on board! There is some fun stuff to catch up with between episodes.

I’ve tried to get into it a few years ago I wanna say?
I think I watched a Wrestlemania once a few years back but I bounced off it pretty quickly.
Plus the way that WWE has handled itself as a company disgusts me soooooo
I figured I would start anew especially with how many folks have been hyping this shit up and I’m tell ya, I don’t regret it thus far.

Edit: also Sammy Guevara is a cutie so that helps :p

Darby flying down the ramp on a fucking skateboard at Jericho is the best thing I've seen in wrestling all year. It's so refreshing seeing a company put in work to put over a young talent with the intent of building them to be a star.

If this was the WWE he'd have been jobbed out to Orton several times in a row.

I thought earlier today that I wanted to see Darby skateboard down the ramp at some point...but didn't post about it. Didn't imagine it would happen tonight!

Do we know for sure if Marty Scurll is headed to AEW? Honestly I would love to see all of Villain Enterprises (not inc, lol) come over. The more factions the better in my opinion.

That Jericho promo was one of the best promo's I've heard in a long time. Overall a fantastic show. So nice to see a show put over the young talent for a change.

- Never seen Private Party before. I am a fan now.
- That Jericho promo speaks for itself.
- I just can’t get behind Spears and Baker. Baker caught my eye at All In but since then she’s seemed so lifeless.
- Darby is awesome.
- I love how over Riho has become.
- Omega is a real far cry from who he was last year and I just don’t get it.

Really solid show. Preferred it over NXT this week.

I have to say that I haven’t had a chance to watch a ton of AEW but what I am seeing is really scratching that itch of what I used to love about Pro Wrestling. Fucking amazing.

Week 2 of AEW was better than the 1st. Overall pacing, match layouts, storytelling, and intrigue built for upcoming events were all stronger. Very fast and fluid 2 hours. They have a super solid foundation here that should only get better as more and more shows go by and they can utilize backstories built over the next 6 months to develop rivalries.

- Omega is a real far cry from who he was last year and I just don’t get it.
Kenny Omega was part of company going through a historically incredible run right now, with multiple world class wrestlers who are all putting on 95% of the 4.5+ star matches every year for the last 5 years. It was only natural that he would downshift in AEW. He's also clearly being put into a position where he'll have to climb the ladder before becoming the Best Bout Machine again. Give it time.

Just look at it like this: New Japan lost prime Nakamura, AJ, and Omega, and are still amazing right now. They're on a totally different level. Omega isn't surrounded by that in AEW.

It's kinda crazy that just 2 weeks in and the show is this damn good.....just wait until they nail the production, camera cuts, etc. and all the guys get more accustomed to each other.

Like 2 or 3 months down the line this show is going to be so goddamn good....I mean even better than it is now.

You‘re coming in at a perfect time. Never been easier to be a wrestling fan without watching a second of WWE programming.
