It's weird how there's way less hype over Aja Kong in AEW than I thought there would be.

It's Aja Kong, man! A friggin' living legend.

Part of that is due to everything else tbh. Visas have been so stingy/a point of uncertainty in wrestling lately she wasn't even included in any of the promo for this until last week despite having been announced back in Feb. Having her visa situation taken care of gets things back on track and lets them promote it more, but yeah it taking so long was likely another thing that was just out of their hands and they didn't want to do a bunch of promo on something that understandably could have fallen apart pretty quick

Kenny's having a new theme and it sounds like it's by choice. Something with the spirit of both his DDTand Devil's Sky songs and he's collaborating with someone.
I noticed they edited out Devil's Sky from the Jericho/Kenny brawl in both BTE and Road, so I dunno if it's entirely by choice. But I'm sure he's ready for a change anyway.

That was a really good BTE episode, loved the dig at WWE, the mailbag and both matches.

Those final two matches really show the depth of the card. Can't remember a US card like this where I thought every match had a chance at being 4 stars or better.

I'm very excited about this card. Man, I hope the camerawork/presentation is on point.
Might be some first show glitches but it should be great with the money they're putting into it. Expecting it to be a big step up from All In.

Whoever said Joshi could be AEW’s cruiserweights/luchadors is right on the fucking money.

Fuck it, book Kong vs Bull Nakano. Once in a Lifetime, End of an Era.

Yes I know Bull looks nothing like she used to, do it anyway

Looks like the Starrcast bundles are back up with tickets to DoN if anyone is interested.

Where is Double or Nothing streaming in North America? Certainly not paying oldschool PPV price for this, but will pick it up if it is reasonable.

15 hours away from TNT announcement
It'll be sort of interesting to see who they bring to upfronts to represent AEW and if that includes anyone outside of Bucks/Kenny/Cody/Hangman/Brandi/Jericho/JR.

Should be announced tomorrow morning alongside the TV deal.

Oddly enough, just searched on my TV (Xfinity) and found it... for 4.99 for the HD broadcast. I ordered it, as I am sure it's going to get canceled. Either way, why not.

I think barring a no show with people buying the PPV on ITV box office then the AEW weekly show will definitely be on an ITV channel. I think we'll see a live airing on ITV1 and it will pick up big viewing figures with people recording it and will air it at 8pm the next day on ITV4.
It’ll be on ITV4, they’re trying to build it as their sports channel. It could possibly be repeated on ITV1 late night, but ITV4 will definitely be it’s home.

Can't wait till tomorrow. Also thinking of going to the show in Chicago. They're bound to cook up something extra shit for that event.

I'm definitely not getting DoN on the itv ppv service after hearing how silly it is but I'd obviously tune in to a weekly show on itv4.
