LMAO. Typical WWE trying to rewrite history to give themselves all the credit. My favourite is that time they credited themselves for teaching Devitt/Balor how to work in front of a camera (something he'd been doing for a decade) and how to "time" an entrance.
That was my personal MOTN. I love the variety (a word WWE doesn't even know how to spell, let alone provide it) AEW provides. There should always be a place for the occasional hardcore match.
I'd argue that's the only place to have that match. There's no way to have that on TV.
Variety is the thing I enjoy most about AEW shows to date, and what I hope the promotion continues to be about. I'm still not sure if that style is for me - Moxley and Janela left me cold since it felt like random violence with no story, but then the three-way at All Out was one of my favorites of the night. I'm glad it's part of the menu even if I'd never seek it out otherwise.
The grand saga of Triple H and Indie Wrestling continues...
They print t-shirts that say AEW is for Everyone. For better or worse, it will be a variety show. If you don’t like a match or character, just wait ten to fifteen minutes and see if you like the stuff after it. This is what we’re getting, and I’m good with it. I just hope their PPVs get shorter. All Out would have benefited by being 20-30 minutes shorter.
Really? Cause he reminds me of a really bad, fake sounding and trashy WWE gimmick that he could have if he went over there.
I am not against hardcore entirely. I like things such as Texas Death matches or Last Man Standing or stuff like that as a means to sell a feud. I don't mind blood but compared to my view as a fan say ten years ago, I think the idea of staple guns, stop signs, VCRs, light tubes, tacks, is a detriment to the success of AEW.
I disagree. I really enjoyed the match and there are a bunch of people who did as well and like those kind of matches. I can’t see how you could come to that conclusion when it was only 1 match out of many in the show.I am not against hardcore entirely.

tbh AAA has a stronger talent base on it's roster (and of course great connections across Mexico) and AEW should certainly exploit that.I wouldn't mind seeing them go a little heavier into the AAA partnership anyway, at least once they've established the product. I think using more of their AAA talents would help AEW stand out as a product different from WWE with more unique characters. I don't know, would bringing in some of the clowns or the minotaur at some point be too much?
He's obviously still young and learning but when he went to DDT and was doing weird "you're racist because I'm white" promos it really made me question if he'll ever figure out a character haha
Oh no, it didn't hurt the PPV overall in my view. The PPV seemed solid and thus far, and it appears all of their offerings have been solid. I don't want to seem also that just because there is a match like that on the show, it means the whole show is terrible either.
That face makes him a perfectly memorable heel. I think he's going to pop big on TV for this reason. That first match against Cody is going to get some eyeballs for sure. The panda entrance gear alone will piss some people off.
The only ones I liked are the standard AEW logo shirt and the "AEW is for Everyone" shirt. Otherwise, yeah, embarrassing stuff.
I'm totally fine with hardcore matches but some people make it sound like Joey can't go without props when he's had a lot of fun matches that weren't like that in the past.
