I think some Highlights for me were the commentary team. I don't know if I have heard a group have more fun for an entire night. TAZ made a great dynamic.

Sting was brilliant as always.

I am not a big FTR but Dax getting hurt then returning to win was pretty good.

OC and Will Osprey was probably the best match.

They should have put the belt on Tanahashi because that gives Punk a storyline to go get the belt back. I think that is more interesting than Mox having it.

Totally agree. I've thought Excalibur and Taz should be the Dynamite commentators for a while, with Tony sticking to interviews and then Tony and JR doing Rampage.

Now I think they should add Kevin Kelly to Dynamite as well. The three of them worked great together.

Nothing like catching up completely on like the last 3 months of AEW only to watch a PPV where the crowd keeps going nuts over wrestlers I've never heard of.

So is watching New Japan a thing? Like with English commentators and everything?

Well it did recently come back on AXS. Plus a lot of the people on it used to work in NJPW like Kenny Omega and the Young Bucks. (And Rocky/Trent to name a couple more.)

Yeh, their streaming service offers English commentary. Kevin Kelly, who was on commentary for Forbidden Door, is one of their commentators.

Wrestling legend Ric Flair fears that he could die in the ring as he prepares for his historic finale.

Flair told reporters in Nashville while promoting his “Last Match” event he has concerns about his well-publicized previous health battles rearing their ugly head.

Chief among them is the pacemaker planted in the 73-year-old Nature Boy’s chest. Oh, and there’s the inner ear problems and the blood thinners he takes.

So, he plans to skip the blood thinners on the day of the match. And as for the pacemaker, he says if it becomes unplugged he’ll simply “plug it back in.”

“Now that I know I can do it,” Flair said, “I’ll be flying around in front of 7,000 people, probably not at warp speed.”
Flair will never not be carny. :messenger_grinning_smiling:

I think the dark order has ran it’s cours,time to take the mask off 10,and separate the dark order.
Preston has bags of charisma. Maybe just do UNO as the promo voice and Preston as the muscle.

I’m thinking a lot of the AEW originals are going to be leaving via lapsed contracts.

They are getting too many ex WWE and other big names that are going to swallow up the roster limelight.

Who?

I seriously don't know who half these people are, and it really, really annoys me when shows expect me to know these folks anytime they pop up. Most do not have the name recognition they think they do.

It's honestly a good opportunity to verbally build up a wrestler when they appear on TV, instead its simply..."It's blah,blah,blah!!!" like I should know their life story.

From the "Can't Forget Their Old Ring Names Department":

Good Ol' JR gave us not one but two Cesaro references on tonight's episode of Dynamite, and as a bonus we got a Ruby Riott shout-out from Taz as well!

I know I'm late on this but I gain a whole new appreciation for Kane. I mean, he was one of my favorite wrestler, but now guy is based as hell.
