    Same here. I saw him live once, and he put on a helluva show. Seen a couple of his Japan matches with Okada, which are incredible. But it kind seems like they’ve been de-emphasizing him in AEW since they got the TV show when they should be showing how special he is supposed to be. It’s almost as if Vince is booking him.

    Hangman Page, on the other hand, has skyrocketed with the opportunity, at least, from what I’ve seen.

    I think there's two reasons Omega hasn't been as compelling as he could be. First is that he has a VP title. Same thing can be said to some degree for the Young Bucks (who haven't had many shots at the tag titles) and Cody (who has mainly focused on getting MJF over). Second, Omega's work with Okada and Jericho in Japan was phenomenal, but a lot of the stuff he did to make a name for himself (wrestling a little girl and a broom) won't play to the mainstream American audience.

    All that said, his matches with Pac/Neville were phenomenal. Some of the best AEW has put out.

    Velveteen Dream is trending on Twitter ... and not for good reasons.

    Bronson is a beast. He's the youngest of Rick's three boys, who were all wrestlers and football players in high school. He's also had some tutelage on pro wrestling already in case football doesn't work out.

    Now, Scott has kids coming through the same high school that Rick's kids went to.

    I still prefer the NXT in-ring product on Wednesday nights, but Jericho on the mic for two hours is the best thing going in pro wrestling. I could listen to him talking about that “freshly squeezed idiot” all day.

    pronouncing ski-o-vone the same way he did on Nitro in 1996 just makes me happy.

    the bit about Britt Baker being brilliant for creating her own patients cracks me up too.

    speaking of color, Corey Graves with a nice Patriots burn, said Gronk would have all kinds of security to protect his 24/7 title at NFL stadiums, “hidden cameras, and he probably knows a lot about that.” or something along those lines

    Should have signed with the Raiders. His Dad already knows about Chucky.

    Just another way for the Ravens to stick it to Cleveland.
