    Jericho just released a new podcast with the former Revival. Haven't listened to it yet, but this should be a good one.

    Anyone feel they were watching WCW while watching the last match AEW? That was brutal.

    I thought that was fun. Helped certainly by taking advantage of it all being the Khan's land, so they had free reign. And I enjoyed Tony, JR and Excalibur being able to just go free on the mic without somebody like Vince screaming in their ear.

    This AEW brawl at the Jags stadium was nuts.

    I don’t know what was better, the action or JR and Schiavone’s commentary. JR even took a shot at the E calling hospitals as medical centers.

    Sammy took an absolute sick bump with the cart.

    All that brawl missed was a Dippin Dots cart. I think that had become a running gag of sorts for AEW.

    NXT was disappointing tonight. Built up as a takeover level show with 3 main event type matches and the 2 titles matcnes were schmozzy and lame. Bad news.

    looking forward to checking out this aew brawl tomorrow. If Hardy and Jericho are involved its probably hilarious

    NXT and WWE is going to be helped exponentially when they allow fans back in, even partially and socially distanced.

    That's what's helped AEW the last few weeks, having the wrestlers at ringside acting as fans. It gives the shows some background noise.

    And as has been made known, they just look like they're having more fun with the AEW broadcasts. The commentators are just shooting the shit and calling the moments as they're happening.

    NXT may have had the better pure wrestling lately (last night not withstanding), but AEW has been putting out a better overall product.

    NXT’s problem right now is that it has nothing to build to. They’re not going to do empty arena takeovers. So when you have a title match on TV its gotta deliver. None of the stories that were going on when the pandemic started are moving forward. Its stale.

    The new stories — Gargano and Candice’s turn, Balor’s attack, Ciampa and Kross — are great. But Cole and Flair were the focus last night and for me didnt deliver
