Fuck it let's see how this turns out. Press Conference Stream: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7HLm_yrHcPQ
>no audio NICE START
>now it's offline WHAT A FUCKING START LMAO
Okay I guess this the actual stream
>all this fucking pyro
>SCU is in AEW Wow what a shock
This feels weird like really not much hype
>guy constantly waving flag in front of the hardcam >dead as fuck crowd >all this shilling for the jaguars JUST FUCK MY COMPANY UP
>wins and losses matter If your entire brand is that you're not your competition your just gonna end up like sega
>"thank you young bucks" <they haven't even done anything yet
>BIG ANNOUNCEMENT >It's just some no name chinks
So double or nothing is in may in las vegas? That's pretty close, hope they can get enough talent in that time to run a decent show
When are they getting to all the good stuff
>>133207 No fucking clue Apparently that chink promotion is run by CIMA
This really is the new wcw 2000s wcw
So the feuds going in are PAC vs Hangman, And MJF vs Joey Janela
ROH 2.0
>Anti-gun rhetoric Jesus this shit is gonna be pozzed
Oh shit they got jericho

This isn't ROH 2.0…this is WCW 2.0
I'd again like to repeat my thanks to certain individuals who all managed to pin these guys on January 4th.
>>133220 Hey taguchifag fuck off loser, Sick of you sucking off that old washed up fuck tanahashi. He's sucked in every main event I've seen him in and him and jay white aren't gonna draw shit. AEW and NJPW are gonna eat each other alive and indie wrestling will die just as soon as it was getting good.
>>133222 k have fun with the virtue signaling elitefags
>>133222 also lol get some better fucking taste dude. You'd probably support bitchy Shawn Michaels over best canuck Bret Hart.

Post yfw Jericho turns out to be an agent of Vince to sabotage the company like Hogan did for TNA.
>>133234 Wouldn't bet against that.
>>133216 Could you please elaborate, I don't know I could make it through a 1 hour Elite rally feat. American Football.
>>133236 They have show where the proceeds go to "victims of gun violence". You can draw your own conclusions there.
>>133237 You see, I was actually a little bit interested when I heard the "equal wrestle pay" thing, because I was wondering whether it meant that pay was by billing as opposed to contract, or whether it was true pay equality, not just the male and female talent, but the second match of the night paying equal to main event. I get the feeling it will turn into "hurr durr our main 3 female stars get paid the same as our main 3 male stars" and the card just ends up retarded "jobs for the boys" pay. At least billing pay makes sense from a consistency perspective, damnit.
>>133238 That equal pay shit reeks of WCW tactics if you can recall.
Equal pay sounds like a horrible idea for a promotion. People are gonna get around it with "producer" credits in the company but nobody wants to see the main guy (jericho/omega/ibushi) make as much as the opener chase owens
>>133240 Two things. 1) Chase seems to be staying with BC and NJPW 2) You are definitely correct that they are going to do the dodgy that way (just look at Brandi being the CFO), but this will still be interesting to see how it pans out. Will Ryback go there since he used to cry about muh equal pay?
>>133241 I don't want this to fail, it's just I keep getting war flashbacks to WCW with that equal pay shit. Like when Lanny Poffo basically got payed for doing nothing.
>>133241 It seems like it'd be a good choice for Ryback and the company to have him in to be a name but i get the feeling that would open the door for other WWE failures to come in and have the show become WWE MAIN EVENT 2™ I doubt Ryback would be anal about equal pay if he was on top though.
>>133247 Well it is Cody's ship, technically he counts as a WWE failure in his last couple of years with the company I do agree though, Ryback didn't complain about the pay until he started sliding down the card. >>133243 Same, to be honest I'm getting a lot of late WCW /Dixie Carter era TNA vibes from this, and that has me worried.
I'm a huge supporter of the Bucks and Omega, and have even grown to like Cody… But I feel skeptical about all this. I mean parts of it look great on paper, anons bitch about equal pay (I honestly wonder what that even means? They can't seriously be thinking of paying nobodies the same as Omega), but shit like healthcare for wrestlers is fucking amazing. Still without a working deal with NJPW (and in fact it looks like NJPW may be considering AEW a rival possibly), a tiny roster, and little information I'm just not sure how it's all going to turn out. Still, they've certainly got my attention and I'll hope for the best because good lord do I need a good alternative American wrestling show. This may also be the year I start watching MLW.
>>133250 It sounds like NJPW is reconsidering working with AEW now that omega AND jericho are going there. Especially with them running that G1 show in dallas this year losing their two guys they built this entire western expansion would kill it before it ever got really started.
>>133232 Tana underdelivers based on his hype. Him winning the g1 was stale, his matches with white last year were ass, and the only decent match he had in 2018 was with okada, who can drag a dead cat to a good match. He was alright in 2017 and before but he's gotten so much worse this past year I have literally 0 interest in seeing him wrestle in a main event. Fuck even nagata is better than him at this point but he isn't getting a title run anytime soon.
>>133263 His match with Ibushi was a banger, and him and White redeemed themselves with the best match of a show in King of Pro Wrestling. He's not highflying and he's more technical now. He's grown to do that.
>>133264 His match with white was nowhere near the best at kopw, it was legitimately awful, to be fair that was mostly due to white not having his wrestling match his character at all, and having the moveset and storytelling ability of a somehow blander cody. and him vs ibushi was alright but not great and significantly worse than their match last year, even if you put the match quality down to personal preference the overal night was completely ruined by the awful shibata spot at the end. considering they should be bitter rivals, having him come out and celebrate with tana felt forced, manipulative, and completely killed tana's push for me. It was a move made to get an emotional reaction from the crowd in that night, but in doing so completely killed years of storytelling and character building for shibata, just to help get tana that little bit more over. It sucked and it made his whole g1 win feel artificial. Even his guitar and flag waving at the end felt more like he was going through the motions rather than celebrating one of the biggest wins of his career. I like his slower grappling based offense more than his high flying really, he's lost his storytelling ability though, the only match that really felt interesting this year was him vs okada, everything else just felt off and lacked a lot of emotion from his earlier wrestling. I don't have any matchups I want to see from him with the current roster especially as a main event. besides shibata but they've clearly killed that storyline since shibata has no return timetable I bet
>>133269 idk I feel this entire year for him was pretty good. kopw was pretty trashy, the triple threat was a botch mess and I felt that White grew into his role. The Shibata shit can be shut down since they actually earned respect in a G1 match long ago and they're actually hanging out now. I felt the story in 13 was told really well. Guess you do prefer the faster paste shit maybe idk.
(24.73 KB 480x260 sadshii.jpg)

>>133269 reading any mention of shibata still makes me sad
(116.97 KB 1024x838 DwTtE1ZU0AARHvy.jpg)

>>133269 I was in attendance for KOPW, Tanahashi vs Jay White was easily the best match of the night, the crowd got into it more than any other match and the pop when Tana won was incredible. bolieve it or not, Jay White plus Gedo is the best heel in NJPW in years, he can really get under the skin of the fans. For G1 climax, I thought the finals vs Ibushi was great, one of my favourites of the year, pretty much everyone thought Ibushi would win but Tana won it in what some might say was an upset. As far as the Shibata thing: >Kenny accused you of using Shibata as one of your ploys. >Tanahashi: To be honest, even I was surprised when Shibata asked if I wanted his support at the G1 final. <That wasn’t your intention all along? >Tanahashi: Of course I knew that when I went out there with Shibata, that we’d get a huge reaction. But I didn’t use him to my benefit. https://www.njpw1972.com/41579 They patched things up and even tagged together years ago, it's kinda well known that they are friends now. Also I won't say Tana underdelivers on his hype, heck last year you could say he was less hyped than ever till winning G1 climax. Even after that most must have thought that Kenny would beat him, but then AEW was annouced and everyone shifted to saying Tana would win. Anyway, feels like you have a rather negative image about Tanahashi and Jay White, doubt that will really change henceforth but I guess that's just how you feel. want to ask, are you an Omega fan? Don't really mean anything bad by that but I want to know
(714.89 KB 929x588 ClipboardImage.png)

What did he mean by this? Secret WWE Agent confirmed?
>>133274 >>133234 called it
>>133278 Unironically all me tbh
>>133270 I literally said I don't prefer faster paced wrestling. I prefer wrestling with high emotion and good storytelling that's all. >>133272 I mostly don't like Jay white I was just being negative on tana to get a rise out of taguchifag who I don't like seeing suck his dick off constantly. He's a good wrestler but not great anymore imo, and I wanted to see exciting main events from NJPW again, which we haven't gotten since okada dropped the belt. None of the potential main events tanahashi can have are fresh or exciting to me, I don't mind watching tana okada or tana naito again but I've seen them a ton before and I don't think they're gonna be better with this version of tanahashi. I legit think Jay is trash though all his heat comes from gedo and interference spots, which is a crutch not a skill of the wrestler. He doesn't come off as a smarmy heel in the ring facially or offensively, it reminds me of how ambrose is in WWE now where he gets this massive character shift and nothing about his actual wrestling changes at all. He might be good at getting heat but I have no interest in watching the shows now because of it, it's kinda why I stopped remembering to make NJPW OPs and is also why I skipped WTL entirelly. I think it's mostly his suplexes they look like fucking ass and his dead pan selling makes everything feel fucking fake I'm still gonna watch NJPW I guess I just don't know what for anymore, all the guys I like are either injured, leaving, or pushed down to the midcard. I think I just want okada as champ again at least he made title matches feel like special events.
>>133304 > all the guys I like are either injured, leaving, or pushed down to the midcard Kitamura, Hiromu, Shibata, Kushida, just to name a few The Junior division didn't take that big of a blow compared to the Heavyweights but still, NJPW will have to either A) "Upgrade" some of the juniors into heavyweights, B) Graduate some Young Lions or C) Sign some outside guys Here I'm hoping for Pentagon Dark and Fenix
>>133305 The Junior division is still really hurting for top talent though, the tag division is fine but unless shingo makes a run for the title, Taiji is kinda alone at the top right now. A kawato return would really help them right now actually
>>133304 I see. I'll still disagree with Jay White but I can see how Gedo might be overshadowing him a bit. But recently every big heel in NJPW pretty much have been doing the same thing Jay and Gedo have been doing: Bullet Club kinda started the trend, AJ Styles, Kenny Omega till G1 climax 26 and LIJ Naito till he lost the IWGP Heavyweight title. All of them got heat from outside interferences Naito probably the only one to do it better like his long entrances, taking time to remove his suit and spitting at everyone. Jericho is the only solo heel and he does it well but tends to to use weapons too much. I still think Tanahashi can do good but by your expectations of wanting Okada tier great matches, I guess Tana has past his prime for that unless he has someone like Okada/Naito to play him off well as you say. >potential main events for Tanahashi Other than the typical Okada/Naito, I actually can't think of many great ones for Tana. Been a while since Ishii fought Tana, that coulf be good but I dont think it might happen. Suzuki could be a choice but even that is kinda old. Maybe Sanada/EVIL but I wasn't a huge fan of their previous clashes with Tana to put them in a main event spot. Jericho is the only big main event for Tana I can see right now. NJPW sure lost quite a lot of guys recently, some fresh faces would help. Tanahashi is still super popular in Japan so they cam make it work but I wonder about the overseas expansion, probably might face more foreign guys if they have title matches there frequently. >>133306 Only been a year for Kawato's excursion so he might take a while. At earliest i think maybe KOPW/Power Struggle like how Hiromu and Jay White returned. Jrs. are really lacking. Shingo might be the only real competition for Taiji. They've been weak in recent years but with Hiromu injured, Kushida leaving and Ospreay in NEVER, they've been hurt even more. Wonder who would be in the BOSJ finals now, only shingo really I feel from the current crop. Hope they bring in one or two guys before that.
>>133304 >I prefer wrestling with high emotion and good storytelling that's all. I think Tanahashi can still accomplish that. I also don't know why you're getting so buttblasted by me, I was just amazed at his G1 Finals performance and the way he could go at his fucking age and being happy to see him at the top again. And to be fair, you have to admit we didn't see shit with main events when Omega was champ either.
>>133348 Yeah we didn’t and it sucked. I doubt facing Cody twice was omega’s idea but even still him getting the win off Okada was a huge deal and I wanted whoever beat omega to be someone he could at least transfer that onto. >>133346 The difference between white and those other guys is all in the selling and facial expressions. When white goes for his interference it just feels formulaic and tired, how he’s doing in the match doesn’t influence when and how he interferes. I have given a ton of chances and an open mind to jay and he has sucked every time in ring. Maybe he just isn’t clicking with me but I don’t know how you can look at his soft shitty offense and deadpan selling and think anything good is going on there
>>133349 I understand that a lot of Tanahashi main events seem old to you and that I was kinda annoying with me marking out for him, I'm just really happy my guy got one more reign even if he might not get 1 defense in. We're at least getting main events now instead of Cody filled trash or toned way down G1 matches.
I'm just really mad we didn't get Omega vs Yano where Yano actually tried his heart out just to win the title.
>>133350 Tana as champion for one last reign is honestly a good story, I just don't think right now is a good time for it with everyone leaving/injured. He'll wrestle good main events, they just aren't as exciting to me as the matchups for okada, omega, or naito.
>>133354 Naito seriously deserves another reign, it baffles me how he hasn't gotten it yet and always being thrown into the IC title scene worries me that he may not get one or have it be a decently long reign. He'll turn 37 this year, moves good but I don't know how long they'll keep delaying it before it may be too late. Hope next year is the year at the latest. On another note, apparently WWE offered Naito a contract but he immediately turned them down. WWE, or Triple H maybe really goes for anyone. Surprisingly, Tanahashi has said that WWE has never contacted him. If they went for Nakamura, Omega, Naito, figured they might've at least tried to contact Tana too, I just really want to see Tana vs Cena** http://www.prowrestlingsheet.com/tetsuya-naito-wwe/
>>133354 To be fair, we've seen as much as we could with Okada as well, the next one to take the title off of Tana should be a Naito, he's the only main eventer besides maybe Suzuki that can be fresh for the main event scene, and I doubt either of them would drop the ball as hard as Omega did. >>133356 He should at least be the one to take it off of Tanahashi, so Okada wins the G1 and Naito can finally beat him. First things first though, is to fill the void Omega left, if he's leaving for good. As much as I feel White has evolved, I still feel is not quite there yet. Also, on the WWE stuff, I think they know full well that Tana and Okada are THE guys right now, and the fact that even though Tana has been killing it lately, he's still 42. We don't know how much longer he'd have.
>>133356 >>133358 Naito deserves the title more than anybody but hes gonna be forever in the IC title picture to try to bolster it as a co-main event title. He has more history with the IC at this point and i dont think chasing the HW belt would fit naito's character right now.
>>133193 I heard that Cody, the bucks and Billy Gunn have creative control, is that true? Wonder how that'll turn out and if/when the case arises that they're abusing booking or whatever. Also Double or Nothing seems to be their next show with nothing else in between as of now, wonder what's the plan henceforth and then after Double or Nothing. Also about championships. inb4 Cody becomes their main champion and the bucks become tag champions. Or maybe they'll put themselves in the inaugural title match and lose to appear gracious

>>134504 I think goodish chance on kenta ( and probably the best pick out of the bunch). The ambrose thing is a work pretty sure.
>>134504 KENTA should replace KUSHIDA in NJPW
>>134524 Kenta's probably wants to be back to being a top dog so he's not going there if it's to do that.
>>134520 From the looks of it, it's not a work.
>>134525 Plus because of his 205 live demotion I totally forgot that he competed with heavyweights now in Japan.
>>134520 >The ambrose thing is a work pretty sure. I know it's wrestling but not everything is a work. That said I think it's too early to assume he's going All Elite, he very well may, but he may also just be taking some time off. Only time will tell.

>>134792 Honestly the more I think about it, and I say this even as a fan of the Bucks and Omega, this really seems less like All Elite Wrestling and more like SoCal Wrestling, it seems to have a lot of the vibe and mindset of SoCal people in it which is a little progressive for most of the rest of the world. We'll have to see how it works out, I mean if their diversity hires can't wrestle then it's going to be a problem. By the way, there were people commenting on the twitter post like "I'm so glad this isn't a publicity stunt".
>>134793 This sucks, Omega was the one elite dude that I wanted to stay, and he joins this stuff? lol
>>134793 I think people didn't think it was a publicity stunt because they didn't bring up that he was a tranny. I didn't even realize it till someone posted it later he honestly just looks a shorter tamina so I didn't really think too much about it. This and that faggot at the beginning has me doubting this shit hardcore. At least lucha bros will be cool.
I wish AEW to succeed, because WWE really needs competition, a reason to move its lazy ass and get the product better. 2018 was a very boring prowrestling year to me, I mean as someone who only watched NXT/RAW/Smackdown.
>>134810 >NXT/RAW/Smackdown. You're doing it wrong then. NXT is the only real pro-wrestling show there to begin with. RAW/SD is just boring.
Really hope they don't mess up the NWA with their joke wrestling. Kind of wanted to see MJF in NWA already
>>134818 As far as I know, NWA is still it's own thing and isn't really partnered with AEW yet. Cody vs Aldis at All In was a proper NWA match so even if they do partner up, Billy Corgan probably would make sure they don't fag shit up too much.

"What I realized [talking to AEW] was I really don't care about money. … AEW said they just want me in their ring in some form. The ideal for them was for me to move to America and be there full-time. I turned them down just after Wrestle Kingdom. … If I went it would be the end of my career. There wouldn't be anywhere else to go after that. No step up, nothing left to do. That would be the last step to make, and after that things would just go down. Great money, but I want to keep developing." >Getting back to NJPW, Ibushi noted he still feels the best place to change the world is in NJPW where his top three desired opponents, Jay White, Kazuchika Okada, and Shingo Takagi reside. Ibushi also said NJPW would be where he ends his wrestling career. >"Kenny [Omega] wants to change the world with wrestling. I think to change the world with wrestling, New Japan is the best place to do that," Ibushi said. "That's where he and I differ. I can do all that here. [Of] all the places I've been, NJPW is the highest level. I really wanted to lay my cards out and shut down the 'What about Ibushi?' talk. Osaka was that chance. The Ibushi institute is on hold, I'm exclusive [to NJPW]. … This is the last decision I will make in my career. I'll end my wrestling career in NJPW." Translated by NJPW announcer Chris Charlton. But one guy on twitter seemed upset with the translation, don't know how accurate it is but oh well. https://www .wrestlinginc.com/news/2019/02/kota-ibushi-reveals-why-he-chose-njpw-over-aew-651162/ Still tells us a lot. From this account basically AEW offered him a ton of money and he would have to remain in USA, none of which interests him. I guess they still are working things out and don't really have much of a long term plan for wrestlers now, or even a short term one and just want to sign guys up and think later I guess. Also I'd be amazed to see Ibushi end his career in NJPW. Can't wait to see Ibushi vs Shingo as well whenever that happens. Also has Ibushi ever faced Okada? Seems not Tiger Mask W doesn't count.
>>135339 Shingo vs Ibushi sounds great. I hate that hes still relegated to hr heaby. I think Ibushi has had a g1 match against Okada but i could be wrong.
>>135346 >Ibushi has had a g1 match against Okada Looks like he did, free match posted by NJPW

Ross did say the AEW TV show will air on a major network that we all have access to. >Ross also said AEW is going for a more athletic presentation compared to what we see on TV from other promotions these days. >"I think what they're shooting for is a more athletic presentation," JR revealed. "It will hopefully be less eye rolling than the sophomore drama class trying to convince you in a 10 minute promo of anything they're saying. It's too long. Our audience can't handle that." https://www.wrestlinginc.com/news/2019/04/jim-ross-reveals-big-news-on-the-first-aew-tv-show-652774/ 2 hour long TV show huh and in October, quite a while to go there.

>>142563 Calling it right now. This is not going to end well for those involved. I say that as someone who fucking hates the current WWE product and would like nothing more than to see an actual competitor to Vince's garbage emerge. I hope I am completely wrong about this, but I see AEW crashing and burning in a spectacular and incredibly embarrassing manner. The precedents they are setting for themselves do not bode well.
>>142764 I think DoN will be decent, after that I dont know, they will truly be tested once their weekly show begins. They have all the tools to succeed but their SJW/reddit attitude is the probably the greatest thing against them for me amd could be their downfall. Sounds weird but while there's always a lot of postive news about AEW, always have an uneasy feel looming about.
>>142764 >>142766 It doesn't help that it seems that they're spending money like it's candy, along with the reddit tier attitude and woke shit you guys mentioned.

So after watching I made some comparison to WWEs current year +4 product: The virtue signaling is bullshit but any company that wants to do business in this environment has to have that shit. Fuck this country. Justin Roberts is a good announcer, they never should have let him go. Production feels different than WWE, doesn't have the autism feel that Kevin Dunn and Vince use. The crowd and chants are legitimate, no piped in chants or crowd muting. Fucking love Awesome Kong nogging out and destroying bitches. But the women's wrestling isn't any better than WWE except not as many botches. The commentary isn't quite as annoying as WWE but when they put that woman on commentary it was fucking cringe as shit. And this isn't to shit on WWE because I still watch it, but if AEW can be consistent with these good aspects and improve others then they could be some serious competition possibly leading to a better product on both sides.
Hangman Page has won me over. I never saw anything in him when he was in new japan but on an American stage I can see him getting a lot of fans behind him and having some banger matches with the top of AEW. His theme is pretty great too. Who's your favorite undercarder so far? Can we get an AEW board flag just to even things out?

Someone tell me what I'm missing. I'm just not sold. Can they figure it out? Sure. But not sure why the fuck everyone is so positive about it. Matches were overall good, but most were spotfests that were littered with refs not caring about the rules and the wrestlers not caring about winning. And the best match of the night was ruined a minute later by Cody picking up a mic and throwing away the entire build up and story they told in the ring. Am I supposed to be just giving them credit for doing the show? >>143002 What did Hangman do to win you over? The thing that stood out the most was how doing a kip up healed his injured knee.

People are just happy to see storylines outside of wwe work. They havent done anything amazing but as far as being a watchable product or "alternative" they did well.
>>143009 Just don't see it yet for Hangman, but willing to bolieve that could change. Jungle Boy, Luchasaurus, and especially Orange Cassidy were all way more interesting and felt like they are waiting to BREAK out. And my first time seeing any of them was last night. Hangman feels like a friend along for the ride, and he's got way more experience and exposure. >storylines outside of wwe Not sure what you mean. All other promotions have storylines, too. >as far as being a watchable product or "alternative" they did well. Is it the ambition they have, then? An alternative putting on a solid show, which this still was, is not anything we haven't seen before.
I liked the show, but Cody and his sjw shit just might destroy wrestling. https://twitter.com/AndreasHale/status/1132644624030240769
>>143010 Youre right about this not being groundBREAKing at all. TNA has been putting out consistently better storylines and ppvs than wwe but people dont care because its too late and they dont have the star power. RoH had a bit of star power when they had Cody and the Bucks and Omega coming over occasionally but the 3 star machine cody never managed to do anything of note over there and RoH tv is dogshit so they couldnt have satisfying storytelling. AEW atleast so far has all the pieces it needs to be good. its just shiny and new, but everyone puts their hopes into because they WANT it to be great even if it isnt yet

>>143011 >Cody and his sjw shit just might destroy wrestling. Honestly it's already so prevalent, it almost seems inevitable anyways. Just hope that other promotions don't follow them because they set some stupid standard or whatever. >>143010 >Hangman feels like a friend along for the ride That perfectly describes how I see him. He seems like he has potential to BREAK out but he's always in the Elite's shadow as their bitch. Maybe if he can build himself up, he could have an inevitable crowing moment of winning the AEW title and could establish himself as a top guy by then. Speaking of which, thoughts on the title? It looks ok I guess, not too spectacular but not terrible. I'd say Omega would be good to be the inaugural champion. There's hype around Moxley and he'd be a decent choice too but I would rather him be the 2nd champion. Heck Jericho kinda deserves a reign too. It would be one of those three guys I'd say.
>>143013 >its just shiny and new, but everyone puts their hopes into because they WANT it to be great even if it isnt yet Think it's actually desperation/dissatisfaction with WWE or more just bandwagon shit? And hopefully they're actually something good and a decent alternative by the time that sheen wears off. Unless we just end up with blind AEW fanboys. But hey, that'd be nothing new.

>>143020 Page vs Jericho Meh, Page still has a way to go, doesn't even seem like a real contender. I don't like Cody in the ring but he still has that stature of a top guy to compete for the top prize. Heck they should've just made the main event the bout for the title. The next two PPVs seem to smaller ones so the next big one is All Out at the Sears Centre, basically All In 2, so I guess that is where the title match will happen. Still can't really picture Page in the main event of a big show like that but he might do well enough.

>>143039 If you really look at it wrestling isn't about politics aside from those that go on in the locker room. I most wrestlers respect the line they draw between their fiction and reality and that's why they play characters and don't bring their own personal bullshit in to it. This is why so many female wrestlers are shit, they don't get that divide between the person in the ring and the person at home. This is why I still love Benoit, he'll always be a great wrestler even if he was a terrible person.

Those who are complaining that the presentation, aesthetic, and overall feel of this PPV seems to be like ROH (and even WWE-tier in some instances), need to remember that this is their very first show. I'm 100% sure they'll find their voice overtime and the production quality will improve. Unless all of this bitching was just shitposting (you know, just pretending to be retarded lmao). They're successful with this first show in terms of ticket sales and PPV buys, and that's what matters. It's just going to get bigger. And honestly, Vince needs a good kick in the balls after pretty much destroying and then monopolizing the industry itself just to put on 2 weekly shows in the current year that have only 25-30 minutes of wrestling on them. Speaking of which, I seriously hope (and willing to bet) some of the unpushed, mishandled, and/or disillusioned talent joins this company in the future. >El Generico >Gallows and Anderson >Scott Dawson and Dash Wilder >Tenille Dashwood >Claudio Castagnoli >Shinsuke Nakamura >Samoa Joe >Kana And that's not even mentioning the non-WWE talent >Eli Drake >Marty Scurll >Matt Cross >Neville >Kota Ibushi >Zack Sabre Jr. >Shawn Spears All those would be fine additions (oh yeah, and CM Punk would 100% take a huge bite out of WWE's audience if he were to join).
>>143069 >Ibushi They asked him to come along but he refused because they didn't really have a plan for him and worst of all he would have to shift to America, which he didn't want to. He said that he's with NJPW basically for life.

>>143069 I usually expect to be let down when shit like this is hyped to the extent it was. Seeing the librarian shit and the BTE intro didn't help either, and just felt like it should've been kept on youtube. Then the actual show started and completely exceeded my expectations. The matches were really good, especially the last three. I'm curious how their TV show will turn out. I feel like the Good Brothers are almost guaranteed, and it would be great to finally see them be booked well again. Eli Drake would be a great get for them since he is a lock on the mic, and improved a good bit inring before Impact released him. Tenille would be great too, she's can be a stellar aussie shitposter whether face or heel. I guess nearly anyone from that list could show up at some point (Shawn Spears already did), although I don't want to get my hopes up for who they might sign but they are going to get Bo Rotunda and rocketstrap him brother Bolieve that

You guys think Ziggles will ever jump ship? He'll turn 40 next year, so maybe he might choose to remain in WWE heck i think he could do well in NJPW too. Either way I still don't think he has the guts to do it.
>>143006 >not sure why the fuck everyone is so positive about it People are fucking desperate for something other than WWE. That said, I'm not convinced either. As I've stated previously I want to be wrong, but nothing about AEW stands out to me yet as capable of longevity (Jericho aside) and their doubling down on kike SJW bullshit is not going to do them any favors with anyone outside of blue haired bull dykes and vaguely effeminate niggers. We'll see if I'm BTFO in the coming year or so tho. >>143017 >>143020 Evil Pudgy Jericho should get the strap first to give it legitimacy and build heat and then drop it to one of the two others you mentioned after a lengthy feud. That would be smart business. If they give it to Page they are shooting their promotion's main title in the head before it's even out of diapers.
>>143064 I'm not a female wrestling fag. I just know Joshis are the best of female wrestlers. Anyone with an eye can see that.
>>143070 Kenny actually didn't ask him so they he could stay in Japan and chase his dream.
>>143041 Reminds me of this Austin ECW promo.
>>143087 >Joshis are the best of female wrestlers The best turd in the world is still a piece of shit. Women still can't really wrestle. Which is why historically they have been mostly involved in the wrestling business as a sideshow and/or sex appeal. The business was better off then and it would be better off now if those running it would just admit that women will never be as capable and entertaining in the ring as the men are. Same with almost every other athletic activity. Men are more physically equipped and therefore produce more results. It's just biological. Furthermore, have you seen how much more often even the "best" women wrestlers botch shit up and injure themselves and other female wrestlers? It's stupid and unsafe.
>>143092 Have sex, FUCK MY ASSHOLE PLEASE.

Real question is ROH finished?
>>143143 >inb4 Impact and ROH merge together ti save their asses
>>143163 Impact is a cockroach that continuously survives when you think it will close. It will be fine. ROH probably would need something like that if it really ends up in a dire shape, also since they've been so shit of late especially with their terrible showing at G1 Supercard, lost the faith of many guys. Who do they still have now? Jay Lethal and Marty Scurll? Even Marty will leave for AEW once his contract is up.
>>143101 >people who don't like female wrestling haven't had sex >but losers who lust after female wrestlers and spend all day fantasizing about them are actually Chads Nice fantasy you have there. Honestly putting having sex with a women on some pedestal like some unachievable goal says more about you buddy, most people just fuck sluts and get it over with.
>>143167 Sluts are the best
>>143092 Nigger, joshis actually have good matches. Not saying they're the best I saw but absolutely shit on any other western women wrestling with them having a shit ton of botches.
>>143170 Where do they even wrassle? I want to watch cute girls powerbombing each other in idol outfits. Is it just NJPW or is it some other company without free streams?

lol you fuckers seen this? https://twitter.com/AndreasHale/status/1132644624030240769 >“I told Brandi one time that I don’t see color and she said ‘well, then you don’t see my experience,’” - @CodyRhodes on how being in an interracial marriage has helped with diversity in @AEWrestling and why diversity will be a way of life and not a publicity stunt. Between that, banning edgy fans from attending and having ugly trannies in their show I'm glad this trash's gonna bomb harder than Lucha Underground by the end of the year.

>>143179 NJPW doesn't, but TJPW does (Tokyo Joshi Pro Wrestling). They're mostly pretty green though. There's also Stardom which might be more what you're looking for. I'm not all that familiar with nip female wrestling, but I'm pretty sure there's some other feds as well. There's free matches on youtube/dailymotion you can check out, and Taima has Joshi tube every now and then. Also, XWT.
>>143190 have sex E drone FUCK MY ASSHOLE PLEASE freak
>>143242 Wew, what filters to that
>>143244 in cel
>>143190 Honestly, they can put up good shows like DoN but internal pozzed shit like this will eat them out eventually. I know they'll give more creative freedom to wrestlers than WWE but I wonder how soon it will be before some wrestler gets fired for making "problematic" comments in a promo or so.

>>143190 >well, then you don’t see my experience Brandi is gonna be the one who drives the company into the ground, isn't it ?
>>143248 She's their Stephanie, probably even be worse than Steph. Plus Brandi competes too, only saw her in Impact when she debuted but she was so green and bad, even worse than Eva Marie back then. Hope she improved since then, doubt too much though. WWE did one good thing in that they recognized she has no talent and made her an interviewer instead.
>>143241 Thanks. >Taima has Joshi tube every now and then Isn't Taima pretty gay on top of English commentary?
>>143257 Taima can be pretty gay but there's a ton of stuff to watch in /joshi/, be it live or a link in the playlist which you can open in a new window. Pretty sure all commentary is in Japanese, but I usually just tune in for TJPW if it's live (which usually doesn't even have commentary)

>>143296 It looks pretty good despite the community, thanks. Btw, is there any all in one place to see future joshi matches or only in each fed's site? Live shitposting is always fun.
>>143253 Further evidence that women don't belong anywhere near wrestling outside of being eye candy. Steph is pure cancer for the WWE and so shall Brandi be for AEW.
>>143246 i thought the same thing, when they have really good talent, it will do well for their parts, but slowly and surely the pozz will drag everyone down
Listening to Dean's Moxley's interviews has me thinking AEW could be great, but Brandi's nigger faggotry is definitely worrying. At least neither the tranny or flaming faggot went over at DoN, but who knows how pozzed they'll get once they start TV.
>>143398 Brandi, but Cody and the bucks are virtue signaling faggots too.
pretty decent match that new japan gave away here
hey bro fyter fest is on
Yeah, You can catch Fyter Fest anywhere on twitch right now.

AEW is pretty ok so far. This is pozzed as fuck sadly, but by now, i hadn't had much choice but get used to it. The lows are painfully low but give it time and it'll be pretty good. I'm fairly optimistic…just, someone get Kenny some good taste, inbetween undertale and SAO, he, at the very least, needs better things to cosplay.

So, from what I've seen of it so far AEW seems to be a wrestling promotion for homosexuals.
>Fight for the fallen >AEW has stated that all of the event's proceeds will be donated to victims of gun violence. This event is sponsored by Farah & Farah and the proceeds from the gate will go to Jacksonville's Victim Assistance Advisory Council to help victims of violent crimes Their October PPV will probably have all their earnings donated to Susan G Konman Breast cancer.

>>143092 >women still can't really wrestle >not knowing how good Bull Nakano, Aja Kong, Meiko Satomura, Jaguar Yokota, Manami Toyota, etc are/were. You are willfully fucking stupid. Good god.
>>144909 Every time they do something good like brining the joshi wrestlers from TJPW or Cody vs Dusty, I remember they hired the uber-faggot Sonny Kiss and thay tranny abomination Nyla Rose and my hopes for AEW drastically go down My opinion of this frankenstein of a promotion is very 50/50, on one hand I think they have a good chance of doing great and they have some legit good wrestlers that could draw (namely Lucha Bros, Luchasaurus & Jungle boy, Elf king and Jericho), on the other, they have done a lot of really questionable shit in their shows so far, like letting Omega do his shit taste-tier cosplays, the Librarian skits, that not-royal rumble, etc., shit like that on regular TV will cost them hard >>144924 I'm honestly convinced that the only women who can wrestle are jap girls, and mexican lucha girls to some extent,
>>144925 Even Madusa who's said to be the best American women's wrestler, only got good by wrestling in Japan at AJPW.
>>144924 Not everyone gives a shit about what goes on in Japan.

Say goodbye Matt. Also AEW just put on their best show ever with no audience.
(8.85 MB 960x540 matt_teleports.webm)

I wish webm related didn't get such a huge backlash. I love ridiculous shit like this, it reminds me of good old Lucha Underground (RIP). BROKEN Matt absolutely should be able to teleport, but faggots screeched about it, and then AEW ran damage control saying it was just holograms. Fucks sakes.
>>147135 It's true. That said I think part of this is also matt getting his faggotry out a little. he's been cooped up so his first stuff won't be his best. I'm really looking forward to this feud.
