    Punk has been critical of the Saudi shows so I like to think he won't do it, but I didn't think he'd come back to WWE to start with so who knows.

    Well, he's technically working for Fox, right?

    Like...WWE isn't signing his paychecks. Fox is. Pretty sure he has zero connection to any actual WWE hierarchy. Isn't that the deal as far as we know right now?

    And if that's true, I'm not surprised he came back. People like to hear him talk. And if he can get paid to talk about wrestling (which I'm guessing he still enjoys as a viewer) and not have to deal with WWE directly, I'm not surprised he would come back.

    Plus, if he's technically employed by FOX and not WWE, it probably gives him more latitude to crap on the product more than he would be otherwise, which I'm sure he's looking forward to.

    I like that Nakazawa took it seriously to avenge Omega, and it failed horribly

    Jungle Express is entertaining to watch, but without Luchasaurus, I feel like they'll mostly just be mid card jobbers for whoever their opponents are.

    Which is a shame. Jungle Boy could be a great wrestler. Marco too, but they always play the angle that because he's 5 foot nothing and weighs like, 100lbs, you can sling him around the ring with one arm.

    I'm super excited for these shows, hopefully the tickets don't go on sale while I'm at work and then sell out in like three minutes or some shit.

    The Dark Order/Lucha event was like a goddamn Yakuza game and I loved every minute of it

    Darby's entrance is perfect and I also love that

    I also adore Awesome Kong's weird personal hair extension collection and will defend it with my life

    I assumed him being able to crap on the product as much as he wanted was written in to the contract or he wouldn't have signed.

    Alright, this is a good ep of Dynamite. We're getting story, we're getting feuds, we're getting interesting developments, and Jericho and MJF on the mic was a great spot.

    And there's still mystery and strange shit (Kong/Brandi). Best of all, it's not a cuck storyline, or about two overblown talent that I can't stand seeing continual pushes for.

    Is it just me, or are Britt and Bea looking better than in their previous outings?

    I thought it was pretty solid. A little more stilted and obviously coordinated than the best women's wwe stuff, but they def had it laid out as a pretty good match and put in the effort.

    Man, I coulda just went for spoilers of what the matches are going to be without the winners.

    Jesus christ, I watched NXT (because Io Shirai had a match) instead of AEW tonight, the women's ladder match was insane, and kinda hard to watch. It was very violent. Kinda forgot about the storyline running through out the episode during the last match until after the show ended. Keith Lee is great. I'm developing favorites, help! When does on-demand go up for AEW :P I like the librarian ladies character work :( (but she does need some wrestling experience).

    Fantastic promo work on AEW, they just work the crowd so well all the time.

    I know one of the commentators said we've seen the Wardlow teases for months but I only remember the one at the PPV before last so that was a bit of a dead debut. Seemed that way in the crowd as well.

    I'm not worried. Eventually AEW will bring in Eric Bischoff, who will then bring in Hulk Hogan, Kevin Nash, and Rick Steiner to be his top stars and AEW will be a joke within a year just like that other "Indie Darlings + Former WWE Superstars" company.

    I think the Elite guys are a bit too savvy to get there soon. Plus WWE is already in that business 1/2 way.
