    Awesomed for deploying Dafoe.

    NXT's recap show going into Mania weekend was a pretty clever solution. They have years of footage that the USA Network viewers haven't had access to. WWE's video packages are the one constant high quality aspect of their shows and editing videos can be done from home or at the very least in social isolation at an office. Hell the talking head bits seemed to be mostly pre-taped often in the cavernous void of the Performance Center and the backstage netherverse populated entirely by Finn Balor and some production equipment.

    It was also neat for anyone who hasn't been following the Gargano/Ciampa saga on the Network. Anyone who started watching NXT with its debut on USA just got brought up to speed of like four years worth of story in about an hour.

    I'm posting the link here, but go watch this on Youtube, and like the video, and subscribe to the channel, and leave positive comments:


    This was really fun to be a part of. I don't know when we'll get to do another show, but it was cool to do something before the UK started being put on lockdown.

    Maybe Tony Khan's benevolence is all fake, but I'll take his possibly fake natured but definitively good benevolence over WWE's very definitely fake and very definitely self interested "philanthropy"

    I guess I haven't seen Bart Gunn since I was a young lad and didn't realize how fucking big he was. I had it in my head that he was a small boi but nope!

  • ThawmusThawmus Registered User regular
    Also I've been listening to the AEW podcast, and in their episode with Billy Gunn, he once again claimed that he's seen Bart clear out 15 guys in a bar brawl before. Apparently during one brawl he only stopped when he got shivved with a broken beer bottle.

    He also told JR that if Bart was in it he'd win the whole thing and it was a bad idea if he wanted to put Dr Death over.

    i always thought bart gunn was the one who figured out "most punches thrown in a round" is a terrible metric and spent his matches just THROWING haymakers, but that may have been someone else

    Billy said in his interview with Austin recently that Bart still wants a rematch with Butterbean, because they trained him to box appropriately and that's what he tried to do, and got his ass kicked. Whereas when he looks at the tape, he thinks (I'm avoiding "realizes" because I'm not a boxing expert and am not sure this is correct) if he had just kept to haymaker throwing like he had been, that it would have maybe worked.

    This is maybe the more frustrating part of the Bart Gunn saga is that we can all agree that Vince fucked Bart Gunn with the Butterbean nonsense, but simultaneously Bart legitimately believes he could have won.

    Just finished AEW Dark. I wish they could find a good permanent tag partner for Sonny Kiss - he's really great in that format. I remember months ago he tagged with Dustin and it was a fun match and this week with Janela was good.

    I don't remember that, but I do remember someone (Severn, I think?) just spamming takedowns to run up his score.

    Most punches landed in a round was two points, while takedowns were one point each, so he built an insurmountable lead that way.

    Kiss and Janela make a very good team, and they have a definite odd couple vibe to them.

    That's what I'm thinking of then, which makes sense because Severn was a legit UFC guy and knew the Brawl For All rules were trash

    I guess they couldn’t get enough wrestlers willing to travel for us to have a crowd this time.

  • Sweeney TomSweeney Tom Registered User regular
    I think some of the lineup isn't going to happen/is being saved for the Blood and Guts ep

    Which, I hope the lumberjack match is part of because the less people the better/safer right now, if you're going to hold these shows at all

    Last week the guideline was no crowds of more than 30. This week it's no crowds of more than 10.

    It's also why they postponed Blood & Guts; that's 11 people in the ring alone.

    Brodie Lee cutting a promo while eating steak is great.

    Apparently he believes in Cody's rule. Daddy eats first.

    This was the thought my friend and I were having

    Making the ultimate evil of your wrestling federation's character be Vince is hilarious

    And then the Dark Order constantly recruiting talent, no matter how well or poorly skilled, definitely makes them the WWE

    I love that Brodie is using the same setup for his finish that Bray Wyatt does. Clearly he learned a lot about how to lead a cult from following Bray.

    You know that AEW’s running with a lighter crew when Brodie Lee only gets one spooky pervert hanging out with him.
