    so I was watching a livestream that Fanbyte did where Hunktears (Fanfyte writer and podcaster) showed a non-wrestling fan a bunch of wrestler pictures and it was hilarious
    and that introduced me to this dude, Black Taurus (spoiled for big)

    That's his RING GEAR, this guy fucking rules holy shit



    bonus clown wrestler fun fact: his first gimmick was the masked Machine Rocker, as part of Los Inferno Rockers, an evil rival Kiss-clown-group to Psycho Clown's Los Psycho Circus

    Taurus is a delight, was a highlight when I got back into AAA with regularity in 2018/19. Glad he found enough recent success during that time that he got bookings for (among others) MLW, TNA and PWG

    That is a ban that still somehow feels like a win.

    'Ripping your own shirt in half off your body' is a quality pop-off and should be used more often.

    All I know about the guy is what I've seen on AEW last week, and while he did a good job of showing his character, motivation, etc., his match didn't seem like anything special. What should I know about him?

    He's a huge AJPW fan and influenced by that style, but he came from Chikara so he's got a lot of lucha influence as well. He's been on the indies since the 2000s and been great on the mic the whole time.

    My introduction to Eddie was the lead up to the inaugural Chikara Grand Championship match against Quackenbush. The promos he was cutting in the lead up to that match were amazing, and the match was solid too. He was already nearly a decade in at that point, so it's awesome to see him getting signed now. I know he's had stints in ROH, NWA and TNA but this feels bigger.

    I Dont wanna be a downer.

    but like AEW has 64 guys on the roster, there have to be deep cuts coming after the pandemic relaxes right?

    I suppose it depends on if that third show ends up going ahead. Otherwise there's a bunch of people floating around doing nothing. And a bunch of international talent that still can't come over.

    Not all the contracts are necessarily long either; Cardona's currently on a five-appearance deal

  • BlankZoeBlankZoe Registered User regular
    Honestly AEW being open to shorter term deals and allowing talent to show up and get their stuff in and then go back to working in Japan or in the indies if they want to is a pretty good set-up and leaves the door open for more interesting situations than requiring everyone be locked in for huge deals does

    Remember when Jushin Liger randomly showed up in NXT for a single match? That ruled and WWE basically never does that nowadays

    Short contracts are good to kind of imitate territory days. Its better for everybody to let wrestlers get tv exposure then be able to go back to the indies and be a bigger draw. Then they learn more and can come back to a big pop (if crowds ever come back).
