    Card for the G1 tonight and my thoughts
    Yano, YOSHIHASHI, Ishii and Goto vs Taichi, ZSJ, Douki and Desperado
    Hiromu and Shingo vs Suzuki and Kanemaru
    Tanahashi, Cobb, Wato and Juice vs Switchblade, Gedo, KENTA and Taiji
    Okada and SHO vs Ospreay and Great-O-Kharn
    Naito and BUSHI vs EVIL and Yujiro
    Kota vs SANADA

    I think we get at least one turn: either SHO betrays Okada to join Ospreay and O-Kharn, or one of EVIL/Switchblade gets beat up by Bullet Club members. Wild card is SANADA betrays Naito

    For AEW, would it help if they had a promoter/commissioner/CEO character?

    Like, you’ve got Nyla/Vickie saying “we want a title shot” and Shida saying “I’ll take on anybody” but nobody in between to say why those 2 aren’t fighting. Might it help if somebody was there to say “Your ranking fell. Get a couple wins and we’ll talk.”

    Somebody to be the face of their Ranking System?

    That would make sense actually. I was thinking whenever they kept giving the Bucks fines that it would be better if there was some authority talking about it on camera or even suspending them a few weeks. Having it just be a side note in commentary really makes it less impactful.

    I imagine they don't want to make a commissioner or owner into a character/heel the way WWE does, because it could get old very fast but: we know who the owner of AEW is, and he's very vocal about the product, we know who is nominally in charge of the promotion itself, and they're on screen all the time, and also they want it to feel like real sports/competitions, and every sport in the US has a highly visible commissioner or...whatever title Dana White has. I get that they don't necessarily want to go down the same route WWE has on its main shows, but William Regal in NXT has largely shown that you can just have a character in charge of decisions like that without making them an absurd hindrance to things. His character there is, "guy who wants to put on a good wrestling show and keep talent from blowing up the whole fucking place with whatever absurd shit they want to do this week," and it works. They don't have to have the Young Bucks hit Tony Khan with a bedpan.

    Also like...they should have a character whose job it is to tell other people "no," before someone decides they need to run a story where one of his rivals gets mad at Cody for giving himself title shots or something. Because I don't know that they're going to have the sense to avoid that forever.

    Overall it was fine year all things considerng but honestly I didnt watch much it felt like my hype was absolutely shot.

    Ibushi is a rad winner, someone isn't leaving the WK main event alive

    Ibushi was totally concussed at the end of the match he needs some time off me thinks.

    Ospreay and Oka making a faction? weak.

    Also this has been the worst Young Lions class in ages

    Wato.... well sorry @PwnanObrien he sucks
    Oka yeah he aint doing it for me
    Big K left cause of injury
    There are other forgettable names who all retired/Left still as YL's

    I thought this was an excellent G1. Every night had bangers, people like Taichi, Cobb, and Yoshi-Hashi really stepped up. The crowds did a good job adjusting to the rules and did their best to stay hype even when they couldn’t cheer.

    They did pretty much the best they could have with the situation they had to deal with.

    Honestly my fandom of Wato started out ironic because he looks stupid but the fact that he uses all the Kung-Fu and Taekwondo moves from wrestling games like a create-a-wrestler kinda fucking rules. You'll be watching some tag match where he's not even in the ring then suddenly he comes in flying from off-screen with a kick like late 90s RVD.

    My first watch of the G1 has taught me that round robin tournaments are an excellent way to push a bunch of your talent and put on great matches, but also you need more than one Yano in the tournament because holy shit is it grueling, and at a certain point, uncomfortable to watch.

    I also learned that Jay White is an amazing heel, Juice is amazing, and that I never want someone to hit the Destino while I'm listening to the English commentary. Fuck I thought I hated Kevin Kelly already and boy I found new depths for that hatred, fast.

    Normally there's more than one "easy day" like Yano in a tournament but YOSHI-HASHI, Taichi and even fucking Yujiro decided to show up on their A game this year. There was no New Japan dad in the competition, the closest we got was Tanahashi who still has 8-pack abs. There was no Fale, thankfully.

    ...but hey BOTSJ is next month and maybe both blocks will get a young lion to maul. If nothing else Taguchi will probably fill half of his matches with weird butt related humor.

    As much as it sucks that WWE broke up Heavy Machinery, at least Tucker found a suitable replacement partner in El Grand Gordo.

    (If you're not watching Raw: yes, that's exactly what it sounds like.)

    Just starting raw. I hate, hate the fiend alexa bliss team up. She's my favorite wrestler on the roster male or female.

    But she looks really good tonight! She's always been kind of harley quinn, she looks beautiful! And hot as well the man in me has to say.

    I like the look, love alexa as a heel, and think she looks absolutely bad ass tonight I still hate her with the fiend.

    I hope to fuck they don't ruin her.

    No, it's bullshit they broke up . I may have preferred otis, but they were a great tag team and otis while gimmick will be old but funny in a few months.

    He's mid card at best and they should have never put the money on the bank on him. And I say this fucking loving him.

    Edit and If this is something that really happens
    I assume the broke them up when only otis for drafted to a side. I assumed it was something that happened but just now starting raw

    Retribution lost their first match to the Hurt Business.

    Then they got destroyed by the Fiend.

    Great start!

    We're only allowed to talk about how hot Tanahashi is in this thread. Sometimes Cesaro and Ibushi too.

    He had a match with Moxley, too. Pretty sure he was only there for the angle and they weren't planning on keeping him full time.

    Pursuing options and wanted New Japan more. They claimed to leave the door open for him to return, but obviously with corona making travel restricted and with mandatory quarantines, doing both wasn't a good idea even if possible and even if it was a deal he managed to reach with both companies

    If you want a similar thing look at Gallows and Anderson; they've made it clear they're doing both TNA and New Japan, and New Japan's actually supposedly verbally agreed to Gallows and Anderson coming back, but they can't do both at the same time, so they're only doing TNA right now until corona is less of an issue. Which will be a while

    The Orange County Department of Health is investigating 17 businesses where they feel COVID-19 may be spreading at a faster rate than other places. The county Health Officer believes young people are gathering in these places to cheer for their favorite sports teams and that these locations have specifically been mentioned by those who have recently tested positive. The Amway Center where WWE holds Raw and Smackdown on set at the ThunderDome, the WWE Performance Center in Orlando and WWE's set up at Full Sail University all made the list. WWE issued the following statement to WFTV, which ran the original story:

    “WWE is not open to the public, but rather operating on a closed set with only essential personnel in attendance. As part of on-going weekly testing protocols, Aventus Labs have administered more than 10,000 PCR tests to WWE performers, employees, production staff and crew resulting in only 1.5 percent positive cases as compared to the current national average of more than 5%. Additionally, extensive contact tracing takes place and impacted individuals are placed in 14-day quarantine and then only cleared after they test negative.”

    WWE admits to at least 150 positive tests
