    AEW put Hager and Wardlow in a six sided cage.

    Clearly, they've been hanging around Impact too long.

    Not sure which is going to win out here tbh.

    It sounds pretty easy to goad Nick Gage to fight if that's what you're after.

    So one of the going theories for why Roman VS Rey Hell in a Cell was booked for Smackdown is that Roman and Rey didn't want to work this feud about family and fatherhood on Father's Day.

    ...and if you think about it in terms of spending weeks building to something while apparently forgetting to check the calander this might be as close as a promotion gets to booking Lethal Leap Year.

    I give them until the end of the year before they somehow work Cody and Brandi's kid into a storyline. There's no way Cody can resist it.

    Actually, bump that, the kid was already in a storyline. I forgot about the time Cody defeated racism by having a child with a black woman. Sorry, folks.

    As soon as the kid can walk, she is costing her dad a title match in the ultimate betrayal story.

    Was there a hot tag to Robert Gibson (well, as hot as a guy old enough to collect Social Security can manage)?

    I've only seen the Hager/Wardlow part of Dynamite so far and I am honestly surprised they handled it as well as they did.

    I was interested in it from a technical perspective, as in how they'd make a worked MMA match without it being hokey dogshit. Obviously they moved into more pro wrestling moves and such at the end, but the opening was interesting in that it seems they were doing some fairly stiff shots, but with the plan that any landed hit isn't followed up on like an actual MMA match would be. It was a very interesting balance that I think they pulled off well. And they were able to let Wardlow get some licks in without making Hager, an actual fighter, not look like an absolute chump. The finish was handled well too. I gotta give kudos to AEW.

    I'm sorry I'm a bad person I hate MMA and its intersection with wrestling and wanted it to be so bad they'd never do it again.

    Which, I still felt it was pretty bad but I'm apparently alone in that so ffffffffffffff

    I also felt it wasn't the best but honestly it was really just because the actual standing/punching parts looked really rough if you have an eye for MMA

    A lot of stuff just not really connecting and they should have just gone to the grappling a lot faster since you can make that look more intense if you need to

    Jesus. That completely undermines any mystique Hell in a Cell might still have.

    I totally monkey paw'd this. During the early stages of the Bianca/Bayley match they were doing some mat wrestling and I said it'd be amusing for a HIAC match to end with a roll-up. As it turns out, not so much.

    You're not alone. I thought Hager and Wardlow did fine, but the whole faux-MMA thing took away from the match way more than it added to it. It was still the same kind of things you'd see in a wrestling match, but with no ropes or turnbuckles or anything to play off of. It was wrestling but worse.

    I'm not a big MMA fan, so maybe I'm not the audience they were trying to get with this, but I couldn't give a single shit about worked MMA.

    I haven't watched Hagar/Wardlow fully, but what I saw seemed not good.

    I'm a big fan of MMA, but its really tough to fake as a wrestling style. MMA and Wrestling are good for different reasons and prefer to keep them separate.
