    Suzuki's match last night felt like distilled NJPW and just, man

    Imagine seeing last night's card a year ago, it'd be pretty hard to believe it wasn't just a fan list

    I actually thought AEW was getting too predictable and then they had Deeb stop Shida's trophy win and put the belt on Sammy and I was legit shocked at both.

    I wasn’t too shocked by Sammy’s win (it was time for him to beat someone further up the ladder than Shawn Spears). I was pleasantly surprised by Shida losing, just because I think that’s a way more interesting potential story.

    Yeah I've been anticipating a heel turn for Shida to be honest.

    One thing I've noticed WWE does that reminds me of a shitty habitual liar is to say "coming up NEXT" and then what actually comes up next is a completely different segment. It's a little unimportant lie but it happens several times per show. It also must be extra mind boggling for live audiences to witness one side of a match come to the ring and sort of mill about for three minutes of commercials then another three minutes while completely unrelated backstage segments and video packages roll before their opponent makes their entrance only to have a match that goes five minutes.

    I'll always remember being there live for a trios match where one side was Cesaro, Ziggler and someone else. They came out first, then had to stand around forever like you said. So they were pointing at the screen and shit talking the other promos and such, cracking each other up.

    Then during a commercial Cesaro just started running the ropes over and over for at least a minute straight, and Ziggler was completely losing his shit, dying laughing as Cesaro just kept going and never slowing down.

    The leaked Full Gear card included Danielson vs. Moxley, as I recall, and that does seem to be the most obvious way for that bracket to shake out.

    Miro’s so distraught that he can’t even have sex with his very flexible wife. Your heart goes out to him.

    ...no, I'm pretty sure God is at least passingly fond of Miro.

    CM Punk complimenting Serena Deeb's "fantastic head of hair" is a pretty good continuity nod.

    If we don't get Bryan vs Eddie I'm going to be the saddest boy.

    On the other hand, if we get Bryan vs. Lance Archer that'll further AmDrag's Suzuki-gun feud and build to him facing ZSJ.

    I think Danielson vs ZSJ is my number 1 most desired match (Golden Lovers for all of the belts was high up there too, but of course weve seen that one a few times.)

    Sadly Danielson Vs ZSJ will never happen because nobody can get in touch with ZSJ since he apparently hasn't owned a phone since Summer of last year.

    Everyone is different. Everyone is special.

    I have no idea what I did to anger/dissapoint Shida oyabun, but I promise to atone.

    And what does it say about me that the thing that most excites me about that image is the perfect grip on the suka?

    Just finished watching last night's AEW and I am usually the last to criticize a match but holy crap I can't imagine putting that women's match in the middle of the show. There are so many great talents in the division that could have put on a better show. If you wanted a Penelope win at least use someone like Kilynne King who does a great job on Dark - but either way the match just sucked the life out of the show. Heck, a squash by Abadon would have been better TV.

    Edit: also to add something positive, I love the addition of Bobby Fish. He allows a physical style of match we didn't see much of except for some of the recent Moxley matches with folks from Japan.

    I don't really keep up with NJPW these days but went to the Strong taping last night and overall it was a pretty fun show.

    Fred Yehi vs Jay White was my most anticipated match and easily the best of the night. It's been forever since I've seen Yehi in person and he is just as fantastic as ever. He's really one of those guys who's so good the fact that he hasn't been picked up by a big company is kind of a head scratcher. The crowd was against him at first (though I think that's mostly because they were SO into Jay White), but he won most of them over by the end with his disgusting stomps and limb twisting.

    Also loved the tag match of Ren Narita and Clark Connors vs Ospreay and TJP, despite those two. It seems like crowds in this city take every opportunity to shit on TJP and that's an experience of its own. Narita was the star of this match and my goodness he is really starting to look like his dad, Shibata. That bridging suplex he's doing is also a thing of absolute beauty.

    The main event was Chris Dickinson vs Minoru Suzuki, which was essentially the Dirty Daddy doing all of his puro nerd shit against Suzuki's old man shtick. Pretty sure he even went for an exploder suplex at one point which Suzuki just brushed off. Suffice to say, I thought it was great. But much of the crowd was either burnt out by the end of the night or just not into it. Danielson vs Suzuki being so fresh on everyone's minds couldn't have helped.

    Other quick thoughts... Holy crap Fred Rosser is huge! He's also a great babyface hot tag. Ariya Daivari vs Alex Zayne was incredibly average and unexciting. Team Filthy are just as hateable dirtbags as ever. I'll never forgive this city for booing the perfect varsity jock, Karl Fredericks. Royce Isaacs didn't break anything with his ass, disappointed tbh.
