    AEW puts out like 4+ shirts a week so if they used AI to make a few im not going to condemn them. I’d rather they didn’t though

    Strong disagree

    You're about to get a $52mil check for a new TV show, hire and pay real artists ffs

    Tony Khan is a literal billionaire, he can pay people to design hideous wrestling shirts by hand

    It's a sacred art damnit

    Like, I'm a huge AEW fan and I love wrestling shirts, but I've never bought a single AEW shirt because they don't look good and they are prowrestling tees which aren't very good quality

  • DJ EebsDJ Eebs Moderator, Administrator admin
    absolutely no reason AEW can't hire designers and even if they somehow couldn't, AI art isn't the fucking answer

    I was not expecting MJF and Sammy to be an absolute delight together, but here we are.

    I was expecting Kyle, but boy, doesn't that tell you how much WWE didn't care about Strong that nobody knew he wasn't under contract.

    I really want Statlander to beat Jade but if she's still hurt, Taya doing it would be fantastic. Just tired of the undefeated thing at this point.

    Fuck AI art but is there any indication that that or any of their shirts are actually AI generated, or is that one random comment literally the only evidence?

    I used to think Jade was improving but at some point she plateau'd really hard, this match is her being a half step behind Taya the whole way, just blowing basic timings.

    Jade’s hit the point where not being able to lose is holding her back and making her less interesting than she could be. Have her drop the title and then go away for a while. Let her do the Japan tour she’s expressed interest in. It’ll make her a more complete performer.

    Don’t know how that didn’t end in a DQ and them doing the rematch at the PPV.

  • MagellMagell Detroit Machine Guns Fort MyersRegistered User regular
    She needs what Saraya needs which is to be free of the belt and have matches on Dark all the time to get in more reps. Nobody can learn wrestling that fast with so few matches.

    If you look at the design there are a number of fairly telltale signs (Uno's fingers on the design are all fucked up, his gloves/wrist wraps bleed into his hands, and his mask connects to his vest like Batman's cowl in a way that it........ shouldn't being the most egregious). The exact kind of "mouths and hands" details AI famously struggles with, especially when you factor in masks.

    It's possible it was human-made, maybe, but if it was, it was a human with poor understanding of fabrics and anatomy who is doing an especially AI-esque job.

    The last update on him a month ago was he was still contracted and was denied his release request, just not being used https://cultaholic.com/posts/report-update-on-roderick-strong-s-wwe-status

    The match just sort of ended with a wet fart. If you want it to end with a screw job, fine, but make it actually look like something Taya couldn't escape. That just looked terrible.

    People have posted the art that some of the shirts seem to draw from

    Not really evidence other than everyone has to become some level of detective for this shit now.
    To begin with when did Uno become like Miro style big? Why is one pec way larger than the other?
    His mask is like directly connected to his jacket, has like no eyes, the teeth can’t really figure out which set are on top. Dude’s hairline looks like it goes down directly to his eyebrows.

    The jacket looks like it has a blurry set of numbers at the top followed beneath by like, a computer motherboard? I don’t know what that is supposed to be.

    That said he should totally make a cleaned up version of this mask.

  • Lindsay LohanLindsay Lohan Registered User regular
    Uno's sort of looks inspired by Pirahna from the old arcade Mat Mania/Exciting Hour game just with horns instead of a mohawk.

    See, and this is where AI art fails to pass the Turing test because you can give it this feedback like you would a freelancer and it'll just keep giving you back images of Tetsuo The Iron Man looking abominations of flesh and gear with warped physiology that looks like it would be in constant pain. It doesn't understand perspective it can draw lines real good. It doesn't know anatomy it just recognizes the general pattern of muscles and inserts them in a way that looks like they might tie together right without context for how they allow a body to move. So you get things like vagina armpits and melted hotdog fingers.

    The back half of this post sounds judt like my spec script for the sequel to Everything Everywhere All At Once.

    AEW should let Lee Moriarty design their merch. He does his own stuff and I have two of his shirts not just because I'm a big fan of his wrestling, but his shirts look cool as fuck. He already works for you so just give him some extra cash to design shirts as well.

    I have one, that being the Adam Page vs. Ken Masters shirt, since I like both and I dug the art.

    This honestly sounds fun AF, and like something I'd have expected to see on their programming a couple of years ago.

    Better than the Uno shirt.

    I have a Best Friends shirt (which I got at the same time as a Bullet Club shirt)

    Disappointed in the quality though, compared to the WWE shirts I bought in like 2016 they're not holding up well in the wash at all

    The Pro Wrestling Tees are pretty mediocre quality shirts. They're lighter than the WWE shirts, but the print on them has a short shelf life. I tend to stick to wrestlers who use a different company to print their shirts. I miss the Tiger Driver guys, love my Alex Shelley shirt I got through them.

    Speaking of merch - I think it's absolutely amazing that A.) MJF Pickles are really a thing and B.) You have the handy option of financing them.

    $70 for 4 jars of pickles, jfc

    Almost as disappointing as the MJF crypto he started last year.
