And lots more excitement from WWE!

Meanwhile, AEW is building full speed ahead towards their next PPV, Dynasty, by revealing the backstage footage from All In London last year!

Oh. Er... alright, then. Well, they also did their own re-enactment of Shakespeare in the Park a Samoan champion fighting the son of Dusty Rhodes:

And other stuff happened recently, too! But my memory is full of gaps, and that's where you come in, by talking about other recent happenings under this post!

    It's probably a coincidence

    but it's very funny that the thumbnail image of Cody seems to be going out of its way not to show any of his neck tattoo.

    Since Cody finished the story, isn't wrestling over now? Or are they making a new trilogy? Maybe a prequel trilogy?

    considering how tied in with his branding it is and where Cody is now, it is actually objectively the best tattoo.

    I've always said him getting it should be a chapter in any potential death of aew book. Him going to wwe and being successful there just puts it in the death of wwe book too.

    According to insider gaming

    Fight Forever sounds like it was a huge blunder, both AEW and Yukes agree it was announced way to early, significant cuts were made to get it out the door and it was 1.5-2x over budget

    Apparently AEW wants to do another game and they own the game engine and code

    I still think they should have just finished the engine, got wrestlers it, and put it out with a simple ladder-style arcade mode up to a boss character (like a fighting game) and just released it at $30. That would have given them some time to take feedback on stuff like the length of matches and put more time into a more fleshed-out story/updated characters for the next game. That would have been much better received than a $60 game that doesn't meet anyone's expectations and then trying to sell overpriced DLC for it.

    The active userbase on Steam, even with the DLC designed to keep people at least popping in routinely, plummeted in such a way it'd have been more surprising if they didn't know it sucks and word got around about that. See also the Suicide Squad game for a non-wrestling example

    Maybe Yukes just sucks at making a wrestling game! Maybe it wasn't a WWE/2K issue on that front.

    Just finished Dynamite. It was sort of an odd one given they knew there would be extra eyes on them. The past few weeks have had amazing matches, they really should have saved an Ospreay match or pulled some bag of tricks out because it felt super disjointed. Maybe they were trying to push seeing familiar faces for folks tuning in for the Punk stuff with Jericho, Dustin, Edge, Joe etc - but it was easily the weakest episode for a few weeks (for my tastes at least).

    Oh geez from the observer today obviously reporting about Dynamite

    I didnt know Alex Windsor lost her (forgive the language if its wrong) previous partner to suicide in 2020 apparently her being in the UK with her family support system was the reason Will was determined to stay there and everyone he negotiated with specifically knew that so that's why he took the shot at Hunter.

    Man that is 10x worse then it just being the bitter apples I assume it was about from Trips

    Carrying Jade will be easy. Bianca takes the heat and Jade comes in and wrecks house with her power moves.

    After seeing their match at WM I'm not sure she can even manage that. Did she not spend time in NXT?

    She never set foot in an NXT ring on-camera (for a match, anyway).

    I imagine the reason they didn't have Jade go through NXT is that having a year or two of "developmental" isn't going to give her much more TV experience than she already has but it will sap her of that perceived star power. So we're going to have to watch her develop further on whatever brand she gets drafted to.

    Having Jade wrestle in NXT would have been dumb as fuck. She's already a tv ready star even if she still has rough patches in matches.

    The NXT roster isn't what it used to be there isn't a lot for her to learn thrre, she'll get more reps in the ring on house shows.

    I wonder if it's at all connected to WWE having most TV talent (of either sex) on enough gear to kill a small horse, on top of more higher risk spots.

    Shit's great for muscle growth and development, but it's easy as hell for gains to overwhelm connective tissue.

    Jade seems fine so far? I think pairing her with Bianca was a good call. Sisters of destruction over here. I dig it.
