@WRKDWrestling Please, no more of the Mustafa Ali experiment. How many chances has he had to get himself over, and he just… hasn’t? I’m sure he’s a nice guy and he’s not bad in the ring, but keep the microphone away from him. Total charisma vacuum.
Another week, another talent not signed to AEW working Dynamite. When you have 3 hours of meaningful TV time weekly, you should prioritize keeping your locker room happy. When’s the last time Brian Pillman Jr. was on? All Tony Khan cares about are Meltzer stars and it shows. twitter.com/TonyKhan/statu…
@TonyKhan @KennyOmegamanX @RealJeffCobb @AEW @AEWonTV @TBSNetwork @njpwglobal Oh, look, another guy not signed to AEW making it to TV before some of your own talent. Tell me, how can you find room for Vikingo, Timothy Thatcher, Jeff Cobb, Aussie Open, etc. but not for Brian Cage, Lance Archer, Miro, Andrade, Brian Pillman Jr., etc.?
Kudos to LA Knight for carrying the Bray Wyatt feud, only to lose to him in one of the goofiest matches I’ve ever seen to beating a soon-to-be Hall of Famer two months later. That’s how it’s done. That’s not even mentioning coming back from being saddled with Max Dupri.
Vince McMahon must be back running WWE, because there was a pre-tape where someone said wrestler and they had to reshoot it. Give me a break. How many times was wrestler or wrestling said in the main event segment of Raw? You ignore evidence that doesn’t fit your narrative.
The dirt sheets actually want Vince McMahon back running WWE. They keep running those “Is Vince back?” stories, despite evidence to the contrary. They ignore the evidence that doesn’t fit their narrative. They need an enemy to blame, because they clearly won’t criticize Triple H.
I don’t think Tony Khan knows how an open challenge works. You can’t have an open challenge and announce the opponent ahead of time. That kind of defeats the purpose. That’s literally just a normal singles match. #AEW #AEWDynamite #AEWonTBS
AEW is real pro wrestling, I tell you. That’s why they have QT Marshall doing TMZ parodies, the Mimosa Mayhem match, the Dinner Debonaire, etc. #AEW #AEWDynamite #AEWonTBS
“Homegrown star Skye Blue” Who cares if their wrestlers worked in WWE before or started in AEW? Such a lazy story idea. The whole Outcasts thing is awful. #AEW #AEWDynamite #AEWonTBS
Can’t or won’t make room for Andrade, Brian Cage, or Miro, but can shoehorn unsigned guys like Vikingo into the show and give them main event matches. Booker of the Year, I tell you. Booking for an audience of one. That one is Meltzer. #AEW #AEWDynamite #AEWonTBS
Honest question. Is Bryan Danielson still with the Blackpool Combat Club? I couldn’t tell you the last time he appeared on TV with them, but I don’t remember him leaving either. #AEW #AEWDynamite #AEWonTBS
Tony Khan can rehire Stu Grayson and immediately make room for him on weekly TV, but can’t get Brian Cage/Miro/Lance Archer on TV. Make it make sense. #AEW #AEWDynamite #AEWonTBS
I’m sure next week’s Adam Cole vs. Daniel Garcia match will be dubbed a “dream match” too. Seems like we get one every other week. #AEW #AEWDynamite #AEWonTBS
Using “sports entertainer” as a way to get heat in AEW makes no sense anymore. WWE can say “wrestler” and “wrestling” again. Time to catch up. #AEW #AEWDynamite #AEWonTBS
No matter how many times AEW tries to get me to care about Daniel Garcia and Wheeler Yuta, I just can’t. Same with WWE and Mustafa Ali. Look up the word “bland” in the dictionary and you’ll see a picture of any one of the three. #AEW #AEWDynamite #AEWonTBS
Is Adam Cole ever going to wrestle? I swear, it’s been months since he returned and nothing. Just talk, talk, and more talk. #AEW #AEWDynamite #AEWonTBS
@NewsXero You tell us. You’re the one who supposedly has sources.
Remember, this isn’t even the first time we’ve had the “Goldberg to AEW” rumors start up. If he does show up tomorrow, this may be one of my best-aged takes. twitter.com/VicNeumann1/st…
@enuffznuff1976 I get that. If you’re going to do a worked shoot promo, now would be the time. Unfortunately, it seems like we get one every other week now to the point where it feels cheapened.
With rumors of Goldberg joining AEW, how long until we get “Thank you for bringing a legend to AEW, Tony” tweets from the same people who have been bashing him and calling him “Oldberg” for the last 7 years? I bet they’re scrambling to delete their old tweets now, just in case.
@wrestlehugs Nothing against Cody and Roman. It's just played out at this point. We just had a worked shoot promo between the Four Pillars on Dynamite last week. Different promotion, I know, but the point stands.
I may be in the minority here, but I'm tired of worked shoot promos. They're overdone at this point. They no longer feel special. #WWERaw
@TheABPromotions Maybe not my favorite, but The Revival vs. American Alpha from NXT Takeover: Dallas immediately came to mind.
@WrestlingNewsCo Remember when the IWC ran Scotty 2 Hotty off Twitter for not wanting to work intergender matches? Can’t say I’ve ever been a fan. Most of the time, it’s just goofy. Look at the Tozawa-Ripley match or the Orton-Bliss match and tell me we need more intergender wrestling.
For anyone who says “be patient” about any of Triple H’s returns, how patient do you want us to be? How long before we can call a spade a spade? Most of them just don’t have anything interesting to offer on the main roster. They’re forgettable at best and Bray Wyatt at worst.
@ringsidenews_ Ruby Soho’s nose says no.
@ringsidenews_ I don’t think he should log off Twitter. I think he should get a social media manager to run his account for him. The constant, repetitive self-congratulatory “Justified ‘This is awesome’ chants” and calling all of your critics bots is enough to turn people off.
@WrestlePurists So, he may or may not sign with WWE and he may or may not sign with AEW. Anyone with a functioning brain could’ve told you that. Yet, WON wants to be taken seriously and act like they’re real journalists. Give me a break.
Remember when Zelina Vega got released from WWE and the fanboys white knighted for her? Remember how she would be an invaluable asset to any wrestling promotion? Remember how that talk all disappeared when she chose to re-sign with WWE? Now, nobody talks about her. #SmackDown
