I like Kenny, but he’s full of himself if he truly thinks the AEW’s roster is more talented than NXTs.

 

I mean, if you’re into spot monkey wrestling than I guess he’s right. But pure wrestling wise, NXT probably has the best talent of any company including within the main roster.

The wars are heating up this week.

 

Raw seemed a little more edgy last night, and the pyro effects made it more like how it used to be kind of liked that, but the show besides Lesnar was kind of meh imo. Obviously Wednesday will be nice to see AEW debut on tv hopefully it goes well, and definitely curious to how they run it what boundaries they will have if any... But then Friday the new Smackdown on Fox is going to be interesting, with The Rock and Stone Cold being there as well as Sting and others, Stone Cold has been quoted recently in returning for 1 more match which was a shocker definitely interested in that, but now being on Fox and probably being 14+ now instead of PG will be interesting to see what happens.

Admittedly, I don’t watch enough New Japan, I only watch the marquee events (Wrestling Kingdom, The New Beginning, Dominion, some of G1), but I find their roster very limited in all-around talents.They put on good matches, but most of their wrestlers aren’t very technical sounded, but rather hard hitting brawlers and aerialists. I would say  Ospreay, Sabre Jr., Sanada, Tanahashi, and Ibushi are the only wrestlers who can change up their style of the match, based on who they are facing. 
 

Unpopular opinion, but I find Okada fairly boring. He’s basically the Randy Orton of New Japan.......while an excellent wrestler his moveset is very underwhelming with missile drop kicks, chops and spam finishers.

AEW Dynamite on now on TSN2!

Watching now.  Kinda pissed though.  Set PVR to record yesterday but a soccer game was listed.  TSN / Telus changed it at sometime to AEW so it didn't record.  Managed to hit watch from beginning but now I can't FF through the commercials.  Like what I see so far.

Cody said numerous times they weren’t just going to hire every WWE castaway. Yet,  they hired Moxley, Spears, and Hager ..... lol.

 

AEW put on a good show tonight, but NXT essentially put on a NXT Takeover on free TV, having all the top talents in matches and 2 title matches. I would give NXT round 1.

Elias is fighting Kevin Owens on the out side of the ring. Guitar gets smashed on Owens. Elias puts Owens on the announce table Shane jumps off the 5th rung of the ladder onto Owens on the announce table. Elias helps Shane up and drags him to the ladder. Shane struggles to climb the ladder. Shane gets half way up and boom Cult of personality hits. Punk runs into the ring and hits Elias with a GTS. Punk then pulls Shane off the ladder and grabs a mic. He looks Shane right in the eyes and says who's the best in the world now?  Punk hits him with a running Knee. Shane sells flying back. Owens catches him with a pump up power bomb and climbs the ladder. Owens climbs the ladder and grabs the briefcase. Owens goes to shake Punks hand. Punk shakes his hand but then hits him with the GTS. Punk leaves the ring to a huge pop.

I thought AEW dynamite was good, definitely enjoyed the show and felt it was better then Raw, as for NXT I don't watch it so can't compare, but TV ratings for AEW definitely destroyed NXT, and rumor is on the replay of AEW dynamite they got another 450,000 roughly.

 

As for Smackdown this was a let down imo, WWE was selling the show to showcase guys like Stone Cold, The Undertaker heck even Sting was being sold by them, yet none were used in the show only Austin in a pre recorded video to start it off. The Undertaker was there but left, he came out and said why he left, because WWE told him they didn't need him, it seems once they had The Rock confirmed they didn't care to showcase anyone else and felt The Rock was good enough. Turns out after Smackdown went off air fans were pissed, because they wanted to see Undertaker and Austin, and so the AEW chants started, and imo this is really going to start to piss off Vince McMahon, the last thing he wants on his show is fans chanting AEW.

 

With that said, I bring up Hell In A Cell, the show wasn't that bad, the Sasha and Becky match was probably the best, but it was the final match of the night that made the show go to crap. The only good thing was the red lights the rest was bad, watching Rollins do The Stomp, and another Stomp and another Stomp, I think he ended up doing 11 of them during the match it was just overkill and throw in a pedigree as well and it didn't even really faze The Fiend barley. I didn't like it at all and turns out the fans didn't as well, because you could hear them chanting AEW, and even chanting refund. This means the last 2 shows WWE has done, Smackdown and Hell in a Cell have both caused the audience/fans to chant AEW, Vince is going to loose his mind if this continues :lol:
