    Now that Punk is hurt that all may be on hold.
    That makes sense and MJF was a logical choice to be the next champ, i guess they are going to "hold him", so when he comes back he'll get a huge reaction...

    Excalibur has mentioned MJF a couple times by name over the past couple of weeks, AND the cameras even zoomed on a guy in the crowd cosplaying as MJF on Dynamite this week. So I feel like they keep giving us little tidbits to remind us he's out there. But really though it only makes sense for MJF to come back when CM Punk is back.

    Personally I’m not a fan of MJF at all. So if he becomes Champion quickly when he comes back I will just change the channel when he’s on, lol. In ring skills suck IMO, lol on mic he’s great. But even then I have grown tired of his gimmick. Sorry not sorry, just not a fan.

    You know, this is literally the first time i've ever read someone saying they were actively not a fan of MJF. I'm fully on board with him but t's actually kind of refreshing to see your take.

    As much as I can see your points about MJF, the guy is only 25. His in-ring ability is only going to get better, and I feel that within the next five years he could be the biggest face in AEW.

    Flair teaming with Andrade vs Jeff Jarrett and Jay Lethal for his final match.

    Pass.

    Lol, I know I’m one of the few that doesn’t like MJF. I guess I have always felt his character arc reeks of “Meta” bullshit that drives me nuts about wrestling right now. Like seriously... it’s wrestling, it’s not rocket science. You aren’t smarter and than everyone else. Also it drives me nuts he keeps doing long ass promos every week, wrestles once every 2 months, and makes every opponent he has do the same “you have to beat 5 other guys to get to me” gimmick. Time to evolve MJF. You are boring to me now, lol.

    I can agree with everything you said. I guess what I’m saying is if he does become the face of AEW I won’t like it, lol. I really find him to be unappealing and bore the shit out of me, lol.

    MJF is ok in the ring, but competent enough, his promos are it's forte, i can understand if you don't dig him, but to me the guy has tons of potential to become one of the greats.

    I hope I’m proven wrong too. I hope he maxes that potential.

    Fun episode of Dynamite. Highlight for me was the House of Black/Sting/Miro angle. So many possibilities for that story and really none which are terrible. Main event was a bit much, but Jericho was involved, so to be expected I guess.

    Also: FTR are the most over act in all of wrestling. That promo from Dax was incredible.

    I was actually pretty disappointed in the Barbed Wire match. I appreciated that they used real barbed wire, but the match itself felt really rushed and it genuinely didn't make any sense as to why JAS was in a shark cage and BCC wasn't.

    Things really changed when it went from paying money to cover up an affair (which is meh) to paying a former female wrestler to cover up forced sexual acts.

    Maybe WWE will actually become watchable now, but I doubt it.

    Glad Trips is back in charge of talent relations. Hopefully the no indie wrestler edict will end and we can also stop changing everyone's fucking name

    So it’s been confirmed that Vince did use company funds to pay off these women he abused/harassed.

    What a stupid asshole.

    Speaking of stupid assholes, instead of promoting Paul Heyman to head of Creative, Steph upward failed her husband Paul TWICE now instead (he was also named head of Talent recently too).

    LOL

    This is the definitive “This isn’t it” in terms of getting me to ever watch again…

    They’ll hire Choad Hogg back soon too I bet.

    It was pretty dumb to use the company funds, good thing is that now it's the real time for a change in that company.

    The Brock/Roman match had a super predictable winner but that was one of the most fun WWE matches of the last 15 years easy. So much fuck. Absolutely bananas.

    I think Last Man Standing matches are normally pretty blah but this one was pretty darn good. Especially for a Roman/Brock match.

    Yeah I expected absolutely nothing out of that match but it was a fucking blast. Brock lifting the ring off of the ground with that front loader was some of the wildest shit I've ever seen.

    SummerSlam, following suit of most PLE's in recent memory, was way more fun than it should have been. Key difference here is the positive potential coming out of it.

    Belair v. Lynch, and the post match return of Bayley with her lackeys, IO (!!!) and Kai, felt like a revelation. As much as I'd like to see Sasha come back, I think it would be best for business for MKV to take a few years away from WWE, go win the NJPW women's belt, show out in AEW for a few, then blow the roof off with a Royal Rumble return in 3-4 years.

    Logan Paul was again far better than he had any right to be, McAfee was passable - I am blaming it on the ring; really looked like the setup was a bit off. Like the ropes were a bit spongier than normal. Edge's return was , Rousey and Morgan was decent, and as mentioned by many here, the main event was a dope blowoff to the Reigns/Lesnar saga.

    The thing I didn't like about the tractor was it became clear quickly that Theory wasn't going to be able to cash in his MITB briefcase (yes I know they tried to sell us on commentary that he was trying to make it a triple threat (don't get me started on how that didn't make sense.)) because there was no way to pin someone in the ring. And I kinda wanted to watch Roman destroy Theory.

    Definitely felt like a fresh reset on Raw last night. Quality matches, stakes, and story continuity throughout the episode. Solid B+/A- in my book.

    It really annoys me that the Universal Championship has velcro and the WWE Championship has the snaps. It's all I can look at when Roman is out there.

    Stoked about the return on Smackdown last night!

    Yeah I feel like with Trips in charge he's about to go on a big run. I honestly could see him dethroning Roman if they can't get The Rock for Mania
