    Never would've imagined how much I'd want an asuka gaming channel until now. Subbed pretty quick along with the other 17k.

    In the Attitude Era we'd have about 12-15 people for PPVs/Raws in my buddy's parent's basement. Around 2002, it fell off to 3. Pretty much everyone else moved on to UFC when it got hot a few years later, or became parents and their kids lost interest fast when they tried to show them it.

    I just think many have moved on due to there being so much different media to consume out there. And I still hear the "the current wrestlers are too small!" excuse, too. The people I livewatch the Network with online are pretty much only interested in the archives of it. Again, all anecdotal.

    However, there is a part of me that says if Cody doesn't see them as competition, he shouldn't be smashing a throne with a sledgehammer... don't mention the other company, focus on yourself.

    Very happy to see my friend Wardlow get signed to AEW!

    Also, AEW is coming to pittsburgh, not sure if I'm gonna go, unless I can help in someway, I really don't enjoy going to wrestling shows and sitting on the bench.

    His promo package reminded me of Lucha Underground in a good way. Any matches you can point me towards of his to get acquainted?

    Skimming this thread while half paying attention to the Bears/Packers I game I read this as Warlord at first...

    I wonder if AEW is going to use "extra talent" like WWE does.

    I had to join a queue to buy a ticket and when the map popped up almost 2/3rds of the seats were gone. All floor and ringside seats were gone. They were billed as 90.00. Great deal.

    I nabbed a ticket in section 115 Row C. I got my ticket 7 minutes after sale time started. Wild...

    Yeah, no two ways about it, their queue ticket system sucks. I’m glad you’re going and I hope you have fun.

    You lucky bastards get Omega vs Moxley too!

    Nope, but the last weekly show before the PPV should be action packed.

    Social media/his podcast has completely ruined Chris Jericho for me. Holy shit he’s a legitimate douchebag.

    What did he do? His podcast is kind of douchey. Are you referring to how he lost his title belt like a dumbass?

    As a gimmick he lost me at the "Ayatolla of Rocknnnnnrolla!" (followed quickly by "IT! DOESN'T MATTER WHAT YOUR NAME IS!" *the People's eyebrow*) ... so, a while ago. I'm kinda surprised he's doing AEW.

    His ego is the absolute worst and he went from being legitimately cool to almost devolving into a 14 year old fedora wearing edgelord.

    He’s my second favorite wrestler of all time and he was really cool to me when I met him in 2007 but yeah, there’s some problematic aspects (he’s a right winger) on the personal side.

    Plus, he blocked me on Twitter years ago and I still don’t know why. I’ve never said a bad word about him. This also happened with Cesaro. It was around the time Hogan got outed as a racist and I said a lot about that but who fucking knows?

    I like Jericho and he was always a favorite but I feel his look and attitude regressed. When he got the haircut and reinvented himself and kept that charisma to him he was at the pinnacle of his post Y2J (1999-2005) career. Then we had awesome stuff like his light up clothing bullshit, the List and lots of cool stuff.

    The moment he started regrowing his hair length (which looks like absolute garbage these days) and changed his ring gear he began to change for the worst to me. His stint in NJPW changed his outlook and personality I feel and his overall attitude (casual listener to his podcast) changed the moment AEW began to form last year.

    I'm kinda whatever on him now.

    I really dig what he did in NJPW. He's a guy who constantly reinvents himself and evolves with the times. Can he be a bit douchey? Yeah. But, how much of that is him working people though? Chris Jericho is a gimmick.

    I just spent 5 mins watching Asuka put a chair together. And I loved every second of it.

    Anthem Sports bought a majority stake in AXS television, which now means IMPACT! will have a more solid television partner than even TNA had with Spike. I'm out of the loop on what they're doing but I guess this means they will be in business with New Japan (which obviously is a draw for AXS).

    Good for them but IMPACT! Fell off hard years ago. I can’t name a single wrestler that got these days aside from Scarlett Bordeaux from last year, who isn’t even with them now.

    Actually IMPACT! have been doing very well the last few years. They have a good roster and their Knockouts division is great. Their women’s division has Tessa Blanchard, Rosemary, Su Yung, Taya, Tenille Dashwood, Keira Hogan, Jordynne Grace. Check out the rest of the roster I’m sure you’ll know a lot of names on there. Like Cage, Johnny Impact, RVD, Callihan, Swann.

    Impact is pretty decent lately and they do have great guys like Killer Cross, Johnny Impact, Callahan and Tessa Blanchard (she's awesome...), sadly the company has no buzz around it and at this point i think its better for it to dissapear.

    Also: i'm sorry if you guys hate this, i find it fuckin' hilarious...
