I could have sworn I saw Jack Swagger on a highlight clip for AEW Wrestling.

Yup, he's there as the "MMA undefeated" Jack Hager. A part of Chris Jericho's Inner Circle.

Interesting. I must watch more AEW.

The wrestling has been really good. It compares with NXT.

I see. I had been watching clips of AEW on YouTube, it seems they have Dean Ambrose as well I think they call him Moxley in AEW which is cool.

AEW is the opposite of Smackdown. Lots of fun wrestling with good story telling.

Moxley (aka Dean Ambrose) just won the title from Chris Jericho. Check it out on Wednesdays 8:00 pm Eastern on TNT. They should pay me for a plug like that.

From what I have seen in terms of Clips, it almost feels like WCW for some reason. Not a bad thing. I think they even have Jim Ross at the announce table which is another major Plus.

Yep, Jim Ross is there and Tony Schiavone is too. There are some old timers who are semi-active or managers like Diamond Dallas Page, Dustin Rhoads, Arn Anderson, and Jake Roberts. The core of stories are built around the Elite (Cody Rhodes, The Young Bucks, Hangman Page, Kenny Omega) with the biggest "villain" group being the inner circle headed by Jericho. There a ton of young guys with promising futures. There are a lot of high flyers too. Check out Pentagon and Rey Phoenix for some phenomenal flippy-dippy stuff.

WWE currently has a pretty strong roster, Lesnar, Styles, Orton, Edge, Bray Wyatt, Roman, Nakamura, Goldberg, Ziggler & Roode, McIntyre

women's wrestling is ruining WWE, if they removed the women's division the product wouldn't be so bad.

@penguinreturns: That makes zero sense. The women’s division has some of the best wrestlers period. You could say the same thing about the men’s roster and it almost hold true since both main rosters have been absolute garbage for the better part of the year because Vince doesn’t care about the fans. He doesn’t know how to book the actual good ones and when they do get some slightly good booking, he ruins it just as fast if you’re name isn’t Charlotte or Roman Reigns.

@straight-fire:

I wish all the girls in WWE were part timers.

@god_spawn:

It makes perfect sense. I don't care if they can wrestle or not it's not my issue. that said they're not great at it, every time I see them attempt to do an Irish whip I just laugh.

but that's not why I think it ruins the show, it ruins the show because it takes up way too much time and too much of WWE's energy is focused on it. also they take spots on TV and PPV's away from real wrestlers.

it's bullsh*t and everyone knows it. but a lot of wrestling fans are such cucks and simps these days that they will watch something they claim to love be destroyed rather than risk being perceived as a "sexist" or whatever.

or they're just addicted to simping and can't control themselves.

pro wrestling is about tough guys fighting each other, not little girls trying to act like men and making fools of themselves in the process.

WWE has been making controversial booking decisions since at least the 80s, that's not new. women "wrestlers" taking up 50% of the show and boring every honest person to tears, that is new.

I always thought Jeff Jarrett was hilarious with that Guitar. I miss when he would hit people with those Guitars and they would bust into Confetti.

Chris Jericho is easily one of the Greatest Pro Wrestlers Ever. It's the fact that he has been relevant and great for so long that is Special.

Rob Gronkowski aka Gronk's entrance to Friday Night Smackdown was Hilarious. From the Horrible Generic Music when he came out to the Ridiculous Dance at the Stage Entrance.

WWE should put other wrestlers at ringside to give reactions. Though I don't think they have the talent showing up to do that and with the Miz stupidly going to work sick I imagine there will be less. Like Roman pulled out of Wrestlemania. Odd AEW doesn't seem to have that problem.

Is it location of the arena, where the wrestler live, the pay or are they just hungrier for the biz?

Hulk Hogans new look. I'm digging it. Looks like shaved head and white beard. He sorely needed to update and let go of the past. He can't wrestle anymore but a position on something like Tough Enough could like he had works. I don't like blowing AEW's horn but bring back old wrestlers as managers because many of thse new guys have no personality is a good idea. I'm liking what Jake the Snake is putting out. I hope his wrestler is up for it.

I was hoping Hulk Hogan still had the Side Bangs with the New Beard. Then he would look like George Carlin with Muscles.

I am glad they got the WWE Universal Championship off of Goldberg. Wow, that was a short match. Bill laid a few Spears on Braun Strowman and Strowman got Goldberg into the Powerslam to win the WWE Universal Championship.

I do not mine a Braun Strowman WWE Championship Run at all...

The Undertaker vs AJ Styles in the Boneyard Match was Very Entertaining. It reminded me of a Direct To Video Horror Film mixed with a Real Life Showdown in the Backyard between your Uncle and Cousin where your Cousin think he can take the Uncle because the Uncle is Older now. All of the Dialogue was Fantastic. Great Ending, nice to see American Badass Undertaker back and Kicking Ass again.

Sorry for Goldberg; it's played as if someone can get by his spear than they could win; this was similar to what they had Brock do; for peats sake, look at how Braun lost his US title.

Wrestlemania night 1 was horseshit from what I’ve heard aside from the boneyard match. Zero reason for them to take the belt off Rhea this soon and bury Baszler last night. Vince really is deconstructing everything and I say for the first time in a long time, I’m glad I haven’t watched WWE in over a month now.

I got the concept they were going for (which was interesting) but they went a too far with it. Plus it was too long and had no actual wrestling in it which were negatives in my book.
