AEW Year 2, Thread One

Count me in in Team Kid Romeo. I love that Cruiserweight Tag tourney and think the finals (Skipper/Romeo vs. Rey/Kidman) is one of the best tag matches in WCW history.

Starks just...meh? There's too much "meh" on the roster for a company that calls itself All Elite Wrestling. It reminds me of when half the indie companies before the ROH boom had "extreme" or "hardcore" in their name but ran a very WWF 1992-style show.

Yeah. AEW's undercard seems a bit too grab baggy for my liking so far. WWE's been blasted for signing people just for the sake of other promotions not having them but I think AEW has been guilty of that too.

PWI's lists are all based on kayfabe so I guess "disrepected tag team leaving one company and moving to another and becoming champions" is a strong enough to beat out things like the Street Profits and New Day just randomly having the tag belts for 240+ days over the past year. There's not many other mainstream options, which usually headline these lists.

CageMatch says FTR has had 14 matches in AEW this year, and they had 12 matches in WWE this year (because house shows).

I've met Louie a few times. Once at All In. The one boss he's talking about is DDP (not sure if he wants that out there or not, but I figure no one here will go run to twitter with that). He did DDP yoga and actually stayed in DDP's house for awhile. Having met him I can certainly say he's a character. He was nice enough to me, but I could see why some might not favor being around him.

I'm trying to go through the tread, but somewhere along the lines he clarified that he was working for a studio that did work for AEW, and that it wasn't AEW directly. From what a lot of people are saying, it seems like his boss at the studio had a problem with him, and Cody might not have even known who the guy was since he didn't work for AEW. I'm trying to piece things together from the thread.

A friend of mine did DDP Yoga a few years back. She had interactions with DDP on the regular. She said that they started fine when she was starting out on the plan, but once she got further along he started telling her that she needed to stick to a diet that he came up with. When she told him that she had a particular diet she had to keep due to an illness he flipped out on her and started to become verbally abusive and condescending. She stopped shortly after because she couldn't deal with him.

Here is a story on it from years ago. You can kinda tell from the story that Louie was a punching bag going back to 2012:

Wrestlinginc has contacted AEW about this story and are awaiting a response. They have broken several stories lately so they are a credible site

I doubt a lot of things in this story and will leave it at that for now. Except that DDP is a piece of shit. But the rest is a bunch of "supposedly" and "apparently" and "someone told me".
