Nuts Redeemed: AEW in Fall 2021

So, the NHL on TNT is the gift that keeps on giving. Because they have to keep the stupid Wednesday night hockey thing going they're airing NHL games at 10 pm through the end of year. Because those games have to be live they are bumping Dynamite to 10 pm to Midnight (or whenever the game ends, so it could be much later) for the west coast and 11-1 am for Mountain.

So, basically AEW's ratings from Texas to the coast of California are going to be trash until the move in January.

WWE cucks online are going to have a field day the rest of this year.
"Turner Sports has reached a seven-year deal with the NHL for the package that's worth $225 million per season, sources confirmed."

"At the time, sources have revealed that AEW’s contract deal extension was for 4 years and worth $175 million, or just under $45 million per year. That deal would also include an option for TNT to re-sign AEW in 2024 at a significantly increased price."

You can argue ratings/demographics/etc. but TNT has invested a lot of money into the NHL and their season isn't 12 months long, so I don't know why TNT keeping NHL games at 10 PM EST is shocking to anybody unless you live under a bubble. Tuesdays/Wednesdays/Saturdays tend to be the pre-dominant NHL scheduling.

I'm just saying that it sucks for AEW. I wish they could've went to TBS after the MLB playoffs.

The crossrhodes through the table made me groan. As did the multiple replays showing Cody taking the entire bump.

Archer earlier in the show landing on his head doing a moonsault was fucking disgusting. I really wasn't a fan of him being allowed to continue the match even if it was just to do the rollup finish. It was not worth it.
