Surprised there weren't any subtle jabs on commentary about this on Smackdown (or where there? I wasn't paying too close attention admittedly).

Corey made a remark when Drake won the 24/7 title that Drake May take his wife in a limo to a chain restaurant.

Punk is obviously not coming in. They basically false advertised him for this show for months and worked people.

No they didn't. They never said head on the show. He was booked in a different state for a different show that night, so it was easy to know he wasn't going to be there. They never once said he was showing up. All they said when he name was ever brought up was that the door is open. In fact they said he wasn't showing up. Is it their fault wrestling fans just don't listen or want to read into every little thing?

They slapped his star logo all over the advertising and constantly talked about how they were talking to him to the point Punk had to call them out himself and say he isn't looking to do wrestling. They didn't say he'd be there but they intentionally played up the speculation leading in with this stuff.

To be fair, the stars represent the flag of Chicago. 

Yes, you can say who else would do that when its not used as iconography for a well known person or entity in the field that is being promoted (i.e. the Chicago stars flag was not in any promotional material for the Star Wars Celebration held there back in April). 

And that is fair, but at least its an out they have when being called out on implying Punk’s potential involvement.

LOL of course. This is an underrated tactic in wrestling wars, the subtle swipes that each side takes against each other. Not the blatant remarks and actions.

The fuck? I think Jericho wanted to turn this into an angle and it'd ruin the fun if we already knew the belt was rescued, alive, and of normal size, some 8,000 miles away in a lifeboat.

Don't know why I didn't initially but I finally got around to watching the Buy In to All Out. I completely understand that not everyone can be pushed and there needs to be guys and gals in the enhancement role but not pushing Evans and Angelico seems like a huge misstep.

Eh.  While they can still go, that is saying Chris Daniels should be in the main event.  It is a shame he didn't get more recognition in his prime but time to usher in and build new talent, not some guys (in the case of Evans) who may have squandered their own chances when they were at their peak 10 years ago.

Daniels still has it. You can pretty much always count on him to deliver. Of all the signings they're made, he's still the most valuable in every possible way, I think. He can literally do anything they need him to do. He should get the last big run while he can. I've at least wanted Daniels and Jericho forever.

Evans was a bad signing. Way too late and hasn't done much in the way of evolution.

I like Daniels a lot and agree with his signing.  He can do it all in front of and behind the camera.  I just don't think he should be a main eventer for a promotion trying to gain a national presence at this point.  They got too many young guys they need build and get folks invested in to focus on a guy that smarks love but is still under the radar of a good portion of the audience they need to capture.

I'd have him ride the upper card, though. The guy you can slot in anywhere and have no problem. I overstated with "big run." I just mean two months tops before putting someone much younger and more viable over. Then just let him go back to tags. He can't give a Jericho rub, but he's good at making people.

Also, by process of elimination, I feel like he'd be able to have a good match with any of the Elite guys. Even Cody.

Not pushing Jack Evans as a singles star is fine. Jack has never shined much in singles matches and was always best when used in a stable or tag team (Generation Next, Vulture Squad, etc.). Angelico was one of the bright spots in Lucha Underground so I feel they should get a big more shine as a team. I guess it's way too early to tell. Or maybe I'm just a huge Angelico mark. I don't know.

BTW since they're brought up often in these threads, Jericho stated in his podcast this week that he's "still trying to figure out" the Dark Order.

It was either Cody or Pac and I'm guessing they're doing Pac-Page, but in order for AEW to succeed they're going to have to be better than WWE, and I don't expect Jericho-Cody to be anything special. Omega should have been the first champ.

I feel like Omega is eventually going to be their guy, they just didn't want to lead with him as champ because he's not as known to the more mainstream audiences that might watch TNT to see what the fuss is about. Jericho and Cody are more known guys, even if that eventual match will probably be meh at best.

It's pretty clear from the commentary that they're (for whatever reason) building Omega as an underdog who will finally somehow end up with a rematch against Jericho and beat him for the title. This kind of angle is fine, but Omega has been one of the best wrestlers of the last few years so to make him that guy is pretty dumb, imo.

It doesn't make sense yeah. They've kinda stripped away what made Omega so special in NJPW and he has lost a lot of his aura. Even before in his brawl with Moxley he was getting booed and I think it will only be getting worse as that feud continues. I don't know if Kenny really has the range to carry off a losing underdog gimmick. He's a cocky showstealer.

I would guess no barbwire, thumbtacks etc... on TNT.  Also, probably no men on women violence. 

I don't think they'll care too much about language, blood or T&A.  If you look at the new drama shows they've created (Animal Kingdom, Claws etc...) they're moving in a direction more like HBO or FX with edgy content.

So it looks like buys were down for All Out and Moxley's absence is what a lot of people are blaming it on.  If that doesn't tell them to push the shit out of him when he comes back I don't know what will.

Tag team title tournament bracket was announced:

Young Bucks
Private Party

Lucha Bros
Luchasaurus/Jungle Boy

SCU
Best Friends

Dark Order received a BYE and will face winner of SCU/BF.

I'll go with either Best Friends or Private Party for first champs. Young Bucks will chase afterwards.

My guess is Santana and Ortiz cost one or both of LU and Young Bucks their matches. Maybe not by interfering, maybe just distracting them as they want to keep the interfering down. Best Friends get their win back from Dark Order. I'd love to see Best Friends win it all as I'm a huge Chucky T guy, but Luchasaurus and Jungle Boy would be a great surprise to win it all.

They did a wrestling show using ROH last year on the same cruise and given that we’ve seen other sporting events take place live from a ship before, this shouldn’t been that difficult to pull off.

That ROH show wasn't live, though. It would take a little more to get it done live, but I think it would be a pretty great idea.

Omega did an interview where he said it was weird to call AEW vs NXT a war since many of them are his friends but stated if there were no boundaries and everyone was on the same show, the NXT talent would be in dark matches and opening matches of shows and that he would be the main event.

Well there's no questioning that if he signed with WWE earlier this year and was sent to nxt (for whatever reason) that he'd be main eventing there. Anyone saying otherwise is just being a contrarian. But to say the others would be in dark matches is a dick thing to say. If they want to be petty, let's compare the nxt women's division to the AEW women's division. Realistically there's only one or two girls WWE would even be interested in. Several of the AEW girls have been passed up by WWE numerous times.

the developmental jibe he made about NXT wrestlers is lame. At this point when it is on tv there isn't any truth to it at all and makes Kenny look petty.

Also I think we're going to start making the weekly threads a joint WWE/AEW thing so we don't have to deal with this crossposting worry once 10/2 hits.

And another 3 hour show...shoot me now.
