AEW MISC

  • Where is HoB (other than Julia)

  • Where are the trios titles? 

  • Why does AEW sign someone and have them show up on Dynamite and then they go to Rampage or less and someone else gets signed and shows up on Dynamite? It’s not great for new signees and I think AEW needs to work on that.

Owen is on a much-deserved vacation so Matthew takes over this podcast with the help of our good friend, good brother, and Oh No Wrestling contributor Jay Jansson! We cover A LOT in this episode as we discuss what happened on all weekly WWE and AEW programming, while also discussing all the news, rumors, and speculations on "brand splits", drafts, and more! Check out the show notes below for more details, or just press play and DRINK IT IN MAAAAAAN!

WWE RAW

  • Overall show was not great. April Slump?

  • Bloodline story dried out?

  • Cody Promo/Duster Brock

  • Rollins v Miz:

    • Actually a good match for a RAW. 

    • A rare great Miz Tv match

    • Havent we seen a lot of them in the not to distant past though?

    • I feel bad for Seth. What do they do with him? 

  • Bronson Reed nice guy gimmick

    • What is this shit?

    • Match with him and Lashley could be good. 

WWE SMACKDOWN

  • Epic Braun sequence

  • Thoughts on a possible Imperium v New Day program in the future?

  • The Nakamura video was cool. Can't say I'm invested in Cross and Scarlett yet reminds me of a Vegas magician. 

  • Sonya DeVille and Chelsea Green are like a Great Value version of the IIconics. 

  • Rhea vs Zelina in Puerto Rico

  • Gunther vs woods good match, Gunther is a star!

  • Riddle vs Solo

WWE MISC

  • Thoughts on upcoming draft? 

    • Who can benefit from it?

    • What happens with “unified” title holders?

    • How is it going to "change the game" 

    •  WWE/Twitch deal

Good or bad for talent

  • Injuries

McIntyre, what's going on?

  • NXT: Are you watching again?

AEW DYNAMITE

  • 4 Pillars Tournament
  • 3 Pillars promo to open the show. They seemed exposed without MJF to help them along.
  • Who do you want to see win the 4 Pillars tournament and face MJF at Doube of Nothing
  • Would rather see a 4 pillars 4 way for the title. 
  • Wardlow v Hobbs

  • Turtleneck Christian is the best incarnation of Christian. 

    •  Loved seeing Glock Anderson

     

  • Love that Callis brought out Takeshita to help and ally with The Elite.

    • Are we looking at BCC v Elite w/ Takeshita for Double or Nothing? 

    • Possibly Blood and Guts match or Anarchy in the Arena? 

    • I really really like this incarnation of the BCC with Danielson as the mouthpiece. Elevates Yuta too. 

    • Do you think Kota Ibushi factors into this at all? Possible Blood and Guts match? 

  • Jay White vs Kommander

    • Luchador vs psychological wrestling

    • Interesting clash of styles

    • Not really into the Bullet Club Gold stuff

  • Pairing of Briscoe with Jay Lethals faction, what is the endgame. 

  • Jeff Hardy saying “be there or be triangular”?

  • Angelo Parker's "loaded comb" a more devastating weapon than Paul Walter Hauser's golden Globe?

AEW RAMPAGE

  • Not until Saturday night this week. Preview card? 

    • El Hio Del Vikingo vs. Dralistico for the AAA Mega Championship

    • -We’ll hear from undefeated TBS Champion Jade Cargill

    • -Jon Moxley vs. Christopher Daniels

    • -FTR, Jay Lethal & Jeff Jarrett vs. Varsity Athletes & Slim J

    • -Kiera Hogan vs. Julia Hart

    • -We’ll hear from The Hardy Boyz, HOOK, and Isiah Kassidy

AEW MISC

  • Thoughts on the very likely return of CM Punk and a Sunday show? Possible soft brand split.

  • FTR/PUNK show vs The Elite show. Possibly set up a PPV against brands? 

  • Thoughts on Jeff Hardy return 

OTHER MISC WRESTLING

  • Dax ending FTR Podcast due to toxic response

  • Will Osprey “I’m not sure how long this ride will be” video

  • I hate Goldberg but we should probably talk about the recent interview where he said he was promised a proper retirement match and is considering a four-city retirement tour. 

  • Mercedes Monet IWGP title defense Sunday vs Mayu Iwatani

    • Has Mercedes made an impact in Japan?

  • Ask Jay about his experience with Fite pass

ONW - EP 191

AEW Dynamite
Jay White Debut
All in at Wembley / Is it a PPV? TV Special?
    -return of punk?
    -dream card
All out a week after

Nick Wayne / Defy / Feud with Swerve

Kota Ibushi to AEW?

What to expect from the WWE Draft?


Who should win KOTR?
    -proper tourney ppv?
Who should win the MITB Briefcase?

Backlash is shaping up:
Cody v Brock
Sami/Ko/ Riddle V Usos / Solo
Backy V Trish
Badbunny / Rey V Dom / Priest
Belair V Io

 

AEW

How often are we having Battle of the Belts now? I feel like it is more often than it should be. Seems like it is every couple of months and it doesnt seem special.
Also, if AEW is going to do a 2 hour Rampage they should block off the TV time as a 2 hour long program. Not 1 hour of Rampage and 1 hour of BOTB.
Do you think Taya Valkyrie is going to be the one to finally beat Jade? Possibly by using the same finisher? Anything to get Jade away from that TBS Title picture. 
Good to see Julia Hart in the ring. Her entrance is cool when she is solo. 
Why is Anna Jay talking about her ass?
Matt Hardy on Jeff returning. Says he “hopes” he will return in 6-8 weeks. I personally dont care. Go away and stay away.
Dax floating out CM Punk & FTR v The Elite at Wembly.

WWE
Logan Paul signs multi-year deal. Expires after Mania 41.
During an interview with ESPN, Logan said that he likes what creative pithed him and that he wouldn’t have stayed with WWE if he didnt think he could win a title. What title does he win? US Title from Theory?
Photoshopped picture was funny.
Liv and Raquel win titles from Becky and Trish. Do we care?
Also, when did the tag titles be able to be passed off to other wrestlers who didnt actually win? Lita to Trish…seems weird.
Becky didnt have good energy and seemed off. 
Cody v Brock
Cody had another good promo.
Triple H said at the post Mania press conference that the story never ends in WWE. However, I think that they should end stories. Since Mania it seems that they are still running with a bunch of the same stories and they all seem to have lost a bit of their luster. I’m not sure how you can build them back uo to pre Mania levels of hype.
Dom and Rey needs to be done. That promo from Dom last night was horrible. He was doing the exact same promo as the ones leading to Mania, and he stumbled over his words.
