    Kayden has been signed to NXT. (There's no way they allow her to look that good against Io otherwise)

    Speaking of the Podcast I wonder if they will make the mistake of what WWF Livewire and WWE Byte This did. If anyone doesn't remember the WWF tried these call in shows and get questions from viewers about the product. Instead to troll the company viewers would call in and ask live questions about other companies. This was a perfect deal in 1996 as Jim Ross is getting pissed at the WCW questions...

    If you guys haven't heard the news already is that Bushiroad, the current parent company of NJPW acquired Joshi Promotion Wonder Ring STARDOM. Mind you both companies will be separated and would not do joint crossovers since STARDOM content will not appear NJPW World and it will remain on their own streaming service.

    AEW thoughts:

    Darby looked like a star here, great performance. Only critique I have is, he shouldn't lose via submission. It doesn't fit his character and given that the commentary didn't clarify it much, I'm going with that being a ref stoppage instead, which fits far better.

    But otherwise, really good match. If AEW introduces a midcard title, Darby had better be the first champ.

    Riho is so over, I love it. I want to like Dr. Britt, but something's just, missing with her right now. Bea would probably be a better opponent for Riho right now.

    Mox vs. Pac should end in a draw/no contest. Either they just brawl, or Kenny interferes, or time limit, something. Neither guy needs to lose right now.

    As talented as the ladies are NJPW has too damn many titles already. They should send one of those titles to stardom and have it be the belt for stardoms men’s division.

    With the world going to streaming etc it can have staying power if Corgan keeps with it. The only deal is costs wise what Corgan is doing with it. Is he getting help for costs from airing the studio show and filming there ? When TNA was filming at Impact Zone they were given a great deal to keep costs low and were able to keep that audience coming in from the the theme park. Is the studio giving Corgan a good deal to film weeks of TV ?

    No one should be above tapping. The guy had his hands tied so there was no escape. Tappings makes sense given he had no way out.

    I though think long term it needs to get on TV at some point. I wouldn't think airing on Youtube makes them that much money. Filming from a studio doesn't cost much money, but it's also not generating much of a gate. I imagine they're saving a lot of money because of their format, but they're likewise probably not generating a lot of money.

    But I don't think the novelty will necessarily wear off to a huge degree. I think there's a legit audience out there for a shorter show will a more old school believable format, as opposed to the more sports entertainment or the flippy indy stuff. It's reasonably well booked, easily digestible for the format, and has descent talent (though little actual star power). Based purely on the product, I think there's room even in this congested market, to serve their particular niche. I'm just iffy whether or not their present business model is sustainable if they can't get on TV somewhere.

    Power doesn't have three r. That's just the styling on the logo.

    I don't think it will wear off being back to basics is the whole appeal of the program. It refreshing to see short competitive matches and everyone on a given episode get promo time to get themselves over.

    I'd partially disagree if that if you're a SUPER TOP baby face like a Hogan or an Austin or a Cena in their absolute prime, you probably should be protected from tapping. But other than that yeah... submission should be a valid way of winning a match. If submission loses made people look bad then people shouldn't be using submission finishes. A submission loss in theory should be no worse than getting KOed by a finishing move. It's just another way to beat their opponent.

    Drawing a gate isn't the point of studio wrestling. Studio wrestling is developed for a television audience with the live crowd being dressing. It's like when a sitcom is record in front of a live studio audience.
