    Lambert to be fair really never went far as he could have. Its like AEW really never knew how to push the character and gimmick. Cornette enjoyed it from what I remember him saying and knew it was basically a lot of what he'd say at times. But its like...Lambert had Sky and Page in his group and we'd see him appear rarely and the group never really went anywhere.

    I think a theory could be ...they really had no idea what to do with it all as Lambert was a great promo cutter its just Sky I believe got injured and they moved Page to something else , leaving a manager who can't wrestle in programs.

    They honestly should ride Jarrett , he's getting best heel heat and it would be crazy to cut that. MJF is getting cheers. Ride the guy getting the heat and see what happens. (But yeah make Jeff a quasi wrestler is my stance..)

    September 2021 was a hard month. 1st Norm McDonald died and then we learned Disney is ruining Indiana Jones in 2022. Just a hard month to take. Hopefully the film tanks.

    This past week AEW did its worst demo rating since March 2021. In fact the rare bright spots was the opening and MJF deals. But overall the episode just lost viewers through put.

    No idea if Khan is looking at these ratings fully but this wasn't a good week.

    “About, maybe, two months ago we finished up our feud with the Men of the Year and Scorpio Sky against Wardlow, and Sky dropped the belt to Wardlow. Sky was going to take a couple months off because he had a knee injury that needed to heal and [Ethan] Page was getting repackaged to doing what he’s doing now with The Firm and the work with MJF.

    “So, I just thought that was a good time. Seemed like it was winding down, I felt like I was getting stale even though the reactions were still good, it was still fun. I just grabbed Tony [Khan] after that show and said, ‘I think it ran its course, I don’t want to go backward or overstay my welcome so I think that’s going to do it for me,’ and he was like, ‘Oh man, sure, whatever you want, if maybe we come up with a good idea you come back in the future.’”
    Lambert made the call... He knows when to bow out.

    Something Slapnuts, and well ... A lot of veteran wrestlers need to do as well.

A fact Billy Gunn months before any of this b.s. with Punk began , spoke up and said that the young guys need to learn to save their bodies for the big shows to have longer careers.

    It came out later Punk himself was trying to push for the younger guys to not kill themselves. And guess who WAS F'N RIGHT ? Punk and Billy Gunn as Ruby Soho almost got her career ended with a crazy spot months ago and Adam Cole may have to retire due to a severe concussion. The veterans were right. That ahole the locker room hates (well the ones kissing Elite ass) was right ! (Notice how Billy Gunn hasn't been called an ahole for saying the same deal ?)
    maybe billy isn't a total asshat like punk and that's why he hasn't been called that.

    i like to imagine punk giving the young boys in the back a lesson on saving their bodies for the big events and big matches, then promptly goes out and injures himself doing a stage dive BEFORE his throwaway 6 man tag on dynamite. lead by xample as they say!!

    Speaking of the Elite and the whole aspect you keep saying how "Well Punk told them to come to his face..." well if your a fellow wrestler and not in a position of power , maybe you do this. Maybe not...but you don't do it when your Executives in a company and as reports later claimed ...bring along your flunkies , Christopher Daniels as VP of Talent and the lady lawyer who works in AEW. So all these folks came into locker room and of course hell broke loose. (Which again shows you how this should have been handled with Khan and company calling a meeting the next day....and not a wild brawl)
    idk, if you aren't actually looking for a fist fight bringing witnesses might not be a bad idea, seems like it worked out alright for them.


    Now onto FTR ...if the time line fits FTR was basically "belt collectors" and getting all the tag team belts. It made more sense for FTR to beat the Young Bucks for the AEW World tag team titles to further that. In fact as this shows the Bucks have never put them over for the tag team titles like they really should have.
    you mean ftr didn't put the bucks over for the roh & aaa titles like they should have??

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/AEW_Wo...m_Championship

    If I was FTR and they were like...we want you to put over Acclaim , I'd be like ...yeah sure we will. Just like you pieces of sh-t put us over when it came time to do it ...right ?
    so multiple teams are supposed to put ftr over but they shouldn't put anybody over??

    In all the Elite themselves proved what they were as Booker T even called out the childish behavior in vlogs and on TV. That if things go south for AEW in a few years these actions will be a reason. (Unless its an angle...and well it would make sense to use this as an angle)
    sounds like pissy cheerios to me.
    EDIT TO ADD : In looking FTR actually put the Bucks over and lost to them in 2020. So yeah FTR did put over the Young Bucks as we see. Then when it came time to repay the favor guess what...didn't happen.
    actually in looking a bit closer the bucks defeated ftr in 2020 and ftr defeated the bucks in 2022. according to my math that makes them even, of course now ftr refuses to put the bucks over in the rubber match.

They want their Impact stars, their ROH stars etc to be on a bigger stage and to show that they are that damn good.
    Well, Kahn started out that way but now it seems like he is bringing in older wrestlers, not to mentor but to star. I mean, does JJ bring anything to the table that they don't already have for wrestlers? Sure if they stuck him with a young talent, like they did with Sting and Darby, but they stuck him with Old Reliable, Jay Lethal. Sure they have chemistry and history, but Jay didn't need the rub. Put JJ with a lesser known talent to give them a Rub or send him backstage.
    Me, I love JJ, but I don't want him taking the spotlight from someone that needs it or deserves it in their career, right now.

    i try not to compare aew to wwe too much and just look at what each is for what IT is but man lately with squash matches and at times sacrificing quality for the HEAT i did start catching some wwe vibes. i've always said aew's strong point was knowing their audience and i'll continue to give the benefit of the doubt for now i just hope they keep their eye on the ball.

    sure he is.

    the lambert thing never made sense. he's a great talker but he'd rant on how wrestler should be mean and tough and not these woke millennial sissys and then right beside him were sky & page who totally seem like they start their mornings with a skinny latte and avocado toast. should've put him with silas young or something.

    current line up for
    PWG BOLA 2023
    michael oku
    shun skywalker
    masha slamovich
    mike bailey
    komander
    alex shelley
    jonathan gresham
    aramis
    titus alexander
    jordynne gace
    interesting mix, surprising the amount of impact talent.

    It doesn't seem the game coming this month. There still no release date. Might as well drop him and add FTR back
