    I have zero issue with KUSHIDA dropping the belt to Strong. My issue is with KUSHIDA being an immediate afterthought in order to transition into yet another new guy that I'm supposed to think is worthy of a title shot because......reasons?

This is a formula that can't be often repeated, well maybe it can until Survivor Series but it was good to see WWE make the effort. Competition is good for pro wrestling.
    Not going to lie, I kind of see last night’s Raw as proof that WWE is easily able to do what it needs to with only minor pressure being felt *and acknowledged* by Vince. The issue, of course is whether or not his preference for what end up being systemic problems with his product overcome the clear common sense he can and does have and occasionally uses.

    Considering the direction NXT wants to take the entire cruiserweight division will be an afterthought. Maybe Kushida can go back into the North American title hunt.

    I'm excited like it's a PPV for Dynamite and Rampage. AEW to their credit has had a better build up to this special (which I hear may become annual).

    Good Danielson interview today, two excerpts:

    [Danielson]: (Vince) used this analogy with me a lot. He likened me to a racehorse who needs a bit in their mouth because some races horses need a bit in their mouth because you need to be able to control the racehorse. If you don’t they’ll run themselves into the ground. When he said that in the back of my mind I’d always think, “Yeah, but I’d kind of rather be a wild horse rather than a racehorse with a bit in my mouth. That was a big point too as far as signing with AEW.

    Q: Did you have a conversation with Vince before you made the decision or tell him that you were leaving?

    A: Besides my wife, he was the first person I told. He and I have a great relationship. That was actually one of the harder things about leaving. Because I had such a positive experience in WWE. From my perspective, I have a lot of respect and love for him and that was one of the hardest things. Like, I don’t want him to think I’m betraying him or anything like that. It was really hard. One of the main reason’s why it took me so long to make the decision was my loyalty to Vince.
    Q: Are there guys at the top of your list in AEW that you want to make sure you wrestle?

    A: Jon Moxley and I had wrestled in WWE, but never on a super big singles match of anything like that. I would love to wrestle him and Cody. But then there are the young guys that I really think are interesting matches. Darby Allin is becoming a huge star but I’m really intrigued by Dante Martin. He’s not the biggest name on the list, but he can just do so many incredible things. There’s Jungle Boy, there’s MJF. Hangman Page is only 30 years old.

    I'm gaining more respect for and enjoyment from Moxley. I think Danielson is a kind of wrestler that can make Moxley great, look great. Bring that 1996/97 "I can still mat wrestle too" Stone Cold out of him that he really needs IMHO.

    Mox is great at 1998 Stone Cold, but 1996 Survivor Series Stone Cold (or 1997 pre-injury Austin) is way better. We've only seen that a couple or few times with Mox in AEW so far.

    Danielson vs Darby, Dante, Jungle Boy, MJF, Hangman ....YES to all of these.

    Some DERT SHEETZ are reporting Sting is in different makeup backstage tonight.

    Joker Sting perhaps??

    Probably just rumor mongers.

    Great Dynamite overall. Omega vs Danielson was not as great as it should have been (especially considering the super hot crowd), but it seems clear they intended the match as a teaser of a larger PPV match to come down the road.

    Don't get me wrong, Danielson vs Omega was very good....just not great great.

    I thought Omega vs Danielson was great. I thought taking it slow was the right call. Crowd hung on to everything they did. They popped for a collar & elbow tie up. When they have that level of investment there;s no need to do anything crazy

    You need to do crazier things to win over Meltzer and/or the Cagematch.com crowd though. The hot crowd was not enough for me, because I saw the action, and it wasn't crazy cool enough, nor every move perfectly executed either. And I'm not even much subtracting from the match due to the no-finish, I don't factor that in much.

    It was simply a very good match that I hope was just a teaser for an even greater PPV match down the road.
