    I just think the last 10 minutes were the great part. The rest was just good. And in a way, I think trying to deny that goes against what they aimed for all along....just a teaser, a deliberate holding back somewhat to wet the appetite for this showdown again.
    But that's just how I see it. We all see the matches differently, judge differently, I respect that.

    People give out 5 star rankings way too easily and regularly now. That said, Omega/Danielson may be the closest to 5 stars AEW has had so far. Slowing the match down for the commercial break killed some of the momentum. If they do it again on PPV it would rectify that, but then it would also have lost it's appeal of being the first time the two faced off in their current state. It's a catch-22.

    I preferred Omega/Page vs Bucks and Omega vs PAC (30 minute Iron), both from early 2020, to this one. Danielson/Omega here is definitely in the top 5 or so.

    I'd agree that Omega/PAC would give it a run for it's money, but I've always felt that Omega/Page/Bucks was overrated. It was good but not fantastic or anything. I actually preferred the Bucks/Lucha Bros. cage match over it.

    I respect that. I'm glad people haven't forgotten Omega vs PAC. It sometimes feels forgotten since it was a Dynamite match (and sorta pre-pandemic/pre-lockdown).

    Sadly I was outta town for the match. Not a huge star type wrestling fan who gives stars out. If a match was good I'd say as much or terrible . Back in the days of Raw/Nitro reviews I'd rank a show overall.


    If someone had said 62 year old Sting , years after a neck issue that could have ended his career could get into ring and do what I saw clips of last night I'd have said...no way. But its like he found the fountain of youth in AEW and can rock it.

    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.

    AEW Rampage is staying on TNT in 2022 instead of moving to TBS. Dynamite will still be moving to TBS, per WON.

    I was shocked Sting could still move that well.

    After all the stuff I read about Sting's physical condition, I thought he couldn't work anymore.

    I was really impressed...the guy is 62 years old.

    I’m satisfied with great matches, regardless of how they compare to each other or why; while special matches will always be special, great matches guarantee, regardless of whether they have four or five star, to supply the catharsis the storylines need to keep me reinvesting.

    The more AEW puts just enough pressure on Vince’s pride (rather than the company, since let’s be honest, his pride is more vulnerable than his company will ever be), the more likely he is to allow great matches like Big E’s this week, while AEW is still going to be doing that as part of their usual MO.

    The “Golden Ending” here is Vince being moved ever so slightly to stop enough of his control freak addictions to allow his Big Men, Over Ten Top Sports Entertainment product to be what it should be, and let AEW be the wrestling show at the same time, with the other companies being able to do their thing with them as well.

    I'd say recovering awhile helped. It helped Edge to heal up and stay at home awhile as he did so he could return as we see. Had Angle did it like Edge he'd likely be working today but Kurt kept going. (which as we know hit him years later body wise)


    Listening to an interview with Hulk Hogan on Austin's podcast he too wanted to do some quick surgeries and get himself healed a few years to return. He just never realized how badly his back surgeries would go. (9 total back surgeries and injecting stem cells into his back now which he claims helps)

    i don't see it. it can still be great even if they saved some stuff for the future. again, i have no issues with how you feel about the match. good, great, ok, whatever. i wasn't invested in the match anyways.

    that's more understandable as it's a real competition with set judging criteria, but yeah can still be pretty funny. for real comedy you should've seen some of our posters assessments of cm punk's mma "career" lololol.


    i have mixed feeling about impact. on one hand i've been saying josh alexander should be in the world title picture since he debuted, otoh i hate "option c" as i feel it's a huge contributor to the x-division never being able to regain it's magic. props to them for finally going all the way in on the inter-gender wrestling and not half assing it. i think it's one of those things you either do it or you don't.

    WWE has scrubbed all traces of Joe Gacy gimmick. I hope they didn't decide to kill it before it got going

    It seemed the gimmick got the wrong kind of attention.

    WWE has used a lot of "political" gimmicks to get what they want but we live in a different era now.

    EVERYTHING is political nowadays and people pay a lot more attention to some of this stuff than ever before.
