Regal's Knee Trembler

I'm saying. His version looks pretty damn good too.

I think too many people do the knee trembler for his to look much different. I know its slightly different, but does he really wanna do a move similar to the V-Trigger?

Is the Paradigm Shift or the Death Rider the Dirty Deeds where he lifts them? The sort of impaler double underhook ddt. That suits him just fine.

I have figured out my problem with Britt Baker. I think shes a solid talent with good potential, but when she wrestles she looks like shes trying too many moves for the first time. She looks like a person playing modern wrestler like an Adam Cole or Gargano or Pentagon, except she isnt quite good enough. Just yet anyway. Shes more of a Bella than a Tessa atm, but she seems like shes trying too hard to be the latter.

She can only get better though.

I hope Lucha Brothers split soon. Pentagon is better as a ruthless heel. And Rey could be the next babyface Mysterio type.

I want them to win the AEW tag titles but eventually, yeah would be cool if they split and do their own thing like in Lucha Underground

Oddly enough I was thinking about them as singles wrestlers earlier. Feels like for the longest time when they broke into the US it was near impossible to see them team together and now it's rare to see them apart. I hope they do go their own way eventually. They're a bit of an odd fit if you look at them. Like Gens said, Fenix could be the next Rey and Penta is a dark heel type. If they weren't brothers it would be a real head scratcher as to why they were together lol.

 

I'd love to see a mask match between/involving them some day. Don't know how they'd feel about unmasking one another though or if they'd want to do that outside of their native country

So, the problem with that is Pentagon Jr isn't a very good wrestler. He was amazing in Lucha Underground where a ton was going on and his matches weren't that long but the more matches i seen with him outside of LU the more i noticed he looks lost alot and does a *Censored* ton of Cero Merdo taunts in singles matches where in tag matches he does the same thing but Fenix is usually doing shit to kinda mask it.

I mainly saw the Lucha Bros in Impact. Of the two I do like Fenix better but I enjoy their team as well. But yeah Pentagon spams Cero Merdo way too much.

I have a feeling Christopher Daniels is gonna come back jealous and cost SCU the belts, thus starting a feud that will sadly be the parts I skip on Dynamite, AEW has been pretty good at making me care about things but I just have so little interest in SCU. Like so many ROH and ROH Alumni, They got the gimmick as far as it was gonna go, they should have changed up long ago.

You're already saying you're gonna skip something that is probably not going to happen?

I have a idea of where something is going and said how I'd skip such thing because of those involved...because I am talking about wrestling, like everyone here. Calm down please. I'm allowed to have a opinion on a forum, That's what forums are for.

Speaking of ROH talents...I kinda just hope RoH dies at this point. I haven't cared about anything they've done in years...and a place like AEW would definitely benefit from grabbing people like the Briscoes and Jay Lethal (who I don't expect to abandon RoH otherwise). 

 

* I take that back...PCO has been cool. The past decent chunk of time in RoH has been kept afloat mostly by PCO and his antics. Which...is not necessarily a good thing in itself. Lol.

This is like my one issue with Pentagon. He does that freaking taunt every bigger move he does, and like 15 times within the first minute of the match.

It really bugs me that Omega & Janela are killing themselves for a *censored*ing dark match on YouTube. Why the *Censored* is that not on TV? I dont wanna go out of my way to watch an hour long show of dark matches, show me that on TV! Matches with guys that didnt get TV time doesnt bother me, so Im not saying scrap the concept, but must see matches like that should not be given away on YouTube instead of TV IMO.

They've intentionally created AEW Dark as a second show. That's why. 

 

These matches are shot (before?) the main show, I think(?). So...it's not like they're dark matches between commercial breaks or anything like that. It's like...an intentional bit of filming that they're doing just to make another show. They're giving you these big matches so that you also go out of your way to watch AEW Dark. That's the point of it. It's like another step towards competing with WWE. They can't have a second show on television (at least not yet)...so they're trying to compete with Raw/SD/NXT by having Dynamite/Dark. It shouldn't at all be read as "these matches should be on tv"...nobody is being snubbed by having an AEW Dark match. It shouldn't be viewed that way.

And Janella/Omega actually took place after Dynamite so they are showing Dark matches on both ends of the night.

I do think they should have named it something else, tbh. Naming it 'Dark' makes it feel second-rate for the exact reasons mentioned. Surely they could have come up with a Dynamite-related name that gives the impression of having extra explosions or something.

Did they get After Dark from Vince Russo? Sounds like Russo shenanigans to me
