  1. Danhausen and Hook are a lot of fun to play...but thats it. Im currently finishing my last Road to Elite run and then im sadly done with the game. There is just absolutely nothing to do anymore. I squeezed everything out of this game i could. And just 1-2 matches every few days are simply not enough for me to keep playing, as fun as the Gameplay is. Its super sad, this game could have run so long on hype and updates...it could have easily run 4-5 years with constant content updates. But the reality is that it cant even hold on 1 year, and that is super sad. Because like i always say, there is not much wrong with the game. It plays well, feels good and works nicely. It has a good foundation that has potential. The game just mainly lacks content...and that sucks. Like, i could deal with it if it would just be a bad game that dies fast. But its not bad, its fun and i enjoy playing it. Its just that there is not much to play in there for long.
  2. Like, there are a handfull of Indie wrestlers already warning indie promotions that they would refuse to do business with them if they hire Riddle. Hardy and Riddle are two different cases completely. Riddle is scum, simple as that. Im not sad he is gone, i will be more sad if i see him in any promotion i like. I could see UFC being the final reason that they released him. From what i gathered, nobody in UFC liked the guy...and that says a lot. If you got some of the worst right wing people in UFC and they dont like a scumbag like Riddle? Wow.
  3. The Releases be what they are, unfortunate but many of them werent used and can elevate themself outside of the WWE a lot more because they have more restrictions in the WWE. What makes it so much more scummy is that this comes hours after they announced this billion dollar deal with the USA Network. Like its such a garbage move on their part. Sure its never good when the company who constantly celebrates how much money they make, fires people. But doint that just hours after such a huge deal, just looks this much more awful.
  4. Isnt that with Emi meant to be "in character"? But yeah, she goes a bit too far with stuff. I often want to give her more benefit of doubt because of the sheer bullying she faced for years and still does...but she goes way too far. Like that one guy said something dumb about Womens Wrestling, but she kept insulting and bullying the guy several times. One tweet is fine, but literally checking out the guys profile and all that is pointless bullshit. And the way she handles it when people call out her shitty boyfriend...is also rather questionable.
  5. Its Unfortunate, especially since they have this fallout in the public and all...really sad to see. I dont think any of them has a big future ahead as Solo wrestlers, but what can you do? If things between that turned this bad, its best to go seperate ways. Nothing wrong with what they want from their Careers, but its sad when this is put out in the open.

    WWE Drama

    Yeah. Like, we should take these accusations serious, but its Matt Riddle...the man has a questionable track record telling the truth. But again, we should take this serious.
  7. One day, sadly not today or Tomorrow...people will realize how utterly dumb they sound with the Ratings talk. Like, WWE makes record profit, AEWs value rises as we speak, Impact can upgrade their presentation because money is there, Joshi Wrestling rises in Popularity, NJPW does so well, many indy promotions pointed out that the number of tickets sold is up. And some can only think about the childish Tribalism which good running wrestling show on TV does better. One day we will leave this behind and just enjoy wrestling...i hope i will be still alive when that day comes.
  8. A Part timer deal would be perfect for Punk. Go in, get paid...dont have to deal with shit, done. But the question is if the WWE is willing to take the risk, because you just never know what triggers Punk and his moods. I feel like being as involved in AEW as he was, maybe that was part of the problem. Like, he is one who wants to go things his way, if he doesnt get that...he can be hard to work with. A part timer deal would not have him around too much. Also, with NXT etc the wwe has created a environment where there are rookies who will listen and take advice...in AEW you have mostly guys who made it this far on their own and have a certain confidence etc that can make them a bit too cocky where Punk giving advice isnt as good as with these Rookies at NXT etc. Of course going back to the wwe would make Punk a Hypocrite...but that he is that, is not a shocker at this point. People kind of have built this idea around punk that he is more an idealist than he really is. Good enough offer and he would have gone back to the WWE long ago. If you look at it, this in the end could be a win/win for everyone. AEW has one less "problem" backstage, Punk who wasnt happy doesnt need to show up anymore, and as part timer in the wwe, they could have all the benefits with little of the negatives attached to Punk if its done right.
  9. More than likely yeah. The rumor is that Punk visiting Raw was him seeing if he could get back into the WWE...absolutely wild. I just said yesterday he burned bridges there and all...but then, its WWE...wilder things have happened. And i could see a WM program happen for Punk. You know, that could also be a nice way to end his wrestling career. Have him be at the Rumble, start a program there for a WM night one main event...everything he ever wanted. Then he retires. Would be absolutely insane if that happens. We will see what the Cm Punk story holds in store in the next months. Maybe it all turn into a win/win situation for everyone. Gone from AEW who can breath a sigh of relief now, going back to the WWE for one final run. What a weird wrestling year we had either way so far.
  10. Unlikely, maybe NJPW but for that i think he is too old. The Only two companies who have the money to pay him, he burned bridges with. Impact, NWA just dont have the money to pay him.
  11. Insane, when you expect the worst from a show...they deliver the best. I didnt thought the crowd would be this welcoming...but i guess i underestimated how much AEW built a fanbase in Chicago. A few "just" good TV quality matches, but the rest was incredible good.
  12. The Wheeler thing? Well allegedly he just showed people the gun that he was in an altercation with. Do people get fired if they get in fights or so outside of their Job? I would think that literally again punching people during the Job is more cause for firing than what goes on outside of work...but that comes down to what is happening. Punk got fired for the attack but allegedly there were many instances that made the ice thin for him. So its not "just" backstage fight but again i find it really questionable how people kind of downplay the fact that this man when coming face to face with someone, had to resort to violence. Even in wrestling, this should be unacceptable. That is being overly dramatic. Its not like people literally fight constantly backstage. That not everyone is on friendly terms should be clear. Sure a stronger leadership would be good to keep everyone in line...but its not like the wild west there.
  13. In what way? Story goes they go in the fight and several officials etc broke it up, Punk threatened to quit and Samoa joe talked him down from that and all. These are rather fast things, they dont last 10-15 minutes so i doubt he and Perry were on each throats for minutes before finally someone stopped them. Gone probably just a minute or 2. I really wanna know what Punk did here. Like, i dont trust Meltzer on this at all...but im curious what happened there. It must really have messed with Tony Khan, he probably never expected Punk to be angry at him.
  14. And like he doesnt strike me as one who was ever in fights or even screaming matches or so. He is not used to being screamed at or worse. He strike as a very shelter man who just isnt used to confrontation and Introvert. Imagine a CM Punk full of adrenaline during a real fight lunging in your direction, screaming at you and all. No surprise if he is completely overwhelmed by that.
  15. Ehm no, according to several reports...he literally lunged at him. People have to be real here. If Khan is forced to fire Punk, the man he was bending backwards to please...then the things were as closer to what the worst reports state. Simply as that. Its unfortunate, but a needed thing to do from AEW. Walking on Eggshells around Punk, was never working out for long. Its damn shame...the man has what? 3-4 years left as wrestler and it could have been cool...but you cant change CM Punk. Punk is who he is and always was, one for confrontation. If the investigation that includes footage and many eye witnesses comes to the conclussion that its best to fire Punk...then Punk is not innocent on this at all.
  16. Man, you cant go to sleep when stuff like this happens because you miss so much stuff. So to recap, it was revealed that nobody was picked up from the Airport, not just Punk. Then a story came out with Miro and Punk, claiming them almost throwing hands...just to be revealed they were joking around about it. Then the story varies from Punk having a heated talk with Khan in the open to just in the locker room. You cant take your eyes off of this for a second it seems. The whole situation in general pisses me off so much. AEW just came from a record breaking, fantastic Wembley show...and again all people can talk about is backstage shit. Really unfortunate.
  17. But why? I just dont get how this situation could bother someone so freaking hard. Like how? So he couldnt use real glass on a segment...why is this a thing that rubbed him the wrong way so much that he held onto it for some time and planned to take a shot during a PPV? I just cant wrap my head around it.
  18. If that all is true, this guys ass needs to be fired. *censored*ing Unprofessional and unacceptable...absolutely unacceptable. Take care of talent no matter your personal feelings. If he cant do that...fire his ass.
  19. Yup. People keep thinking about new content, i think about them fixing their god damn content that is not working. We still have the dumb logo fading when stretching, we still have the weird uneven mapping, the cut off when it comes to body parts etc. So much core issues with the creation suite, so many limitations. I dont even use most of the coats, glasses etc the game has. What i do is creating full sleeve tattoos that get cut off, i do tights that tediously have to be done because the shitty way 2k decided that the tights need to be cut into 3 parts, making creating tights unbearable tedious. Fix the core problems instead of thinking new clothing pieces etc will mask the huge problems.
  20. The question is on that, who got Physical first. And seeing Punks history, it seems he is more a trash talker than one who would throw the first punch. He got into verbal fights, but physical fights not really. But then, an older Punk being faced with young talent who gets into his face...who knows. Punk isnt one to back down easy so its possible that in this case Perry was in his face, punk shoved him away and stuff. But we just know the 100% there what exactly happened. I dont know what more Khan can do at this point. Fire people...but thats all. And you got Locker Room Leaders like Jericho and Moxley that already tried to talk sense into people. What more could Khan do there?
  21. Drama just follows Punk were he goes. But this time im not sure if i would blame him. The man was worried about the safety of the workers some weeks ago when Perry wanted real glass. Perry held a grudge till ALL IN, did the spot with allegedly real glass, took a shot at punk on air, then walked backstage and gotten into his face. Like how? Dude just felt real glass was dangerous to use. How is that a thing to hold a grudge and stuff? A very weird story at the moment, one of these things really pointless to start a fight over. Like why would you even want to have real glass? That stuff is super dangerous and not worth the possible injuries. Either way however, Khan has to be careful. I get that Punk sells well, but it never was a good idea to have a Wrestler calling the shots. I cant remember any story where such power for one Wrestler benefited a company.
  22. I currently a bit drained in terms of Wrestling because of bray wyatts death and all that, but before that i had time to play and watch the Stadium stampede mode. Its a fun mode that has the usual AEW FF problem...lack of content. Okay its a bit clunky to control too, but you can get used to that easier than the fact that there is really not much to it. You can not interact with a ton of things inside the stadium, outside of 3-4 weapons you get the same stuff. There is nothing really to unlock outside of stats and really not too much else. Dont get me wrong, its a fun idea and has charm. Its so outside of the norm and all and has potential, but it wont keep the playes around for too long. For that it just lacks content and variations. If we could unlock new costumes or wrestlers, weapons etc...that would be good. If we would have another Stadium with a different design and all...would be good. Again, its fun and something unique...but it lacks content and replayability. Outside of the fun of playing the mode...which can only hold players for a month or so...this modes biggest problem is what is the games biggest problem...lack...of...content.
  23. Yeah, not watching NXT or in General WWE a lot, makes it hard to know who these Wrestlers are. Thing is, its often even hard to use their moves or attires for caws. Often the moves have specific taunts or so in them that you can only use if you got caws that are characterwise like that. Attires often are too restricted so you have trouble working with those too. Entrances and Music i feel works the most with this DLC stuff.
  24. That is not really their fault. Like they made it over and over clear its not to compete with the wwe games...so people still dumbly comparing two vastly different games, is not their fault at all. Considering the positives the game has, i do think it was the right thing to do instead of just doing AEW2k23. If i want that, i can play wwe2k23 with AEW Caws. But i dont want that, i want a fun game that isnt tedious and boring to play. Where things gone "wrong" i dont really know. They say the game was so expensive, but i dont see it. Like they said the RTE was so expensive, but where? Its not like there is voice acting or a lot of animations etc in the mode. Anyway...i dont think it is hard to overtake the wwe2k games. In terms of Gameplay, AEW easily clears that...like literally in stuff like how the punches feel...the very basics outclass the WWE games. People suddenly act like wwe2k is some pinnacle of wrestling games when for years we all literally keep saying how we just still there because of the creation suite. And that is kind of shitty if you think about it. Like you got a great game with AEW that delivers fun gameplay, but people act completely insane towards it because it doesnt offer 353462346 hair options in caw. I mean yeah the creation suite has become THE factor in Wrestling games, but it kind of shows how much damage 2k did when that is the make or break point of a game and not how it plays and all. So i do feel that if they can add this, if they can add on the creation suite big time...its a done deal. Like the basics are there for AEW...it is just that it lacks content. It can not be said enough. The game on all its basics, is good. It is not too buggy, you didnt need 135425 patches. Its fun, easy to play and feels good. All the basic content is there...you just need to add Content. And again, that is kind of sad imo because it shows how little the wwe series offers...with how little we as community were okay with.
