  1. I think WWE have delivered so far at the halfway point. Granted its not what it would have been with an arena of fans but they kept me entertained throughout the show even with the couple of duds. (Braun/Goldberg was short enough to zone out during).

    Also, i imagine that boneyard match was infinitely better than a Taker/AJ match in the ring would have been.


  2. Can't say that it really sold me on the tv show. (I only have seen a few clips of past AEW stuff so this is basically my first full show i've seen from them)

     

    A couple of matches that devolved into finisher-level move spamming, then the women's title match was a strange strange choice. Rose's size and beefiness made all of the veryyy small Riho's offense seem like nothing, and Rose seems very sloppy in the ring too. Neither came out of it looking great.

     

    The main event was fine, seemed to be just a showcase type of thing for the main eventers and top teams (I'm guessing) but was a bit of a mess. Swagger being positioned as a top guy doesn't resonate with me at all either but i haven't seen him since his WWE days so will reserve judgement there. Moxley definitely seems much better off out of WWE

     

    I was really hoping to see Luchasaurus as i see so many random things about him online, and have heard alot of good stuff about Lucha Brothers too, so was a bit disappointed they weren't in matches.

     

    All in all, can't say it made me an AEW fan, felt like they did nothing to help a new viewer understand what they have going on.That said, benefit of the doubt, Ill probably check out next week's show and flick through it.


  3. Watching through 1998 im learning just how structured modern WWE shows are. Half of the matches on these old ppvs have zero build, some are tag matches with people who have never teamed together. It all has much more of a flow to it, over the artificialness of today's weekly shows. Not sure if any of that made sense.


  4.  

    Undertaker just sort of dropped his gimmick for a while before the Ministry days. (I've been binging the attitude era tv shows)

    lol same, he did a worked shoot promo in regular clothes, choke slammed half the roster in regular clothes

     

    Also notable was how uncomfortable he seemed in the promo. His voice was wavering and breaking the entire time. As someone who only ever saw ppvs from this era previously (so undertaker focused and working his best), it was bizarre


  5. Starting to get into a bunch of new animes, ive seen Death Note, Durarara, Angel Beats, black butler, Persona 4 (would definately recommend this to anyone who played the game) and of course the common ones, digimon, pokemon, yugioh etc. My favourites being Death Note (the first half of the series is the best storytelling in any media ive ever seen imo, just a perfect story with perfect characters, the second half, was good, but i wasnt a Near fan, in the slightest.) Also loved Durarara and Angel beats. Havnt yet seen an Anime i havnt enjoyed.

     

    Oh, except Naruto

     

    Naruto sucks.

     

    Have started watching Attack on Titans, Ghost Hunt and Magi. Any others that you guys think i would like that are similar to the ones ive seen/like?
