I wouldn't say I follow RoH in any meaningful way...but, Josh Woods? He's been around for a while, and I don't really have anything to say about him. I don't think he's really "making any noise" in RoH. (No more so than anyone else who's stuck over there). In fact, the only thing I really hear out of RoH is about Athena and her minion storyline.

Other than two Bryan matches, I think it’s been pretty underwhelming. Long, heatless matches. Too many competitive matches that shouldn’t be competitive. And a surprising lack of compelling tournament drama. Plus, this triple crown belt thing they’re competing for is confusing and pretty lame.

First off, Jay Lethal is a ring veteran and a guaranteed hall of famer in any promotion he's wrestled for. - Most wrestling fans are not looking at him as a "lower-card" "joke"...they're looking at him as someone who is capable when used correctly. (Maybe he hasn't been used correctly in a long time...but, the capability is always there). 

The entire point of this tournament is to increase the value of as many performers as possible in a short period of time. AEW knows they have a problem with a lack of starpower. - When you look at the overall roster, Lethal is a name that has been a world champion in the past. He's a proven commodity. It makes all the sense in the world to use the format of the tournament to shine him up a bit, even if he is obviously not going to win. 

Also, 10 minutes isn't a long match. - You make it sound like Lethal is doing 25 or 30 minutes and people are sleeping. - Going "over 10 minutes" is not some grave injustice to the television audience. So, yeah...it's a garbage take. - If it bores you, then take a walk and come back. (Ten minutes is not a long time).

The tournament is a marathon, not a sprint. I don't know what you would rather see on AEW. (Genuine question). - There has been a level of consistency and logic added to the weekly format since the tournament started. - Feel free to tell me what they should be doing instead...because, you certainly complained plenty about what they were doing before the tournament. (You are constantly complaining about AEW in general...so it's hard to validate any new criticism).

I like Jay Lethal. He’s a guy I wish was pushed and treated better. But that’s not the reality we live in. His entire tenure in AEW has been in lower-card-land. I didn’t book that. Tony Khan did. He treats him like a joke and having him losing in competitive won’t change that. You know what would change that? Book him to win matches and treat him like a somebody instead of a nobody like they have.

It’s all window dressing. Tony’s booking is the exact same thing it has always been. It’s yet another superficial gimmick he’s come with.

11 to 14 mins (to be more precise) is a good chunk of time for TV matches. You can tell a lot of story in that timespan. That same timespan is a lifetime for cold TV matches featuring a lower-card guy competing competitively against ppl higher up on the card.

Well for starters, Tony should stop booking.

Golden Jets stinking up the joint. That segment was roughhh. 

Jericho has zero redeeming values at this point in his career, and I don't give a shit about saying so.

He drags down anything he's associated with. - He was never that great of an asset in AEW to begin with. (Maybe in the VERY beginning, just to have a big name get eyes on the product). But, it's been a dreadfully long time since there has been any payoff whatsoever. 

Kenny seems bored, lost, and generally disinterested in tagging with him...and I don't blame him. The team name is stupid. Nobody is buying it. It's literally not a thing. There is no demand for Golden Jets merch or demand for the team in general. They aren't a commodity...they're nothing. It feels like something that was thrown together to give Jericho purpose, which is exactly what it is.

Couldn't agree more, he's got go away heat with me these days.

How many years was his current deal? I feel he ain't going away anytime soon. 

 

Also are they gonna do some with Kenny ever?! He's been coasting for so damn long, he repeatedly gets dragged down by his Elite buddies. At this point I don't know if he's the problem and he's fine doing this slop or he  easily led by the likes of the Bucks and Jericho? 

He's meant to be the 'greatest wrestler alive' but he's spent a good 75% of his AEW run doing absolute w*nk with his little divvy friends that literally can't draw a dime.

The mods over at reddit are working overtime banning anything "negative" on the Omega issues.

I was banned for this reply:

If he went to wwe,he'd have people (ADULTS) around him watching out for his health..

Hope he stays on the sidelines long enough to get fully healthy, I bet it's been a long time since he was 100% healthy..

The crazy thing is how many belts they have between AEW and RoH...and yet, they still find a way to keep most of them hung up around the same handful of people. Three belts tied to the tournament...and up until last night, MJF was holding the RoH tag belts hostage for no discernably good reason. - Then there's OC with the International belt that might as well not even exist.

I'm really hoping this PPV juggles some things around and we get back on track with some of the championships and actual feuds.
