I really don't ever turn it off but I was close to doing that this past week when they had Omega and the Good Brothers go through a break against a job team and an enhancement talent. As Jim would say, what the fuck! They had Marko Stunt looking competitive against FTR! If you want to have these guys on the show and give them a paycheck then fine, but make it a damn squash, having them be competitive against your top tier guys is insane and does nothing but make those guys look bad.

    SD is the limit of my WWE these days, and the PPVs...NXT just doesn't hook me when I have tried to watch it and Raw is horrible on a weekly basis. The Roman storyline is pretty good...most of the matches are well worked, continuing storylines. Giving pushes to guys like Cesaro and Shinsuke and Jey Uso...Chad Gable getting a nice rub working with Daniel Bryan the past couple weeks. Definitely the best of the women's division on any of the main shows. It's a decent show for 2021 wrestling standards.
    Nothing on AEW is believable for me. That's why I quit watching. There's no psychology in any of their matches and they have guys the size of grade schoolers out there getting offense in on much larger opponents. I gave them the benefit of the doubt at first as trying to get some guys over with the crowd/audience but it's the same shit each week. FTR should have went over on the Bucks for the titles. Bucks can't even lace FTR's boots and shouldn't even be in the ring at the same time as them. Jericho has become a complete waste and a joke. I just can't watch that garbage anymore. I wanted an alternative to WWE, especially RAW and AEW has became just as bad, if not worse IMO. At least RAW has wrestlers I care to watch wrestle even if the booking is complete shit. I will admit that NXT has done down hill lately as well though.

    Smackdow is the only show I can sit through, and even it has it's "why am I watching this" moments.

    Sting's return match is booked. Sting and Darby against Brian Cage and Ricky Starks in a street fight. I'm guessing this will be a pre-filmed match to ensure Sting's safety. How cool for Ricky, Darby, and Cage, who honestly are 3 of the guys I like most in AEW.

    I wouldn't be surprised if it was filmed before it was even announced to ensure he could actually do it.

    True, lol.

    Did you see NBC Sports Network is getting shut down and their programming is moving to USA? Means NASCAR moving to Monday because of delays could pre-empt RAW and during hockey season that could mean NHL Wednesday Night Hockey which would mean no NXT to counter-program AEW. NXT ratings have been bad recently too...Vince can't be happy.

    After nearly killing himself with a Lionsault last week which drew Cornette's ire, last night Jericho hit what had to be the best Lionsault of his entire life. Dude got some serious air on it.

    Jungle Boy vs. Dax was probably one of the best matches AEW has ever had. What a lot of us AEW fans have wanted to see more of, Jungle Boy as a solo wrestler, and Dax is a great guy to put him against. JB went over, and FTR got their heat back afterward, amazingly they actually booked an angle that made sense for once.

    Also, his height is always going to be a detriment, but I am completely sold on John Silver. He is highly entertaining, he looks good (again other than his height), he can work. I really like him. Out of the various Dark Order job guys he's one they could actually do something with. Brian has talked about Dark Order being super over whenever live crowds are back and they probably will be, but Silver will be one of the most over guys on the entire roster with the AEW core fans that return to their shows.

    Yeah. Also, wwe network will now be shifted to NBC's Peacock app starting sometime in March. It's only happening to US subscribers though.

    I haven't seen. Are they saying he'll beat Drew? I think that's pretty likely honestly. I dunno if I think they brought him back here just to do the job.

    PPV has been great so far. I may not make it through the entire men's Rumble which hasn't started as of 9:40, but everything to this point has been strong. Well, except Drew/Goldberg, but that was only 2 minutes and Drew won so that's ok.

    My only complaint is they gave Alexa like 1 minute in the Women's Rumble. And I'm just pissed because quite frankly I was hoping to look at her a little longer. LOL.

    Now that it's over, the rumor was Oldberg was winning the title against Drew, then entering the Rumble at 30th and winning that too. That was to lead up to the champ vs champ match with Reigns at Mania. Supposedly it was highly considered, but I think they were just saying it because of how they have booked Oldberg lately.

    Either way, glad it didn't happen. :)
