I know that he has a large online presence and crap like that. If he was that good, he would've been sent to NXT to help out the younger talent. I do know that since the gyms were closed, he was doing more of a bodyweight type of workout.

He was.... He went to NXT and worked with Mojo Rawley as the Hype Bros.

"If he was that good, he would've been sent to NXT to help out the younger talent"  FF is putting a comical amount of faith in WWE.  This is the company that tried to push David Otunga instead of Daniel Bryan.  Being good has nothing to do with it.  Tons of guys should be working with younger talent to make them better.  WWE doesn't want them better.  They want them to be part of the system, nothing more, nothing less.

They were pushing Otunga to get to his wife, Jennifer Hudson.

Eddie Kingston has now officially signed with AEW after his impressive match against Cody. No word on Warhorse yet.

I don't think Warhorse was that impressive. Eddie Kingston is the whole package. Awesome promo, and a great old-school style brawler. Also don't think there's much mileage in Warhorse's gimmick.

I thought the match was fine but i don't get the gimmick of the Ultimate Warrior being left in the dryer too long and coming out a metalhead.

Every once in a while you come up with a good one. You gotta admit, he wasn't exactly a bad in ring worker though.

I thought Warhorse was great and was far more deserving of a roster shot than Kingston...course, Kingston prob knows someone there and Warhorse doesn't, I love AEW but it's fairly obvious it's nothing but a plaything for Cody and Kahn..

Strong rumor that Eric Bischoff is going to appear on Dynamite this week.

Yep. The Observer website posted it in their daily news bulletin on Thursday without any spoiler warning, which I thought was a bit off, unless they wanted the news to get out. I didn't post anything because I would have liked it to be a surprise myself, and I thought others would too.

Dynamite’s viewership broke 900,000 this week for the first time since pre-pandemic and again finished top 5 in the coveted 18-49 demo, so it was a very good week for AEW.

It’s also worth noting that over the last few weeks, AEW and NXT combined are beating Raw’s ratings (and destroying it 18-49), so more fans are watching wrestling on Wednesdays than Mondays now.

The segment was great. I just watched it on DVR. The Global Warming promo by OC was priceless! That's the first time I ever heard him talk. Jericho and OC are probably my favorite characters in the business right now. It's nice too see them in a program in a good wrestling company, unlike the shitty WWE.

Bryan Alvarez is reporting that Sammy Guevara got some heat for splitting open Matt Hardy on Dynamite. Sammy carelessly threw an open chair at Hardy’s face and one of the legs split him open, requiring 13 stitches and a concussion protocol test. Sammy was supposed to use a folded up chair. Hardy supposedly forgave Sammy immediately, but Alvarez said that an AEW official took Sammy aside privately and read him the riot act for being sloppy. Sammy has just returned from a suspension for the Sasha Banks rape comments and now this, so there is some concern in AEW that Sammy is very immature and a liability.  Conversely, everyone was impressed at how great Hardy was, brushing off the accident and turning it into a Twitter angle to further the feud.  He has worked very well with the younger talent and doesn't big-shot anyone.

They won't get rid of Guevara, Jericho loves the kid.
