AEW reminds me exactly of Nitro but in no way feels indy to me. Last week when Schiavone picked up Cody at the airport and they were driving in the limo to the arena, that was 100% WCW.

Should do a weekly pretaped segment/profile/interview of a wrestler in a realistic fashion. Kind of like the nfl Sunday pregame shows.


There is a weekly interview/profile on AEW Dark.
That needs to be on their main show.  I don’t even know where AEW Dark airs.  So the casual viewer has no clue.  They need to focus on building a company using one show.

It is the talent that seems Indy. I know wrestling that I like is lost and gone forever, but all these skinny flip floppers are just meh.
After watching Power and these I really wish Aldis, James Storm and a couple of those guys were on this show.  Not that I agree with Cornette on everything but some guys that seem like grown damn men fake fighting.  Some of these guys are just not believable from a fighting perspective.  I will say this - That kid with Jericho has a lot of talent and can be a star.  He looks 15 but he has a heel arrogance vibe like a street punk Tully Blanchard.  Refine him a little and he can be something.  Some of these other guys are just playing wrestler.  That is the vibe I get.  
But please don’t mistake me, I have actually enjoyed their show, which is more than i can say for any WWE show in the last 20 years save for the CM Punk days. where I liked his stuff.

Agreed.  AEW Dark seemed like an "extra" just to show dark matches, but is now being presented as an important secondary show with better matches than what airs on TNT sometimes.  Sorry, but no.  I'm not 15 and I don't have time for all this shit.  I'm not searching out YouTube videos.  I know they're catering to their audience and more kids watch YouTube than TV these days, but I'm not there yet and have enough on my plate.  The important character-building stuff should absolutely on on TV.  But I know I sound as ancient as Cornette when I shake my fist at stuff like this, it won't do any good.

Really enjoyed this weeks episode of Powerrrrrrrr; if they run an episode like this every couple of weeks than I can easily sit thru a few weeks of jobber only matches. They really packed this episode full of content, best one so far in my opinion.

I just came here to write that it was a MUCH better episode than the last couple.  They pretended they were going off the air after the main event at around the 45 minute mark, then added the extra match to go 57 minutes or so.  That was a nice unexpected touch, and they can do whatever they want as far as time since they're not on real TV.  I still don't get The Dawsons at all as a pushed tag team since they definitely come across as a couple of 1980s jobbers from Continental or something, but whatever.  Cabana vs. Storm was a nice decent match.

Not a fan of the Dawson’s either, they look like the love children of Hack Meyers and the batten twins.

Batten Twins was definitely the reference I was searching for with the Continental comment!  Couldn't think of their names.

Good episode and none of those daft adverts. Well, they had Aldis advertising a video game, and because the ad was in the bizarre style of the previous weeks, I have no idea if the video game is real or not.

There's no way that was real. I really wish they would stop doing that crap.  Especially to use their World champ in a campy '80s satire.  can you imagine the NWA using Flair that way?  But I suppose Cornette was fine with it.

This episode was much better than the last 2 and on par with episode 2. The Daltons push seems like a direct result of a very thin roster IMO. Kind of feel like for now,that the NWA is shoving them down our throats. It was cool to see Thunder Rosa/Kobra Moon from Lucha Underground.The Aaron Stevens thing isn't doing it for me. Overall a very good show.Hoping the momentum continues.

I’m pretty sure that game is real

Flair did commercials for Four Horsemen supplements, and Big Dusty did commercials for the cool crisp taste of Mella Yella and dropped a million dolla smile.  At least Dusty’s was a real commercial.

This is the problem. They started with Austin Idol's wrestling school, which could well be a real thing. Then Tony Falks's tire iron and waffle emporium, which is clearly not a real thing. Then they went to the absurd with a tonic that makes your hair invisible and a date rape drug. This week it's a video game, and how are we supposed to know of the video game is real or not? Even among us here at S&W, the intelligentsia wrestling fans, we can't agree if it's real or not.
