He's 33 and in his prime, having had perfectly good matches in ROH and NJPW for 2 years and 2 spectacular matches for AEW.  He has no reason to limit himself like he's Brock Lesnar at this point in his career, and it's unrealistic to think he will.

Is MJF under contract to MLW? AEW needs to sign him ASAP. I love this guy. He's a great old-school heel, not afraid to show ass.

I would think Cody and the rest of the core will be going full blast; wasn’t that kind of the point? Do their own thing so they can be who they want to be?

MJF 
The dipshit with his hands in his pockets
Luchasaurus 
The no legged guy doing a 619
Adam Page going over
Dustin vs. Cody
Mox debut
Jim Ross (except his tv entrance, see below)


Dislikes:
The camera switching shots a thousand times and missing spots, especially in the battle royal
They hype Jim Ross's emotional entrance ala Bill Goldberg, but as soon as Ross is fixin' to enter the curtain, they cut to a segment where the Rhodes' and their dog arrive.
Believe it or not, Alex Marvez is a shittier commentator than he is a "journalist."

imo, it is not just cody that has to worry about this when weekly tv comes around, but the entire roster.  but i imagine they will focus on much more than the core of VP's and hangman page at the point of tv.
i may be in the minority, but hangman page is the world champ is not overly exciting to me.  i like him fine as a midcard guy, but i am not sold on him as the main event?
lastly, if omega does not go against and beat moxley at the next ppv, i question leaving njpw at this point.  i get the booking to an extent, but him losing and then the bucks winning really surprised me.  i will say, it was a far more enjoyable ppv than MITB, and i am excited to see what NXT does tonight in response.

AEW has officially signed Shawn Spears, the WWE's Tye Dillinger.  Spears appeared at Double or Nothing so this was expected.

AEW All Out sold out in 15 minutes today.  PWInsider says there were as many as 60,000 people in the queue waiting for tickets.

It was also announced that Tony Khan would be on Steve Austin's podcast on Tuesday.

Explain why there are so many fans excited about this?

I do not watch anything except 5 mins of wwe about once every 2 or 3 months when flipping channels. It is awful.

So what is so great about AEW that i should seek it out, as a former fan, who the industry discarded about 20 years ago....

Because it is a legit new wrestling company and VKM isn't there to screw it up. I'm gonna at least give it a try for the first couple of years, if I don't die beforehand.

If ROH or NXT doesn’t interest you I can’t imagine AEW will draw you back in.

Exactly.  That is why I am not even going to go out of my way try and engage this new product.

Steve Austin returned to podcasting with today's episode of the Steve Austin Show, with AEW President Tony Khan.

The Texas Rattlesnake announces that the podcast format will be one "live" (new) episode on Tuesdays and a classic episode rebroadcast on Thursdays.

Moving on to the interview with Tony Khan, they discuss Double or Nothing, the performance of Dustin Rhodes and the importance of emotion, Tony's fandom of the Natural, details on Bret Hart appearing on the pay-per-view, going into the show doing a promotion with very little footage and more.

Khan discusses the importance of tag teams in AEW, revealing that not only will there be a Tag Team Tournament to crown the first-ever AEW male Tag Team Champions when they get weekly television in the fall on TNT, but also announced there will be Womens Tag Team Championships down the line.

Austin opens up about how the Stone Cold Podcast with the former Dean Ambrose, now Jon Moxley, really affected him. Austin discusses reconnecting with Moxley and saying everything is all good now.

Moxley has communicated with Austin and he will do a future episode of the Steve Austin Show.

Tony talks about where he sees their business model, saying that AEW will not have a traditional house show model. He states he doesn't want performers wearing themselves out six nights a week. Khan says he can't really do an off-season in the modern era, but you can give talent time to breathe. Tony says that they could do a few live events and supplement the lives of performers with international dates or other business opportunities from his media partners.

Steve Austin asks Khan If that model is sustainable and Khan believes that it is.

Stone Cold follows up by asking Tony about his father and their relationship. Tony goes into how his father is invested in AEW.

Khan talks about all the lessons he learned in production with Double or Nothing, Fyter and Fight for The Fallen.

Tony confirms that Fight for The Fallen, like Fytcr, will be free for on Bleacher Report Live in the US.

It's a really great interview.

It's a really great interview.
After listening to this podcast, I decided to go to the Network to listen to the Stone Cold Podcast with Dean Ambrose. I have to ask, did WWE edit out the parts that Austin disliked? Because I must say that I did not sence any serious hostility from either man. At one point, my wife came home from work and starting talking to me, but that was only for like a minute. 

Even the part where Austin started talking about Dean resting on his laurels as WWE champion - that was at the very end of the broadcast, despite Austin stating that the interview started off on the wrong foot from the beginning. It just didn't seem as bad as Austin made it out to be when he was talking to Tony Khan. So does anyone know if it was edited, I didn't see any noticeable jump cuts.
