Rampage is starting now at a special time this week.   Despite their best efforts to mention it numerous times, only seeing this thread reminded me and I'd have been irritated tonight that I can't retain basic info anymore.   Starting with Ruby Soho/Toni Storm vs. Jamie Hayter/Dr. Britt Baker.

I’m out and completely forgot, so we’ll see how smart my DVR is.

Scorpio Sky did a pretty good in-ring promo accepting Frankie Kazarian's challenge. Scorp is perfect in balancing his "Fighting champion" mode which could go babyface, or rallying MOTY and American Top Team as he remains heel.   I wonder if the Paige Van Zant aspect of the angle has fallen apart, calling for Ethan Page to welch on the promise to have the mixed tag.

I think Sammy is injured.

He's been okay in Impact. He's good enough to be squashed by Wardlow in five minutes. It makes sense bringing him in, since he has some name value, and after beating Lance Archer, the only person on the AEW roster that could do the same job is Keith Lee, and that would be a bad booking idea. He's not going to get a push, he's probably not even going to talk.

The worst part about him in Impact is his name, which is so un-monter-like that it's hard to take him seriously as a near-7-footer.  I keep thinking of emo music every time I hear him. 

But he's not the guy AEW should be bringing in.  Maybe the moment has passed, but Enzo right before he was fired was as interesting as anyone in WWE in 20 years, and I'd love to see him as a manager for 5 guys in AEW who have no direction and no personality.  Him on the mic with Kingston, Jericho, MJF, and others in faction warfare would be gold. 

There is an obvious AEW connection that I forgot about. Lexy Nair, who has been doing YouTube work for AEW since the beginning and recently became a regular backstage interviewer on Dynamite and Rampage, has been dating W. Morrissey for the past year. Lexy Nair is DDP's (ex-)step-daughter from his second marriage.

Huge dueling chants of "We Want Enzo!" "No We Don't" during the Morrissey-Wardlow match, which was quite good for a big man match.  Wardlow is thick but not tall so it was a good visual to see him throw around someone so much bigger in Morrissey.  The match served its purpose and I was happy for Morrissey that he got to wrestle in front of 15,000 fans again.  Impact is putting out a very solid product but it often occurs in a vacuum and you wonder if anyone is watching.  For Wardlow, he has gotten insanely over and the presentation with him coming out to no music and handcuffed surrounded by security has really been great.  He's getting the "Goldberg" chants now, no piping in necessary.

Well that served it’s purpose for Morrissey. Reports that WWE were very impressed by his look and work on Dynamite after he completely dropped off their radar in Impact. There are inquiries about his contract status and the feeling is that he looked clean and healthy and they might want him back.

Both tournaments have a joker. Mystery opponents.

These TikTok shorts might get repetetive to some but it's nice to see this Abbadon get some pub even if it's in someone else's vehicle.

Is she battling Hayter and Skye Blue for the Queen AEW PAWG title?

Let me edit that comment before Tony Khan sees this and he has  another reason to get another belt on his program

Last night.

It's Wednesday, and you know what that means. (Dynamite)

They didn't make him out to be anything special, but they did the same with Rohit Raju. He (Rohit) was brought in like any other other enhancement talent, but over the weeks he's been getting some promo time and he won his first match last night. I don't see anything special in Jake Something that should make AEW interested in him.

Rohit Raju really won me over during his Impact run and I think he has a lot of talent.  I didn't even know he was in AEW.  I haven't watched Dark in months.

He's a good promo, and if they want to do something to attract an Indian audience, he could be a good person to have, although he's much better as a chicken-shit heel than a face.

Dark is worth watching just for the commentary with Taz and Excalibur. Dark Elevation has Paul Wight and Mark Henry on commentary without Tony or Excalibur now, but it's not as bad as it sounds, and Mark Henry has improved a lot very quickly. I don't see any difference between the two shows though, except that Dark Elevation has the better crowd since it's recorded before Dynamite and not at Universal Studios. 95% of matches are squashes. If a match looks good on paper, though, it almost always is. I'll always put a link to anything that's worth going out of your way to watch.

There were a load of guys from New Japan Strong on last night's show (Kevin Knight & DKC wrestled) continuing the feud between QT Marshall & The Factory and the lower tier New Japan Strong guys. They taped a 10-man tag (with the New Japan team being Alex Coughlin, Clark Connors, Karl Fredericks, Kevin Knight & Yuya Uemura) which I think will be on next week's show.

I'm just hear to point out the fan in the front row tonight wearing the "Playboy" Gary Hart T-shirt. You'd never see that at a WWE show.
