Nothing to say. It wouldn’t have happened if Tony wasn’t okay with it. It’s not like Punk hid it under a sweatshirt all day and then sprung it on them on live TV. I could be wrong, but highly unlikely.

Jericho referencing peeing in Regal’s tea was great, but nothing else connected like it should have considering the promo talent in that segment. Just an off night for all.

I must have missed this but why was Wheeler Yuta missing last night? And he's not involved in the PPV match either? I know he won some ROH belt a while back but it was odd to have no mention of him.

As announced tonight, AEW will be sending Frankie Kazarian back to Impact to face Chris Sabin. To hype the match they showed clips of their match against each other at Slammiversary 2003.

Pity, I liked him. His match on Rampage was one of the better recent matches I've seen. But they clearly had no plans for him. I've seen very little of him before so I don't know if they are missing a trick (I assume they are not, they have a pretty stacked roster of guys already) but he does look good.

He's 44 and has been wrestling since 1998. A good veteran, but not someone AEW should be pushing. Was always good in the ring, but lacked the personality and promo skills to ever get out of the mid-card. He has literally wrestled everywhere. Good runs in TNA in the 2000s and ROH in the 2010s. He even had a cup of coffee in WWE in 2005, but I think he only wrestled on Velocity.

Yes, I'm reasonably familiar with his career timelime and I did see him long ago when I watched TNA. Before AEW I'd watched very little wrestling for probably about 15 years so I missed a lot of his career.


Not suggesting they push him but he could be a good guy to have around. But they already probably have too many people on contract so I get it. I didn't know about the promo skills but I sort of assumed if he was good on that front he would have been a bigger deal.

I saw one of his matches at a SD taping in Baltimore when he was signed by WWE.  It was a match taped for velocity and I was one of the few in my section who knew who kazarian was. I kept screaming for the future (Frankie “the future” kazarian) and I’m sure everyone around me kept thinking STFU!

The deal was that he racked up 3 or 4 wins in a row on Velocity and looked great, and then they asked him to cut his hair.  He refused and quit/was fired.  Then he cut his hair on his own shortly after.  In the grand scheme of things, it makes no difference at all as there's very little chance he would've done anything of note in WWE anyway, but he might have a little more money in the bank if he had stayed.

That was 100% a Stephanie decision, everybody liked Kazarian but she wanted him to cut his hair and he said no so she demanded it, still said no, and he was gone within that day.  I remember this well and there's probably even a thread on this board that talks about it.

Big Damo (Killian Dain) made his AEW debut in doing a quick job to Shawn Spears tonight on Rampage. I was so high on Dain that I wanted WWE to call him up and have him beat Lesnar a few years ago. I thought he could’ve been huge. It’s a shame he can’t get signed anywhere.
