True. 🤣 Did the WWE do that? Or was it TNA?

That was a TNA classic.

Now I want to see a new champion crowned in an AEW vs. NJPW King of the Mountain match. Minoru Suzuki is definitely going to the penalty box.

Tony Khan has attempted to explain why Moxley is #1 contender based on records. He tweeted that Moxley and Anthony Ogogo are the only 2 who have 7 or more singles matches and are undefeated in 2022, and obviously Moxley is ahead of Ogogo based on quality of opposition.  I honestly had no idea Ogogo was even still around after that Cody Rhodes feud but I guess they’re feeding jobbers to him on Dark. So if you’re looking for logic there is an at attempt at some, which I appreciate, but it also shows you that records really don’t work in wrestling because any way you slice it Moxley has been a tag wrestler lately and not part of the World title scene.

They even fucked this up. According to this, the winner if the match at Forbidden Door will face Punk when he is fit That just makes this a number one contender series. Surely the interim champion had to defend the title, and could lose it, before Punk returns.

Or don't even mention Ogogo (because he's nor really in the picture) and have Moxley wrestle Page, who was the champion for the last 8 months or so?

This is nearly making me stop watching the show, it's so fucking stupid.

Hiroshi Tanahashi gave an interview to Tokyo Sports expressing his disappointment over not being able to wrestle Punk at Forbidden Door and challenged him to a match at Wrestle Kingdom to make up for it. Whether this is actually a possibility or just something Tanahashi ad-libbed remains to be seen, but that would be huge for NJPW.

Why is having an interim champion a thing? If he cant defend the belt strip him and have him “win” it back when he can return.

The 6/8 edition of Dynamite opens with the 21 Man Casino Royale battle royal for the chance to face Jon Moxley later tonight.    Very random order of entry, including one shot clock countdown that led to zero entries at that point because there were a few eliminations that hadn't happened yet.    Eddie Kingston and Daniel Garcia fought on the apron and got knocked off within a few seconds of each other but they seemed to have only gone through the ropes.   They both left without incident, though.   In the end Kyle O'Reilly eliminated Wheeler Yuta for the spot vs. Moxley.

Last night's show will likely be very divisive. The wrestling was absolutely top notch and the booking was fine, but probably won't please all the armchair boomers who could have done much better. If you are a champion for the mythical casual fan, then I'm sure you hated it because no one knows who Dave Finlay or Will Ospreay are unless they watch New Japn. If Jim rates this show any higher than dogshite, I'll be shocked.

They do need to get more people more promo practice though. They should be doing this lot more on the YouTube shows. I think Tent might have peed himself in the ring by himself last night. The very top guys didn't become good at talking by accident, and for a lot of the AEW guys it seems like something they aren't comfortable with and don't want to do. Get some acting lessons and go to improv classes. No excuse for Marina Shafir to be so wooden when she only had three words to deliver.

I really don't like over-analysing AEW. I watch every show and I enjoy them all. No era of wrestling could get universal pass marks from the current fan base.

Jon Moxley needs to do the best work of his career right now, though, with Omega, Punk and Danielson all on the injured list.

No one watching that show shuld need Will Ospreay explained to them.  But Aussie Open is another story.  I've heard of them, but them jumping people in the ring with no explanation even made me go, "Who the fuck are these guys?"  The fans always seem to pop though, even when Cornette claimed no one has any idea who Danhausen is and 15,000 people were chanting his name.

Just watched the show (skipped the women's match). 
Without going into detail now I agree with you that the wrestling very good. I disagree about most of the booking, I think the booking is all over the place most of the time and the shows are often  really disjointed or tonally going crazy or something. I'm not sure how to describe it now. 
As for the not knowing who Ospreay and so on are: I've watched every episode of Dynamite and Rampage that's aired for about a year now. So I'm an AEW fan. I have heard of Ospreay and know he's a big deal. They've established that they are working with New Japan, and have a big show coming up. They did a reasonable job with a few lines on Finlay. But they had two guys interfere in the tag match a few weeks ago (and botch the living shit out of it), they reference that tonight (that they were Ospreay's 'bitches') then Ospreay comes out and then 3 other different Ospreay guys come out and attack. 
I think that's too much to assume everyone knows who all these people are. I'm sure a lot (nearly all?) of those in the arena do know. But assuming the TV audience does, and trying to grow a TV audience assuming everyone knows every wrestler in the world, seems crazy to me.
Agree with you on the promos, and I don't like most of these wwe style backstage skits, that's not helping promos, it's teaching people to 'act' and most of them are bad at it. 
Anyway, I won't say the show was dogshit, the matches were pretty much all good to very good. The booking was OK to bad, in my eyes.

I think Tony Khan had pretty much said that everyone is happy with their numbers, and they will keep booking for the hardcore fans rather than going for the mythical casual fan and risk losing their core audience.
