The situation through the years with WWE and the 'independent contractors' has really baffled me.

Punk and MJF kicked off Dynamite with bar none the greatest promo segment in wrestling history. To think that WWE has started every show for 25 years with these long, boring 20-minute segments and the first time AEW does it they do it better than it’s ever been done.

JR throwing out this gem when agents stepped in to break up a backstage fight: “Where’s Tony Garea when you need him?”

Everyone’s on fire tonight.

AEW bought the rights to use footage that Colt Cabana owns to put together a really nice hype video for their match tonight.

I came here to post this in case nobody else had. Fucking incredible back and forth 20 minute promo segment. MJF is the best promo in the business right now, and if he keeps it up nobody else will even be close for a long time. They’re giving him the ball and he’s absolutely running with it.

Thanks for the link; I slept till 25 past the hour and thus I only missed this segment.   I'm glad I didn't find it halfway thru its live airing.

This is what happens when you don't tie people to scripts and are able to improvise to the audience. They're bringing the audience along rather than talking at them.

Jim Ross is taking a leave of absence due to his cancer treatments. From his Facebook:
Due to my skin cancer care totaling 22 radiation treatments starting Monday, I will hopefully return to the announce desk on December 29th in Jacksonville.Tony Khan supports me on this strategy which has been a blessing. My thanks for all your support.

Radio ads running on WFAN for AEW Live at Belmont Park in the new UBS arena. Let’s be honest here - in it’s history, NWA/WCW was able to put on shows at Nassau and the Meadowlands, paying top price for an arena that they pretty much only were going to fill 1/3 at best. AEW is now coming back to town after dual sellouts at Arthur Ashe, now doing Belmont (where I think the Islanders play). This should really bother WWE as it’s the first time ever that they can be challenged in their own backyard and their competitor isn’t paying some crazy vig to play NYC like NJPW had to just to play the Garden.

UBS is brand new and has a ton of hype. It’s also really conveniently located by Long Island standards. It’s really a Queens venue, barely across the border by literally 2 minutes or so. And AEW is about to sell it out and probably make it it’s NY home for years to come. It’s also really only a matter of time before they run MSG just to say they did it. WWE has almost abandoned MSG in favor of Barclays because it’s a little cheaper and lost their exclusivity there.

Someone found old tweets from Austin Gunn back in 2013 in which he used the works “niggas” on more than one occasion. Gunn has thrown himself at the mercy of the Twitter mob and says he was 17 at the time and has attended some of AEW’s sensitivity trainings. So now we wait to see if he survives.  He is 1/3 of The Gunn Club with father Billy and brother Colten.

The latest ticket sales numbers (from Nov 24) in the Long Island Dick Waving Contest are WWE for Nov 29: 4,849; AEW for Dec 8: 8,573. I don't know if AEW will sell out, since there are 11,641 total seats available. While AEW has put pretty much every seat on sale, WWE are only selling upper bowl seats on the side facing the camera.

It's not looking great for WWE in New York right now. Once upon a time, they could pretty much sell out four nights in a Row at the Barclays for TakOver Brooklyn, SummerSlam, Raw and SmackDown. They claimed a sell-out for Survivor Series of over 15,000. The sell-out claim was more-or-less legit, but they added over 2,000 to the attendance. Monday night's Raw had less that 5,500 in attendance. Anyone who had upper bowl tickets was moved to the lower bowl, as they tried to get as many people on camera as possible.

Not defending the guy, but it's some coincidence that this comes out at the exact same time that the Gunn club are getting their first real push on Dynamite. It's not the first time this has happened. People are going through Twitter histories, then holding onto this kind of stuff and putting it out there when it can do maximum damage. The company really should be searching through these histories themselves so they can get out ahead of these stories.

The graphic for their match on Wednesday was Billy and Colton with no mention of Austin. I think they will just keep him off TV for a while, but they won't fire him.

The party line from the trolls is that based on what Tony Khan said about Hulk Hogan not being welcome in AEW, they have to fire Gunn.  But there’s never any context to these old tweets and it took me a long time to even figure out he used the “a” version instead of the “er”. Was he calling a black person that out of anger like Hogan or was he posting some of his shitty white boy rap lyrics that he’s been known to do?  It’s likely the latter, and of course that doesn’t matter to the woke, but it’s an important distinction to the sane. I do, however, think he should be fired for attending sensitivity trainings.
