J.D. Drake has everything but a look.  In the '70s he'd be a star.  His EVOLVE matches were the best in the company, then WWE bought EVOLVE and signed almost everyone but him (which didn't matter much because they released almost all of them within a year anyway).  Then even AEW brought him in as a jobber and he hasn't been able to get any traction.  But he's fantastic.  With Austin Theory in such a high profile match this past weekend, it's worth noting that J.D. Drake carried him to the best matches of his career so far, as they basically did the Flair-Dusty feud over again with Theory being the slick, rich ladies' man and Drake being the fat, blue collar slob.

Leyla Hirsch was injured tonight taping a Dark match. The match had to be stopped and it appears serious.  It’s a knee or leg issue.

Max Caster's rap on Samoa Joe:

"Tony, why'd we give this guy a chance?
When we beat them in the ratings, he was their champ"

Joe promptly squashed him.

FTR v Bucks was fantastic; so glad to see the Bucks lose.

I DVR Dynamite, but this is the first one I've watched in God knows how long. So I'm at the part where Wardlow arrives and costs Spears a victory. I'm not fully caught up on the storylines.So is Wardlow on suspension or banned from the arena?


Why all the resistance from the security?


Everyone else can do run ins with no resistance, why not Wardlow?

The story is that MJF personally paid Wardlow and not AEW.  Now that Wardlow has turned on MJF, he's paying security to try to keep him away.

Nice touch to get Bobby Cruise to do the ring announcing for the main event with the ROH Tag titles on the line. I've always liked him.

That Hardys match was rough. They really need to rethink how to use these guys. They can't be doing meaningless table matches at this point in their careers.

I don't know how long Jeff signed for, but they need to plan a meaningful last run for them, and make sure it's the last.  It should definitely involve few actual matches until they can have a big final blow-off in a car crash TLC match or something, and then one or both need to retire.  Matt can probably hang around to do other things, but Jeff will need to go home after retirement.  That will be a problem for him as things don't go well when he has too much time on his hands, but they don't go that well otherwise either.  But they are quickly burning out what they can do with the Hardys this go-around and it's only been a few weeks.  I hope they have one of their long-term booking plans in place, but so far it doesn't seem like it.

Random MJF tweet from last night which is just fantastic:

“This Boston crowd smells like old coffee beans and Racism“

They booked Wheeler Yuta perfectly last night against Moxley and got him over in about 4 weeks.

Without accurately hearing the particulars of what was said in the ring post-match, the facials on Moxley were better than any of his physical offense could have helped tell this story.  He was supposed to be the toughest nut to crack, and his visual amazement as time went on did a lot to showcase another side to his own rough-edged countenance.  
And right now, we didn't need to hear every comment from the Combat Club on the mic, aside from what the cameraman's unit could pick up.    Some people might criticize it as bad production values, when it's actually a creative choice that is so refreshing.  The announcers can then speculate and react in a way that speaks to the questions the viewing audience might have.

They got him a level where he can be a credible opponent for a main eventer, and a decent mid-card champion. Now he really needs to go to promo school to break through to the next level. He has the perfect people around him to learn from. Especially Bryanson, who was not a good promo when he broke through as an ROH main eventer, but got himself to the point that when he signed for WWE, he was good, and now he's one of the best.

Hook will wrestle his first indy date ever on May 14 at Create-A-Pro on Long Island, the company run by former WWE agent Pat Buck. No opponent announced yet.

Aubrey Edwards and Alex Abrahantes (sub for Tony Schiavone) sit down for the latest AEW Unleashed podcast with William Regal.    Unlike the short attention span promos on network TV, Regal gets to speak at length on numerous topics from his lizard collection, British stars of his youth, Blackpool Combat Club and more.
