Wow what a shock


This feels weird like really not much hype

If your entire brand is that you're not your competition your just gonna end up like sega


>"thank you young bucks"

<they haven't even done anything yet



>It's just some no name chinks


So double or nothing is in may in las vegas? That's pretty close, hope they can get enough talent in that time to run a decent show




When are they getting to all the good stuff



No fucking clue

Apparently that chink promotion is run by CIMA






This really is the new wcw

So the feuds going in are PAC vs Hangman, And MJF vs Joey Janela

I'd again like to repeat my thanks to certain individuals who all managed to pin these guys on January 4th.



Hey taguchifag fuck off loser, Sick of you sucking off that old washed up fuck tanahashi. He's sucked in every main event I've seen him in and him and jay white aren't gonna draw shit. AEW and NJPW are gonna eat each other alive and indie wrestling will die just as soon as it was getting good.



k have fun with the virtue signaling elitefags



also lol get some better fucking taste dude. You'd probably support bitchy Shawn Michaels over best canuck Bret Hart.


File: 1dcf1fe2dd5f168⋯.jpg (37.31 KB, 640x480, 4:3, images.jpg)

Post yfw Jericho turns out to be an agent of Vince to sabotage the company like Hogan did for TNA.



Wouldn't bet against that.



Could you please elaborate, I don't know I could make it through a 1 hour Elite rally feat. American Football.



They have show where the proceeds go to "victims of gun violence". You can draw your own conclusions there.



You see, I was actually a little bit interested when I heard the "equal wrestle pay" thing, because I was wondering whether it meant that pay was by billing as opposed to contract, or whether it was true pay equality, not just the male and female talent, but the second match of the night paying equal to main event. I get the feeling it will turn into "hurr durr our main 3 female stars get paid the same as our main 3 male stars" and the card just ends up retarded "jobs for the boys" pay.

At least billing pay makes sense from a consistency perspective, damnit.



That equal pay shit reeks of WCW tactics if you can recall.


Equal pay sounds like a horrible idea for a promotion. People are gonna get around it with "producer" credits in the company but nobody wants to see the main guy (jericho/omega/ibushi) make as much as the opener chase owens



Two things.

1) Chase seems to be staying with BC and NJPW

2) You are definitely correct that they are going to do the dodgy that way (just look at Brandi being the CFO), but this will still be interesting to see how it pans out. Will Ryback go there since he used to cry about muh equal pay?



I don't want this to fail, it's just I keep getting war flashbacks to WCW with that equal pay shit. Like when Lanny Poffo basically got payed for doing nothing.



It seems like it'd be a good choice for Ryback and the company to have him in to be a name but i get the feeling that would open the door for other WWE failures to come in and have the show become WWE MAIN EVENT 2™

I doubt Ryback would be anal about equal pay if he was on top though.



Well it is Cody's ship, technically he counts as a WWE failure in his last couple of years with the company

I do agree though, Ryback didn't complain about the pay until he started sliding down the card.


Same, to be honest I'm getting a lot of late WCW /Dixie Carter era TNA vibes from this, and that has me worried.


I'm a huge supporter of the Bucks and Omega, and have even grown to like Cody… But I feel skeptical about all this. I mean parts of it look great on paper, anons bitch about equal pay (I honestly wonder what that even means? They can't seriously be thinking of paying nobodies the same as Omega), but shit like healthcare for wrestlers is fucking amazing. Still without a working deal with NJPW (and in fact it looks like NJPW may be considering AEW a rival possibly), a tiny roster, and little information I'm just not sure how it's all going to turn out.

Still, they've certainly got my attention and I'll hope for the best because good lord do I need a good alternative American wrestling show. This may also be the year I start watching MLW.



It sounds like NJPW is reconsidering working with AEW now that omega AND jericho are going there. Especially with them running that G1 show in dallas this year losing their two guys they built this entire western expansion would kill it before it ever got really started.



Tana underdelivers based on his hype. Him winning the g1 was stale, his matches with white last year were ass, and the only decent match he had in 2018 was with okada, who can drag a dead cat to a good match. He was alright in 2017 and before but he's gotten so much worse this past year I have literally 0 interest in seeing him wrestle in a main event. Fuck even nagata is better than him at this point but he isn't getting a title run anytime soon.



His match with Ibushi was a banger, and him and White redeemed themselves with the best match of a show in King of Pro Wrestling. He's not highflying and he's more technical now. He's grown to do that.



His match with white was nowhere near the best at kopw, it was legitimately awful, to be fair that was mostly due to white not having his wrestling match his character at all, and having the moveset and storytelling ability of a somehow blander cody. and him vs ibushi was alright but not great and significantly worse than their match last year, even if you put the match quality down to personal preference the overal night was completely ruined by the awful shibata spot at the end. considering they should be bitter rivals, having him come out and celebrate with tana felt forced, manipulative, and completely killed tana's push for me. It was a move made to get an emotional reaction from the crowd in that night, but in doing so completely killed years of storytelling and character building for shibata, just to help get tana that little bit more over. It sucked and it made his whole g1 win feel artificial. Even his guitar and flag waving at the end felt more like he was going through the motions rather than celebrating one of the biggest wins of his career.

I like his slower grappling based offense more than his high flying really, he's lost his storytelling ability though, the only match that really felt interesting this year was him vs okada, everything else just felt off and lacked a lot of emotion from his earlier wrestling. I don't have any matchups I want to see from him with the current roster especially as a main event. besides shibata but they've clearly killed that storyline since shibata has no return timetable I bet



idk I feel this entire year for him was pretty good. kopw was pretty trashy, the triple threat was a botch mess and I felt that White grew into his role. The Shibata shit can be shut down since they actually earned respect in a G1 match long ago and they're actually hanging out now. I felt the story in 13 was told really well. Guess you do prefer the faster paste shit maybe idk.

I was in attendance for KOPW, Tanahashi vs Jay White was easily the best match of the night, the crowd got into it more than any other match and the pop when Tana won was incredible. bolieve it or not, Jay White plus Gedo is the best heel in NJPW in years, he can really get under the skin of the fans. For G1 climax, I thought the finals vs Ibushi was great, one of my favourites of the year, pretty much everyone thought Ibushi would win but Tana won it in what some might say was an upset. As far as the Shibata thing:

>Kenny accused you of using Shibata as one of your ploys.

>Tanahashi: To be honest, even I was surprised when Shibata asked if I wanted his support at the G1 final.

<That wasn’t your intention all along?

>Tanahashi: Of course I knew that when I went out there with Shibata, that we’d get a huge reaction. But I didn’t use him to my benefit.


They patched things up and even tagged together years ago, it's kinda well known that they are friends now. Also I won't say Tana underdelivers on his hype, heck last year you could say he was less hyped than ever till winning G1 climax. Even after that most must have thought that Kenny would beat him, but then AEW was annouced and everyone shifted to saying Tana would win. Anyway, feels like you have a rather negative image about Tanahashi and Jay White, doubt that will really change henceforth but I guess that's just how you feel. want to ask, are you an Omega fan? Don't really mean anything bad by that but I want to know

What did he mean by this? Secret WWE Agent confirmed?




Unironically all me tbh



I literally said I don't prefer faster paced wrestling. I prefer wrestling with high emotion and good storytelling that's all.


I mostly don't like Jay white I was just being negative on tana to get a rise out of taguchifag who I don't like seeing suck his dick off constantly. He's a good wrestler but not great anymore imo, and I wanted to see exciting main events from NJPW again, which we haven't gotten since okada dropped the belt. None of the potential main events tanahashi can have are fresh or exciting to me, I don't mind watching tana okada or tana naito again but I've seen them a ton before and I don't think they're gonna be better with this version of tanahashi. I legit think Jay is trash though all his heat comes from gedo and interference spots, which is a crutch not a skill of the wrestler. He doesn't come off as a smarmy heel in the ring facially or offensively, it reminds me of how ambrose is in WWE now where he gets this massive character shift and nothing about his actual wrestling changes at all. He might be good at getting heat but I have no interest in watching the shows now because of it, it's kinda why I stopped remembering to make NJPW OPs and is also why I skipped WTL entirelly. I think it's mostly his suplexes they look like fucking ass and his dead pan selling makes everything feel fucking fake

I'm still gonna watch NJPW I guess I just don't know what for anymore, all the guys I like are either injured, leaving, or pushed down to the midcard. I think I just want okada as champ again at least he made title matches feel like special events.



> all the guys I like are either injured, leaving, or pushed down to the midcard

Kitamura, Hiromu, Shibata, Kushida, just to name a few

The Junior division didn't take that big of a blow compared to the Heavyweights but still, NJPW will have to either A) "Upgrade" some of the juniors into heavyweights, B) Graduate some Young Lions or C) Sign some outside guys Here I'm hoping for Pentagon Dark and Fenix



The Junior division is still really hurting for top talent though, the tag division is fine but unless shingo makes a run for the title, Taiji is kinda alone at the top right now. A kawato return would really help them right now actually



I see. I'll still disagree with Jay White but I can see how Gedo might be overshadowing him a bit. But recently every big heel in NJPW pretty much have been doing the same thing Jay and Gedo have been doing: Bullet Club kinda started the trend, AJ Styles, Kenny Omega till G1 climax 26 and LIJ Naito till he lost the IWGP Heavyweight title. All of them got heat from outside interferences Naito probably the only one to do it better like his long entrances, taking time to remove his suit and spitting at everyone. Jericho is the only solo heel and he does it well but tends to to use weapons too much. I still think Tanahashi can do good but by your expectations of wanting Okada tier great matches, I guess Tana has past his prime for that unless he has someone like Okada/Naito to play him off well as you say.

>potential main events for Tanahashi

Other than the typical Okada/Naito, I actually can't think of many great ones for Tana. Been a while since Ishii fought Tana, that coulf be good but I dont think it might happen. Suzuki could be a choice but even that is kinda old. Maybe Sanada/EVIL but I wasn't a huge fan of their previous clashes with Tana to put them in a main event spot. Jericho is the only big main event for Tana I can see right now. NJPW sure lost quite a lot of guys recently, some fresh faces would help. Tanahashi is still super popular in Japan so they cam make it work but I wonder about the overseas expansion, probably might face more foreign guys if they have title matches there frequently.


Only been a year for Kawato's excursion so he might take a while. At earliest i think maybe KOPW/Power Struggle like how Hiromu and Jay White returned. Jrs. are really lacking. Shingo might be the only real competition for Taiji. They've been weak in recent years but with Hiromu injured, Kushida leaving and Ospreay in NEVER, they've been hurt even more. Wonder who would be in the BOSJ finals now, only shingo really I feel from the current crop. Hope they bring in one or two guys before that.



>I prefer wrestling with high emotion and good storytelling that's all.

I think Tanahashi can still accomplish that. I also don't know why you're getting so buttblasted by me, I was just amazed at his G1 Finals performance and the way he could go at his fucking age and being happy to see him at the top again. And to be fair, you have to admit we didn't see shit with main events when Omega was champ either.



Yeah we didn’t and it sucked. I doubt facing Cody twice was omega’s idea but even still him getting the win off Okada was a huge deal and I wanted whoever beat omega to be someone he could at least transfer that onto.


The difference between white and those other guys is all in the selling and facial expressions. When white goes for his interference it just feels formulaic and tired, how he’s doing in the match doesn’t influence when and how he interferes. I have given a ton of chances and an open mind to jay and he has sucked every time in ring. Maybe he just isn’t clicking with me but I don’t know how you can look at his soft shitty offense and deadpan selling and think anything good is going on there



I understand that a lot of Tanahashi main events seem old to you and that I was kinda annoying with me marking out for him, I'm just really happy my guy got one more reign even if he might not get 1 defense in. We're at least getting main events now instead of Cody filled trash or toned way down G1 matches.


I'm just really mad we didn't get Omega vs Yano where Yano actually tried his heart out just to win the title.



Tana as champion for one last reign is honestly a good story, I just don't think right now is a good time for it with everyone leaving/injured. He'll wrestle good main events, they just aren't as exciting to me as the matchups for okada, omega, or naito.



Naito seriously deserves another reign, it baffles me how he hasn't gotten it yet and always being thrown into the IC title scene worries me that he may not get one or have it be a decently long reign. He'll turn 37 this year, moves good but I don't know how long they'll keep delaying it before it may be too late. Hope next year is the year at the latest.

On another note, apparently WWE offered Naito a contract but he immediately turned them down. WWE, or Triple H maybe really goes for anyone. Surprisingly, Tanahashi has said that WWE has never contacted him. If they went for Nakamura, Omega, Naito, figured they might've at least tried to contact Tana too, I just really want to see Tana vs Cena**




To be fair, we've seen as much as we could with Okada as well, the next one to take the title off of Tana should be a Naito, he's the only main eventer besides maybe Suzuki that can be fresh for the main event scene, and I doubt either of them would drop the ball as hard as Omega did.


He should at least be the one to take it off of Tanahashi, so Okada wins the G1 and Naito can finally beat him. First things first though, is to fill the void Omega left, if he's leaving for good. As much as I feel White has evolved, I still feel is not quite there yet. Also, on the WWE stuff, I think they know full well that Tana and Okada are THE guys right now, and the fact that even though Tana has been killing it lately, he's still 42. We don't know how much longer he'd have.




Naito deserves the title more than anybody but hes gonna be forever in the IC title picture to try to bolster it as a co-main event title. He has more history with the IC at this point and i dont think chasing the HW belt would fit naito's character right now.



I heard that Cody, the bucks and Billy Gunn have creative control, is that true? Wonder how that'll turn out and if/when the case arises that they're abusing booking or whatever. Also Double or Nothing seems to be their next show with nothing else in between as of now, wonder what's the plan henceforth and then after Double or Nothing. Also about championships. inb4 Cody becomes their main champion and the bucks become tag champions. Or maybe they'll put themselves in the inaugural title match and lose to appear gracious

Who’s coming next?



I think goodish chance on kenta ( and probably the best pick out of the bunch). The ambrose thing is a work pretty sure.



KENTA should replace KUSHIDA in NJPW



Kenta's probably wants to be back to being a top dog so he's not going there if it's to do that.



From the looks of it, it's not a work.



Plus because of his 205 live demotion I totally forgot that he competed with heavyweights now in Japan.



>The ambrose thing is a work pretty sure.

I know it's wrestling but not everything is a work. That said I think it's too early to assume he's going All Elite, he very well may, but he may also just be taking some time off. Only time will tell.

I am not too interested in AEW since I'm not a fan of Cody and the Bucks but I could appreciate the effort they all were taking to make it happen; however, shit like this and other stuff sure makes me even less interested in it. Keep hearing about lame shit like this. I'm going to say it

>All Reddit Wrestling



Honestly the more I think about it, and I say this even as a fan of the Bucks and Omega, this really seems less like All Elite Wrestling and more like SoCal Wrestling, it seems to have a lot of the vibe and mindset of SoCal people in it which is a little progressive for most of the rest of the world. We'll have to see how it works out, I mean if their diversity hires can't wrestle then it's going to be a problem. By the way, there were people commenting on the twitter post like "I'm so glad this isn't a publicity stunt".



This sucks, Omega was the one elite dude that I wanted to stay, and he joins this stuff? lol



I think people didn't think it was a publicity stunt because they didn't bring up that he was a tranny. I didn't even realize it till someone posted it later he honestly just looks a shorter tamina so I didn't really think too much about it. This and that faggot at the beginning has me doubting this shit hardcore. At least lucha bros will be cool.


I wish AEW to succeed, because WWE really needs competition, a reason to move its lazy ass and get the product better. 2018 was a very boring prowrestling year to me, I mean as someone who only watched NXT/RAW/Smackdown.




You're doing it wrong then. NXT is the only real pro-wrestling show there to begin with. RAW/SD is just boring.


Really hope they don't mess up the NWA with their joke wrestling. Kind of wanted to see MJF in NWA already



As far as I know, NWA is still it's own thing and isn't really partnered with AEW yet. Cody vs Aldis at All In was a proper NWA match so even if they do partner up, Billy Corgan probably would make sure they don't fag shit up too much.

I don't even know where to start. It's cheap publicity, but I could see it working. In the short term, at least. The audience they're appealing to with this shit is the type to hop from trend to trend, so who knows how long they'll pay attention to it. I assume the hardcore followers are the type to accept it because they don't want to seem like a "bigot" or whatever. I'm curious if they'll get backlash if/when they take a faggoty storyline too far. nah they'll probably just be praised, fuck this gay world and its cucked masses

Hopefully Meltz gives it like 2 stars and faggots seethe



>Meltz giving 2 stars to his boi Kenny Omega

Now THAT would sure be the day



It's possible especially since he's surrounded by trash now.



>(((Dave Meltzer))) rating Omegay matches low

I was somewhat optimistic for AEW but after the virtue signalling and talking of donating to anti-gun organizations, I want them to crash and burn. Hopefully they last long enough to wake Vince up.


>Double or Nothing sells out 12,000 tickets in 4 mins

Big, though All In sold out in half an hour so expected something like this.



He's ripped into Kenny matches before when they get too stupid, retards had a shitfit.



can someone fill me in on what brandi's latest shitfit on twitter is about?



They probably should've done a bigger building. Third show is apparently planned to be at an even smaller arena than All In which is insane. People are gonna get pissed they can't get tickets, should go for the most seats possible while the events still feel special.



That's weird, heck they have the hype to sell out a stadium like MSG twice over, if ROH/NJPW could do it then AEW at this point sure could.



Virtue signalling and politicizing their promotion right away. They didn't even wait.

>Earlier this month at NJPW The New Beginning in Osaka, Kota Ibushi announced he would be staying exclusively with the promotion until 2021. Although he appeared regularly for NJPW over the last couple years, Ibushi was still very much a freelance wrestler, until now.

>In regards to his contract, AEW had obvious interest in the Japanese Superstar, but in an interview with ShuPro (translated by NJPW Announcer, Chris Charlton), Ibushi spoke about the factors that kept him out of AEW.

>"The second I went, that would be the end of my wrestling career, I thought," Ibushi began. "What I realized [talking to AEW] was I really don't care about money. … AEW said they just want me in their ring in some form. The ideal for them was for me to move to America and be there full-time. I turned them down just after Wrestle Kingdom. … If I went it would be the end of my career. There wouldn't be anywhere else to go after that. No step up, nothing left to do. That would be the last step to make, and after that things would just go down. Great money, but I want to keep developing."

>Getting back to NJPW, Ibushi noted he still feels the best place to change the world is in NJPW where his top three desired opponents, Jay White, Kazuchika Okada, and Shingo Takagi reside. Ibushi also said NJPW would be where he ends his wrestling career.

>"Kenny [Omega] wants to change the world with wrestling. I think to change the world with wrestling, New Japan is the best place to do that," Ibushi said. "That's where he and I differ. I can do all that here. [Of] all the places I've been, NJPW is the highest level. I really wanted to lay my cards out and shut down the 'What about Ibushi?' talk. Osaka was that chance. The Ibushi institute is on hold, I'm exclusive [to NJPW]. … This is the last decision I will make in my career. I'll end my wrestling career in NJPW."

Translated by NJPW announcer Chris Charlton. But one guy on twitter seemed upset with the translation, don't know how accurate it is but oh well.

Still tells us a lot. From this account basically AEW offered him a ton of money and he would have to remain in USA, none of which interests him. I guess they still are working things out and don't really have much of a long term plan for wrestlers now, or even a short term one and just want to sign guys up and think later I guess. Also I'd be amazed to see Ibushi end his career in NJPW. Can't wait to see Ibushi vs Shingo as well whenever that happens. Also has Ibushi ever faced Okada? Seems not Tiger Mask W doesn't count.



Shingo vs Ibushi sounds great. I hate that hes still relegated to hr heaby. I think Ibushi has had a g1 match against Okada but i could be wrong.

AEW just got more SJW. Hey, that rhymes!

they know autists are willing to spend more money than any other demographic. Expect Jericho mpreg stuff on deviantart soon.



>Providing noise cancelling headphones for those that get triggered over them

I mean, if you go to any largely attended event like this, let alone wrestling where shit is supposed to get loud and boisterous, it's all part of the show, why attend it to begin with. Also I thought tickets sold out rapidly, do they have extra and are they throwing in some more seats just for these special ed guys?

>catering to literal retards

Fucking kek. Don't forget the safety helmets, goggles, and padded onesies. How long until they sign a wrestler with downs or something? On the other hand, it's kind of funny seeing Steph get outdone in terms of virtue signalling marketing.


This is just a more well connected, more well funded GFW attempt

It's a good drawing but the text needs work


>WWE Hall of Famer Jim Ross, who recently signed with All Elite Wrestling, appeared on WFAN Radio in New York City earlier today and said AEW will have a weekly two-hour live TV show that premieres in October.

>JR did not reveal the timeslot or the name for the AEW TV show, and he refused to elaborate on what network will carry the program, but we will keep you updated. Ross did say the AEW TV show will air on a major network that we all have access to.

>Ross also said AEW is going for a more athletic presentation compared to what we see on TV from other promotions these days.

>"I think what they're shooting for is a more athletic presentation," JR revealed. "It will hopefully be less eye rolling than the sophomore drama class trying to convince you in a 10 minute promo of anything they're saying. It's too long. Our audience can't handle that."


2 hour long TV show huh and in October, quite a while to go there.

>Omega burned his bridges via Undertale for this shit

Fuck the Young Bucks.



Well I mean I want them to talk but at least have something to say about the human spirit instead of the weird shit they pump out of wwe just let people shoot.
