I hate bringing up something Bubba Ray said, because it’s Bubba Ray obviously, but “the only thing people are going to remember is the finish.”

Just try and remember HIAC 2019 but excluding that dog shit finish. You can't. Try and remember the Mania with AJ vs Shinsuke without the Lowblow. You can't. The ending of a ppv is the face of the ppv. Sadly, so.

The finish is the climax of a match. It's what everything else builds up to. Why do you think no one re-watches Game of Thrones these days? A match is supposed to build up to its finish. Imagine if at the end of Rocky that instead of getting a big fight, Apollo got into a car crash and had to pull out and the movie just ended. How inspiring would the training montage be now?

Moreover, this was a stipulation completely designed around that moment. If they'd just made it a barbed wire rope match, the fact that they're gimmicked ropes might have made the more hardcore fans scoff a bit, but that's fine. The match wouldn't have this big clock looming overhead that everyone is getting more and more excited to see.

It'd be like having a First Blood match that ends because one guy went to pick up a chair and it had a screw jutting out that nicked his hand. Making promises sets expectations and if you're gonna botch it THAT hard, just don't do it at all.

That's true. It really sucks how the finish turned out cause had everything been executed perfectly that probably would have been one of the greatest moments in wrestling history. I applaud them for what they were visioning the ending to look like. It's sad thinking how this whole PPV was super fun and full of great matches, Kenny and Moxley had a brutal match and probably their best singles match in AEW, yet the finish is the only thing most people will remember about this PPV.

That ending was too damn good. Didn't know they got "Where's my mind?" as OC's new theme. It definitely goes well with beautiful endings like tonight.

Every match and segment on the show felt unique and special. One of my favorite episodes from Dynamite.

Pretty good show! The Blood and Guts match was awesome. Don't get why many are complaining about Jerichos fall off the cage. Better than him falling in a unsafe manner. I guess a different camera angle would have made the fall look more serious than what it was. Its whatever tho, I thought everything went well.

Next weeks show might be better. OC vs PAC is gonna be fun. Kind of hoping OC wins lol.

AEW expanding into Friday nights, will move to TBS in 2022​


As AEW continues to creep up on WWE, the wrestling company is expanding its reach in the ring. All Elite Wrestling, Tony Khan’s competitor to Vince McMahon’s wrestling company, will move from TNT to TBS next year, the network announced Wednesday.

Until then, the two-hour weekly “Dynamite” show will add a third hour on Fridays, “Rampage,” premiering at 10 p.m. on Aug. 13 on TNT.
WWE’s “SmackDown” currently runs from 8-10 p.m. on Fridays on Fox, giving the feuding companies yet another contest.

But Brett Weitz, general manager of TBS, TNT and truTV, said he doesn’t view AEW vs. WWE as an “us vs. them.”
“More wrestling is better for wrestling fans,” he told the Daily News during a press call Wednesday. TNT will also debut four new “supercard” specials annually; Weitz said the network is still working with Khan on crafting the specials."

Newest version of AEW's Women's Title. Noticeably larger, imo.

I like it, I remember at first I wasn't a fan of the shape when I saw the original but I am glad they kept the same theme to it.

Also last nights show was really good.
