MJF reminds me more of Gino Hernandez. Which is still great since he would have been a top all time promo guy if he lived. Roddy was on another level.

Yes there are similarities with Gino too, especially gimmick wise. MJF has said he's a fan of Roddys so I'm assuming he's one of the main guys he has studied. So really he's an amalgam of Hot Rod & Gino, I see a bit of Rock in him too with how natural he is on the mic.

If AEW can maximise his potential they have a big star on their hands. If the angle with Cody really gets him over (and in theory it definitely should) then by this time next year MJF will be a bonafide main eventer. He also could be someone who could draw in the mainstream audience if they have him appear on other shows. But I'd give him a year or two to really get his gimmick solidified so he's even quicker with the comebacks and he can verbally spar with say Chuck on Inside the NBA.

I would give him a Pipers Pit type segment so he has a presence on the show each week and it allows him to develop his persona further and he's one of the main focal points of the show. I think it's fair to say that he could be one of the next real top guys in the business. I think AEW know what they have with MJF which is why Codys mentoring him and he's transitioning to the top of the card already.

That Omega/Evans match was absolutely choice. Jack Evans sold those v-triggers like death. My favorite match of his.

Show picked up with Kenny and Pac, but was still the worst episode.

Meanwhile Joey Janela was in GCW tonight

This should be on TV. This was better than Jericho's dad talking about hockey.

Yea I thought it was a fun watch. If they incorporated the best parts of this and the better BTE episodes to TV it would add a lot more variety & some backstory to the show in regards to character developmental & storylines. They don't need to put out 4/5 star matches every show, the key is really to just make it entertaining.

Nick doing the Merch Freak gimmick is hilarious but I don't know how it would translate on live TV. So certain things work better in the BTE universe so to speak. I do think the Inner Circle need their own YouTube channel, or maybe they could turn up regularly on Sammys channel.

LAX (I refuse to call them Proud & Powerful) have so much untapped potential. They are incredibly charismatic and have good comedic timing. They need to be on TV more.

Ortiz is fucking money. He's a young Eddie Guerrero.

I'll spoiler this just in case
Spoiler
Show
Martys ROH deal reportedly ended Nov 30th but he's working Final Battle for ROH. If he is headed to AEW (which is believed to happen) I'd imagine they'd hold on til the January 1st show and debut him there. Logically that makes most sense too since AEW was announced the day last year

There's been rumors The Butcher & The Blade will be his partners. But that's probably speculation just because they look like they'd be in a stable with him.

That should have been on TV. I think in the case of AEW they do need extra TV time to include things like this as not every viewer is fully conversant with what goes on with BTE, AEW Dark, Twitter videos etc.
