Skye Blue has found her niche as the crazy bitch willing to bleed and get hardcore and do ridiculous shit.
Kris Statlander sure was there!
Julia Hart as the evil mastermind pulling out the win out of nowhere worked. Ending was a little rushed cuz I think the Copeland thing ran long.
Willow impressed the fuck out of me. Like holy shit why hasn't she blipped my radar before? She was just incredible here, bringing the intensity times a million!

I want more Skye Blue maiming herself for my entertainment please!

Will's been a great signing, as has Okada. Mercedes is a good addition too, despite the anti-AEW bias from some WWE fans.

With the AEW roster so stacked they could let some go on excursion to New Japan as losing Ospreay & Okada has impacted their main event picture.

Watched the Observer video on YouTube about the Dynamite ratings. They're never be the heights of the Monday Night Wars ratings wise anymore, even Rock isn't bringing in that many extra viewers. Just as long as WBD are happy with AEW that's all what matters. I Imagine though if they were consistently bringing in a million + each week the TV rights renewal fees would be higher.

Jay White is being wasted in the mid-card, where he could be a main eventer, like he was in New Japan. He doesn't need the Gunn's either, just put him with Juice. He's one guy I think could've done much better in WWE.

That's what they should've done with Brawl Out, show the footage and built an angle around it.

Tony shouldn't rise to the bait with this though & just ignore it. As it serves no real purpose they can't work an angle out of this. It just draws attention to Punk & WWE too.

Plus I Punk & WWE baiting TK & AEW at every opportunity just to troll them. That just weakens AEW in the fans eyes, so they should rise above the BS. Let them do their own thing & AEW do theirs.

Was thinking, after Montreal this kinda thing was the catalyst for Vince being an onscreen character.

Should Tony considering doing the same in AEW? I don't think a Vince 2.0 character would work, but maybe parts of it where he could turn up at the arena in a limo with the Bucks, go against Punk's friends in AEW (FTR/Danhausen/Joe/House of Black/Darby etc) & if done right I think it could be entertaining. More so in a Vince way, than like Bischoff or Dixie.

I think it could be similar to when fans used to get irate by the managers at ringside like Bobby, Corny, Paul E etc & liked to see the 'faces get revenge on them.

They need to take this negative & spin it into a positive.

Maybe. I don't know if Tony could pull it off or if the viewers would want to see him onscreen every week.

Vince was a commentator for decades before becoming Mr. McMahon and is a real life asshole, so it all came natural to him.
