The roster is too ridiculous. I think a problem now is they have too many good people so some are going to be mad they aren't used enough and if WWE offers enough money might be tempted to jump. But then again Tony did appease Joey Janela when he started talking about not being happy in AEW by letting him wrestle in GCW again so he gets the best of both worlds. Maybe they can just let someone go be a big shot on Impact or in New Japan or AAA.

It is a stacked roster. Mainly the men's side but even the women's roster is getting big.

Shida hasn't wrestled on TV for 4 or 5 months, since losing the title, and she's still one of the more over women. Riho got a big pop at the PPV and she hasn't been on TV since the start of the year.

The roster is huge but it seems everyone plays their part and they can do outside things like wrestle elsewhere if they choose. Working with Impact, NJ, NWA etc hasbeen very smart decision and sending undertilised wrestlers to other companies benefits everyone. Being given that freedom I think is what is so appealing whereas in WWE they can't do anything without approval. Id like ROH to get involved too since they'd benefit hugely and it brings even more fresh names into the mix. Plus once everything gradually gets back to normality a big supershow would be cool like an All In 2.

I watched the whole PPV straight through. Loved it so much. That cage match gets a billion stars.

Tony is awesome.

Did I mention I loved that goddamn cage match from start to finish, including the entrances and what happened after?

It was probably Match Of The Year so far. A lot are saying maybe the best cage match ever. But that's hard to say because you have to think about 50 years of cage matches. Was it better than Shawn vs Taker Hell in a Cell or Flair vs Kerry or Tully vs Magnum or Nakano vs Hokuto or Angle vs Samoa Joe? Or if you want to count War Games there's been some amazing matches like 1991 or 1987. Maybe. But its top 5 for sure.

I rewatched Baker/Statlander and that was quite the good bit of professional wrestling too. I feel like Statlander was probably going to win before they were able to hire Ruby Soho but then they BOOKED ON THE FLY and decided to go with Ruby as the next challenger and I am fine with that. Statlander's time is coming. Methinks a good long run as a monster heel is needed for her

Also he can't get Final Countdown because Europe asked for $250,000 per usage. A million dollars a month. They're worse than Metallica.

Rancid let AEW use Ruby Soho for cheap because they are wrestling fans.

If you're wondering why Adam Cole signed with AEW so fast. At the meeting with Vince he was told they wanted him mainly as a manager for Keith Lee and that he was going to have to change his name because they didn't want people thinking he was related to Michael Cole.

No wonder HHH had a heart attack with that stupidity he has to deal with from Vince.

Well that's some stupid shit. It's time to send Vince to the same place his mother is at.

All the Queen does is cut some ribbons and make a few speeches. If that was all Vince was doing then it would be OK.
