The bad news is she had to return to Japan so this will be her last match for a while. Hopefully she filmed a lot of BTE stuff.

No spoilers but people at the taping said Thunder Rosa vs Britt Baker was the best women's match AEW has done and the crowd gave it a standing ovation.

Shit, they killed it. I definitely didn't expect double juice in a women's match for a major promotion. And Rebel was great too.

MOTHERFUCKER that was good. The performance of a lifetime. Britt Baker's obviously taken her learnings from Jericho and others to heart and Thunder Rosa has seriously improved since her time with Lucha Underground. A brutal, violent, intense classic. My favorite match of 2021 so far. Three hundred trillion stars.

I honestly believe this did more for women's wrestling than Rousey vs Charlotte vs Becky main eventing Wrestlemania. That match wasn't good and two of them were out of the business a year later.

Wearing the red flannel was a nice touch.

She's proof of how bad WWE is. In a year coming in with little experience she became one of the best performers on the show because people actually worked with her and let her develop a character that works.

A year ago I said the Brit Baker as a psychotic dentist and less of a straight snarky heel would kick her to the stratosphere, and I was proven right. Her and Anna Jay are gonna have a program that draws a shitload of money and main events a PPV in a few years. Mark my words.

Tay Conti has also improved a lot (in ring) after being let go by WWE. Training at the PC probably isn't that great when you are there with a hundred other green rookies.

AEW has proven that there is a lot more to making someone a star than working on their goddamn choreographed dance ballet entrance. Why the fuck wouldn't you just jump someone while they're doing step five of their thirty move entrance dance?
