Glad for Brit. She's to the women's division what HHH was to the WWE back in the day - minus the shitty attitude, ego, sketchy promo abilities, sledgehammer, and Stephanie McMahon, but with humility, actually being as over as she needs to be, a great attitude, and a gimmick that doesn't involve using a giant metal penis whenever she wants.

Tony Khan made a response to Paul Levesque saying that all the best women talent was either in WWE or wanted to be in WWE. “Everybody is building their own roster. They’re going to have good feelings about the people they work with. I don’t think there’s anything wrong with saying you think you have the best show or the best company. I think where people got offended yesterday is when he said ‘everybody wants to work there.’ That was like, people are confusing the two things. If you want to say like ‘hey, I think my show is the best. I think my product is the best’, there’s nothing wrong with that. Like you should feel that way. That’s good. But when you say it like ‘anybody of any value wants to work here’, that’s not true. It’s crazy. There’s plenty of people who work in AEW that have no interest in working there.” Britt Baker responded by posting a photo of her and Thunder Rosa. Dustin Rhodes, who trains a lot of the women, probably had the best response of all, writing, “Couple days late, let me weigh in. AEW women’s division has grown passionately because of the team. You (Levesque) are not hands on like I am teaching and coaching them to greatness You just have money, where I have passion. Passion wins every time.” He signed it Dustin “Hands not tied"

I caught most of AEW tonight as my gaming group and I did some D&D at Applebees. Kris Statlander returned and impressed the shit out of me and that Jungle Boy/Omega main event was the BEES' KNEES and people were looking into the camera giving actual wrestling promos and not high school theater WWE bullshit and everyone was having great wrestling matches and it made me a happy wrestling fan.

That main event, holy FUCK.

This is how you hype a match. It took 3 seconds to tell them "just start talking shit when we turn the camera on", not 58 writers.

Sixty writers, 20 or so agents, and in four years the WEE WEE haven't been able to hype a match nearly as well as this. Maybe even longer. That was beautifully done and I'll be watching Dynamite.

She dislocated her kneecap. I think she might have just landed awkwardly on it.

Meltzer was hinting something big is going to happen on the Dynamite from Arthur Ashe Stadium.

Could it be

But now the crowd has to chant "Affirmative"

That would be cool. Wouldn't be surprised if he ends up in NXT though.
