People need to cut AEW a break. They're still brand new, working out the kinks. They're showing signs of trying and I think they'll get there.

Good signing for AEW. If they give him the right push I think they have a guy with a lot of upside who can be their Goldberg. Brian has had some injuries in the past but if he can keep those to a minimum I think he'll be in the main event picture.

If Cage is half as intense in AEW as he was in Lucha Underground, they have themselves a strong main-eventer.

Q: Forbidden portal, door, one of those two.


A: The forbidden door. It may be forbidden, but clearly the door is opening and closing and opening and closing. It’s public knowledge that some guys here, myself included, have exemptions to work New Japan Pro-Wrestling. But I know that New Japan Pro-Wrestling’s focus is New Japan and AEW’s focus is AEW.

So more likely what a partnership would look like is perhaps some sharing of talent, some shared creative, but we’re not going to do a Super Clash III where (Kerry) Von Erich and (Jerry) Lawler are fighting over the title (in 1988). Sorry, that’s a real specific angle I brought up. I’m always hesitant to combine banners versus just respecting each other’s banners. But I like how it’s referred to as the forbidden door. I don’t really think it’s forbidden at all.

Like I said, many people have the exemption to work there. They put on a great Wrestle Kingdom. They have some amazing talent, particularly Will Ospreay. He’s a top-five wrestler in the world right now. So, we’ll see where that goes. I know everyone pretty much feels the same about it.

Q: So you see it as, if anything did happen, it would be one person here or there coming across?

A: I think it’s something in the next year that we will hopefully all explore. We’ll explore on our end, they’ll explore on their end and we’ll see if it works.

Some more details from F4W/WO website
Our Dave Meltzer is reporting the deal is for four years and $175 million, just under $45 million per year, and includes TNT having an option for 2024 at a significantly increased price. The deal will make the company profitable in 2020 and beyond.

It would be cool if the second show comes on at 6:05 Saturday on TBS.

Tazz signed with AEW. I assume to do color on AEW Dark now that it's a real show.

When Baron Corbin draws as well as Cody and Kenny Omega or even half as well as Jericho, I'll care about his opinion.

From the new Observer
Scurll had been the first choice to be the leader of the Dark Order and AEW for the 12/18 show in Corpus Christi with the heavily criticized beatdown, there was an idea for the show to end with the Scurll reveal, until ROH made Scurll such a great offer to stay

I'm assuming The Butcher, The Bunny & The Blade were going to be part of a new Villian Enterprises too. The new Dark Order leader is rumoured to be

Raven, but he could be a "place holder" til Broken Matt comes in as he's another name I've heard as the D.O. leader
