Did anything ever come of Janela vs. Spears after that episode where Janela had Tully Blanchard bound & gagged at the entrance ramp? Did something happen on Dark?
No and I don't expect that much more of Janela except on Dark. At the GCW show the other night, he announced that he's tired of internet fans not liking what he's doing with AEW and while he's staying there, he's returning to wrestling in GCW next month and will never leave again because those fans appreciate his crap.

Tired of internet fans? Aren't those the fans that got him where he is? Get off the internet, get a better diet and hit the gym.

Or he’s tired of hearing from them what Cornette says

It's heavily rumored that Brian Cage has signed or soon will be signing with AEW.
If they get Cage and Brodie Lee, then with Hager and Luchasauras they have the start of a legitimate heavyweight division, which they surely need, even if just for some diversity in the product if nothing else.
You know, yes. I hate to say it, but that is one thing lacking. Everyone looks small. I don’t need the Great Khali, but having five or six big guys would be good. Why hasn’t Hager wrestled yet anyway?

I heard they signed Cage officially. And announced it about an hour after he was on the Impact PPV. I know they aren’t at war with Impact, but that’s totally shots fired.

Bellator commitments? Maybe give Hager a squash before we finally get him vs Dustin. But I think he’s best used as a special attraction for time being. Still think the money match is Hager/Luchasaurus though.

Warner Media has renewed AEW Dynamite through 2023 and is launching a second show.

Can we go one week without doing the lights off/lights on gimmick, somebody coming out from underneath the ring or somebody dressed as somebody else?

Taz signed on as a commentator today full time. I wonder if he takes on the second show as the lead announcer.

Think this week may have been the best overall episode yet. Minus the Brandi stuff

The fact that they are using that botch to further the storyline is pretty cool of AEW. They could have just tried to sweep it under the rug and moved forward. This gives them a chance to put a new guy over now, I like it.

Sports Illustrated is reporting that AEW is in advanced negotiations to bring in Lance Archer. It really does seem like they are trying to fill the void of talented big guys in the company.

I’ve loved him in New Japan since the G1 last year. I’d love this!

Also I want to say I think the Hangman storyline is officially my favorite thing in AEW. I love the slow burn and logical booking.

I'm feeling more and more that it will be Omega and the Bucks turning heel.

I’m not up on my wrestling at all. I don’t know the difference between The Bullet Club and The Elite. Is the Elite a spin-off group? Is Hangman Page part of the group too? I don’t 100% grasp the storyline, but it appears to me Page and Omega don’t get along? What am I missing?

I'm catching up with this week's Dynamite and I gotta say I really like the look of it on the ship but standing room only just isn't the same. I'm up to MJF and I feel like we should have gotten a wide shot of the actual ship.

Britt Baker was so awkward on the mic that I dug it!

I didn't expect Jurassic Express to win that match but I feel like the thread between Jericho and Jungle Boy was definitely lost, at the very least Jungle Boy didn't shine enough.

I would never do picture-in-picture when MJF is out there.

We did get the wide shot of the boat during a commercial break though!

And w Britt, they had the reasoning and seeds for the turn planted but she kinda just went off the rails with cheap heat 101 and saying all she could think of in the moment.

Did we even get a Marko Stunt roll up attempt on Jericho? After them teasing it, should've had at least an attempt. Maybe I missed it.

Cornette's idea for MJF and Janela from last week's Dynamite is miles ahead better than what actually happened.

Hmm, I'm wondering if that video from the other day with Brandy visiting a therapist was a way to write off the Nightmare Collective storyline. At the very least it looks like a way to change things up some with it
as apparently Luther and Mel turned on Awesome Kong during the Dark tapings. I'm grateful for that as this group wastes Kong's talents.

Until
Kong convinces Statlander to team with her against them and then Kong turns on her and it was all a Horsemen/Sting Halloween Havoc ruse.
