Will Osprey is retweeting a lot of AEW's promotion for Dynamite. Hmmm

I know he's friends with the Elite guys so it may just be him lending a hand, but I would flip my lid if he shows up.

I’d mark out so hard, but he’s been talking so much lately about how he just decided to move to Japan and make NJPW his home. Unless the promotions have cut a deal...

Or maybe he’s going the Mox route.

I considered it but seemed too long a trip to me.

What did y’all think?

It was so fucking good (mostly) to hear JR and Tony Schiavone calling wrestling on tnt again.

It's a strong start. There's some rust on Tony and JR but they had a good bond that made me enjoy hearing from both of them. I'm going to watch it weekly, definitely.

I wasn't a big fan of
Swager
back in the day but I'll give him a shot. Im also hoping for a War games-esqe showdown between The Elite and Team Jericho.

I was happy to see him, and I'm excited to see what they do with him as a serious wrestler with more MMA influence and not as a goofball.

That's why I'm giving him a chance. I know he's been very successful in Bellator and he was always solid in the ring but Vince made him look like an idiot (not surprising). He looked like a towering monster in his debut, which is a good start.

I enjoyed him in LU so I'm excited to see him. When Mox and Omega fought away, I expected the Bucks to bring out a friend as a replacement partner so when that didn't happen, I didn't expect anyone at the end so it was a nice holy shit moment.

JR and Tony were fun to hear and were ok for the most part. They repeated each other a few times but that'll iron itself out after a few weeks.

The PIP was tremendous and really set them apart right away.

I watched the debut episode twice. I honestly really thought it was a great show. There’s a lot of growing to do, but I think this was a solid start. We saw a lot of the big names, got a feel for their personalities, got some storyline progress, and some great wrestling!

Jericho's promo introducing the Inner Circle was awesome. Another hot end to the show. So we're going to end up with a WarGames match eventually but it'll be called the Bunkhouse Stampede.

I have to admit I'm shocked how fast Orange Cassidy has become over with the reaction he gets just sitting at ringside.

MJF is going to have Rock level boos when he finally becomes a heel and turns. The longer they wait, the better and hotter it will be.

I fell asleep during Moxley/Spears. I'll have to rewatch that match and the main to get a better opinion on the show. I liked what I saw but NWA still won the week for me so far.

I love love loved Chris Jericho’s promo. Especially the bit about we the people being dead and buried and bad/stupid creative. I popped big.

Yes, that promo was one of the best I've seen in years. You couldn't have asked for a better way to introduce a new major stable. The entire show reminds me of Monday Nitro but with better wrestling from the bottom to the top of the card and with more logical booking. I said it elsewhere and I'll say it here, this is everything I want out of a wrestling show in 2019 (NWA Power being everything I want out of a show in 1985-and that is high praise).

Yeah dude. All I want out of wrestling is logical stories, good wrestling and solid promos. AEW has provided all of that this far.
