I have also stopped watching seriously until they get their stuff together, how did anyone think that was a smart idea

Apparently none of the match participants knew it was Brock to win and up until mid way through the ppv Ali was told he was winning the match, even for Vince the idea to change that happened last weekend, he has no long term vision and it's so obvious if you watch the product week to week. It's close to insulting.

Agree with above comments, Brock matches and title reigns are boring, the money in the bank case is meant to be something fans love the tease of like even during the event with Bayleys save of Becky but now the next time we hear Brock music near Seth or Kofi it means lights out for a story being told and welcome back to no belt on that brand and stupid matches where Brock does suplex s or f5s and the only offence anyone gets on him is when he runs into the ring posts. All his matches are the same outside of one interesting angle with Goldberg but that was now over 2 years ago.

Great start to a company, last match felt a bit flat, but more than made up for it post match. 

Hope they continue to improve camera, felt it was more jumpy than wwe and missed a couple of key spots because of it.

Also this is personal thing, doubt they will do this, but please less blood, I know most fans love it, but I think it is very careless.

1. Completely agreed. Not only was the event itself great, but I heard that it had a pretty good buyrate, http://whatculture.com/wwe/aew-double-or-nothing-34-beats-200k-buys-34, so it was financially successful as well. The main event, while it was good, definitely could have been better. I know Chris Jericho and Kenny Omega can both do much better, but yeah Dean Ambrose Jon Moxley with the surprise appearance was huge!

2) I think the camera will come with time. This is the first event they've ever run so there are going to be shaky details at some aspects, they just need to run more consistently and I think it won't be a problem for long.

3) As for the blood, I'll say that too much blood is definitely careless. If they're not careful, they run the risk of becoming a clone of ECW and we know how they ended up. Too much of it will eventually turn fans away and put all of their talent at dangerous risk for no meaningful reason. However, I do believe there is a place for blood/blading in the industry, but only when it means something and when the match, stipulation, and story call for it. When those aspects line up, blood can take a great match or a great angle and just make it 10x better. The match between Cody and Dustin meant something. Brothers facing each other, both the sons of an industry icon and legend who is no longer with us, in what was potentially the older one's' last match. And the post match angle was made all the more emotional and amazing given that it immediately followed a war that they just went through - blood being a contributor to that. Basically, there's a reason why fans love it, it's not just because "it looks cool", but because it adds to the story and makes a great match, angle, or storyline that much greater when done right. Key words being done right.

Gotta say it was nice of Cody and Dean to be so humble on social media after the event. It's like they're doing all the can to not make Vince have a rage stroke.

I'm basically WAY behind on everything except mainline NXT right now (NXT UK is close, but I have like 6 of TV shows to catch up on). AEW I don't have easy access to unless I want to watch it on some sketchy/filthy streaming site. Although, my interest is low since the main AEW angle is the tired-since-1997 "FU WWE/WWF" gimmick (plus I'm not a rebellious teen anymore, I'm old now!).

Basically, I've learned that main roster WWE between Wrestlemania and Summerslam is break season, so I'll watch again come August or so. If WWE is looking to do interesting things again, I'd say they should look at what they were doing in late 2017 and early 2018. IMO that was an awesome stretch.



I describe myself as a little dose of toxic masculinity.

But if rumours are true that the 24/7 title was "some network executive's idea that WWE thought was dumb but was forced to try." then it just goes to show how out of touch they are with things that can make their show popular. As right now the 24/7 title series is by far the most popular video series currently going on WWE's youtube channel. R Truth will be reminiscent of the 24/7 rule hardcore champions of old, particularly Crash Holly 2.0... kind of funny, because R Truth is actually old enough to have WON the 24/7 hardcore title twice back in 2001 - both times by pinning Raven, and losing each time to Crash.

But anyway, here it is; something most über/hardcore/epic/1337 wrestling fans will hate due to its goofiness, but the rest of us will love due to its goofiness!



I describe myself as a little dose of toxic masculinity.

One thing I have noticed about NXT, is that a match like Tyler Breeze vs. Dream would be reviewed as a 4-4.5 out of 5 match on any main roster show, but because there's usually 2-3 matches with quality up in the stratosphere, these otherwise great matches get knocked down to average scores (like a 2.5-3 out of 5). In short, Breeze vs. Dream was prime Chris Jericho vs. prime Chris Jericho.



I describe myself as a little dose of toxic masculinity.

that taker match was both sad and painful to watch :(

gotta say, Vince offers him money, he takes it knowing he cant perform. this is 100% the fault of the greed of those in the ring and all the blame should fall on them, fuck off and move on so new stars can main event, not watch some old farts fall around and snap each others necks and hips, lost a ton of respect for all involved tonight for so many reasons.
