Take my money!
One should be called "Slobberknocker"
That would be the perfect name for one of those THC/CBD infused lollipops or some kind of edible
Though I’d buy a straight up bag of slobberknocker lol

True, but man he is making everyone look really good!
Just caught up with Dynamite, great match from Deeb and Shida.
Hoping we get a Pac/Andrade/Black/Cody four way out of that stuff.
Also caught Dark for the first time in a while this week and the new format is very NXT circa 2012/13, hope they finally keep building that into a fully featured wrestling show to give folks more to do when they aren't on Dynamite and Rampage. Did laugh that Riho and Bryan didn't realise there was no ramp until they were already into their entrances. 2 Fast 2 Fuego was fun as well.
its going around that it was originally supposed to be a squid game theme for the elite and they had to swap same day due to licensing.
so crazy because the ghostbuster thing just worked naturally and was a great finish to have hangman as staypuft. shows you aew can change last minute and still be good, and their talent can deliver the content no matter what. probably one of my favorite halloween shows in recent memory.
JR's bbq sauce flavored weed.
Reports I've seen said it was TNT that axed the Squid Game plan. Match probably would have gone the same minus the proton pack spots, Hangman just would have been done up as a guard or whatever instead of Staypuft. Still, that was a hell of a turnaround on the theme change.
And the Hangman removing the Staypuft head bit is going to be a great out of context clip in future video packages.
Hacksaw Jim Duggan announced he has Prostate cancer.
I don't know if there will be a season 4 of Dark Side of the Ring. To me this season kinda scraped the bottom of the barrel on a few topics. I don't know how many more stories are out there to be told.
Call me crazy but I could've sworn I've seen the Elite wrestle in the Ghostbusters costumes before in the Indies. Still a cool moment to see them in it.
Think they did in Japan before
The problem is that some of the topics that would make good eps are very recent/controversial or are more broad than 1-2 people.
You could do a great Dark Side ep on the Me Too allegations that ended a bunch of careers a few years ago. You could do a decent one on the latter years and end of Punks WWE career and all of his various lawsuits after.
You could do one on the “permanently injured” talents returning and the circumstance around that. Bryan doctor shopped to get cleared and was pushed out/retired prematurely partially due to WWE politics. Paige rushed back and was reinjured almost immediately…. And she’s still trying to return, which is so self destructive that it borders on suicidal. Hell, you could do an ep on that. Suicidal determination. Where you talk about Vader pushing himself to wrestle while going through heart failure.
There’s lots of good topics. But they’re not as ‘safe’ as a lot of the older ones and could risk the shows ability to get wrestlers on to speak
The creators have talked about doing an episode on Chris Adams and the circumstances with his death. The Pat Patterson ring boy scandel could be done as well. I guess we'll have to wait and see.
I'm obviously in the minority here, but I was not a fan of that costume match. After that excellent promo from a few weeks back, I was really hoping that Hangman was going to get a serious push. Then he gets sent out in a damn Stay-Puft outfit. smh.
Right now, I'm invested in the MJF/Darby feud. MJF has been generating some amazing heat since finally getting away from Jericho and I'm really looking forward that match.
I'm also interested in seeing where this heel turn from Serena Deeb goes. She's a damn good wrestler and I feel like she hasn't been used as well as she should be on camera. We also need more Thunder Rosa. I have no idea why she isn't on TV every week. She's way too good to hide.
It's been cool having Punk and Danielson join the roster and bring a bit more legitimacy to the promotion. Haven't seen a bad match out of either of them so far since they joined AEW. Add in some of the other WWE transplants like Malakai Black, Ruby Soho, Bobby Fish, and Adam Cole and I think they're all making a positive impact on the shows. It's starting to get interesting again.

Eh. You're entitled to your opinion but the match and everything worked well for me.
I view Hangman in the Staypuft outfit as an instance of one of the old wrestling tropes. He outsmarted his enemy by disguising himself so he could attack them when they least expected it.
Not only that, it was a bait-and-switch. Everyone initially thought it was Hangman in the horse costume, and Brandon Cutler as Stay Puft, then when Cole & Bucks unmasked the horse and saw it was actually Cutler instead (whose mouth was taped shut so he couldn’t warn anyone), upon realizing they had inadvertently friendly-fired on their own teammate, THAT’S when the twist came into play
