    Cringed at Aero Star almost going head first strait down from the ring to floor, makes me appreciate more how great Penta and Fenix are that they do all the crazy lucha stuff without looking like they are about to actually kill themselves.

    Fun show otherwise and credit to Punk for his promo. Looking forward to Rosa vs Hayter and Bryan vs Miro in the tournaments, those are probably going to be belters.

    i'm not so sure that's Mei Suruga after seeing the pictures on twitter, are we sure she hasn't been kidnapped and replaced by Mei Saint-Michel?

    Go watch any Dark Side of the Ring episode. I take it your're a Vince fanboy, but he's a piece of shit.

    WWE women’s divisions are going to be pretty much dead once the horsewomen move on, not the least bit surprised that Haitch was the only dude in management who cared about it for anything other then PR.

    I'm genuinely glad Keith Lee/Mia Yim is outta there! Hope to see their talent elsewhere. Also there goes Hit Row/B-Fab.

    Happy that Kieth Lee has finally escaped that nightmare.

    Hopefully this will be the end of Nia and Eva Marie as no sane person would want to put them on international TV.

    We better get a limitless Keith on Dynamite. Who would have thought that “Bearcat” wouldn’t work for Lee lol

    Ember, Frankie, and Mia would bolster their womens division a ton too.

    Nia, Eva, and Kross/Scarlett can disappear from the wrestling world entirely, for all I care. Kross was boring and Jax hurt everyone. She should have been fired, not laid off in a budget cut.

    Harry Smith never even made it to TV after signing. That was a weird waste of money and time.

    Dorado and Metallik were good, but I can’t imagine them tearing it up on a major US promotion. Probably AAA.

    The rest? Could care less. Either don’t know them all that well or have no interest either way.

    Glad that Eva Marie is gone! Good riddance. Really surprised Nia Jax is gone given her family connection.

    STILL don’t think TK needs to buy WWE or is this proof enough that he needs to bust out the checkbook?!

    I have and yes vince is a shitbag but you also made a baseless claim of people bouncing in and out of rehab and then dying. For every Scott Hall who DID relapse a fair amount, how many didnt?

    Tony Khan needs to get them as soon as their NCCs run out, then buy WWE outright immediately after.

    and if he does then we are all back to square one with a different billionaire monopolising pro wrestling. Stop being a fantasist.

    Be happy to see Ember / Lee get a shot at AEW and Harry Smith will likely end up there or impact.

    Couldn’t give a hoot about the rest…. But if Scarlett needs to turn to nudes to make ends meet….

    I suppose that's possible. I did note elsewhere that her look feels like it's taken some inspiration from Sakisama, and they've never met as far as I know.

    As for all the firings... awful for those who got released. Budget cuts while the company is making record profits, etc. Same shit as last time.
    I expect Keith Lee and Ember Moon are on TK's short list, maybe Franky Monet/Taya Valkyrie if they can look past the fact she turned them down to sign with WWE last time. While most of the people on that list are worth a look, I don't think they're worth jumping on immediately.

    I have to wonder how much the recent RoH news affected the firings. Wonder if some were cut because the market is going to be flooded soon with the idea that AEW may need to make tough choices on who to actually pick up.

    Budget cuts my ass.

    Keith Lee - what?!
    Karrion Kross - what?!
    Eva Marie - BIG FUCKING YAY!
    Nia Jax - better late then never.
    Ember Moon - I don't think she was ever given a fair shot.
    Mia Yim - honestly who?
    Harry Smith - again who?
    Scarlett - uh?
    B-Fab - she was just barely called to the main roster, what the hell, dude?
    Katrina Cortez - WTH?
    Trey Baxter - can't remember the guy.
    Franky Monet - what the hell?!
    Gran Metalik - he has been wanting to be released for a while now.
    Jeet Rama - didn't he just debuted? Nevermind. He has been there for a while but still.
    Zayda Ramier - name escapes me.
    Oney Lorcan - dude... No.
    Lince Dorado - same as Gran Metalik
    Jessi Kamea - who?

    What the fuck is going on?!?!?!
