    Had a few hot line near the end but the whole promo felt like the usual monologue that bores me. Crowd was eating out of his hand though. Crowd is all in on Cody. I think he either wins or they go 60 minutes *shudders*

I don't really see how 'my dad was criticised for being a main eventer and a booker' leads to 'so if I don't win I can never challenge again'. The critics will still be there if he wins the title on Saturday while he's executive vice president. When he went on the attack on Jericho though I thought it really picked up to something great.

    I agree though, that pretty much gives away Cody wins.
    Why? It makes sense. It's basically Cody saying if he isn't good enough to win the title against Jericho, he's not going to keep using his pull to get shots. He's making it so no one can claim his accomplishments are due to his position of power, and he's making sure he backs up all his talk leading into this event.

    But honestly, that beginning to the promo was probably just an excuse to name drop his dad and other territory legends before revving up and taking aim at Jericho. It was really well executed though and I would say one of the best promos I've seen all year.

    It's really crazy because Jericho's Inner Circle promo, Moxley's promo last week and Cody's this week have all been AMAZING. Why wouldn't they want to do more talking segments when they have such great talkers?

Plus Cody can always turn heel in a year or two and go for the belt anyway because bad guys break their word.
    I agree with the points you make on how Cody is above the title, but just to add a thought, given Jericho is wrestling Tanahashi at the dome show, there's no way AEW would send their world champion over there to lose. I think there's little signs there that they are considering putting the title on Cody which seemed a very slim possibility when they booked the match.

    That was pretty good. As expected. Probably the best hour AEW has done so far.

    Ah, the challenges of only following one or two wrestling companies in 2019

    I can see that then. I think part of it, to me, is that booking the match with this stip, as you all suggested, seems to make it very obvious that Cody is winning. I'm trying to give AEW some credit and assume that the only reason to make an obvious stip is to put a swerve on the end of it, which means leaning left into Cody's announcement before leaning right and having him lose the match. If this was WWE I'd just assume it was a stupid short-sighted idea, I want to believe AEW is better than that because it's not like the match needed that needless stip. Wishful thinking, perhaps, that they'll swerve it instead of going for the obvious. Guess we'll find out.

    You can tell this video package is Jericho's brainchild because it's legitimately hilarious.

    The Dark Order are dead in the water, huh? Better just shoo them away asap.

    What a fantastic video by The Inner Circle. A rare genuinely humorous wrestling segment. I only question if it's the right move to have such a charming video package for the guys who are meant to be the biggest heels in the company. But then again, nWo did alright for themselves being cool heels for a long time.

    It's not the best move because you're really gonna struggle to get these guys over as heels, but at this point in time I don't think it matters all that much, go down the road of having two super over stars in your main event (and ultimately I think the live fans on Saturday will still be in Cody's corner). That was the best thing AEW have ever produced and it's gonna be all over twitter/reddit for the next day or two to help hype up this match.

    I totally agree. And I think we've seen these guys can be "true heels" when needed, like they were last week.

    This is a really random match up here I feel. I would have figured something like Hayter and Priestly vs. Shanna and Baker if anything. And why is Sakura getting a title shot, she's got a 1-2 record doesn't she? Get your shit together, AEW.

    I'm actually pretty impressed by Shanna, I thought the Shida matched dragged but damn she looks a lot better here, and the flow of this match is a lot better too. Sakura singing We Will Rock You while out of breath is hilarious LMFAO

    Yeah, Shanna and Hayter have both made really good impressions recently. They are more than welcome additions to this division for me.

    Brandi being a weekly fixture ugh.

    The match was good. Emi Sakur pinning Riho was surprising.

    Think it would of reduced a lot of criticism of the womens title match if they had waited until after this show to announce Riho Vs Sakura based on Sakura catching the champ with a pin on live TV, and not announce the match hours before AND then she pins her.

    Just because Brandi is probably one of the better talkers in the womens division, doesn't mean she needs to be having some big angle in the division. Although that said I'm not against her being the manager of Kong, it's just too weird to have her be this heel character but then talking up Cody Rhodes in video packages.

    Why give Tully to Shawn Spears when he was just going to flounder in the midcard? Just because he was with Cody?

    Midcarders need managers too. Spears is at least on an upward path now. But if his next feud is with Janela, well, I don't see that being a big crowd pleaser.

    Oh yeah, I just remembered they've been teasing Janela/Spears a bit.
