    Page crowd surfing and sipping bear made him look like a million bucks imo. This also marks the very first title change in AEW since its inception.

    Heel-tease Page is more over as a babyface than babyface Page. They’re gonna accidentally turn the rest of The Elite as long as he keeps drinking

    Title change was a good direction I didn’t expect they’d take. I’m more curious to see the dynamic play out now they’re stuck together, plus SCU are meh.

    Second coolest thing: fans singing along to Judas.

    What wasn’t cool was building up Jungle Boy with this strong video package, then him just not factoring into the finish. Instead, it was more like they took that chance to put Marko Stunt over. Weak.

    I love the way this show looked, being on the boat. It's always great to see wrestling in unique settings (especially a major company).

    Strong outing for Dynamite this week, I'd say. They have my interest with Page and Omega winning the tag titles. One thing I thought I was odd was how Page was clearly annoyed with The Bucks but still went and drank beers and crowd surfed after the match. Like Marketh said, it's kinda funny how Page is getting more momentum as a face now that he's teetering on a heel turn. Wouldn't be surprised if AEW nix that now. They might need to. We'll see what happens.

    Once again the one weak part of the show for me was with the women. Priscilla Kelly vs. Britt Baker? And that's supposed to be good? We did get the great Tony Schiavone "what the FUCK?" gif though so it's not all bad.

    Yeah Page is slowly starting to pick up the hot hand and it's becoming more evident with every show. Revolution is sounding really solid as well with Jericho/Moxley to main event, and MJF/Cody. Really just depends on how they choose to fill out the rest of the card now.

    The opening match was fine. I'm not invested in Page or Kenny in this company and SCU do nothing for me. The match seemed to drag on quite a bit as well. Britt's promo was super bad. Her voice lacked any enthusiasm, commitment or any emotion. It was bad. Even her "I'm a dentist" line was said with little oomph.

    Went to bed after that. Will need to watch PAC vs Moxley. The rest I have not much interest in checking out.

    I'm glad they kept Mox with the eye patch and hope they continue to keep it a focal point for the build to Mox/Jericho.

    I absolutely loved the look of the show on the cruise ship, I worried it would look bush league as fuck but they really made it work. The crowd singing along to Judas was also solid. I'm indifferent on SCU losing the belts.

    Turned the show off after an hour. This continues to be not my cup of tea, I think this show was well received by most people as they didn't have Brandi or Dark Order on this week, but nothing is grabbing me atm.

    The opening tag match felt like it went on forever and I don't remember an awful lot of what happened in it. I think that's down to SCU being unremarkable. The best tag team division in the world as Young Buck's wanted to set up now has champions that are two singles guys that don't get along - WWE trope much? Granted they are going about this a more drawn out route but I think we all know this is ending up with Kenny Vs Page down the line.

    The Britt Baker promo was awful and has that familiar feel of 'we tried her as a babyface but it bombed, so we're gonna just turn her heel'. Going with the 'i'm a dentist' thing is fine if she's gonna make digs she's smarter than everyone else, but there's no charisma behind her delivery so it fell flat for me.

    Thought the visual of the boat was incredible. Really unique and memorable, and made me wish I was on the cruise. I don't know all the words to Judas, though, so not sure I'd be welcome.

    Excellent wrestling throughout, with the opening tag match being the standout. Felt very different to the usual spot-fest stuff that they've been doing since the first week. Built and built and saved all its big moments for the climax. Really didn't expect a title change - apparently they spoiled that themselves on their twitter account? They've got to sort that shit out. Didn't particularly care for Baker v Kelly. Thought Priscilla was far better than Brit and don't know when they're finally going to give up on her. The promo after the match was just odd. Not good at all. The 6-man with Inner Circle was fun. I didn't mind the finish. They managed to make everyone look strong, including Stunt. I enjoyed the main event but I wasn't a fan of Mox's eye patch. Was a little silly and a bit too close to goofy Ambrose for me. The match was good though. Disappointing that PAC didn't win - loved his segment before the match.

    I've seen very little of MJF's independent stuff and am not sold on him in the ring in AEW. Haven't seen a good MJF match so far.
