    Omega/Guevara could be fun. And for a change, I'm actually intrigued by a Best Friends match.

    Wardlow/Luchasaurus lumberjack match sounds random as fuck. Cody/Havoc is whatever.

    I really struggle through these empty arena shows. It's fine once or twice but it loses its appeal quick and we're left with dry shows. I turned it off way through because of it.

    Then I saw all the stuff with Matt Hardy and the Vanguard1, the disappearing act, etc. And it's not for me at all. I know it has its fanbase but it's a total turn off for me. The editing, alone, is worth nominating for the Wrestle Crap award.

    As for the Dark Order. So the whole act was just an elaborate joke on Vince McMahon and WWE? Assuming that it was planned from the start with the end goal always bring Brodie Lee. I kind of admire that dedication and reminds me a lot of one of my favourite promotions, DDT - all in on the jokes. But here's the problem, we were told to invest in this act as a serious group. And now all of that makes me feel that they've wasted their and my time. I don't want to waste my time watching these stuff.

    Hearing it gives me "Kevin Nash dresses up as Vince" vibes. It's just a waste of Brodie Lee. He may get popular with it because that's what the fanbase once but having your post WWE gimmick be a joke towards WWE just feels like a waste of talent on his part.

    This might be just be me, but this stuff makes me worry about AEW long term. I see WCW and TNA and they made the same mistakes of doing this stuff. It may seem small at the time but in the long run, it hurts.

    Well, it's either an empty arena show or no show at all. Honestly, it may end up being the latter pretty soon, depending on Florida issuing a Stay at Home order. It's likely also the reason that WWE is taping everything through the Raw after 'Mania this week.

    Personally, I don't mind the empty arena vibe. I can see how it'll become off-putting if it lasts for a long time, but hopefully that won't be the case.

    As for the Dark Order. So the whole act was just an elaborate joke on Vince McMahon and WWE?
    I was trying to figure out what the purpose of that "dinner" segment was and then the sneeze thing happened and I burst out laughing. I don't know if I'd call it an elaborate joke, but it's clearly aimed straight at him and it just smacks of taking potshots when they're not called for. This is the same crap that they've been doing right from the get go when Cody smashed the throne. It's not surprising, but it's sad when you consider how adamant they were that AEW wasn't going to stoop to that kind of behaviour.

    On the whole, though, I enjoyed the show. The Omega/Guevara match was fun and I enjoyed both of the squashes, even if I still can't get behind Hager at all.

    Jericho vs Vanguard promo was great stuff, Jericho vs Hardy bit less so

    Jericho and Hardy promo hit levels of cringe to me, it didn't come off natural, and the empty arena really hurt it.

    As for the rest of the show, I thought it was great. Sammy continues to be one of the consistently best parts of the show.

    I get them and other companies doing empty arena shows. Content is key for most promotions, as if WWE haven't proved that already. I just can't enjoy them in large doses.

    I agree. The sneeze joke is pretty hilarious but it's the purpose and whole idea of it that rubs me the wrong way. It's something that they should stray away from.

    I was fairly interested in what they were trying to get at, but once they hit the dueling "Elite" and "DELETE" stuff I just gave up. A crowd would have helped, but losing some of the corny humour that only people like Vince enjoy would have gone a much longer way towards making it feel important.

    I thought it started off spectacularly with the Vanguard 1 stuff, I can't believe how downhill it all went from there though

    Broken Matt Hardy is the absolute dumbest thing I've ever seen in an AEW wrestling ring. That was stupid and bad.

    I'm actually REALLY excited about Brodie Lee as the Exalted One. I'm definitely expecting it to be a lot more than just Vince McMahon pot shots though. I'm loving the dichotomy of how Evil Uno and the vignettes were all about how they're strength in numbers and joining to better yourself, etc.. Because now you have Lee coming in and making it all about him and treating his minions like shit. I'm definitely hoping for that to be a long term arc where you have a member call him out as this false Messiah and doesn't care about any of them, akin to Saturn and Raven in WCW with The Flock.

    Re: AEW Dynamite On TNT - 25/03/2020

    I’m bummed there was no parking lot brawl.

    A lot of this episode felt like filler to me. The Hager squash/Mox run in was boring. The Brodie Lee squash wasn’t very interesting either.

    A lot of people are saying that the Brodie food segment with the sneezing was taking shots at Vince. Maybe I’m out of the loop. I don’t get it, and I found the segment boring.

    I don’t like Cody on commentary, but Tony was fine.

    Darby vs Kip was fine enough.

    Kenny vs Sammy was tons of fun. The wrestling action mixed with the stupid BS of the pictures was great. Sammy kissing the picture followed by the reaction shot of Brandi was amazing. I laughed really hard. The middle finger, v trigger, one winged angel ending was on point.

    I have mixed feelings on the final segment. Jericho cutting a promo on vanguard 1 was stupid but really funny. The whole teleporting thing was really lame. I was not a fan of that. Some of it worked for me. I liked Jericho playing everything down, and no selling Matt’s responses. But the whole broken character was fine in Impact where no one cared and it didn’t matter. Now that he is in AEW and everyone is watching, and he’ll be in the elite vs inner circle double cage match. For me, it just takes away from the seriousness and gravity of everything. The whole bit with the pyro at the end didn’t do anything for me either.

    I want to be excited about Matt and Brodie, but I feel they both weren’t needed. Eh.

    Brodie really should have just crushed QT inside a minute. No need for that to have gone as long as it did (and it was still a short match) or have QT get in ANY offence. It was Brodie's first AEW match, him not squashing a dude like a bug took a bit out of wind out the sails I think.

    Side note, the whole Exalted One/Dark Order gimmick feels straight out of Chikara.

    Yeah I said the same thing when Hager had a competitive match with QT the Dynamite after Revolution. How much of a beast is Hager (or in this case Brodie) supposed to be if they can't even steamroll QT who is just a shade above local jobber? In the long run, matches like these probably won't matter, but in the short term it's definitely a poor choice when you're trying to establish these guys as threats.

    I was okay with the Brodie match at least because I don't think QT ever got him knocked off his feet one time, and was something commentary sold well. A straight squash would've been better, but this was still totally acceptable for me

    Is QT Marshall’s gimmick just “he likes apples”?

    Re: AEW Dynamite On TNT - 25/03/2020

    The Jericho/Hardy stuff was complete cringe; it may of been better in front of fans but I didn't find anything funny about it and if criticise WWE for doing the Fiend shit in 2020, then I've gotta criticise AEW for doing this supernatural nonsense in 2020. Final Deletion was 4 years ago and what everyone forgets is that Impact's ratings went down the more they pushed the Matt Hardy character. Putting him in a prominent position on the show is already looking like the bad look I knew it would be. This doesn't add to the blood and guts match, it takes away from it.

    I suppose it's different than taking jabs at Triple H, but creative at AEW should of rejected Brodie's idea to do a segment making jabs at Vince. I get he's got a personal issue there, but to me it was too jarring to what had come earlier in the night with the package of him debuting, and then his long squash where his attire is incredibly ordinary. Just focus on yourself and the stories that will benefit AEW.

    Given my issue with empty arena wrestling, and then Kenny and Cody being weaker on commentary than excalibur, this was the toughest Dynamite to watch in weeks. Not sure why they didn't do the wrestlers in the crowd thing this week.

    The shots ar Vince were when he said " Nobody eats before Daddy eats" and then the sneeze thing, which is a riff off of several superstars stating that they were depushed because they sneezed and that Vince has actually said that sneezing is a form of weakness.

    I find it weird that Vince has such an issue with sneezing, yet not with talent working during a global pandemic. Talk about picking your battles
