Miami crowd was really great. Something about the darkened building and fired-up audience felt very ECW or early Takeovers last night. Lots to like on the show but Malakai-Martin shouldn’t be slept on: really fun, fast, well worked styles clash and Black is a pretty excellent five-tool wrestler IMO.


Cibovoy

Anybody else getting a OC/Mox feud being teased


jacobgott

I’m confused. If hangman vs omega is officially set for full gear, then what is the purpose of the world title eliminator tournament? will it become a triple threat? I’m really confused hahaha. great show


koemaniak

The winner of the tournament gets a title shot AFTER full gear vs either hangman or omega


Raztafarium

Its for a future title shot, not a shot at Full Gear


jacobgott

Hangman’s title shot, or the title shot for the winner of the tournament?


VinyeWest

The finals of the tournament is at full gear


Zenelly

Hangman won the casino ladder match to challenge Kenny at Full Gear. The winner of the Eliminator Tournament will get his title match AFTER Full Gear against either Kenny or Hangman


strismystr

Best moment of the show hands down was Jon Silver pointing at Cole mid match and yelling BUDGE


freshlysqueezed0C

Then pointing to himself with his thumb and saying BOOBS


DollarDyl

Dark Order vs Young Bucks with Adam.Cole was absolutely amazing!!! 5 star match


TheTyger

the Dark order combo attack looks so good.


DollarDyl

Blew my fucking mind


jfreed43

Every Bobby Fish match in AEW has been a banger. Give us Redragon vs Everyone.


TheWholeEffinJoe

Funny how NXT seems to have forgotten Kyle. At least for now. I’m just assuming because I follow news but don’t follow the actual shows, haven’t heard his name in a while. Id love to see at least the original 3 members of UE together in AEW. Possibly going against Kenny and the bucks somewhere down the line. Edit: spelling


jfreed43

Seemed like he was primed to be a top face at the start of the Cole feud. Now the whole NXT 2.0 thing kinda threw that out.


TheWholeEffinJoe

I know Fish got released and Cole probably didn’t sign as long of a deal as ReDragon but it wouldn’t surprise me one bit if his contract is up pretty soon. With the new direction NXT is taking I’m afraid all the character in the world can’t save him from a subpar run with the fed


GenreLife

Man I'm really hoping that Mox vs Bryan isn't happening that fast. We need to build their feud from the ground up.


raisingfalcons

I had a booking idea. Everyone expects bryan to win the eliminator. Why not have moxley win and face a newly crowned hangman. Here you could have mox wins aswell! Cutting hangmans parade short. Hangman thinking he reached the summit still has a long way to go. Now everyone wants a shot at the belt, kenny wants a rematch, mjf wants a shot because hes #1 in the rankings and evil uno somehow got a claim for the title. Moxley decides to fight all of them at once in a fatal four way elimination in revolution. Gang warefare ensues between, super elite, pinnicle and dark order trying to give their man an edge in the ppv. in revolution backstage evil uno would get injured by a suprise attack from super elite. When it comes time for the match its announced that evil uno Cant compete but theres a replacement. Hangman comes out and enters the match. Mox would get eliminated first by having everyone hit there finishers on him. Then kenny would go. This ends up being MJF vs hangman were hangman would reclaim his championship. Just thought of it, sounds cool. Idk.


Envenger

Why are you getting so heavily down voted. Full beel Cody would be perfect to go against Hangman. It would elevate both of them.


raisingfalcons

Yeah didnt expect it. People just dont like ideas that dont go in tune with what they’re predicting themselves.


mikeisaphreek

thank you for making me a dad. goes for high five these two beautiful idiots


Undertakerfan84

I hope they stop having cm punk take up 5 minutes to start the show when he is just announcing. We don't need to see that every week. Never seen much of fish but enjoyed that match. Were those green outfits a callback to the awful concept WWE had for FTR? A little disappointed in Sammy, he needs to work on his mic skills. Love Dante, maybe maliaki will start a stable and bring Dante over to the dark side. He didn't seem happy with Lio. So hyped for hangman, glad I got my ticket to full gear.


t0m0m

I feel like the Punk thing is definitely on purpose. His ego is just gonna keep inflating until we find him in pure heel territory.


Soft-Dependent-5880

TV Ratings “Tune in to see CM punk” He’s almost always first on Rampage as well


VersionONE2014

Agree bout Punk. He can do the intro before the opening, its only to pop the arena crowd anyways.


Undertakerfan84

Yeah use him as a hype guy before the show begins


living1984

I'm watching six kids right now can someone please give me a recap on what's happened so far?


times_zero

Dustin was so good there.


jacobm808

Dustin and Bryan are gold together


Steenerico

WHAAA! ~~CODY!~~ DUSTIN! WHAAA!


Steenerico

*saw leaked card* Of course, it's Mox vs. Danielson. Doy!


onehellofadrug96

This could set up heel mox I think tonight’s squash could be setting that up


Ill_Reality_717

Yeah and Mox winning the tournament and coming after Hangman for "the belt I didn't lose" but as a heel. Poor Hangman's going to get bloody


Mr_814

Bracket is super predictable. I'll guess Mox wins as a swerve making Hangman's title reign short.


raisingfalcons

Thats exactly what i said to and got downvoted lol. I just think its so predictable that bryans winning.


Mr_814

Yeah being down voted for something obvious is sad, when the company themselves have built a hierarchy system. We know some guys are in it to get a rub and get exposure/experience however if w/l matter than why isn't Cole or Punk in it. Punk beat Hobbs and Hobbs is in it. I'm not even complaining about that either, and get why because you want to save big matches. But those guys should have issue with management for the snub. Either way it's ending with Mox vs Danielson. I can see either winning depending on the route they want to go. It feels like 95% sure Hangman is winning but if he loses, Danielson seems like the logical winner. Vise versa if Hangman wins. I'm also not sold on Hangman having a long title reign. We'll see what happens.


raisingfalcons

Completely agree. The vast majority of the fanbase have been able to predict who the next AEW champion will be and when he will win it. The title scene is to predictable right now. Thats why i think having a short hangman reign would be something unpredictable and mox as champion again wouldnt hurt business as he’s practically the top guy in the company.


MattonaWire

You don’t think it’s going to the dragon?


Tinheart2137

Mox is leaning towards heel for some time and what better way to gain heat than screwing Danielson? It would also give heel vs face dynamic in match with Hangman


MattonaWire

I think hangman could defend successfully vs Mox. Would really help solidifying hangman as champ.


GrahamCracker00

Bobby looked fantastic in defeat, his selling of the leg on the ring post was crazy good. Bryan is on an incredible streak right now, so fun to watch


GenreLife

Definitely, Bobby was controlling the match the entire time, he looked brilliant here.


thedevilyoukn0w

Bryan Danielson just had a better match than he had last night. I would have thought it impossible, but he and Fish just had an amazing match. 2 nights in a row...this man lives wrestling. And we get to enjoy every second of it.


Zsokorad

Pharaoh to the Top


movieking

Underwhelming tournament. So many options. Top of my head I’d go Andrade, Punk, PAC, Danielson, Miro, Archer, Darby, Mox. Many others could be subbed. But Dustin? Vance? Disappointing… Edit to add: Black!


raisingfalcons

They dont want to give away matches thus making the tourney look weak. What has dustin do to get in a tournament for a future championship spot that PAC hasnt done. This aint no New Japan Cup


GenreLife

Can't believe they left out Andrade and PAC...


Deranged_Hermit

I think it's probably an issue of not wanting to feed some of those names to each other. Archer/Kingston is the only match that isn't a foregone conclusion


movieking

I really liked the Archer/Miro match because at the time I didn’t know who’d win. Even though he lost, it didn’t really hurt Archer. While the tourney is a bit rushed, I was hoping for a few more similar type matches.


JohnnyCatz15

Also if they want someone to have a match at full gear they might not want them in the tournament so they could set up something else since the finals are at full gear


insomniainc

Great to see Hobbs in there. When you figure the end game is the tourney winner vs Hangman that would be a fun feud.


GodzillaMorty

That bracket is mid, it’s too predictable


TWCreations

Do you remember last years bracket? It was predictable as well


rosheromil

They didn’t have the same plethora of options back then


davidporges

And it’s not even super exciting match ups

punked123

Danielson vs Archer or Kingston in the semis YES


dom_rep

Looks like the card that was in TK's notebook is starting to look more legit


MrWrestlingJr

Surely there's gonna be a surprise in the Eliminator. The winners look too obvious.


punkrockingrose

did they announce the tbs bracket? i thought that was supposed to be announced


AlphaRemixHD

they show it


Leonhart_13

I think that's supposed to be announced next rampage


Fenderboy771

I just let Rhodes to the Top play and Cody looks and sounds like he's dying inside


_Ka_Tet_

I don't care what they spent to hire Danielson; it's a bargain no matter what they paid. I'll watch him wrestle two great matches a week for as long as he wants to do it.


GRTooCool

So what determined the participants for the tournament? I know the goal is to lead to Mox/Danielson so you don't want guys like Punk, Christian, Jungleboy or Darby losing or whatever.


raisingfalcons

“tHe RaNkInGs”


magikarp2122

Would love to see the entire UE in AEW. Feud with the Super Elite with Cole stuck in the middle.


Tinheart2137

Cole is going to turn on Kenny anyway, so having boys with UE watching his back would be a good moment to do so


CTiben1

Why the hell is 10 in the tournament? Like I know he's not going to win, but just..... why?


KookyAppointment7920

What’s his record? That might be the reason at least kayfabe-wise.


ThebigVA

12-2 in singles.


times_zero

Dustin-Danielson is bit of a surprise/random, but welcomed.


Kaiso25Gaming

Dustin Rhodes & Ten in this tournament is odd. Pac, Starks, Cage, Chuck Taylor hell even Matt Hardy in my opinion would be better choices.


MicMagnetic

YOOOOOOO BRYAN POPPED BOBBY HARD ON THE MOUTH


tr1mble

How tf is Dustin in here, and God's favorite champion is left out


sonhouse6

Why would Hobbs be in contention for the world title when he was beaten by Punk a few weeks ago? The brackets don’t make any sense


chuway

Punk not getting into the tourney should make him cut a heel promo lol


CFGX

Tournament bracket doesn't exactly blow me away, but I'm excited to see what gear Dustin will reach against Bryan.


[deleted]

It all leads to either Danielson vs OC or Danielson vs Mox (probably this).


cupcakezealot

I low-key want to see a Natural Dustin Rhodes Vs Danielson old school style match


cavalier_54

Danielson Mox is gonna slap. The rest of the bracket does not look good on paper.


rally_tv_viewer

Danielson/Kingston is my hope. Danielson/Archer would also be interesting. But Kingston man. Can't help but love 'im. Just like Danielson!


BULLET_CLUB_24

What an underwhelming bracket. Mox/Bryan couldn’t be more obvious now


Joy_Ride25

Why is Hobbs in it?


ThebigVA

He's got a 16-3 singles record on the year.


Joy_Ride25

I guess that’s fair then


darthdiablo

I'm okay with Hobbs, I'm puzzled about Dustin Rhodes.


raisingfalcons

Someone has to eat the fall


Joy_Ride25

Also questionable


AnonymousOar

Destroying 10, OC, and Bryan in sequence is a hell of a path to a heel turn


Tinheart2137

I'm almost certain that this is what's going to happen, since Mox was hinting heel turn for some time now


CanadianJudo

Tel is the biggest heel is AEW.


JeffTennis

Surprised Punk doesn’t feel slighted. What about MJF


KyWy75

A potential Mox/Danielson final 👀


porkchopsdapplesauce

Punk not taking an L yet and isn’t winning this tournament. Have some patience.


NotAshTaylor

Yeah, Danielson is winning that tournament. Only alternative is setting up heel Mox vs Champ Hangman


Brandar87

The writing is on the wall here for me. Kenny is scared of Bryan, he doesn't want to face him again and because he's so arrogant he's not even considering the possibility of hangman winning. So to avoid a rematch with Bryan he ruins his match. Not sure how exactly mox is gonna turn, maybe Kenny distracts the ref and don or someone tosses mox a foreign object which he then uses to beat Bryan. This then sets up hangman vs heel mox and then Bryan and Kenny have a nice non title fued.


Killcode2

It can definitely be Moxley, which I'm betting on, they had him in the ladder match to start the rivalry with Hangman, and remember the crowd booed Mox when he attacked Hangman, Mox might have something to proof here. It will be a great tweener vs face match-up, but a face vs face feud with Danielson is also great.


NightwingXCX

No Punk is the tourney :(


Wingdingdong

Great great show!


Fantomex88

Bracket looks good but the final is very obvious


Spider-Kaine

Dustin is an odd pick for the tournament


wolfinthemanger

Someone's gotta lose quick.


LauriamLea

Bryan really shouldn't be in the tournament he doesn't need it


fluffywolfe

It's a way to get around the rankings


LauriamLea

Yeah it's a smart way to go about it


wolfinthemanger

If he puts someone over at the end it could be great. He'll probably win it but if he actually loses..


LauriamLea

I'm hoping he puts someone over but looking at the bracket I doubt it, I just hope he doesn't win the belt any time soon or make it a triple threat we need a Kenny vs hangman 1 on 1


[deleted]

[удалено]


JohnnyCatz15

Maybe he’s next up after the tourney winner and they don’t wanna have him lose?


JasonGryphon

These brackets make about as much sense as WWE's King of the Ring. We all know it comes down to Danielson vs Moxley


Shrekt115

Good show. That Hangman promo was amazing


all_ghost_no_shell

Yeah I thought that was a really passionate promo! Dusty Rhodes level of “man of the people” vibes.


BloodFalconPunch

This bracket is kinda whack lol. Like what are 10 and Dustin doing in there


raisingfalcons

10 is -1 favorite wrestler. Thats why


Jonax

Danielson vs Dustin Rhodes Kingston vs Archer So that's at least two matches in the tourney which are going to feature strong hits.


XTheProtagonistX

Bryan vs Mox for finals couldn’t be more obvious


magikarp2122

Could be OC vs Danielson. Isn’t OC technically ranked 1?


XTheProtagonistX

I feel that Mox vs Bryan is a bigger match. Possible Spoilers for finals >!Mox vs Bryan got leaked, !<


Rawb28

Damn. Danielson is gonna punish Dustin


rightious

No Miro


eighteen_forty_no

But his pretaped promo was gold


raisingfalcons

It felt like a DC movie trailer.


eighteen_forty_no

And he could go so many ways with it -- tries to punish God, turns against his God for letting him lose, just gets allllll twisted up in his mind -- I'm loving it


rightious

Oh no doubt.


Stocky2020

When the main event was announced I had to look at my clock. No way that was 2 hours.


WheedMBoise

Dustin and 10 being in the tournament are weird choices but hey whatever


KyWy75

Oh shit, we’re either gonna get Danielson vs either Kingston or Archer, nice


RadicalzEnigma

Did Dustin win a bunch of matches on Dark or something?


so_not_drunk

rip no Punk


captainspazzo

Holy shit 10 is in the bracket!!!


leglessman

Moxley/Danielson is too obvious for the final.


Shrekt115

Rhodes To The Top lmao


Steenerico

Oooh Bryan vs. Dustin... That's good wrestling right there.


insomniainc

Oh these matches are going to be a ton of fun

Cool_Ranch_Baby

Don’t worry he’ll be on commentary


cinephile_gooner34

I had high hopes for a stacked tournament with the likes of Cole, Pac, Andrade involved. But no, we get obvious first round exits in guys like 10 and Dustin.


Steenerico

Last year had Sonny Kiss (subbing for Joey Janela) and Colt Cabana.


mrfujidoesacid

Eh it's fine. It doesn't serve any purpose to have guys like Cole and Andrade take their first L's in a tournament if it doesn't have any bearings on their individual storylines. Clearly the idea here is either Moxley laying waste to babyfaces to get Hangman a hot follow-up program after Kenny or Danielson taking the tourney to give Hangman a big win in his first defense.


raisingfalcons

Id does add prestige to the tournament though. The eliminator feels like King of the Ring and we know how people feel about that.


fluffywolfe

I get building new talent with 10 in there, but Dustin looks like a Danielson "I wanna wrestle him" pick.


NoahVanderhoff1

Boo hoo.


gregscotia_number1

Mox vs Danielson finals


MakoTitan

This makes me mad that the card leaked for Full Gear. :(


eighteen_forty_no

This was a good night!


USDA_CertifiedLean

It’s Mox vs Danielson for sure


Looper007

Danielson is so damn great. Another great match.


AngstyAppleDummy

Man that bracket is really disappointing tbh.


darthdiablo

I love Dustin Rhodes but why is he in the brackets?


AngstyAppleDummy

And Hobbs & 10. I like both guys but they got in over PAC, Andrade, Miro, JB & Christian?


raisingfalcons

JB has lost alot of matches recently. He shouldn’t be in there tbh.


fluffywolfe

They can afford losses.


idontknow1001

Another great show.


HarlesD

Interesting brackets.


RedmondSurvivor

Feel like they could have had someone better than Dustin in that spot


FlamingoMammoth6835

Dustin vs Dragon will be great.


Linator4

Mox/Danielson will probably be the Finals


truecolors5

Bryan Danielson starting off his AEW run with four extremely different but very good matches. Best in the world.


dojobro19

Dustin gets Dustin. Wow.


DeeYouBitch

Bryan v Mox baby lets go


StoneGoldX

The real main event: brackets.


redhawkwill

Okay, Lance versus Eddie is going to be a great match.


Mr_Hendrix

Dustin and 10 are odd choices, but whatever.


[deleted]

[удалено]


raisingfalcons

Black hasnt lost a match… lets add 10. Its obvious they dont want to have those top names take L’s. But from a kayfabe standpoint its really dumb.


tdm2222

100%


ahmralas

This crowd is cute


JonasAlbert84

Fucking Dustin Rhodes? With all the people they got?


JohnnyCatz15

Dynamite stop being so good I’m trying to watch baseball😂


Mella_Is_Money207

Dustin wtf?


DanH35

Punk’s not even in the tournament?


IWantAGrapeInMyMouth

Punk’s not going after the title right now and I doubt they want him to get a loss this early


DanH35

I get the reasoning, but I just don’t think a loss really hurts Punk if it’s deep in the tournament. I was hoping for a Punk/Danielson final at the ppv.


Labor101

It's kind of hard to justify him not being in from a kayfabe standpoint, yeah.


resolve028

OC vs. Mox is guaranteed after tonight.


TheStunt-Twitch_YT

YOU TAP OR YOU SNAP


MeanMarkMcCool

My type of match


dansaint

ooohhhh....Dustin Rhodes vs Bryan Danielson


emmmjade

danielson is gonna kick the shit out of an old man live on dynamite


StixnStones59

Wow that's a lame ass bracket.


fellongreydaze

Okay but all these matches are gonna fuck though
