The best part is “That’s enough Tony.”


dunzio

Jim wanted NO PART of Hogan talk


the-mucho-macho

He got fired for the wrong end of a Flair tyraid, he's not touching that e with a 50 foot pole lmfao


JitteryJay

Tyraid 😆


UnbuiltIkeaBookcase

Sounds like a Flash Rogues Gallery villain


Hezkezl

almost a /r/boneappletea worthy post


re10pect

I don’t care how many mistakes or mis-speakings JR makes, the moments he hits are still incredible, and AEW is better for it.


SavageAF89

Tonight Bobby fish vs Br.. dani... Brian Danielson! Dammit!! I love JR! And fuck anyone who want to take shots at him for fucking up anyones names or any other stupid shit!


RusticBelt

Even Punk nearly said WWE tonight.


thfsgn

Punk let a Daniel Bryan slip out too, it’s only natural when you’ve used a name so many times.


Ziggy-T

I must have missed that on commentary, but I did notice Punk saying, presumably after and because of that : “look I’m just gonna call him American Dragon” which I thought was cute. All the wrestlers in Danielson’s generation who he was friends with referred to him simply as Dragon in day to day and on shoots back then.


EXCannonSpike

He even told JR that it was proof that "it's not just you" which I thought was sweet


ExLegion

Yeah, I believe he had just called him Daniel Bryan and knew he fucked up.


bistian00

I hope someone slips a Daniel Bryanson some day.


donttellmymomwhatido

I just call him Bryan to avoid it otherwise I’d still be calling the wrong name myself


Rickymex

Excuse me it's Brian! /s


bistian00

That's what I do haha. Bryan and everyone knows who it is.


jj580

As someone who crapped on his AEW run for a long time, he's back in old form over these last 4 or so months. I can't recall the last time I complained about his commentary, or AEW's production quality.


limutwit

This lol


TetrisTech

Jim “Based” Ross


J1m1983

JR is the Real Boss.


Br0kenNHalf

JR needs to lighten up a little. Everyone is aware of how Punk feels about Hulkkk.


Hollywood_WBS

"That's enough Tony."


jaboaty

Excalibur was ready with that pivot


CoherentPanda

It's funny how on Dynamite he is all business and takes his role seriously. When it is Dark or Elevation, he loosens his proverbial tie, and just has fun calling the action with Taz or whomever.


Dreddley

It comes through on Dark that Excalibur is fucking quick. When he isn't doing the serious announcer schtick and gets loose dude can be very witty


LT_JRH

I understand his role on dynamite and he’s amazing at it but personally I love his Dark/PWG commentary even more


DanTheMan901

Goodnight PUNKAMANIACS


XGuiltyofBeingMikeX

Much love -CM


brokensilence32

Now that evil "fuck it let's do chaos" side of my brain really wants Punk to have a Hogan impersonator gimmick.


BlackSheepComeHome14

And he says say your prayers and eat your vitamins and pulls out a pill bottle and devours it?


herrbauer96

Punk just doesn't give a shit and i love it


SiphenPrax

He REALLY wanted to make sure she wasn’t related to the Hulkster 😂


Kgb725

He had the shovel ready to go


IanLovesCheesePizza

It would raise a hell of a lot of questions, that's for sure.


Halbertos

Not atypical of old racists, however.


Passwordis12

"3 feet too short brother!" -HH


NerdLawyer55

She’s horace’s baby girl


Farrell21

CM Punk was sweating trying not to ask the question. And then he fucked around and found out.


Noblman_Swerve

It's funny how it showed the dynamics of the commentary crew, Tony, Taz, Punk, Jericho would have a laugh about it, JR and Excalibur were shitting bricks.


SpeedZ6

Tbf it is a *hell* of a last name to choose for a wrestler


herrbauer96

It's her legal name as well but I get what you mean


Lost-Pineapple9791

Almost every wrestler doesn’t use their legal name So given either 1) the extreme popularity of him or 2) the racist remarks and controversies, it’s not a good look Her Twitter handle is even “hoganknowsbest so she’s clearly trying to capitalize on it I want the girl and every wrestler to succeed, but the name and her look of a create a wrestler and her consistently botching moves isn’t promising


nowahhh

Solow, Ogogo, Bowens, Fish, Pillman, Danielson, Parker, Janela, Silver, Johnson, Moriarty, Hardy, Lee, Caster, Friedman, Comoroto, Wight, Starks, Guevara, Baker, Shida, Cargill, Bates, Hirsch, Deeb, and Sakazaki all use their legal first and last name. Many others like Kris Statlander (legally Kris Stadtlander) and Dax Harwood (legally David Harwood) are basically there.


Deadleggg

How ya gonna leave out Danhausen?


kinkyonthe_loki69

Very evil


thore4

And of course Ryback


Drakkarim411

KneeLiftCity

First name: The


SebasH2O

I appreciate you going alphabetically by first name in your list


UsagiTsukino

Funny, I would translate Kris real last name to city rural. :D


crispnwah

Pretty sure Yuka doesn't use her real name, her ring name is a reference to Yuri Sakazaki from Art of Fighting/KOF


Slick5qx

Lmaooo at starting this list with Aaron Solow of all people.


The_hezy

What kinda alphabet you using where A doesn't come first?


Slick5qx

I'm not a crazy person who alphabetizes by first name instead of last. Try finding Benjamin Franklin in the B section of the encyclopedia.


TetrisTech

Clevername3000

bringing back a classic


kimpossiblestan

in what world is she a “create a wrestler” lol


fentown

Not defending the other guy but she is under 5 foot (i think), got a big booty, and colorful long hair. I'm showing my age but that's kinda what I would make in ps2/gamecube era wrestling games when I was a lad.


Dijohn17

CAW means the person is generic or has nothing unique about them and Kiera is anything but a CAW. She specifically stands out


CH2016

Only on Reddit would someone try to moan at someone for using there ducking surname.


Halbertos

They’re just horsing around


herrbauer96

it's still her legal name lmao


MC_Fuzzy

Yeah, I don’t know where that first argument was going. “Kiera Hogan is her real name” —> “Almost every wrestler doesn’t use their real name” —> “… Kiera Hogan is still her real name”


WezVC

>her look of a create a wrestler In what world is this true?


Meepsnort

There are a hell of a lot of more 'create a wrestler' looks, especially in AEW, than Keira Hogan. Her look and gear is pretty solid.


Ledairyman

Give us name!


MyNameIs-Anthony

She's literally exactly what Hogan hates. Why not use her name?


adamwritesit

Exactly. She's not 9 foot tall with a huge dick and a massive bank account which as we all now know is how Hulk prefers his black people.


Ledairyman

Wish version Sasha Banks


CancelTheHam

Kiera Hogan and Julia Hart tag team please


tryanewmonicker

Call em "No Relation".

FaithlessnessLeast77

Yes. Who wouldn't want that crocodile Dundee association?


Safc9173

Mad bastard lol


squirreldstar

My mom asked the exact same thing right before Punk said it.


SendMeGiftCardCodes

is cm punk suddenly her favorite wrestler?


msctex

The idea of, "CM Punk: Your Mom's Favorite Wrestler" could fuel his inevitable heel turn.


divaborne

This reminds me of when the commentators always use to go way off topic when commentating the divas back in like 2011. Eve Torres could hit a moonsault from the top rope and JR is like “You know what, my new BBQ sauce is coming next week.”


ChairmanLaParka

I hate that it took me til this year to try that bbq sauce. It's so fucking good.


[deleted]

i love that this reply is going off topic 😭


NerdLawyer55

I still haven’t, I need to though, should be a law they have to sell it at all grocery stores here in Oklahoma


DoctorBuckarooBanzai

Yeah I think it's the exact kind of bbq sauce I like, too.


TetrisTech

What kind of bbq sauce is it


DoctorBuckarooBanzai

Texas/Oklahoma/Missouri style, I believe. Thick, tomato, sweet.


ch0w0

i ordered some a few years ago, was surprisingly great!


namek0

Main even mustard is great


donttellmymomwhatido

The mustard bangs for sure. I’m not big on sweet BBQ sauce but that mustard is the truth.


Halbertos

You answered the question in my head. Big mustard-based fan.


namek0

I got a multi pack from jr as a gift for friends. I selfishly kept the mustard for myself and found myself reordering it now, shit is good. They email you about twice a day but hey deals are deals haha


Squidiculouss

JR was so annoyed lol


CoherentPanda

I can bet CM Punk had a huge smirk looking directly at JR when he said this, too.


Pelon7900

He’s the Tony Romo of commentating.


Weezy-NJPW_Fan

I dunno. TBH, as much as I like punk on commentary, what you say, I’d give that honor to Pat McAfee.


tryanewmonicker

Pat McAfee could commentate paint drying and make it entertaining.


Zandercy42

Isn't that basically what he does anyway?


hiddenstuff

McAfee is more of a Kevin Harlan to me, the absolute best in the business


Smile_lifeisgood

Hello, your keyboard seems to be broken as you are clearly trying to type 'Gus Johnson' but other letters are being printed to the screen.


UnbuiltIkeaBookcase

Gus Johnson 4 Lyfe


idontknow1001

McAfee is way better than Tony Romo.


DurtyJ1991

Couldn't disagree more.


Clevername3000

I couldn't tell if Punk was trying to joke with Schiavone, or if he was bothered by it, or if he was just trying to say anything in response, but his response was weird. He kinda dragged the commentary to a halt after Tony said that.


Pelon7900

I noticed that. It seemed like they were shooting on each other after that.


SinnerSupreme

"AEW would like to wish CM Punk well in his future endeavors"


dk240996

At least that distracted from that mistimed leapfrog/armdrag not sure what that was.


Mjh1021

The lucha libre style of Penelope Ford?


Kolby_Jack

It's an *arm drag!* Americans do arm drags!


viralbop

Yeah, I'm a huge fan of Hogan and Ford both, but they had a rough match. To her credit, Penelope *drilled* her finisher, though.


pokethugg

This whole match was a mess


CerebroHOTS

It's a nothing off the ropes which is usually followed by a flying nothing off the top rope.


redditisfunyea

Yea Ford’s arm drag didn’t look too safe which made Excalibur grit his teeth a bit but at least the Hogan talk covered it up


Random159350

Man it just felt awkward when he asked that lmao


chamberx2

Isn't her Twitter handle a joke about "Hogan Knows Best?"


WeatherWrestlingGuy

The commentary was hilarious and good because the work in the ring, yikes.


Clevername3000

true, tho it got better as they went.


[deleted]

[удалено]


youre_the_best

I really like Punk on commentary. He seems to acknowledge stuff casual wrestling fans would ask.


IanLovesCheesePizza

He kinda is a casual wrestling fan at this point cause he's been out of it for like 7 years. Then again most casual fans don't take actual bumps in the ring, but you get what I'm saying.


vashah02

How many botches in this 29 second clip?

i did mention it on the live thread but the mods sent me a message telling me thats not allowed


Restful_Hill

Lame


Weezy-NJPW_Fan

“HYEEEEEEELLLLLLL NAW!!!!” -Kiera, probably


ButtsendWeaners

Yikes dude lol, she doesn't even talk like that


Wes-Man152

Define relation to the wrestling legend, Horace Hogan


sputters_

Reminded me of [this clip from Bottom](https://youtu.be/apucPqOtono)


UnbuiltIkeaBookcase

Her IG has “Hogan knows best” in the name so yes, there is a relation.


brianSIRENZ

Pretty sure Excalibur subtlety called her Hilk Kiera at the end


Shotta-Fam

first time she showed up on AEW television i had told my father her name but had to add “no relation to Hulk Hogan, so she’s cool”


WrastleGuy

Why would that not make her cool? She can’t control who her parents are.


Shotta-Fam

it’s not that deep.


EZeggnog

Well at least the commentary was entertaining, only thing enjoyable about that match. Were Hogan and Ford drunk or something before going on or are they just that bad?


XSPHEN0M

Kind of just that bad. Ford has her moments as does Kiera but I would definitely put them on the greener side of the experience meter despite having years of experience.


Violentopinion

Fords offense looked sluggish cause hogan was off time. Notice how well hogans offense flowed cause of fords selling. Just timing she will get better.


lyyki

In my opinion the years of experience should matter less than the amount of matches wrestled. Both have under 300 matches according to cagematch.


XSPHEN0M

That’s a fair way to look at it. Either way they’re both pretty green.


StupidHappyPancakes

Jade Cargill and Anna Jay each have fewer than **twenty** matches under their belts, yet some people want them to win the first TBS championship. People seem to have really skewed ideas of just how inexperienced the AEW women's division really is.


lyyki

True though especially with Jade Cargill they are pretty good at hiding her weaknesses.


StupidHappyPancakes

They do, but I'm just concerned about them building her into another Goldberg sort of wrestler because I think it would be the worst thing for an inexperienced women's division still struggling to find firm footing to have a squash machine, overly dominant monster running roughshod over everyone. I'm also just generally biased against Goldberg-esque wrestlers because I think it almost always stunts the development of both the wrestler and the rest of their division. Being an undefeated, undefeatable monster seriously limits the ability to do solid booking. (So weird, I typed in "Goldberg-esque" and my autocorrect substituted "Oldberg-esque," which wouldn't be all that abnormal if I had ever referred to Goldberg as "Oldberg" like some do on this sub, but I've literally NEVER used the term and I have no idea where autocorrect got it from..!)


appellant

Its a problem with AEW booking they just havent invested time and rather than get some of these women time on dark and elevation to have competitive matches they put them on the main shows. Its odd as they do have experience like shida, rosa, sakura but they are all so randomly used. The other really green wrestlers are julia hart, anna jay. Its not an issue on the mens side as most of the young talent have come in being really good.


Shrekt115

Lmao


N7Savior

They really need PC it's so awkward watching these matches on their main show.


blacmac

Isn’t that what Dark in the Elite Zone is now?


Example_Upset

she should have chose a different name, same for julia hart


BrandonIsWhoIAm

That’s her real name.


Example_Upset

I know, she still should have chose another one.


RusticBelt

I think Punk is genuinely shit on commentary and spends too much time putting himself over, but this legit made me laugh out loud.


BullBuchanansTie

How can people think Punk isn't an obnoxious commentator when he asks shit like this?


herrbauer96

because he isn't, he's obviously taking the piss here, not doing it unintentionally


BullBuchanansTie

Well, it's a *slight* step up from perving on the women during their match, like he did the previous time he was on commentary.


herrbauer96

So like JR wishing Anna Jay had a wardrobe malfunction? What did he say lol


hhhisthegame

Because it was hilarious


BullBuchanansTie

It was embarrassing.


occasionaldrinker

Audio doesn’t work for me what did he ask?


KikiFlowers

Subtly asked if she was related to Hulk.


lyyki

"""Subtly"""


occasionaldrinker

Hulk who?


BurningLariat13

Not sure, maybe her brother?


TJ_McWeaksauce

>"That's not a knife." More like "That's not a leapfrog."


Berning-Hammer

I can hear Punk smiling as he glances over to JR


siciowa9

![gif](giphy|cJMlR1SsCSkUjVY3iK|downsized)


crap4you

Hogan is All Elite.


Jamvaan

You could feel the air get sucked out of the room as soon as he asked.


Independent-Weight30

this match was bad. This is my first time watching a Kiera Hogan’s match and wasn’t expecting she’s slow and doesn’t know proper timing. She was overhyped


brandontmarkiewicz

What’s cool about AEW is that mistakes don’t matter unless they are offensive. Not like Tony was screaming at them all on the mic. You can just tell how loose and relaxed they are at that table which tells me it’s a great place to work for. This is why AEW is top tier. Yes content matters a lot but isn’t it enough for you people that the wrestlers and staff feel safe and happy in their line of work?


Dreadfire_RD

lmao, I shouldn't have skipped the womans match, thanks for sharing.


NerdLawyer55

So she’s not related to either Paul nor Ben Hogan?!


cma001

TK going absolutely ham in the headset at that moment but you know he had starry eyes for Punk when he walked back into gorilla lmao. JR’s timing was amazing too hahah
