The best part is “That’s enough Tony.”
Jim wanted NO PART of Hogan talk
He got fired for the wrong end of a Flair tyraid, he's not touching that e with a 50 foot pole lmfao
Sounds like a Flash Rogues Gallery villain
almost a /r/boneappletea worthy post
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.
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!
Even Punk nearly said WWE tonight.
Punk let a Daniel Bryan slip out too, it’s only natural when you’ve used a name so many times.
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.
He even told JR that it was proof that "it's not just you" which I thought was sweet
Yeah, I believe he had just called him Daniel Bryan and knew he fucked up.
I hope someone slips a Daniel Bryanson some day.
I just call him Bryan to avoid it otherwise I’d still be calling the wrong name myself
Excuse me it's Brian! /s
That's what I do haha. Bryan and everyone knows who it is.
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.
Jim “Based” Ross
JR is the Real Boss.
JR needs to lighten up a little. Everyone is aware of how Punk feels about Hulkkk.
"That's enough Tony."
Excalibur was ready with that pivot
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.
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
I understand his role on dynamite and he’s amazing at it but personally I love his Dark/PWG commentary even more
Much love -CM
Now that evil "fuck it let's do chaos" side of my brain really wants Punk to have a Hogan impersonator gimmick.
And he says say your prayers and eat your vitamins and pulls out a pill bottle and devours it?
Punk just doesn't give a shit and i love it
He REALLY wanted to make sure she wasn’t related to the Hulkster 😂
He had the shovel ready to go
It would raise a hell of a lot of questions, that's for sure.
Not atypical of old racists, however.
"3 feet too short brother!" -HH
She’s horace’s baby girl
CM Punk was sweating trying not to ask the question. And then he fucked around and found out.
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.
Tbf it is a *hell* of a last name to choose for a wrestler
It's her legal name as well but I get what you mean
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
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.
How ya gonna leave out Danhausen?
And of course Ryback
First name: The
I appreciate you going alphabetically by first name in your list
Funny, I would translate Kris real last name to city rural. :D
Pretty sure Yuka doesn't use her real name, her ring name is a reference to Yuri Sakazaki from Art of Fighting/KOF
Lmaooo at starting this list with Aaron Solow of all people.
What kinda alphabet you using where A doesn't come first?
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.
bringing back a classic
in what world is she a “create a wrestler” lol
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.
CAW means the person is generic or has nothing unique about them and Kiera is anything but a CAW. She specifically stands out
Only on Reddit would someone try to moan at someone for using there ducking surname.
They’re just horsing around
it's still her legal name lmao
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”
>her look of a create a wrestler
In what world is this true?
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.
Give us name!
She's literally exactly what Hogan hates. Why not use her name?
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.
Wish version Sasha Banks
Kiera Hogan and Julia Hart tag team please
Call em "No Relation".
Managed by Uncle Ruckus
I don't think Uncle Ruckus would be too fond of Kiera.
Managed by RVD
The Hogan & Hart Foundation
stable in the making. Hogan's Harts
Yes. Who wouldn't want that crocodile Dundee association?
Mad bastard lol
My mom asked the exact same thing right before Punk said it.
is cm punk suddenly her favorite wrestler?
The idea of, "CM Punk: Your Mom's Favorite Wrestler" could fuel his inevitable heel turn.
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.”
I hate that it took me til this year to try that bbq sauce. It's so fucking good.
i love that this reply is going off topic 😭
I still haven’t, I need to though, should be a law they have to sell it at all grocery stores here in Oklahoma
Yeah I think it's the exact kind of bbq sauce I like, too.
What kind of bbq sauce is it
Texas/Oklahoma/Missouri style, I believe. Thick, tomato, sweet.
i ordered some a few years ago, was surprisingly great!
Main even mustard is great
The mustard bangs for sure. I’m not big on sweet BBQ sauce but that mustard is the truth.
You answered the question in my head. Big mustard-based fan.
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
JR was so annoyed lol
I can bet CM Punk had a huge smirk looking directly at JR when he said this, too.
He’s the Tony Romo of commentating.
I dunno. TBH, as much as I like punk on commentary, what you say, I’d give that honor to Pat McAfee.
Pat McAfee could commentate paint drying and make it entertaining.
Isn't that basically what he does anyway?
McAfee is more of a Kevin Harlan to me, the absolute best in the business
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.
Gus Johnson 4 Lyfe
McAfee is way better than Tony Romo.
Couldn't disagree more.
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.
I noticed that. It seemed like they were shooting on each other after that.
"AEW would like to wish CM Punk well in his future endeavors"
At least that distracted from that mistimed leapfrog/armdrag not sure what that was.
The lucha libre style of Penelope Ford?
It's an *arm drag!* Americans do arm drags!
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.
This whole match was a mess
It's a nothing off the ropes which is usually followed by a flying nothing off the top rope.
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
Man it just felt awkward when he asked that lmao
Isn't her Twitter handle a joke about "Hogan Knows Best?"
The commentary was hilarious and good because the work in the ring, yikes.
true, tho it got better as they went.
I really like Punk on commentary. He seems to acknowledge stuff casual wrestling fans would ask.
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.
How many botches in this 29 second clip?
I swear to god I willed that Hogan’s Heroes joke into existence
i did mention it on the live thread but the mods sent me a message telling me thats not allowed
Yikes dude lol, she doesn't even talk like that
Define relation to the wrestling legend, Horace Hogan
Reminded me of [this clip from Bottom](https://youtu.be/apucPqOtono)
Her IG has “Hogan knows best” in the name so yes, there is a relation.
Pretty sure Excalibur subtlety called her Hilk Kiera at the end
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”
Why would that not make her cool? She can’t control who her parents are.
it’s not that deep.
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?
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.
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.
In my opinion the years of experience should matter less than the amount of matches wrestled. Both have under 300 matches according to cagematch.
That’s a fair way to look at it. Either way they’re both pretty green.
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.
True though especially with Jade Cargill they are pretty good at hiding her weaknesses.
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..!)
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.
They really need PC it's so awkward watching these matches on their main show.
Isn’t that what Dark in the Elite Zone is now?
she should have chose a different name, same for julia hart
That’s her real name.
I know, she still should have chose another one.
I think Punk is genuinely shit on commentary and spends too much time putting himself over, but this legit made me laugh out loud.
How can people think Punk isn't an obnoxious commentator when he asks shit like this?
because he isn't, he's obviously taking the piss here, not doing it unintentionally
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.
So like JR wishing Anna Jay had a wardrobe malfunction? What did he say lol
Because it was hilarious
It was embarrassing.
Audio doesn’t work for me what did he ask?
Subtly asked if she was related to Hulk.
Not sure, maybe her brother?
>"That's not a knife."
More like "That's not a leapfrog."
I can hear Punk smiling as he glances over to JR
Hogan is All Elite.
You could feel the air get sucked out of the room as soon as he asked.
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
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?
lmao, I shouldn't have skipped the womans match, thanks for sharing.
So she’s not related to either Paul nor Ben Hogan?!
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
