yeah, that was pretty great. didn't feel three+ hours long.
I could watch that tag team match at 0.25x speed and still not catch everything, it was full on cirque de soleil.
I think it's one of Darby Allin or Sammy Guevara in the next ppv title match against Moxley. Their match was one of those where it didn't matter who won; the fans won. Just great to watch. Darby fighting Jericho while handcuffed is one of the most amazing things I've ever seen and of course he's a Seattle guy who got his start in our local promotions so I have to pull for him.
Love that MJF defeated Cody, Cody is like the Charlie Brown of this promotion, he is one of the stars and he gets a lot of love from the camera but he just can't. kick. the. football. Great role for a management wrestler IMO. Wonder what's next for that storyline? They had it at a full boil with all the stipulations, can you crank up the heat any higher or do you backburner it and simmer?
Orange Cassidy, yeah, I'm a fan. what a goddamn crazy art form when someone can get over by putting their hands in their pockets.
Was disappointed with the women's match, I'll mark out for anyone billed from space and I thought Kris Statlander had moves ... but maybe she needs a smaller opponent to look her best? Match didn't really get off the ground.
Also a bit disappointed in the title match, I am pretty new to wrestling but Jericho has always struck me as someone who is not currently a great wrestler but who has great matches nonetheless. I think plodding is a good way to put this. Would love to see the Inner Circle be all about grooming Sammy Guevara to be El Campeón now, with Jericho as his coach/valet because damn Jericho can rock a mic.
Missed the opening Jake Hager / Dustin match because of traffic and coronavirus panic buying at the grocery store ... was curious to see it because Hager was the Roman Reigns of Lucha Underground, a guy you hated seeing good wrestlers lose to. I think AEW uses him really well as an attack goon and wanted to see if he'd leveled up since LU ended.
