When Orange Cassidy becomes one of the hottest acts on TV, and Jericho suddenly does a month-long program with him, beating him up on multiple shows and only loses the blow-off, which was essentially to fall into juice- not a pinfall loss.
MJF gets hotter and hotter, and so they do a MONTHS-long “Pinnacle/Jericho” feud, which ends up all over TV. Jericho wins challenge after challenge, takes a big stunt-bump on TV, and then wins the blow-off, taking only a single big loss.
Eddie Kingston gets more and more over, and sure enough he feuds with Jericho. Then the Blackpool Combat Club forms as the most talked-about thing in AEW, and magically Jericho does a heel turn and now they're his primary feud, and he gets a bunch of wins over
them (including his win back over Eddie).
Now, Jericho looks at the lights a lot more than, say, HHH did when he was leeching off of the hot acts… but it's hard for me not to notice this now. Every single act that gets incredibly over somehow has Jericho attached to them at some point, and doesn't
always look better for it, and Jericho ends up all over TV.
What do you think? Has he been taking the proper lessons from his time under HHH's heel?
Might as well learn from the best.
So with the shocking news about Jarrett and wwe, I can’t help but remember the debacle when he briefly returned to Impact wrestling to try and merge it with Global Force Gold ballpark minor league wrestling only for that to fall apart. I believe his wwe tenure was actually shorter than that failed impact run.
Is it possible that there are some behind the scenes issues we weren’t aware of because I don’t see Jarrett leaving so abruptly considering how excited he was to be back in the big leagues.
Or does Jarrett now view himself as a hot young free agent because of the flair match and working a few indie shows and he’s looking to capitalize on that because wwe might not have allowed it?
It’s just a really weird situation…
AEW does so much right, yet I am continually let down by how their Champs are Booker after the big chase for the title.
He ate the Hogan leg drop that shocked they world. His joining the nWo never made much sense nor much of an impact.
What could have made this nonsense better?
I could have sworn you did, but I couldn't find in your archives. If
not, I wouldn't mind seeing a review sometime.
So, what gives?
I mean, Scorp is one of the few guys in AEW that can say he has held multiple championships (tag and TNT). They even plugged his podcast (which was a load of nothing) at one point. Now it's like he just vanished from the roster. Has TK given up on him as a
star? Is he the most disappointing AEW member that got pushed and failed? And if so, was it because of his disaster of the TNT reign or was he never that good to justify the push to begin with?
Thanks as always for your reviews.
Okada & Osprey are meeting for finals of a grueling tournament, Okada hits a neck-breaker minutes in and thinks that's going to win him the trophy.
WWE's going for the “shocked look” on a 2 count that no one was buying.
The biggest example for me though is UT/Michaels HITC. This match was built on UT finally getting his hands on Shawn to beat him senseless from all over. Minutes in he casually hits a clothesline and goes for the pin for a meaningless 1-count.
