Anybody else really annoyed that they wanna stab people with chairs now? Is it that bad to hit them in the back with one? Stabbing them with it looks so dumb.

I really hate how Jericho's group is acting like a bunch of immature idiots like DX. Very fresh idea you got there.


It already is. The crowd is always trying to get themselves over and they think they're smart because they see comedy wrestling and know it's fake. Basically the only people that watch wrestling are marks. Can't wait until the ratings come in for this weeks episode and see it dropped again.
What did I say. Wrestling fans hate everything the second it becomes popular 😂

I can't, I just can't watch any more matches with Aubrey Edwards as the ref. This bitch's constant selling of EVERY SINGLE HIT is just too annoying and it's driving me crazy.
Probably learned from Kenny Olivia LOL.

Ya she needs to dial it down. I get it that she couldn't make the WWE so Cody is happy to make her front and center, but stop trying to get yourself over and distracting from the match.

I have to say Strong has really grown these last few months. He is slowly becoming the MVP of NXT. Putting the NA title on him was smart. Just goes out there and puts out great matches with anyone.

He's been great in the ring for a long time. Never seemed to develop much in the way of presence or mic skills though. I'm pretty sure he's going to be an Ohno and stay in nxt for the rest of his career. Fun guy to watch for sure.

He isn't great on the mic, but he has gotten better and I am really liking his character lately. Just coming off as a jock douche since winning the title.

Wrestling fans hate everything. Give it a few weeks and AEW will be a “horrible show for smarks” 🙄

Impact is respectable, but it has the same issue NXT has. Compared to AEW it feels very small.
Im already there on AEW. The segment with Jericho and Rhodes was excellent. The majority of the roster and the wrestling is trash though. Those tag matches were f’n god awful. What are the rules supposed to be? I could tell Jim Ross was annoyed too.

To Corny’s credit, NWA Powerrr is 10x better than AEW in terms of wrestling quality.

That last show was pretty weak though. I feel like the gimmick commercials will get old fast and there are way too many Price is Right interviews.

Worst subreddit I've ever interacted with. Try making a thoroughly detailed post explaining why you dislike Aubrey Edwards or Kofi's title reign and see how many people downvote you for simply disagreeing lol. Almost as much of a bitchy SJW hotbed as ResetEra

Yeah, it's awful. I really hate what they do about Corny though.

Corny says something good about AEW: *crickets*
Corny says some 15 year old midget shouldn't be wrestling because it's not believable: *autistic screeching*

Corny says he likes nyla rose and had no idea she wasn't born as a woman: *crickets but with a tumbleweed this time*
Corny says some negative about 98lb schoolgirl reeeeehoOooOoooo going over nyla: HE'S FUCKING RACIST AND SEXIST FUCKING CONSERVATIVE OLD FUCKING SOUTHERN HICK BOOMER

-- A writeup in this week's edition of the Wrestling Observer Newsletter sheds new light on the extent of WWE's TV woes in the UK.

Raw and SmackDown's British numbers aren't always circulated in wrestling media so this makes for some interesting reading. Per the report, the 14 October Raw drew 38,000, down 10,000 from the previous week's show featuring Tyson Fury, who is a huge star in his home country. The 18 October SmackDown compelled 23,000 to tune in. Then, on 21 October, Raw drew just 3,000 viewers.

3,000. That is not an error.

This number is so low that Meltzer claims "people thought it was a computer glitch," but the data has since been confirmed legitimate. Naturally, people within WWE and Sky (their broadcaster) are stunned.

For context, Impact wrestling's 18 October episode had 77,000 viewers in the United Kingdom, which is approximately ten times their usual average in the US. AEW Dynamite, meanwhile, did a whopping 232,000 on ITV on 14 October.

They pretty much sum up my problems with AEW on Wednesday.

I hope it's true that AEW management is trying to get that shit under control because as of right now they're not going to keep me around for long. Garbage indie wrestling doesn't go over as well in prime time.

Cornette takes are often predictable garbage.

What's popular? AEW really isn't and comedy wrestling is fucking garbage that nobody watches for. Oh and btw ratings dropped again sweetie :messenger_blowing_kiss::messenger_blowing_kiss:
What are the ratings of NWA Powerrr?

Hmmm brap brap hates almost all wrestling, and Nintendo, and claims to agree with Crazy Corny....Jim, is that you? it's really the only explanation left at this point
  1. Corny is great when he's not ranting about glumpf and republicans for 30 mins straight
  2. I don't hate nintendo and I can take pics of my donkey kong banana and nintendo boxers to prove it
I wonder if he's a fan of Marko Stunt or Vince Russo.
Me or corny? I hate marko stunt and vince russo comes off as mentally disabled. I did like when he was at WWF and they had him under control. Everything else he's been associated with has been awful. Dat judy bagwell on a pole match doe 👀

How can anyone hate Jim Cornette. Dude is on point about so many things. He’s also given us absolute gems in mud-show, outlaw wrestling and cosplay wrestlers.

Legend.
