I heard Sasha hurt her back, that's a career shortening injury (and they say its fake) IDK if her small frame hurts or helps her with that.

The Kabuki's getting a victory over BL and CF is BIG imo. More mist :shock:

The HIAC finish i said stunk....nbd though, im not going to cry or cancel a subscription.

Jon Moxley Beats Chris Jericho to Win AEW World Championship at Revolution 2020

Mike Chiari February 29, 2020

https://bleacherreport.com/articles/2876315-jon-moxley-beats-chris-jericho-to-win-aew-world-championship-at-revolution-2020

Jon Moxley beat Chris Jericho at AEW Revolution in Chicago on Saturday to become the second AEW world champion in the company's brief history.

Moxley hit Jericho with a Paradigm Shift to take the belt.

The pair have been at each other's throats for the past few months, and Moxley finally got his chance to go one-on-one with the leader of The Inner Circle with the AEW world title on the line at Revolution.

When it became clear shortly after Full Gear on November 9 that Moxley had his sights set on the AEW World Championship, Jericho attempted to befriend him and essentially convince him not to challenge for the title.

Jericho offered Moxley a spot in The Inner Circle and a new car, and it initially looked as though he would accept after he considered the invite for a few weeks.

After Moxley said he was in, though, he hit Le Champion in the head with a champagne bottle and ran out of the ring before the rest of The Inner Circle could get to him.

That made Moxley public enemy No. 1 in the eyes of Jericho and The Inner Circle, especially after he beat Sammy Guevara for the right to fight for the AEW World Championship No. 1 contendership.

Jericho tried to put Moxley out of commission by taking a spike off his jacket and sticking it in his eye. That forced Moxley to wear a bandage and a patch over his eye, but it didn't stop him from beating PAC on Jericho's cruise on January 22 to become No. 1 contender.

Moxley even got some measure of revenge a couple of weeks ago when he poked the eye of Inner Circle member Santana with a car key and forced him to wear a patch as well.

With Moxley mowing down the stable and getting closer to Jericho, Le Champion enlisted services of free-agent wrestler Jeff Cobb, who attacked Moxley after he beat Santana and then faced him the following week on Dynamite.

Since Moxley is something of a lone wolf and was going up against an entire stable led by Jericho, the odds were very much stacked against the challenger entering Revolution.

Moxley is used to overcoming the odds, though, and he did precisely that to end Jericho's nearly 200-day title reign Saturday.

Since Jericho is scheduled to tour with his band, Fozzy, beginning in April, it made sense to take the title off him, and the decision may see him take a break from AEW programming soon.

Pro Wrestling in Empty Arenas Is the Weirdest Show on Earth
By Sean T. Collins

https://www.vulture.com/2020/03/pro-wrestling-no-audience-coronavirus.html

Image

Are professional wrestlers just the world’s most muscular theater kids? To quote wrestling legend “Stone Cold” Steve Austin, who appeared on last night’s episode of WWE’s Monday Night Raw: Hell yeah.

Broadcast live without an audience for the first time in history, both Monday Night Raw on the USA Network and last Friday’s episode of Smackdown on Fox stripped wrestling down to its bare essentials: a ring, a microphone, and wrestlers to use both. The result was less like the WWE’s usual played-to-the-rafters gladiatorial spectacle and more like tech week for a black-box production. It showcased the performers at their weirdest, wildest, and most, well, theatrical.

On Friday’s episode of Smackdown, things got downright goofy. That tone was set by wrestler-turned-company-executive (and son-in-law of head honcho Vince McMahon) Paul “Triple H” Levesque, who special-guested on the commentary team and appeared to be having the time of his life. Trips, as he’s affectionately known by wrestling smarks, made jokes about the unusual setup: When heel wrestler Asuka waltzed into the room to distract her rivals during a match, he responded by saying, “She blended in with the crowd! I never saw her coming!” He cracked wise about his recent title change, rumored to be a step down in the company hierarchy, by saying, “I’m the only man in the history of the world that can get demoted and get busier.” He even broke kayfabe, the once-sacred suspension of disbelief that’s still almost always adhered to during the broadcasts themselves, by referring to the show’s multiple drafts. (“Real” sporting events, needless to say, aren’t scripted.)

The wrestlers followed suit. Bayley, the dastardly women’s champion, and her buddy Sasha Banks worked the nonexistent crowd as they walked to the ring. Nikki Cross tried to get a crowd chant going. The Miz and John Morrison used the absence of an audience to talk themselves up without the risk of getting booed. (Triple H’s deadpan response: “It’s amazing how comfortable Miz and Morrison are without crowd noise. It’s like it happens all the time.”)

The episode culminated in the already-legendary faceoff between semiretired babyface turned bonafide Hollywood star John Cena and his current rival, demented children’s show host (yes, you read that correctly) Bray Wyatt. Without the roar of the crowd yay-ing and booing behind it, the clash between Cena’s steely hip-hop Superman persona and Wyatt’s Joker-fied madness felt uncomfortably intimate, which to be honest is exactly the way it should feel.

I have been watching Raw and Smackdown. Its weird, I enjoy the matches bell to bell. Promos are awkward and imo shouldn't be delivered in a ring in an empty room. Entrances are a waste for most. Commentary is on the comical side, I do enjoy the special guests.

Standouts during this are Cesaro, Bryan, Zayne and Asuka .
It sure is weird.

WrestleMania ...IDK man, i'll be watching .

It is VERY weird, and I agree WWE needs to change the promo delivery. They seem to be trying to do the same promos they always have to hype the crowd. Which is just so strange when there is no crowd.

This seems to be reserved for WWE as AEW seems to have absolutely no issues with this. I'm very glad to have AEW during this time when WWE could easily claim this is just such new territory it has to be awkward to some degree. NOT SO! If anything AEW has thrived on this new, strange, format. Instead of constantly recapping PPVs, as WWE does every single week, they have added better and more involved promos. They also put other wrestlers ringside to take add a little action to the side which helps immensely. This is why competition in the wrestling world is so important, keeps everyone on their toes.

Exclusive: Update On State Of Georgia Intervening At AEW Tapings, Tony Khan Comments
By Nick Hausman | April 03, 2020

https://www.wrestlinginc.com/news/2020/04/exclusive-update-on-state-of-georgia-intervening-in-aew-668737/

As previously reported, this week's AEW Dynamite tapings took place from QT Marshall's Gym in Norcross, GA.

Wrestling Inc. reported that state of Georgia officials had stopped by AEW's tapings on Thursday.

From what we were told, the officials initially attempted to shut down the tapings before being provided with paperwork that allowed AEW to move forward. Apparently AEW had been approved to move forward before Georgia's Governor Brian Kemp issued his "shelter in place order", which officially goes into place today at 6 pm.

Since our reporting, AEW President Tony Khan has reached out to us to provide clarity on the situation.

Khan explained to us that the official who stopped by was a local Georgia code enforcement official. They were there to ensure that everything was as agreed to in the permits AEW had obtained. Khan stated that it was just a routine check-in like any other week, and everything was fine on both sides.

Stay with Wrestling Inc. for all the latest regarding AEW's TV tapings during the coronvarius pandemic.
