    Aye they've had their downs in the last two years, but this is the first time I've properly lost interest.

    It's an easy fix as well. Bar Rosa, who deserves more time and Jade, the rest of the champions need to drop it yesterday.

    Hangman - Give it to Punk, easy fix
    Jurassic Express - Drop it to FTR, will make the titles important again
    Scorpio Sky - Drop it to Starks, who is better in every way, or even one of Moxley/Bryan, as they'll elevate the title massively.

    They also need to stop signing people, the Roster is very bloated.

    They will continue to sign people as Tony Khan is a basically a child given money to throw at his fantasy project. They had a large but not to large roster where everyone was over, now it's just bloated and they don't know what to do. I don't think I really saw the point in people like Lee coming in. WWE let wrestlers go as they had a bloated roster, now AEW does.
    Also when you start a promotion I think its easy to keep it fresh, especially when at the start they had enough names who built careers elsewhere like Omega, Jericho, Bucks and Cody. They could use them as people to focus on and build others. Now it's becoming tough.

    This stuff with MJF is nuts, apparently he was close to no-showing last nights event, and had booked a flight out of Vegas prior to the match.

    It's MJF, so there's a good chance this is a work, but he did no-show a signing event earlier, and there's been a lot of rumours he's unhappy in AEW. Would be a massive loss if he left.

    So AEW making interim champion as weird as possible. Instead of using the rankings of 1 vs 2, they made Moxley go from 4 to 1 in the rankings for no real reason, have him face a winner of a battle royal and then that person face Tanahashi.

    Aye they're bad for overcomplicating things, my biggest gripe with them. If punk is out long term just have him drop the title then win it back once he's fit.

    Interim title makes sense since they have the rankings like a real sport as boxing and mma use interim.it also allows an instant feud when punk is back. I think they should use it to see how someone like Wardlow can handle the top.

    So Vinny Mac sagged an employee then put her salary up to 200k, handed her to be shaggers by Jonny Ace. That part is strange as rumours are McMahon hates tag teams. Then pays her a $3m nda. Apparently an internal investigation found a lot more of this *.
    This explains Stephanie taking a leave of absence as the board announced the investigation in April and she didn't want to be involved in the backlash.
    Also Kevin Dunne, a board member, sold $1.5m worth of shares in May knowing that they would flop now and also having a say on how in the investigation went. So he could be in a lot of trouble for insider trading.

    Even for him, genuinely canny believe he done that last night.

    Seen that he was advertised to be appearing and assumed it’d be a prerecorded statement or something.

    Doing his usual big * grin and swagger while the fans sing his song and cheer him to *.

    Mental.

    I saw a twitter post. He was trying to rally the fans, and the people who buy tickets to wwe don't care about all the * they've done over the years. Type of person who cheers him because he's getting his end away at 76.

    It was completely bizarre. Nothing should surprise me with him and WWE but I’m surprised FOX or whoever it is that airs it in America didn’t have a word.

    Unless they did maybe.

    Been rumours for a couple of years he’s wanting to sell so maybe this is just him going out in his style.

    It would have gained viewers I bet so no surprise that they didn't give a *.

    I don't think this is him bowing out really. He has put his daughter in his position to basically say "how could we treat female employees like that? Have you seen our ceo is a woman"

    Only if your Vince McMahon.
    She’s scary looking, looks like she'd stab you then cut your * off for good measure.

    Same with that Janine from EastEnders from years back (probably killed off now) you'd wake up with lightbulbs up your * and three * holes but you still would.

    Only if it’s from the days when HHH roofied and married her in Vegas on her hen night.

    She’s a bit manly now.

    I genuinely dunno how I feel about the whole MJF thing. I look forward to seeing and hearing him and there's a lot of truth in what he says but I look forward to his segments and promos more than I would an actual match and I'd actually prefer to see some of the ex WWE guys in a match over him. Danielson, Miro and Malakai defo.
    Plus if he jumped ship to WWE, I think they would waste everything good about him, probably have him dancing with divas or in the 24/7 title scene after 6 months.
