AEW Rampage 8/27/2021 Review

This was the first taped episode of Rampage coming from the same arena that Dynamite this past Wednesday was broadcast from in UWM Panther Arena in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. That gave the episode a little less dynamic of a feeling but AEW is starting to ramp up their PPV for All Out on September 5th.

AEW Dynamite 8/25/2021 Review

Another Wednesday (actually Thursday for me) and you know what that means! Yes, jobberville is back. This was live from Milwaukee, Wisconsin at the UWM Panther Arena. I think this was one of the more interesting places for AEW to appear because now they’ve completely gone off their “safer” target markets into places that I’m not certain they’ve been to yet. So I will say that the crowd felt a little more tepid than the previous ones even though the show itself looked sold out. But I will add more to that later.

AEW Rampage 8/20/2021 Review

Set at the United Center in Chicago Illinois, this possibly was AEW’s biggest and most anticipated event. We’ve had some tremendous debuts but the one happening on this night will be talked about for years to come. Why? The return of CM Punk to pro-wrestling!

AEW Dynamite 8/18/2021 Review

This Dynamite came from Fertitta Center in Houston, Texas. Pretty hot crowd but I found the show very mixed in terms of the ups and downs. Too much schizoid nonsensical booking again but I’ll go into detail later towards the conclusion of the show for my overall thoughts.

AEW Rampage 8/13/2021 Review

Once again AEW returned to the Petersen Events Center in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania just after having their Dynamite show except this time AEW was debuting a new program called Rampage, which was a one hour live broadcast rather than their two hours. Done right after WWE Smackdown, Rampage had title matches as well as Mark Henry making his debut as an analyst. So many new things going on here.

NXT/HHH, Ric Flair to AEW, the Forbidden Door, AEW Ratings, etc. News Ponderings

There’s so much going on in pro-wrestling right now, I figured it might be time to do a non-review write up of what’s going on in American wrestling since I normally only reserve my thoughts for AEW Dynamite Reviews. Despite how I’m still not a fan of the current era of pro-wrestling, I am interested in what’s going on regarding pro-wrestling, which is why I wanted to put some thoughts down.

AEW Dynamite 8/11/2021 Review

Another Wednesday (actually Thursday as I’m writing this), another Dynamite show.  This was live at the Petersen Events Center in Pittsburgh, PA. I believe this might’ve been at a university minus a university type of crowd. Lots of yellow flags in the audience that night (mostly for Britt Baker). Don’t think this was a complete sell out, maybe 5000 from what I’ve read. But still pretty big for a non-WWE showing.

Is Pro-Wrestling Interesting Right Now?

While I’ve always been a fan of pro-wrestling since ’85, my love for it goes in waves where something might turn me off for a period before another thing reinvigorates my interest. In the past 10 years, I only would catch glimpses of it through YouTube and barely follow the results on news sites. I would say within the past 4-5 months, my interest has started to peak again as a result of numerous changes in the industry. So that begs the question: what exactly has caught my attention?
