  • AEW x NJPW Forbidden Door PPV 6/26/2022

    Live from the United Center in Chicago, Illinois. This was a new PPV introduced into the mix of AEW PPVs but with the added element of being a true cross-promotional event where they teamed up with New Japan Pro-Wrestling. While to some the idea of an actual cross promotional event between two of the biggest […]

  • AEW Dynamite:Road Rager 6/15/2022 Review

    This event came from the Chaifetz Arena in St. Louis, MO and seemed pretty hot as far as the crowd was concerned. However, to me the show was lukewarm at best in terms of presentation and I felt like the bad people were in charge again because this was a pure stinker.

  • AEW Double or Nothing 2022 PPV Review

    Coming from the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, AEW presented Double or Nothing for 2022. This was going to be one of their biggest PPVs ever, with a huge crowd of rabid fans and an extremely big card. It was not without controversy even before it started as MJF was reported to have ditched his […]

  • AEW Revolution 2022 Review

    This review is something I wanted to postpone but I know if I don’t do it now, it’ll never get done. Lately, I haven’t been reviewing AEW shows just because there hasn’t been anything really noteworthy outside of CM Punk and MJF segments for the most part while the rest of the shows have suffered […]

  • AEW Battle of the Belts 1/8/2021

    This show was a three match show that was supposed to harken back to the days of the Clash of Champions from WCW/NWA. It only lasted one hour and felt more like a house show than something where I would consider it a parallel in quality with the old Clash of Champions. None of the […]

  • AEW Dynamite 1/5/2021 Review

    Recently, my output for reviews for AEW have been slowing down. Part of that is because I’m trying to finish this novel I’m writing and I’ve overshot my self-imposed deadline of both November and December. But the other part is that I have been finding their recent shows draining and I simply repeat myself week-after-week […]

  • AEW Dynamite 12/22/2021 Review

    This week from the Greensboro Coliseum in North Carolina, AEW Dynamite made its debut as a special pre-Christmas show. During the week, they had David Crockett show up on one of the YouTube hype shows to talk about wrestling history in North Carolina, which shows a nice connection to AEW as they try to bring […]

  • AEW Dynamite 12/15/2021 Winter is Coming Review

    From the Curtis Cullwell Center in Texas, AEW Dynamite’s special Winter is Coming event was something else but mostly for the first match on the card. That match was the highly anticipated Hangman Adam Page vs Bryan Danielson for the AEW World Title. There were three other matches on the card, two of which had […]

  • AEW Rampage 12/3/2021 Review

    Continuing at the Duluth’s Gas South Arena in Atlanta, Georgia, Rampage was pretty much a two match show. I’ll get into the middle match briefly because it was brief but this show for me wasn’t bad, although the main event did get altered.

  • AEW Dynamite 12/1/2021 Review

    Coming from the Gas South Arena in Duluth, GA, this was going to be a kind of homecoming for Cody Rhodes. But given his reactions in recent months, one would wonder if his return really would be considered a homecoming or an awakening? Also, Jim Ross was out as a result of his chemo treatment […]
