  • 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 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 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 […]

  • AEW Dynamite 11/24/2021 Review

    Coming from the Wintrust Arena in Chicago, IL, Dynamite was in CM Punk’s hometown the night before Thanksgiving Day. Generally, in my experience the vast majority of pro-wrestling shows done before a major holiday end up becoming a parody of itself just due to the inevitable involvement of some angle to pull in the holiday […]

  • AEW Dynamite 11/10/2021 Review

    Brought to you from the Indiana Farmer’s Coliseum in Indianapolis, Indiana, this was the Dynamite go home show before Full Gear this Saturday. There is still one more major show before Full Gear with Friday’s live Rampage but we’ll talk about that later. This show felt a lot more exciting than usual and there were […]

  • AEW Dynamite 11/3/2021 Review

    Dynamite came from Independence, MO at the Cable Dahmer Arena. Not a huge arena from what I could tell (5k roughly) but it looked pretty packed and seemed like the first time, which I know of at least, for AEW doing a show there. The show had a different feeling mostly because of the recent […]

  • AEW Dynamite 10/27/2021 Review

    Another AEW Dynamite hailing from Agganis Arena in Boston, MA, which I think is the first time AEW has been to Boston. JR mentioned that fans had purchased their tickets from a while back and because of the pandemic, had been waiting for quite some time. The building was sold out and they even opened […]

  • AEW Dynamite 10/23/2021 Review

    This show hailed from Addition Financial Arena in Orlando, FL and was pretty packed and hot for AEW. This is the last live Saturday night show for Dynamite and came before Impact’s Bound for Glory PPV. So tons of wrestling this night with the oddity being that Christian Cage was on the other show. However, […]
