  • Aliens: The Perfect Movie or Inherently Flawed?

    Every year, I watch the classic James Cameron movie Aliens as a sort of nod towards reminding myself why I got into creative writing in the first place. Also, it’s simply one of the best movies of all time and possibly my favorite. However, on this viewing, a few things stuck out to me that […]

  • AEW Dynamite Grand Slam 9/21/2022 Review

    Once again, AEW arrived at the Arthur Ashe Stadium in Queens New York. Recently, after the CM Punk incident, I’ve been reluctant to perform any reviews on AEW’s shows as I’ve felt that they’ve mostly been subpar and my interest has gradually tanked. That said, I did think this was a show worth writing about […]

  • AEW All Out Out 2022 PPV Review

    Recently, I decided to curb my reveiws of AEW’s shows just because they’ve been a mixed bag and the direction has been quite erratic. While I will address the post media scrum later on in this review, I decided to run down the show along with their pre-show. It’s a long one so I’ll try […]

  • AEW Dynamite Quake By The Lake 8/10/2022 Review

    The last few weeks of AEW have been quite wretched. I wasn’t all that interested in tonight’s show with the exception of one match. But the first thign I noticed was that the show was at a pretty decent sized arena where it was broadcast from the Target Center in Minneapolis, MI. The Target Center […]

  • AEW Dynamite Fight for the Fallen 7/27/2022 Review

    AEW Dynamite was broadcast from the DCU Center in Worcester, MA. After last week’s fiasco of a show, the announcement of Bryan Danielson’s return felt like a warm welcome but my expectations in general for the AEW product has been pretty low. Quite honestly, I’m far more interested in the coming months of the WWE […]

  • AEW Dynamite 7/6/2022 Review

    From the Blue Cross Arena at the War Memorial in Rochester, NY, we have AEW Dynamite for 7/6/2022. Quite honestly, I severely dreaded writing anything because virtually the whole show was unwatchable except a single segment. But I figured I might as well write something down because I doubt few people online are going to […]

  • AEW Dynamite 6/29/2022 Review

    From the Little Caesars Arena in Detroit Michigan, this was a special Dynamite in that it was themed Blood & Guts for the War Games-like cage match for the actual main event of the show. Much of the show had a different vibe from a normal AEW Dynamite as the real reason to have watched […]

  • 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 […]
