    The Kenny on the phone segments are hilarious

    My bad fam, I feel like I've let y'all down by not keeping up with this thread...I wasn't on the board at all the last month or so....

    I am a little surprised, though, to see everyone has been a little down on AEW while I was gone. While maybe they haven't done anything huge lately...they are still plugging along quite nicely putting together a really good stretch of shows after the 'Dark Order destroys everyone' segment that closed out 2019.

    It seems like they have a new focus of advancing their main feuds/storylines of Cody vs MJF, Jericho vs Mox, and Hangman vs Elite while continuing to slowly build and get over the young guys like Darby, Jungle Boy, Sammy Guvera (who is honestly one my favorites in the whole company right now), and PAC.

    I think they're doing really well! I'm very curious to see when they put the extra show on and how it does. On one hand it shouldn't draw ratings as high as Dynamite, but on the other hand it probably won't go head to head with a WWE show so it might draw about the same.

    This week's episode from the Jericho cruise looked f--king awesome...I love seeing wrestling shows in unique venues.

    So this has been a debate on the f4w forum...do you guys think AEW should turn Hangman heel or keep him face?

    Clearly they were/are in the process of turning him by first tagging with Kenny, then eventually turning on him. But lately he has started to get huge as a face with this new beer gimmick that it might be mistake to continue on the path to turning him heel. He is arguably the most popular guy in the company right now after Cody and Moxley.

    What do you guys think? @NJPWBros
    P.S. a year later and still no AEW tag I've been asking for :snoop:

    I think you have to keep him as a face for now at least, he could always turn on The Elite by doing some sort of "You guys weren't there for me when I needed you" story arc in regards to the drinking problem, but I still don't think that would necessarily make him a heel

    I agree.

    I also wonder, with it being confirmed now that Marty was supposed to be revealed as the leader of the Dark Order....if they start this Hangman turn with the end point of him joining Marty and the Dark Order which would have worked perfectly with the direction you said. Page is pissed The Elite weren’t there for him and Marty is pissed they left him in a dying company.

    Hype for Jeff Cobb! Apparently he's only there for a few dates but I'd love to see it work in to something more.

    Going to the St. Louis Dynamite in April, pretty pumped!

    That's dope man! I got sick of them not coming to L.A or Cali in general, so I got tickets for Double or Nothing 2 in Vegas! I got super lucky, because the digital waiting room thing was madness, and someone got floor seats with the take home chairs and shit...I'm way stoked! My wife and I are gonna make a weekend of it since its Memorial Day weekend.

    Yeah I wasn't expecting to drop over $700 on 2 tickets but they were going so fast that when those popped up, after there had been nothing but shitty seats available, I jumped on them.

    I'm a little worried because I'm in the 6th row on the floor, so I hope seeing won't be a pain in the ass. That's usually about where I end up sitting at PWG shows and it can be hard seeing around people when your all sitting floor level. I usually like to sit in like the 5th row of the seats that start to raise up so your above all the floor seats and just slightly above the ring (which are less expensive too) but I had to get what's available

    Revolution is going to be so badass. Hate that I'm missing it live, but Rhino is going to be at my local indy fed so I'm going to that.

    Only saw the iron man match so far from last nights show but damn it was a great match, definitely recommend if you missed it.

    Not sure if I’m gonna order the PPV this weekend or not, might just hope to find a stream.
