    Wow you don't realize how annoying (and usually unnecessary) the "this is awesome" chants are until you watch nothing but NJPW for a month and a half and then jump back in to the WWE product lol. The crowd really started chanting "This is awesome" during Becky vs Natalya...because Natalya reversed a sharpshooter?

    The “Holy Shit!” chants get pretty annoying too.

    The "you still got it" chants for Trish were appropriate though, in more ways than one

    This is a first but I think SummerSlam was better than Takeover

    Not an outrageous opinion. I would honestly say Brock/Seth was the best of the two cards.

    And yeah lol, crazy to watch a WWE product after New Japan for about 800 reasons.

    Dijak and Keith Lee apparently had an awesome match on the NXT tapings.

    I saw these two wrestle at BOLA in 2017 and it is my favorite match I have ever seen live...I'm very curious to see how similar their NXT match is. it's a crime Keith Lee hasn't been used for an ENTIRE YEAR in NXT...c'mon Trips wtf

    I have BOLA 2017 on DVD and that Dijak/Keith Lee match is f--king amazing. It's so weird that they haven't really done anything with either one of them in NXT so far, both could be huge stars

    That match was so great...Regal was there that night too I remember seeing him stick his head out the curtain. Speaking of PWG I went a couple weeks ago, which was my first time going since they left Reseda for downtown LA and man it's not the same...everything Meltzer says about the new venue/crowd atmosphere sadly is true. The 6-man lucha match before intermission made the trip worth it though...f--king incredible match.

    I haven’t watched a show since they left Reseda, hell BOLA 2917 might’ve been the last thing I watched. I feel like i saw Ricochet’s title victory though. I wish they live streamed their events

    PWG is the holy grail of live wrestling streaming rights...If WWE really wanted to get people talking about their upcoming $14.99 tier of the Network they would throw money at them...It obviously won't happen due to different contractual rights of guys who are on PWG shows who also wrestling for Impact or ROH (not to mention Excalibur) but man it'd be awesome

    IDK why they don't go on VOD on Highspots. I'm not going to order physicals after the fact, but I would totally stream it somewhat soon after they happen.

    Agreed...Highspots or IW.tv would make perfect sense...I mean shit they could even open their own Pivotshare and charge $5 a show to stream live.

    Speaking of Highspots I watched the Northeast Wrestling show on there tonight and it was really good. Moxley vs Pentagon was awesome.

    Man this NXT thing is nutty. Changes the game.

    This is actually a war now?

    I'm actually pretty excited for the "Wednesday Night Wars" as long as Vince doesn't change up NXT too much

    October is going to be f--king insane!

    The strategy of starting NXT on USA two weeks before AEW is a bad move by Vince IMO. To me, it just makes the Week 1 rating for AEW even bigger than it would have been if NXT started the same week. By then, all the new fans who weren't sure which one to watch will have already seen 2 weeks of NXT and will likely just DVR it that week to watch AEW live. Agree or Disagree?

    Pretty undeniable from a marketing POV. There's logic in presenting an awesome product before AEW and filling that Wednesday slot for the WWE only crowd. At the same time, I think they underestimate how many dormant fans are out there while at the same time overestimating the casual crowd they do have.

    They've positioned themselves as the heel promotion for a long time. The ego's of those at the top can't help but react and sell for their competition. They want everyone to know they're the mecca and nobody else can hang.

    We'll see.
