Well, so I watched the latest AEW wrestling ppv titled, “Full Gear” last night. The card was pretty impressive so I couldn’t miss it. I wanted to watch the two big main events Chris Jericho vs. Cody Rhodes and Kenny Omega vs. Jon Moxley ’cause I knew those two matches were gonna end up being the best matches of the night and they were. I was very impressed with last night’s AEW ppv. I enjoyed every match. They were all very good but like I said Jericho vs. Rhodes and Omega vs. Moxley were the best.
I’ve been watching AEW ever since they started with their very first ppv “Double or Nothing” and this company is getting better and better. Last night’s ppv “Full Gear”, AEW showed what WWE has been missing all these years: “wrestling”. That’s what fans watch these shows for… fans want to see good wrestling and WWE doesn’t give us that anymore.
AEW knows what kind of wrestling matches we want to see. We want to see matches that tell a story. We want to see thrills and chills and excitement. AEW definitely gave us all that last night which is what WWE has been missing for years. We want to see good wrestling back. WWE matches over the last decade or so has been boring as fuck… they used to be really good in the 80’s and 90’s but WWE has been crap lately and they aren’t getting any better even though they try.
I want to talk about the thrilling Omega vs. Jon Moxley match from last night, though. Their match was called “Lights Out” and it was an unsanctioned match so this match means anything goes. It was a hardcore match. It was a very violent and dark match all the way through and it went on for almost an hour or a little more. They were using all kinds of weapons, barbed wire, chains, etc. There was also a lot of blood too. That “violent” match was nothing new. We had “extreme” hardcore wrestling in the WWE back in the 90’s and there was ECW wrestling but “extreme” wrestling took a long hiatus until now. Hardcore wrestling is officially back and AEW brought back hardcore wrestling.
Watching that match last night Omega vs. Moxley, made me realize how much I miss hardcore and extreme wrestling ’cause I’m a big fan of that style of wrestling. You don’t see that style of wrestling in WWE anymore ’cause WWE banned it since they went PG. After that match last night, I hope WWE is waking up and realizing we want that style of wrestling back. During the Hardcore and extreme era in the 90’s, that’s where Mick Foley as Cactus Jack, Terry Funk, Tommy Dreamer, RVD, The Sandman, the two Holly Brothers – Hardcore and Crash and the Sandman were all a part of in the old WWE and ECW days.
Last night’s AEW ppv was only the beginning, though. I think we’re about to see more and more of Extreme Wrestling in AEW in the future, absolutely. When is AEW going to put on their first steel cage match or a Hell in a Cell style kind of match? I’m sure they will. They are still a pretty new company and they will give us their first “cage/Cell” match very soon, I’m sure.
I am loving AEW more and more and I think Tony Khan is doing a very good job. Tony Khan who is the owner of AEW definitely knows his wrestling for sure and he definitely knows what fans want to see.
AEW is so refreshing, though. So nice to see them calling it “professional wrestling” and not “sports entertainment”. That’s how it should be. If you’re a wrestling fan yourself and if you’re not watching AEW then you should. You’re missing out on some good stuff. Start watching AEW Dynamite on TNT Wednesday nights.
Now I want to start getting some AEW t-shirts soon and I will. I want to get a t-shirt with the All Elite Wrestling logo on the front of it. I also want to get a Chris Jericho shirt, a Kenny Omega shirt and a Adam Hangman Page shirt ’cause they are my favorite now. Man, I hope AEW will start putting on shows in Albany, NY ’cause I would love my chance to see them live in person. What they’re doing is really good.
I’m sure the McMahon family and the WWE are getting really worried now after last night.
