    So has anyone been watching WWE lately? I seem to fading in and out with them, but recently the feuds and matches have been pretty awesome. In fact it's been so good I actually bought a shirt with Becky Lynch's bloody face on it.

    Watched from the pre-show til the finale. 5pm til roughly 12am. Each match was worth watching in some way. WWE's on a good path right now.

    Anyone been following the developments with AEW? Waiting for that ticket announcement on the 7th for Double or Nothing! Also wondering if they'll announce Kenny Omega joining AEW, I heard his contract was up with NJPW as of today.
    I've really enjoyed NJPW for the last year, and pretty much dropped off wwe completely. I catch things here and there, really love the push they gave Becky Lynch. Hoping they give Kushida a chance, if thats where he's going. With the Bucks, Kushida, and possibly Kenny leaving Njpw I wonder if all my attention will shift to AEW. I love Okada, Naito, and I have a love hate with Jay White but I don't know if what they're doing will hold my interest.
    Honorable mentions also go to Roppongi 3k, Senada (but not Evil), and Tama Tonga... sometimes.. for anyone keeping up with njpw and are keeping score

    Hiromu will get better then NJPW will be saved. Haha but seriously I think Kenny wont leave, Ill be shocked if he does. It's easy to forget the guy is a huge weeb that speaks fluent japanese.

    Yeah, I'm really looking forward to Hiromu making a return. I think its still awhile out, but I heard he's out of the hospital now.
    Kenny went to AEW!
    I'm excited to see how it all unfolds. Just scored tickets to Double or Nothing in Vegas in May!

    You are a lucky bastard for attending. I was excited to see what AEW could really bring to the table before this event, but now I am just BEYOND pumped. My only concern right now is that they play their cards right and aren't trying to get too big too quick. But my god Dustin vs. Cody and Lucha Bros. vs. Young Bucks were awesome. I really wish I could have been there in person to hear the room explode when Moxley walked in

    The crowd was amazing! You could tell every person there wanted to be there, and loved every minute. The energy was amazing. Even the battle royale, which was mostly full of wrestlers I'd never heard of was amazing, and the turn at the end was perfect.
    I was actually surprised when the Bucks won their match, I was fully expecting the Lucha Bros to reclaim their title, and bummed that Kenny lost but when Moxley came out I marked out haaaard, but the entire crowd did too!
    I feel like there wasn't a dry eye in the house after that Dustin/Cody Rhodes match, and hearing Dustin's reactions later on when he was told people felt they had the match of the night. Seeing someone who's worked so hard, for so long finally get that validation is about as heart warming as wrestling can get.
    Really hoping AEW can keep their shows up at this level and be successful for years to come, that was the best wrestling show I've ever seen. Fingers crossed for the weekly show

    WWE burned me out a bit this year. The last few matches I watched of theirs was back when Nia Jax punched Becky Lynch in the face, so I ended up not watching a whole lot of wrestling since that point. However I did manage to keep some eagle eyes on AEW and that DON show hooked me immediately. Their deal with TNT is pretty sweet and as you said, Fingers crossed! I'm also very eager to see who else drops from WWE and goes to AEW. Lord knows their current storylines, if you can call them that, aren't helping any matters.

    Their Monday night RAW event in Kentucky apparently got "BOO'd" very loudly. From what I heard from a friend who watched, there wasn't one full wrestling match for the entire first hour of the program. That's ...... well..... that's just bonkers. I'd be pissed if I paid for a ticket.

    I think I quit 100% around that time as well. I just thought "why am I wasting an entire evening a week for this"? I'd rather be doing pretty much anything else.

    AEW genuinely got me emotional, just knowing wrestling could be good and fun. I used to love ROH but man has that place circled the drain. NXT is fantastic but their talent pool has been kind of cleaned out now and they are definitely rebuilding.

    Yeah WWE pretty much lost me about a year ago I think.. I just came to realize that watching a 3 hour show that I'm only interested in maybe one match wasn't worth my time. Especially since that one match was usually interrupted by some of what they consider storytelling and wouldn't happen half the time. I started watching ROH which was fun for awhile but, to agree with @kid_miracleman , has really declined. I NJPW was great for a long time but with the shift in the Bullet Club... "switchblade era".... , the push they're giving Tanahashi, and with Kenny and the Bucks leaving that hasn't held my interest much either. Naito, and Okada are still amazing, Marty Scurrl (sometimes), Will Ospreay, and Roppongi 3k are still great but I found myself losing interest anyway.
    AEW is really rekindling my interest in wrestling! Also watching the interview with Tony Khan, his enthusiasm for how DoN went and the future of the production is really refreshing! Here's hoping guys!

    Rumors abound about who's next to join the AEW roster. One that stands out to me is Rusev. I can't even begin to tell you how badly I want him to just go full Cold War-era Soviet on AEW. I sincerely doubt it would happen but I can dream I guess.

    Oh man Rusev would be great! It's so sad how WWE has buried him.. They make it seem like they only wanted him for Lana and now that shes... ahem... "trying to be a wrestler".. they stopped pushing him

    I just listened to the interview Jon Moxley did over on the Talk Is Jericho show and the horror stories he had were incredibly sad. It actually made me sort of regret paying $9.99/month for WWE. I really can't wait for more AEW. I just really hope their tv deal with TNT skyrockets and AEW stays successful.

    So..........dare I ask did any of you blokes watch WWE's newest Saudi installment? I just watched What Culture's review on it and wow. It sounds painfully awkward.

    The phrase "incredibly sad" comes to mind.

    Watching Goldberg vs. Undertaker...man, WWE just needs to let these ol' dogs enjoy their retirement.

    I'm pretty happy to be a lapsed WWE fan right now. BOSJ finals just reminded me how good wrestling can be. Cant wait for Dominion tomorrow night.

    Do you have NJPWworld and if not how do you prefer watching the shows? That's the hardest part about getting into NJPW, atleast for me.

    NJPW World subscriber here! It's very easy to sign up and use. I just Chromecast everything via my phone or iMac.

    Who here is watching Raw/Smackdown now that Bischoff and Heyman are in charge?

    I still haven't yet because I feel like it's going back to an abusive relationship
