    I also couldn't help but notice that's where the timekeeper's area is for AEW, so you'll probably get a good view of someone going through that table.

    And maybe this time you'll get to see Kenny Omega in the flesh.

    Don't ask. It was $96 each but $130 each after all the ticketmaster fees. I told the boys only it's a one time thing and next time we're sitting last row Plus I'm going to try and con my father coming with to pay for some of it! ha

    Based on the teasers, Omega and the Bucks should be back. We just want to know whether Luchasauras will be face again by then.

    MJF - is it pretty much guaranteed his standing up for Moxley and getting pummeled by the firm is his own perfect set up for being a ruse used to beat Moxley?

    LOL About Luchasauras. I think he's okay as a heel but only because Christian is his manager. If he was by himself that would not work.

    Oh yeah MJF may have gotten beat down by the Firm but I don't buy that he turned face. He made a promise to not use his Dynamite Diamond Ring in the match but this whole thing with Regal... he's 100% going to use Regal's brass knuckles to win. The question is... does Regal turn heel? He kind of said on commentary that he's a villain as well. AEW loves foreshadowing stuff so we'll see. The BCC doesn't seem to be getting anywhere really, so maybe it's time for Regal to ditch it?

    I just want to say I'm really disappointed once again with how they book wrestlers though. Ricky Starks? Powerhouse Hobbs? You let them feud, give them a crappy 4 minute match at a PPV and then they had a great Lights Out Match during AEW Grand Slam and now they're not on TV? Are you kidding me? Then this Wardlow stuff, pairing him with Samoa Joe is pretty unnecessary. I swear, Tony doesn't know how to book his champions. Seems like every person that has the TNT Title (outside of Sammy Guevara) disappears from TV or stops being important. Then we got Hook who is hardly being used and Hookhausen just got dropped as well. But why??

    The same goes for Jade Cargill. We have this little story with Nyla Rose stealing her title and well... Jade doesn't seem to care too much about it. On Rampage, she demanded to hi-jack the show, but instead got a deal for Leila Grey to wrestle Willow Nightingale and that's it? It makes no sense.

    The only thing AEW has done right 100% is The Acclaimed and how extremely over they are. You need to keep them on TV, have them rap and scissor fans. Audience participation is how you keep things going.

    Right? That was the surprise? Terrible. As long as he stays and does backstage stuff, then I don't care. But do we really need him as part of Jay Lethal's group and eventually have a match with Sting? No one wants that.

    Orange Cassidy vs Shibata though on Rampage o_o There's no way Shibata loses right? Let a guy from NJPW carry the belt around this time.
    Then we got The Elite and this whole getting "erased" thing. I wonder what it's leading to. Feels more like a jab at CM Punk.

    Full Gear is coming up and as of this post, I don't care for it at all... even if MJF is going to win the title. That makes me sad, hype wise for AEW.

    I mean are they trying to be TNA light?

    I agree - if he becomes a TV mainstay that takes time away from people I actually care about, it won't be good.

    I don't see Cassidy losing just yet, but we'll see.

    Something about Dynamite last night... it was firing on all cylinders again.

    - Trios Match going to Best of 7 couldn't be more blatantly obvious but it's still silly that they already know the stipulations for Match 6 and 7 even though those are "if necessary".
    - Jungleboy seemingly moving on to a new feud finally with The Firm with Hook by his side. I like!
    - Acclaimed is so over it's great. But feuding with Jay Lethal and Jeff Jarrett? Ew. Seriously, get Jarrett off of TV and let him stick to the behind the scenes stuff. I do like his music though.
    - House of Black murdering people again is great. The problem is that The Elite will win the Trios Titles and if HOB gets first dibs, they might lose, so what do you do with them?
    - Jericho losing to the "jobber" known as Action Andretti was great. Did you hear that crowd pop when he kicked out of the Codebreaker?
    - Welcome back Ruby Soho. I don't know what you do with Tay and Anna Jay from here.
    - MJF now moves on to a feud with Bryan Danielson, should be great. I hate that the Ricky Starks match was for the AEW Title AND Dynamite Diamond Ring. We knew Ricky wasn't going to win the title but why combine it? At least let Ricky win the ring. It doesn't have to stay with MJF for 4 damn years.

    ucsd, you have a PPV like Dynamite tomorrow and a very good Rampage too.

    Jon Moxley vs. Hangman Adam Page -I see Hangman winning this. No reason Mox should win right? Just expect lots of blood.

    Britt Baker and Jamie Hayter vs. Saraya and Toni Storm - This part is the most intriguing. I hope the crowd doesn't crap all over this match if Mercedes Mone doesn't show up to replace Toni Storm after Heel Shida destroys her. I don't see Saraya losing so Britt Baker has to eat the pin here right? Then you can sort of tease Britt Baker/Jamie Hayter being mad at each other if they want to go that route.

    Bryan Danielson vs Konosuke Take****a - This match doesn't quite make sense for me. It'll be a great match, no doubt about it. I see them teasing a 20 minute draw but of course Bryan will win. The reason why it doesn't make sense is because of MJF's stipulation where Bryan has to win every match on TV up until Feb 8th to get a title shot. So why is a face like Take****a in this match? I mean sure, he has something to prove... but logic should be Bryan vs heels every week. But I know AEW doesn't do that so that's okay by me. The problem is that the result will be insanely obviously, but at least Take****a will look good in the loss.

    JungleHook vs. Lee Moriarty and Big Bill - I don't see this going more than 5 minutes. This feud is a little strange to me. So Jungle Boy is going after giants that go after him? Hook is there to defend/help him, which is great. Plus he's on TV more regularly so no complaints there. Lee Moriarty is obviously there to take the loss because Big Bill can't look bad. At the same time, I think keeping Hook undefeated is also a tough route to go. Having him lose to someone like Big Bill might be okay by me. That way, you get rid of the "undefeated Hook" thing and he can be in more meaningful feuds moving forward.

    AEW Trios Championship Escalera De La Muerte Match: Death Triangle vs. The Elite - Soooo is basically a Ladder Match right? I wonder if there's anything else that will make it more "special and unique". I really think Death Triangle should retain. Would love to see them feud with House of Black though I'm sure having them face The Elite is fine too.

    Have a damn good time!

    Words can't describe how much fun Dynamite was. PPV quality show.

    Hangman/Moxley - awesome. Didn't even need blood. Mox played off the "possible concussion" well (assuming it wasn't real) after the match. Crowd popped hard for both, but after a bunch of hangman chants Mox gave the double bird to the crowd. pretty funny.

    Adam Cole - shocked he was there! Fantastic speech. Definitely a face speech and crowd was eating it up. I won't lie there were near tears when he was talking about his headaches and waking up in the middle of the night asking what is happening to him.

    Danielson/Konosuke - first off, the MJF stuff was fun (I laughed really hard with him making fun of Ken Jeong and Freddy Prinze Jr.). With the making fun of Take's Japanese though I was like uh oh here comes that line crossing again, but Konosuke with his "I said kiss my ***" was great. I am 100% behing Konosuke, he is amazing and I'll probably buy a shirt soon. You cannot tell me otherwise! Both guys chests were beat red after all the slaps. I loved the back and forth and thought maybe, just maybe they'd surprise us with the ending but it's pretty clear they're building Danielson to the title challenge. Konosuke is a star though. I think it was after it went to commercial but Bryan pulled Konosuke back into the ring and got everyone to applaud him.

    JAS segment - all I'll say is..."I like this hat!"

    Women's match - I won't lie this is when one of my kids made me take them to the bathroom and to get a drink. Britt Baker is over, but Hayter got a bigger pop that I could hear. I came back to see the kendo stick thrown in and Baker using it, so I assume they're gonna go with that storyline of "she screwed it up for them" for Storm/Saraya. I don't even care really that Mercedes didn't show up, the 4 in the ring are more than capable of holding their own and putting on a show.

    JungleHook and Bill/Lee - nothing special. I am a little bored with Hook I hate to say as there's very little personality. Jungle Boy is still great but seems to kind of be mired with no clear direction. Not a terrible match and the look on Bill's face with his WTF reaction to being suplexed was fun. Is Luchasaurus ever coming back?

    Ladder Match - what else can I say, I got what I expected and I f'n loved it. The crowd was hot and the action was even better. I was sitting on the floor 6 rows from ring and you could hear every shot taken. I really wasn't sure which way it would go. By the time the match ended I had absolutely no voice left whatsoever. My only concern with House of Black being the first trios challenger is they need some wins first. Also after went off the air, Kenny gave his adiu speech but also stopped to make sure everyone gave death triangle a standing O. They were very over. Also side note, Brody King is from Van Nuys and House of Black is awesome.

    My complaint? Too long for one night. There were about 5 or 6 dark matches before Dynamite started. Some short, some medium. By the time Dynamite ended, the crowd was completely out of breath and energy. They did one more Jade Cargill Dark match before they started taping Rampage which wasn't necessary but a time killer while they switched aprons and set up. By the time it started with Darby/Juice, the crowd was waaay more subdued. Rampage had some decent matches but even I couldn't get myself up. I would strongly suggest they just film Rampage before Dynamite and keep it at that, or split the shows and maybe do Dark/Rampage as a separate one.

    They announced a Ring of Honor Supercard show Friday March 31st at the Galen Center at 4:00, and Tony Khan said some AEW wrestlers would be involved. Sounds fun but the thought of trying to go to the downtown/USC area on a Friday afternoon is scary as hell.
