> Watch AEW Double or Nothing with the pre-show starting at 7:30pm EDT / 12:30am BST in http://taima.tv/r/wooo and http://taima.tv/r/woooalt with the PPV itself at 8pm EDT / 1am BST
> Countdown to Double or Nothing will be shown at 6:45pm EDT / 11:45pm BST in http://taima.tv/r/woooalt

A year ago (well, a few days away), AEW finally put on a show of their own, after a few months of hyping up their debut and certain people in the industry instantly calling them the number 2 promotion around despite the fact they had nothing in their name to show off before this event. 11,000 people packed the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas and they were going to return again to the same place this year....until corona happened, so it'll be at Daily's Place in Jacksonville with nothing but the wrestlers watching ringside.

Here is the card...there's been a few injuries lately so there have been some adjustments.

> AEW WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP: Jon Moxley (c) vs. Brodie Lee

> AEW WOMEN'S WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP (NO DQ/NO COUNT-OUT): Nyla Rose (c) vs. Hikaru Shida

> AEW TNT CHAMPIONSHIP MATCH: Cody vs. Lance Archer - Mike Tyson to present title to the winner.

> CASINO LADDER MATCH: Darby Allin vs. Colt Cabana vs. Orange Cassidy vs. Joey Janela vs. Scorpio Sky vs. Kip Sabian vs. Frankie Kazarian vs. Luchasaurus vs. TBA (Mystery Entrant) - Winner receives future AEW World Championship Match.

> STADIUM STAMPEDE MATCH: The Elite (Kenny Omega, Hangman Page, The Young Bucks and Matt Hardy) vs. Inner Circle (Chris Jericho, Jake Hager, Sammy Guevara, Santana, and Ortiz)

> MJF vs. Jungle Boy

> Penelope Ford vs. Kris Statlander

> Dustin Rhodes vs. Shawn Spears

> THE BUY IN: Best Friends vs. Private Party - Winners are the number one contenders for AEW World Tag Team Championship.

To be fair, PAC also had the benefit of getting a Dragon Gate glow-up after starting out as a tiny, skinny twink. Darby, Sammy & Jungle Boy could learn under him, however.

Cross Rhodes is a bad finisher

This gif is old and I just grabbed it off a search and not saying this one in particular looks the worst. They almost always look bad.

The crossrhodes looks so bad! Opponents take it differently all the time and sometimes they can make it look good but the move almost always just looks weak and stupid. It's just a bad finisher for a guy who is a big player now. You can argue about the Peoples Elbow or other bad finishers done by my eventers but the cross rhodes just LOOKS bad. It looks like the guy doing it gets hurt more and sometimes it just looks like a rolling hug.

I think the art of a finishing move can sometimes be lost. The Judas Effect is a great example of a finishing move done right. When Jericho first did that move hyped it up before hand and when he did it I thought it was stupid as hell. "A back elbow?" I said. But then he kept murdering opponents with it and it became a powerful move. It became a move you have to avoid or he will kill you. Wrestling is fake. Book the move to be strong and it becomes strong. Finishing moves should be important and matter. This is why kickout spam can hurt a lot of finishing moves and be bad in the long run. It can be done on rare occasions for big stakes matches but I really think you risk making your move look weak doing that.

Now Cody has a finishing move that HAS won matches and isn't truely a victim of kickout spam(although people kick out of it often). It just straight up looks bad. So if the move looks bad it is up to the wrestler or the booker to make the move feared. Sadly Cody has done this shitty move across promotions forever and at this point I feel nothing when I see him setting up for it. It looks bad AND it's a poorly booked finisher.

He needs a new one and in general I think wrestlers should try to keep their finisher special. If you're going to lose the match maybe don't even get a chance to hit the move or just have them reverse it or other creative ways around it. Don't just have the opponent kick out of your move that should win matches.



This isn't an AEW dogpile thread...stupid that I even need to say this.

You see sunshine, not only is Sid grinding his opponents neck into sawdust with the colossal lateral force applied by his huge frame, but Sid's impressive crossface simultaneously pulverizes their head between his forearms and crushes their wrist between his immense thighs.
Sid effectively combines three devastating submissions, any of which would guarantee a win in their own right, into a single overwhelming hold which not only puts a swift end to the match but also the entire career of any poor soul who is unfortunate to be caught in his grasp, if he so chooses..

>We went a whole year without a new thread. RIP Hiromu thread

THE STUFF IN THE TUBES:
>Puro Tube is on Tuesdays at 3pm EDT / 8pm BST in /wooo/tube -http://taima.tv/r/wooo and mainly shows promotions outside of Dragon Gate and NJPW. Join in as everyone argues why their favorite fed is superior and Yanopost, Anopost, CIMApost and dance like Keita until your tummy is full from all that snackpine.
>Shoot Tube is on Sundays at 3pm EDT / 8pm BST also in /wooo/tube, which usually feature classic Japanese Shootstyle wrestling shows and matches from the past and present.

Outside of Puro Tube, there's usually a few puro marks in the chat that can help fill you in on storylines and find you matches. Just show up outside of big shows like Raw, and you'll find someone in there to help you out. Puro matches also show up in the playlist, so scroll around to find them. NJPW, DG, and DDT live events are regularly streamed in the tubes, check the schedule for details.

>THE MAJOR FEDS:

NJPW: Oldest and largest promotion in Japan. Owned by Bushiroad and is booked by Gedo. His booking gets the tubes riled up sometimes (all the time), but the match quality generally makes up for it. In the midst of something of a revival, and although you may argue that it is already drawing to a close, they are still doing good business at the moment. They run one of the largest shows in wrestling, called Wrestle Kingdom, every year on January 4th at the fabled Tokyo Dome. Most every show they run, large and small, air in the tubes. They have a slew of foreign wrestlers on their roster right now. They also have a wonderful streaming website over athttp://njpwworld.com/

Dragon Gate: Almost certainly the second largest promotion in Japan. Born out of the Toryumon promotion, which was the brainchild of Ultimo Dragon, their style is a mixture of classic puro, cruiserweight/junior heavyweight sprints, and lucha libre. Stable warfare is a huge part of the promotion, with most every wrestler in the company being aligned with a unit in some way. Though it is a big promotion, they retain a grassroots feel, with wrestlers selling merch before and after shows, and running many shows out of community centers and gyms. Most of their large shows air in the tubes, and footage is also posted here. They also have a show that is filmed monthly in their little studio in Kobe called Prime Zone which is wacky, fun, and full of Mondai Ryu schemes. They recently joined the streaming bandwagon over athttps://dragongate.live

DDT: Indie promotion gunning for the second-largest-in-Japan spot alongside Dragon Gate. Founded in 1997 by Sanshiro Takagi (a big Stone Cold Steve Austin fan), they have taken the western sports entertainment style to the next level with ridiculous matches and outrageous gimmicks, like violently gay wrestlers, promos done in PowerPoint before matches, championships specifically for dark matches, and blow-up dolls and ladders winning titles. Despite the goofiness, there is tons of talent there, with names like Kota Ibushi, HARASHIMA, and Kenny Omega having been regulars at one point or another. They have released ddtuniverse, which is like NJPW World. A streaming site for all your DDT needs. The other companies that work alongside DDT also have their stuff on there. They, like NJPW have a great streaming service over athttp://ddtuniverse.com/

AJPW: Still rebuilding from the glory days of the 80s and 90s, when icons like Jumbo Tsuruta, Mitsuharu Misawa, Kenta Kobashi, Toshiaki Kawada, Stan Hansen, Genichiro Tenryu, and Akira Taue loomed large. They were nearly killed after Misawa formed Pro Wrestling NOAH, taking most of the roster with him, but after a decade and a half of turmoil, they are doing fairly well right now, thanks in no small part due to the efforts of Jun Akiyama. The 80s/90s classics are a must-watch for any new puro fan, and their current product ain't bad either. They also joined the streaming sensation sweeping Japan right now. Their website can be found over athttps://www.ajpw.tv

NOAH: Founded in 2000 by Misawa after leaving AJPW. Was arguably the best fed in the world for a few years, featuring the Four Pillars of AJPW and new faces like KENTA, Naomichi Marufuji, Go Shiozaki, and Takeshi Morishima, but since the death of Misawa in 2009, they have taken quite a nosedive. It was being booked by Jado, but has since been sold. NOAH is now working on rebuilding. They are currently worki…

>Looks like the Tokyo emergency order is over. The plan involves three steps, when events with 50 (tomorrow), 100 (two weeks) and then 1000 people (two weeks after that) may take place.

>NJPW will probably run empty arena shows at the dojo for a month starting in a couple of weeks, then half-capacity arenas if the timetables laid out by the government and Harold hold true. I imagine these would be Japanese talent only, plus ZSJ, who is currently in Japan.

>Why run empty arena shows? 1: To err on the side of caution. 2: To test out logistics of running a show safely. 3: Any other option would be a waste of money, needing to hire a whole arena, pay temp staff, security, transportation, hotels etc. which wouldn’t be covered by gate $$

>Empty arena Korakuen shows are also an option, as safety precautions were taken even back in February, and I imagine NJPW get a good deal on rental fees

wwe style is honestly the worst not only do you need to work the same slow boring matches but you do it so many more times that you wear down and get injured more often or faster. it seems to be extra hard on people like kairi who have wrestled a more hard hitting style most of their career.

> On 5/17, on the weekend the Southern California beaches were reopened, Shad Gaspard, wife Siliana, and ten-year-old son Aryeh headed to Marina del Rey beach in Venice, CA.

> He and his son were body surfing about 50 yards from shore at 3:40 p.m. when a dangerous rip tide came. Lifeguards sprung into action. The lifeguards were able to save a number of swimmers. A lifeguard saw Shad and his son in the ocean. The lifeguard himself had to make a split second choice, a ten-year-old child and a huge adult, who to try and save first. One person close to the situation told us that in a split-second, you have to make choices and this choice was obvious.

> But even if it wasn’t, Shad made sure it was. While struggling himself, he told the lifeguard to “take him,” waving, and pointing to his son. The lifeguard tried to deliver a rescue can, a buoy-like device to tow the boy back to shore, but with the size of the waves, Aryeh couldn’t grab onto it. Three minutes later, Aryeh was back on land. He was scared, but he was safe. The lifeguard immediately went back into the ocean for Shad. A wave, estimated at five to six feet, engulfed Shad. He never came back up.

> “The primary factor yesterday was the hazardous surf, with waves at four to six feet,” said an unnamed person connected to the lifeguards to the New York Daily News. “We had strong lateral and strong rip currents through the entire Venice area. Our lifeguards were making hundreds of rescues.”

> Divers and rescue boats, as well as a helicopter were immediately called and searched until dusk Sunday night, and during the day Monday. By that point, even though nobody wanted to say it publicly, his not being found with such a thorough search of the area meant he had almost surely drowned in the waves. The large scale search stopped on Monday, but there were still people attempting to find him on Tuesday before the Coast Guard suspended the search. We were told at the time from someone who works in that field that what would happen next is the body would likely surface on the shore within the next three days.

> At about 1:40 a.m. on 5/20, two people noticed a body washed on shore, roughly one mile from where he went missing. When police were called, they immediately recognized him as Gaspard, still covered in the same swim trunks.

> “We would like to express our gratitude to the first responders who rescued Aryeh and to the lifeguards, coast guard, divers, fire and police departments for their continued efforts to help find our beloved Shad,” said wife Siliana. “Shad is a fighter, a warrior and a magical soul. We are hoping and praying for his safe return. As a family we thank you all for your concern and well wishes. Please continue to keep sending your positivity and prayers to our beloved Shad. From The Entire Gaspard & Chittick Family

> After the body was found, Siliana released a second statement, writing, “Aryeh, myself and the Gaspard and Chittick families would like to take this time to thank everyone for their prayers and support, as we mourn the terrible loss of our beloved Shad. Shad was our whole world and we were his. There are not enough words to describe what he means to all of us. He was our heart, our soul, our protector, our warrior. He was a bright force of nature, who brought joy to many through his joyous and gracious nature. The outpouring of love from Shad’s friends, colleagues and fans has meant more to us than you can even imagine. We’ d like to once again thank the lifeguards, coast guard, divers, fire and police departments for their efforts. Shad was and will always be our real life super hero. I love you more, my love.”

> Both Jayson Paul, better known as JTG, his longtime tag team partner, and friend Joel Eisenberg, and perhaps others, received identical text messages from him on 1/26 within minutes of each other. Eisenberg said the texts related to his concerns regarding COVID-19. “If ever I die tomorrow, just know I love you as a brother and friend forever, even past this…

>As of tonight, WWE will be taking a leaf out of AEW's book and having people from the roster sit and cheer from the stands

>Andrade and Apollo Crews go to war in a United States Championship match
Let's start with what we believe is the most exciting part of the night - the United States Championship match between Andrade and Apollo Crews. Andrade has been the Champion for a while now, but his reign hasn't exactly set the world on fire. His best match as the Champion came last month against Apollo Crews - a closely-contested bout where the challenger was close to winning before succumbing to a knee injury, forcing the referee to stop the contest and declare Andrade as the winner. This would also cost Crews his spot at the Money in the Bank ladder match, which means that he has an extra chip on his shoulder. While Andrade might have Zelina Vega and Angel Garza in his corner, Apollo Crews is expected to have Kevin Owens backing him. It was Kevin Owens who returned last week and had a small verbal confrontation with Zelina Vega before introducing Apollo Crews. The two would team up together in a successful effort that led to Austin Theory being kicked out of the group. We'll get back to Theory later.

>A triple threat match to determine Asuka's first title challenger
Charlotte Flair is pulling triple-duty and has been the hardest working WWE superstar during the pandemic, as she's appeared on NXT, RAW, and SmackDown frequently. She recently faced Bayley on SmackDown in a Champion vs Champion match and was defeated without the requirement of Sasha Banks to assist the SmackDown Women's Champion. She'll be back on RAW and will look to go through veteran Natalya and former RAW Women's Champion Nia Jax to get another crack at Asuka - a woman who she's all too familiar with. Asuka is the new RAW Women's Champion and her celebration last week was interrupted by Nia Jax - recurring through the show and spilling over backstage as well. While Asuka had the last laugh on the night, it seems clear where the direction of her first title challenge is going. Nia Jax appearing and playing such an important role was essentially WWE spoiling the fact that she's likely to beat Flair and Natalya to earn a title shot at Backlash 2020.

>What's next for Seth Rollins' faction and Austin Theory?
Seth Rollins had an interesting role in last week's episode of RAW. He started with a non-apology to Rey Mysterio, telling Rey Mysterio that the assault on him was for the better. It led to a confrontation with Humberto Carrillo, who was taken out. Aleister Black would be the next in line to face Murphy, with the match ending after an ejected Austin Theory ended up aligning with Seth Rollins. One would argue that long-term, Zelina Vega made one of the biggest mistakes of her career by kicking the 22-year old Austin Theory from her group. Seth Rollins will be the direct beneficiary of this,as he's taken one of WWE's hottest prospects under his wing. It's going to be a great decision in the long-run, especially when The AoP return by the end of the year. For now, the addition of Theory will be big in his battle against Aleister Black, who will be facing an unfavorable numbers game. What's going to come of the Rollins-Black rivalry?

>Drew McIntyre appears on the MVP lounge ahead of Backlash
While it isn't the match we expected at Backlash, it's certainly going to be a tough match-up for the WWE Champion Drew McIntyre. His second PPV challenger is another superstar who lost at WrestleMania 36 - Bobby Lashley. MVP has seemingly decided to take Bobby Lashley under his wing, telling him that he needs to start "being Bobby Lashley again". There's a lot of truth to what he said, especially given that Lashley has lost a lot of his edge over the past 7 months. However, he's been regaining his momentum, getting a few victories under his belt recently. MVP was out with Bobby Lashley in the main event of RAW last week to observe McIntyre in his match against SmackDown's King Corbin. McIntyre won as expected, with Lashley staring the Champion down to close the show. It was clear what was next for the WWE Champion and WWE later confirmed th…

Since almost everybody has come back and every big match has been done to death, what do you think are the biggest matches left that have never happened?

Stone Cold vs CM Punk
Cena vs Goldberg
Stone Cold vs Lesnar
HBK vs Daniel Bryan
New Jack vs Nick Gage

Anything else really left or is this it right here as far as 'wrestlemania main event worthy matches' go?

Cena vs Tanahashi in a WWE x NJPW collaborative event would be THE greatest shit ever.

The Bryan and Vinny retro shows have been creaming their panties over the Angle/Regal/Benoit feud going on, and I have to agree.

Regal v Danielson
Regal v Sabre
Regal v Cesaro
Regal v WALTER would be off the fucking chain
