Final Thoughts

Return of the Pac! So I’m back up in the game/Running things to keep my swing/Letting all the people know/That I’m back to run the show! Now that I’ve typed that out (lyrics from 1996’s “Return of the Mack”) I’m realizing that it only works if Pac is pronounced “Pack” and not “Pock”–a detail that everyone in AEW seems to flip-flop on. Either way, Pac is back in action tonight against The Blade! After COVID-19 restrictions kept him out of action (and out of the country) for the last 8 months, Pac is looking to make his way back to the top of the singles division. I’m hoping that we get the Death Triangle stable that we were promised just before the world ground to a halt but, with the Lucha Brothers both aligned with Eddie Kingston and seemingly breaking up their tag partnership, that may not be in the cards.

The other big reveal last week was that Cody is starting a feud with…Shaq? Um, okay. Who is going to tune in when they hear that 48 year-old Shaquille O’Neal is going to participate in a wrestling match? Who is this for? The answer is that this is for Shaq. A bored rich guy that likes wrestling.

Another NWA Women’s Championship match is happening on Dynamite, this time between Sereena Deeb and former champion Thunder Rosa. While I continue to be stoked about the inclusion of the title (and Thunder Rosa!), I am starting to wonder where the AEW Women’s championship has gone. Outside of an OK match at Full Gear that had absolutely zero build, the title and it’s holder, Hikaru Shida, have been MIA for a hot minute. We know that Kenny Omega is the guy in charge of the women’s division, could neglecting it be part of his heel turn? No? Then what are we doing here guys?
