Final Thoughts:
What I’m hyped for: Jungle Boy Vs. Dax Harwood. These are both guys that I am very high on, Dax for his incredible catalog of tag team work and Jungle Boy for his potential. Not only do I think this is going to be the match of the night, but handcuffing Tully and Cash to Luchasaurus to prevent interference is EXACTLY the kind of dumb wrestling stuff that I crave. AEW could’ve simply added an official to keep an eye on the two of them or just banned everyone from ringside, but no! They remembered that this is a professional wrestling show and have set the table for shenanigans. I love it.

What I’m dreading: Cody responding to Shaq. I hate everything about this feud and it’s nonsensical presentation thus far. I do not believe that it’s drawing eyes to the product and it’s taking up space that could be used to showcase and develop other talent. It’s continued inclusion feels self-indulgent of Cody, but maybe I’m missing something? Maybe there is a hook that is drawing people in? If you’re a person that likes and understands this program please reach out (@josh_chambers) and make it make sense!
