    I think it was that plus they were Vince'd out & made to have WWE style matches

    Only Vince would think they need to strip them of everything unique

    Crazy that the finals were supposed to be Ibushi and ZSJ in hindsight

    Hahaha. Meme makers. He is aware you can download an app for free, then just do it yourself?

    Not even necessary, as most memes are void of any humor, incredibly easy.

    Meltzer said he heard from WWE that they made Kenny a big offer and as of now it doesn't look good

    He also said that NJPW really wants to keep Kenny & re-sign Jericho, so they are trying to figure things out with AEW/ROH
    Dave said what it looked like on Sunday changed on Monday

    I guess Omega's move of making it public was smart because NJPW got a lot of heat

    He added they were pissed Kenny did press in japan

    A decent by-product of AEW, is WWE are starting to push Fin finally
    That is a direct message to the smaller free agents

    In a release Tuesday morning with some quotes ahead of their kickoff rally in Jacksonville, FL, Jacksonville Jaguars (NFL) owner Shad Khan confirmed he is the lead investor in All Elite Wrestling, the fledgling promotion involving the Young Bucks, Cody, and more.

    From the release:

    "I am the lead investor, a supporter and a backer of All Elite Wrestling, and I anticipate great things today and into the future for AEW and everyone who has worked passionately on this week’s launch. I know AEW will be welcomed by wrestling fans here in the U.S. and throughout the world who are ready for something new and authentic. AEW will work hard to deliver on that promise."

    Khan also clarified his son Tony's involvement and that AEW will run independently from his other businesses:

    "As important, I am the father – the proud father – of Tony Khan, who will serve in a leadership role at AEW during the 2019 launch and in the years ahead. Tony will assemble a great team to take AEW over the top, for the benefit of everyone who loves the wrestling industry, while continuing to serve in his current capacities with the Jaguars and Fulham.

    AEW will operate as an organization completely independently from my other interests. It will not deter attention or divert resources from any of my businesses, teams, projects or investments. At the same time, AEW will enjoy the same full commitment I given to everything and everyone in my life – my family and friends, my business and, in recent years, to sports, hospitality and now entertainment."

    Tony then gave a statement about AEW:

    "Wrestling fans are a community unlike most others. I’ve been a part of this community since I was 7 years old, and I can tell you that wresting fans see the world every day through a special lens. We see wrestling in Hollywood films and tv shows, we see elements of wrestling in the presentation of sports and in the marketing of grandiose star athletes, and we certainly see wrestling in politics.

    The wrestling community is a constant; its members are diverse, we are physically located on all corners of the planet, yet we are constantly connected. Recently, a new family has formed, bonded by love and respect for wresting but armed with a vision and resources that have never before been available to the wrestling community. Our objective is to connect our community closer than ever before through All Elite Wrestling, or AEW.

    AEW does not mean any less of a continued commitment to existing obligations and duties that I have, or my family has, to our business and sports interests. That will never be the case. What’s important is that every individual decision we make as family, whether it’s ownership or investment in a team or property, is 100 percent beneficial to those specific interests. I will always welcome that accountability and responsibility, as nothing is more important than serving our supporters and friends.

    AEW will launch with a roster of the top wrestlers in the world. While they’ll clash in what will be some of the most intense and fast-paced contests ever sanctioned in the squared circle, they’ll also share a common goal: to make this the true golden age, to make this the greatest time ever to be a wrestling fan. Likewise, as a business, by treating our wrestlers with respect and warmth, we also seek to make this the golden age for the performers themselves.

    I urge everyone who believes in what we’re doing, or wants to believe in dreams coming true, to support AEW by spreading the word and passing the wrestling bug onto someone else. My message: Get in on the ground floor with AEW today and help lead our movement to grow the wrestling community and ensure that the voices of the wrestling fans, their creative minds and their remarkable ideas, will always be heard."

    The latest BTE was well done. Kenny and Marty were the only 2 not to have timers on their phones the last few months. Well. Kenny lost his phone a while back with no attention to it. His phone was found in the bushes outside the Tokyo dome with the timer sound going off. Pretty fun writing they're putting out with this series.

    Haha. I just saw a spoiler for Neville and came here to ask you if it was possible. When I saw your post. I marked out. Legit marked out. Biggest free agent signing imo. He has more in ring potential than Kenny or Anyne else. I love his talent .

    Cool ... I did not know how widespread it was
    I haven't looked a Twitter in awhile (since Conrad post)

    But who is "Anyne else"?
    Sounds like a hot foreign chick

    I'm a sucker for Championship Belts. I wonder when we'll get the unveiling for their title? Not today for sure. But at Double or Nothing? Or later. Maybe wait a year to build up the roster and have a tournament of some sorts.

    Conrad is really good live on the mic. He reminds me of old school NWA Jim Ross a bit.
