    I'm back bruhs!

    I've had a s-----y f---ing couple months and haven't been on here (sadly also ended up f---ing no showing the Joey Janela show I had tickets to last weekend) but I'm back for the upcoming most important month in pro wrestling history since March 2001! What's good @WrestlingBros Anyone here going to one of the first few AEW on TNT shows? I see my AEWBros tag still never got made lol
    Btw- @Kon I ended up getting tickets for the first Smackdown on FOX! I'm pretty stoked tbh...and since they are also using it as the SD 20th anniversary show I'd be shocked if The Rock didn't show up...which will be dope since I was Staples the last time he was there when he called CM Punk in front of all of us lol

    I'm a betting man and you'd lose your money, man. Chill! I'm as excited as anyone for AEW, it's literally got me back into wrestling after five years but man, do not underestimate the absolute powerhouse that WWE is. Just because the product's dog s--- doesn't mean as a company they're not a juggernaut. They know they don't need to try with their shows because people watch no matter what. Their last TV deal was $2.35 billion.

    @WrestlingBros @NJPWBros
    I have been gone since WM (been absolutely swamped traveling for work) but I had to make sure I came before tomorrow.

    I'll never forget where I was in March, 2001 when I saw on WWF.com that Vince had purchased WCW. Since then we had the botched Invasion angle, the f---ing XWF, and TNA trying to be relevant for years by doing their best WCW impression and failing every time. All this to say, since that day in 2001, Vince and the WWE have pretty much been as a big of a monopoly as any company is in any industry in the U.S...tomorrow that could finally change.

    Tomorrow at 12pm est in Madison Square Garden (the irony), Warner Media will have their Upfronts (for those that don't know, this is the day of the year where television networks present and announce their lineup of new and returning shows that will start in the fall) and will announce that TNT is back in the professional wrestling business by giving AEW a two hour tv slot in primetime 52 weeks a year.

    In short- The AEW on TNT show will be revealed! We will get the name, the day of the week, and the start date. It's a big deal for long time wrestling fans, like myself, who never thought this day would come. It's especially cool for me to see the Young Bucks be apart of this, with of all the years I watched them in person at PWG. Anyone who is a wrestling fan should support this company because just as WWE is at it's lowest moment quality wise, we as fans will finally have a true alternate that will be backed by real money and given a huge platform to succeed.

    I'm so f---ing stoked bros!!

    Don’t really call it jumping ship after a release

    I can’t remember anyone like legitimately jumping ship to TNA....TNA signees were mostly over the hill midcarders, people released by wwe, or people who went on hiatus and came in for an easy paycheck

    I guess for me it's kinda funny for him to head back after he spent the last 2-3 years bashing wwe left and right and being the throne breaker to run right back bc he didn't get his way. There's no denying he wprks/worked his a--- off to get where he's at but he gives off such entitlement vibes

    I highly doubt it, he's gonna be on Dynamite Wednesday and will probably address the situation then. It would be wild though.

    P.S I didn't know this forum had an AEW thread that's awesome

    I can definitely see Bryan happening. I’m not going to believe Punk is actually signed though until 4 minutes into his 7th match
