They continue to surprise me every week as every episode is just a little bit different from the last and adds more and more layers to the new promotion. Again disclaimer I know I am a few episodes behind, but I will cover them all between now and May 25, I just want to spotlight each one separately. I enjoy the fact that not only is the company truly looking unknown stars to give them a chance to make an impact, but they are also starting to look ahead to the July show called "Fight for Fallen Heroes."
This show will take place in Jacksonville and will be a benefit for victims of gun violence, according to a few articles AEW will donate the proceeds of the event the victims of gun violence. In my opinion, this an incredible gesture by the new promotion and I am sure it will be an incredibly emotional show, but one that lives up to the repution these guys are building.
I also want to mention just how evil Jericho comes off in this video I feel like he has stepped up the heel work from how he was in Japan. Now he is acting a bit more entitled and kinda looks like well the Joker without face paint or a mobster. It is incredible to see the never ending little changes that Jericho makes to his character without us even noticing most of the time he might actually be the best.
This is by far the most entertaining and was the most unexpected interview I have ever seen in the best way possible. At this point we are nearing the end of the mystery of who attacked Matt Tremont and even after asking Anthony Greene we are not any closer to figuring out the mystery. But this Saturday night we will get the answer and will have to atone for their actions by facing an angry "Bulldozer." In my opinion if there was anyone in wrestling I wouldn't want to piss of Matt Tremont would be on the top of the list.
The other video included is the promo that Anthony Greene is referencing in his promo. It is questionable why exactly Lex is so intense as I don't really know any context to go along with this promo, but that doesn't change how funny it is. Either way though this was the first I have heard someone attempt to recreate this promo. In my opinion, this promo from Anthony Greene was more entertaining then most of the "comedic" segments we see on Raw or Smackdown. If you'd like to find out who was behind the attack then keep your eyes on @synergywrestle or https://www.synergywrestling.com for all information.
In between putting together another section of the book I decided it was a good time to write an article and that's where this title comes from smart right!! It seems like with every episode of Double or Nothing I watch the interest in All Elite goes up a little bit more. I have never had the opportunity to really watch piece by piece of a foundation be laid for a new promotion and it's been very interesting to watch every step of the way.
This is by far the most interesting episode of the series, because it puts the emphasis on those lesser known talents that are getting their big break in AEW. There is no doubt that names like Kip Sabien, Sonny Kiss, and Brandon Cutler are just a few lesser known stars ready to breakthrough. This one of the biggest reasons why All Elite Wrestling will succeed because this is clearly a company built on passion and top stars who care about wrestling leading the charge. I feel like this was a smaller episode, but it still has big part in the bigger picture.
This is by far the most unique press conference I have ever seen but I wouldn't except anything else from All Elite. The folks at All Elite have done everything they could to stick out from the pack and be a little different that other company. In my opinion this party looked like a worthwhile trip and though some might question if a trip to Vegas is worth it just in name, but this could be the future of wrestling being built right in front of us. The card is coming together piece by piece and match by match, even though I am a little behind in the episodic series but we will get through all of them before the big day.
The highlight of this episode for me was seeing the confrontations between Chris Jericho & Kenny Omega which made their match official for May 25 in the MGM Garden. The other was seeing the Lucha Bros attack the Young Bucks on stage pretty much making their match official for Double or Nothing and considering this one match is one that never happened before or hasn't happened in the public eye. Double or Nothing will be a special event and the card is coming together nicely, I'm loving seeing everything building bit by bit.
At the end of January during the Synergy Eight event we witnessed the mystery beat down of the now former Synergy World Champion Matt Tremont. Using the social media platforms to continue adding to the mystery and building some suspense. It is interesting to actually see a company using social media properly to continue a major storyline or feud which is something that the WWE and others companies never really do, because they don't really need to, but they could.
In the videos featured below we see world famous independent star Francis Kip Stevens and Aaron Bradley who is the most recent interview. It very interesting to see how different people view the situation and look to shift blame to different talent within the company. Overall though knowing Matt Tremont whoever attacked him should be prepared for a war with the "Bulldozer." Remember the next event from Synergy Wrestling is set for Saturday March 30, 2019, buy tickets here!
It has been a little while since we visited this section of the site and I thought it's a new month and no better time to share the attention. Since the birth of this promotion it has been about changing perceptions and perspectives which is something that those in charge of the company have done their entire careers. From Cody to Nick & Matt to Christopher Daniels to Scorpio and Kaz it doesn't matter who you look at everything with that company has fought to be the best and proven critics wrong at one point or another. Now the door is open for the future to have the stage that the other company won't given for one reason or another.
This is where All Elite comes in and where the Khan family comes in this company is all about changing perspectives and setting your eyes on talent that other companies never gave a chance. This episode specifically spotlights two hungry stars with something to prove Hangman Page and Jimmy Havoc. As seen early in the video Jimmy Havoc talked about feeling like an injury two years ago forced him to miss out on opportunities that his fellow British wrestlers were given likely from the WWE and Japan.
Now speaking of Hangman Page, as I've mentioned I have been a fan of watching his progression the last few years with ROH and he absolutely has a bright future in wrestling as top star. This video shines a light on his confidence and just how much potential Page has to be a top star in the world of wrestling. In my opinion I believe that All Elite Wrestling has struck gold with Hangman Page, just wait.
