In ring of course, big AEW shows almost always feature better in ring work. I still argue it doesn’t feel like the biggest AEW show in history. Summerslam is WWE’s #3 of the year and it felt as such, this is supposed to be the biggest show AEW has ever done, and it doesnt feel that way to me.
Personally I love the main event but sadly a lot of fans can’t get over Adam Cole’s size. I think that is stupid for the record, but you see that on social media and even here on Post sometimes. Either way, I love this main event and think its perfect so I won’t criticize this one.
Punk vs Joe feels big. I am looking forward to this match a lot. I would rather see Omega vs Punk, but at the same time its probably best not to rush that. This should be a great great match.
Buck vs FTR will be fantastic. On a tag front you probably can’t get much bigger then this.
Takeshita vs Omega…I’m sure it will be a great match, but I just dont care that much about Takeshita. With that said, maybe this match will make me care a bit more. I get using Omega to elevate someone else, but I would rather see him in a Giant match (ie. Punk, Bryan Osprey etc.)
Jericho vs Osprey will be good, but I’d rather see Osprey in there with someone who can match his athleticism. Him vs Bryan (I know he’s hurt) or Omega would feel more like an All in Match to me.
Britt for Shida should be good.
Mox vs OC…Im the wrong person to ask as I know I’m in the minority on this on, Ill just say I’m glad Mox is lower on the card.
Either way, I’m ordering this show and Punk vs Joe definitely bumped it up on the “big feel show”. I think I’m just holding it to a very high expectation as it should be the biggest show in the history of the company. For the record, if this was any other show, I wouldn’t be making any of these critiques. It will be a great show.
