Excuse me while I overreact to AEW All Out 2021


Just some randomized thoughts after AEW All Out provided me with a great reminder that I love pro wrestling and everything it can be:

  • This was the greatest night in the history of our sport
  • AEW All Out 2021 is one of the best shows of the past decade, probably past two decades, maybe past three decades.
  • Kenny Omega is an insanely talented wrestler who was having a better match with Christian Cage than it seemed like because the crowd was kind of tired by that point, and rightfully so
  • Adding Bryan Danielson, Adam Cole, and Ruby Soho pretty much solidifies the fact that AEW has the best roster of any wrestling promotion on Earth right now
  • Hearing the crowd sing along with Jungle Boy’s theme song, Tarzan Boy, is still incredibly fun and obviously always will be until the end of time
  • CM Punk looked absolutely incredible considering the dude hasn’t wrestled a match in seven freaking years
  • Still kind of wanted Sting to hit him with a Scorpion Death Drop while Punk had his back turned to him, because I’m still a Sting mark and whatever I don’t need to explain this to you, I just liked the idea in the moment, okay?
  • If Britt Baker had a run through NXT a couple years ago, folks would treat her like they treat the Four Horsewomen. She’s absolutely a huge star in the making
  • The Young Bucks and Lucha Brothers had maybe the greatest steel cage match of all time, and definitely the best one I’ve seen in many, many years
  • Even the people I generally feel like I could do without, personally speaking, are doing entertaining things worth watching, and it’s just so refreshing that that’s the case. I never outright want to run away from my fandom while watching AEW, let alone change the channel
  • God, I just love pro wrestling so much right now

Okay, that’s all.

You go ahead now.
