Cole is an indy main event wrestling machine. Kinda like the 70s and 80s long match/ in great shape/everyone likes working with him type dudes. Like a Steamboat with cooler music and a little crew. Until he gets to having banger matches again with stakes, I think he’s gonna seem disappointing. Like youre asking, he has basically never LOOKED like anything special. In that way, he lacks the Steamboat thing (Ricky looked like a damn tank).

Back to Cole, he can grow on you. That’s how he got me. I didn’t gaf about him in ROH or NXT until he got into some big matches. He’s great but he’s niche great. Even with his over ass song and the entrance, he’s not ‘he’ll make anything feel huge so just throw him on tv’ great.

That would be CM motherfucking Punk. He’s got the Midas touch. He’s knighting so many people in AEW right now. The validation he just gave to Wardlow? Man, he might’ve gotten Wardlow silly paydays for the next decade at least with the way he took those power bombs. The way he fucked up to get into them and then only MJF being an ass saved him? Just wow. Classic, smart, wonderful, giving, cool. Punk is a perfect combo of a lot of good shit right now. Punk basically lost to Wardlow the other night. I loved it and it totally worked on me. I want to see if he’s gonna Febreze Spears somehow too. It’s not like Spears doesn’t have decent size and solid work in general. He’s overdue to be made to look like something worth a damn. May as well!

And hey, I didn’t see this Punk AEW run being this complete and great so far. The honeymoon is over maybe but he’s doing God’s work. I wish Edge was banging out goodness anything like this for instance.
