I think Ito is funny and would welcome her doing more with AEW, but after Johnny Elite, I was hoping for a bigger name for the women (Athena, Taya, or even Nixon Newell for example).

I found this one a bigger letdown than Johnny (by a lot).

I’m sure he doesn’t. Bear in mind though that this is a company that lost a sponsorship because Nick Gage used a pizza cutter during a picture-in-picture advertisement for Dominoes. And it’s a company that’s status with the new ownership of WarnerMedia is a little less assured than it once was.

Don’t get me wrong, I love Punk, I share his values, I respect him for taking that stance. I’m just looking at it from a strictly commercial perspective. And, to a degree, having regard to his personal welfare given the class of person likely to be offended by that shirt is not usually the class to respond to a grievance in a thoughtful, articulate or reasonable way.

It's the second time he's done it. Both times in Texas. The first time didn't cost them any advertisers.

Further, I see no evidence that domino's ended their sponsorship. I see that they threatened to, but no articles saying that they did.

I mean seriously, could they not be making the finals for each look more obvious? Really lame booking, TK.

We CANNOT let the “what” chant infiltrate AEW shows.

Crowds who do that make me want to change the channel.

I don’t even care if it is a promotion, show, or segment that I don’t think is good.

I will blame that stupid chant every time.

What a waste, TK needs to pump the breaks on theses “huge debuts”, since Bryan Danielson they have all been weak. I don’t get why they didn’t bring in Athena (she’s from Houston)
To be fair, did he say these would be “huge debuts”? He might have and I just missed it, but I don’t remember these being hyped new additions on tv.

I didn’t even know they were definitely going to be debuts at all until this afternoon.

Don’t get me wrong, I wasn’t super excited about either one, and I DO think that the Itoh reveal was a letdown after Johnny Elite.

But the non-hyped “joker” has given us people like Matt Sydell, Lio Rush, and (a per appearance) Itoh before.

Athena would have been awesome but it’s not like he promised a main event-er but then delivered Johnny and Itoh.

Do we even know if they are full-time signed talents yet?

Even the Swerve Strickland signing (which I think was awesome) wasn’t a hyped signing or billed as a huge debut.

And unless I missed it, have Johnny or Itoh even received the “… is All Elite” graphic yet? Don’t they usually do that pretty immediately if it is a signed talent?
Everything just seemed off tonight outside the BCC/JAS promo. And I now find myself using a term I didn't think I would use so soon for AEW... They're becoming predictable. Makes me think the reports coming from backstage might be more true than not.
