  1. It was just a matter of time until shows were cancelled. A show without fans shouldn't be an option. Fans are an essential part of the show. We'll see what happens. Dunno about WWE. For AEW i don't think they would put on shows without fans. If i had to make a guess i would either think, that they use the Dark episodes to air live on TV or they do a review of the first couple of months and mix matches and storylines off with some new promos. If i would be AEW, i would even think of airing some or all PPV matches. Just do a mix up with new promos and old matches in some form and hope, that it will all be over soon. Through i think it will just get started. The numbers are exploding worldwide. Not only here in Europe but in the US as well. We'll see how the virus will do once the high temperatures get started, but i personally think we will have multiple months ahead without any progress. It will be interesting through for how long those events will be cancelled. If the standard rule is, that 1 person infects 3 others, we might need to get up to 66,66 % of infected population, until we probably reach a level were 1 infected person only can infect another one statistically and than maybe shows can continue again. Obviously just if all the infected and healed people are immune against the virus and there is no mutation. We'll see, but i guess a tough year is ahead of us.
  2. I don't know how you see it, but Dynamite was simply amazing those last 2 weeks. If somebody asks me, why i love wrestling, than those are the shows i can show them. Great matches, great segments, great storytellling and a good mix of wrestler that are getting accepted by the crowd. It's just a fantastic crowd overall and even the women's division was able to shine over the last 2 weeks. I love it and i can't wait for Revolution.
  3. There is a first photo of the steel cage for todays match between Cody and Wardlow. That cage looks huge. Definitely bigger than i'm used to see. I'm super excited for Cody vs Wardlow tonight. I guess Cody will win, but i hope Wardlow will look phenomenal in there.
  4. I got a question. How big is TNT, comparing it to your regular television landscape? I heard, that TNT doubled their tv viewers in the current Dynamite timeslot with that show. Here in germany i lalways receive questions regarding that rating. As far as i know there should be 90 million households who can receive TNT. How big is TNT in comparison to all the other channel? I could just speculate. Everything you hear is that TNT is very satisfied with what they got in AEW. Is the landscape that big, that all the channels split up that many viewers? I found a stat stating, that TNT was averaging 1,9 million viewers in primetime slots in 2014. Placed 2nd just behind USA, who averaged 2,3 millioen viewers. That seems to be very, very low numbers for a country with 327 millionen inhabitants. There are the top 5 television networks as far as i know, with the top 5 biggest tv channel. I also know, that there are so many regional channels, so my guess would be that your tv landscape is splitted up into a lot of channels, who are all competing for the viewers. Which is why tradional cable tv channels like TNT just have 1,9 million viewers in their primetime. TNT probably draws a lot of viewers via their sport programs. Don't they show the NBA? So that probably increases their average rating a lot. Than ofc wrestling shows in general are like series. They provide a safe show, drawing a safe number of people. They are reliable show. So i would guess, that it's rather "cheap" for TNT to air AEW Dynamite once every week. They are getting a reliable primetime show and although it's not averaging the viewers, that TNT is averaging in their other primetime slots, they got a show doubling the numbers in that specific slot and maybe even numbers, that are comparing good to their other non-sport primetime shows? Especially with the new tv deal, it's obvious for me, that TNT is more than satisfied with what they have in AEW Dynamite. I just have no idea, if my assumptions are right and how big TNT is in general in the US in comparison to the other channel. It seems to be one of the biggest cable tv channels, but i don't know how big they are overall in comparison to all the other channel. Are they in the top 10 overall?
  5. It still feels surreal. We're Super Bowl Champions and writing this gets me tears of joy in my eyes. I just wrote an essay in german about the importance, our way to this vicotry and what it feels like. It's crazy. I can't imagine, what it must feels like for lifelong Chiefs fans. For all those Chiefs fans out there, maybe living all their lives without a Super Bowl victory and finally got one, must feel like the greatest feeling on earth and a thousand times more emotional than everything that i can feel right now, after beeing a fan of the game and the Chiefs for just 6 years. I'm so happy for Andy Reid and this team. I'm so happy for the fans. It's absolutely unbelievable. Since this team started building, especially since Andy Reid became our head coach it was all in the making. Unfortunately there are legends out there, that aren't part of the team anymore to witness and get their well deserved victory. Just in those past years guys like Eric Berry, Derrick Johnson, Jamaal Charles, Tamba Hali and even Justin Houston. All those guys played a big part for this team under Andy Reid. Hell, i can't forget about Alex Smith. What a great guy and what a phenomenal kind of person he seems to be and i couldn't thank him more from beeing a professional and helping growing Mahomes to the QB he is today. I'm so happy that he's still alive after his brutal leg injury. I'm not sure if he's every coming back to the field, but if he does u can be sure that i will be rooting hard for this guy. The moment we drafted Mahomes was amazing. A moment of joy. I never would have thought, that he would be THAT good. I was confident, that we're the perfect place for him to learn and grow and i was confident, that he would be good here, but i would have never thought he would be that kind of a QB. Last year was so tough. Losing against the Patriots was one of the most heartbreaking moments in my football fanship. That offside penalty of Dee Ford that neglected Bradys interception. The coin toss we lost and that gave Brady the ball in his hands, to do Brady stuff and picking apart our secondary was so tough to take. This team really learned from it. It feels like Mahomes learned from it and put this years teams on his back in probably one of the greatest postseason runs of all time. Making huge comebacks in all 3 postseason games. That's just from a different world. Bob Sutton left the team after the last season and Steve Spagnuolo was named the new DC. He changed the defense from a 3-4 unit to a 4-3 unit. We lost important guys, but got important guys back. Guys like the Honey Badger who were absolute leaders of this team. Brett Veach and als our former GM John Dorsey did a phenomenal job to build this team. This years draft was pretty good for us. Veach did a good job and found players during the season to complement the team. Mike Pennel. Stefan Wisniewski. Those 2 guys played important roles in this team. And finally Andy Reid. He finally got his ring. He finally showed the middle finger to all those critics and he finally cemented his legacy, that will end in a Hall of Fame honour one day. What he's doing for our team is phenomenal and what he's doing in this league is phenomenal as well. One of the greatest coaches ever in this league and a coach that left his foot prints all over this league in those last decades. His offenses are innovated and his coaching tree is unprecedented and he's probably still not done yet. There is a story of Chiefs.com about his career and his life that's amazing to read. https://www.chiefs.com/news/longforms/the-andy-reid-story It's just surreal. Nobody can ever take this away from us. Nobody! I do want to say something to the 49ers fans. I think to know how a loss like that must feel. Last years loss agains the Patriots was devastating and there were a few more during the last few years. It's really tough to swallow and although i would like to say some kind words, like that you'll get your chance to get back to the Super Bowl and win it, it's unfortunately not as easy to get back. It's a chance that might just comes around once in a lifetime. And still you have a phenomenal team. Your defense is absolutely great. It makes so much fun to watch it. Your front 7 is so good and your D-Line is so young, that opposing O-Lines will have headaches to block them. Your team is young, so I hope it's not the end of the way for you. Hopefully your team can learn from this defeat and come back stronger as ever before and maybe you'll get another chance and if you get it, you're going to take it. I'm sure of that.
  6. Super Bowl LIV: 49ers vs Chiefs

  7. Super Bowl LIV: 49ers vs Chiefs

    WE DID IT GUYS, WE DID IT!
  8. Super Bowl LIV: 49ers vs Chiefs

    Today is the day. All or nothing, but if a team can win it all, it's this team we're having right now. Let's go CHIEFS!
  9. I think i'm staying out of this thread for the game and probably not checking to much online. I want to wish the 49ers fans good luck for the game. Let it be fair withouth any controverses. Just let the better team win the game. For the Chiefs it definitely seems to be a once in a lifetime chance for greatness. Who knows when or if we ever come back to the game. It's 50 years in the making, so i'm really excited for the game. Nervous, but excited. Just 7 hours left until kick-off.
  10. Super Bowl LIV: 49ers vs Chiefs

    I'm super nervous about the game. Never felt anything near that and that's probably how it should be. I'm happy that both teams are as healthy as possible, so may the best team win it all and hopefully it will be us. That's a once in a lifetime chance.
  11. Playoff Week 3: Tennessee at Arrowhead

    We did it guys! We did it! No words for it. Now party tonight, but get to work tomorrow. We're not done, yet.
  12. What Super Bowl matchup do you want to see?

    Chiefs vs Packers SB 1 Rematch would be an intersting notch from the history of the game. Mahomes vs Rodgers would be a fun matchup and who knows if we would ever see it, if we're not getting it yet. The next time those two teams are scheduled to meet would be in 4 years and Rodgers would become 40. I guess he's still playing by then, but who knows. I'd like to see itat least once.
  13. That's a great deal for Scurll. I would have loved it to see him come to AEW, but it just makes sense for him to stay in ROH and take this chance. If he has the freedom he's supposed to have and is integrated as a booker, who knows what comes around for him. I heard he would like to start a relationship or strengthen the relationship of ROH with NJPW, NWA and AEW. We'll see what happens. Also another big story just popped up. TNT and AEW extended their TV deal until 2023 and the most interesting fact of the statement is the 2nd TV show that was mentioned. TNT seems to be very satisfied. Rightfully so, as the ratings are better than expected. I just hope it's going to be Dark, that gets put on TV. I wouldn't like to keep Dark and get an additional 3rd show, as then i fear it might be to much wrestling on a weekly basis. Here the news: I'd like to see the conditions through. As i said i think TNT can be very satisfied with the ratings, so i think they got a good deal. Hopefully good enough to stay on healthy feets. A 2nd weekly will also help AEW putting out new talent. Some of them already could be used a little bit more, so it would be nice for them to get more exposure on a 2nd show, which is especially very good for the younger guys to gain more experience. Then they can also extend their roster, without a fear, that someone is buried under the masses. Some speculationes were circulating around, like Brian Cage, who was mentioned above or guys like Ryback or younger wrestlers like Chris Bey. It going to be an exciting future.

  14. Playoff Week 3: Tennessee at Arrowhead

    I'm really nervous about this one. I think the Titans are a matchup nightmare for us. They are strong on both lines and their run game is phenomenal. We lost the last 4 games against the Titans and 3 of them were played at home. It's a really tough game for us. It's easy to say, that we need to stop the run, but we need to stop the run somehow, but that's my main concern. I have no faith in the team stopping Henry from having a great day. If we can't stop the run, we need to score as much points as possible, as they will eat up a lot of time and control the game. That might also be a problem for our offense, as it might be less realistic that it gets in a roll like it did yesterday, if it has to stay off the field for 7 or 8 minutes. I think it's also obvious, that we can't have another bad start like we had yesterday. If we have, than we're done, as the Titans will just run it down our throats. It's going to be tough and i don't see us as clear favourites. Still it's the AFC Championship game and it's again in Arrowhead. We just need to win it this time. No excuse, we need to get it done.
