One thing I'd like to see AEW do is replace Justin Roberts. His voice, to me, just harkens back to a very lame time in WWE and I can't unhear it. They need someone with a deeper, more 'professional event' type voice as the announcer.

I agree, his announcing is grating to me. He reminds me of that stale AF period of WWE when he was announcing there. I don't have any good recommendations but someone with a supremely unique announcing voice like Howard Finkel would be amazing. I'd give Joel Gertner a go and see how the fans respond

They should shoot for the stars and get Joey Styles as their ring announcer / commentator.

I thought Styles had completely left the wrestling industry over the Evolve situation and had pretty much said he'd never come back.

Something else I was just remembering is that I think Marty Scurll should be showing up in AEW soon. I'd love for them to put him in a stable with MJF kayfabe going after Cody and The Elite for ditching him when they formed AEW.

Marty's contract is done on November 30 I believe. I agree he's a lock for AEW just be his association with everyone there. However I don't think Marty will go with MJF, he would be overshadowed by MJF's mastery on the mic. Scurll needs his own story, before teasing and rejoining the Elite on a slow burn. I hope he brings Brody King with him too, that would be money.

On a somewhat similar note, Oney Lorcan has requested his release from WWE. Apparently he requested it at the end of last month, and he has already changed his Twitter name back to Biff Busick.

If they grant it to him, he'll do well on the indies. That dude couldn't put on a bad match if he tried.

I really hope that KO ends up being the 4th member of Team Ciampa after UE attacked him against HHH's orders last night. Then on Sunday he could turn on team Raw and help NXT win the SS match.

First of all, I would have totally marked out for Egg man

Second I would expect a couple of betrayals on Sunday. Kevin Owens definitely one. Dakota Kai is the other.

Good segment with Punk tonight, basically he told Rollins to get off of social media, that he's doing himself no favors with it. Of course he got a response from Rollins calling him a coward.

What they should do, *IF* Punk is going to be Orton's partner is have Orton look for a partner all show, then just before heading out to the ring find one who isn't Punk. Then immediately head to the ring, once there do the standard wait for partner's music to hit and then scratch scratch "Look in my eyes, what do you see? Cult of personality."

Think that might have been one of the better Mox matches I've seen either as Mox or Ambrose.

Mox and Allin have great chemistry. Their characters are a good clash with no promos, and their styles are blend of masterful pace and reckless chaos. That's the kind of main event match that sends you home happy.
