        Also, I'm not one bit sad at Edge being in the title picture. Its a great story to be told.

          If NJPW and AEW are working together now, they owe it to themselves to have Kota and Kenny run the table and face off at WK for the biggest main event in history.

          Problem with the Edge thing is he didnt need to win the Rumble to be in the title picture. They continue to refuse to make new stars and push new young talent. Thats why you get Goldberg and a nearing 50 Edge.

            The problem in the last 40 years is every time multiple companies work together, one tries to fuck the other over and it all comes crashing down: Pro Wrestling USA (AWA, JCP, Memphis), The All Together Alliance in Japan (AJPW, BJW, ZERO1, NOAH---NOAH split and jumped with NJPW), and none have worked together well since WWF expansion outside of the New England and Tri-State expansion. I have my hopes up that AEW, IMPACT, NWA, and NJPW can all work together. The wildness in all of this is the secondary relations market: AEW has agreements with DDT/NOAH and AAA; NJPW has agreements with ROH and CMLL. Although NWA and ROH had been working with each other until Scurll was fired.

            With that said, Kota vs. Kenny at WK16 would be great. Title vs. Title? Can't go the distance, you'd piss off a ton of fanbases (NJPW, AEW, puro, and wrestling fans altogether). Japan doesn't do Double DQs and Double Countouts.

            I get that. They could've made a star out of Damian Priest and had him clean house, let it come down to him and Edge, and Edge eliminate Priest. Although, knowing WWE THEY WILL FUCK THIS UP.... They are going to do Miz & Morrison vs. Bad Bunny and a tag partner at Mania. My heart says it'll be Damian Priest. My gut and my mind knowing how WWE thinks, it'll be FUCKING Booker T.

            • Damian Priest is already 38. Punishment Martinez has been around for awhile

              The Men's rumble had 2 guys in it under 30

              Dominic Mysterio and Otis who's 29

              • Dynamites main event was nuts. AEW knows how to embrace chaos.

                Also, you might wanna watch the Hardy/Page bar segment again. I missed *it*, and I know others did to.

                • So I get turning Apollo heel because it should've been done MONTHS ago, but turning Otis heel? WTF?

                  UGH...

                  Oh, just because we've been talking about old people....

                  Keiji Mutoh, aka The Great Muta, is now the GHC Heavyweight Champion. Even though NOAH (and even All Japan for that matter) are no longer at the top of the Japanese puro food chain, the title is still considered that prestigious (with the IWGP Heavyweight and Triple Crown Heavyweight). Mutoh is the third wrestler ever to hold the IWGP, TC, and GHC titles.

                  Jun Akiyama, a former All Japan and NOAH standout, is now the KO-D Heavyweight Champion (DDT's top title). He left AJPW as the CEO/Booker to join NOAH and work with Mutoh, Akiyama, and Marifuji to build up the NOAH and DDT brands within CyberFight.

                    • Perfect, Piper, Rude, Owen, Nak, Davey, Jake= never world champion

                      Miz= 2 times

                      Comment


                      • Outside of Nak (which is a travesty), its just a product of the times. The belts hopped around a lot more since the late 90s

                        The Miz is a very guilty pleasure for me so Im actually okay with it. Hes very good at making you want to see him get his ass kicked.

                          Perfect was AWA Champion

                          Piper eh... that's a fucking travesty.

                          Rude was NWA World Champion, although would've been WWF Champion had any not refused to work with Hogan in late-90 / early-91.

                          Owen: heard a story that Owen was going to win the title at some point later the year that he died.

                          Davey: Victim of his own (coke, steroids)

                          Jake: Never wanted it

                          Nak: Fucking Vince.

                            I clearly only meant this in regards to WWF/E.

                            Id also include Martel in the list, who was also champion else where
