Tiffany MC checks in with her takes on AEW Full Gear! Did she throw in the towel? Go lights out? Read on and see!

Full Gear

It’s time! Who will be standing after Full Gear?

Britt Baker vs Bea Priestley

I don’t think any of us really thought this match was going to happen or weren’t very excited about it until Britt Baker cut the promo of her career so far on Wednesday night.

This match was much better than I think a lot of us were expecting from either woman. This definitely had the feel of a grudge match and it was great to see them just tearing each other apart. Also, kudos to Britt for doing a great match while battling the flu, she’s a tougher chick than me, who barely wanted to get off the couch because of a cold. She didn’t rip Priestley’s jaw off, but she proved her point: Don’t fuck with Dr. Britt Baker. I am intrigued by Awesome Kong attacking Priestley, though, I would’ve thought Priestley would be someone Brandi Rhodes would want on side. Guess we will see.

Young Bucks vs Proud n Powerful

It’s the first Inner Circle vs Elite match of the night and it was a barnburner! The battle on who truly is the best tag team in the world didn’t disappoint as both teams brought their A-games. Young Bucks were great, imperiled babyfaces, and having Rock n Roll Express at ringside was a nice touch. I’m a little surprised that PnP won, but it was such a great match, that I don’t think it matters…except for the win/loss records.

I’m glad Sammy Guevara has embraced the douchebag role he seems born to play. I also love Rock n Roll Express getting some revenge on PnP and Inner Circle.

PAC vs Hangman Adam Page

This is the rubber match of this feud that started back in May and got sidelined by PAC.

This match was just as good as their previous ones, in my opinion, and definitely felt like a serious grudge match. PAC did everything he could to win the match by hook or by crook and Page showed he’d learned from their previous encounters and was able to counter many of PAC’s tricks and was able to get a decisive win over the Bastard, which is sur

Joey Janela vs Shawn Spears (with Tully Blanchard)

This storyline kind of came out of nowhere on Being the Elite and AEW Dark. Sad to say, Tully Blanchard is more over than Spears.

I really wanted to enjoy this match but I don’t. There just didn’t seem to be enough build for it to make me really care about these two feuding…or maybe that was my cold medicine. I will say it was nice to see Earl Hebner refereeing again, I was beginning to wonder what happened to him. I will say Spear tying Janela to the ringpost by his hair was pretty ingenious. I’m kind of bummed that Janela lost, but I think AEW is set on trying to make Spears a top heel, in spite of no one really caring about him.

Kip Sabian

Well, Kip Sabian and Penelope Ford (I think) are aligning which should be interesting down the road.

Triple Threat Match for the AEW Tag Team Championship – SCU vs Lucha Brothers vs Private Party

I’m still not sure how to feel about this being a Triple Threat Match. Given the controversial ending, Lucha Brothers should’ve been given a one on one rematch and Private Party getting a match with the winner on Dynamite.

That said, this was a REALLY good match! Everybody brought their A-games to the match, however, SCU would pull out the win and stand tall, but the Lucha Brothers weren’t going to take defeat lightly. This feud is NOT over, even with Daniels going in for the save.

AEW Women’s Championship Match – Riho vs Emi Sakura

It is student vs teacher for the Women’s Championship. This was another match with very little build, but with an interesting story. Emi Sakura trained Riho when Riho was just a little girl and now it’s Mentor vs Protege for the AEW Women’s championship.

This match was SOOO good. It was very technical and had pretty good storytelling from both women. In the end, the student won this match, but they got a standing ovation from the crowd. I hope we’ll see these women lock up down the road because this match was excellent.

AEW Championship Match – Chris Jericho vs Cody – If Cody loses, he will never again challenge for the AEW Championship

Well, this is TECHNICALLY the main event of the night and it’s for all the marbles. Our judges are: Dean Malenko, Arn Anderson, and Great Muta. All former WCW stars and all very familiar to the Baltimore crowd.

I really wasn’t sure about this match considering all the bells and whistles they’d added to it, but it was actually pretty good. Even the spot where Cody got busted open, which looks like it was done the hard way, but I’m REALLY hoping was a overdone blade job.

I will give both men credit for doing the best they could with what they had. Jericho isn’t nearly as sharp as he used to be but both guys gave an amazing performance.  Loved Cody’s mom getting a shot in, that was fun. I think we all expected MJF to turn on Cody and cost him the match, I don’t think anyone called ‘MJF throwing in the towel and THEN turning on Cody’ as the finish. That was a swerve. Be that as it may, Cody can no longer challenge for the AEW Championship, so now what do we do?

Lights Out Match – Kenny Omega vs Jon Moxley

Well, this is the match I signed up for, but having sat through that Jericho/Cody match, I’m even more scared it won’t live up to the hype. Loved that Mox came out through the crowd, a nod to his Dean Ambrose/Shield days. I’m not thrilled with everyone discounting Mox’s wrestling skills. I’m also not happy that he’s not wrestling in those shorts.

I have to give Omega credit, I didn’t think he really understood just what he signed up for, but he took those barb wire shots like a pro. I also disparaged using a barbwire wrapped broom, but I’m sure Mox was grateful for the give when Omega hit him in the head with it.

This match was SOOOOO GOOD! Omega bit off a lot more than he could chew, but he was a game little fucker. Not sure what he was expecting to accomplish with a board covered in mousetraps, but you do you, dude. Aside from the sheer brutality, there was some great storytelling, like the Bucks and Page trying to stop Omega from going too far, not that he listened.

Dudes, I’ve watched some crazy ass matches, and I’ve never seen many THIS crazy! I’ve never seen one where they literally took the ring apart! Did I mention how much I LOVED this match? I did? Well, I’ll say it again! I LOVED this match! I’m glad Mox won, but at the same point, the match was so good, it doesn’t matter. WHAT. A. MATCH!

That’s it for Tiffany’s AEW Takes! Tune in Wednesday for Dynamite!

AJ’s Thoughts: Five Potential Returns

With Trips in charge and already starting to bring back some people that didn’t work in Vince’s picture, AJ got an idea. Who else could we see on the horizon radar?

Published

With Trips in charge and already starting to bring back some people that didn’t work in Vince’s picture, AJ got an idea. Who else could we see on the horizon radar?

With everything going on with WWE, the one thing we have all been hyped about are all of these returns. Dakota Kai made her return at SummerSlam alongside Io and Bayley and now on last SmackDown, Karrion Kross and Scarlett made their returns in a big way against Drew McIntyre and showed the Hourglass to The Bloodline.

With all of that, there have been things in the pipeline saying Triple H’s foot isn’t off the pedal so these are 5 returns from either NXT, main roster or even Try-Outs that I would love to see happen with the new regime.

1. Johnny Gargano

Now this is a name that people have been saying, “Maybe Impact or MLW” but, what about a return? Gargano didn’t renew his contract, most likely to be with his family which is a valid and amazing reason, will never disrespect that. If he were to return, there would be a handful of great reasons. Maybe a singles run with the Intercontinental or United States but with Ciampa getting limelight in the main roster from RAW, what if we get a tag team reunion?

WWE is hurting for Tag Teams and what better than to scare off The Bloodline, loosen  the stranglehold of championships with some Do It Yourself action. DIY reunion could be amazing, especially with newer faces showing up to get championship aspirations like Kross and Ciampa. Want to break the hierarchy? Do It Yourself.

2. James Storm

This one is a little bit weird and off. On one hand, who doesn’t love the Tennessee Cowboy, Jimmy James Storm? On the other, he is 45 and getting some nagging injuries as of late. So why would I say Triple H should bring James Storm back and give him something for the main roster? One of the things I said for Gargano, we have a lack of something and The Usos might need to watch two things in the rearview.

Watch your Money and your Alcohol.

Beer Money showing up in WWE would be amazing in my personal opinion. The Bloodline jump Roode, someone in a hoodie or jacket comes up and jumps them to even the fight and as soon as one Uso remained in the ring, the figure goes down and the old stomping goes off and we hear “BEER…” and Roode looks around and gets hyped up and shouts, “…MONEY!”

3. Big Cass



Since his departure from WWE, he has done something I have said since they split him off from Enzo. Take him through the Kevin Nash School of How To Big Man. ROH and Impact are great examples that he actually cleaned up and worked on what he has to do to be good in the ring. He can work the microphone, he can work the ring so we got a new big boy to take on the WWE once again.

Now I could have said Enzo and Cass to rejoin but, I’m sure the antics of Enzo will get Cass in deep water along with the fact that I already made two tag team predictions, we don’t need another. Cass brings a lot to the table and was kind of unproven in WWE because he was just the big enforcer to the more charismatic Enzo. Give this man about six months in the ring and you have your next MASSIVE problem in the IC or US Championship scene or even more.

4. Bronson Reed



The big man from down under is a former NXT North American Champion. He looked to have a good push going with that championship but he got release. If you wonder where he went… he actually made a pit stop in Impact Wrestling as JONAH with the most fire theme song in recent history I swear… I will link the theme song and Trips… please. Get rights to this theme song. I will be a bigger Bronson Reed fan.

Bronson to me is the weird man in all of this but, I think with Triple H involved, he could get something going for him with a good singles champion run or a big threat to go through like a gatekeeper of sorts. Big boy with a great amount of athleticism? Can’t really hate on that considering the last time we saw athletic bigger people were Keith Lee and… what was that one guy? Sherman Tank with a Ferrari Engine…?

5. Bray Wyatt

And the last one is the obvious one in all of this. Yes… we have Judgment Day as the somewhat supernatural dark group but we know the true successor of the supernatural and that is “The Eater of Worlds”, “The Fiend” Bray Wyatt. This time around, I don’t think we will get the Jekyl and Hyde, Mister Rogers gimmick. I believe this time around we get full darkness and mayhem. We get the darkness and the theory of reverting back to your prime.

To make a refresher… Miz went back to being the cocky narcissist after fighting The Fiend. Finn turned back to the Prince and much more. With guys like Edge returning, maybe we see the return of the Heel Ultimate Opportunist, maybe a Fiend fight with AJ Styles to get the TN-AJ perhaps. Possibilities are endless and with a great mind like Wyatt for character and execution, I think Hunter will pick up the phone and Let Him In.

– There are clearly others that I could say, or maybe even didn’t think about, but hey, that’s the Chairshot way of Always Using Your Head. Those are just five returns that could happen and hopefully you read this before RAW or SmackDown and who knows if I get any of these right, maybe I missed an obvious one or maybe we get a giant signing that nobody thought possible. Let me and all of Chairshot know!

King’s Greatest Hits Of Jeff Hardy

As he battles his demons, Chris King looks at some more positive moments in Jeff Hardy’s career!

Published

on

Jeff Hardy WWE Smackdown

I’m sure by now you’ve heard the disturbing news that former WWE superstar and recent AEW signee Jeff Hardy, was arrested again for multiple charges including a DUI.  Hardy has had a hard and tragic road of recovery throughout the years in multiple wrestling promotions.

Not too long ago, Hardy walked out on WWE after they were rumored to have offered the former world champion to go to treatment for his substance abuse issues. Hardy refused and said that he was better but, as we saw the demons are still lurking and got the best of him again.

I have seen some nasty comments and even some distasteful memes about the AEW superstar and felt compelled to go against the grain. Instead of kicking a man when he’s down, I’m going to put together a greatest hits for the “Charismatic Enigma.”

Jeff Hardy & The TLC Match

Everyone can say that Shawn Michaels and Razor Ramon helped innovate the iconic ladder match and you are right, but Jeff Hardy and his death-defying stunts changed the concept of the match forever. The Hardy Boyz vs. The Dudley Boyz vs. Edge & Christian and their iconic TLC match should have their wing in the Hall of Fame. The risks all six superstars took for the adoration of the crowd could have ended all of their illustrious careers. In the words of Vince McMahon, It’s such good shit!

Jeff Hardy Earns The Undertaker’s Respect

On the July 1st, 2002 episode of Monday Night Raw, Hardy delivered the performance of a lifetime nearly winning the WWE Undisputed Championship from The Undertaker in an incredible ladder match. The young up-and-comer was faced with his greatest task yet, challenging for the most prestigious title in sports entertainment. Hardy showed that without a shadow of a doubt he deserved to be in the main event scene, but came within minutes of defeating Taker. At the time of the match, Hardy was still finding his footing as a singles competitor and earned the respect of the champion and legend.

Swanton Bomb From The Heavens

When I think of the daredevil Jeff Hardy, I can’t help but think of this one crazy-as-hell stunt. At WWE One Night Stand 2008, Hardy faced off against the juggernaut Umaga in a falls count anywhere match. This match was so insane as both superstars fought into the parking lot. Hardy is one of the craziest and bravest superstars, hit a Swanton Bomb off a damn stage truck onto Umaga. It’s one of the wildest things you’ll ever see.

Hardy Wins The WWE Championship 

In 2008, Hardy finally made his way to the main event title picture alongside partner Triple H. HHH was Hardy’s mentor in some sort of way which led to the daredevil achieving his lifelong dream of becoming WWE champion. At the 2008 Armageddon pay-per-view, Hardy would face HHH and longtime rival Edge in a triple-threat match for the title. In what was a great match between all three superstars, Hardy delivered a Swanton Bomb to Edge to win the illustrious championship.

Straight Edge Problems For Hardy

The following year, Hardy found himself in the way of young-up-and-comer CM Punk who is looking to make an example out of him. Punk had won the Money in the Bank briefcase for the second year in a row and took advantage of Hardy to win the world title. What started as mutual respect between both superstars changed drastically, when Punk started throwing jabs at Hardy for his drug and substance abuse real-life issues. Punk would form his infamous stable known as the Straight Edge Society. This is a very underrated feud and you should go back and watch it in its entirety. The promos are gold.

The Hardy Boyz Return To WWE

Both Matt and Jeff Hardy found success in multiple other wrestling promotions including Ring of Honor, and TNA during their time away from WWE. Both brothers were struggling with their vices and made poor life choices but straightened up their act over the years. In 2017, the Hardy Boyz would face longtime rivals The Young Bucks in ROH. The following night the adored tag team would make their incredible return to WWE at WrestleMania 33. Matt and Jeff would be named the final team in the Fatal 4-way ladder match for the Raw Tag Team Championships. The pop these two received was insane and very much deserved. They would go on to win the match and win the titles to capitalize on their momentum.

Jeffery Nero Hardy Makes AEW Debut

From 2017-to 2022 Jeff Hardy would find himself pigeonholed in the mid-card title picture. He would have feuds with a plethora of superstars including Samoa Joe, and Randy Orton. Orton and Hardy had a nasty Hell in a Cell match back in 2018. Earlier this year, Hardy was seen running around after the 24/7 Championship, which was disappointing to see. After being genuinely unhappy in WWE, Hardy would make his AEW debut on the March 9th episode of AEW Dynamite. Hardy would come to the aid of his brother and longtime partner.

This week news broke that Hardy had been arrested for multiple charges including a DUI. While it’s easy to beat a man while he’s down, how about we uplift and try to encourage him to get the help he needs.

As a longtime wrestling fan, I have the utmost respect for Hardy and wish him the best of luck in his battle with addiction.
