Cook’s AEW All Out 2020 Gambling Picks

Back at it again with the gambling odds! Cook let’s us know what the current lines on each match are for All Out!



All Elite Wrestling presents All Out this Saturday night! Nine big matches are currently scheduled, and there are ways to gamble on the outcomes because it’s 2020 and we need to bet on something. Why not bet on Jon Moxley or MJF? Or, hell, why not bet on a dentist having a match in a dentist office?

The lines come to us from BetOnline via betwwe.com. Reminder: these gambling picks are for entertainment purposes only.

Big Swole (-177) vs. Dr. Britt Baker D.M.D. (+125)

This feud’s been going ever since Dr. Baker injured her knee, and now they’re facing off on the Buy-In. What’s a Tooth and Nail Match? Reportedly, it’s a cinematic style match that will take place at Dr. Baker’s dentist office. That has to give the advantage to Britt Baker, right? Big Swole has never been to her office, and I know whenever I go to a new dentist’s office I’m a little concerned about it. Plus you have to worry about Rebel, Penelope Ford and whoever else the Good Doctor might have on her side. As far as I know, Big Swole just has Lil’ Swole, and she hasn’t been signed yet.

The Young Bucks (-455) vs. Jurassic Express (+280)

These two teams won a 8-man match on Dynamite where the winning team would face off at All Out. Jungle Boy & Luchasaurus could certainly use a big win here on PPV, but the Young Bucks are fixing to become the top contenders for the next tag team champions. Also, they’re in a pretty bad mood these days. Should be a good solid match, and expect to see a darker side of Nick & Matt than you’re used to seeing.

Dark Order (-400) vs Cardona, Sky, Natural Nightmares (+250)

There was a time where the Dark Order was easily the worst thing going in AEW. Those days have passed now that the Exalted One, Mr. Brodie Lee, has gotten his men in gear. I also think Evil Uno putting a shirt on has helped the group immensely. Lee, Uno, Stu Grayson & “totally not a member” Colt Cabana will take on the Friends of Cody here, and one has to like the Dark Order’s chances. They have more people waiting in the wings, including the Queen Slayer Anna Jay to take care of Brandi Rhodes should Cody’s wife try to intervene.

Although…wouldn’t this be a fine time to establish the next challenger for the TNT Championship? I sure think so! Either Matt Cardona or Scorpio Sky would make sense in that role. I say go with the Friends of Cody getting a little revenge over somebody that isn’t Brodie Lee. Could get some good money there.

Casino Battle Royale
Darby Allin: +125
Lance Archer: +175
Brian Cage: +400
Eddie Kingston: +400
Jake Hager: +650
Pentagon Jr: +1000
Ricky Starks: +1000
Rey Fenix: +1500
Ortiz: +3300
Santana: +3300
Shawn Spears: +3300
Austin Gunn: +4000
Billy Gunn: +4000
Chuck Taylor: +4000
The Blade: +4000
The Butcher: +4000
Trent: +4000

We’ve got seventeen men announced for a twenty-one man match, so there’s a pretty fair chance that the winner isn’t even listed here. That’d bust some brackets. Darby’s listed as the favorite but I’d think it’d be pretty easy to toss him out of there. Out of every serious contender, Lance Archer is the one that hasn’t challenged for the AEW Championship yet. I’m going to go with him and say that EVERYBODY DIES.

Matt Hardy (-400) vs. Sammy Guevara (+250)

If Matt Hardy loses, he has to leave AEW. Unless this is leading to a new Hardy character that will deny any connection with the vessel hosting it, I don’t see Sammy getting the win in this Broken Rules Match. There’s a slight chance, and it might not hurt to throw a few bucks on it, but it seems like Matt’s match.

Orange Cassidy (-139) vs. Chris Jericho (+100)

Jericho was originally the favorite in this one, but the money’s come in on Cassidy over the last couple of days. You can win a Mimosa Mayhem match via pinfall, submission or by tossing your opponent into a vat of mimosa. I feel like Orange Cassidy is the smart pick here because Jericho’s idea of a good time these days probably involves swimming in a vat of mimosa. The first match between these two was really good, the second wasn’t mostly due to Jericho, so hopefully he brings his A game for the rubber match.

Hikaru Shida (-625) vs Thunder Rosa (+350)

Thunder Rosa’s showing against Serena Deeb impressed enough people to move this line a little bit closer. That being said, Shida is still an overwhelming favorite to defend her AEW Women’s Championship against the NWA Women’s Champion. Call me crazy, but this could be a good spot to make some money. I see no problem with Thunder Rosa holding the AEW & NWA Women’s Championships for a minute, especially since I see no immediate challengers for Shida on the horizon. Give her the belt for a little while & shake things up in the women’s division. Why not?

FTR (-500) vs Page/Omega (+300)

There have been many twists & turns in the saga of Kenny Omega & Hangman Adam Page. They’ve had problems getting along but have proven to have great chemistry in the ring. They’ve held the tag team titles for most of 2020 while other tag teams have scrapped for positions in the rankings. FTR didn’t have to do much of that, they came right in and won their way to the top. Now with Tully Blanchard by their side, they seem like a sure bet to be the next AEW Tag Team Champions. Will it happen at All Out?

I think so. FTR has played all the right notes since entering the company, including creating more dissension between Page & the Elite. They revealed their scheme on the last Dynamite, which didn’t seem like a terribly smart idea, but will that hurt them? Probably not. Page is struggling to figure things out while Omega seems to be reverting to his more villainous persona from his Bullet Club days. It’ll be interesting to see where they go from here.

Jon Moxley (-250) vs MJF (+175)

MJF’s show-closing bloodying of Moxley on this Wednesday’s Dynamite only served to make him more of an underdog in this match. We all know the old saying: “Stand tall on the go home show, lose on the PPV.” I don’t think Jon Moxley losing this match is very likely, as his title run seems to have more legs in it and MJF isn’t quite ready to be champion yet. I have no doubt he’ll get there, but right now doesn’t quite seem like his time. MJF’s election hopes will be dashed by Dictator Jon. It happens.

Greg DeMarco’s Good, Bad, & Ugly: WWE Smackdown On FOX (November 3, 2023)

It’s the go-home show for WWE Crown Jewel, and Smackdown is in full force! As is Greg’s Good, Bad, & Ugly review!



WWE Smackdown John Cean Solo Sikoa

It’s the go-home show for WWE Crown Jewel, and Smackdown is in full force! As is Greg’s Good, Bad, & Ugly review!

WWE Smackdown On FOX sends us home for the Crown Jewel premium live event, so it has to be strong. But is it? Maybe it’s Good. Possibly it’s Bad? I sure hope it isn’t Ugly.

Let’s find out!

If you haven’t checked out Mitchell’s Results & Review for this episode of Smackdown, go and check it out now!


  • Roman Reigns & LA Knight In Ring Promo – Last week LA Knight got the better of Roman, so it made sense for Roman to get it all back this week. And he did just that. “Redneck Cosplay of my cousin” was a fantastic line from Roman Reigns, but “I ain’t here to finish something” from LA Knight got a bigger reaction from me. Roman calling himself the megastar was also a phenomenal line. Good stuff all around.
  • Kevin Owens vs. Austin Theory – Kevin Patrick keeping “The 150 million hit man” schtick going for Austin Theory is so great. Milk that for all it’s worth! “What is your issue with Kevin Owens’ face?” “LOOK AT IT, MAN!” Absolutely brilliant shit. “How’s that feel, idiot?” Grayson Waller should be on commentary every week, for every match. And this match, by the way, was really good. Austin Theory has settled into his current role, showing he understands the WWE cycle. And Owens is Owens.
  • Backstage Series Of Events – We had the Bianca Belair interview where she was attacked by Damage Ctrl, followed by The Street Profits & Bobby Lashley running into Logan Paul and then B-Fab. Flowed well, no issues for me.
  • Chelsea Green & Piper Niven vs. Shotzi Blackheart & Charlotte Flair – No surprise that Charlotte Flair was the partner, and no surprise that Alba Fyre and Isla Dawn made an appearance. This was a perfectly fine TV match–didn’t set the world on fire, but also wasn’t Bad or Ugly. This was a step in this story, and an effective one.
  • The Brawling Brutes vs. Pretty Deadly in a Good Ol’ Fashioned Donnybrook! – Shout out to Sheamus, whose return I look forward to seeing. With Ridge really coming into his own, we’re to the point where all four of these guys range from good to great to fantastic on any given night. Putting Pretty Deadly into any “manly fight” is always guaranteed entertainment. Really, Pretty Deadly in anything is typically guaranteed entertainment. Pretty Deadly picking up the win was not a shock, although I’d have loved to see Butch and Ridge Holland pick up a win here. Given the rules (or lack thereof) of this match, Pretty Deadly basically won clean here.
  • Rey Mysterio vs. Logan Paul Crown Jewel Weigh-In – A very effective way to pretape something, which saves time as part of a double taping. It was essentially a go home promo, but done in a different way. I liked it. It also smoothly transitions into the rundown of the card by the commentary team, which I always appreciate.
  • Bianca Belair vs. Bayley – If you know me, you know that Bianca can be hit or miss for me. She can’t “work with anyone,” but she can definitely work with Bayley. Bayley, of course, is money with anything she does. Both women delivered a main event quality match, and no one should complain that Bianca Belair won. She’s challenging for the Women’s Championship in less than 24 canon hours, so she needs to win. Bayley is a made woman, losing here doesn’t hurt her one bit.
  • “Just Enough Nick” Nick Aldis Usage – Triple H has done an amazing job of establishing Nick Aldis. Three weeks in and he already “belongs.” Much of that is attributed to how Aldis carries himself. But they are also using him to the right degree. It’s not too much, but it’s also not too little. Adam Pearce could miss two weeks of Raw and when he shows back up, it all makes sense. For Aldis, he needs to be very present, but not overbearing or “shoved down our throats.” They have the right balance.


  • Solo Sikoa & John Cena In Ring Promo – John Cena, lost voice and all, completely buries Solo Sikoa. He “cooks” Solo, as promised. And, as Cena does, he makes Solo look like crap. Bargain Basement Tazz Rip Off? C’mon man, you’re better than that. But here’s the real problem: what happens if Solo loses? Cena made him look like a loser, and then proves that he is? Solo has to win this match. If he doesn’t, and Cena is gone, then Solo is left out in the cold. And you don’t want to do that to Solo Sikoa at this point of his career.


  • Misstep for Theory – Referencing Halloween as if it hadn’t already happened. You can edit this episode–c’mon, man!
  • Kevin Owens’ Crotch Chop – C’mon, man! We’re better than crotch chops in 2023.

The Verdict

  • Good – 8
  • Bad – 1
  • Ugly – 2

In all honesty this was a damn good show. Milwaukee showed out considering they’d already seen 2 hours of Smackdown before this was taped. Good on them, and good on WWE for a great go home show for Crown Jewel.

Interesting of note – the pictures for this show that are posted to the WWE website are uploaded in the order the matches and segments were recorded, not the order in which they aired. Just a little tidbit that I found interesting.

Greg DeMarco’s Wrestling Ratings Report: Monday Night Raw (10/30/2023) & WWE NXT (10/31/2023)

Greg DeMarco takes a look at your Monday and Tuesday night TV ratings. What do they mean? Do they matter?

Greg DeMarco takes a look at your Monday and Tuesday night TV ratings. What do they mean? Do they matter?

Settle in for a look at this week’s ratings for WWE Monday Night Raw and WWE NXT Halloween Havoc Night 2! Both were up against some stiff competition–let’s see how they fared!

WWE Monday Night Raw (October 30, 2023)

  • Hour #1 – 1.466 million viewers, .44 demo rating, #6 for the night on cable
  • Hour #2 – 1.450 million viewers, .46 demo rating #5 for the night on cable
  • Hour #3 – 1.256 million viewers, .39 demo rating, #8 for the night on cable

WWE Monday Night Raw for October 30, 2023 faced some stiff competition on Monday night. You had Monday Night Football as normal–which aired on both ESPN and ABC–along with the usual peripheral shows (Monday Night Football Postgame, Monday Night Football Kickoff, SportsCenter, and the Monday Night Countdown, which factored into the Top 10). 6.851 million people watched Monday Night Football on ESPN, a number that more than doubles when you factor in ABC.

What does it all mean? It means that outside of Monday Night Football–on cable–WWE Monday Night Raw was the top rated show. If you take away all things NFL, Raw finishes #1, #2, and #3 for the night. Viewership did drop off for our 3, but that’s the 10 PM hour that sees kids go to bed and people checking on the Monday Night Football and World Series games.

Speaking of which, that’s another factor to consider–the World Series! 8.126 million people watched the World Series on FOX (not really that good), with another 8.356 million watching Monday Night Football on ABC (yes, more than the World Series) for a decent-at-best Lions vs Raiders match-up.

In summary, it was another successful night for WWE Monday Night Raw, which was the go-home edition of the program. You can check out my Good Bad & Ugly look at Monday’s Raw, where I gave the show an overall “Good” rating. Haven’t watched yet? Give Mitchell’s live coverage a read.

Listen to this week’s edition of Bandwagon Nerds!

WWE NXT Halloween Havoc Night 2 (October 31, 2023)

  • Entire Broadcast – 674 thousand viewers, .20 demo rating, #6 for the night on cable

WWE NXT (Halloween Havoc Night 2) for October 31, 2023, had to deal with a myriad of external factors this week. First is the most obvious–it was Halloween! Many people had plans, Trick-Or-Treat escapades and more. That right there will be a detriment to any ratings results. Add in two live NBA games, each drawing over a million viewers for TNT. Combine it all together and WWE NXT was the top rated program that wasn’t sports programming on TNT or ESPN. Hell, the entire Top 12 consisted of ESPN and TNT sports programming, plus NXT.

It’s easy to call this a failure since viewership was lost week over week. But that’s very shortsighted. The fact remains that NXT was among the most watched programming for the night, holding its own against live sports and sports-peripheral programming.  If you’re WWE and USA Network, you’re nothing but happy with these results.

NXT, of course, featured the second week of Halloween Havoc, headlined by Ilja Dragunov defending the NXT Championship against Carmelo Hayes in the third match of their trilogy. Along with that you had The Creed Brothers in a Tables, Ladders, and Scares (Chairs) match with Angel Garza & Humberto Carrillo, Lola Vice vs. Kelani Jordan in the finals of the Women’s Breakout Tournament, and much more.

I’d call the Tuesday program a ratings success. My Good, Bad, & Ugly review of NXT Halloween Havoc Night 2 is available here, where I called it “Good” overall. If you haven’t seen the show yet, check out Mitchell’s play-by-play.

As the weeks roll on, I will compile some historical data and look more about week-over-week (and beyond) patterns in all of my ratings reports.
