The Amazing Saturday Night Thread (7/31/21)

Hey, backyard wrestlers! Tired of maiming and disfiguring yourselves with everyday household objects to disguise your lack of workrate and charisma?

It’s still Hangman/Omega at All Out

Why is everyone losing their minds about Hangman getting cheated on Dynamite? They sold 10,000 tickets to All Out in about 8 seconds because they did the Hangman/Omega staredown. Why doesn't anyone realize thats still the main event? The reason I ask is they did the *exact* same fake out with Moxley/Omega about six weeks ...

All Out (Of Fans)

Have we come to terms with the fact that there most likely won't be any fans in attendance for All Out and that's why they're holding off on the Hangman main event title win?

C.M. Punk in AEW

So sloppy drunk Adam Page can't win the big one, which opens the door for Straight Edge Savior Punk to come in, get Page clean and sober, and help him finally beat Omega for the title, right?

Darsow as Smash
