Or, IIRC, when Tony promised someone stepping through the Forbidden Door , realised that Keith Lee didn't qualify for that term and signed Jay White to appear on the same Dynamite.This reminds me of when Big Show came out and said there was a big annoucement at Revolution that weekend and Tony Khan hadn't actually put pen to paper on Christian's contract by then. I genuinely don't think Tony knows who Zack Sabre Jr is facing yet.
Rhea Ripley's out of action indefinitely after giving herself a "brain injury" by kneeing herself in the head on a botch.
This has to be the most injury filled period in wrestling in recent memory. It seems like going back on the road post-covid is kicking the shit out of everyone.
I totally see MJF coming in as a surprise at the end (maybe even to distract Cole or Page for a fuck finish) because it's been a few weeks and he can use the excuse that "I'm banned from TV but nobody said I couldn't show up at the PPV". It'd allow a feud to form and 'protect' anyone who is jobbing to Okada or White.It definitely doesn’t help matters that MJF is gone - guy likely could’ve made me care about at least one thing on the card, but it seems like he might be sitting out his contract…
I feel like the original plan was just to have a Champion vs Champion match - meaning at the time the build started, it would’ve been Punk vs Okada, and I realize the tease for Punk-Tanahashi disproves my idea - but between Punk getting hurt and Jay White winning the IWGP title, that plan got punted harder than Snitsky’s Fake Baby.So when Okada came out, you could kinda sense people were excited... I mean, I was. Then you just look at who he's in the ring fighting and you kinda just sigh. Confirmed 4 way, either Adam eating that pin, which actually does more harm than good to their careers. This was poorly booked.
Gargano is already booked to FL out of Chicago earlier in the day, and he's not a great technical wrestler.Tony's going to go for a name that people know. So it probably is Cesaro or Gargano.
