I cringed when he took that power bomb from Brian Cage last week. I know he's done this his whole life, and he's still in great shape for his age (not on Sylvester Stallone's level but who is?), but I get uncomfortable seeing a 61-year-old take a big bump like that. I read that he got a little rattled from it, but I'm not sure if that is true or just an attempt in the press to sell the move.
But, yeah, it was really cool to see Sting be Sting last night. If he'd thrown in a Scorpion Death Lock, it would've been perfect.
Also, reports are that The Big Show has signed with AEW. I assume he'll move in to The Dark Order and take Brodie Lee's place. They don't want to give up on that angle, it would seem. I wish they would. It's okay now and again for some comedy stuff, but it's just not working, imo.
He definitely did and apparently it came as a shock to everyone in the WWE. I guess he was tired of being screwed over by Vince and their shitty creative.
I'm not sure if they'll do the Dark Order / Brodie Lee replacement angle or not. It kinda looked like they might be going that way, given that all the AEW pics of him that they showed had him in a suit and tie, but who knows. He's gonna be color commentating with Schiavone on the new AEW Dark: Elevation YT show that will start airing on Mondays, will also help mentor the younger guys, and will also wrestle occasionally (according to Tony Khan's statement yesterday).
I wonder, though, since he's debuting next week if he'll also do a surprise match. There's the Shaq/Jade vs Cody/Red Velvet match, but Cody f-ed up his shoulder a week or two ago pretty significantly. I don't think he'll need surgery (from what I've read), but I think he has a slight rotator cuff tear. I wouldn't be surprised if Wight subs in for Rhodes and gets that Shaq vs "Big Show" match that WWE never booked when they had the chance.
