    I'd like the Owen Hart Cup be something between wrestlers from outside AEW as well as within.

    I can't find it now but I saw a post on Twitter earlier where someone thought "The Owen" trophy should just be a huge rib to really honour Owen's prankster side - like have the trophy be over 30kg and have it secretly stipulated that the wrestler has to carry it around all of the time :laugh:

    But anyway, this is great news!

    I think given AEWs history so far and partnerships, that's very likely.

    Also goes to prove that Martha doesn't hate the business. She hates the McMahons.

    I think MJF just has to make the final. It'd really give the crowd that extra investment to see the opponent win. Couldn't have a better heel to whip the crowd's emotions up, nobody will want him to win :laugh:

    I wonder who might win the Owen?
    For some reason the name Kevin springs to mind...

    Whoever wins the first one needs to be a face and ideally a great technical wrestler. Danielson is an easy choice, but somebody younger could use it as a big step.

    It'll almost certainly be one of the four pillars. Jungle Boy will be the favourite. He and Sammy need the rub much more than the other two, who have already been made.

    Would throw Pillman Jr. as a possibility as well.

    Good shout.

    I'm not really sold on Pillman Jr. yet. Granted this is his first push, but he feels a bit awkward to me. I suppose he won't get any better without the opportunity he's getting.

    Seen someone come up with the suggestion that the final take place in Canada. That would be excellent.

    That Bryan Danielson’s pretty good, isn’t he...

    Yeah, he has potential. Could see him learning a lot under The Miz if he gets a shot with the WWE.

    The crowd played its part better than I think anyone envisioned. Great match.

    Omega vs Danielson was superb. Sting looked great too in his tag vs FTR.

    They’d still manage to waste his potential by giving him a midget B+ player goat gimmick whilst pushing Batista or something

    That pop just for the bell was insane.

    Charlie Dempsey is on NXT UK.

    Who you all ask?
    Bailey Matthews (huh?) son on William Regal.

    Also it would appear that Australian wrestler Shane Thorn from Australia is changing his gimmick from slapjack to dressing like he’s from the Australian outback because he’s Australian
