In his complete on-site report from the July 29, 2023 edition of AEW Collision in Hartford, CT, Graham "GSM" Matthews discusses why AEW needs to do a better job with the ROH tapings at these events, Andrade El Idolo and Buddy Matthews kicking off the night with a wild Ladder match, Minoru Suzuki answering Darby Allin's open challenge, Samoa Joe squashing Gravity, CM Punk and Ricky Starks setting up a huge "championship" match for next week with a special guest referee, Bullet Club Gold in six-man tag team action, Kris Statlander's next AEW TBS Championship challenger, FTR defending the AEW World Tag Team Championship against Adam Cole and MJF and what's next for the losing duo, and more!
Despite some storyline advancement, the July 29, 2023 edition of Friday Night SmackDown ended up being a filler show ahead of SummerSlam next weekend. In this week's blue brand breakdown, Graham "GSM" Matthews discusses Roman Reigns and Jey Uso going face-to-face, Santos Escobar beating Rey Mysterio in the finals of the United States Championship Invitational and the unfortunate injury to Mysterio, LA Knight's quick win over Ashante "Thee" Adonis and how he landed a spot on the SummerSlam card, if Charlotte Flair and Bianca Belair could coexist against Chelsea Green and Sonya Deville, how Asuka feels like an afterthought heading into SummerSlam, the latest tease for something involving Bobby Lashley and The Street Profits, Karrion Kross vs. Karl Anderson, Jey Uso and Grayson Waller squaring off in the main event, and more!
In an interview recorded prior to the SAG-AFSTRA strike, Graham "GSM" Matthews chats with Heels star Stephen Amell about Season 2, wrestling falling under "nerd culture" like comics, attracting audiences that don't understand the business, if he's incorporated advice from wrestlers into the show, if he can outdo Bad Bunny or Logan Paul in a celebrity match, and more!
GSM then discusses the reports that Brian Pillman Jr. and Nick Aldis could be WWE bound and where they should be assigned before reviewing Raw from Monday night! He talks why WWE should be careful to not overexpose The Judgment Day, Becky Lynch beating Zoey Stark, the two SummerSlam matches that need stipulations, Dominik Mysterio defending the NXT North American Championship against Sami Zayn, Kevin Owens and Liv Morgan both reportedly suffering from legitimate injuries, if Morgan could or should be the one to ultimately dethrone Rhea Ripley as Women's World Champion, Damian Priest squashing Apollo Crews, more SummerSlam matches made official, and the World Heavyweight Championship contract signing.
He also has thoughts on Wednesday's AEW Dynamite including the progression of several storylines, AR Fox's heel turn, Jack Perry going face-to-face with Jerry Lynn, a three-way tag team main event, and a lack of build for All In. Plus, FULL PREDICTIONS for Sunday's NXT The Great American Bash, featuring an NXT Championship main event between Carmelo Hayes and Ilja Dragunov!
