So. This main event was essentially put together by Brodie Lee's son, featuring his favorite guys.

It's an unusual team-up in kayfabe, but these folks are making it work.

Nobody's gonna slouch on this one. Nobody. Young Brodie, -1, is right there at ringside.

Banger match. Good story, not a squash, because that'd be disingenuous.

-1 deserves the real deal, and he's getting it.

Shit, the show's almost over? How the fuck did that happen?

Heh, Snoop Dogg got pushed to next week.

SNOOP DOGG got pushed to next week, because this company wanted to remember their brother.

When the tears fall tonight, it's because the loss is palpable. We can see it, hear it,

and we can feel it.

It's a cold spot in the room that we're all working to warm with our memories.

The people actually in the biz see the world together, after enduring gruelling travels together, all to bust their collective asses together. Aside from their own asshole uncles and aunts, they're the sort of close-knit that can pick up with each other as if they never left off, even after years.

And Jon Huber worked everywhere with everyone, big shows and bingo halls. His extended family is as big as anyone in the business.

And they ALL LOVED HIM.

I'm just a bundle of tears tonight, watching these people for whom this one person, and his family, meant so much.

So, we wrestle fans generally feel a bit of this. We're connected through this medium we love. We actually do things for each other, help each other, solely because of the shared joy wrestling offers us. I've been gifted seats to shows; I've bought folks pizza. We're a loose family, asshole uncles aside.

Well, shit. Anxious millennial cowboy & the Dark Order doofuses,

with Silver wearing the gear Mr. Brodie bought him. 😭

I appreciate that AEW, TK, et al. have put together this show that can add to existing stories while also putting Dark Order over in The Exalted One's memory.

It's good.

Seeing Colt and every other member of the Dark Order fighting off tears brought me to tears.

It's gon' be like that the rest of the night, too. 🤦🏼‍♂️

We're gonna see a lot of people tonight giving 185% for a man they called their friend.
