That 15 second pep talk was by far the best thing Brandi has ever done in AEW.

A bit unnecessary just to set up a match.

Are they seriously doing Janela/Sabian with no build???

this is WWE level shit.

Probably a stipulation match at the ppv

I was surprised the lashing segment lasted the whole last 13 minutes, but the drama was very well presented.

If only they'd drop this dark order shit like they did with brandi's group.

The payoff is going to be the return of "The Fallen Angel" Christopher Daniels, so it'll be worth it 

He's almost 50. If that's the payoff that's certainly not something I care about.

Who cares if he's almost 50? He's not going to be going 45 minutes in a mat classic with Kenny Omega. He's going to transition to a part time wrestler and leader/mouthpiece of a stable which is a role he's done very well in the past.  He's the same age as Jericho, who's killing it in a similar role.  Heel Daniels is a compelling character that we haven't seen in a long time, and never seen in AEW. It can be a very interesting angle if they do the turn and reveal right

This guy..... he gets it.

AEW is setting it up as a Penelope must be Janela's valet for 30 days if he wins at the PPV. Supposedly Janelope are on good enough terms that they can work together long term. 
 

That's some old school Dusty/Tully/Baby Doll booking.

Bad choice of words. I meant not announcing the match in advance.

What exactly is the fallen angel gimmick? I'm not familiar with TNA or a lot of Indy guys..

Essentially, a cult leader. A guy with a God complex who manipulates weaker willed people into following him for his own gain.  He's said in interviews that he had a lot of plans for the character in TNA that got nixed because they were too controversial. I think some of those may be in the works now that he has a bit more freedom in AEW.

It being Daniels was almost made to obvious this past week. Could be Daniels still, but could also be a swerve.

fair enough. it feels appropriate to me to do it on tv like this for where both guys are in the bigger picture. im sure theyll have some build from here for something else but if not thats fine too. they have a ton of time between ppvs and so some angles will be tv-only. janela could be upset about his placement but that another issue
