The First AEW Show In ATL

Me and my son went to the first AEW show in ATL (AEW Dynamite 2/19/2020), and it was a really good time.

We sat in Section 114 for $35 a piece which was a really good value. Similar tickets for Raw I think ran me about $75 a piece for example.

The whole thing was a lot of fun, and I was really glad to see Marko Stunt get such a warm reception. Luchasaurus is absolutely The Guy over there, and should be strapped up immediately. 

The Cody Rhodes in AEW phenomenon is something else to see live. The tag title match between Kenny Omega (who I'm not a fan of)/Hangman Page defending against the Lucha Bros was EXCELLENT.

That crowd was also way into Kris Statlander who is someone that people I respect really like. I knew Orange Cassidy was a big hit with that crowd, but the pop he got was INSANE.

It's really cool seeing Jon Moxley (fka Dean Ambrose if you didn't know) make his entrance through the crowd. I think it would be a mistake not having him dethrone Chris Jericho, and soon.

As I said, we had a great time and I'd definitely consider going to another one (especially at that price point).
