The Rhodes to AEW: "The Road to Fyter Fest" Episode 2 (and 1)


We're trying out a new feature here on Vundablog--possibly temporary or perhaps rolling into an eventual weekly feature once AEW on TNT premieres--where I (Derrick) will be doing some short little breakdowns of the AEW "Road to..." videos. I've been following these pretty much from what I would deem the official beginning of the AEW canon timeline, beginning with "The Road to Double or Nothing." Those videos were excellent, if you want to go back and watch them on the Nightmare Family YouTube channel. I especially can't recommend highly enough episode 13 where Dustin Rhodes is revealed as Cody's opponent. Just brilliant stuff.

One of the things I (and many others) find so compelling about these short webisodes is that they are, to some extent, the first real preview we've gotten of something like what an AEW television show could look like. Of course, the actual show could very well lean more toward a conventional pro wrestling show format with not quite as much behind-the-scenes content (which is showing up less in the "Road to Fyter Fest" videos than the "Road to Double or Nothing" ones) but some of the promos and video packages have been exceptionally well done and the behind the scenes stuff has definitely been getting a lot of good feedback and more than a few people have been saying they'd love to see the AEW TV show be a little more like this. It should be very interesting to see how they transition from these videos into the weekly episodes on TNT but either way these videos are extremely compelling.

We begin with the episode that was released today: "The Road to Fyter Fest - Episode 2" followed by a quick rewind breakdown of episode 1 (videos behind the cut):

The Rise of Skywalker Moodboard Movie Series: Midnight Express


Hosts: Stephen & Danielle
with the Midnight Hounds: Xena, Duke, Rusty and Morty
Continuing our analysis of what could influence the themes and cinematography of Episode IX we watched the 1978 film Midnight Express, written by Oliver Stone. A still from the film was found Vic Mahoney's office wall. She was the 2nd unit director for The Rise of Skywalker and her moodboard has provided quite a bit of material about the film.

Top 10 NXT TakeOver (and Arrival) Matches of "All Time" (the past five years, basically)


Welcome to Part 1 of our very special WrestleMania Weekend preview of a piece I have been working on for months upon months now: my top 50 wrestling matches of all time. It's going to be a WHILE before this beast finally comes to fruition as it is currently still in the research stage (I have a pretty good idea of what the top 50 are going to be, there's just a few matches I still want to watch before I start the writing process) but I'm so excited about it that I wanted to give folks a little sneak preview and with WrestleMania Weekend upon us, it seemed like the perfect opportunity to do so in a way that also simultaneously celebrates the biggest weekend of the wrestling calendar.

All ten of these matches will be featured in the final version of the top 50--and some of them might be higher than you think! It's staggering to think about the fact that NXT has only been around for five years and has only done about 30 TakeOvers (and one Arrival) and yet they've already put on 10 matches that I would consider among the greatest in wrestling history. The incredible storytelling combined with world class wrestling has put NXT in a class of its own these past five years, cementing it as easily one of if not the best wrestling promotion in the world today. These matches are the best of the best...

Vince McMahon and The New Day on SmackDown as Allegory of the History of Race Relations In WWE



OK. So. As much as I'm dying to get into parsing this entire segment line-by-line (some of which is cut out of this video but, thankfully, not the important parts--which is especially significant because when WWE edits these videos, they only leave in the specific stuff they want you to focus on and all the best, most layered stuff I'm going to discuss is in it), I should probably start from the beginning...

The First Official Trailer for Jordan Peele's Twilight Zone Reboot Is Here and It's Exquisite


The first official full length trailer for Jordan Peele's highly anticipated reboot of The Twilight Zone is here and it is LIT. I might actually have to consider subscribing to CBS All Access for this.

One thing worth noting that I think is very interesting is how many comedic actors are featured in this. Adam Scott (Parks and Rec, Apatow family of films) and Kumail Nanjiani (stand-up comedian; though he did write and star in The Big Sick which was more dramatic but still a comedy) have very prominent roles and John Cho (Harold and Kumar) and Tracy Morgan (Saturday Night Live, 30 Rock) are also featured. Feels like a conscious decision to create as much levity as possible within which to contextualize/juxtapose the horror which is really, really cool. Can't wait to see more!

Hosts: Stephen & Danielle
