Indeed. We're all just one big nerd family.

I also saw a final fantasy 8 and a ultros poster at a aew show. I wonder what's this all about.

However, I'm fan of both, too. lol.

Holy shit! I just found an interview of Kitase and Kenny Omega:

While not FF related, I also saw a post that someone had a sign that said "nerf Sol Badguy" (Guilty Gear reference for those that don't know)

Just kinda crazy seeing all these gaming signs at a wrestling show. Haha

A lot of video game nerds are into wrestling and vice versa.

Now this is the sort of crossover post I love to see 🙂

6 : Anonymous2021/08/19 15:29 ID: h9jkles

Its true

7 : Anonymous2021/08/19 16:23 ID: h9jsnm7

They've been doing signs like this for months. It's been fun to watch.

8 : Anonymous2021/08/19 17:00 ID: h9jy121

Can't wait for the opposite sign next week

9 : Anonymous2021/08/19 18:03 ID: h9k76at

The JRPG Wars have on going for a while and it's always fun to see what signs come up every week.

Also #FreeMVC2 and stan fromis_9.

For those of you who do not follow wrestling and are unaware:

Kenny Omega, the dude on the left side of the screenshot, has a finishing maneuver called the "One Winged Angel" and another signature move called the "V-Trigger".

ID: h9l29wq

Interesting. I'm AEW Fan, but somehow I never made this connection of his finisher and final fantasy. lol.

Kenny Omega, the Bucks, Hikaru Shida, and Cody all are nerds and I love it.

ID: h9l4k61

Fun Fact: Hikaru Shida literally won her Women's Championship while cosplaying as Tifa.

Kefka just threw temper tantrums the whole time. Then his speech at the end was out of tone with his character. Sephiroth was much better.

ID: h9kj0pt

Didn't sephiroth also threw tantrums about his mother? You can simplify everything to sound stupid.

ID: h9ke0g0

Seriously, Kefka's entire motivation is 'he's a crazy bad guy'

All he needs is some "ha ha ha" tattoos

ID: h9k4ebf

At least Kefka has agency. That's right, I went there.

Its honestly getting annoying. I get the impression that these people just want to say provocative bs to get attention. Even the takes I agree with feel insufferable.

Moot point when Kuja is better than all both of them.

Kuja isn't even the final boss of his game

Oh for sure.

Never been so underwhelmed as when I played FF6 with the expectation of finding a morally ambiguous, well-rounded villain....

ID: h9jgh30

Where did you get the expectation that Kefka was morally ambiguous?

ID: h9jgu8a

Kefka? Morally ambiguous? I don't think you're using that phrase correctly.

ID: h9jijuh

Kefka is certainly not intended to be morally-ambiguous. He is gleefully sadistic and without any moral standards. Not every villain needs to be conflicted or ambiguous.

Kefka is effective because he is shocking. He is first depicted as comic relief, a buffoonish underling to the real enemy, The Gestahl Empire. His appearances become increasingly disturbing and decidedly unfunny—culminating in the shocking part I finale in which he is revealed as the game’s big bad.

You can think of Kefka in a few different ways: an agent of chaos a la The Joker; a metaphor for the destruction caused by man playing god (his insanity was sparked by the Empire’s experiment of infusing him with Magicite); or a mortal attempting godhood (his “angelic” final form and his godlike smiting and apocalypse-creating).

He is a terrific villain, but surely not the kind you were expecting

Nev'r been so underwhelm'd as at which hour i did play ff6 with the expectation of finding a morally ambiguous, well-round'd villain

I am a bot and I swapp'd some of thy words with Shakespeare words.

What's a good place to check out AEW? I've been curious about it but the options I see are like 20$ a month.

ID: h9l4r3i

Just tune in to Elevation or Dark on AEW's official YouTube channel. Both air free of charge and without commercials and while a lot of the matches are squashes (one-sided beatdowns), they regularly have the kinds of matches you'd see on TV or pay-per-view as well.

ID: h9l5feo

I think you should Google WATCH WRESTLING and check the optIoNs to see what comes up.

It took me a minute to see the sign, because I kept looking where the little white arrow was pointing in the middle screen and I wasn’t sure if I was supposed to look at what looked like the Miami Marlins kid, the bald dude behind the kid, or the guy in the hat that looks like Kevin Smith

19 : Anonymous2021/08/19 18:15 ID: h9k8vnx

Praying the villain of FFXVI is on the level of Kefka and/or Sephiroth. I trust Yoshi-P and the writing staff to deliver an all timer lol

20 : Anonymous2021/08/19 18:46 ID: h9kdan2

I’m going to the show in Cincinnati in a couple weeks. Normally not a sign guy at wrestling shows, but I want in on the Wrestling JRPG Wars, lol

21 : Anonymous2021/08/19 19:39 ID: h9kkzze

I once saw one saying "FF8 is underated".

22 : Anonymous2021/08/19 20:52 ID: h9kvzf3

Haha, this was all started because of a PERSONA 5 SUCKS sign in the audience.

If anyone doesn't watch it, I highly recommend AEW. Now is a fantastic time to get into it with CM Punk and Daniel Bryan joining the promotion.

23 : Anonymous2021/08/19 21:34 ID: h9l1yk1

I mean.. I think Sephiroth is one of the coolest and most badass villians in the history of villians.. but he almost ended the world. Kefka actually pulled it off. He'll always be my favorite FF villian

also.. love AEW ❤️❤️❤️

24 : Anonymous2021/08/19 21:35 ID: h9l261j

LOL i saw this, and the secrets of evermore one the other night - i am sure there have been more that i have missed, but i am watching for more snes signs on friday!

25 : Anonymous2021/08/19 22:27 ID: h9l9ekg

people only like sephiroth because he has a cool design and you can't change my mind. his story is a convoluted mess and he has the personality of wet cardboard

26 : Anonymous2021/08/19 17:23 ID: h9k1f81

They had another one with marbel vs capcom. They are probably aew employees planted there to attract more people.
