AEW World Championship

Bryan Danielson vs. Hangman Page (c)

Danielson gets the mind games going with Hangman by bailing and doing jumping jacks. The three judges are Jerry Lynn, Paul Wight & Mark Henry. Hangman topes to Bryan, does his outside moonsault and sizes him up for a Buckshot, but Bryan bails again. He catches Hangman in mid-tope and sends him into the guardrail.

Hangman favors the forearm but continues a steady assault. He gets a two count on Danielson after leaping off the top rope. Danielson drop toe holds Page into the steel steps to change the momentum. Hangman is busted open.

We go to pic-in-pic and Danielson is on the offensive. Headbutts and punches keep Page grounded. Hangman catches Danielson with a DVD. He later gets a near fall with a bridging German suplex. The fight goes to the outside. Hangman pulls Danielson repeatedly into the ring post. Back in the ring, Hangman returns with headbutts and it looks like Bryan is also bleeding. We go to break.

The men trade headbutts on the top rope. Avalanche fallaway slam by Hangman gets a two count. “This is awesome” chants. Hangman goes for a Buckshot, but Bryan drops from blood loss. Danielson rolls him up for a two count. Labell Lock on Hangman’s right arm. Hangman escapes, goes for a Buckshot again, but Danielson hits his running knee. 1-2-no!

Danielson and Hangman exchange more headbutts and Danielson nails a Gotch-style piledriver for a two count. Danielsosn smiles at Jerry Lynn (as that was his finisher). Face stomps to Hangmn. Hangman soon catches Danielson with a powerbomb, but Bryan holds on for a triangle hold. The fight continues. Back drop driver from Hangman. He pulls the elbow pad down. Buckshot Lariat. 1-2-3.

Instead, MJF puts him up against Wardlow nest week. Punk accepts.

He didn’t come out last week to help Eddie Kingston, he cme out to take out those two dipshits in 2point0. Out they come. Jericho calls them square head and pinhead. He grabs hold of Flyod and gets attacked by Daniel Garcia and the two. Out come Santana, Ortiz and Eddie Kingston.
