However, he also noted that wrestlers around the world should learn from Danielson and Page how to put on a show for an audience without doing over-the-top moves.

“I’ve Done So Many Hour Draws, Some Great, Some Average! Tonight, You Gentlemen Set A New Bar!! The Wrestling World Can Learn From @theAdamPage & @bryandanielson! CONGRATULATIONS! WOOOOO! @AEW.” he wrote.

Bryan Danielson and Hangman Adam Page stole the show

This seemed like an excellent booking decision by AEW president Tony Khan as it doesn’t make the AEW champion look weak, and neither does it take any credibility away from Bryan Danielson as a challenger.

On the same notion, the match was so buzzing that the crowd didn’t get riled up after the bell rang because of the time limit. Instead, they applaud the wrestlers for an incredible performance.
