Khan said it will not be the surprise in the ladder match and that it's a "major, huge, huge star in the world of wrestling: that will be signing a multi-year deal."

Right up until the ending that was one of the most violent, insane deathmatches I'd ever seen. The finish was kind of predictable but given Mox needs some time off to be there for his new baby it's completely understandable. That explosion though. Whoo.I've burned popcorn in the microwave and had a better deathmatch experience than that.

Still a great PPV tho. Loving Jericho in the tag ranks.

If it had been a cinematic match or there was no fans there they could have had the countdown to explosion and had Eddie dive onto Mox to save him with a huge megaton explosion sound effect (or special effect) and faded to black when you heard it which would have given the impression that there was a big explosion without no one getting unecessarily hurt.

They can spin it quite easily that Kenny did it deliberately to play mind games with Mox and that he's not through with him yet.

Realistically could AEW done something like this?

Most FMW deathmatches were outdoors, like at Kawasaki stadium

Not with a crowd in a stadium much smaller than Kawasaki (Daily's Place seats 6,000, Kawasaki 30,000.) America has more rules about pyrotechnics with a crowd.

She is the greatest. Too bad FCC rules won't allow her to just come out and swear up a storm on Dynamite.

They should have xnayed the exploding ring/electrified part. A straight up Barbed Wire Death Match sounds like something out of a horror movie without getting campy and unrealistic.

I *was* impressed at the bladejobbery going on. No fake blood there.

She showed more personality in two words and two seconds than almost anyone in the WWE has in five years. I officially forgive AEW for the shitty explosion.

Holy shit. That girl has the IT factor in spades.

Her and Anna Jay could be mega mega draws if AEW lets them develop properly.

It was funny how she's too respectful of AEW property to want to hit her hard with the Mic and risk breaking it.
