It’s going to be the talking point which won’t go away quickly after AEW Revolution, and Tony Khan has now stepped in with his comments.
The final explosion in the Exploding Barbed Wire Deathmatch left many disappointed and confused, and caused Jon Moxley to cut a promo about it after.
Tony Khan has explained some of the logic behind why it happened the way it did, and what the storyline reason will probably be.
Both guys are great. Honestly, I’m glad neither guy came out with a serious injury because it was a really scary match, and they both really put their health at risk for a huge pay-per-view main event. It was awesome. It was a great spectacle, and I think we’re all lucky that the bomb going off in the end didn’t really hurt anybody there.
Kenny’s master plan, he built a dud. Who would have thought when he drew up the big plan with crayons that the bomb failed to take out both guys out. The battle really delivered, excellent action. Both guys came out okay, which is great because on paper, it looked like the kind of match where somebody could get hurt.
The plans we saw in crayon, and all through the match, we saw it. It looked very cool, and it’s a very deadly, painful match, but at the end, I mean, I don’t know what people really wanted, unless you actually wanted us to explode the guys at the end, there’s only so much you can do.
So without blowing the ring and both guys up, I think the basic explanation is that Kenny’s ring set to explode, his plan, as a heel, to build this thing with a hammer and nails as we saw, the final bomb just didn’t go off.”
Needless to say there will be some explaining to do on this week’s edition of Dynamite, along with all the other fallout and more on their new acquisitions.
