When AEW made it clear last week that Bryan Danielson vs. Kenny Omega was the plan, there was a fair amount of concern that the lengthy Hangman Page story would be sidelined to make room for Tony Khan’s latest big acquisition.
In a strong segment on the Sept. 15 Dynamite from Newark, New Jersey, we found out how All Elite Wrestling plans to have both an immediate Danielson/Omega dream match AND keep the belt on Kenny for Hangman’s return.
The American Dragon shut down the AEW World champ’s “carny piece of shit” mouthpiece Don Callis, repeatedly saying he came here to talk to Kenny Omega. He also came to the company to test himself against the Best Bout Machine, the God of Professional Wrestling. Instead, all he’s seen is a guy who surrounds himself with stooges. Bryan had heard that Omega might have lost his confidence, but he thinks he just lost his balls.
That was all it took to goad Kenny into a match. A non-title match. That will take place next Wednesday on the “Grand Slam” edition of Dynamite from Arthur Ashe Stadium in Queens.
