I remember you. Whether you like them or not, WWE is the biggest and most powerful wrestling company in the world, which has been the case for a very long time now. Just being featured on a WWE show is almost a guaranteed way to be remembered by a lot of wrestling fans, which can lead to a variety of appearances down the line. That was the case this weekend.
Over the weekend, AEW presented its annual Full Gear pay per view, which included quite a few different types of matches. One of the more unique was the Elite Deletion match, which saw Matt Hardy facing Sammy Guevara. The two had met before, but this time around it was taking place at the Hardy Compound in Cameron, North Carolina. As usual, the match was rather unique and it featured two surprise cameos.
How have you been? Check out the surprises:
The Elite Deletion match included cameos from both Gangrel and Hurricane Helms, who interfered and got involved with the match. Gangrel appeared as a masked man holding and said that he was Hardy’s original mentor but Helms escaped and helped Hardy fight. Helms had appeared in multiple matches at the Hardy Compound before and referenced being stuck waiting for two years. Hardy said that he had to wait until he could get to AEW to finish the story.
You might remember them from days past. Check out the two of them elsewhere:
Opinion: It’s not like there is any particular reason for a lot of these cameos other than having people pop up throughout them. That being said, it’s not like this is some kind of horrible idea that drags things down. Hurricane is certainly a well known enough name and Gangrel is someone who was around during one of the most famous eras in wrestling. This is far from some terrible idea, even if it didn’t add much of anything.
