It’s certainly now what you would expect. AEW is one of the most unique wrestling companies in the world as they skipped the part focused on building themselves up and jumped straight into being the second biggest wrestling company in the United States. Part of what has made it work has been presenting a pretty unique style of wrestling, including different types of entertainment. This is the sort of thing that can make for an interesting change of pace from time to time and if the fans know what is coming, it can make things even better. If it involves a wrestler stripping…well your individual tastes may vary.
AEW has released a new video showing what took place after last week’s Dynamite went off the air. The video includes Cody and Nick Jackson coming to the ring to congratulate Darby Allin on a great main event performance. However, Matt Jackson was missing but came out on his own a few moments later. Nick sent him to the back though and insisted that Matt put on the shirt, which tied back into an idea from Being The Elite.
Matt came back out a few seconds later in a series of different, mismatched attire. The idea was that each part was some form of a best selling item from AEW. The three of them wound up giving away every piece of merchandise, plus Brandon Cutler’s shirt, Cody’s tie and even ring announcer Justin Roberts himself. Cody went on to thank the fans for supporting them to end the show.
It was quite the moment. Check out the big ending:
Opinion: This is the kind of thing that AEW should keep doing as it feels unique. How often do any WWE wrestlers come out for a more personal bit like this? Instead, they keep a firm distance between themselves and the fans, as their shows usually end with another match that the fans have seen before. Why not do something a little more unique like this every now and then? Finishing the night with a match is fine, but have one of the wrestlers, as in the people the fans paid to see, thank them and maybe have a quick chat, just for the sake of spicing things up a bit and making them feel more personal.
