It did seem to wrap up in a hurry. There are a lot of things going on in the wrestling world at the moment though very few things are as interesting as the Wednesday Night Wars between AEW Dynamite and WWE NXT. The two shows are going head to head on Wednesday nights and for the first time in a long time, WWE is actually losing to another wrestling show. While that does not exactly mean that WWE is in trouble, it is certainly something new for them to deal with after all these years. As it turns out though, Dynamite wasn’t even done on Wednesday night.
AEW has released a new video showing what happened after this week’s episode of Dynamite went off the air. The show originally wrapped up with Jon Moxley and Pac going to a time limit draw and Moxley attacking the referee. However, after the show went off the air, more action took place, with AEW filming the entire thing. This footage was shown in a special encore edition of Dynamite, which was aired against this week’s SmackDown on FOX. According to Wrestling Observer Radio, this move was planned in advance and the original broadcast cutting away earlier was always the plan.
The footage, which you can see for yourselves below, shows Pac attacking Moxley again and grabbing a chair, which he wrapped around Moxley’s neck. Kenny Omega ran in for the save and helped Moxley get rid of Pac, who was then confronted by Adam Page. Pac ran through the crowd and Moxley left as well. Page then got in the ring and challenged Pac to a rematch at Full Gear. Commentary made it clear that Omega was not saving Moxley out of friendship but to keep him safe for their match at Full Gear.
It was a big moment with a lot going on. Check out the post show footage:
Opinion: This was a rare occasion where the post show footage actually showed something interesting. Quite often when a wrestling company does something like this, there is very little that actually feels important in the slightest. However, this time instead we got something that advanced two matches at Full Gear and gave us a nice moment as well. That’s not a bad thing and while airing it on Friday’s show wasn’t exactly a huge deal, it was something that would get you to stick around and that’s not a bad thing at all.
