That’s a twist. There are several different ways to present a wrestling storyline, with some of them being fairly obvious. You can see where things are going from the start and then the story does not veer too far one way or another. That is not always how things go though, as occasionally there will be a major twist. We saw another one this week, even if it was the most logical surprise you could have.
IN CASE YOU MISSED IT: They’re Back: Two Surprise Returns Take Place On AEW Dynamite
This week’s AEW Dynamite featured the first comments from Maxwell Jacob Friedman since he wont he World Title at Full Gear with the help of William Regal. During Friedman’s comments, he spoke about how great Regal was before using Regal’s brass knuckles to attack Regal from behind. Friedman then spoke to the unconscious Regal, using the same terms that Regal used in an email to Friedman in the past, telling him that he wasn’t good enough for WWE. Regal was then taken out on a stretcher.
This was a big one. Check out how the segment went:
Opinion: They surprised me with this one and that is a great feeling. What mattered here was how logical things were. Friedman is someone who wanted to be World Champion, but he also held on to what Regal said to him so many years ago. Deciding that was more important than even being World Champion is what makes sense from his perspective and now we get to see where things go from there.
What do you think of Friedman’s actions? How will his title reign go? Let us know in the comments below.
