#6 WCW legend slams Kenny Omega and The Elite for making an embarrassing botch on AEW Dynamite last week
Disco Inferno recently slammed AEW World Champion Kenny Omega and the Superkliq - Adam Cole and The Young Bucks - for making a hilarious botch while attempting a powerbomb during an eight-man tag team match on Dynamite's 2nd-anniversary show.
While speaking on Konnan's podcast, Keepin it 100, the WCW legend stated that The Elite should have acted smartly after failing to deliver a powerbomb on the Jurassic Express member.
Inferno added that the entire group felt confused after the blunder and that they seemingly celebrated, worsening the situation:
"The match has had a terrible botch, the powerbomb thing where they fell down. They should have been smart enough to get up and do it again, but they all didn't know, nobody knew what to do, and they just stood there and acted like they celebrated when he (Kenny Omega) obviously screwed it up," Disco Inferno said.
Despite committing a blunder, the entire bout was action-packed as both teams displayed their impressive arsenals in the ring. In the end, The Elite won the match after delivering Jungle Boy with a four-way BTE trigger.
#5 The Young Bucks' backstage role in signing Bobby Fish
According to the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, Bobby Fish signed his AEW contract before his TNT Championship match against Sammy Guevara.
The company was keen on building up this match as an outsider challenging The Spanish God. In a surprising development, Nick and Matt Jackson, who are also the EVPs of this company, reportedly pitched the entire idea and made sure it was executed that way.
Bobby Fish's debut match against Guevara didn't pan out the way he would have expected as he came up short. The former WWE Superstar will now face Bryan Danielson in a singles match this week on AEW Dynamite.
