Sabian shared his thoughts on being the victor of the first-ever singles match in AEW history.
In case you didn't know...
Kip Sabian is a British wrestler who is one of the youngest stars on the AEW roster. He began his career with World Association of Wrestling and became a part of the Ring of Honor roster back in 2018. In early 2019, Sabian signed a contract with All Elite Wrestling.
AEW's first show, Double or Nothing, saw two matches being held on the pre-show. Adam Page won the #1 contender's Casino Battle Royal to kick off the show, while Sabian emerged victorious in the second match, which was the first-ever one-on-one encounter in AEW history. Sabian picked up a win over Sammy Guevara.

The heart of the matter
While talking about winning the first-ever singles match in AEW, Sabian stated that no matter what happens next, no one will be able to take that win away from him and he will always be remembered as the first wrestler to win a singles match in AEW.
I didn't know that we were going to be closing the Double or Nothing Buy In so when I was told that I was like 'OK, this is the next level now. It's not just a match on it, it's closing the show. This is important.' Winning that match too, as I say in every interview I have is that it's something no one can ever take away from me. I was always the first person to win a singles match in AEW.

Sabian seems to have what it takes to become a mainstay on the AEW roster for years to come. Hopefully, he gets ample opportunities to show off his talent in the promotion, as we move forward.
