After the main show goes off the air, AEW did a short tribute to lead engineer Brian Muster who passed away unexpectedly earlier this week.
Jerome’s thoughts: The show went by fast. The opening match was a lot fun. The crowd was really hot. The Acclaimed and Billy Gunn are way over as babyfaces. The rest of the show was kind of blah. Orange Cassidy is still over with the fans. I am sure some with see the All-Atlantic Title as a joke as long as Cassidy holds the title and carries it around in a backpack. Last week’s taped show was actually better.
