Recap of the 60 minute time limit draw from last week. The rematch will happen in 2 week on Dynamite, January 5th.
Tony Schiavone is in the ring, Schiavone introduce the AEW World Champion, Hangman Page. Page says after 60 minutes he was handed back his championship, he walked to the back, in his 3 years, he had never felt like less of a champion. The only feeling he has is disappointment.
Bryan Danielson comes out, he says entitled millennial cowboy still has the AEW Championship and he is disappointed. Poor Cowboy. The AEW fans should be disappointed, “I kicked your ass for 60 minutes and I should be the AEW Champion.” He wont cry about his feelings, he’ll kick Pages ass in the rematch. He wont be wrestling in front of these idiots tonight, nor next week until January 5th. If Page stalls for 60 minutes we’ll end up in the same position with the rightful champion without a championship. Danielson proposes on January 5th there will be judges, so they can proclaim Bryan Danielson the rightful champion.
Page says he thought of a bunch of stipulations, as last week Danielson did something nobody else has ever done, taking him for 60 minutes. If he had 3 more second, he would have drowned Danielson. Page accepts the judges, Daneislon better pay them in advance because they will not earn it, he has come too far for this, he has spilled too much blood for this for some old prick to tell him he’s not a champion, tell him he’s a B+ Player. If you are asking is Page can beat Danielson, the answer is “Yes!”
