My thoughts: meh. If PAC didn't want to lose cleanly as DG champ and AEW doesn't want that to screw with future bookings than I guess push the van down the road and you have a potential super villain in a year or so. I'd rather they call it off than awkwardly have him win a few matches and either dip out or always have fluke finishes. I'm going to hold harsh judgement until the event to see how they either replace him or come up with a reason for me to mark out.
I get both sides. If they agreed on an angle and it fell through or if there wasn't established details, I could see one side or the other looking bad. But I don't see clarity on that coming out for a bit now.
