I thought it was the right thing after he got out of Jericho dragging him back to the middle of the ring for the Walls, getting out of Santana & Ortiz interference, kicking out of a cheating-assisted Code Breaker. I kind of think they dragged out that ending sequence just to have Cassidy take the pin. But oh well. Seemed like a waste.
Taz bringing back the FTW title was not a major announcement that sends shockwaves throughout the industry. Somewhat nostalgic I suppose. But big deal, Taz is bequeathing Cage his old title he gave himself in ECW. Why does this send shockwaves? Bryan Alvarez was hyping this up on WOL today as well and made it sound like, "Well there's no way Tony Khan would promise this and tweet about it if it wasn't a huge deal." Nope.
I mean fair play to Tony Khan over-promising and under-delivering. They are competing with NXT over week, so they have to do stuff like this from AEW's standpoint.
Once again though, I hate it when wrestling promotions promise huge announcement and it's something minor or silly. AEW does this on a regular basis. They promise a huge announcement and it's like "OMG! AEW IS RETURNING TO JACKSONVILLE!" Sorry that's not a big announcement.
Frankly, it would've been better if they didn't hype or announce this and just have Taz come out to give Cage the FTW title. That way they aren't over-hyping something and unrealistically building up expectations.
The eight-man tag was fun. Lucha Bros. going over and finally getting a major win was good. Young Bucks eating a pin right now in this type of match doesn't really hurt them and it helps build up their eventual match with FTR in the long term.
