For those of you who were there, how full was the building? There's been quite a lot of kvetching about AEW's ticket sales and territory fatigue so I'm wondering what the actual turnouts were like for the Toronto shows.

I'd say 85-90% full. Lot of open seats on the side hard cam is set up. For the most part though it seemed pretty full. Which makes me think those seats would actually be pretty damn good to have. Nice and close to the action.

This is true, but I did really dug the match... til the kickout of the 91.

 

Those two will have to shiv each other in a 3rd match.

I actually hope the third match is built up as this insane epic and then it ends in 15 seconds after Kenny just punts Ospreay in the crotch as his opening move.

That or Ospreay spends weeks hyping up a new move. A way to get the win. A way to #killkenny and when the bell rings he just hits him with a thumb in the eye and a backslide for the 1,2,3.

Broken arm for Danielson, out 6-8 weeks. Wrestled last 10 minutes with it.

It's a fractured forearm, but yeah, that sucks. His new ring gear should just be bubble wrap at this point. He was injured before & during the MJF match apparently as well.

Danielson may have won the match, but it rained tonight in Toronto. Walking home from the battlegrounds in a heavy summer rain was cleansing after such a monumental evening of Wrestling and Romance. Holy Fucking Ganso Bomb!

The RainMaker definitely brought the lightning and thunder after the show!

I’m now pretty convinced the seizure spot was on the fly considering it was right after the elbow drop. And that his quip about the magician not revealing his secrets was along those lines. 

Done to get the doctor to look at it? Good seeing you here again btw.

Very likely a poor decision to buy time. Timeline wise. But very much Boy who cried Wolf because he’s done this before, but with the actual injury this time felt more real.

Until I sort this out, Danielson is in timeout. 

Terry Funk is my GOAT. ALL HAIL GOAT FUNK!

Adam Cole just has the flu apparently, so that's good. EDIT: Good as in it's not COVID or anything, obviously. I'm not a monster. 😛

Punk being at future scrums isn't out of the question. 

TK at least confirms that everyone will be able to watch All In, but can't elaborate further yet due to time differences for the show. Sounds like it MIGHT be on free TV in the US possibly???

Painmaker Chris Jericho is coming back. Oh, joy.

Chris Jericho in the pressure challenged Sting/Darby Allin to a Tornado Tag with Sammy Guevara on this week's Dynamite.

Punk referencing the Homicide bit was the absolute BEST thing lmao. I had watched that several times this week since it was posted on here, so to see him acknowledge it was absolutely hilarious and perfect. Kojimaaa lariaaat lariaaat larriaat!
One of my favorite matches of the night in general. Thought Punk's work here felt like his 2012 heel run. Kojima looked great. 

I wish they let the Jack Perry turn draw out further rather than rushing right to doing it here. Jack said back in Feb that he wanted to be a singles champ by the end of the year or something, so he challenged for the AEW and loses, the IWGP and loses. I would've at least had the next step be to have him acknowledge Luchasaurus beating him to it, try to take his title and fail, *then* when all else has failed, he targets Hook for his title.

Another great Orange defense, tying Jade's record of 25 defenses. Huge pop for the epic Garcia Dance! One of the best bits going and always cracks me up. 

Toni Storm on the media scrum is greatness. Fantastic heel, loving her character work all around. 

Ospreay/Omega was insanity, wild stuff and I loved all of it. 

Marked out big for The Final Countdown! Truly awesome moment, like Miseria Cantare for Punk last year. Absolutely shocked by the finish, never ever would've guessed Okada tapping out. Sucks that Bryan got injured and won't be able to follow this up. Super fun show overall. 

Looking forward to the Return of the Painmaker!

Some of you need to rein yourselves in, getting an ok to good Bryan Danielson match against Okada is better than getting no Danielson match at all which was reality up until 4-5 years ago.
 

Was it the wrong spot to do? Maybe, but there’s far worse things that could’ve been done.
