Former WWE referee Jimmy Korderas was a huge fan of the way Tony Khan booked MJF’s turn on William Regal during Wednesday night’s episode of AEW Dynamite.
Korderas took to his “Reffin’ Rant” series on Twitter, calling the entire segment a “masterpiece.” For those who may have missed it, MJF attacked Regal with his trademark brass knuckles. Korderas said,
“In yesterday’s rant I talked about AEW Dynamite rushing to get to the next segment to get things in there, 20 pounds of potatoes in a 10 pound bag. But when they do take their time to tell a story, it does come off well. Look, I talked about the opening segment. if you wanted yesterday’s rant, you know what I’m talking about.”
He continued, “But that MJF-William Regal segment where MJF cut that promo, blasted William Regal from behind — they took their time telling the story with escorting William Regal out on the stretcher. They went to commercial, they came back, and they were still on that story. They gave it time to marinate, to breathe, and really absorb. The audience bought right into it. The only complaint I have is that segment should have ended the show. As much as I don’t mind the car-crash television with the six-man match — still, the MJF-William Regal thing was a masterpiece.”
