Despite being a fan of the match between Kenny Omega and El Hijo del Vikingo on this week’s edition of AEW Dynamite, former referee Jimmy Korderas did have some issues regarding everything that followed.
In his latest Reffin’ Rant series, Korderas discussed why he thought the post-match angle involving the Blackpool Combat Club and the Elite took away from the match.
“As I say all the time — a lot of people say, actually — how you end a show is very important, because the last thing people see is what they remember. But when is too much, way too much?,” he said.
He continued, “On Wednesday’s Dynamite, they promoted the dream match of a lifetime with Kenny Omega vs. Vikingo. But at the same time, after the match, they had — whether it was your cup of tea or not, that style of wrestling, what a performance by both guys. And then after the match, you show a little respect, and then you have all that aftermath with Blackpool Combat Club and Adam Hangman Page driving in an ambulance a la you-know who. And it’s just too much, because you had advertised that dream match and people forgot all about it because of the aftermath.”
In today's #ReffinRant 'Dream Matches' are great but how a show ends is vital cuz it's usually what is remembered most by fans. 🤔 #StaySafe pic.twitter.com/NbKRBzfhaB
