So they day that we have building to since January has finally past and now it's our chance to look back in awe at the first ever event in All Elite Wrestling history. Though a lot of fans have been shoveling the praise onto AEW and exclaiming that a war is upon us let's not rush into something and just step back it was their first event. In my opinion, we need to let AEW establish their own identity first before trying to figure out how they measure up against with WWE.
As far as the show I think that the main event was picture perfect as it was the right choice to headline the event. Don't get me wrong Cody vs Dustin was an incredibly emotional and a "bloody good" match pun intended. The embrace between Cody & Dustin was one of the best moments of the year in the world of wrestling period. Jumping back to the main event I will explain why it was so good it was so good that at one point that when they set up a table at ringside I got so lost in the match that I forgot the table was there until they went through it. I also enjoyed that they chose to end the match with the "Judas" elbow which is Jericho's new finishing move and was the perfect way to put it over.
However, following the match the event didn't end after the pin-fall instead Jericho grab a microphone and demanded a thank you. Jon Moxley would answer the call and make his shocking debut with All Elite Wrestling and proceeded to drop everyone with his DDT. Mox would even drop Kenny Omega with a DDT on the top of the poker chips that were at the side of the stage. I am happy that all the rumors of what he will do next can stop and we can focus on Jon Moxley becoming the star that he should've been in the WWE, but was never given the freedom to do so.
Overall this was a solid show and a positive start for All Elite Wrestling and now we look to the next event which is Fyter Fest on June 29 live from Daytona Beach, FL to see if AEW can continue to build in the right direction. Till then we just have to wait and see what happens next!
