Below are some highlights from the AEW Dynasty post-show media scrum.

– AEW Women’s World Champion Toni Storm took a shot at Cody Rhodes celebrating his WWE Championship victory in the ring with fellow WWE stars and his boss Triple H at WrestleMania 40:

“For every one of you who saw me all those years ago and thought, ‘She has potential’. You had absolutely no idea it was going to get this good, did you? Tomorrow morning, your headlines should read, ‘Holy f**k was I wrong’.

[Tony Khan], I promise no matter how many matches I win, no matter how many stories I finish, I will never call you into the ring to celebrate with me. Being Timeless means I’m not on your watch. My success is my own, and you’re damn lucky to be a part of it.”

– Will Ospreay said the following about taking a shot at Triple H during a recent promo on Dynamite:

“I don’t want to address it anymore. I can remember a generation of when I grew up where like, you throw a jab, I throw one back. Although I wasn’t mentioned by name, it was clearly about me. So, all due respect, I’m kind of done mentioning anyone over there now. I don’t want to do that anymore because I feel I lowered myself to that standard. I don’t need to do that anymore.

Look, what I just did in the ring with Bryan… that’s only match two from pay-per-view. I’ve got a f**kload more to go down. So, with all due respect, if you take everything into consideration, of course, I’m annoyed about a jab that I took. I threw one back. I don’t think it was anything bad. It’s a joke from 20 years ago, for f**k sake. Don’t be too butthurt.

That’s the first time I’ve ever experienced true tribalism between the two. It’s not nice. It’s unnecessary. I’m over it. I can’t be bothered with it. I just want to be focused on promoting AEW. I don’t regret what I said. I’m not saying that now.

You take the entire thing into consideration, it did piss me off, but from this day on, I won’t go down that road. I don’t need to. I’m the best wrestler in the world. I don’t need to f**k with guys below me.”

– New AEW World Champion Swerve Strickland gave a shout out to Kofi Kingston, as he said Kofi’s WWE Championship victory at WrestleMania 35 in 2019 motivated him and he wanted to do the same for the next generation.
