• Update On Kenny Omega & Jon Moxley’s Health After Exploding Barbed Wire Deathmatch
Kenny Omega defeated Jon Moxley in an “Exploding Barbed Wire Deathmatch” in the main event of last night’s AEW Revolution 2021 pay-per-view to retain the AEW World Championship.
Both men took a lot of punishment in the match and they were busted open as well (tap here for video highlights).
During the post-AEW Revolution PPV media scrum, AEW President Tony Khan was asked about the health status of both competitors after this match and here’s what he said:
“Both guys are great. Honestly, I’m glad neither came out with a serious injury because it was a really scary match and they both put themselves at risk for a huge pay-per-view main event.
I think it was awesome. It was a great spectacle and we’re all lucky that the bomb going off at the end didn’t really hurt anybody.”
Khan also defended the ring explosion botch:
“I don’t know what people really wanted, unless you actually wanted us to explode the guys at the end, there’s only so much you can do.
So without blowing the ring and both guys up, I think the basic explanation is that Kenny’s ring set to explode, his plan, as a heel, to build this thing with a hammer and nails as we saw, the final bomb just didn’t go off.”
