Thank you to the men and women who have worked so hard to make @aew what it is today. I’m still buzzing from last night, and that was only possible because of what you built.— Bryan Danielson (@bryandanielson) September 6, 2021

- Continuing with the reactions to AEW All Out, Mick Foley has commended the promotion for assembling a tremendous roster.
Have to give credit where it’s due...@AEW has assembled an incredible roster and no shortage of compelling storylines.— Mick Foley (@RealMickFoley) September 6, 2021
Strong competition brings out the best in everyone.
"Pretty cool, huh? "It will be Paul Wight's first, DDP's last, Brodie Lee's first in AEW. I mean, I think overall, to be with DDP in his last match, even though like I was thrown in there at the last minute and stuff, it was awesome. The crowd was crazy for him," said Marshall.
- Vince Russo tweeted that he worked with WWE on a new project on Friday. He would later tell WrestleZone that the show is about wrestling ‘villains,’ but did not know any more about the final format of the show. Earlier this year, it was announced that WWE Evil is a new project coming to Peacock which will be narrated by John Cena.
Worked with @WWE this past Friday on a Project I think for Peacock. Pleasurable experience, all involved were pros and respectable. I really do hope that those who need to see my comments---see them. While I don't want a job, I am always looking to help the Biz in any way I can.— Vince Russo (@THEVinceRusso) September 6, 2021

- Speaking with New Japan's official site, Shingo Takagi opened up on the new faction "House of Torture"
‘Before we get started, yesterday was the first time I really yelled out in that ring in three weeks, so my throat is hoarse and my voice is pretty messed up. It might sound more like the legendary Dragon Genichiro Tenryu rather than this Dragon Shingo Takagi today, but let’s move on. I know people might be concerned for my wellbeing, but I’m fine today. Of course, I’m banged up from my match, but I feel good, and had enough get up and go to get up and go to the sauna this morning.
As for that damage, well, my neck and my back are sore, but that chair shot from SHO, I don’t know whether there was an extra little bit of hatred in that, but it hurt like hell. Still, I don’t have much time to reflect on that, the G1 is around the corner. I just still don’t really get what EVIL, and now SHO are going for. Even during the match… I guess they’ve formed their own team within the BULLET CLUB, what is it, House of Pancakes or something? House of Torture? I was close, but that’s a tough one to remember. Well, now you’re Out of the Picture as far as I’m concerned. I get rights to rename you now, right?
Anyway, I didn’t wrestle for three weeks, and dropped four kilos in ten days. That had me sweating for a while, and then I put five kilos back on. Man, I’ve been in combat sports since I started judo around sixth grade, 25 years plus, and I don’t think my bodies been through anything like a fortnight span like I just had. It just goes to show what the human body is capable of dealing with even though I’m sure mine is complaining about it. It surprised even me, what a wrestler can do. Anyway, there’s two more weeks to go until the G1, so I’ll be working to be in absolutely perfect shape for the opening matches.’
