I really really hope that if Canada gets streaming AEW’s tv show that Australia gets a way to stream as well. That’s been my biggest concern regarding it. I want a way to watch without pirating.

Really interesting to hear Wai’s perspective on the live experience, the match was awesome with Roman and Buddy but a 3 minute chin lock would take me out

Fully prepared for it to turn out that it was Daniel Bryan and Rowan with them in cahoots with Buddy Murphy

I was really impressed with Daniel Bryan’s level of acting. He’s incredible.

Quality show!

During 205 Live, it was mentioned briefly on commentary that Lorcan was getting this rematch because Gulak won their SummerSlam match after striking Lorcan in the throat, with Drake Maverick reviewing the match afterward and signing this rematch. They tied this into Drake potentially reviewing the finish to Tozawa vs. Gallagher.
