OMEGA’S PARTING WORDS TO MOXLEY
After losing a fantastic match to Chris Jericho, Kenny Omega was attacked by a debuting Jon Moxley. Once the dust had settled and the Elite was left standing tall in the ring, Kenny had a few words for his attacker:
“I don’t want to talk too much. I’m so proud of everyone and I should be mad, mad for losing, but Moxley. I’m not going to thank you, Chris. I’m going to thank you, Moxley, because tonight, this is kind of clever because we’re in Vegas, you just raised the stakes.”
In his speech, he was referencing Chris Jericho’s mission to be thanked for all he had done for Double or Nothing.
TONY KHAN TALKS ABOUT CM PUNK
After last night’s fantastic Double or Nothing, Tony Khan took part in a press event after the final bell. During the media scrum, Tony was asked about CM Punk specifically. Last month it emerged that Punk was on Khan’s original fantasy roster. Tony said:
“What’s a one person wrestling company? There’s no such thing. He was on the first roster when I sketched out, like, ‘Hey, I want to start a wrestling company, who are all the names you’re gonna get?’ Everybody we got is on that list and he was also on that list, to be honest with you, but a lot of people were on that list. Most of them are here. I got almost every person I wanted.”
When asked about singing Punk khan said:
“I love Phil, Phil’s great, I mean, I have a good relationship with Phil, I think he’s awesome. He was not here, as you saw, I think that’s not the story of the show. That would be a real insult to what we’ve all done to make that the story of the show.”
