History was indeed made tonight as AEW presented the first of their quarterly TNT specials. If you’ve never been to an AEW event, make an effort to do so. I’ve never had a bad experience however, I’d be lying if I said that I was disappointed with Battle of the Belts.
AEW made a statement on Wednesday, September 22nd, 2021; a statement best surmised by Yonkers native, Eddie Kingston: “New York is now AEW’s town”! The first wrestling event held at the largest tennis specific stadium in the world was a groundbreaking moment in wrestling history and serves as clear and present message to fans and detractors alike. It’s a uniquely special feeling to know that you’re walking into the presence of history and over 20,000 of us did exactly that.
