Cody also credited AEW President, CEO, General Manager & Head of Creative Tony Khan for leading the show.
“TY. Killer opener. TK led the show and Darby/Matt for the best belt in wrestling was the main event, big congrats to them. [clapping hands emoji],” Cody tweeted.
Jericho simply posted again about being “The Demo God” and tagged AEW.
