“I’ll never forget this night.

“I’m so proud of Mark and Jay for forging on. Everyone grieves differently but you’ve brought hope to a lot of people tonight.

“If you are ready, reach out to that person you miss. Tell them that you love them. Never been a better day then today.”

He would follow this tweet up with praise for the AEW commentary team and for Tony Khan, saying:

“Thank you to @ShutUpExcalibur for giving @CapriceColeman & I the floor to share our memories.

“Thank you to @OfficialTAZ & @tonyschiavone24 for your hospitality.
