Unlike in professional wrestling, the match ending because the ref caught you doing an illegal move does not result in a loss. Instead, it goes as a draw.
Hager had to miss last night’s AEW Dynamite because of this fight. However, he should be back for the show next week and Full Gear on Saturday, November 7.
Hager will most likely be in Jericho’s corner as Le Champion faces off against MJF. MJF is fighting for a spot in The Inner Circle.
WrestleTalk will have live coverage of both shows right here on WrestleTalk.com.
