Both The Young Bucks and AEW president Tony Khan claimed that the chair was “gimmicked” and the seemingly unprotected chair shot should have been safe(r), but the top portion of the chair appeared to hit the back of Cody’s head, which caused the gash.
Khan said, “It was an unfortunate situation. And all I’m gonna say to you right now, and I will talk about it more in detail, but you could build the safest airplane in the world and if there’s pilot error, there’s pilot error.”
