Pro Wrestling Tees announced on Instagram that Sting’s new official AEW branded shirt managed to quickly break the company’s all-time record for most shirts sold within a single day.

PWInsider’s Mike Johnson reported that Jon Moxley’s pre-match promo contained a reference in tribute to the late Pat Paterson, which was the closing line of “it’s time to make them go absolutely banana.” This was a famous phrase Patterson would say to wrestlers backstage prior to their matches when he wanted them to deliver a big reaction from the crowd.
