Team Teamwork (Bryan Danielson & Austin Aries) vs. The Age of the Fall (Tyler Black & Jimmy Jacobs) from 2008

Post by TJ Hawke:

This match was very traditional in structure. The Age of the Fall worked Bryan over for a very long time, and they built to the A Double hot tag. The work on Bryan focused almost entirely on his right leg. AotF clearly did some damage on it, and Bryan was quite hobbled. So, with some very specific limb work done and a lengthy heat segment, the payoff would ideally include a HOT hot tag and a moment of significance regarding Bryan’s worked-over leg. We did not really get either unfortunately. For whatever reason, Aries’ hot tag did not really connect with the crowd beyond what politeness demanded. By the time Bryan returned to action, he stopped selling the knee entirely. This made the match fairly unsatisfying even if it was easy to watch. Aries and Bryan won after making AotF tap out with stereo submissions. You can skip this one. (**1/2)
