As seen during AEW Battle of the Belts VII, the TNT feed cut out in the middle of Toni Storm’s match against Taya Valkyrie for the women’s title due to a thunderstorm.

During Wrestling Observer Radio, Dave Meltzer of revealed that he gave advice to AEW President Tony Khan about how to handle the situation…

“I sent a message to Tony Khan, because remember when they came back, they didn’t tell people the finish. I think they thought people knew the finish. They came back, and they were doing this match, and they went to the next thing. And I said, ‘You’ve got to tell the people who won that match, because we don’t know, and if you get chance, you should put the finish on’, which they did end up putting the finish on right at the end of the show.” (quote courtesy of
