Bryan Danielson made his AEW debut at Sunday’s All Out pay-per-view event. However, he didn’t use The Final Countdown by Europe as his theme song. Instead, the music is called Born For Greatness by Elliott Taylor.

Danielson used The Final Countdown song when he was on the independent scene and ROH before going to WWE.

Dave Meltzer noted on today’s Wrestling Observer Radio that an attempt was made by AEW President Tony Khan to get the song, but it would’ve cost too much money to license the music.

“So The Final Countdown will not, as you can see, they played a version of Last of the Valkyrie, a remix of that. There was, in fact, an attempt to have him come out to The Final Countdown figuring the place would explode, which they did anyway, but even for Tony Khan it was cost-prohibitive.”

Although not officially announced just yet, the belief is Danielson will be on Wednesday’s Dynamite.

AEW Reportedly Tried To Secure “The Final Countdown” For Bryan Danielson

Wrestling Inc. 07 September, 2021 - 11:30pm

We would like to send you notifications for the latest news and updates.

Adam Cole has his sights set on one of AEW's brightest young stars.

Following the main event of AEW All Out, Adam Cole made a surprise appearance, seemingly coming to the aid of Christian Cage and Jurassic Express as they got beat up by The Elite. As Cole stood face to face with Kenny Omega, he superkicked Jungle Boy and hugged his old friends. The Young Bucks even kissed him on the cheek.

Cole grabbed a mic and put over The Elite, saying that no one can stop them. His debut, however, was interrupted by another new signing, Bryan Danielson.

During the post-show media scrum, Cole was asked who on the roster he would like to face. While he admits that there isn't anyone he wouldn't be excited to wrestle with, he did say Jungle Boy was number one on his list. Here are his full remarks:

Cole had been with NXT since 2017 and not only served as a founding member of Undisputed Era but also as the longest-reigning champion in NXT history. Cole had what appeared to be his swan song with NXT at Takeover 36, and as Fightful reported, had not signed a new contract as of that weekend. Cole's WWE contract (with the short-term extension) expired on Friday, August 27. During the scrum, he revealed that he thought his deal lasted another 6 months. You can find those comments here.

Mick Foley: WWE Is No Longer The Place For Talent To Aspire To

SEScoops 07 September, 2021 - 05:48pm

Wrestling legend Mick Foley believes younger talent is skeptical of how they’ll be used in WWE.

Foley hopped on Facebook to address the reason he thinks AEW has become a more appealing option than WWE for some talent.

“The problem is that WWE is no longer the place for talent to aspire to. Part of it is because AEW is doing a great job of attracting great talent, proven talent, building younger talent, creating storylines. But part of it is a problem of your own making. I think younger talent sees the way that developmental characters are cut or left by the wayside or in the case of Karion Kross, greatly watered down and even made a joke of when they debut on the main roster.

“If it’s not broke, don’t fix it. If I was an aspiring talent now, a big-league talent with a major decision to make, I’m not sure that I would trust WWE creative to do the right thing with my career. You guys did wonders with me, uh, back in the day, that was a different time, a different place. If it was today, I’m not sure I would trust the powers to be with my career in their hands and until that changes WWE, you’ve got a problem.”

Mick Foley has been outspoken about WWE’s decision-making in regards to on-air talent. More recently, he was critical of a chair spot involving Drew McIntyre and Shanky.

Analysis: Five plays that defined Notre Dame's 41-38 overtime victory at Florida State

SEScoops 06 September, 2021 - 03:42am

Hamilton covered the last 20 yards from the near hash marks to the sideline while the pass was in the air. Without Hamilton’s heroics, the pass should be completed to running back Jashaun Corbin, who was wide open after running by defensive end Justin Ademilola and cornerback Cam Hart, for a big gain and quite possibly a touchdown. 

But this new feature in the South Bend Tribune isn’t meant to identify the most incredible plays. The goal is to underline the game’s five defining plays.  

The Kevin Austin Jr. who repeatedly made plays in Notre Dame practices finally showed up in a game after a two-year absence from suspension and injuries. 

Three plays after the senior wide receiver started the drive with a 29-yard reception from quarterback Jack Coan, Austin beat cornerback Travis Jay deep for a 37-yard touchdown on third-and-1. Coan looked Austin’s way immediately at the snap and lofted a perfectly placed ball deep enough for Austin to run underneath it and outside enough for Jay to be stuck in a defenseless position. 

“He basically had a one-on-one opportunity,” Coan said of Austin. “I always trust Kevin to get over the top on that. I trusted him and he made a great play.” 

The passing game carried the night for Notre Dame’s offense. Coan finished 26-of-35 passing (74.3%) for 366 yards and four touchdowns with one interception. Austin caught four of those passes for 91 yards and the touchdown that sparked a third-quarter surge of 21 points. 

Notre Dame’s defensive front put pressure on Florida State quarterback Jordan Travis all night. He was sacked four times, but even more often he was able to scramble away from pressure to extend the play. 

That’s exactly what he did early in the fourth quarter to complete an eight-yard touchdown pass to wide receiver Andrew Parchment. On third-and-goal, Travis sprinted to his left looking to make a quick throw, but he decided against letting it rip. 

Travis put enough heat on the pass to prevent Hart from making a play on the ball through Parchment. 

“He’s probably one of the shiftier players we’ve played since I’ve been here,” Hamilton said of Travis, who finished 9-of-19 passing (47.4%) for 130 yards and two touchdowns with three interceptions. Travis also rushed for nine net yards (40 gained and 31 lost) with a two-yard rushing touchdown. 

Milton, who needed nearly three years to recover from a gruesome knee injury at UCF in late 2018, showed little rust in his return to game action. The graduate transfer completed a 22-yard pass on his first play, but the most important throw came later in the drive.  

Facing third-and-11 at Notre Dame’s 20-yard line, Milton delivered a 15-yard completion to wide receiver Keyshawn Helton. Defensive tackle Jayson Ademilola brought pressure in Milton’s face, but he stood in the pocket, let the pass go before Ademilola could hit him and put the ball high enough to float over leaping linebacker Bo Bauer. 

Helton caught the pass in front of cornerback TaRiq Bracy to set up a two-yard touchdown run for running back Treshaun Ward. The Seminoles cut Notre Dame’s lead to 38-35 with 5:36 left and seemed to be aligning a storybook ending for Milton. 

Notre Dame had a chance to ice the game away with a three-point lead, possession with 5:36 remaining and a five-yard gift when defensive tackle Robert Cooper was flagged for being offside. 

But a first-and-5 ended with a fourth-and-11 when Coan was sacked by defensive end Keir Thomas on third-and-4. Notre Dame abandoned the run following a one-yard gain for running back Kyren Williams on first down. Tight end Michael Mayer dropped a pass from Coan on second down. Then Coan was overwhelmed on third down. 

Coan dropped back with the pocket collapsing around him. Hoping to escape, he tried to scramble left just as Thomas broke free from left tackle Michael Carmody, who replaced an injured Blake Fisher. Thomas engulfed Coan for the sack and forced the Irish to punt with a little more than four minutes remaining in regulation. 

“We were first-and 5. They get an offside. We have to convert that,” said Notre Dame head coach Brian Kelly. “We had two opportunities. Now, our eyes were in the wrong place. We were running double slants on the back side, and Jack misread the coverage and there's some growing pains there. We just didn't execute the way we needed to late in the game.  

“We'll take that and have to build off some of those things. We were still committed to the run. We just need to be better at it. We just weren't as good at running the football tonight that we need to be. You're not going to get by running for 65 yards. That's not good enough." 

A game littered with big plays came down to the kickers. 

Notre Dame’s Jonathan Doerer won the battle by drilling a 41-yard field goal to end the first overtime and give the Irish a 41-38 victory. 

Doerer didn’t let a Florida State timeout prior to the attempt to change the outcome. The same couldn’t be said for Florida State kicker Ryan Fitzgerald. The Seminoles ended their overtime possession with Fitzgerald missing a 37-yard attempt wide left.  

Florida State essentially iced Fitzgerald by calling timeout to challenge the ruling of a Milton fumble on third down. But the timeout came so close to the start of the play, the snap was made and Fitzgerald hit a 50-yard attempt that didn’t count. 

Milton’s play was overturned and ruled an incomplete pass to move Fitzgerald 13 yards closer, but it didn’t help. 

Both Doerer and Fitzgerald made their only field goal attempts in regulation: Doerer hit a 48-yarder in the second quarter and Fitzgerald tied the game at 38 with a 43-yard make with 40 seconds remaining in the fourth quarter. 

“@JDoerer_11 stepped up in a big moment tonight and made the game winner,” ND special teams coordinator Brian Polian tweeted after the game. “I am so proud of him for preserving through some hard times. He prepared himself for this moment.” 

Doerer struggled at the end of the 2020 season. He missed five of his final nine field goal attempts in the last five games.
