Bully Ray has slammed the Bryan Danielson versus Zack Sabre Jr match at AEW WrestleDream, stating it was “too clean, too perfect.”

On an event that was touted as a “new era for AEW” by Tony Khan, Danielson and Zack Sabre Jr faced each other for only the third time in their respective careers.
Speaking about the match on Busted Open Radio, Bully Ray would explain his dislike for the match, saying:

“Last night, I watched Danielson and Sabre and I’m like, ‘I’m just not into this one.’ And then I realized why. There was no struggle.
“Thatcher and Riddle [in NXT] showed me struggle in their style. Zack Sabre did not have that … it almost looked too clean, too perfect, too good. And I think the lack of the struggle is what made it not as entertaining for me.
“I know that match was entertaining to everybody else and they loved it, and five stars and screamed to the top of my lungs. But it just wasn’t my taste because there was no in-between, there was no struggle to fight.
“Zack Sabre barely had a glisten of sweat on him when that match was over. I just didn’t feel like it was a fight, a wrestling match that had something more to it than what I got.”

ZSJ would comment on the result of the third match after WrestleDream, saying that the match to “settle the best technical wrestler” came with a “scoundrel move” that Nigel McGuinness would note wasn’t technical wrestling.
As can be seen from the video below, ZSJ demanded a rematch in either London or Japan.
Danielson reflected on the match saying it was the kind of match he has wanted his whole career.
