Marko Stunt stepped up in a big way last night when he teamed with Jungle Boy on AEW Dynamite against the Lucha Bros due to the injury to Luchasaurus’ hamstring. In a Facebook post, Marko opens up about the opportunity and what it meant to him.
Check it out below:
I wasn’t originally supposed to be there this week. Luckily, for some reason, they asked me to come in this past Friday, and I was going to be on AEW Dark this coming Tuesday.
In a very unfortunate situation, Luchasaurus was injured just 2 hours before the show, and they asked me to step in. The most nervous and uncomfortable I’ve been was right there at that moment. I was being asked to step in the ring with two of the best on 2 hours notice, on national television, for my tv debut.
Despite any of that, myself and Jungle Boy went out there and gave it our all, and we hung with, quite possibly, the best tag team out there. We proved why we belong.
Yeah, there’s still people that don’t like it, and don’t think I should be there, and that’s fine. I’m still there, and there’s nowhere to go but up from here!
Thank you to the ones who have actually supported me through this absolutely nuts journey!
Unfortunately, Stunt and Jungle Boy were not able to overcome the Lucha Bros and were eliminated from the AEW Tag Team Championship Tournament.
