AEW's Tony Khan dropped a number of announcements on Tuesday leading up to what could be a massive night for All Elite Wrestling. This Friday will see a live episode of AEW Rampage air head-to-head with an extra commercial-free 30 minutes of a "Supersized" Friday Night SmackDown on FS1. Not only did Khan respond by claiming he was ready to beat WWE's flagship program, but he confirmed a one-hour edition of The Buy-In would air on AEW's YouTube channel during the second hour of SmackDown.
But he wasn't done there. Khan confirmed that The Buy-In would have two special matches — Bobby Fish vs. Lee Moriarty and Bryan Danielson taking on New Japan Pro-Wrestling legend Minoru Suzuki. The latter announcement caused wrestling fans on social media to lose their minds. Check out some of their best reactions below.

This is The Fun Part
Tony Khan is on here booking Minoru Suzuki vs. Bryan Danielson with no regard for human life and some very weird guys will still tell you that competition is bad.
This stuff is so much fun.— Andy H. Murray (@andyhmurray) October 12, 2021
