Agree. I think it's a shoot that turned into a work. They killed 90% of his heat with the Wardlow squash. They have to get some of that back, so now it is directed towards the fans and the boss. Right out of the Attitude Era playbook.
My guess is his no showing the meet and greet before DoN was likely real, but, to your point, it's being worked now. It's telling IMO that he was only talking about money when all reports said AEW was willing to give him that, and the extension was the issue.
It was a good sell job for nobody to mention the promo again for the rest of the show after they "cut his mic" and went to commercial. The whole thing reminds me of Dustin Rhodes and the Seven "shoot".
