My Opinion: Nothing really stood out in the first four matches, other than Vida’s dive off the basketball hoop. Dynasty/Brown didn’t work too well together, the crowd was rather dead for the bout as well. Gordy/Springate wasn’t anything special. It was just Springate getting whipped by the fans over and over again. The first twenty minutes of the iron man match sucked. The next ten weren’t great by any means, but was far more entertaining.
