End of Show
My Opinion: Axe/Ajax wasn’t bad, but it wasn’t that good also. Axe is starting to get a lot of heat, and personally I believe people seriously dislike the guy. Dizzie/Edwards was rather disappointing, it was a average bout but it could have been a lot better. Steves/AMIL was another decent match, but it was the same stuff I’ve seen the last three times they fought each other. Should be noted, that near the end of the match the DVD continued to freeze up, so there is the possibility I missed something. The lumberjack was simple, but effective. It may have gone on a little too long. Ephex/Brown started off slow, but picked up and turned into a solid bout by both men. Abyss/Runt was a solid hardcore brawl. Jason Axe getting involved in the main event most likely just gave him even more heat, as if he actually needed it.
