End of show
My Opinion: The opening match was really quick, and that’s fine. KJ is really green and given time will improve. He definitely has the size to be a good wrestler, is the talent their? Social interview segment was bland. Social continuing to laugh when the crowd chanted take her top off, killed the possibility that she was serious. Rotten/Juggulator was a squash. Juggulator was bleeding ungodly amount of blood. Reyes/Joker/Fine/Blood match was really average. Nice surprise to see Aramis pick up a huge upset victory, and doing so cleanly. AMIL/SAT was a fun contest. Reyes/Joker getting involved works out well as now their appears to be a three way feud for the tag straps. Wolfe/Hunter/Krew tag match was botched heavily and the crowd wasn’t into the bout at all. JCW/PWU is starting a feud, which could be bloody and brutal. Acid/Moore was a fun spot fest main event. The crowd really liked the bout and rightfully so.
